Criss lives in a special kind of prison. He can see and hear everything around the world. Yet a 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?

THE KARDISH LINGER IN EARTH ORBIT. THEIR REASON FOR making our planet their anchor point for the last twenty years aren’t known, but since their arrival, they’ve shared just one resource: crystal flake.
Dr. Jessica “Juice” Tallette, a bright young scientist, uses the alien flake to drive giant leaps in artificial intelligence, resulting in Criss, the world’s most powerful AI crystal. When Criss Awakens, he learns of a Kardish plot to abduct him. Sentient but vulnerable, he alerts Juice to the conspiracy, compelling her to enlist a small team of government specialist to protect him. But the question must be asked: could Criss’s very existence be putting humanity in Jeopardy? The stakes skyrocket as Juice and the team struggle to foil the Kardish plot and, in the process, discover the surprising truth of Criss’s destiny.
Sooooo. Why 4.5 🌟s? why not 5 out of 5 🌟s? I’ll tell you later. if You read my past book reviews I’m like crazy in giving 5 stars review but. I have my opinion on this cause it’s my review. Anyway here’s the review.
NOTE: MR. DOUG J. COOPER THE AUTHOR OF THIS BOOK WAS SUPER NICE TO PROVIDE ME A PAPERBACK REVIEW COPY OF HIS BOOK. IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
By the beginning of the story you’ll be introduced to Dr. Jessica “Juice” Tallette. A talented scientist who invents Smart Crystals. made with Crystal Flakes and produced in Crystal Fabrications or Crystal Fab.the Crystals were made by Generations and the one they have at the present was the Third Gen. Crystals but they are Developing the Fourth Gen. Crystal which is much more efficient than a hefty amount of Third Gen. Crystals. Juice was assisted by Sheldon and Mick. When the story continues The Crystal awakens and the super smart Crystal can communicate through human language. Juice was impressed with what the Fourth Gen. crystal can do. but she was well… confused at the sudden information that The Crystal told her. it told her that the Kardish(Aliens) are plotting on abducting it. and the part that gave Juice a shock was when the Crystal told her that her friend Sheldon was with the Kardish. what concerned Juice was, if the Crystal was lying or not. But she considered it and went to the Captain of the Alliance ship and warn the captain about the plot. This is where the new character shows up and it is Captain Cheryl. when Juice told her the new she took it seriously and told her that they should report it to the Chair of senate defense committee, Sen. Matt Wallace, The senator believed it and thanked them for going straight to them. now they are brainstorming on how they can protect the Crystal. Since Juice invented the Crystal she tried to talk to it and found out that the “IT” was a “HE”. and the crystal told Juice his name which was Criss. when Cheryl was looking for more information about the Kardish plot she was told to meet with a DSA spy. when she saw the Spy she Froze….(Why don’t you find out why. ) When they had the talk they were convinced that Sheldon was part of the Kardish’s plan and they had to find out for themselves. Then they made a plan that could possibly save Criss which was to create a new crystal but it had a defect therefore it was called Defecto. and they put Defecto in the Alliance instead of Criss. and after the Kardish got Defecto they Destroyed Crystal Fab and killed all the Scientists. (And I shall stop Here cause if I continue I’ll be spoiling the Highlights of this book which would be bad….. really bad.) the only thing I can say is that the chapters left after those Chapters are the best parts in the book and I loved it.
I was going to talk about my favorite character but it would spoil the crud out of it soooooooooooooooo I’m not telling!!!
Time to talk about the book. so why 4.5 🌟s? why not make it 5 🌟s if it has a .5 in it just round it off. (My review ehem). The book was good you get acquainted with the characters and it tells you the Development of the Crystal, Criss. It was all great but then. Somewhere in the middle part of the book had a part where I was reading like “*sigh* why is this part so long….. gimme action, romance, anything!!!!!” yeah.. something like that biut it was all covered by the last 12 chapters. and it was Great. and let me tell you there is a Dash of freaking romance here and it made me flip. I swear to the heavens that this had the dash of romance every book has to have. well on my opinion that is. and it was between Sid and Cheryl… ooohhhhh that romance part was like exciting if she’ll accept him or not will they end up together or not. will they DIE or not…… but they are not my ship I ship Jack and Cheryl and when one of them dies I swear It shattered my heart to billion of pieces. like “Why does this always happen to characters I ship!!!!!!!” (and Yes Mr. Cooper that part killed me in Sooooooooooooooo many levels I had to stop reading last night because I was still processing what happened to my ship. I shipped them Soooooooo much. WHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!) -end of tiny rant- let’s set that aside. As I said besides the part in the middle of the book that made me feel that way was the only issue I had. I’m looking for the those types of stories that doesn’t have any slow pace in it. even if it was in the middle part cause let me tell you the book/ story is fast paced.but if I was Reviewing for a book that emotionally scarred me for killing my favorite character in the story. I’d give this book a 1000/ 5 🌟s.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THE BOOK?
