A Robot Cyberpunk Dystopia
The second release by debut author M. Black, dubbed Divergent meets iRobot. This novel will appeal to a vast array of audiences. Filled with haunting questions of consciousness and artificial intelligence, identity and self-awareness, politics and love, life and death, the reader will be engaged in an entertaining story filled with futuristic technology.
Set in the cyberpunk year 2055 in British Columbia, Canada, where humans are part robotic and robots are becoming more humanlike, the line dividing the two is becoming less clear.
When sixteen-year-old Fione meets Maci, a twenty-one-year-old Flexbot who escapes from ImaTech located along the crust of the Coast Mountains, Fione’s life is taken on a roller-coaster ride of events that begins with trying to save Maci from ImaTech Corporation and ends with trying to save the country.
With Fione's best friend and love interest, a Flexbot named Pix, Fione and Maci must come face-to-face with the greatest dangers their country has ever seen and learn the disturbing secrets of the popular online program Exotiqa—which her friends, family, and most of the country has downloaded onto their Cerebral Slabs. This won’t be easy, since Maci’s only love and greatest enemy, nicknamed Thirty, is tracking her every move.
Told from two points of view: Maci’s and Fione's, this dystopia is filled with plenty of futuristic technology, and tells a story of a world that could eerily mirror our own one day.
Read this Robot Cyberpunk Dystopia if you are a fan of Divergent, The Hunger Games, Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) and futuristic technology. Two young, but strong female heroines must save the fragile system crumbling around them. This story will even satisfy those looking for something with more philosophical themes and it is a perfect fit for readers interested in science fiction, artificial intelligence and robotics.
SIMULATION is a fictional novel and is the DEBUT release from Dystopian Thrillers author M. Black. A YA SyFy dystopia, along the lines of City of Ember meets CW’s The 100. This story will capture your heart and still won’t let go even at the end. Written in part while listening to Outside by Ellie Goulding, this story contrasts technology to nature, rich to poor, privilege to hardship, and illusion to reality.
“No one is getting in but whom we allow, and no one is ever getting out.”
