I Heart Robot (Month9Books)
"The tension between the groups, the obvious attraction between the main characters, the ticking time bomb of Quinn's real identity and the secrets surrounding Tyri's birth makes for compelling reading. The world building was exceptional and the characters well developed."~ The Australia Times Books

The novel is set in a dystopian future, where people flock to "polycarbonate bubble" suburbias like New Arcadia, while the atmosphere undergoes a "Sky Rejuvenation Program". The story focuses on the central character of Cyrus, a detective with a penchant for fedoras, trench coats and "replica Cuban cigars". In a world where DNA is everything, Cyrus takes on a case to investigate the biological parentage of Benji MacDowell - the heir to a large eugenics company. The novel goes back and forth between the past and the present, until the mystery of MacDowell's heritage is revealed. But, as Cyrus comes close to solving the case he must face some ghosts from his own past.
While I found the beginning a little (just a little) slow, I quickly became very attached to this novel. The story is very intriguing. It has fantastic action, suspense, mystery and humour. The more I read the better it got and I found myself frequently thinking "god, this is good!"
What I liked most about it was our reluctant hero, Cyrus, who likes coffee and cigars for breakfast. Cyrus, in some ways, is a stereotypical detective, especially with that fedora and trench coat! But, I like this about him. We get the sense that Cyrus has been around the traps, he has a cynicism and a world-wariness. He is ultra street-wise and we have confidence in him to solve the case. He has a soft side though, and Van Rooyen shows this in a delightful way through his interactions with his only friend, his cat Cora.Read more ›

Couldn't find any spelling/editing errors.
Loved the names Zia and Nur-they are words used in Urdu, of course!
the story flowed beautifully.
the title of the book does connect with the story but the connection needs to be made more obvious.
i knew by the tone of the story that there wasn't going to be a HEA but found the ending perfect.
