**Winner of the 2017 Prix Julia-Verlanger**

The stand-alone sequel to the award-winning The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Lovelace was once merely a ship's artificial intelligence. When she wakes up in an new body, following a total system shut-down and reboot, she has to start over in a synthetic body, in a world where her kind are illegal. She's never felt so alone.

But she's not alone, not really. Pepper, one of the engineers who risked life and limb to reinstall Lovelace, is determined to help her adjust to her new world. Because Pepper knows a thing or two about starting over.

Together, Pepper and Lovey will discover that, huge as the galaxy may be, it's anything but empty.

Absolutely loved it

Wasn't sure if I would, as I was chomping at the bit for more Wayfarer adventures. Needn't have worried as this is an wonderful piece of writing.

tersono ,

Not the sequel I was expecting...

... and all the better for it. A wonderful exploration of character and the nature of self wrapped in an entertaining adventure. Even better than the first in the series.
