Description

“Hillary Huber integrates a healthy dose of skepticism in her characterization of Sam, giving her a quality that is fitting for a scientist…Huber moves the character along a spectrum of emotions that are sometimes raw but always under tight control.” AudioFile

An Audie Award Finalist

When a shipwrecked stranger washed up on the beach near research scientist Samantha Bryton's home, she was unaware that he was something more than human. He said his name was Turner Pascal—but Pascal was dead, killed in a car wreck. This man only held the remainder of Pascal's consciousness in a technologically enhanced humanoid body. He was, in fact, an experiment by the notorious criminal Charon, a practitioner of illegal robotics and android research. Charon has been secretly copying human minds into android brains, with plans to make his own army of slaves.

On the run from this most ruthless criminal, Samantha and Turner seek help from Sunrise Alley, an underground organization of AIs and androids that have gone rogue. But these cybernetic outlaws are rumored to have their own hidden agenda—not necessarily congruent with humanity's welfare.

Praise

“Hillary Huber integrates a healthy dose of skepticism in her characterization of Sam, giving her a quality that is fitting for a scientist…Huber moves the character along a spectrum of emotions that are sometimes raw but always under tight control.” AudioFile

“An epic chase across a near-future landscape, enlivened by twists, complicated puzzles to solve, plenty of intriguing technology, and a strong element of romance.” School Library Journal

“Huber creates an excellent true-to-character voice for Samantha and does a particularly notable job with Turner as well, gradually changing his cadence from slightly mechanical to wholly and believably human. Huber’s well-timed pacing and occasionally emotional reading enhance the story line, keeping listeners engaged through a multitude of escape and chase sequences…Plenty of action and a dash of romance.” Booklist
