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.

A Bumper action adventure

The origin series in Aeon 14 plays so so well on the relationships of the characters especially the children and with the added intrigue value of system wide poltics and technology make this a great place for any scifi fan to wallow in. Jennings narration is done very well and after 3 audios its very easy to follow although i haven't come across her yet anywhere else but shall follow any other works closely.
A great listen and a better enjoyment and more than worthy of adding to your library.

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.

Ok book, but Narrator sounds whinny

Could not get past the sound of the Narrator, they picked the wrong person to do this book. The constant sound like the character is about to cry is so bothersome. Even in tense situations it is like they want to cry. Seldom do I wish I would have read the book instead of listened to it. After getting past the Narrator, I didn't like the horrible father and the author wanted to make the boy be retarded. If it wasn't a 3 book in one purchase, I wouldn't have done the 2nd or 3rd book.

Movie Ready

Most stories you can conjure up the imagery for, but this was the first I imagined as a movie. Maybe because I've watched the Stargate and Expanse series...but Lyssa incorporates A.i. and makes space travel feel more like a possibility than fantasy.

As for the narrator, audiobooks took some getting used to with men doing woman dialogue and vice versa. This Jennings did well! The sorta well that's not distracting. If you're at all into space or sentient A.i...a big YES to this.

Enjoyed it.

Took me a while to get into it, but once I did, I was eager to follow along and find out what would happen next.
Interesting cast of characters.

I've read a couple in this world much further on and am happy I decided to go back and start at the beginning. I think it's going to make the rest of the series (plural) much more enjoyable.

Looking to see if the next volume has several books in it too. Hoping to find 4-6 as Part 2.

Simply put, amazing!

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

another amazing addition to the aeon 14 universe

loved it from start to finish 10 out of 10 stars and I liked the soft cliffhanger versus a hard cliffhanger ,absolutely loved the narrator she brought the characters to life perfectly and showed true emotion all throughout the story
