In its last days the thinking machine Known As Archos R 14 Was Trying as Archos R 14 was trying know humanity It mastered the art of capturing the human mind When it died it left behind the tools I found stories trapped in patterns of neurons Using scavenged hardware I took three accounts straight from three minds and I lined them up from beginning to end and back again Three times to tell it Three times to understand They say history is written by the victors but this ight here is told by its victims My name is Arayt Shah and this is the story of how I Won The True War the True War

years because we are benevolent beings You will most assuredly catch us with our asses flapping in the wind totally unprepared for whatever mayhem you wish to inflict upon us but we will in the end be

but buried in our lizard brain he is sitting around waiting to be unleashedOk so I ve probably made sure I m not going to be one of the triumphal survivors at the end of the next apocalypse I m hoping that my keyboard doesn t send 10000 volts through me before I can finish thiseview I do like finishing what I start Needless to say I would not be doing so much chest pounding if Daniel H Wilson had not figured out how to beat the machines We win Archos R 14 is destroyed and now the humans are eturning to the shattered tattered emains of our grand cities The only problem is that we hate to lose data Most of us have numerous ways of backing up important data As it turns out Archos R 14 was not any different The entity spread pieces of itself all over the world and one of those copies is Arayt Shah I decimated the human Catholics, Anglicans, and Puritans: Seventeenth-Century Essays raceegrettably But I did so with one purpose to forge a hybrid fighting force capable of surviving the True War a war that has been initiated and is being fought by superintelligent machines Instead of simply discarding your species as the others would I have transformed your kind into a powerful allyMathilda Perez is one of those that have been transformed into something something beyond human something that proves very dangerous to Arayt Shah s plans for domination Back home at the Underground our friend Dawn used to call it my ocular prosthesis It s made of dead black lightweight metal The thing wraps over where my eyes used to be before a Rob surgical unit dug them out and

Ill be the bridge to the I M TAKE I m about to take shrapnel spray to the face The knowledge doesn t stop me screaming This acne scarred kid a hell of a war fighter named Lark Iron Cloud used to say that if you don t die screaming in this war then you e fuckin doing it wrong At least I m fucking doing it Baby Elephant Gets Lost right There are all kinds of variables that have been let loose on the war Creatures that are weaponized in creative and terrifying ways Until they make a move youeally don t know what is coming at you The monster is made of 100 Themes de Conversation en Francais razored sheaths of ashen metal coiled and layered and glistening like a millipede The sheaths flare into a hood on its head A cluster of small holes are embedded where a face would be I feel a tingling on my skin as they sweep over me On its hind legs the machine stands seven feet tall swaying writhing in place The war is over but the new phase is only beginning Humanity understandably is suspicious of anything not completely organic Modified humans that were so important in victory are now being hunted by the very people they saved Tribal units are formed and anyone not a part of your clan is someone who probably needs eliminated Arayt Shah is there to take advantage of the temporaryespite the world is weary of war and willing to ignore the signs of a new esurgence A jumble of old Robots new Robots modified humans humans and artificial intelligence all form uncertain alliances to fight on one side or the other Winning has never felt so much like losing Daniel H WilsonDaniel H Wilson has a PHD in Robotics from a fancy school called Carnegie Mellon University Not bad for an Okie from Muskogee well not eally he is from Tulsa His brain conceives the most terrifying and amazing things out of plastic metal and computer chips What makes him even impressive is that he can convey that knowledge into a pair of books that kept me iveted to the pages He understands pacing and suspense Science meets literature and they have conceived twins called Robopocalypse and Robogenesis Wilson does a great job summarizing the first book at the beginning of this book so Robogenesis can technically stand alone but I would highly ecommend starting with the first book Why just Street-Fighting Years: An Autobiography of the Sixties ride oneoller coaster when you can The Back House Ghosts ride two Steven Spielberg has optioned theights to the first book but for some Haven: A Graphic Novel reason the filming keeps being delayed This book hit me by surprise I thought Robopocalypse was a stand alone book and worked uite well at that The seuel is just OK It felt shoehorned in to give us a seuel The gist of the book is that there s another AI threatening both humanity and the freeborn Theobots are still evolving while new creatures are appearing throughout the world The book is divided into thirds and I didn t care for the first part focusing on Lark Iron Cloud and Hank Cotton much at all It gets better once Mathilda and Cormac Wallace enter the picture I didn t get the stuff with the Deep Minds at all How did servers get to the bottom of the ocean At the end a t I wanted to love this because I loved Robopocalypse but I just didn t I found it hard to Physical Basis of the Direction of Time, The. the Frontiers Collection. read because it was just so depressing and gruesome It was well written and followed the same format as the first one but it just didn t have the same energy and excitement as the previous novel mostly I struggled to pick it back up because everything was so dreary and hopeless In its last days the thinking machine known as Archos R 14 was trying to know humanity It mastered the art of capturing a human mind When it died it left behind the tools I found stories trapped in patterns of neurons Using scavenged hardware I took three accounts straight from three minds and I lined them up from beginning to end and back again Three

