Deep in the Appalachian Mountains, a brilliant scientist and his daughter retreat from a catastrophic global plague. Worried for Molly’s future, James crafts the ultimate gift for his lonely little girl: A sentient AI charged with the task of protecting her and keeping her company in the event he is no longer able to do so. His creation, Will, is bestowed with an expansive intellect, superhuman strength, and a fierce protective streak. However, as year go by, Will’s feelings start to change from duty and service to something more.
At eighteen, Molly knows little of the world beyond a collection of grainy VHS classics. Life with Will and James is idyllic. But Will’s mission to protect involves keeping dangerous secrets, including some that could destroy the trust between them forever. Will struggles with the rigid self-discipline of his programming, versus turbulent, irrational feelings that grow stronger each day. True love can’t exist without honesty and risk; the two things Will has been programmed to control at all costs. But trouble is brewing outside their sheltered utopia, and ignorance might be a luxury neither of them can afford any longer.
From the primitive heights of the Appalachian Mountains to the revolutionary scientific breakthrough hidden within, Adamantine, a story of love, sacrifice, and sentience is scheduled to be released in June 2020.
“Hold it,” Will whispered as he stood behind Molly. “Your body should always be perpendicular to the target. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart.”
Molly nodded as she held the bow pointing the arrow toward the ground. Slowly lifting the bow toward the target, she pulled back, but struggled with the draw weight.
“Keep your knuckles horizontal.” He placed his fingers over hers pulling on the bow. They stood so close their bodies touched, and the sensations caused her to become flustered. When he removed his hand, she released the bow and hit the whitetail deer in one of its hind legs. Startled, the deer struggled as it tried to get away. Will took the bow from her, drew an arrow, and put the deer out of its misery.
“Shit! I told you I can’t do it!”
“You’ll get used to the weight,” he dismissed. He turned his head to look at her lowering his bow. “It’s okay,” he said lifting her chin when she hung her head. “Not every shot is meant to be perfect.”
Molly puffed and looked away. “Says the guy who’s literally never missed a shot. It’s your fault I missed.”
“How did I do that?” he asked with a smirk.
“You were standing too close to me. I could practically smell the metal,” chided Molly.
Will laughed but stopped when he noticed she was truly upset. “Do you want me to keep a certain distance from you?”
“Yes!” ordered Molly, not knowing why she was picking a fight with him. “One hundred feet!”
Will nodded as he mused. “Yes, Molly.”
