On Earth, when a rebel cyborg leader is drawn into a search for answers, he doesn’t expect things to blow up. And he’s not just talking about his house. Somehow his heart explodes, too, with the last thing he ever expected—love.Thoughts on Adam: I'm going to give everyone a big dose of my crazy eyes this review. Happy, fangirly crazy eyes, mind you, because I love metal. These cyborgs are just so lovably insane I can't NOT love them.
Adam survived the great cyborg purge because the military made a mistake, a mistake they lived to regret. They crossed the line when they decided to take away his free will and turn him into a machine. They erroneously thought him a slave they could command. However, their biggest screw up of all was when they didn’t terminate him at the first sign cyborgs were regaining sentience.
As the rebel cyborg leader on Earth, Adam is doing everything he can to rescue others of his kind. Part of his current, undercover mission involves infiltrating a top secret military facility where he comes in contact with a human scientist. A sexy scientist whom he’s ordered to protect.
What should have been an easy job turns into a fight for his life because it’s not just bullets and hit squads he’s got to worry about, but his heart.
How can one fragile female mean so much? It’s almost too much for a rational-minded cyborg to understand. When the choice is given, escape or let her die, he lets his heart decide, and after that, things start to explode—literally.
The Cyborgs: More Than Machines series can be read as stand alone stories, however, for total reader enjoyment and world immersion, it is recommended you read them in order.
Apparently, I have a weakness for men (and women) who like to blow stuff up and take incredible joy in bringing their enemies to their knees. Also, muscles. I have a weakness for those. AS ONE DOES.
So. Adam. He's a little crazed, a little cocky (lying, he's a lot cocky), and he likes his toys. The bigger, louder, and more damage it can do, the better. Also, he likens himself to Batman. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?!?! Laura could be considered his weakness, but she turns out to be stronger than she looks.
As much as I liked Adam and Laura, however, it was Avion who got me. Poor, poor Avion. He's a little broken (lying, he's a lot broken right now), but he's still a cyborg at heart. And that means he steps into impossible situations despite his frailties and goes all kickass on those trying to pull his metal brethren down.
Not going to lie, his story is going to KICK ASS. I can feel it. (I feel the crazy eyes as I type that. YASSSSSSS!)
I seriously adore these cyborgs. They're sometimes reckless, often dangerous, and always amusing. TRIPLE YASSSSSSS!
