Book Description

Present day: Female assassins. Aussie hitmen. A super-intelligent human. The destruction of US government. And in the middle of it all: Trevor Leighton.

In Part II, we rejoin Trevor Leighton as he meets Ezra, a super intelligent human being simulating inside a computer program. Ezra’s self-improving intellect has paved the way to a wondrous time of incredibly rapid invention known as the “Technological Singularity,” and she’s effortlessly inventing technology the world has only dreamt of. But everything begins to go horribly wrong. There’s an attempt on Trevor’s life. Then terrorists dismantle the government in the worst attacks since 2001. And something is contaminating Ezra’s mind. When Trevor realizes it all stems from his company, Day Eight, he knows he’s the only one capable of stopping the impending catastrophe.

Part II of the Day Eight series continues Trevor’s thrilling adventure to prevent a disaster far worse than any ever conceived by humanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only gets better. April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a must read for any fan of what I like to call "realistic science fiction" meaning that while we might not have the technology now, it is very possible in the very near future.

After the aggravating end to the first book The Reborn (The Day Eight Series Part 1) (note: aggravating in the best possible way) this book picks up literally in the next instant. And of the three books this is my favorite. This one I read through in one setting, and has some of the most stunning visuals.... that's right I said visuals, I have ever read. The perfect storm of writing that brings the pages to life. I don't want to spoil anything for you so I will end on this note.

If you have ever enjoyed the works of Micheal Chricton or even Stephen King then this series is for you. A non stop thrill for beginning to end. I almost had callouses on my fingers from flicking my screen

5.0 out of 5 stars Where the series really hits its stride July 17, 2012
Format:Paperback
Yesterday, I posted a review of Book 1 of this series ( The Reborn ) and I wrote a lengthy rave review. I am not going to go into all of that here. Suffice it to say, I really liked Book 1.

Of Mice and Hitmen is where the series really hits its stride. In Book 1, programmer Trevor Leighton discovers that his employer, a tech firm called Day Eight, has created simulated human life in a computer. Not just Artificial Intelligence, but simulated life write down to the cellular level. These computerized people are called simulants.

Trevor has already met one fairly simple version of the simulant program, a simulant 1.0 if you will. In Book 2 he meets Ezra, the most updated version of the simulant program. She lives in an accelerated world, programmed to go faster so that she can complete projects in the real world quicker. Her name is Ezra, which is an odd name for a female, but it means "helper" in Hebrew and she is being used to work on any number of projects for Day Eight - new computers, cures for illnesses, etc. She has lived for thousands of years in her simulated world and is far smarter than any human being has ever been in terms of raw knowledge.

But, there is another, darker purpose as well. Leighton senses this and narrowly escapes an attempt on his life. When a series of political assassinations change the results of elections, Leighton works to figure out how Day Eight, Ezra and the political chaos are all tied together while he is on the run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting follow-up to part 1 March 17, 2012
By Aaron
Format:Kindle Edition
The pieces of the puzzle established in part 1 (The Reborn (The Day Eight Series Part 1)) shift into hyperdrive for part 2.

This is a fun and fast-paced story that made me excited about the future of technology in the same way that books like 'Snow Crash' and 'Daemon' did.

I recommend this series to anyone who is interested in how technology is shaping our world and the amazing possibilities that the future holds for us.

I can't wait for part 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ezra - I love her May 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say that the development of Ezra in this part of the story was really well done. I enjoyed it even more than the first part and could not wait to get to the final book. It takes some talent to write about an entity like Ezra and the author has plenty of that. Great Job!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - refreshing twist on the story April 6, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was VERY enjoyable and an improvement over the first in the series. I read all kinds of different books and this flowed well with the story, while taking a very interesting perspective on a possible explanation for technological advances. I don't want to spoil this for anyone so I won't reveal any parts of the story. I strongly recommend reading this book and the series. You will not be disappointed.

Continuation of Book 1 which you really must read first and you won't get an ending unless you read Book 3. Love the title!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent youth technothriller
Vol 2 of three, this one moves a bit faster but is frankly still to shallow to be more than a fun read. Good for airplane trips or bus rides. Entertaining but not deep.
