The Pattern Ship by Tobias Roote

You have to feel sorry for an alien who wakes up on Earth after hibernating for millennia only to find his own race gone - destroyed centuries earlier by a ruthless hive of artificial intelligence. All that remains are humans, who have yet to evolve sufficiently to bypass their own selfish greed.

Nonetheless, Zirkos, as if sensing in them the potential they might one day aspire, chooses to befriend a US Vet named Zeke who possesses a rare component he needs to complete his spaceship's revival - a meteor fragment currently buried in the human's head.

Events quickly take on a life of their own as the duo battle to bring humanity to an advanced state of readiness where they can defend themselves from the coming threat of the alien's nemesis - the Nubl.

A remarkable technological development proves the catalyst to launch humanity into a thrilling new age. One where personal safety is no longer an issue and the incessant demand for war has been adroitly side-stepped.

Unfortunately, the Nubl have other plans.

I don’t understand all these wonderful reviews. I couldn’t get past the first few pages. The author’s simplistic style was quite offputting. I won’t be reading any more.

Got the first book only because it was free. Got immediately hooked on the premise, characters, and plot lines. Going to buy the remaining books now and hope they keep up the same character development.

Loved the AI intelligence and the Alien person. Zeke is an interesting human being and happy with the way he changed. Read to understand more!

Interesting concept and well written. I just finished reading this story and found it enjoyable but a little bit predictable - of course, there would a group of humans that wanted to use the new technology to take over the world. The editing towards the end kind of threw me for a loop when the story went into first person for a short time. Now I am wondering want happened to Ship and Zirkos and will Pod and Zeke go looking for them or will they return to earth to prepare for the coming of the Nubl (gee, I wonder what they look like).
