He says, "As with the Marvel movies, my books are explorations of character. But my characters aren't 'chosen ones.' They're ordinary people who do extraordinary things using compassion, wit, humor, and kindness: even when their choices are difficult. RNWY: Book 1 is also about some of the ways technology will challenge some our basic assumptions about life: and how we can rise to the occasion with expanded notions of family and love. You can follow RNWY Universe as it develops on Instagram @RNWYUniverse and at RNWYUniverse.com."
Love sci-fi. Always have to figure out if there is going to be a lot of science or a lot of fiction first. Cyberpink is a lot of fiction. It begins a little slow but the story is compelling. I kept reading wanting to know more about the characters. The strength of the story is the Cyberpink girls. Well done. I want more. Think that is a good sign. Read the beginning of a series. The story is fast-paced and seems to have a clear direction. Like that it is focused on robot and human interaction. Fun read. Enjoyable.
Normally, I am a nonfiction reader, but I decided to break out of my comfort zone. It took me a moment to clearly grasp the unique characters, distinguishing the robots from the humans, but when I did I was able to get fully engaged in the sci-fi world or robots and humans living together and having power and controlling conflicts. I was intrigued by the dialogue and interactions of the characters, from what they ate, how they dressed and personality quirks. The story could have been longer. Even though short, it is still engaging--leaving the reader wanting more!
This is a good first chapter of a YA sci-fi novel. I liked the setting and the introduction to the characters. The plot does not kick in enough to judge, but it seems like the groundwork is being laid for some interesting possibilities.
