Reentry by Peter Cawdron Book Review and Giveaway



SYNOPSIS

After almost dying on Mars, astronaut Liz Anderson returns to Earth, but not to a hero’s welcome. America is in turmoil. The war is over, but the insurgency has just begun. So while life on Mars may have been deadly, at least up there she knew who the enemy was. Along with her, Liz has brought the remnants of the artificial intelligence that waged war on two planets. Buried somewhere deep within the cold electronic circuits lies the last vestiges of her dead partner Jianyu. Liz is torn, unsure whether he’s somehow still alive in electronic form or just a ploy by an adversary that will go to any length to win. Heartbroken and treated with suspicion, she finds herself caught up in the guerrilla war being waged on Earth, wondering if the AI threat is truly gone, or if it has only just begun.


Praise for REENTRY

"It's good to consider the AI possibilities ahead. Peter Cawdron's REENTRY is a marvelous read but also an intriguing scenario for what might go on within the superintelligences." ―Vernor Vinge, Hugo Award-winning author of A Fire Upon the Deep and A Deepness in the Sky

MY BOOK REVIEW

"Reentry" is a sequel to Retrograde, a novel about living on Mars when it became isolated when a nuclear war broke out on Earth. You will need to read book one because book two picks up right where the first book left off and it does not give a short catch up. 

The book follows an astronaut, Liz Anderson, who had to leave Mars and return back to Earth to discuss the AI war to Congress on what went wrong. They are dealing with the fallout of the AI takeover on Mars.  She brought the hard drives containing remnants of artificial intelligence containing traces of her dead partner, Jianyu.  She is hoping Jianyu isn't really dead. Liz knows who the enemy is unlike on Earth.  Lucifer has plans for Liz. While here she finds herself caught in the middle of a guerrilla war. How is she going to escape the deadly aftermath of the war? 

Peter Cawdron put a great deal of thought and detail into this book. There are many conflicts and action in the book, more towards the beginning and middle of the book causing the end of the book to be on the slower side.  This book is defiantly a fantasy action and political novel. There is also some humor in the book as well. If you like sci-fi action pack then you will like this book. 

"Received this book from Jean Book Nerd for an honest book review."
