A neurodivergent, post-apocalyptic, dystopian coming-of-age story.
Three centuries after the Calming, the System is alive, but it’s not well. All that remains of the once-omnipotent AI are the book it left behind, and the itinerant professors charged with keeping its wisdom.
Now Reyan, a lonely girl who thinks too much, understands too little, and is overwhelmed by everything, must learn to harness her remarkable mind if she hopes to return the System to its former glory.
Host is the long-anticipated and beautifully conceived sequel to Chris Lodwig’s first novel, Systemic.
