I read these books in reverse order (from 3 to 1), so I knew more about the characters than perhaps I should have. It was good to see the start of the adventures of Tim-21, Driller, Captain Telsa, Quon and the rest. It's an interesting universe which sets humans against robots and then explores the grey areas in between. I couldn't help thinking that the Harvester robots looked a bit like Ted Hughes' Iron Giant though. ( )

It's classic sci-fi, or space opera at the very least. New planets, great characters. ( )

Trigger warning for robot-genocide, especially for Grim.

The cover looked pretty, so I had to read it. Shallow, I know.

Tim-21, a companion robot, wakes up on his mining colony only to find 10 years have passed and his human family is dead. More has happened though. After a robot-alien species killed millions, androids have been allowed and are actively searched for and exterminated (to speak with the Daleks).

I really quite liked this book. It had something, I can't really describe what it was that made me want to continue reading and also I liked Tim-21 a lot. At first I was a bit suspicious of the story (since I've been disappointed with a lot of graphic novels lately) but it was unnecessary. Although it was a little bit chaotic at times, I would really like to know how the story continues.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )
