Helene (Lost Tales Of Solace Book 1) is the first spin off the Lost Solace series, which I really enjoyed.

The Lost Tales series is suppose to focus on a particular character or providing some further insight and development of the Lost Solace books.

I loved this novella. It's basically a conversation between a new powerful AI that's just learning and its teacher named Helene. Can't say much more as it will spoil it, but safe to say this answers some questions I had when I read Lost Solace, so it was well worth it.

There are some really funny bits and a lot to think about with respect to AI and how difficult it would be for a computer to effectively represent a human. Just understanding humour is a huge task that the AI has a lot of trouble understanding with all its subtleties. There are also some really tense moments.

Highly recommended.
