Publisher's Summary

The machines brought society to its knees. Now, the last remaining humans fight for survival - and to take back what's theirs.

Junior, a robotics expert, tinkers quietly underground. With dozens of machine kills under his belt, he knows the enemy inside and out. 

Alpha0verride, a reclusive black hat hacker, uses the skills acquired over a life of shady activity to outwit the hyper-intelligent machines swarming in on her. 

Brick, a special forces operator and one of the few Pentagon survivors, fights his inner demons to embark on the most important mission of his life. 

Together they are humanity’s last, best hope - if they can only find each other in time. 

Leveraging his decades of active military and intelligence community service, Trilobyte is the techno-thriller only J. L. Bourne could write.

Endless technical jargon

I couldn’t make it through two chapters so my review is not complete. If you can stand hours of every sentence including fictional science fiction jargon than this is for you. Good science fiction has to be balanced with some sort of realism, but every sentence of the first chapter and a half is loaded with terms like trilo, first gen, advanced optics, fifth appendage, talos, servos, host body, tempest leak, vectors completed by the quadrapet scout, magnetic compass ( what compass isn’t magnetic?), have to say aluminum ladder instead of ladder as aluminum ladder sounds more technical, this will drive you crazy. That’s all I can say. Hoping audible will give me my money back as I can’t finish this mess.

A terrifying future, an exciting adventure!

If you love zombie stories, if you enjoyed Robopocalypse, you'll love Trilobyte!
Bourne has knocked it out of the park, AGAIN! With his terrifying story of survival against an insidious technological monstrosity.
The voice actors were excellent and added to the excitement and depth of the story!

First Book Listened too by this author... love it!

Had some recommendations to check out this author and finally did with this book. Definitely has you on the edge of your seat eager to find out what happens next.

Scary in a different way. The story paints a reality that is Science fiction but also very believable. Definitely makes you re-evaluate where we are headed with technology.

Wow! Another home run book by J.L. Bourne!!

I listened to this book on a long drive from Tucson AZ to Death Valley last week, it was wonderful! I'm a huge fan of Mr. Bourne's other books but this one was incredible! I love how he keeps the book to a few main characters (and a one eyed bear) and then tells a great story around each. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait until the next one is available!
