All five novels have their own unique flavor and feeling, much in the same way that my three adult daughters are related but look and act nothing alike. All five novels are connected, but each can stand alone.

A. I. Smith: Exciting book! This is one of those "can't put it down" books! So many topics to discuss from this book I am looking forward to sharing it with friends and I hope to read more about the characters in future books.

A. I. Smith: Fun read! Unexpected major plot twist. Hard to put down. This was the first novel I have read in at least 10 years because I usually read history and technical stuff. I really enjoyed this though and it has rekindled my interest in always having a good novel nearby. Close to halfway through there’s a MAJOR plot twist that I didn’t see coming. I'm not a “verified purchaser” because this was given to me but I highly recommend it. It’s hard to put down and would make for a good movie.

A. I. Smith: Truly a fun read! The thing I loved about this book was how easy it was for me to get back into it after setting it down for weeks at a time. Being a busy mom I don't have a lot of time to sit down and read. This book was easy to follow and not overly complicated so that I could jump back into it, whenever I had the chance, and still remember what was going on and who the characters were. The author does a great job of switching back and forth between characters without it getting confusing and an even better job keeping you interested until the very end. If you're looking for a page turner look no further!

A. I. Smith: A Good Book For A Cross Country Flight I read this book in 5.5 hours because, as others have also said, I couldn't put it down! AI Smith is a book that is well written and has a well-developed plot, which I enjoyed. I have no doubt that the technology described in the book exists in reality also, but maybe doesn't produce the same results that the fictional version of that technology does. I very much enjoyed the author's descriptive writing of the places in the book. I felt like I was there with the characters. I will probably read all of Kathleen Helm's books in the next few days.

A. I. Smith: Great fun and ultimately scary book I got to meet Kathleen Helms at our local Kiwanis meeting and was fascinated to hear from her. She is bright and smart and her writing reflects it. Thoroughly enjoyable read, fast reading, good pace. The subject matter, the rise of Artificial Intelligence without a degree of control should be a bit worrying, so this is another example of a possibility.Started Loyalty (book 2) last night....

A. I. Smith: Couldn’t put it down! This book keeps you on your toes the whole time and is quite the page turner. Highly recommend!
Londo
A. I. Smith: This one really makes you think! This is one novel that really makes you THINK about how far technology can take us, and how the loss of privacy makes you so easy to find! without giving anything away, how far do you think AI would go to preserve itself? Would human life be "in the way?" This author deserves a wider readership. It is well written, no grammatical flaws, and the story flows. Enjoy! I look forward to reading more in this series.

Kindle Customer
A. I. Smith: A.I. Smith is a page turner! If you want to stay up the whole weekend reading one book that you won’t be able to put down once you begin turning the pages—start “A.I. Smith” by local author Kathleen Helms. Just don’t start it right before bedtime, because you might not end up getting any sleep.
