Machines aren’t supposed to feel, but this cyborg can’t help falling in love.
Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost.
Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn’t find the answers he’s looking for, he does discover that affection isn’t just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism—once a man—choose?
Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn’t done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs—and ignites a fury for vengeance.
I read this book very quickly. There’s only 161 pages so it’s pretty short but it’s packed full. This book, albeit short, had a great plot line, interesting characters and had some unexpected twists and turns.
I think that’s the only reason I’m giving this little novel a 3.5 star rating. Things were going fine in this book, I liked it even though it seemed very simple to me. I wasn’t expecting the major thing that happened in this book which made this book worth it.
I wish there was more to this story and that it was longer, but other than that it was a nice quick read. Due to the fact that I’ve read other books by Eve Langlais I was expecting a bit more out of this story but overall I’m happy with this book. I love cyborgs so I was excited to find another series that revolved around them.
