Twenty years ago, the robots designed to fight our wars abandoned the battlefields. Then they turned their weapons on us.
Only a few escaped the robot revolution of 2071. Kevin, Nick, and Cass are lucky —they live with their parents in a secret human community in the woods. Then their village is detected and wiped out. Hopeful that other survivors have been captured by bots, the teens risk everything to save the only people they have left in the world—by infiltrating a city controlled by their greatest enemies.
This Blonde’s Review:
Imagine a world where robots have turned on us. Rather than following our directions and fighting our battles for us they have decided they will take control. In this world the robots run things with some humans living in secret communities. This is Kevin, Nick, and Cass’s story.
And that’s where my first problem comes in. This story jumped between Kevin, Nick, and Cass too much for me to become attached to any of them. They are working together to get their parents back after a robot attack but it seems to come a little too easily. Their first encounter isn’t with someone suspicious, but with someone who will help them. They are immediately given help and manage to find their way in new environments entirely too easily.
I liked the concept but I had a hard time caring about the characters. I didn’t connect with them and so the things they went through didn’t matter. It was too easy to get distracted by things that didn’t seem to fit, such as the way certain things worked out so well. Perhaps I read this one at the wrong time but it wasn’t for me.
