Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Sarafina was content to be an accountant, insulated from the public as she kept the numbers behaving and played chess with her fellows. But when the First Daris Bank is bought out, her indenture is sold to a cruise ship and Sarafina is thrust into a job she was never meant for. Now she's dealing with a motley crew, drunkard captain, flirtatious first officer, fire-sale equipment, and worst of all . . . Passengers.

Queen of Roses is a full-length science fiction novel, suitable for mid-teens and up.

5.0 su 5 stelle AI Mystery Mayhem 21 aprile 2017
Di ScottB - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

A great Novel. I enjoyed the comedy mystery told from the point of an AI that is just a little out of her depth. Although I primarily read science fiction I also enjoyed the authors fantasy romance series starting with Herb-Witch (Lord Alchemist Duology Book 1) I would love to see a sequel.
5.0 su 5 stelle A good Sci-Fi mystery from a different perspective. 28 aprile 2017

Queen of Roses is a light mystery written from the viewpoint of a new Ship AI (Artificial Intelligence), who isn't prepared for her current job.

Overall, I really liked this book, and would recommend it to anyone who is a Sci-Fi or mystery fan. I definitely hope Elizabeth McCoy writes about Sarafina again. The characters were well defined, with consistent actions and reactions. The world was vibrant, and different enough from other Sci-Fi settings to keep me interested, as well as being a good backdrop for the characters. There was humor, and the writing overall was lighthearted, even while exploring some darker themes.

I liked this book, and eagerly await a sequel, if there is to be one.

5.0 su 5 stelle And a good one. The puzzle is as wonderful as any ... 7 agosto 2014
Di A. Waite - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Ah, a science fiction mystery! And a good one. The puzzle is as wonderful as any solved by the butler at a Black Widower supper, and the people a good bit more entertaining.. (Just imagine Serafina justifying her existence, ha!)

Serafina's viewpoint provides a great perspective on the problem. Lots of information that would normally not be available, along with plenty missing that would otherwise be part of a novel with a human narrator. There are things she doesn't understand as important, being an AI, that a sharp reader might notice and add to their own catalog of clues. In the end, I guessed right on most of the mystery, but I was only close on some, and missed one aspect completely. A delightful read. I would love to find out if Loren or Serafina get into any more trouble in the future.

4.0 su 5 stelle Sometimes even a Ghost in the Machine can have a poltergeist... 30 aprile 2012
Di Khinasi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The first AI's that I remember being exposed to were the Asimov Robots. R. Daneel and R. Giskard. After that, I read Anne McCaffrey's The Ship Who Sang. It seemed to me that while Daneel and Giskard were truly artificial and intelligent, Helva was the more alien even though she was human. Perhaps it was the economic differences. Daneel had no debt, but no chance of freedom, really. Helva

McCoy's Serafina blends the best of the Asimov and McCaffrey elements into one character. AI and limited by rules bound in her programming. Struggling for freedom and independence. And doing the best that she can in a nearly intolerable situation.

A delightful story that I will read again and again. If you'd like a chance to meet an AI that's understandable and that you can empathize with, give Queen of Roses a try. I sincerely doubt you'll regret it!

If you read The Ship Who Sang by Anne Mccaffrey you will enjoy this, if you haven't try to find it and read the Brain and Brawn series. Now let's talk about this book. Sarafina is a AI or Artificial Intelligence brain that has just been bought to run a cruise ship. Which she has never done before. With a lot of common since, help from other AI and some biological humans she pulls it all together and saves the day. Not going to tell you how that's the fun part of the read. I just hope Ms McCoy will write more books about Sarafina and the cruise ship Queen of Roses. I will buy.
