Kurzbeschreibung

Salvatore Antonelli, a disgraced ex-bishop, and Benito Castillo, a young tech-priest fresh out of Seminary, are tasked by the Vatican to confront DAMON-1, a nuclear capable AI that claims to be Satan incarnate, returned to the physical world to bring about Armageddon.

The two clergy must battle to restore DAMON and purge Satan from the enslaved AI's core. The bishop is forced to play a deadly game with billions of lives in the balance, while the young priest must confront Satan's digital persona within the network.

The eternal conflict between good and evil, fought in the space between time, brings humanity and their AI creations to the dawn of a new age, and to the brink of annihilation.

"The Exorcist" meets "Skynet" meets "The Matrix" in this thought-provoking new science fiction thriller by Travis Hill.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Futuristic tale that asks deep questions and somehow combines science and faith (not Religion - Faith) into an action novel 23. August 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In the very beginning of Travis Hill’s “Diabolus” are two pages filled with time measurements, what they are called and what they mean. Included with this informative forward is the admonishment to bookmark these pages if your e-reader supports it. Word of advice: Do it. Bookmark those pages, you are going to want to refer to them later – often; they really do convey just how FAST some of the these interactions take place, even if they span numerous pages of action.

Do machines have souls? Can an Artificial Intelligence, created by man, have a soul? What if that AI, that Silicone Persona, is a free thinking, free willed, knowledge seeking entity that ponders the deeper mysteries of life and even dying; does that give it, THEM, a soul? Hard to imagine… yet Travis Hill imagines all this and more in this stunningly deep novel.

In “Diablolus” the future is just as technologically advanced as some of us hope it will be. Artificial Intelligence, AI’s, have been created and implemented worldwide. These machines, while fairly new to the scene with the oldest one having only served just shy of 50 years, have been fully integrated in the daily lives of humans. They control everything, from communications to records, travel to weapons management. Every major organization on the planet, and quite a few minor ones, have an AI in their employ; even The Vatican has joined the 22nd century with its own AI, Brother Aggelo. All of this makes life much easier and stream lined, but it sets the stage for an epic battle that proves almost as ironic as it is dangerous.

When disgraced Father Salvatore Antonelli is called back into service by the Church, restored to his former title of Bishop and sent to meet with the new Pontiff, he has no idea what God, nor man, has in store for him. Years earlier he has been on the forefront of bringing the young back into the fold of the church, albeit by shady methods and deception proposed and endorsed by the former Pope. En exorcist by trade and title, the pair set out to dupe the world using technology as their tool. Their lies were unearthed, as lies often are, sending the Holy man into disgrace and shame. Now, recalled and forgiven, he is paired with newly Frocked Father (Doctor) Benito Castillo to face off against an aged AI that has seemingly gone insane, claiming to be Satan, returned. Unfortunately, disabling this AI is not just a matter of pulling the plug, as this is DAMON, one of the most powerful AI’s on the planet, fully nuclear capable and in control of NATO’s web.

This book, is in a word: amazing. Not only is it fast paced, but it is incredibly philosophical, even theological. Hill broaches questions and theorizes situations with the aplomb of a Biblical master. It is thought provoking and fascinating.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting but complicated 30. Juni 2014
Von Peter R. Divergilio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Mostly well written peek into a possible future involving Catholicism, supercomputers, and Human interreaction - some parts seemed a bit abstruse and complicated, but I'm old, so your mileage may vary!
5.0 von 5 Sternen An Imaginative Cyber Punk Sci-Fi Novel 25. August 2014
Von L. Collins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Right from the start "Diabolus" caught my attention with its imaginative plot and it very easily kept my attention until the very end. Travis Hill has crafted a multi-layered novel that bridges religion with technology, science fiction with fantasy and emotionally charged drama with thrilling action. One of the things I was worried about when I first came across the novel was that it would be too steeped in religion to the point that it felt "preachy" instead of entertaining, but the author manages to find a delicate balance where the religious aspect of the plot is toned down to where it only enhances the story and the overall science fiction elements are kicked into high gear.

The novel is well-written with a lush and vivid storytelling style that draws readers into Salvatore Antonelli and Benito Castillo's efforts to defeat the AI entity that claims to be the reincarnation of Satan himself. It has a well-paced plot that keeps the momentum up throughout, adding dimension and layers to the story as it builds towards the confrontational climax between the ex-Bishop, priest and DAMON. The story is authentic and yet fantastical, bridging the gap between realism and science fiction fantasy in a wonderful way.

Overall, this was a very entertaining novel that was well worth the read.
