We have a blog tour for Rosie Weir’s debut sci-fi romance, Adamantine! Check out the excerpt and grab your today!
Author: Rosie Weir
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance
Deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a brilliant scientist and his daughter retreat from a catastrophic global plague. Worried for Molly’s future, James crafts the ultimate gift for his lonely little girl: A sentient AI charged with the task of protecting her and keeping her company in the event he is no longer able to do so. His creation, Will, is bestowed with an expansive intellect, superhuman strength, and a fierce protective streak. However, as year go by, Will’s feelings start to change from duty and service to something more.
At eighteen, Molly knows little of the world beyond a collection of grainy VHS classics. Life with Will and James is idyllic. But Will’s mission to protect involves keeping dangerous secrets, including some that could destroy the trust between them forever. Will struggles with the rigid self-discipline of his programming, versus turbulent, irrational feelings that grow stronger each day. True love can’t exist without honesty and risk; the two things Will has been programmed to control at all costs. But trouble is brewing outside their sheltered utopia, and ignorance might be a luxury neither of them can afford any longer.
From the primitive heights of the Appalachian Mountains to the revolutionary scientific breakthrough hidden within, Adamantine, a story of love, sacrifice, and sentience is scheduled to be released in June 2020.
My first impression
I got the revised for Adamantine just two days ago and as the release had been rescheduled to make the book even better, at the time I am writing these lines, I have not finished reading the book.
What I will give you today is my first impression.
I thought I had this book figured out and where the plot would take us but as I am more than 30% of the book, there is a catch and an interesting plot twist!
Will is handsome and if he has the body and intelligence of a grown man, he’ll have to experience and feel the world like a toddler and grow into his emotions. I really like the idea of an AI able to write his own code and determining who he wants to be.
Will’s creator James gave him free will and that reminds me a lot of God’s decision to grant free will to humans!
Molly is rather young and naive in the beginning but that fits with her persona of having been raised in the woods, far away from any human except her father and her only companions an AI, a dog and some roosters. She has been sheltered all her life and writing her any other way like a sophisticated girl for example wouldn’t have rang true!
She still made me laugh when she discovered some “special” book in a bunker and it was really well done as a scene!
You can guess that you have the birth of a love story, very insightful questions about feelings, soul and what makes us able to love plus so far an interesting twist that I guess will launch the story into a totally unexpected direction!
Complete review in a few days guys!
