9781481442749: The Swan Riders (Prisoners of Peace)

Treacherous twists await Greta as the stakes get even higher in this stunning follow-up to the “masterful” (School Library Journal, starred review) novel, The Scorpion Rules.

Greta Stuart has become AI. New transmitters have silvered her fingerprints. New receptors have transformed her vision. And the whole of her memory has become one book in a vast library of instant knowledge. Greta is ready to rule the world.

But the new technology is also killing her.

Greta is only sixteen years old, but her new enhancements are burning through her mortal body at an alarming rate. Of course the leader of the AIs, an ancient and compelling artificial intelligence named Talis, has a plan. Greta can simply do what he’s done when the time comes, and take over the body of one of the Swan Riders, the utterly loyal humans who serve the AIs as part army, part cult.

First though, Greta will have to find a way to stay sane inside her new self. Talis’s plan for that involves a road trip. Escorted by Swan Riders, Greta and Talis set out on a horseback journey across the strange and not-quite-deserted landscape of Saskatchewan. But there are other people interested in Greta, people who want to change the world...and the Swan Riders might not be as loyal as they appear...

Review:

*"Slyly humorous, starkly thought-provoking, passionate, and compassionate—and impeccably written to boot: not to be missed." (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review, on The Scorpion Rules)

*"Bow continually yanks the rug out from under readers, defying expectations as she crafts a masterly story with a diverse cast, shocking twists, and gut-punching emotional moments." (Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The Scorpion Rules)

"Bow has crafted a true sci-fi narrative around the AI premise, utilizing an imaginative world and well-developed characters. Through Greta’s conflicts, the author explores what it means to be human." (Booklist, on The Scorpion Rules)

" This is a smart, compelling read that explores the complicated nature of love, family, peace, war, and technology; fans of Johnson’s Summer Prince and Collins’s Hunger Games who are searching for an empowering and intelligent read-alike need look no further." (The Horn Book Magazine, on The Scorpion Rules)

"This is fearfully superlative storytelling- electrical tension crackles in every elegant word. The finest fiction I've read this year." (Elizabeth Wein, author of Code Name Verity , on The Scorpion Rules)

“Bow's amoral artificial intelligence overlord is one of my favorite characters in a while.” (Maggie Stiefvater, author of The Raven Boys, on The Scorpion Rules)

"Elegant world-building, white-knuckle plot, and wonderful characters make The Scorpion Rules an extraordinary tale. I couldn't put it down." (V.E. Schwab, author of A Darker Shade of Magic, on The Scorpion Rules)

"Bow's vision of our apocalypse is stark, beautiful and terrifying. This is my favourite book." (EK Johnston, author of The Story of Owen, on The Scorpion Rules)

"I don't know which is more delicious, the storytelling or the villain." (Tone Almhjell, author of The Twistrose Key, on The Scorpion Rules)

“THE SCORPION RULES is a bloody, breath-taking, beautiful book... As a fellow craftsperson I'm leftin awe, and as a reader I'm left feeling transformed.” (Zoe Marriott, author of The Name of the Blade series, on The Scorpion Rules)
