Messiah is the final volume of the Apotheosis series.
The unstoppable alien AI has cast a nanocloud of destruction across the known universe. Oppose him, and you turn to dust. Accept him as god, you are absorbed into his consciousness there are only a few that believe his hold on sentient life
In the heart of the Vatican is a "man" from the past who may point the way. The fleets surrounding Bakunin are prepared to sacrifice everything in an effort to stop the AI. But the last hope is Nicolai Rajasthan, a Moroeau who believes the human race is already damned.
This a satisfying experience for scifi lovers. Set in the far future, the story includes, intrigue, mystery action and some of the best scifi world building in recent times. Possible? Yes, A warning that technology can threaten the world? True, but full of action and hope. It is hard to put down. This definitely a book you'll want to read. I recommend it for sci-fi lovers. ~~ Pam Allan
