Tokyo Otaku Mode serialized English translations of the novel in 2014, and it describes the novel:

With the introduction of an ultra-advanced AI that surpasses human intelligence, beings that mankind is yet to fully comprehend made from materials far too advanced for human technology begin coming into being. Lacia, an hIE equipped with a black coffin-shaped device, is one of these. In boy-meets-girl fashion, 17-year-old Arato Endo has a fateful encounter with the artificial Lacia. For what purpose were these artificial beings created? Amid questions regarding the coexistence of these artificial beings and humans, a 17-year-old boy makes a decision...

Hase serialized the novel in Newtype in 2012. The artist redjuice (Guilty Crown, The Empire of Corpses, Genocidal Organ, Harmony character designs) provided the illustrations for the original novel, and WIT Studio (Attack on Titan, The Ancient Magus' Bride) and animator Satoshi Kadowaki (chief animation director for Guilty Crown and Attack on Titan) provided "animation versions" of the illustrations for the English version.
