Reuel CO469 is tall, dark, and infinitely dangerous. His is the face that launched a million flyers. He is the first of his kind, the first cyborg to go rogue, the leader of all who'd come after him, and the only rogue nobody has ever come close to catching. From the moment Dalia first sets eyes on him, she knows she is lost. She can no more resist his dark allure than she ...more

****4 Cyborg Panty Melting Stars****

Reuel, Panty Melting Machine, Rouge Cyborg Badass, & Leader of all Cyborgs


“I am not a machine. This flesh feels. This body desires. This mind wants. So, unless you want to discover what it is like to spread your legs for a cyborg, I would advise you to stop rubbing your very tantalizing little body against mine. I might decide to fuck you until no human man will ever do for you again.”

I fell in love with Reuel in The Awakening and couldn't wait to read his
This book was first published around 2005, and I first read it about that time. I think this is the third time I've read it. I wasn't aware of Goodreads at that time (if it was around then), so keeping up with stuff isn't an exact science with me.

This time I am reading the series in the 'new series order' and all at once, not as they were being published.

This book is more serious than the first two. There isn't much ditzy ruminating by the h. There isn't much POV from the two Hs trying to figure

I do love this series, see my reviews for Cyborg and Cyborg Nation for the back story.
This is actually the first story of this series (I read it backwards and still loved it!) -- the story of Reuel and Dalia. The Cyborgs are trying to create their own civilization and Dalia is now pregnant with the first Cyborg offspring. The Cyborgs were bred with no feelings, and the Hunters were cyborgs given artificial memories to make them believe they were human. When Dalia finds out she's really not human

2nd reading. Love this book. The cover makes you think this book is about a kick-ass heroine in the jungle. Actually, it's about betrayal and misunderstandings and learning and finding love. Fantastic read even the 2nd time around. *****

Previous review 06/24/11 Terrible cover - fantastic book. I am more and more impressed by this author with every book I read. This one has Dahlia, a cyborg hunter, waking from a medical eval with a med tech about to give her a shot. She can tell he's nervous and

This is futuristic sci fi/erotica, but it surprised me how entertaining I found it. I say surprised me because yes the sex and language is graphic but the author did some world building! Lots of internalized narrative from the characters as well which actually sorta brought the book down for me- made the heroine feel wishy-washy.

But all in all a fun read!

3-1/2 stars. A nice story from KO'C. This one explained a lot of the background of the cyborg world. It was not one of her funny ones. I felt it could have benefited from more explanation and more scenes to lead the reader to believe more strongly in the developing feeling between the 3 protagonists. It seemed like the scenes were there but they should have been longer and more developed. For example in the hold on the way to the cyborg planet there is a woman who everyone knows is crazy and the ...more
Brutally Honest
Interesting. Lacking depth, I think. But it's also been a while since I've read the other books in this series. I would've liked to see more consistent character development. Dalia goes from being very cyborg-y to all of a sudden revealing she had a close friend, Pierce, then back to being extremely cyborg-y, which honestly made no sense. Reuel, who in my opinion was quite different in the previous book, became exactly like all the other easily-angered, grudge-holding cyborgs. Pierce was a joy t ...more

I forgot that the reason I kept avoiding this was because it was a menage. Bleh. Anyway... I had some real problems with this one. Mostly continuity issues. I was constantly thinking "No, that's not right - it directly contradicts something said in the previous chapter." And that really draws me out of the story to leave me confused and annoyed.

The story itself is slow. You're treated to a lot of Dalia, who lacks even the tiniest bit of personality, trying to figure things out in her own head. N

The science is... nonexistent, so SUSPEND YOUR DISBELIEF. Logic is oftimes absent as well, again, suspend, suspend, suspend. Still liked it. The inherent logic bombs would have destroyed a *real* AI's mind though... XD

But, really, with school done for now, I'm enjoying my round of mindless reading about cyborgs and aliens coming to mutilate our cattle and steal our women... Wait!!! there haven't any cattle mutilations... YET


Yep, I dun like this one as much as the first one, even

Aslında "OK" bile değil ya neyse. Bu tür cyborg hikayelerini seviyorum, ancak bunu pek tatminkâr bulamadım. İlk başta kickass bir kadının hayatta kalma mücadelesi, sonrasında ise erkekle mücadelesi falan anlatılıyor. Hiç olmadık yerde bit gibi biten 2. erkeğin ortaya çıkması ise sıçtı batırdı hani. Bir de neymiş ona da aşıkmış. Ay haspam benim. Kitabın başındaki karakterle sonundaki karakter, tüm hepsi için geçerli, son derece alakasız. Kurgu zaten güzelden vasata doğru her kelime de seyir etti. ...more

2.5/5; 3 stars; B-

The cover is horrible and has nothing to do with the story. Why do they do that?

