In the future, Talis (once human, now AI) rules the world, and peace is maintained by holding world leaders' children hostage in Preceptures until their eighteenth birthdays. These Children of Peace, including roommates Greta and Xie, are educated to rule, and they never consider challenging the system until Elian, a new hostage, arrives. Greta feels as if she has been awakened to possibilitiesâpolitical, personal, and sexualâby both Elian and Xie, but when Elian's grandmother blasts into their Precepture to use Greta for political ends, everything changes. Peace now hinges on whether or not Greta will agree to become AI herself. Bow has crafted an authentic sci-fi narrative around the AI premise, utilizing an imaginative world and well-developed characters. Through Greta's conflicts, the author explores what it means to be human and gives readers a glimpse inside the mind of artificial intelligence. Fans of Star Trek and 2001: A Space Odyssey will appreciate this novel, which paves the way for a sequel. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
