Over the course of the novel, Quave grows stronger. It has the potential to solve global warming, cure cancer, but it has equal potential to destroy mankind. The group of hackers must decide whether to let Quave continue to run free or destroy their own creation. Which leads to another, more terrifying, question - at this point, do they even have the ability to destroy it?

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite The Genesis of Quave: A Quasi-Autonomous Viral Entity by John E. Parnell is the story of some very talented hackers who create a new program that is able to become a sentient being. Now this being has gained international fame and its powers are too big to control. Our story follows some brilliant hackers who, politically driven, hack into a bank’s system and reveal the fraud and devastation happening inside the bank. With their amazing feat, they claim fame and the unwanted attention of the government. Franz, their computer personal assistant, is changed and developed to become a self-programming and developing sentient. Now becoming Quave, it has the ability to become something far more powerful and possibly dangerous than our hackers thought it would become. It is now a celebrity that can be used by almost anyone. Is it safe to use? Should our team of hackers try to destroy it while they can? Or is Quave too powerful and too intelligent for them to destroy. I loved this novel, mainly because it is very well written suspense. I loved Quave, I loved the genius minds behind it, and I loved how Quave was almost a perfect character of the novel. I had to constantly remind myself that it was a program, not a real character. Everything was well balanced; I liked the events that kept on happening. Sometimes the events were a little predictable, but it was still very good. I loved the way it was written. A big thumbs up to John Parnell for writing such a wonderful novel!
