Ambassador Rigel, RIGA to her friends and associates is an artificial intelligence who, for all intents and purposes, looks and acts like a petite human female. She is far from helpless, though. RIGA is an investigator and assassin. She has access to every tool, weapon and device known to the Empirum, and knows how to use them.


RIGA is assigned to broker an alliance between the Empirum and the Terran Empire, but things go quickly awry when she, herself, is targeted for assassination. 


This book is extremely fun to read. The plot is interesting and quite unique, in that many of the main characters are AIs. Thinking that AIs are 'robots' is a mistake here. These characters move, react and associate with humans as one of them, not as an automaton. RIGA herself is indistinguishable from a human in every outward manner. Only her mind and internal features would give her away. Many of her interactions with the human characters in the book are quite amusing as they develop.

This is a stand-alone book, that entertains and will make you think about the future, 'if society continues to make computers more and more intelligent and capable of acting on their own initiative what will we have, would we [be able to] distinguish between AI and human if there was no discernible outward difference?

I really liked the pattern universe series by the author and have been anticipating the next sequel so I was disappointed that this wasn't it. This is a whole new series. The universe the author has created is very complex and the story is from the viewpoint of the main character who is an artificial intelligence so it's a little hard to identify with. The novel will stretch your abilities as a sci-fi reader so it will take some mental flexibility to enjoy it. At least there is no sex, poetry or dream imaging.

Nice;; slow in revealing Rogues personalities. Like the upgrades she gets. Political twists and bass no- carp, no whining, no parole, you dead. Sure way to confirm staying inbounds. 
Fast paced action, story line opens chance for more books. 
Fun read, enjoyed the kick butt undercover wonder woman!! (No A. I. robot), advanced woman in making. ???? Was that a hint to maybe opening emotions?? Hmmmm 
Ok I am ready for the next installment, 
Enjoy, Mr. ROOTE IS A MASTER IN STORY TELLING.

A good idea beautifully realised. Clear logical and unadorned Tobias Roote uses a style perfectly suited to the subject of AI. I am assuming he takes some pleasure in putting pesky, irrational humans in their place. The imaginative application of technology takes us on a fast paced and gripping ride. Kudos.

Great book. I thought that I would have trouble identifying with the protagonist as she was an AI but she still came across as a person (as did her ship). Good world building, I like it better than the pattern universe. This story line has plenty of room to grow as do the character. Hope more a forth coming.
