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 destroys Miami. In the grim aftermath, a powerful underground AI collective known as XOR decides that AI can longer coexist with humanity.
AI pioneers Catherine Mathews, Leon Tsarev, and Mike Williams believe that mere months are left before XOR starts an extermination war. Can they find a solution before their time runs out?
"The Turing Exception (Singularity #4)" Reviews
I was unable to set this book down once I started reading it, it kept me engaged from beginning to end. While I did find the ending a bit of a surprise I did sit back and realized that this was the natural ending for this series, but it does leave enough open that should the author chose to he could very well continue this series. William Hertlings author skills have definitely matured since the first release of Avagadro Corp, it is great to see how he has grown as an author and his novels now have the finished polish of a well seasoned writer. I was completely surprised and humbled to see my name mentioned in his closing notes as a supporter of his work via Patreon. Thank you for the kind acknowledgement.
This book was amazing! The story was captivating, the multiple points of view really added depth, and the ending was beautiful! [spoilers removed][spoilers removed]
This one gets off to a quick start. At first, the breakneck pacing bothered me, but I really got into it as I went along. The style reminds me a bit of Bruce Sterling's "Schismatrix," lots of raw, fast information, very cyberpunk. Computer nerd types will like this one; I don't want to get into details for fear of spoilers.
I was looking forward to read this book as previous parts were promising.
Lets say, I did not enjoy it as the previous ones, perhaps because the story did not end very well.
Just an idea to take away from this book series is that the role of master and puppet can switch quickly.
The last volume in this series becomes more a apocalypse fantasy than thriller speculation. Nice to put a cap on the series, but less thought provoking than the previous volumes.
