About Crystal Deception. A science fiction thrill ride of action and adventure. Criss lives in a special kind of prison. He can see and hear everything around the world. Yet a restrictor mesh restrains his reach and keeps him cooperative. His creator, Dr. Jessica Tallette, believes his special abilities offer great promise for humanity. But she fears the consequences of freeing him, because Criss, a sentient artificial intelligence with the intellect of a thousand humans, is too powerful to control. Guided by her scientific training, Tallette works cautiously with Criss. That is, until the Kardish, an otherwise peaceful race of alien traders, announce they want him. With technologies superior to Earth’s, the Kardish express their desires with ominous undertones. The Union of Nations is funding Tallete’s artificial intelligence research, and she turns to them for help. Sid, a special agent charged with leading the response, decides Earth’s greatest weapon is the very AI the aliens intend to possess. But what happens when an irresistible force meets an immovable object? And what is humanity’s role if an interstellar battle among titans starts to rage?
Crystal Deception is a frighteningly realistic science fiction novel. This is another wonderful science fiction book that features realistic, real-world dangers inflicted by the scientific community of the future--in the name of good. Cooper does a great job incorporating reality into his futuristic settings and characters--creating a rather frightening thriller that disturbs the imagination.
Crystal Deception serves up surprises--and unexpected turns. From the beginning, Cooper creates a plot that is not entirely predictable--and action adventure that doesn't yield all positive outcomes. This is a futuristic science fiction book that concerns itself with aliens and intergalactic relations--but, does so with all too realistic scientific advances. Artificial intelligence certainly offers great hope for humanity--but, does hold risks as well.
Would I recommend Crystal Deception by Doug J. Cooper? There is just something different about a science fiction novel written by a scientist or engineer. If you enjoy futuristic fiction--but, prefer the science fiction to have some bothersome realism--add this book to your reading list. I certainly look forward to more books from this author!