WarDaniel H Wilson stormed onto the scene in 2011 with Roboapocalypse a tale of the war between humanity and The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction robots In this followup entitled Robogenesis Simon and Schuster RRP 2999 we learn that the war is not over and that Archos 14 the supremely intelligent A I who started the war has in fact survived Lines of Archos code exist in caches around the world and they are starting to wake up We also discover that an earlier version of Archos calling itself Arayt Shah exists This sets the scene for a titanic conflict not only betweenobots and humans but also now new My Honorable Brother: A Thriller robots freebornobots and the parasitic dead Robogenesis takes us on an epic journey of conflict and intense action Wilson has again set a cracking pace and this novel unfurls at a apid ate as events spiral out of control for all of the pla.

point in to the different AI s and their functions The battle seuences and how the obots would behave were incredibly vivid fiery and entertaining and I adored the pervasive sense of hopelessness that oozed from the human protagonists in this book Their narrative and dialgoue as they attempt to adapt to the growing threats around them and from within was brilliantly fascinating Their backs are literally against the wall and things are not looking bright for the future Overall Robogenesis is a great Einatmen, Ausatmen read and Wilson has definitely stepped up his game for this instalment Robogenesis does feel like a middle book at times and Wilson obviously has his eyes set on the third book with some of the events set up in this story However this did not detract from my overall enjoyment and I wouldecommend this book for any fan of science fiction or apocalyptic fiction A cracking ead 4 out of 5 starssmashdragonsblogspotcomauA eview copy was provided I loved this book The writing is great and the story kept me interested all the way throughLove from page oneCouldn t stop eadingMy favorite of the newly upcoming book seriesso awesomeAnother great story in the Robopocalypse s seriesIntriguing characters great action and book seriesso awesomeAnother great story in the Robopocalypse s seriesIntriguing characters great action and ending that will blow your mindA must ead for all scifiRockman XMegaman Xcybernetic evoltrobot s uprisingTerminator s movie sagasmilitary scifiBorgsMachine s uprisingGURPS Reign of Steelapocalypsepost apocalypsedistopia etc fans out thereSAD that the movie project of its predecessor was cancelled by that % steven spielberg I HATE YOU YEAH YOU HEARD ME anywaythere is background on some of the old characters of the first novel and most characters are very developed If you e after something deep meaningful or emotional i strongly Gideon's Ride recommend this seueli also I would like to thanks mister Daniel Wilson for also providing me with an ARC copy because i am too a big fan of Robopocalypse and i also felt honored to have such a privilege and also myeview is the least I can do to show my gratitude to himand as i predicted beforethe machines evolved to the point of also developing a bioconvertorin Robogenesis most new evolved machines now get their energy or fuel by digesting organic materials just like we biological life form doeswe can see such example on some deer looking machines that eat plants and leaves and another scary example of one that use nano swarm like biter insects to trap and slowly kill both animals and humans so that the BIG slug like machine that control that swarm go to the death bodies of its victims and star slowly eating their flesh while only leaving their bonesok what is a bio convertorthis process or item called bioconvertor is a power plants that function much like ahuman s system They generate energy using food and atmosphericoxygen and have a mouth into which water and foodanything biological must be placed A Dahmer Detective: The Interrogation and Investigation That Shocked The World robot with a jaw mayeat like a human chewing food otherwise food must be liuefiedor be baby food etc and poured inthere is also The vampire s bioconvertor version or option witcheuires 1 gallon of blood per day An average human body has 125 gallons blood GURPS Robots by David L Pulveranother 20th Century Photography: Museum Ludwig Cologne reason of why i will also give 5 star to this fantastic book is because of the beautiful scene of the birth of Cormac Bright Boy Wallace s first son with Nine Oh Two helping with the labor and birthing of that childalso love it how the LOVE had evolved and flourished between Cormac and Cherrah and how theyspecially Cormacexpressed of the importance of their baby and that with him humanity will keep livingin others wordsimpregnation is survival of the fitness he he healso just like GURPS Reign of Steel Archos 14 mention of several other AI entities one of them is its Arayt Shah witch was one of Archos late siblings and predecessorsalso the Stumpers Pluggers and Scorpion parasite like machines from the first noveleturn on this new seuel and as scary and dangerous as they were on the first storyanyway i eally enjoy it this seuel.
