The Daedalus Code by Colin F. Barnes is a short novella that tracks Phaedra and Aegus as they bore deep into the AI networks of New Crete, putting their trust in an unproven lawbreaker, The Cretan, and their lives and careers on the line.
An imaginative story that is filled with action and future technology that science fiction fans will thoroughly enjoy.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review.
what starts as a missing persons case becomes a deadly and pivotal struggle for the very survival of the information and control of New Crete; a sentient, misguided creation that lays its own traps and desires nothing less than total domination.
With more than a passing nod to an ancient myth, and an accomplished ease of writing in the sci-fi language of cyberpunk's wildest imaginings; this is a cracking tale.
His characters and their relationships are always believable and interesting. In this story, Mouse, a hacker/software genius, undergoes an apotheosis that almost seems prophetic.
I do get a little lost in the technicalities of this genre, but with Barnes that doesn't matter - the world, the characters and the story are more than robust enough to keep me a fan.
Keep them coming, Mr Barnes!
