This week's Teaser Tuesday comes from The Deftly Paradox by M. D. White. I've had a few issues with this book so far, mainly due to bad POV changes, but it's an interesting book overall.
'They were exuberant in their pride, overjoyed by their progress. There on the stage, Senator Leary stood alone, lost in a crowd that considered him nothing less than messianic'
Humanity has been ruled by a machine for five hundred years.
Today it ordered their annihilation.
At the close of a devastating war, humanity’s interplanetary senate acquiesced themselves to be governed by their first and greatest product of artificial intelligence. Unbound from feelings and incorruptible by power, their new thinking machine, the OSIRIS ruled the galaxy through centuries of peace and untold prosperity.
Five hundred years later, the OSIRIS has done the unthinkable: order the annihilation of one of the most populous planets in the empire. With the fleet on approach and ready to do the bidding of their callous master, the task falls to the OSIRIS’s technicians to find the source of the command, warn the wayward planet of their impending doom, and stop the fleet before they unquestioningly quench the lives of millions.
But is every step towards the truth just another move in the OSIRIS’s greater scheme
