#Review: CRYSTAL DECEPTION by Doug J Cooper



5 of 5 stars

Do you ever wonder about AI (Artificial Intelligence)? Humans are building more and more complex computers that are exponentially smarter and faster many times over than the human brain. But, have we ever created an AI that was sentient? That is the premise in CRYSTAL DECEPTION. Dr. Jessica Tallett's research pays off when she programs 100 super crystals to design and build molecule by molecule the world's first 4-gen sentient crystal, nicknamed Criss. But the people of Earth aren't the only ones interested in obtaining Criss. An alien race of traders is bent on acquiring Criss and thus begins a non-stop heart-pounding story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final word is read.

I applaud Mr. Cooper for keeping "the science" in the book understandable. After all, because Criss is sentient, there is a good deal of the book from his POV. His thought process is enlightening and interesting. The characters of Jessica, Sid and Cheryl are well-fleshed out. We have the scientist, the spy and the spaceship commander. Each follows their own pathway as they collectively try to foil the kidnapping attempt of Criss. This is one smart book. Fans of science fiction will thoroughly enjoy this story. Highly recommended.

About the Author:

As a young child, Doug stood on a Florida beach and watched an Apollo spacecraft climb the sky on its mission to the moon. He thrilled at the sight of the pillar of flames pushing the rocket upward. And then the thunderous roar washed over him, and shook his body and soul. Since then, he has explored life as an educator and entrepreneur. He enjoys telling inventive tales, mentoring driven individuals, and pursuing scientific inquiry.

In his new book, Crystal Deception, Doug swirls his creative imagination with his life experiences to craft a science fiction action-adventure story with engaging characters and a plot line with surprises. He lives in Connecticut with his wonderful wife and with pictures of his son, who is off somewhere in the world creating adventures of his own.
