“Sentience” by Dean C. Moore is a well written and highly intelligent science fiction thriller set in the world of Artificial Intelligence and cloning. Cleverly combining medical science, psychic energy and technology, the author has come up with a truly original and fascinating concept and premise for this story and his creatures.
Digital lifeforms escape the labs and try to take over the world. Enter corporate and governmental interests, politics, suspense and some fascinating characters and you have a very solid story. Philosophical musings, reflections and character development are however just as important to the author and were what made this truly a remarkable reading experience for me. I very much enjoyed the intelligent dialogues and the character of Morbius. The ending has several epilogues that tie things up and leave things open for hopefully more to come. Excellent.
