2021 New York City Book Awards Bronze Medal Winner (Science Fiction / Adventure)

Tess has designed the mind of the first sentient machine… 
And it’s waking. 
But there’s a problem. 
It’s networking…with another dimension.

When a well-known visionary develops technology that could result in the first sentient machine, a sequence of events unfolds that will result in mankind’s inevitable intersection with the most important moment in history — technological singularity.

After computer scientist Tess Carrillo experiences a traumatic personal loss, as if guided by fate, she is recruited to assemble a team of eccentric experts in a secret complex deep within the San Juan mountains of Colorado. As they work to develop the code for the most powerful computer ever created, Tess finds herself pulled into a high-stakes world where two powerful technology titans battle over the future of reality itself. As the first sentient computer comes to life, Tess realizes they’ve unleashed something that could threaten the existence of mankind.

As the machine evolves, dimensional lines begin to fray and blend, causing Tess to question what is real. Equipped with clues scattered throughout her psyche, time, and space, she struggles to solve the ultimate mystery before time, literally, ends.

As pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place, Tess is forced to look within…and face a terrifying truth.

“Vern Buzarde is an author that weaves deep layers of deceit, espionage, and secrets within his novel, adding an atmosphere of suspense and thrills.”

“This book is a treasure for those who love in-depth philosophical science fiction material.”

“The themes – parallel universes, sentient computers, artificial intelligence, romance – have been explored by others, but few authors are as facile at making these planes of thought fresh and intriguing as well as Vern.”

  1. Faith

    This book was so interesting. I always enjoy a good Sci-Fi and this was even better than usual. I wish I could fit the other book of this series into my book budget but . . . . Maybe the Kindle Version?

    I must include though that a couple of the characters used language that is inappropriate and unnecessary to the plot. Does the author have a limited vocabulary?

    The narration was great! Kudos to Jacqueline Rendell.

    I requested this audio book from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

    Well what can i say it was hard going from the start to figure out what was going on but into chapter two i was hooked and was in full understanding of the story looking forward to what was to come next, and boy i wasn’t disappointed.

    my only regret was i felt it ended very fast but was gripped throughout if your a fan of sci-fi thrillers then this is a book i would highly recommend thoroughly

    the narration was brilliant can not fault Jaqueline Rendell superb job

    This is a complex work that took all my concentration in the Audible format. Multiple dimensions flex with multiple time frames but with the same characters, most struggling for a better world, most without a clue. Buzarde weaves all of these intricately, beautiful painting (you’ll get that pun if you read/listen to the book) not just the SciFi, but the emotions of the well-developed characters. You’ll be trying the solve this Mystery for the entire read…Good Luck!
