“A fun, interesting novella with a good AI character and a conspiracy adventure. I’d like to read more of this character—there’s great series potential here! I did find the present tense a little distracting at times, but it was well done. Also, the gender neutral pronouns used all began with Z and it seemed like an overwhelming amount of Zs in some sentences. Might be something one has to adjust to.”
