A sequel will soon be available to a military sci-fi trilogy by Aussie author Joel Shepherd. The four books star Cassandra Kresnov, the latest model artificial person constructed as a better soldier in a far-future war.
Cassie is very curious and creative and smart as well as ultra-deadly. She develops a conscience. And deserts a cause she no longer believes in, a circumstance neither side of the war is willing to allow. Unfortunately for them when they try to “correct” the situation.
The series delivers more than the expected satisfying action. It quietly builds up a backdrop of a society which is super-advanced yet richly believable. Tells a personal story. And explores the deepest nature of what it is to be human.
