In the mid-twenty-first century, an uprising leads to a completely different societal landscape, in which a plague is spreading across the world. A remarkably intelligent former slave called Freeman searches for a cure to the disease, which is spread by a bite from beings similar in appearance to zombies. In the course of his search, Freeman stumbles upon the creators of the virus, a cabal within the government whose members call themselves the Masters and which has a shocking plan for expanding its powers. In a compelling narrative full of stunning surprises, Robinson, best known for his thrillers and adventure novels, shows that his fertile imagination is equally well suited to sf. This is an exciting, richly complex blend of dystopian fiction and mainstream sf, and as such, it will attract a wide variety of readers. --Jeff Ayers
XOM-B is an incredible ride from the first paragraph to the last jaw-dropping page... That's the genius of Robinson. He wraps intelligence and questioning in the guise of a sci-fi thriller with a little romance thrown in to boot. (Suspense Magazine on XOM-B)
With Xom-B, Robinson has achieved a rare feat by successfully telling a rich story that moves at a relentless pace while stopping just long enough to ask profound questions of existence, science, and what it means to be human. A modern Sci-Fi classic. (Famous Monsters of Filmland on XOM-B)
Fast paced with lots of twists and turns. The characters are well defined and most of the action is believable although a bit rushed in places. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Frank Seelye

Excellent book. I was a little hesitant at first not really into zombie books, but having read most of his other stand alone books, I decided to give it a try. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
This is so much more than another zombie story. The character of Freeman was intriguing to me from the start. Read morePublished 2 months ago by CarterFSU
The premise hooked me right away, but the suspense just didn't seem to be as intense as other books I have read by this author. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Pierre Ricolando
The robots are coming. The robots are coming. We humans won't survive, but that's okay. They're better than we are.Published 4 months ago by LeBlue
This book is a different and refreshing twist on the zombie genre. While totally different from his chess team books (which I love), it is still a worthwhile read. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Cheryl
