WHAT SECRETS RESIDE IN ENOYA'S ARTIFICIAL MIND?
From the acclaimed author of AKIN, Robin Murarka's Rone Isa traverses that border between science and literary fiction, weaving a futuristic dystopian world seeped in technology and wonder.
"Leaves behind a properly haunting set of afterimages ... gracefully and poetically rendered." - Kirkus Reviews
"Robin Murarka has delivered a tour-de-force in the provocative, daring Rone Isa." - San Francisco Book Review
Garbled noise, quickly becoming coherent, strange messages, and soon, she is revealed, calling herself 'Enoya'. The engineer, Dargaud, locked in his small, decrepit loft, marvels over his creation, unaware that she is observing him as much as he is observing her.
Set in the futuristic metropolis of Agnus Sistra IV, Rone Isa follows the newly birthed artificial intelligence, 'Enoya', as she learns about the world of man, trying to comprehend abstraction and violence, much as a child would. Dargaud, the engineer that created her, also explores the newfound equity in her abilities, and basks in the carnality afforded to him through her achievements.
Reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Rone Isa delves into the depths of artificial intelligence and its relationship with humans.
What secrets reside in her artificial mind? And will Dargaud's excess destroy him?
