Summary
"In 2070, nanotech longevity drugs have become the de-facto currency of a post-apocalyptic Earth. Glow is one such drug, addictive and all-controlling, with the devastating power of copy, edit, and paste memories from host to host. On the streets of Coriolis City, Rex battles his addiction to Glow, and the beguiling, terrifying voices it puts in his head, all while fleeing drug liches, corrupt militia, and an unstoppable assassin sent down from space. Above, an orbital empire wages war against Earth's forces seeking ultimate control of the planet. In such a massive conflict, Rex's uncanny ability to resist Glow might just make him the key to changing the world."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Welga Ramirez, executive bodyguard and ex-special forces, is about to retire early when her client is killed in front of her. It's 2095 and people don't usually die from violence. Humanity is entirely dependent on pills that not only help them stay alive, but allow them to compete with artificial intelligence in an increasingly competitive gig economy. Daily doses protect against designer diseases, flow enhances focus, zips and buffs enhance physical strength and speed, and juvers speed the healing process. All that changes when Welga's client is killed by The Machinehood, a new and mysterious terrorist group that has simultaneously attacked several major pill funders. The Machinehood operatives seem to be part human, part machine, something the world has never seen. They issue an ultimatum: stop all pill production in one week. Global panic ensues as pill production slows and many become ill. Thousands destroy their bots in fear of a strong AI takeover. But the US government believes the Machinehood is a cover for an old enemy. One that Welga is uniquely qualified to fight. Welga, determined to take down the Machinehood, is pulled back into intelligence work by the government that betrayed her. But who are the Machinehood and what do they really want? A thrilling and thought-provoking novel that asks: if we won't see machines as human, will we instead see humans as machines?"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Deep in the heart of an alien mountain range, the supercomputer I.C.C. has lain dormant, its ships alert, for eons, Now, after one hundred thousand years, the AI is awakening. Someone is roaming the convoy's halls - someone that isn't human. The planet, Noumenon - created by the megastructure known as the Web - is too young and brutal to have evolved intelligent life. Its surface is bombarded by unusual meteors, and crystal trees abruptly and violently arise from its bedrock; the solar system itself is surrounded by a frightening space-time anomaly. So where did these visitors come from? What do they want? And do the people of Earth, whose ancestors launched Convoy Seven, know they are here? I.C.C. reaches out to the descendants of its convoy crew to help decipher this primordial riddle. Noumenon was created and seeded by ancient aliens, and clearly their plans for it are unfinished. But humanity has been growing and evolving, and the desires of an ancient intelligence are no longer a priority. There are a few, though, who remember their original mission: one of discovery. Together, the AI, the new life-forms who have awakened it, and the curious humans will embark on an epic adventure billions of years in the making"--Publisher.
