Can a Self-Actualized AI be Stopped?


Girl of Stone cover

Trattora has managed to find the other three members of The Expulsion Project and they are off on an adventure to their home planet, Mhakerta. Mhakerta was taken over by a self-actualizing artificial intelligence known as Preeminence and its citizens are now prisoners. Marauders, pirates, human traffickers, and more do their best to keep The Four, as they have become to be known, from getting to Mhakerta and finding their birth parents. Then there is the challenge of battling Preeminence.

Hinkens second novel in The Expulsion Project, Girl of Stone, is even more exciting than the first book. There is non-stop action and layers of twists that keep you reading straight through until the end. The heroine, Trattora, is constantly struggling to do the right thing and not get them all killed without the council of her best friend, Buir.

This is a young adult, dystopian, space opera. The ending smacked me upside the head. It was indeed a shocker. Can’t wait until the next book!

5 out of 5 stars.
