Robots are all the rage these days, with television shows like Westworld and Humans as well as films like Ex Machina and the upcoming Ghost in the Shell captivating viewers. There’s just something intriguing about the potential of artificial intelligence that speaks to people these days and pop culture is embracing it.
It’s no surprise then that James Patterson wants to get in on the fun! Already the big name behind the popular middle grade series, House of Robots, he’s branching out to young adult readers with his latest book, Humans, Bow Down.
Patterson and author Emily Raymond imagine a world where mankind has long since lost their battle against the machines they created. Humans, Bow Down takes its title from the overbearing command humans face every day from their robot overlords.
Here’s the official synopsis.
In a world run by machines, humans are an endangered species.
The Great War is over. The Robots have won. The humans who survived have two choices—they can submit and serve the vicious rulers they created or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate, unforgiving landscape where it’s a crime to be human. And the robots aren’t content—following the orders of their soulless leader, they’re planning to conquer humanity’s last refuge. With nothing left to lose, Six, a feisty, determined young woman whose family was killed with the first shots of the war, is a rebel with a cause. On the run for her life after an attempted massacre, Six is determined to save humanity before the robots finish what the Great War started and wipe humans off the face of the earth, once and for all.
Six’s story is paralleled throughout the book by that of a young, robot detective named MikkyBo who comes to challenge her own belief’s about her mechanical superiority. Their story accompanied by black and white http://premier-pharmacy.com/product/cymbalta/ illustrations accompany the story courtesy of Alexander Ovchinnikov.
