More About This Book

Overview

Humans and androids are learning to co-exist as equals, but there are many opposers who seek to subvert their own creations and rule with absolute power ...
Humans, with their android creations loyally at their side, have colonised the Moon and Mars. The Earth and Colonies Defence Service (ECDS) keeps the colonies and space lanes safe.

On Earth, the Android Protectorate League, led by the enigmatic android leader Traviod Selius, campaign for android rights legislation. However, they are strongly opposed by the Anti-Android Faction (AAF).

Following the approval of the Human and Android Cohabitation Act, ECDS Chief of Operations Nakaar Bacvor and co-conspirators form the military wing of the AAF. The AAF attack the Moon and Mars colonies, but are repulsed by ECDS forces.

On Earth, with the AAF seemingly defeated, humans and androids unite to create the city of Utopia. Threats from a reformed, more powerful AAF emerges and the crew of the ECDS flagship Harmonia must formulate a defence.
The mysterious Evolved Androids appear on Earth with a sytoid child called Eirini, who has strange powers. Utopian Enforcement officer Rul Calibra becomes her unlikely guardian and protector.

Humankind's destiny hangs in the balance in the first series installment ANDROID: Earth - Book One of the ANDROID Saga.

Paul J. Ward was born in 1969 in Lincolnshire, England, on the day of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing. He has been fascinated by space exploration and technological developments his whole life. This is his first novel.

    I enjoyed how the author (Paul J. Ward) gives subtle nods to other writers, their works & other real or imagined people in this novel. Look out for Mary Shelley, Frankenstein, Sherlock Holmes (& Watson), the actor James Dean, Alice in Wonderland. I'm intrigued by the girl in the story called Eirini. She reminds me a bit of Aenea in Dan Simmons Endymion. I will certainly be buying the next book in the series called Android: Mars when it comes out.

    I loved the Robot series & Asimov is one of my favourite authors. Paul J. Ward takes on the mantle in the first of the ANDROID series, setting out his vision of the future. The novel really explores the relationship between humankind & their synthetic creations. A human faction want to oppress androids (how true that would be - why would the future be any different to today?) Looking forward to reading the continuation of the story in ANDROID: Mars. If you like Simmons, Reynolds, Banks, Baxter then you'll enjoy reading this. Thought provoking stuff.
