The next book discussion is for the sci-fi novel Messiah by S. Andrew Swann, book three of the Apotheosis series. I haven't started this series, but I have read some of Swann's earlier novels and really enjoyed them. Now that this series is finished, I can put it on my TBR list. I'll let everyone know what I think when I get around to them. In the meantime, who's had a chance to read them and what do you think so far?
Cover Copy: In this final volume of the Apotheosis trilogy, the seemingly unstoppable alien AI Adam has cast his nano-cloud of destruction across the known universe. All who stand against him are turned to dust. All who accept him as their god are absorbed into his consciousness. And as solar system after solar system falls under his sway, there are only a few who hold any hope of breaking Adam's stranglehold on all sentient life.
In the heart of the Vatican waits a "man" from the past who might point the way to a future beyond Adam. . . .
The fleets surrounding the world of Bakunin will sacrifice what they must in a last-ditch effort to defeat the undefeatable. . . .
And on Bakunin itself--amid a planetwide campaign of conquest--humanity's last hope may lie with Nickolai Rajasthan, a Moreau who has believed, all his life, that the human race that created his kind is already damned beyond redemption. . . .
