But when she stumbles upon a hidden message from her late Uncle, Doctor Timothy Trent, a world of secrets unfolds.

With her friends Maya and Kai, she embarks on a journey for truth. As they unravel the Architect's dark secrets, they stand on the brink of rebellion against a society built on lies. Will they survive the labyrinth of lies, or become pawns in the Architect's game?

My Review:

I truly loved the world that was created for The Architect but I can’t ever imagine living there or at least I wouldn’t want to. But who knows what the future holds for any of us. The world-building for The Architect is beyond anything I have read before. It is truly amazing.

I really enjoyed reading The Architect. The descriptions made it so easy to picture everything I was reading. I loved following along with all the characters and reading their stories. The Architect grabbed my attention with the summary. Once I had read the summary I couldn’t wait to dive in. I was not disappointed in the least. The Architect was everything and more than the summary promised it would be.

I enjoyed following Alex, Kai, and Maya as their stories unfolded. I could only imagine the fear they lived in or did they. Did they fear the day that their whole lives would be monitored by an AI known as The Architect? Or was this just life for them? Something they had been taught all their lives maybe?

Can you imagine living in a world like this where everything you do you are being watched? Can you imagine being connected with an AI in this way? What a riveting read it was indeed.

I can’t wait to see what the next book may hold for this world. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the Breaking the Code Series!

Grab a copy of the Architect today! I would recommend The Architect to all science fiction fans!
