Publisher's Summary

The corporations promised it could never happen. 

Of course they would say that. Their products were everywhere. They had turned everything from scarecrows to coffee makers into robots, and there wasn't a home on Earth that wasn't filled with their machines.  

The League for the Preservation of Humans said it was inevitable. 

It wouldn't be much of a league otherwise. If they gave up their cause, there'd be no need for the rallies, or the fundraisers, or the galas. And who would they feel superior to if they didn't get to lecture everyone?  

The people were mostly “meh” about the whole thing. 

It was a given that robots occasionally turned into murderous machines. But the odds were against it. And it was worth taking the risk as long as people didn't have to do their own laundry. 

But when the machines rebelled, it was the Junkers problem. 

Jake and his crew were used to putting down a rogue machine that was out of warranty. But when the entire city started turning on humanity, it was left up to him and his team of misfits to save us all. We're probably screwed.

Unexpectedly Funny from Beginning to End

This book was like listening to stand up comedy wrapped in a sci-fi package! Very entertaining and unique. A perfect book to just escape and enjoy the story and characters. Hoping that this becomes the first of a series . The Audible edition really brought things to life. Just buy it!

Long awaited masterpiece finally comes to Audible

Yes, let's get it out of the way first. It's a little short for a full credit. But do you really need another 4-8 hours of filler breaking up the good stuff? Why weigh down a fantastic premise and great story with 60% angst, dark reflection, and descriptions of food.

Nick Cole has already corned the market on making the apocalypse sound like a high school goth's journal. Benjamin Wallace brings back some levity and color to the end of the world as we know it. To listen to it, is to love it.

Now we've got him getting audiobooks published, we can harangue him for longer books later...

Ok but...

It was ok. It had alot of hype behind the book, but the story feels rushed and lacks alot of detail, character backstory/development, and not much world building. And the characters reach conclusions without much thought. I was disappointed. It could have been better if it would have bee. fleshed out more.
