A.J. Grayson is truly believable as the 20-something-year-old computer geek PhD whose science and computer knowledge has developed an artificial intelligence system which may predict events as intriging as espionage and military operations. Recruited to use her system "Poppet" for something other than predicting consumer trends and product acceptance for the Grayson conglomerate, she is tasked by a US government espionage agency to help protect the newly enstalled king of Jafir, Damon Toca. The new king is anything but happy about the mantle that has been layed on his reluctant shoulders, but he tries to cope with his new and totally unexpected status with the help of the facinating A.J. Grayson. Mysteries and intrigue surround and abounds making for one of the most interesting and entertaining novels I've read this year . . . and the intimate interludes will have your toes curling!!
I truly look forward to Ms. Montgomery's next novel . . . hopefully in mainstream fiction with the length of the story equal to "The Emperor of Ocean Park" or "War and Peace" in the bedroom!! Five hardy cheers, Ms. Montgomery!!
