A novice cyborg defends Chicago in the opening salvo of Earth’s AI Wars.
By day, drone rider Betta Graham herds migrants from her cubicle in dismal Chicago, via her remote-controlled robotic bunnies and dogs. Her flocks beg for a place in the sealed domes by Lake Michigan. By night, Betta frolics in virtual with her lover Valentin.
But when she’s forced to become a cyborg, allies become enemies, friends turn foes, and even her boyfriend is not the man she thought he was.
Because confusion is the tool of a dire new adversary – sentient AIs, rogue artificial intelligence developed to direct Earth’s defenses.
How can humanity prevail against AI, when sensors lie to them, diplomacy is rewritten to fuel hostilities, and weapons have minds of their own?
A cyborg like Betta is uniquely vulnerable – and potent – in the opening salvo of global cyber war.
Pick up Drone Rider because you love gritty action, laser-eyed bunny robots, and flawed characters in a cyberpunk future where lines blur between man and machine.
