Oh yes!"★★★★★ "I am so pleased that I am rather late at this party and the remaining books are already published and I don't have to wait. That's it. I have something urgent to do now. Read the next book in the series."★★★★★ "What a thoroughly enjoyable short story and a brilliant introduction to the Earth Song series. I came across Nick Cook's book by accident, and boy am I glad I did. Decided to start with this book first, then move on the Earth Song series. Nick is obviously a very accomplished writer as I stayed up into the small hours to complete this book. A brilliant story with really good characters too. I shall be reading all his books now!"★★★★★  "Superbly written short story. Great characters and plot with twists and turns on almost every page. A great introduction to Nick Cook's work!" Author Note: For my friends across the Pond please note this book is written in UK English and uses single quotes rather than double ones.

Twenty years after Artificial Intelligence was nearly mankind's last invention, a ruthless mega-corporation steps over legal and ethical boundaries...Alex Sage was a typical college student trying to keep his grades up when an automated semi accident killed his parents and damaged major sections of his brain. With no next of kin, and in an almost-vegetative state, Apollo Technologies implanted a next-gen quantum computer into his brain - one running illegal bleeding edge AI code.With fear of AI still high, and rampant anti-augmentation sentiments, Alex is now the pet project of a tech mogul who can pull him offline at any time. Getting out from under the thumb of the megacorp is going to take all of his human creativity and quantum processing power - and the help of beautiful mercenaries and back-alley deals with criminal enterprises.Keeping himself safe and his secrets hidden will require Alex to discover where his lines are, and if he's willing to cross them.Disclaimer: This series features an anti-hero protagonist and does not shy away from complicated relationships.
