Description

Ken MacLeod continues the Corporation Wars trilogy in this action-packed science fiction adventure told against a backdrop of interstellar drone warfare, virtual reality, and an A.I. revolution.

And the ultimate pay-off is DH-17, an Earth-like planet hundreds of light years from human habitation.

Ruthless corporations vie over the prize remotely, and war is in full swing. But soldiers recruited to fight in the extremities of deep space come with their own problems: from A.I. minds in full rebellion, to Carlos 'the Terrorist' and his team of dead mercenaries, reincarnated from a bloodier period in earth's history for one purpose only - to kill.

But as old rivalries emerge and new ones form, Carlos must decide whether he's willing for fight for the company or die for himself.

Praise For The Corporation Wars: Insurgence (Second Law Trilogy #2)

"[The Corporation Wars] is a kind of action-packed Dirty Dozen or Suicide Squad scenario . . . . MacLeod does many astonishing things here. He
creates viable, believable multiplex interactions among so many different sets
of characters, human and robot. His detailing of the non-human way of thinking
and speaking employed by the freebots is fun and exemplary . . . . He shows a
keen hand with action sequences. And there is a generous amount of humor to
leaven the otherwise dire and deadly consequences of the multi-front war."
