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.

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.

Sequel not worth the time

This is hard because I read this authors previous books and enjoyed them. But this book is abysmal. Uninteresting amalgamation of who cares. There are no characters worthy of caring about. Nor does the story make any point about artificial intelligence or what the future may hold. I gave up on it.

Ending disapointing

Good story. Over descriptive at times. Ending lacked an ending. Would love to see movie.

Killer butterflies.

I didn't go in expecting robopocolypse, but this was a pretty steep departure from the last book.

Killer butterflies. Characters being rewritten in. Characters being killed, then un-killed. Character motivations being drastically changed from what they were clearly in the previous book.

It's not a bad book. It's well written, but much in the book felt forced, unnecessary, or contradictory.

A ride on the edge of your seat!

This is an amazing series about the struggle to survive in a world where robots and AI fight to eliminate the human-race. All the narrators do a great job of getting you really into the story. The way they express all types of situations with the inflections in their voice it's really awe-inspiring. I had moments on my train ride to work where I would scream out in response to a scene.

Good but not as good as the first.

I really really liked the first one and it's hard for me to pinpoint what wasn't so great about this book. It wasn't holding my attention like the first. Still a good book and I will continue to read the series.

A unique vision of a world gone wrong.

Great book for science fiction fans and action movie lovers, and well done narration. Ready for the next novel. This and Robopacalypse are some of the most unique stories I have read in a long time.
