RIGA is assigned to broker an alliance between the Empirum and the Terran Empire. Things go awry quickly when she, herself, is targeted for capture or assassination. Before the dust settles, she uncovers a plot by a third empire, to pit the Emperium against the Terrans, hoping to fill the void and rule over all three systems. This third empire is clever but somewhat led by Luddite philosophy.
This book is extremely fun to read. The plot is interesting and quite unique, in that many of the main characters are AIs. Thinking that AIs are 'robots' is a mistake here. These characters move, react and associate with humans as one of them, not as an automaton. RIGA herself is indistinguishable from a human in every outward manner. Only her mind and internal features would give her away. Many of her interactions with the human characters in the book are quite amusing as they develop.
I really enjoyed Artis Prime. The writing is exemplary. There are a couple of awkward sentences within, but it coukd just be the way I was interpreting them. The story flows quickly and smoothly without interruption. This is a good, stand-alone book, that entertains and will make you think about the future, if society continues to make computers more and more intelligent and capable of acting on their own initiative.
Read this book. You'll like it.
RIGA AI follows the exploits of RIGA, a female quasi cyborg-like lifeform who attempts to uncompromisingly navigate the fragile peace between AI’s (cybernetic lifeforms) and humans. She is joined by her partner in crime Gossie, as they navigate the universe, jump into hyperspace, and general try to avoid the baddies that seek to take her out.
All in all, I would recommend this title to anyone who is looking for a story a bit off the beaten path, and is interested in science fiction in the lines of Star Wars, and in particular is interested in and would like to explore the future of artificial intelligence. Overall, a bit rough around the edges, but does reward the patient reader with some very fine moments. 4/5
Fast paced action, story line opens chance for more books.
Fun read, enjoyed the kick butt undercover wonder woman!! (No A. I. robot), advanced woman in making. ???? Was that a hint to maybe opening emotions?? Hmmmm
Ok I am ready for the next installment,
Enjoy, Mr. ROOTE IS A MASTER IN STORY TELLING.
