Review by Author Roy Murry
In the last hundred years or so, the world has gone from a one-prop airplane to fly into space; machinery has taken over work people did; and one-day social functions may be taken over by AI, Artificial Intelligence or mostly known as Robots. These events happened because of imagination.
Mr. Blade's Cobalt has that type of images embedded within his fast moving Si-Fi novel, First in a Trinity Series. Pushing present day politics to a plausible extreme, with its greed and globalist theme of World Order, he takes the USA into an open society run by three Presidents.
His main character, Petra, champion of the non-state of affairs, is kept alive to fight the evil of the 2080s. Cobalt, an amazing formula, is what keeps her functioning at an unbelievable capacity that her opponents in battle are incapacitated and destroyed.
The adventures, strange confrontations, and side-kick antics with a mind-reading computer that helps Petra conquer situations are amusing and deadly.
The supporting characters are well developed, aiding her to meet goals.
The plot is fast-paced, dynamic, and full of caveats that the intelligent reader will understand and think about for days, as I have, since writing this review. Cobalt is full of surprises any reader will enjoy, even if you are like me who rarely buys this genre.
A great find.
I was so thrilled at the humor he has in this story. Cursing is minimal and only a few sexual references but it never deters from this amazing story! I am loving how there is a part 2. If only we had a Petra to help our country. What can I say? Petra rocks! Now going to buy part 2. Well done CGBlade! You're an amazing author & have a lifelong fan!
The dialogue is well-written and enjoyable. The language is descriptive and sets a colorful table for the reader to enjoy. The author has hidden "Easter Eggs" throughout the book for true sci-fi fans.
There's plenty of adventure and excitement as the reader is introduced to the future world of mind control, organ and limb regeneration, and moral conflict over how the world is run by those in power. Lt. Petra Pace is a likable character, even if I'm not 100% clear "what" she is...android, robot, AI unit, quasi-humanoid? One side note: I really enjoyed the intrigue in the first chapter, but have no idea what it has to do with the rest of the story.
I would recommend this book and look forward to the next book in the trilogy.
Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Cobalt sucked me in and I could not put it down. I feel like I know the characters; like the were friends I met at a restaurant or bar. Every character was well developed and the plot. I won't say much but the plot has so many unexpected twists and turns you just have to know what is next. I can't wait to read the next 2 books in the series.
One thing I found of great interest is when the book was written and how already some of the elements in the book are true. The author did his research and many of the circumstances/items/etc can and will actually end up being reality. Which in my honest opinion scares the heck out of me!
The book is well written and a fairly easy read. If your a fan of sci-fi or even if you aren't so yourself a favor and pickup this book.
