HelenE with an E By Epicness1000 Completed

In the year 2237. . .

Humanity is dying. The Resource Crisis has become severe. Countries collapse one by one, though those that remain fight a futile war over the scraps of oil and gas that have gone unused. Doomed countries use drones to fight, though they do not last long. Those with a chance use Artificial Intelligence. But only one uses GECOs- Genetically Engineered Cybernetic Organisms.  Modelled after prehistoric life forms of the past, they are just as efficient as any of the A.I. developed in other countries. They are used in agriculture, law enforcement, war, anything.

And they only exist to be exploited by human beings.

Great opening chapter! The writing is polished and evenly paced. Taking on the perspective of a newly awakened cybernetic creature (which you pulled off expertly) adds a lot to the story, which quickly draws you in.

It's a difficult challenge to build up concepts from a clean mind-slate like this but you've pulled it off really well.
I haven't even read the first chapter and i already love it.
