Summary

It has been 175 years since the birth of the first truly sentient AI. It has been just two short years since Lyssa's birth....
Captain Andy Sykes just wants to keep his family in one piece.
Once a combat pilot for the TSF, he gave it all up for love and a family. But two years ago, his wife disappeared, leaving him with two mouths to feed: eight-year-old Tim and 10-year-old Cara.
Since then, he's managed to scrape a living hauling cargo between the Jovian Combine and InnerSol. It's not glamorous, his ship's falling apart, and it's boring as hell, but it keeps them in fuel and calories.
When a cargo run to Cruithne Station meets with more than one catastrophe, Andy finds himself accepting an offer a less desperate man would refuse: delivering an illegal AI named Lyssa.
The AI is the property of Heartbridge, a powerful, interplanetary corporation, and they want their latest weapon back. With a private army, gangs, and pirates all vying for the precious cargo Andy carries, it's going to take everything Andy has to keep his ship flying and his kids safe, and to get Lyssa to her destination.
Even if he succeeds, Lyssa's very existence may spark a war like no other humanity has ever seen.

Excellent beginning to a promising series.

First of all, I only finish about 1/3 of the books I purchase, so I'm not so easy to please. I not only finished this book, but I burned through it because I cared about the characters and wanted to know what happened. It is always a good sign when I still want to listen to my book after my commute is over.
It is not a perfect book. It does tend to do flashbacks at the moments where you'd rather stay in the present because something is going on. That was annoying at times.
However, I really did like the main character, which is a problem with many novels nowadays. Everybody wants to make the next GoT where everybody is a jerk, and anybody who is actually a good person dies a horrible death. Lyssa's Dream is not that. In addition, every character in the story seems three dimensional,
The children were realistically portrayed, and there is plenty of action. The realism was quite good, with just enough explanation of the technical detail without getting bogged down in geek stuff. The writing was good; The dialog seemed natural and unforced, the pacing was good, and the plot interesting.
In summation, I highly recommend Lyssa's Dream for science fiction fans and even non-science fiction fans, and I look forward to the next book in the series.
