More About the Author

I write in a number of fields, but always with the hope of telling an interesting tale that will incite a reader to think for himself or herself, to examine his or her own place in the world, and offer a little nudge in the direction of dreams, faith, and personal growth in spite of whatever odds a person has to face. I also believe we were all put here for a purpose. Hopefully, several purposes. I'm a father, a little league coach, a teacher, a friend, and a writer. I struggle to keep that balance, as many of us do these days, but I hold tightly to the belief that I'm doing all I can be doing, and doing what I should be doing.

This book is one of the best licensed property works I have ever read. Change the people and place names, and you would still have an engrossing plot and deep characters that would stand on their own.

I have this and "Freefall", the only other Android book released at the time, and this novel stands far above the other one, despite the other author's standing as a Best Selling Author.

If you enjoy a cyberpunk/Blade runner type setting along with deep plot, you will enjoy this book!

I enjoy good science fiction. I think this book approaches great. Why? It plays fair. It creates a vivid vision of the far future and then never fails to operate within that reality. It made me think about AI-based sentience, human AI partnerships, bigotry, the three main directives, corporate hegemony, pleasure androids, hovercraft, etc.

Mel Odom created an ultra-authentic android Drake that had to follow Asimov's three directives. Drake was consistent in all his (I should probably use "its") actions. He lacked human emotions even to the point of irritating me at times. But who said that sentient androids, lacking human emotions, wouldn't irritate us human observers? Mel risked making Drake unrelateable. But the risk paid off. Instead I feel like I've glimpsed what it's like to interact with an android and I found it fascinating!

The story is engrossing and mysterious. Events unfold on Earth, the moon, and Mars. I never felt like Mel was hitting me over the head with clues. On the contrary, there are more questions than answers. I'm hooked and I'll be purchasing the next installment.

If you're wanting a point of reference to determine if my opinion of good writing is compatible with yours - I'll gladly share my favorite author. Patrick Rothfuss! True he is a fantasy writer. If you haven't read him yet, I envy your future discovery.

This was an absolute delight. The book is fast paced. I finished it in two days and just purchased and finished the second book in the series. I am a big fan of Android Netrunner the Living Card Game and love the Android Universe. A not so terribly dark but fragile future. It really does feel like a living breathing Universe. If you are unfamiliar with the game/ universe, don't worry because it is very familiar to Asimov's created Universes involving robots and other cyberpunk future's (Except not so dark). If you are a fan of Blade runner, Total Recall or I Robot then you will feel right at home in the Universe. I have not read much crime/ mystery novels before and was happy it was such an easy read. The book is surprisingly clean too! Which is a big bonus to me and a little bit of a rarity in this sort of Universe. Read the sample if it interests you at all.

Odem builds his main character (bioroid) into a lovable character. His progression as a character is so fun to watch develop. I really like the mystery surrounding his development.

The first book's setting is on the Earth, the second the Moon, and the final book will be on Mars. It is really cool to have a series which have different locations like this. You can feel the tensions really building between the three.

Through the first and second books the plot continues to thicken and unravel making Drake's life and flashbacks at the center of a much larger conspiracy. I am really excited for book three!

If anyone can master it it would be Mel Odom. I have been readin Odom for over 10 years. I have always enjoyed his fast paced, high energy writing. Especially since he writes what can be termed as cyber-punk, or high-tech thrillers. The game Android is an Epic Board game that takes place in our Earth's future. We have made it to Mars and have been pillaging it since we arrived. The dystopian future is a favorite theme of mine. I like the characters and the plot of the story. It is a story that has been told a thousand times, but something about Odom's ability to capture that one twist that makes it even better caught my attention. The story is basic but allows you to have fun and moves along pretty well. I rarely got bored and thought about moving on. I have started the second i the series and am liking it as well. I highly recoomend it to fans of the game, and to those who like high-tech thrillers.
