In tomorrow’s world where the edges blur between addictive virtual reality and real life, would you hurt your daughter if it was the only way to set her free? When gaming junkie Silver doesn’t make it home on the eve of her sixteenth birthday, Kate and Keke go out to find her. It’s a treacherous journey navigating a city in the midst of a flash civil war.
Shrouded in electrosmog and panic, it’s been taken over by vigilante bot hunters as a violent AI uprising puts everyone Kate loves in danger, especially Mally and his anthrobot girlfriend.
Suicide Agent Zack’s in trouble. After a charade of a trial he’s sentenced to hard labour at SkyRest, the most controversial penal labour colony in the country. He’s shocked by what he finds there, deep underground, but the more he resists it, the more they brainbleach him into submission. If he doesn’t find his way, he’ll never be able to tell Kate what he needs to tell her. Which is a problem, because it’s the whole reason he exists.
With the Doomsday Prophecy looming large, Kate discovers there are forces at play she’d never guess at, and much more at stake than just her or her children’s lives. What she’ll need to do to keep everyone safe will stretch her beyond every hard limit. Will Kate play the game?
Cyberpunk meets the robopocalypse on the edge of litRPG in this dark dystopian thriller. Jack in and get ready for a headsplosion with this third book in the riveting series When Tomorrow Calls. Ready? Your next addiction starts now.

This third book blew my mind completely! We see old and new characters, we see the kids grow up, we see new personalities and so much more. The romance aspect is analyzed from multiple perspectives, as we have more than one type of romance here. I have diversity, I have a great plot, a great narration, what’s not to like?
I don’t know what impressed me more. The amount of tech words would make this book difficult to read (if length doesn’t scare you), but it all seems so natural. It’s like we all use all those devices, we all are used to robots doing our things, why would that surprise anyone? The characters are so well created and so refreshing. You would think that you’re already used to Kate and Keke and Zach but they will all surprise you in a good way. And they will face new challenges. Yes, they hav to protect the ones they love and basically the world but that’s old news.
The plot has so much more to offer. We have gamers, robots trying to take over, love interest and heartbreak. We have more that we could ever want in a book such as “What Have We Done”. Now, after listening to three full length books I see the titles befitting each action happening and I am more in awe with the author for what she managed to accomplish.
I apologize for keeping it vague but I wouldn’t know what to cover exactly form what happens here because there is so much and so many things that will blow your mind. And the ending is far beyond your imagination. I hope we will read more of this world in a future book because I am not yet tired!
The narration was great and with a lot of emphasis on emotions. I appreciated the special attention Roshina Ratnam has given to the AIs and her dedication towards each character’s personality. She felt the book and the story, not only read it. And I thank her for that!
So yes, great book, great series, such an amazing author and such a great narrator! Congratulations to both for a job well done.
