“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme originally hosted on Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. This is a great way to share upcoming releases you’re excited about!
RUBICON by J.S. Dewes
Release Date: March 28th, 2023
In 2021, J.S. Dewes released not one, but TWO of my favorite books: THE LAST WATCH and THE EXILED FLEET. So it’s little surprise that I am absolutely salivating over her next release RUBICON, a book set in a whole new world (and possibly part of a whole new series?). Dewes once again returns to military sci-fi, this time with intelligent machines that are bent on humanity’s destruction. I cannot WAIT to crack open my ARC of this!
Sergeant Adrienne Valero wants to die. She can’t.
After enduring a traumatic resurrection for the ninety-sixth time, Valero is reassigned to a special forces unit and outfitted with a cutting-edge virtual intelligence aid. They could turn the tide in the war against intelligent machines dedicated to the assimilation, or destruction, of humanity.
When her VI suddenly achieves sentience, Valero is drawn into the machinations of an enigmatic major who’s hell-bent on ending the war—by any means necessary.
