Wow! It's exciting to find a book with a new premise and absolutely wonderful when the writing is just as good. I received an ARC of this book, but will definitely add the final/finished version to my Kindle library as well as keep my eye out for an audiobook.

The chapters went back and forth from past to present, with the past POV offering a full explanation and understanding of what was going on 'now' in the book. I found the characters engaging and interesting, but I hope the next book, (please let there be a next one) gets into Elena's head more.

The book ended on a perfect note, the current story was ended, but left room to expand into a trilogy/series. Trust me, this is a totally new take on AI and I recommend it to anyone who likes fantasy. Despite the book being about AI, it read more to me on the fantasy side.

I have no qualms about adding the book to my auto-buy series list and as I said earlier, I REALLY hope we get more. ( )

Despite not being a visual reader, (aphantasia) I thoroughly enjoyed this novel; it delivered on the promise of the marvelous cover which compelled me to check it out. I suspect readers who "see" their books unfold could have a great time envisioning the various...technologies. Evenso, the adventure and mystery are solid regardless, and the origin story behind it all is enticing.

Clearly intended as the beginning of a series, this was published in 2017 and does not appear to have a follow up just yet. No matter - the story stands well on it's own. ( )

In attempting to construct such machines we should not be irrelevantly usurping His power of creating souls....Rather we are....instruments of His will, providing mansions for the souls that He creates. -- Alan Turing, 1950
