Not part of a series!!! 28 Oct. 2009
By Bookaholic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book picks up where Tiedemann's series (Mirage, Chimera, Aurora) left off. Do not read this until you have read Tiedemann's or it will make no sense. That said, I liked this book more than Tiedemann's. It actually tells an interesting story. Yes there is one plot strand that should have been dispensed with completely... I refer to the "a Robot has killed a human!" plotline. How many times have we seen this same plot line? I've lost count. The other story line is about the cyborgs who want human rights, while the nefarious crew responsible for cyborgs have their own sick agenda. This deserved to be the sole plotline of the book. It actually evoked some pathos with its portrayal of an aptly-named cyborg village, "Gernika".

Anyway, I was prepared to be frustrated at the end of this book, because it showed all the signs of becoming a series. However I was very pleasantly surprised: the author actually killed off a bunch of bad guys and wrapped the whole storyline up in 10 or 15 pages! YAYY!!! These days it is hard to find an honest-to-god self-contained novel!

The Universe Expands 30 Jan. 2005
By Lane D. Callahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am always glad to see new books in the asimovian universe. This is a continuation of Mark W. Tiedemann's trilogy featuring Derec Avery and Ariel Burgess from the Robot City series. This one adds a few new twists and turns that not only expands the robot conspiracy started by Daneel Olivaw, but also adds more to the cyborg aspect. This is book that needs to be in your Asmiov collection.
A sometimes interesting science fiction tale of a Robot society. 31 Oct. 2013
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have always loved science fiction movies and comics. Even though I have read numerous science fiction books, in most cases it was after I had seen the movie or TV series. One thing I did not realize, until I read the other reviews of this book, is that this novel is the second novel in a series.

That is probably why I had such a difficult time relating to the characters when reading this science fiction novel. This book, Have Robot Will Travel by Alexander C. Irvine, is about the developments which occurred five years previously when an anti-robot conspiracy on Earth exiled a roboticist, Deric Avery and Ariel Burgess who is an Auroran ambassador.

In this story a human has been killed, and even though Asimov's three robot rules are installed in every robot, the evidence seems to point toward a robot killing a human. The final battle at the end was interesting but I found this story dragged a little too much for my reading pleasure. Nevertheless, it is an okay story and those who are into this robot series will probably enjoy reading this science fiction novel.

Rating: 3 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Never Trust a Politician)

Enjoyable 19 Feb. 2006
By Alice E. Hadley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pleasant addition to the series. Good use of known characters. Interesting situations. Ending too tidy and killed off too many characters if he was planning to broaden the series as the "Star Wars" crowd has done so well.
