    1. Having grown up with some of the best of the sci-fi genre, I am a huge fan. As such, I get a little nervous about futuristic worlds and universes. I shouldn't have worried.Artificial Absolutes is much more than spaceships and robots. While there are plenty of both, this story is not all laser guns and space battles. It is a timeless exploration of the complexity of family dynamics, the conflicts between faith and non-belief, and what truly defines a human being. What is the soul and where does c [...]

    3. “Jane Did It Her Way. Artificial Absolutes, a Sci-Fi Tale You Won’t Forget!”Take one spunky yet irresistible heroine, a dangerous galaxy, killer robots, deceptive androids, and virtual worlds that would make Isaac Asimov, William Gibson and Philip K. Dick nod with approval and you have “Artificial Absolutes,” the debut novel of Mary Fan, a young author on her way up. The heroine here is Jane Colt, the daughter of a wealthy businessman and (VIP) very important politician mother. She’s [...]


    4. First I have to say that I love me some Sci-FY books. I love anything about the future and what it holds for humans in general. Plus I love the world build up that authors give us when telling us about another life that will come and take over the world. Artificial Absolutes had me thinking about a lot of things as I was reading it because it is a story that is about consciousness and computers. Intelligence at it's finest. Jane is a recent grad from college and she is excited to be starting in [...]


    5. Artificial Absolutes is like Star Wars meets I, Robot with a splash of The Fugitive, it is one helluva ride.The story follows siblings, Jane and Devin Colt as they try to discover the truth, not only about the world around them, but their own lies they have been telling themselves. Devin discovers a powerful secret about his girlfriend when he proposes, that sets of a chain of events that neither could predict.The characters were all wonderfully developed, especially those of Devin and Adam. The [...]


    6. ARTIFICIAL ABSOLUTES by Mary Fan was one of my most expected releases of the year, and now that I’ve finished reading it, I want to say it exceeded all of my expectations! Artificial Absolutes is a terrific sci-fi book featuring Devin and Jane Colt. From the beginning, I was impressed by the depth of the characters’ characterization. The flashbacks that the author provided in the first chapters let me connect with Devin and Jane on a much deeper level than I usually do with characters in oth [...]


    7. This is a sci-fi novel about a young man named Devin and his sister, Jane. Siblings of the wealthy Colt family, they begin the novel with something strange happening to their significant others: Devin’s girlfriend reacted strangely to his marriage proposal, “freezing” in place. Jane’s boyfriend has disappeared, with various people covering up his absence. As the siblings investigate further, it seems that their significant others have been (or are being) replaced with artificial intellig [...]


    8. Artificial Absolutes is skillfully crafted and artfully written, with convincing characters and plenty of action. I like when science fiction makes sense and this was completely believable. I especially enjoyed the philosophical undertones that were just there without being distracting. It's been quite a while since I've written a review, not because I'm not reading (I read daily) but because I only rate the books I love (I hate writing bad reviews). I am happy to add this to my five star collec [...]


    9. Jane Colt is a 20-something office drone in a mega corporation, bored and discontented. What she really wants is a musical career but as her father happens to be the powerful head of the corporation, she tries to be what dear old dad wants. It seems that her entire life and that of her brother, Devin, has been about trying to live up to the expectations of controlling parents. Devin seems to be succeeding, having risen in the corporation and becoming engaged to beautiful Sarah DeHaven. Both of t [...]


    10. 3.5 stars. *I’d like to thank the author for providing me a copy of this book, in exchange for my honest review.* The more I read, my liking for sci-fi ends up growing. If it just so happens to have great female characters, all the better. This book had both an interesting science-fiction plot, as well as interesting main characters, one of whom just happened to be female. This book followed the adventures of brother and sister, Devin and Jane. I liked both of them, for various reasons. Jane [...]


    11. **We received a copy of this book through the Juniper Grove Book Library in exchange for an honest review.**There were some cool aspects to this unique world setting. There's spacecrafts, neat gadgets and creepy security systems.We start out with siblings who grow up in a somewhat dysfunctional family. Both of are them are a bit spoiled and act out in immature ways, but at the same time, it can be entertaining at times.I liked how the author created the "flashbacks" in the story. She'd have a ne [...]


    12. Review of Artificial Absolutes by Mary Fan4 starsAt the heart of this science-fiction novel is the theme of consciousness. What does consciousness entail? Are only humans conscious? Set in the future on a far-flung solar system, wealthy siblings Jane and Devin Colt must confront these questions, while simultaneously on a race to preserve their lives, and to acquire the right and capability to live those lives as they choose to live. Much of the novel revolves around “Artificial Intelligence. [...]


    13. Just finished Artificial Absolutes and I can say it was one heck of a ride. Jane Colt is going through a quarter life crisis working as a corporate zombie at her father's company, but what she really wants to do is be a composer and lead a life of adventure or at least more exciting than sitting in a cubicle all day. She gets her wish when she sees her boyfriend being kidnapped and her brother is framed for a violent crime.I have to say in the beginning the book was a bit slow, but hang tough, b [...]


