Summary

"Never in a thousand years" just expired.

Charlie7 has his secrets. Every robot knows that history has a dark period where he was the only one alive, with no one to corroborate his story. That was before an old adversary, long believed dead, emerges from hiding to expose Charlie7 as a fraud.

With a newfound internship mixing new robotic personalities, Rachel Eighteen stumbles across an old file in the archive that no robot can access. The data it contains could upset the underpinnings of the thousand-year-old robotic civilization. When rebel forces seize control of the factory and take Rachel prisoner, can she hold out long enough for help to arrive? Does she even want to? What value does the truth have when the lie is all you've ever known?

Charlie7, for one, hopes never to find out.

Extremely enjoyable continuation of the story!

If you enjoyed books 1-3 this will be just as enjoyable. I think what I enjoyed most was getting to know more about the history of how the robotic world came to be. The alien and Charlie backstory was just as interesting as the 'current' events revolving around the Rachel Eighteen plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed the narration by Paul Michael Garcia in book 1-3 and this book continues the excellent narration. I really liked the voicing of characters, pacing, and performance all around. No complaints!

The story continues

A great story about humanity being destroyed by aliens. Then, robots rebuilding the earth in anticipation of humanity being reborn. And after a thousand years robots recreate human life. Then the fun really begins.

Plots and history

After Rachel 18 stumbles across old files that the robots were programmed to not see it springs a revolution that had been brewing and planned for a long time. Robots who were not satisfied with their life and wanted to become human wanted to seize control so they could clone humans and overlay their brain with themselves. This involved putting all the humans in danger as well as exposing secrets that Charlie 7 had kept hidden for a thousand years.

This book was end to end excitement. It was well written and the story held together and kept my interest throughout. The narrator was outstanding and the use of multiple voices for the characters was excellent.

I look forward to the remainder of the books in this series.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

The plot thickens

In Book 4 of the Robot Geneticists series, Eve-Fourteen, Charlie-7 and Plato return to the stage as another of Charlie-7's allies also return; and we learn more about the truth of that darkest of times, a millennium ago when humanity was exterminated completely, leaving only one single sentient on Earth - Charlie-7.

Garcia continues to be a good narrator. Would like to hear more distinctive voices that at least distinguish between the Robot's primary personality and the growing cast of cloned humans.

Recommended for: Fans of the other RG books, fans of sci-fi thrillers such as "Blade Runner"

Many new elements to the story arc

New major plot evidence and settings keep this series from growing stale. I like where J.S. Morin is taking the overall story arc, and I like that each book finishes some part of the story even as it opens new avenues to explore. This one certainly does both. There's a satisfying ending but at the same time a whole new can of worms is opened up and I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

There's still an innocence here that really could make this suitable to be in the YA realm, but without the cloying "twilight bullshit" that you see rampant in those books. Overall this was a good read.

I'm not a huge fan of the narrator, but have no specific complaints. Listen to the preview. If it works for you, awesome. He does a good enough job. If you've read the others in the series you know what you're going to get.
