★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Brobots is a first book from a new author, but it really didn’t read like one. The premise, characters and storyline were all fantastic…A fast and enjoyable read…makes you wonder what will happen when machines get too smart. …I really, really, really liked the premise, characters and storyline in this book. …I highly recommend it to science fiction readers.” (5 stars on Amazon, US/ 4.5 Love Bytes) Dan Mitton, Love Bytes Reviews

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ “There’s no mystery that the Sentients are a metaphor for any marginalized group that’s ever struggled for equal rights. At the core of what I liked best in “Brobots” is the eternal puzzle of why human beings, the most complex and miraculous of all biological machines, can become monsters.” (USA) Ulysses G. Dietz, University of Delaware, Author of “Desmond”

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ “What stands apart from many self-pubished books I’ve read, is how well-crafted the novel is. The language flows easily and can be read quickly without the stuttering I’ve found in works written by the less experienced or in works poorly edited… The main characters could be among my few, well-chosen friends. The science is all possible, but still remains fictional today which is how I like my Sci-Fi. The conflict … seems based on experience.” (USA, review of the paperback) via Goodreads

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Freaking amazing!” (Austria) GoodReads Review

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “This book has all my favorite things.” (USA) Mark C. Wade, Author

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ “[an] immediate storyline [with interesting] world building…had me chuckling out loud…” (USA) Amazon Review

Artificial intelligence can’t be programmed. It has to be grown. Some machines are learning who they are, and humans could do with a bit of that too.

Jared finds a cute man in a dumpster, takes him home, and then gets drawn into a world of robots, parenting and conspiracy.
