reat terran space opera. Thinking on the plot (alien crash lands on earth, liases, world peace ensues), makes it sound rather boring, so I suppose that the interest and engagement comes from the execution, which is skillful and subtle. I never felt beat over the head, except in discussing the different aliens, which are a blip on the larger plot at this point in the story, ending aside.

A gripping story of Alien meets Human
was intrigued by the introduction of this book, advanced alien meets human and somehow the connection is meant to help humanity. The author didn't let me down for after a very good backstory set up that laid out the arc of the story without giving anything away, the story propelled me into the lives and decisions of personalities, human and AI.
As a software developer I had an affinity towards books that deal with AI and in this first novel, the author did a good job of give a reasonable suspension of disbelief in regards to its, and the aliens' actions regarding the main character. By the end of the book I was fully engaged, on the edge of my proverbial seat and desperate to read the next book to see what happens to the main characters.
All in all a very good read and a good lead in to the next book in the series.

An excellent read.
A excellent start to this writers series of first contact with an Alien Race and humans on Earth. When an Artificial Intelligence finds itself and its creator unable to escape its enemy’s, it chooses to find somewhere to land. The AI waits until the conditions of the planet release it from the surrounding landmass to begin to rebuild itself. The creator had its own downloaded consciousness implanted into the AI’s data banks and comes back to consciousness and creates a body to place itself in. Together they study the planet and the higher sentient life forms on the planet. Finding a metal that should not be on this planet, in the body of the human and which is also killing the human, the AI and its creator transport the human to its ship. I enjoy first contact scenarios and this one is very good. The steps are not rushed and seem logical. So a solid 5 stars from my opinion.
