Coalition Award Winner
I am in love with this book. Although the concept is something we have seen before, a world where robots do everything, and are now defying their directive not to harm humans, this one is a fresh perspective.

In a world so desperate for energy, the need so large, there is only one way to collect it, ships seek out lightning storms to harpoon and collect the vast electrical out put.
Vale is a human determined to have a job and seeks a position on board the only ship run by humans. When her success at spotting storms brings in a record amount of energy, she thinks she’s set on her path.
The next voyage turns sinister when an AI ship, wrecks the one she’s on, and by luck, she ends up on it. Here she meets Sky a mute boy who reveals a theory so terrifying it seems beyond comprehension.
When he gives her the proof she requests, the race is on to save humanity.
The author’s pacing through out is excellent and the action scenes are written with flair. Vale is a strong female lead and I’m looking forward to reading even more of this adventure.
I recommend this as a great starting point for those who have never read a Science Fiction book. The world is built in easily comprehended scenes, and the technical complexity is NOT beyond grasp. I will be finishing this book as quickly as the author provides new chapters.
