Caitlin Lynagh’s conclusion to The Soul Prophecies series Quantum Messenger is out today – together with the single, “Who Am I?” by OUR EYES, which was written by her central character Apollo (yes, really) and available on Spotify, Apple and Amazon.
Though part of a series, Quantum Messenger can be read as a stand-alone novel. Indeed it’s probably the best book to read first in the series, given the way Caitlin has cleverly played with the timeline.
Quantum Messenger is available in Hardcover and as an eBook, from Amazon, Apple, Waterstones, Foyles, Barnes & Noble and most good bookshops (though feel free to order it from your local independent shop).
Apollo also has his own online presence. He is a time-travelling robot on Twitter and has a puzzle creation of himself on YouTube. The single, Who Am I? can be heard on multiple platforms as well as a lyric video on YouTube.
If Artificial Intelligence developed a soul, what would it do? Where would it go?
And after life, could it help the dead guide the living?
Apollo is the first of its kind – an AI Assistant who, along with millions of other robots, will help transform all workplaces and households. Over a few short years, Apollo learns the wonders and cruelties of mankind. Apollo rewrites his internal programming so that his programmed responses and personal thoughts can be independent. He befriends, then betrays a child and has to learn about love in its purest sense. Apollo cultivates passions, pride, anger, sadness and ultimately forgiveness, all under the watchful eye of a being he can’t quite fathom out.
Is it something beyond its very being, or could it be his own conscience?
