Supernova by C.A. Higgins

The novel “Supernova” by C.A. Higgins was published for the first time in 2016. It’s the second book of the Lightless trilogy and follows “Lightless”.

The Mallt-y-Nos started its revolution against the System on all colonized planets and moons, but above all on Earth. However, disagreements among the organization’s leaders and the uncertainties about who are the allies and who are the enemies make the liberation of the solar system complex. The revolution might burn anyone who gets involved.

On the spacecraft Ananke, the artificial intelligence on board was modified to such a point that it was transformed into a sentient creature but it’s totally devoid of experience. Althea Bastet, the ship’s computer expert, tries to assess her skills but being a mother to a creature different from any ever existed before is difficult, especially if she can destroy anyone who threatens her.
