Holohive

Holohive

Having escaped the clutches of the Acybernetic Initiative, David Lawney finds himself on a small island off the coast of southern England. But now zombies may be the least of his worries. All indications point towards irresistible forces massing against him and the adoptive son he has sworn to protect. Soon David comes to a stark realisation: protecting the boy – along with what remains of the human race – means going on a mission to assassinate Holohive, the artificial intelligence whose virus decimated humankind. But Holohive is no easy target. It has started a new empire, expanding its race to include lethal androids capable of tearing human beings apart. What David faces is a virtual suicide mission, but it’s one he seems destined to embark upon whether he wants to or not. The sequel to the novel Doomware.
