In a world run by machines, humans are an endangered species.
The Great War is over. The robots have won. The humans who survived have two choices: they can submit and serve the vicious rulers they created, or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate, unforgiving landscape where it's a crime just to be human. And the robots aren't content--following the orders of their soulless leader, they're planning to conquer humanity's last refuge and ensure that all humans bow down.
The only thing more powerful than an enemy who feels nothing is a warrior with nothing left to lose. Six, a feisty, determined woman whose parents were killed with the first shots of the war, and whose siblings lie rotting in prison, is a rebel with a cause: the overthrow of robot rule. Her partner in crime is Dubs, the one person who respects authority even less than she does. On the run for their lives after an attempted massacre, Six and Dubs are determined to save humanity before the robots finish what the Great War started and wipe humans off the face of the earth. Pushed to the brink of survival, Dubs and Six discover a powerful secret that can help set humanity free, but they'll have to trust the unlikeliest of allies--or they'll be forced to bow down, once and for all.
Humans, Bow Down is an epic, dystopian, genre-bending thrill ride from the mind of James Patterson, the world's #1 bestselling author.
I received this book for free from publisher/pr firm in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I am a huge fan of James Patterson books as you probably would see looking at my bookshelves. I think he can put together amazing stories that are super fun and quick to read. Whenever I read his books I literally breeze through them in a matter of a day or two because they are just that good and keeping me drawn in.
In Humans, Bow Down James Patterson has teamed up with Emily Raymond who you might recall worked together on First Love and The Lost from Witch & Wizard.
We all know as technology advances that we are capable of creating robots and actually have. Well fast forward there is a great war. Its humans vs robots and in the end the robots have won. Its a world that is now run by machines and humans are an endangered species. If you have survived you have two options you either have to submit or be banished.
Our main character Six has decided that she will never submit to the robots so she has been banished but is on the run in order to survive. Six is a kick ass character who takes nothing from anyone especially a robot. Six knows she has nothing to lose and possibly everything to gain. Can she unlock the secret that can save her and the other humans?
One thing that I wasn’t sure about was the graphics that are in the book but they quickly made sense and followed the storyline. Did the book really need them? I don’t think so.
I have to say that with the way the book ended I feel as though there could be another book because there is still quite a few loose ends that need to be tied up. Would I read it? More the likely.
Thanks Little Brown for sending the book to me.
