Her future is uncertain. Becoming an android, becoming more human, will mean going against her programming. Can she do that? Will her struggle to become an android ultimately be her undoing?

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Cass is known as an automaton; a lifelike robot. But unlike an Android, she cannot learn and evolve, instead she is all programming.  That is until she begins having memories of a former owner and after being badly abused by her current owner, her nanobots unlock her free will; programming she didn't even know she had.  When she begins to have stirrings of romantic feelings towards her owner's boyfriend, Cass begins to desire her freedom like never before.


I was a bit skeptical when Travis told me he was writing a sci-fi romance.  I mean, seriously, why fix something that isn't broken right?  I decided to read it with an open mind, and I was happily surprised. The story was absolutely amazing and if you liked Isaac Ismanov's I, Robot, you will absolutely love this novel!  The story itself flowed wonderfully, I had a couple of very late nights because I just didn't want to stop reading it.  This is a very creative look at robots and the future, I hated to see it end.  Now I'm eagerly awaiting another new release from this awesome author!
