The Turing Exception

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In the year 2043, humans and AI coexist in a precarious balance of power enforced by a rigid caste reputation system designed to ensure that only those AI who are trustworthy and contribute to human society increase in power.

Everything changes when a runaway nanotech event leads to the destruction of Miami. In the grim aftermath, a powerful underground collective known as XOR dedicates that AI can no longer coexist with humanity.

AI pioneers Catherine Matthews, Leon Tsarev, and Mike Williams believe that mere months are left before XOR starts an extermination war. Can they find a solution before time runs out?

An amazing conclusion to the series.

Singularity series

I really enjoyed all four books, the story Line was exciting and kept me engrossed and wanting more. So very today and near future that it really was hard to put down. CE
