Publisher's Summary

In the year 2043, humans and AI coexist in a precarious balance of power enforced by a rigid caste reputation system designed to ensure that only those AI who are trustworthy and contribute to human society increase in power.

Everything changes when a runaway nanotech event leads to the destruction of Miami. In the grim aftermath, a powerful underground AI collective known as XOR concludes that AI can no longer coexist with humanity.

AI pioneers Catherine Matthews, Leon Tsarev, and Mike Williams believe that mere months are left before XOR starts an extermination war. Can they find a solution before time runs out?

    "Fantastic story line, always gripping"

    This story follows on in to the future, the characters from previous books are here and the story is gripping as usual.
    The story can jump around a little, but stay with it and you'll build a great picture.
    Enjoy!

    "Unoriginal"

    Struggled to get through this due to the shallow characters through which the story is told. The material never goes beyond mainstream science and technology predictions that you will come across in Nature magazine or Ted Talks. It was like a dramatisation of cliche futurology such as AI, nano tech and associated ethical implications but missing an original angle. The author may have been aiming for a movie deal as the story is suitably light and shallow. And it might be better on screen actually.

    "Not a good ending story"

    I loved the other books in the series, but this one seemed uninspired and monotonous. I had to push myself to finish it, hoping that it would get better. It didn't!

    Story
    "I think a Vol. 5 is in order!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Turing Exception to be better than the print version?

    What's print?


    What other book might you compare The Turing Exception to and why?

    There are many books about Augmented reality and A.I. these days but this one is unique. I felt like this one was more of a screenplay for some reason.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when Cat is inside here friends VR world. I think its how most people would choose to use such tech which speaks volumes and has a deeper meaning.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This book was less moving then every other in the series. That's why I feel there needs to be a 5th.


    Any additional comments?

    Please come out with another in this series. It's too good to end this way.
