Very enjoyable and fast moving space opera, set in a universe hundreds of years after a war between humans and AIs. The spaceship Jinxed Thirteenth picks up a distress signal and looks for survivors on what they find is an ancient vessel. But they face danger when boarding the ship and need all their fighting skills to survive. Likeable characters.

This book is filled with many species including robots, a huge universe and lots of history. At first this put me off until the story took over. The book became a very interesting story with a crew to worry about. All said and done, I am looking forward to reading book #2.

Fun, quick read. Not much to distinguish it from other space operas. Perhaps, more banter than I like in a sci-fi book. The writing is competent. The books asks the question, are computers alive?

In some indeterminate future an exploration ship of misfits finds a rogue AI holding hostages in stasis.

I liked the Lexicon at the end of the book. It helps to establish the identity of the characters and the setting.

Morwyn Soltaine is the captain of a starship bent on exploration. As captain he is attempting to forge a crew that is supportive of each other in spite of their diverse and conflicting backgrounds.

Chord is a Machina or AI that is self aware an

The timeline in this is really screwy and there are too many pov shifts. I just can't tackle this one right now.
