    As you can see, Eve Langlias' Cyborg series is popular around here.  In book one we are intruduced to a futuristic world where Cyborgs have revolted and regained their free will.  We met a team of them that rescued Chloe and now they are searching for her "sisters".  Solus and his team don't really expect to run into one of them at the abandoned asteroid mine, but now that they have, they will do anything to keep her safe and help her remember who she was.




    F814 isn't really interested in all that.  After she revolted she decided she was just fine continuing to mine on the asteroid, after all, that is what she was programmed to do.  But her recent malfunction has given her strange new dreams and nightmares, and she finds Solus strangely interesting.  But the humans won't give up their prize so easily, making for a few great combat scenes as well.




    Solus and F814 are both afraid of their emotions - they aren't logical - they don't make sense (does not compute).  They both fight them tooth and nail, but the emotions are stronger than their programming, but can either of them admit it when they both think emotions are flaws?  This was a fantastic addition to the series and I loved it.  It's hard to imagine that two cyborgs could be such dynamic and interesting characters, but Eve pulls it off wonderfully.  Eve's snarky humor is present throughout and is perfectly placed to really make a few scenes.  If you love Sci-fi, you must read this series.

    Ok, I read this book a few weeks ago, but haven’t had a chance to review it. So here I am, and I’m so happy I get to share my second experience with Eve’s cyborgs with you! Seriously, I’m really such a shifter fan, but these ‘borgs might easily make me switch teams. If you haven’t read a cyborg book yet, I highly suggest you start with Eve’s. Her ‘borgs are fantastic. You have Joe, from C791, who is kind of like the leader of the group. An Alpha, if you will, although he certainly isn’t alone in that distinction. You can read about Joe in my review of C791 HERE. Then in this book you have Solus, who is… well, he’s complex… an stubborn. And protective. And caring. And wonderful and sexy all at once. He’s the type of man you want to slap silly because of his pigheadedness and then kiss each booboo because you know he’s a man unlike any other.




    See, Solus hates humans. Any why shouldn’t he? They’ve done so many very horrible things to him. And not only to him, but all of the cyborgs. He doesn’t trust them, and he wants nothing to do with them. That’s why when he came into his own realization that he was more than just a programmable machine he picked the name Solus, because its nothing like that of the humans. But this story isn’t just about Solus, it’s about F814. 




    We learned in book one that Chloe was not the only female turned into a cyborg. There were more. F814 is one of those, and her story is an amazing one. First, her name is actually Fiona, but it takes her a moment to realize that. Fiona has been misused and tortured in the very worst of ways. And at first she is controlled by her programming, overridden by it , in fact. But there is a loophole that allows her to lie. And so she does. But that is like trying to plug a hole in the dam with a piece of bubblegum, and its not long before everything busts loose. Her jerk of a supervisor has a surprise coming to him, and it certainly made me happy for it! 




    What I find very interesting is that in C791, Chloe thought she was human and had to realize she is a cyborg. In F814, Fiona feels she is all android (which is different than a cyborg) and has to realize she has a human side. Two very different sides of the coin. I think the way Eve is flipping these stories around is just fascinating, and I can’t wait to see how the next book, B785, is handled. 




    This book is full of action, and a lot of realization about who these people are as cyborgs. In a way, they are all constantly learning and being reborn. I mean we have Seth, who is like a ‘borg with swag. He is manipulative in the best of ways, and has a heart the size of Mars. But you also have Aramus who is cranky and grumpy, but will do anything for his friends that are now his family. Every one of these cyborgs has a personality and a history that is often traumatic. 




    And if you want some steamy cyborg heat, you have nothing to fear! Eve definitely delivers multiple times on that, and every one of the instances are terrific. These cyborgs are more passionate than many humans, that’s for sure. Couple that with an indefinite supply of energy and you are in for a good time! 




    This series really has it all. So if you like some sci-fi mixed with erotic romance and a bunch of the miscommunication that we all love to see with our leading ladies and gents, I think this is a great series to get into.
