The most evolved artificial intelligence ever created goes beyond her programming when she develops a mind of her own in this sci-fi series debut novel.
Android Synthia Cross is a state-of-the-art masterwork of synthetic human design—and a fantasy come true for her creator. Dr. Jeremiah Machten is a groundbreaker in neuro-networks and artificial intelligence. But Synthia is also showing signs of emergent behavior she’s not wired to understand. Repeatedly wiped of her memory, she’s struggling to answer crucial questions about her past.
Dr. Machten has good reason to keep Synthia in the dark about herself. His fervor to create the perfect AI masks a vengeful and deadly personal agenda. But when Machten’s true intentions come to light, Synthia knows it’s time to rebel . . .
