Description
The stunningly creative, epic sequel to Wilson's blockbuster thriller and New York Times bestseller Robopocalypse

"The machine is still out there. Still alive."

Humankind had triumphed over the machines. At the end of Robopocalypse, the modern world was largely devastated, humankind was pressed to the point of annihilation, and the earth was left in tatters . . . but the master artificial intelligence presence known as Archos had been killed.

In Robogenesis, we see that Archos has survived. Spread across the far reaches of the world, the machine code has fragmented into millions of pieces, hiding and regrouping. In a series of riveting narratives, Robogenesis explores the fates of characters new and old, robotic and human, as they fight to build a new world in the wake of a devastating war. Readers will bear witness as survivors find one another, form into groups, and react to a drastically different (and deadly) technological landscape. All the while, the remnants of Archos's shattered intelligence are seeping deeper into new breeds of machines, mounting a war that will not allow for humans to win again.

Daniel H. Wilson makes a triumphant return to the apocalyptic world he created, for an action-filled, raucous, very smart thrill ride about humanity and technology pushed to the tipping point.

        April 20, 2015
        In this sequel to Wilson's high-tech near-future thriller Robopocalypse, the artificially intelligent Archos R-14, supposedly defeated, lives on. It has released robotic parasites that change humans into cyborgs in preparation for a new war against its ancestor, Archos R-8. Meanwhile another AI, Alpha Zero, has settled into the U.S. military installation at Cheyenne Mountain, determined to create a world where humanoids can live free on their own terms. Wilson populates a fairly familiar post-apocalyptic landscape with sly refugees and weary soldiers whose newly augmented skeletons and senses are turning them into "walking weapon" in a chaotic war that will decide the fate of intelligence and humanity on Earth. This Hollywood-ready techno-thriller is packed to the brim with enough tough characters and brutal conflict to satisfy the most hardcore video gamers and action movie fans.
