Publisher's summary

Dr. Chris Alexander, a borderline sociopath and technological genius, has designed an advanced cybernetic life form from prototype decommissioned military drones and top-secret experimental DARPA technology. The HADroid was supposed to be a military grade robot with the transplanted heart and brain of a human donor that would transform it into a devastating state-of-the-art war machine when activated by its onboard human operator.

When the mad doctor steals the dying child of a simple Amish couple and transplants the brain and cardiovascular system of their dying 11-year-old autistic son into the incredibly lethal robot, the dark forces of government come looking for their investment.

Dr. Alexander and the monster escape into another Amish community to hide among the plain folk. Frank, the autistic 11-year-old boy trapped inside the body of the world's most deadly robot, befriends another child who will help the prisoner inside the machine. Tensions arise among the plain and pacifistic yet closed minded Amish as they begin to suspect just what kind of technological monstrosity is hiding among them. Before long, hard men who do the government's most dirty deeds will come looking for a killing machine only to find a boy named Frank who has the power to defend a closed society from the worst of the world.

solid story for the audiophiles and readers alike

First about the audio book itself... The narration was good and the sound quality was sharp. Nothing bad to say at all.

The story itself was enjoyable and unpredictable. There were only two aspects that I felt detracted from the story. The first was the initial mentions of the main character's drinking problem. He tells you.. a lot. Thankfully the story takes off and so that gets lost along the way. The second and probably largest problem with the story was the over the top aspect of the villain. I suppose there could be people like that out there, but I would have enjoyed it more if he were justified more in his thoughts as opposed to simply enjoying being a badass. Beyond that, I liked it. I never felt the desire to put the book away and the ending surprised me.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
