Publisher's Summary

When two equally intelligent androids face off against each other, who wins?
The year is 2300. Humans and androids live in peace after a devastating singularity and years of war.
Xandifer "X" Crenshaw is a special agent android for the United Earth Alliance. His job is to track down rogue androids and destroy them to keep the world safe.
When another android agent goes maverick and starts a killing spree, the fallout could shatter the alliance between humans and androids forever. X hunts him down, but what seems like a simple operation turns weird fast when X discovers that he's up against something far more sinister that is just as intelligent as him. And whatever it is, is also holds the key to X's forgotten past.
The future belongs to humans and androids...or is that a paradox?

Go for it! This One's Worth a Cash Purchase!

When I first saw this book here at Audible, I thought, "Here's one that's right up my alley," but I didn't get it because it is so short. I was hesitant to spend cash on a book by an author who was a complete unknown to me, and it's so inexpensive that it's better to go for cash than use a credit. I should have gone for it: It's a fantastic listen!

To give you an idea of how my tastes run, I love John Scalzi's and Robert Sawyer's books. I love mysteries as well as sci-fi, so when the two come together, I'm in reading heaven. (I really liked Red Planet Blues.) I'm not looking for paradigm shattering literature every time I read. Sometimes I just want some fun escape, and this book delivers that spectacularly.

I'm not going to go into any plot because you can find that out plenty of places, and I hate spoilers. As expected for a short book, Android Paradox jumps right into things, but I did not have trouble following it at the beginning. There were some times that I felt some plot points needed more development because I found myself getting a bit lost once or twice, but never to the point that my enjoyment of the book was ruined, just a "whaaaa?" moment or two, which is what the one missing star was deducted for.

I found the lead characters very well developed and exceptionally well performed by Erik Johnson. His reading was, indeed, a performance and not just a simple reading. He even did a good job with female voices, which is often a challenge for male readers. I loved the lead character; LaRonn made him very easy to root for, ironically very human in spite of the fact he is an android. Although I did see the end coming before I got there, it wasn't a foregone conclusion from the beginning. I actually think it's a positive that as a reader I was able to solve the mystery.

I'm going to be looking for more read by Erik Johnson and definitely getting the sequel to this as soon as I finish this review!


Note: I received this audiobook for free from the author via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I pulled no punches! (And I'm spending cash for the next book in the series if you're in doubt!)

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I enjoyed this from beginning t end, it was well narrated and kept my attention all the way through!

We have X an advanced android and his human partner Shortcut who track rogue androids and stop them before they do something really bad....they work for the UEA...well more and more androids are going crazy and the keep hinting that the "ANDROID WINTER" is coming...X is frantically trying to find out what that means and no one is talking!

GREAT LISTEN WILL CONTINUE THIS SERIES!
