This was an awesomely entertaining read on so many levels. The author is a definite science fiction fan, as I saw the influence of several of my all-time favorite movies throughout the story of Hell and Peyton.
The future of Earth is bleak and what remains of the human race is trying to restore the planet to its former glory. Most of the human race that is. There is something dark happening in the upper echelons of The Factory.
Hell is a blank slate but quickly gets up to speed after Peyton “awakens” her. You see, Hell is a construct and is a gift to Peyton, who lost his wife. He soon finds out she’s more than meets the eye and that he’ll do anything to keep her from those who seek to harm her. But the question is, why do they want her?
This is a complex story that kept me on my toes. Major revelations throughout and seriously, I don’t know how the author managed to take me by surprise so many times. I thoroughly enjoyed what I perceived to be an homage to science fiction movies of the 80s. The love story between Peyton and Hell was epic and steamy with a dose of hopelessness thrown in. His love for her was strong and true and that made him attractive in a major way.
A very original story full of ups, downs and everything in between.
1000 years after Earth has been devastated by a viral plague, the few survivors turn to genetic engineering and advanced robotics to ensure the future of the human race. But not everyone is happy with artificial life living amongst humans, least of all Peyton Chase, a doctor with a harrowing past.
When he’s ‘gifted’ a state-of-the-art companion that he can’t send back, Peyton is far from pleased. She’s sentient. She’s sexy. She’s everything he doesn’t want complicating his life. He nicknames her Hell. She nicknames him a lot of unladylike things, at least in her mind. Because there are rules to a relationship like theirs. Master and Slave. She’s supposed to obey him in all things. But if that’s true, why can’t she stop meddling in his life?
Unfortunately, time is running out for Hell. The deadly truth of her origins is about to catch up with her.
Together, Peyton and Hell must face their worst fears.
But is love strong enough to conquer all? Or is humanity doomed to face extinction?
