I tried to read this novel, but it simply wasn't my cup of tea. Perhaps somebody else will like it better. ( )

This is the third and final book in the iBook Asimov Robots spinoff series. The first two were Asimov's Mirage and Asimov's Chimera. Like the second one, this is better than the first and has a nice flow to the plot line. The story also is easier to believe than those used in previous spinoffs such as the Robot City and Robots and Aliens series. Weirdly, this is the first of the books in those spinoff series to really use sex as a plot element. The other books haven't been celibate, but they also haven't been as in your face as this one. That was probably the weakest part of the book, because those parts felt clumsy and extraneous.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743444604, Paperback)

In Mirage and Chimera, author Mark W. Tiedemann explored the fear and hatred toward robots - and their offworld owners - held by the people of the Earth, as established in the works of Isaac Asimov. Now, all the plot threads of Tiedemann's epic story come together as Derec Avery, Ariel Burgess, and their allies try to unmask the mastermind responsible for the assassinations, terrorist attacks, and attempts on their lives. It's trail of interstellar conspirators and murderers that leads the cast - both human and robot - to an unforgettable confrontation on the planet at the heart of the matter: Aurora.
