A deeper truth exists, waiting to be found... inviting me to go every direction at once, and none.
A capitalist-fueled future where a patent pirate releases a dangerous new drug being covered up by a huge pharmaceutical corp & a robot / soldier team criss-cross the world to find her. Explores lots of interesting ideas surrounding ownership, pharmaceuticals, robotic personhood, & responsibility. The story unfolds slowly, revealing more in flashbacks & alternating POVs. Didn't love it as much as The Future of Another Timeline, but still good.
An AI uprising in the not-so-distant future. Humanity is extinct.
Our protagonist is Brittle, a caregiver bot whose humans have died who spends her time roaming the sea of rust to kill dying bots for their parts. She gets caught up in a plot for world domination.
Themes of altruism, sentience, and love, and what makes a thing human. Recommend. Thanks again, @InBooksILive !
