Supernova (The Lightless Trilogy) by C.A. Higgins

By C.A. Higgins

C. A. Higgins’s acclaimed novel Lightless fused suspenseful storytelling, high-caliber clinical hypothesis, and richly constructed characters right into a attractive technological know-how fiction epic. Now the spectacular Supernova heightens the thrills and deepens the haunting exploration of expertise and humanity—and the implications that wait for whilst the 2 intersect.

Once Ananke was once an experimental army spacecraft. yet a rogue malicious program reworked it—her—into whatever even more: an absolutely sentient synthetic intelligence, with the entire strength of a god—and all of the volatile feelings of a teenager.

Althea, the ship’s engineer and the final residing human aboard, approximately gave her existence to save lots of Ananke from risky saboteurs, forging a bond as robust as that among mom and daughter. Now she devotes herself thoroughly to Ananke’s care. yet instructing a considering, feeling machine—perhaps the main harmful strength within the galaxy—to be human proves a enormous problem. whilst Ananke makes a decision to search out Matthew Gale, the terrorist she regards as her father, Althea learns that a few bonds are more desirable than mortal minds can understand—or control.

Drawn again towards Earth by means of the search, Althea and Ananke will locate themselves within the thick of a violent revolution led by way of Matthew’s sister, the charismatic chief Constance, who will cease at not anything to deliver down a tyrannical surveillance country. because the currents of previous judgements and current wishes come into stark collision, a brand new and fiery destiny is ready to be born.