Otherwise, this story was not noteworthy in any way.The writing was ok and the author was more consistent than in Awakening, which made me scratch my head. It reminded me very much of Laurann Dohner's Cyborg series but I liked Dohner's books more. Meh.

Pretty good as a start to the series. Cyborgs are damn hot. Loved Reuel and Pierce and Dahlia was very kick-ass. The premise was interesting and drew a sad portrayal of a futuristic earth. It seemed, though, that as soon as we got to the MFM part of the story, it was over. I needed more details...but I do plan to continue reading.

Loved it!!! Course, I'm kind of biased as Kaitlyn O'Connor is one of my favorite authors. Sci-fi, sexy, and very erotic with characters I genuinely enjoy.

No estaba pensando leerlo.. hasta que lo vi y tenía que hacerlo. No se, es raro, porque son como los primeros pasos de un mundo nuevo y eso algo que no había leído antes. Un bebé que apareció por arte de la ciencia, Rauel al principio me dio mucha bronca por como trataba a Daria, aunque ella le decía que no entendía muchas cosas... o sea ella creyó toda su existencia ser humana, un día resulta que es un cyborg y él quiere que ella ya caiga feliz.

You can never go wrong with the science fiction futuristic space romance. Although there really isn't that much romancing here. I liked that Ruel got his own story. This Yoda like character was like a child in his own way. A lot of internal scars that were the result of battles and what humans themselves. I liked his development. I liked that life somehow found a way to evolve further. Even though they are areas that needed to be lets say eimprove on. I looked the establishment of a governing sy ...more

Shelves: menage, aliens
After coming to a conclusion, I give this book 4 stars. I would have given it 3 stars, but the end of the book and the epilogue made me so stinkin' happy. :-) I wanted Pierce, Reuele, and Dalia to be together when they were intimate. This is the first book I have read when the couple has a menage relationship and doesnt have sex together. (meaning mostly m/f/m not m/f with the occasional m/f/m). It was quite a change. I would have felt like I was cheating on one person or the other, even though ...more

I was disapointed with this book. The plot line was interesting in the Production Review and I was on a Sci Fi trip after reading Laurann Dohner Cyborg series (which I Loved) I thought why not try this. I felt the plot line was there for the book but the writing and dialogue were lacking big time. Its one of those books where you feel like you could have done a better job writing it. I just wanted more. Not the length but better dialogue with the charchters and more depth to the storyline especi ...more
I really enjoyed this scifi romance, first in the series Cyberevolution.

As the name implies, the cyborgs are rebelling. The bad guys are their creators, The Company.

Dahlia is a Rogue Hunter, until The Company tries to terminate her at a Med facility (where she finds out she is pregnant, but has no clue how). She is on the run and finally finds her way to the smugglers to get off-world.

Where she meets Reuel, leader of the Rebels, father of her baby, and the very cyborgs she has been trained to h
3.5 Stars

A decent read. I liked the subject. I also liked that the author doesn't spend too many pages re-stating the same things over-and-over-and-over, as some authors do [e.g. Christine Feehan]. (Maybe I should have bumped it to four stars, just for that!) The first sex scene "feels" unnatural--not in a good way. Also, something about the end just didn't satisfy. Maybe it would have been better with just a little more "fleshing out". Other than that, I liked the book.
Lady Sal
Crappy cover! But it is a good and interesting read. The plot, setting, and characters were well thought out. And for an Elloras Cave novel, the writing was pretty up there, it didn't sound strained or too ancient. O'connor didn't go overboard with her futuristic plot because, personally, it was pretty realistic. Although, the internal monologue of the characters bored me sometimes but I get it. In reality ... in real life situations, we've all got internal monos going on.

Recommends it for: fans of sci-fi-adventure-erotica
Recommended to Delta by: Sammy
Abiogenesis is another great ride on the Cyberevolution train. If you enjoy sci-fi-adventure-erotica, I recommend this series beginning with book 1, The Awakening.

This is the story of Reuel and Dalia. Due to some circumstance, Dalia is forced to leave the company and joined Reuel. The passion between them is sizzling, but Reuel is really a complicated man to deal with. I really like Dalia's character, the resilience and her way to deal with circumstances. The ending is surprising and gives a chance for the cyborg species. Overall, I enjoyed this story.

4.5 stars. Interesting story. I liked the characters, but I would have liked some aspects to be explored more deeply. I think the book should have been a little longer, but it still was a satisfying read. I look forward to reading other books from this series.

It was a good read. I wouldn't say that the language was graphic or overly erotic. This was the first time I have read a book like this(erotica). I don't know if I was looking for more in the detail. Over all it kept in interested.
