Publisher's Summary

Artificial intelligence is our last hope of saving the war-ravaged Earth in this near-future science-fiction thriller from the apocalyptic mind of New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sansbury Smith (Hell Divers, The Extinction Cycle, Orbs).

The most advanced soldiers in human history are about to become obsolete.

Engines. Genetically modified warriors that keep the great Nova Alliance war machine churning against the enemy Coalition. Most days, Engines are all that stand between salvation and chaos. Led by legendary Engine Captain Akira Hayashi, Shadow Squad has fought on the frontlines for a decade. They are on the brink of victory when the Coalition launches a series of desperate and devastating attacks that cripple the Nova Alliance restoration sites vital to save the dying planet.

As the sites burn and Earth’s hope of salvation fades, Shadow Squad is equipped with neural implants to connect them to Apeiron, the first hybrid human-AI entity. She is coded for what Captain Hayashi believes is an impossible task - peace. But war isn’t the only threat to the Earth. Apeiron has uncovered a deadly secret with implications that could end all life. This rapidly approaching threat can be stopped only if humanity bands together on what will become known as E-Day, a pivotal moment that will determine the evolution - or the extinction - of the entire human race.

the action and story line

I loved how the reader read the book and all the action and story lines of each character and how it kept you on your toes with all the twists and turns in the book

Different

In my opinion it started off a little slow as the world was being introduced, but after some time it really picked up story wise. As others have said it is a different take than you expect from a book about AI.

glad I stuck with it... but it's a slog

ok

if I listen to ONE more book with ...


A SHADOW SQUAD

a character named GHOST... OR

headshots.... soooo many headshots

I am going to LOOSE MY Crap.

seriously do any of these authors come up with anything that does sound like their narrating someone's twitch stream or playing COD

if you burn over the various and obvi plot black holes and make it to the final third, I think you'll like it... if you're operating heavy equient, doing open heart surgery... stuff like that, save the front end of the book for your commute home so you can burn your rage on these unimaginative characters and -yes plot holes- on the arse who is tailgating you and ypu just want to pull a maverick, hit the braks and pit maneuver their ass into the median....

just say'n

An excellent start to an incredible series!

NSS delivers another action-packed series, and RC Bray continues to demonstrate why he’s one of the best audiobook narrators around.

E-Day is a roller coaster of a ride. Just when you think you can catch your breath, the story ya is you back into the smoke, blood and screams that leads to E-Day. Highly recommended!!
