Publisher's Summary

The line between man and machine has been crossed....
And there is no turning back.
A serial killer stalks the city of the future....
Hunting the scientists who build the robots....
And it's up to a cop and an AI to unravel a terrible conspiracy.
The world is still reeling from the devastation of the Omega Virus and struggling to rebuild. A growing android workforce has given rise to the Human Defense League and anti-AI sentiment is at an all-time high.
Adam, the first of the new X-3000 models, arrives into this hostile world. Field-tested on the Luna colonies, now assigned to Earth, Adam is paired with homicide detective Jane Malveaux, who has little patience for synthetics.
Before long both Malveaux and Adam must cast aside their differences and join forces to solve a case that will test both man and machine.

Great story and narration.

What did you like most about Silicon Dawn?

The whole story didn't linger, it started off fast paced and didn't let up. I am not a 'drawn' out person and it held my attention from start to finish and it held my attention throughout. It wasn't something I wanted to put down, although during my day, I have to. I get to listen in 30 min sections.


What did you like best about this story?

What I enjoyed the most, was the fact that even though there are many AI stories, and some are very similar in nature. This didn't follow the 'plan' I first envisioned. I'm an avid reader, of both scripts and stories, and listening to this was great.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

There were quite a few to be fair. And Adam's realisation's came with great consequences, the fact that he could and would have jumped into the crusher to save his partner, and the fact that Tera basically had been lied to and abused all her life. There were huge decisions going on as Adam processed all these.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think everyone will be glad when Adam isn't dead. We all think Tera's killed him off. It was both written well and narrated well. Just enough emotion, sadness and then joy when we switch chapters and into Adam's POV inside the police computer.


Any additional comments?

Considering I'm not a 'cop' kinda girl and thriller stories really aren't my thing either, this was well executed. I would defo listen to more from both the writer and narrator.

I did buy this the other day and hadn't expected to get through it so quick. I kinda wished it had been longer, because I'd only just started to get into it, and then it was over.

Although the story itself didn't warrant being any longer, perhaps I just hoped there was more for the pair, then I went to look and I guess there is, as this is book 1. So now I'm happy.

Thanks for the ride, I'll be back! lol
