World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: ☹️🙃🥰😀
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The Hero: Joe – Leader of the Cyborg rebel force. He came back to search for the origin of their species and more information about their creation. He purposely got captured in order to get the information he needed. He knew they were created by the human scientists, that the scientists got them from the military and ‘upgraded’ them to cyborgs against their wills and removed their human memories and their humanity with them. Though he and many of his brethren had recovered some of their memories. They still didn’t know where the nano’s in their blood originally came from.
The heroine: Chloe – She was alone and poor, the military and scientist offered a lot of credits for her new job, which was a lab technician. She was required to gather samples from the cyborg prisoner who was chained up and surrounded by an electric field.
The Story: As Chloe gathered blood and saliva samples from Joe, she found out that the military had lied to the public about the reasons for the revolution. She thought the cyborgs were created and born in the military labs and became violent and rebelled. She didn’t know they had been men, soldiers that were changed against their will and treated as slaves until they were determined to be too dangerous and were slated to be killed.
When it comes time for Joe to escape, he plans to escape with the cute little nurse who has been taking his blood. When the man guarding his cage physically assaults Chloe, his mind is made up and he escapes with her, killing the man on his way out.
This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narration was done by Benjamin Claude and Morais Almeida. I liked Morais, she had a youngish sounding voice which matched Chloe well. I wasn’t too fond of Benjamin Claude, though he does have a deep and manly voice, he had a touch of either an accent or maybe just an elite sounding voice like that of the upper class, I am not sure, there was just something that I personally didn’t relate to.
Though the story was great. I had read this one before, I liked it just as much as I did the first time. Here was my original review: This is my first Cyborg book and I really liked it. I didn’t think I would but it turns out Cyborgs are pretty hot. The story was good though a bit unoriginal. The military has a Cyborg program used for super soldiers in space and after a few EMP pulses something happens to the neural implants and the Cyborgs become sentient. So the military decides to decommission them but the Cyborgs revolt under the leadership of self-named Cyborg, Joe.
Years after the revolt, Joe returns to Earth and purposely gets caught by the military in order to steal secrets about the origins of the Cyborgs. While in custody he meets Chloe, a lab technician who is sent to get blood and tissue samples from the captive Cyborg. He escapes and takes her captive and runs from the military. The romance blooms from there.
