Book review: Silicon Dawn

I was offered a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

This story happens 10 years before the events in Silicon Man. The new android model X3000 is successfully been tested in the space colonies but its arrival on Earth will just enhance the already existing conflict headed by the HDL.  If in Silicon Man androids wanted to count with basic rights, here we see a first glimpse of them wanting to be human.

There have been several cybernetists murdered in mysterious circumstances, and all evidence points to the HDL, but the police will need special help to find the murder behind these macabre crimes.

I always enjoy a science fiction thriller with cybernetic touches because sometimes they make you think about the big questions in life. It is amazing how in an under four hours book we could see some many things, the characters evolving and posing quite some deep questions.

Joe Hempel is fantastic as always, and he helps us get sucked by the story. I will definitely enjoy anything narrated by Hempel!

I love the world created by William Massa, and I would like to read more about it, especially if it is narrated by Joe Hempel.
