    Serving aboard the Ananke, an experimental military spacecraft launched by the ruthless organization that rules Earth and its solar system, computer scientist Althea has established an intense emotional bond - not with any of her crewmates but with the ship's electronic systems, which speak more deeply to her analytical mind than human feelings do. But when a pair of fugitive terrorists gain access to the Ananke, Althea must draw upon her heart and soul for the strength to defend her beloved ship.

    Once Ananke was an experimental military spacecraft. But a rogue computer virus transformed it - her - into something much more: a fully sentient artificial intelligence, with all the power of a god - and all the unstable emotions of a teenager. Althea, the ship's engineer and the last living human aboard, nearly gave her life to save Ananke from dangerous saboteurs, forging a bond as powerful as that between mother and daughter. Now she devotes herself completely to Ananke's care.

    Can't wait for the third book!

    As with the first book, excellent character development and interpersonal portrayal. Highly recommended if you enjoyed the first book.

    Ananke may have the powers of a god, but she is consumed by a very human longing: to know her creators. Now Ananke is on a quest to find companionship, understanding, and even love. She is accompanied by Althea, the engineer who created her and whom she sees as her mother. And she is in search of her "father", Matthew, the programmer whose code gave her the spark of life.
