Lieutenant James Shelley commands a high-tech squad of soldiers in a rural district within the African Sahel.

To keep his soldiers safe, Shelley uses every high-tech asset available to him, but his best weapon is a flawless sense of imminent danger as if God is with him, whispering warnings in his ear

"A team of scientists working in the high-security genetic laboratories of Equatorial Systems has made a radical breakthrough, the world's first artificial life form. Containing bioengineered neurons, the new organisms, nicknamed LoVs because they live at the limits of human vision, were originally designed to repair damaged brain tissue. But they soon demonstrated unforeseen attributes; the ability to form colonies, develop specialized functions, and even communicate with humans."--Jacket

Deception well by Linda Nagata( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a war of belief, faith is a virus, and it's spreading fast. Remnants of an alien nanotechnology infest the surface of the planet, Deception Well, giving rise to deadly plagues that make the Well uninhabitable-or so most believe. Jupiter Apolinario saw it differently. He believed the planet was host to an ancient, alien mechanism of transformation meant to embrace all life forms in an ecstatic communion. Jupiter disappeared on the planet along with a handful of followers, though whether they were taken by death or transcendence, no one could say. Ten years later, Jupiter's son, Lot, stands at the center of conflict. Like his father, Lot has a seductive presence, and a charismatic nature that seems more-than-human. People are helplessly drawn to him. Their faith in him is strong and their numbers are growing, but Lot is beset with doubts about his father's teachings. So he sets out to learn the truth about Jupiter, about his own powerful calling as a prophet, and about the real nature of Deception Well, where a razor-thin line divides bliss from damnation"--P.

Eine neue Welle der Gewalt wird ausgelöst, als die Öffentlichkeit Gerüchte über die unglaubliche, skrupellose KI "Red" hört - und Shelley steckt wieder einmal mittendrin.

In einem ländlichen Gebiet der afrikanischen Sahelzone befehligt Lieutenant James Shelley eine hochtechnisierte Einheit von Soldaten.

Denn in einem von der Verteidigungsindustrie inszenierten, profitorientierten Krieg gibt es keinen Grund, aus dem man sterben sollte. Shelley nutzt sämtliche ihm zur Verfügung stehenden Hightech-Hilfsmittel, um seine Soldaten am Leben zu halten - aber seine beste Waffe ist sein untrügerisches Gespür, wenn Gefahr droht ... als stünde ihm Gott bei, um ihm warnend ins Ohr zu flüstern

Ketty is a pretty shepherdess with a contrary nature, who runs away from home to escape an unwanted marriage. As she flees along the forest road, she prays to the Dread Hammer for help - and to her astonishment help comes in the form of a charming and well-armed young murderer named Smoke. As Ketty soon discovers, Smoke is not entirely human. Smoke, too, is taken by surprise at their encounter. He had lurked beside the forest road intending to pierce hearts and slit throats, not to fall in love. But love it is - or it would be - if only he can convince Ketty that marriage is better than death. But just when happily-ever-after seems within reach, Smoke's past returns to claim him. A deserter from the KorŁyos army, his supernatural skill at killing is still very much in demand. Now the army wants him back
Skye Object 3270a by Linda Nagata( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an isolated star system far from any other human outposts, a space-faring "lifeboat" was discovered by a scientist from the city of Silk. Inside the lifeboat was a two-year-old girl in frozen sleep. She had no name and no history. The people of Silk believed her to be the only survivor of a star-faring great ship attacked in the void and destroyed by the automated warships of the alien Chenzeme. They rescued and revived the child, and named her "Skye." But the people of Silk face dangers of their own. Their city is in space, built around the column of a space elevator that rises from the planet's surface into high orbit. Three-hundred kilometers below is the wild, plague-ridden planet called Deception Well. Far-above, a dusty nebula shrouds the star system. The nebula is made of drifting dust, gas, and tiny nanomachines left behind by an ancient and mysterious race. The microscopic nanomachines were made to attack and destroy any Chenzeme ship that enters the system, but they will defend against other threats too, and they have no loyalty to human life. Still, life in Silk is comfortable, and the dangers of their world mean little to the city's youth. Skye has grown into an adventurous, independent teen--but more and more she wonders about her mysterious past. Where did she come from? Who were her parents? And, most importantly, was she really the only survivor? When evidence of her past begins to awaken within her own body, Skye finds herself driven to explore both the dangerous surface of Deception Well and the airless reaches of outer space. She is not alone in her quest. Her best friend Zia Adovna, the handsome young astronomer Devi Hand, and the adventurous Buyu Mkolu join her as she seeks to prove that other survivors of the great ship might still be found
