    One of SFX magazine's Most Anticipated Books for 2016. An epic vision of man and machine in the far reaches of space. Carlos is dead. A soldier who died for his ideals a 1000 years ago, he's been reincarnated and conscripted to fight an A.I. revolution in deep space. And he's not sure he's fighting for the right side. Seba is alive. By a fluke of nature, a contractual overlap and a loop in its subroutines, this lunar mining robot has gained sentience.

    sci- fi to make you think

    I'm a huge fan of 'hard sci- fi'. having been weaned on Niven, Asimov, and their like its nice to listen to a story you have to really concentrate on..Show More »

    Die for the company, live for the pay. And the ultimate payoff is DH-17, an earthlike planet hundreds of light years from human habitation. Ruthless corporations vie over the prize remotely, and war is in full swing. But soldiers recruited to fight in the extremities of deep space come with their own problems, from AI minds in full rebellion to Carlos 'the Terrorist' and his team of dead mercenaries, reincarnated from a bloodier period in earth's history for one purpose only: to kill.

    Nothing happens until towards end

    More action, the characters and narration mean it is listenable all the way through, but nothings actually happens until the last 1/8 of the book.

    The enemy is out in the open. The Reaction has seized control of a resource-rich moon. Now it's enslaving conscious robots - and luring the Corporations into lucrative deals. Taransay is out in the jungle. Her friends are inside a smart boulder on the slope of an active volcano. The planet is super-habitable - for its own life, not hers. But soon the alien infestation growing on her robot body is the least of her problems.

    Great build up to an unsatisfactory ending

    I enjoyed this book, I really did. And if you've listened to the first two, then you should absolutely get this one. Peter Kenny's narration is exce..Show More »
