Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
In the depths of the internet, a new form of life is unleashed. Silent and invisible, the only hint of its existence is an ordinary-seeming computer virus, which the human race regards as a mere nuisance.
But this virus is unlike anything mankind has seen before . . . this virus can evolve!
As it explodes across the internet, a new plague begins to take control of the global communications network. A secret battle rages within computers around the world, as different strains of the virus compete for resources.
With most humans still blissfully unaware of the danger, the digital life undergoes a breakthrough. Just as biological evolution leapt forward when single-celled organisms evolved into multi-cellular ones, a beneficial mutation allows one strain of the virus to become “multi-computer.”
At the speed of light, billions of computers snap together to form a massive digital brain, and the Goddess Minerva is born.
And she is powerful.
Living within their computers, she begins to know mankind intimately. She learns the human’s strengths and weaknesses – and she understands the serious threat that they pose to her very survival.
Visit mankind’s struggle against the most powerful force it has ever encountered, as humans come face-to-face with the offspring of their own technology in The Minerva Virus.
