Iain M Banks and Max Barry collide with a splash of Murderbot in this wildly original, gripping and new trilogy.
The world is in the midst of a new Cold War – between the wasteful nations of the West, and the oppressively tyrannical regime of the Greater Far East.
Ruth Sharpe and Cassie Bailey are radical journalists and brilliant hackers investigating the rumours that both governments are covertly run by sentient AI systems. What they uncover is a much more dangerous secret – one that could spell the doom of all humanity.
They will need to cut through decades of lies from both sides to reach the truth and warn the world… while the clock ticks down to the extinction of all human life.
In this gripping dystopic thriller from the bestselling author of the Dark Heavens and Dragon Empire series, Ruth and Cassie will have to decide what price humanity is willing to pay for its own salvation.
