Paradox Hunt (Torch World #3)
by Dee Garretson
Publication Date: August 6, 2019
The galaxy is on the brink of chaos.
Earth has grown repressive over the centuries, touting democratic
principles while ruling with an iron fist.
Sixteen-year-old Quinn Neen has
discovered the truth behind the façade of Earth’s stronghold on
the galaxy, and he’s determined not to become part of the elite who
allow the horrors to continue.
Centuries earlier, Earth secretly
annihilated an empire on the distant planet of Fosaan. Unbeknownst to
most, some of the ruling family survived. Ansun, a descendant of
Fosaan’s last emperor, wants to destroy Earth’s hold on the
galaxy and bring his planet back to formidable power. But Ansun
intends to rule with the same ruthlessness of past Fosaanian leaders,
something Earth will not allow. So to enhance his small military
force, Ansun’s stolen some of Earth’s most valuable tech,
powerful robots with a breakthrough version of artificial
intelligence. If he gets the chance to use it, he should be able to
render Earth’s military useless.
Quinn is firmly caught in the middle of
the conflict when he befriends Ansun’s niece Mira. Under different
circumstances, Quinn and Mira might have become a real couple, if
they’d only had time together to get to know each other. But now,
Mira’s allegiance to the Fosaanian people must come first.

They’d take a quick look and want to get on inspecting the rest of the ship. “You appear agitated,” Samson said. “Your breathing rate has increased.” “Samson, you need to shut down.” I didn’t need a bot giving me health status updates, and he couldn’t be in hologram form when they inspected the room. “I’m sorry,” he said, shaking his head. “You are not authorized to give me orders.” I felt a stab of pain in my eye. I didn’t have time to try to outsmart a hyperintelligent bot, and unfortunately, there was no off switch.
