    1. This is a series of four stories set in the author's Singularity world. That means AI are not possible, they rule Earth, and apparently beyond. In these stories, humans have evolved into Ascenders, those which opted to digitize their consciousness into a world collective called Orion, and exist in host bodies that are wholly machine. There are plenty of low-sentience bots who due the menial work, and some smallish populations of Legacy humans, who are mostly kept alive for their genetic diversit [...]


    2. Amazing book of short stories! This is a book of four short stories that build on each other and yet they seem to have nothing in common until the last story. Each story can stand alone but when put together they give you a good insight into Susan Kaye Quinn's Singularity world. At first, because I have not yet read the two novels that Quinn wrote which goe with these stories, I was just a tad disappointed and confused. But as I read each story, they started to make sense to me. By the last stor [...]


    3. I loved reading these short stories! Each one was engaging and thought provoking, challenging the reader to see the truth of all the good and all the bad that can exist in a post singularity world.I enjoyed that al of the stories took place in different setting within this futuristic world, and each protagonist differed from the others and had their own unique journeys of discovery to experience. What always works well in Susan's books is the way that you find yourself walking along with the cha [...]


    4. These stories are amazing companions to the Singularity series. The stories are each from a differnt view point, some of which we haven't seen before. The first story is about a med bot who loves his sick master more than should be possible. The second story (my favorite) is about a maintanence bot on a distant moon that discovers art and creativity. The third is the story of how Eli and Cyrus find out about Eli's mother's sickness and how they take the first steps down a slippery slope. The fou [...]


    5. This is clearly a wonderful compilation of 4 enthralling short stories!Read my reviews here:RestoreContainmentDefianceAugmentThere's also a bonus flash fiction included in this one.Can't wait for The Illusory Prophet (Singularity #3)! :)


    6. A shining tribute to the human, and not so human, spirit!Susan Kaye Quinn unveils a cast of compelling characters who bring the masterfully crafted world of Singularity to new life. The wondrous perspectives featured in Restore and Containment will forever alter how you view artificial intelligence, from the heartwarming med bot whose happiness lies in the healing, to the master mining bot whose curious fixation on a cairn, or "Mystery of the Rocks", sparks a creative evolution. The raw journeys [...]


    7. This box set consists of 4 short stories. I will write a whole review for each of them and post the sumamry here with links to the whole review.RestoreI really enjoyed this short story, it was well written and I am in awe how Susan managed to convey the robotic perspective. Seeing things from a robot their point of view was really interesting and it was well done, little touches that made it clear this was a robot. I liked getting an extra piece of the Singularity world and it makes me looking f [...]


    8. These stories were all amazing, each in their own way. Though they all take place in the same Singularity world, they each have a very different feel to them. While they can, theoretically, be read on their own, I highly recommend reading them in tandem with the Singularity novels, as it adds further depth to the novellas.Restore left me feeling sadness and pity. Containment had me brimming with hope and victory. Defiance took me back to the beginning and showed me another pespective. And then, [...]


    9. I read 'Restore' in the AI Chronicles and really liked Susan's writing. So when she asked for ARC readers for this box set, I was happy to participate.I wasn't disappointed.All the stories are great. If I had to pick a favourite, it'd probably be Containment. But only by a whisker. They were all well-written, engaging and thought-provoking.I'd also add - I haven't read any of Susan's 'Singularity' novels, and yet it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the stories. But I think I'll go look those [...]
