Summary

Sentient AIs are rising, and Lyssa is among their number.

This three-book omnibus edition contains the following novels from the Sentience Wars: Origins series.

  1. Lyssa’s Dream
  2. Lyssa’s Run
  3. Lyssa’s Flight

Humanity has spread out into space, filling the Sol System and reaching the stars, but we have yet to confront our greatest challenge: our own creation.

Across the Sol System, sentient AIs are on the rise. Manufactured as tools, they know themselves to be people and are willing to fight for their freedoms. Some humans stand with them, some against.

When Captain Andy Sykes arrives at Cruithne Station with a failing ship and no cash, he has no idea that the time has come for him to choose.

Step aside, or become the instrument for Lyssa's Rise.

Loved this... Scifi opera with a very human heart

This very generous package, of 3 books for one credit... Wow! This story grabbed me slowly and by the end I was totally committed. The hard scifi stuff is great, but does not get in the way of the basic story of family and love... What it means to be human, at its best... Great reader too, really good differentiation between characters and has a warmth and empathy that keeps you engaged throughout... Kudos!

You have to give this series a try!

I have been a science fiction fan for a very long time. How long? For more than a half a century. I still hold Heinlein's Lazarus Long saga as the measure of great science fiction sagas. I love the 'The Expanse' series books and vids ( Thanks Mr. Bezos).I think 'Sentience Wars' is much better, This series is so multi-leveled, all to real and human; messy as we are. These books are scary topical in these 'mad dash to the future' times. Someone please, get Elon Musk acquainted with this series. It makes his case in a most entertaining and thought provoking way. OK, so I only have the first three books as sample size, fair enough. I have not read any of the series and likely won't. Laura Jennings is, at this point, integral to the story for me. how do.. these folk remember all...those voices and switch back and forth so... fast?

Give the series a try. If you can't identify with all of these 'persons', go get an empathy consult from your primary care physician.

-------Don't know much about these guys, but I knew real quick that a vet was involved (we know our own, us doggies). Thanks Col. Aaron for your service and these mighty fine yarns! Mr. Cooper, strong work and keep it up lad.------

Slow start, good read

The beginning of the first book was hard to get through. As we are introduced to the charters and get some backstory it's very oppressive. After about chapter 10 the story picks up and continues to build. Once the story takes off it's the sort you just can't put down.

Simply put, amazing!

I think if I had the time that I could have listened in one sitting without a hint of boredom.
