Publisher's Summary

The stunningly creative, epic sequel to Wilson's blockbuster thriller and New York Times best seller Robopocalypse.

"The machine is still out there. Still live."

Humankind had triumphed over the machines. At the end of Robopocalypse, the modern world was largely devastated, humankind was pressed to the point of annihilation, and the Earth was left in tatters…but the master artificial intelligence presence known as Archos had been killed.

In Robogenesis, we see that Archos has survived. Spread across the far reaches of the world, the machine code has fragmented into millions of pieces, hiding and regrouping. In a series of riveting narratives, Robogenesis explores the fates of characters new and old, robotic and human, as they fight to build a new world in the wake of a devastating war. Listeners will bear witness as survivors find one another, form into groups, and react to a drastically different (and deadly) technological landscape. All the while, the remnants of Archos's shattered intelligence are seeping deeper into new breeds of machines, mounting a war that will not allow for humans to win again.

Daniel H. Wilson makes a triumphant return to the apocalyptic world he created, for an action-filled, raucous, very smart thrill ride about humanity and technology pushed to the tipping point.

    "Picks up right you where dropped off!"
    Any additional comments?

    The second book in the Robopocalypse series (maybe a 3rd) picks up right where you left off, but where you where dropped off wasn't what you thought. This book gave me the same excitement that I got out of the first book, and i'm hoping for a 3rd. If you are fan of near future Sci-Fi technology thrillers you have just looked at a review for one of the best.

    I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.

    "An okay story."

    An okay story that mixes a bunch of different elements together. Biggest issue I had were there were a lot of lulls that made parts of it drag by.

    "Good book, not as good as the first one"

    Almost a re-imaging, I enjoyed it, but wasn't inspired to listen to it again. That said, I would probably buy a sequel to listen to.

    Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.

    Story
    "Better than terminator Genesis "

    Slow start and some of the narrator make you grind your teeth but it gets better when Emily Rankin stops narrating 7hrs in. It's predecessor is definitely the better listen. But as Daniel H Wilson mentioned on Twitter that there's going to be a third. I liked it but I didn't love it.

    "I need closure!"

    Not a bad listen. It was good to hear the different voices. I got a little lost in the description of the areas though. Very dramatic

    Seemed like a cash grab follow up to the first book (which I enjoyed).

    "Following the apocalypse"

    Wilson's story continues into the early days after the robot apocalypse, now dividing the narrative across multiple factions.

    "Great story!"

    Excellent follow-up to the first book. The story picks up right after the first one ends. I liked the way the characters were reintroduced including some new ones. Can't wait for future stories.