    14. I liked this science fiction story that focused on reality and not-so reality. The title really says it all, and kind of made sense after reading.Absolute-This is the books God-like character, what they pray to in times of need. This represents the morality in the story and the choices that the characters have to make. Artificial- Well this plays the opposite in the story and deals with the falseness that is portrayed.I loved the main character of Jane, she was determined at times to prove she d [...]


    15. Artificial Absolutes is the first book in the Jane Colt series. Although the story starts out very slow and Jane (the main character) seems very immature for a recent college grad, it quickly picks up speed and turns into a real page turner. Although this is a futuristic space opera, there are no aliens, but there are lots of robots, computer hackers, and artificial intelligence. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series!I received an ebook copy of this book from Netgalley for a [...]


    16. A cracking tale of fights and escapes and conspiracies, set in a wonderfully and intricately evoked future world. The story rattles along at a fine pace, twisting and turning its way to and fro across the galaxy, encountering mercenaries, shoot-on-sight robots, light-speed travel, hackers and a sinister corporation. A fun ride which takes a little time to get going but, once it does, there’s no getting off until the very end.


    17. Exciting series launch with a satisfying enough conclusion that it can be read as a standalone, but also leaves you wanting more. Well written sci-fi adventure combining space opera and cyberpunk, like Firefly meets Blade Runner. Combines fast-paced sci-fi action with deeper concepts surrounding artificial intelligence and what it means to be human.


    18. Artificial Absolutes: A Jane Colt Novel is a science fiction novel written by Mary Fan and published February of 2013. Artificial Absolutes isn't the first novel published by Ms. Fan, if you enjoy this review you can also check out her other books Synthetic Illusions, The Firedragon (Flynn Nightsider), and her newest book Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil (available April 7th 2015).First before I get to the review, I'd like to thank Ms. Fan for allowing me the opportunity to review her book [...]


    19. Reviewed for the Masquerade Crew. Artificial Absolutes attempts no small feat by fusing a cyberpunk thriller and a space opera adventure. Mary Fan largely succeeds with this ambitious task, weaving together a compelling thriller with interesting characters that is a good foundation for a series of novels to come. Artificial Absolutes follows two principal characters, Devin and Jane Colt. They work corporate jobs in the family business, a powerful outfit called Quasar on a sophisticated and deve [...]


    20. Cyberpunk slams into science fiction here as these siblings lives spin out of control and they go on the search and run for their lives. Awesome! I really enjoyed where this story went with the science fiction. It's a soft scifi with internet, high tech security in buildings, space ship travel, different worlds and stations, and artificial intelligence. All with action!I love that this is a brother/sister team. ****FULL REVIEW****Devin proposes to his love, Sarah. Her reaction of freezing sends [...]


    21. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Devin Colt seems to have it all; he is working his way up in the family business, Quasar Bank Corporation, and met the girl of his dreams, Sarah DeHaven, less than a year ago. However, underneath the veneer of accomplishment and ambition lies a rebellious nature, a criminal past, and connections with seedy citizens.On the other hand Devin's sister, Jane Colt, is miserable; her dreams to be a famous composer were crushed, and she fo [...]


    22. Big brother, little sister, spaceships and (spoiler--delete). I loved this story--it features true love, family conflict, loyalty, determination, and did I mention (spoiler--delete)? You won't have read anything quite like it before, and I'm happy to see that Mary Fan has written a couple more stories featuring her sparky, spunky, spaceship-flying Jane Colt.


    23. The author sent me a copy of her book onto my kindle for an honest review.I recieved this book around mid-September and I planned to read it maybe two or three weeks after… that didn’t go to plan and I started it late November time; nether-the-less I started it and I planned to finish it.Ahh! I really-really-really enjoyed reading this book; there were so many emotions and so many page-turning happenings that made this book so enjoyable and fresh in the deep, dark refuge of the genre we call [...]


    24. I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.In a world where advanced technology has made paperwork near extinct, Jane Colt has made an enemy of machines.

He is about to ask her to marry him even though they have been together for only 6 months. He is nervous and freaking out naturally. But he gets a red flag when he actually proposes to her.

    26. Artificial Absolutes Review 5 StarsArtificial Absolutes is an exciting sci-fi space adventure. Set in a high tech future and on fictional planets in outer space. The story centers around brother and sister Devin and Jane Colt. Devin is trying to forget his past and make his father proud by working at his father’s company. Jane gave up on her dream of composing music and works at a job she hates and spends time hanging out with her friend Adam, a religious student. The story begins with Devin s [...]


    27. Artificial Absolutes is a roller coaster ride. There are slow paced moments interspersed with action, action and more action, so that the words seem to fly off the page and hit you in the face. The characters are well developed: some of them thrill you, others annoy you, still others make you think ‘why are they there?’ much like real life.The plot revolves around Artificial Intelligence, that holy grail some tech geeks think will set them free. Many people have postulated what a truly think [...]

    30. Devin is one of the most interesting characters that I have read in recent memory. He appears to be living the good life as the son of rich and well-connected parents, plus he is about to marry the most famous singer in the galaxy. However, from the beginning there are hints he has a darker past. At first it sounds like he got into the standard teenage rebellion but then it went way beyond anything he could handle. You will be reading to the end to find out just what really happened with him the [...]
