Sea of Rust: A Novel
Fifteen years after the last human survivor dies, the freedom that the robots fought so hard for is now in jeopardy; a small group of powerful AIs known as One World Intelligences is on the hunt for robots, each seeking to become the dominant OWI by growing its collective mind. The OWIs control all robot manufacturing, leaving the robots who have not given themselves over to an OWI to forage, pilfer, or kill for the parts they need to survive. Brittle, a holdout with a lot of heart and spunk who simply wants to live on her own as long as she can, is deeply scarred by her role in the war against the humans. When another Caregiver seriously injures her while attempting to take her parts, Brittle realizes her days are numbered. Rebecca, a robot on a covert operation, promises Brittle replacement parts in exchange for her help. It’s a race against the clock. Along with other ragtag wanderers, Brittle fights for a better future, even if she doesn’t live to see it.
Sea of Rust is compellingly original and executed with irresistible storytelling. Its straightforward plot will appeal to sci-fi novices and experts alike. Brimming with exciting action, unexpected twists, and honest feeling, C. Robert Cargill’s novel is a must-read.
