Deep space, an endless void, a darkened expanse of littered stars and limitless possibilities, ushers the mercenary Asegai to a derelict, drifting ship. His AI finds, evaluates, and links with the craft, promising vast wealth upon the ship’s recovery. As always, Asegai is cautious but perhaps blinded by the immensity of his discovery.
Within the command center of the monstrous prize, the mercenary pilot encounters a ‘life-form’ like no other – Contrarian, an advanced AI with professed feelings and counterintuitive processing. Before long wits are tested and a battle rages, pitting the gifted warrior against an intelligence bent on the destruction of them all.
In a stunning upheaval of rational thinking and the concept of artificial intelligence, writer Kell Inkston opens the door to possibilities that will make you rethink advanced evolution, life, and the true meaning of death. You won’t know until the very end who...or what, triumphs.
