One soldier, Sergeant Sheemi Tanamal, experiencing unbearable loss, possessed by her anger, wants as much revenge as she can get before she dies in battle. An unexpected mission changes everything.
Citizen Kellen Beaudin, is a shy, sensitive artist with a different, but equally troubling past. Kellen’s origin is deeply intertwined with the machines, although he doesn’t understand how or why. He learns who he really is when his machine obsession takes him on an incredible journey.
Neither Kellen or Sheemi will ever be the same.
In this book, human society was decimated almost to extinction. Intelligent robots that the humans had created called Chines reseeded Earth and helped humanity reestablish itself, then left. Many years later, humanity is threatened by an alien enemy and sets out to find the Chines again for help.
This was a really interesting book that followed two separate sets of groups who attempted to contact the Chines. It was really great how the author depicted the Chines and their society. And even managed to create some strong characters who were Chines.
I did feel like a few of the characters in the beginning were under-developed and under-utilized. And the story could have been a tad shorter without losing anything. But overall, its a great book and well worth a read.
