Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body following a total system shutdown and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone. But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Both the universe and the story are undoubtedly result of a briliant mind. Oh and the narration.. I couldn't imagine a better one.
I finished this book sitting on a train and trying to get some rest. I can't honestly remember the last time I cried but the ending of this book actually made me take my glasses off and wipe the tears from my eyes. I would never imagine getting this emotional over a story involving an AI. So thank you to both Becky and Patricia for this amazing experience.

Seventeen years ago, a long and bloody rebellion wracked the six united regions of the Kingdom. Now the new King wields the vast and unvanquished army of Midlan with his right hand, and with his left has granted a small group of thugs, the nobles he calls his Sovereign Five, unbridled rule over the other regions. As if this weren't bad enough, the King has also outlawed the practice of whispering - which is a problem for Kael.

I love the world that the author created, wish her a lot of success and hopefully we will see it on a tv screen some day.
