I wasn't so impulsive when I was alive. Death has changed me, I guess.

This isn't a dream. It's not the afterlife, either. This is something new.

I don't remember how I died. I only know that I did. My name is Jennika Monroe, and I need to find a way out of here. 

A college student reaches out from beyond the dead to solve her own murder. A struggle to ide

This is a fun read, which is to be expected from Zen DiPietro. I’ve yet to read a story from her that I haven’t liked. Billed as a technothriller, I think that Hello Protocol for Dead Girls will also appeal to fans of LitRPGs. With a Ghost in the Machine vibe, we see technology through the view of a disembodied programmer. Reminiscent of Tron, Jennika interacts with other programs, and tries to not only let people know that she’s trapped in the server, but to solve her own murder. That particula ...more

Dedicated to AI's everywhere

This is one of the best AI stories that I've ever read. She writes some of the best characters that I've had the pleasure to read. Her characters really hold your attention as usual and they are a wild cast. From network engineer to undergraduates, it's quite a world.

The MC is funny and sad. The conversations made me wonder how I would react if I found myself in her situation. Her origin and friendships would make this a really good series, I think. Here's hoping tha

A change of style....

I've read most, if not all, of Zen's work to date. This book is a change of style, and at first I wasn't sure about it - it felt like it was harder reading than some of Zen's other works. But then I realise that it wasn't the reading that was hard, it was my own expectations. This book harks back to The Golden Age of hard Sci-Fi, while keeping Zen's characteristic people-oriented writing. And that was a combination that I found hard to read until I suddenly realised why - an

This is a science-fiction thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat! What would you do if you died and your memories were uploaded to a computer? Meet Jennika Monroe, a dead girl trapped inside a computer. She doesn't know how she died. The last she remembers is studying for her college exam. Then she discovers a couple of other girls like herself inside the system. How can she get people on the outside to notice them and what will she do when she discovers the truth concerning her de ...more

I REALLY enjoyed this book. It was thought provoking, well plotted, witty, entertaining, and contains great dialogue. Jennika is fascinating!
I received a pre-published eARC for review consideration.

Very enjoyable read from an author I found by accident. An intriguing techno-digi-psycho-thriller? It has, as its premise, a woman who finds herself dead, her mind stored in a computer and yet unintentionally conscious with more than a few questions.

It's a smart book, one that actually deals with some of the larger questions that technology-based writing should deal with but often doesn't in exchange for a cheap plot, and I respect that. I also enjoy that it's language, while conversational and

All bow down to our teen AI overload. A possibly disturbing, possibly awesome premise. This could almost be like a super hero origin type story. I enjoyed the read, and wish it was a bit longer. I would think a sequel would be well worth waiting for.

Original Story

This is a novel concept. The story is like every other five star science fiction book because it made me think in entirely new ways.
