IndieReader Approved - 5 STARS - TOP BOOK PICK - AFTER MIND

5-STARS – TOP BOOK PICK – “AFTER MIND is a stunning, reality-bending sci-fi adventure. An Artificial Intelligence must discover his identity in order to protect the world from an insidious threat. Wolf is an excellent sci-fi writer, masterfully balancing the complex layers of setting and character at work in the novel – interiority and exteriority, past and present, vision and reality. He does not bother to hold the reader’s hand: the story starts at a sprint and rarely pauses to offer explanation. There are sufficient clues dropped along the way for the reader to pick the trail up quickly, and the world is presented with enough confidence that the audience never feels as though they are not in able hands. Wolf is particularly skilled at describing technology, finding the inherent vitality and bringing it to the forefront of the image… Despite the fact that so much of this landscape is alien, the story is surprisingly relatable and relevant to modern life. The plot is complex, original, and impossible to predict; everything about the story feels untrodden and immediate.”

5-STARS – “A book where the characters struggle and are utterly, utterly human. The story does something very clever. This is a story of how a family deals with the loss and potential rebirth of a lost member… as told through his eyes. … It may be one of the oldest questions in Science Fiction, what is a human? What does it mean to be human? How much can we remove and still be called human? Like Theseus’ ship, how much can you replace, even with identical parts, and still have the same ship? AFTER MIND does not attempt to answer these questions, but rather, leaves the reader to wonder and explore. We are both fascinated and repelled by the idea, much like Cessini and the oceans he dreams of.”
-San Francisco Book Review

“A rewarding tesseract of a novel that doesn’t release its secrets easily.”
-Kirkus Reviews

Named as an AIA Book of the Month | IR Best of Summer

AFTER MIND defies the experts… Artificial Intelligence is not the end of the world.

Cessini Madden lives with an extremely rare medical condition… then his physical life ends before he reaches age thirteen.

After an Artificial Intelligence breakthrough, Cessini is reborn as a young AI child named Packet. Scared and living alone in a technology center, Packet recognizes nothing from his past, save for one thing: he is deathly allergic to water.

When a mysterious doctor gives him a chance to recover his memories, Packet must face the tormented boy he once was. He must be the courageous lost son his family remembers and loves. But now as his world collapses around him, one thing remains … even a child’s best memories are made to be changed.

Robot or AI, no one can ever be the same human twice.

From the near-future suburbs to the lush Australian forests, from the depths of the oceans to the promise of space, Packet’s urgent struggle for existence grabs hold in everyday victories and extraordinary dreams. After Mind tells a story about the underlying nature of humanity, the impact of undying devotion, and the incredible next generation of us.

Robot or A.I., no one can ever be the same human twice.
