A haunted airship made from living people…
Nineteen-year-old hacker Tim Zaytsev is a traitor, but he never expected his betrayal would earn him the highest honor among the international community—a place among the Camaraderie's elite council.
Ushered into a glamorous lifestyle of fancy airships and a chance to use his programming skills to better the world, Tim is assigned the task of finishing their secret Legion Spore project—a living airship made from shapeshifters.
Inside the Legion Spore, dozens of humans have been forcibly hooked to the vessel's computer, but fragments of their memories reside in the airship's internal code as glitches. Their faces appear in the walls, and their whispers invade the code of the Camaraderie's base. Tim's ability to telepathically connect with computers means that he's the only one who can make the ship fully functional.
But programming a computer is one thing. Dealing with a haunted, living airship will not only test Tim's wit, but his sanity. If he can't learn to trust himself and his abilities, his mind will be trapped in the Legion Spore as just another whisper in the code.
Authors' Note: Whispers in the Code is the first book in a three-part serial. Each book has a complete arc, but the first two end on a mild cliffhanger. They are short novels, and are intended to be read in order.
