Sub-Major Clement, a reserve officer of the third expeditionary fleet is becoming increasingly disenchanted with the Imperial mission and the constant state of war required to keep the peace.
When a strange set of circumstances allow him to take control of a Warmind, one of the highly sophisticated AIs running the conflict, he discovers the true nature of the war and the terrible weapon the AIs are designing.
Clement must find a way out before the weapon, or whatever is driving the AIs to develop it, destroys them all.
I'm personally not a sci-fi fan usually but I wanted to try to dip into a new genre and this was a great book to do that with! The story is deep and the author really accomplishes a lot in such a short time. The writing is creative and the story has some great characters! At times I was a little lost in the story and found myself having to restart a chapter to catch back up. Narration was good, I just wish the narrator had a bit more emotion with his reading. At times he seemed a bit monotone but I was still enthralled in the story the whole way through. Overall it was a great listen and I look forward to seeing what else Jesse Laeuchli creates in the future!
