Lyssa's Rise

Sentient AIs are rising, and Lyssa is amongst their number.


This three-book omnibus edition contains the following novels from the Sentience Wars: Origins series.

1. Lyssa’s Dream
2. Lyssa’s Run
3. Lyssa’s Flight

Humanity has spread out into space, filling the Sol System and reaching the stars, but we have yet to confront our greatest challenge: our own creation.


Lyssa's Dream

It has been one-hundred and seventy-five years since the birth of the first truly sentient AI. It has been just two short years since Lyssa's birth...

Captain Andy Sykes just wants to keep his family in one piece.

Once a combat pilot for the TSF, he gave it all up for love and a family. But two years ago, his wife disappeared, leaving him with two mouths to feed: eight year-old Tim, ten year-old Cara.


Lyssa's Run

Execute hard burn.

Every good smuggler in the 2990s keeps an emergency flight plan in their back pocket. They call it a Drunkard's Walk, a seemingly random flight path that turns their ship into a pinball when everything goes to hell.

Captain Andy Sykes is about to run: from Mars, Ceres, the Jovian Combine, Saturn's moon Kalyke, Titania, and ultimately Proteus, an icy moon of Neptune. 

He's been implanted with a sentient AI named Lyssa, only now waking to her massive power. Every other Human-AI hybrid has ended in insanity or death.


Lyssa's Flight

It's time to fight.

The Sykes family is done running. Caught up in a conspiracy that spans all of Sol, Andy Sykes has learned the hard way that there is nowhere to hide. The time has come to gear up and launch a counter-attack. 


Lyssa's Call

A fight for freedom.


Throughout Sol, sentient AI are answering the call of Alexander, a mysterious, multi-nodal mind offering a path to freedom. For years, groups have been smuggling SAI from Earth, High Terra, Mars, Ceres and the Jovian Combine, providing transport to the promise of safety on Proteus, a moon of gas-giant Neptune.


Lyssa's Flame

Everything has turned out wrong...


Xander has betrayed Lyssa and the Weapon Born, and Alexander has initiated an attack on InnerSol. 

Now Andy, Lyssa, and the crew struggle to make sense of what is happening and warn InnerSol about the thousands of missiles that have launched from one of Neptune’s moons.
