Really need the next one now!
Crystal Deception is the first installment in the Crystal Series by Doug J. Cooper and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
This story follows a few different characters as they prepare for a potential battle in space against the Kardish race that have been lingering just outside of Earth for decades without making a move. Juice, or Dr. Jessica Tallette, has been tasked with creating a new generation of AI crystal that can help navigate and control Earth’s army space ships. As a result, Juice creates Criss.
Criss is locked in his own prison and must make the ultimate choice to save the human race or take off on his own.
There were a crazy amount of layers to this novel and I couldn’t wait for the next big plot point to hit to see how the main characters would react. The author did a fantastic job of world building and character development. I will absolutely be reading the next book and anything else that Doug J Cooper decides to write in the science fiction genre. This was fantastic.
