Publisher's Summary

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.

Great novella from new author!

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!

Average Sci-Fi Short Story Missing A Little

2.5 out of 5 stars

I always feel bad when I write a not-so-great review.  This one will be right in the middle.  About a 2.5 or a 3 out of 5 stars.  It was short (I knew that going into it and I don't mind a short story) but it just felt a little rushed.  Ironically, it also felt like it dragged on a bit.  That's why I'm so torn by this book. It felt short and not short at the same time.  

Vision tells the story of a futuristic time where everyone is at war all the time.  War seems the only way to... keep the peace if that makes any sense. 

Early on in the story our main character meets someone or something named Warmind and is given the opportunity to work with it to figure out how to do something.  I genuinely feel bad that I can't remember, but Vision was just one of those books that I read and instantly put back on a shelf in my mind.  There wasn't one thing that jumped out at me.

Overall, Vision is an average Sci-Fi book without much character or world building.  I understand it's a short story but it did feel like some reasons why were left on the cutting room floor.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook - it has not affected my review in any way. If you found this review helpful or enjoyed it please vote for it!
