your quintessential sci-fi story with robots

“Android Winter is coming” is something that all the rogue android agents keep mentioning, although no one knows what it is!

In the year 2300, Androids and humans are living in peace. There are a set of rules specified by United Earth Alliance (UEA) that employs androids as special agents to work in the field and a human assistant who handles the engineering side of these androids such as fixing and upgrading them.

The story starts with one of the UEA agents, Brockway, going rogue while still on duty, leading to a massacre of more than one hundred people. He escapes the police and is assumed to be hiding in Aruba. That’s his last known location, because once UEA loses his trail the entire island where Brockway hides also gets disconnected.

Xandifer “X” Crenshaw (referred to as X) is one of the best androids created and whose task it is to find such rogue agents and kill them. Along with X his human assistant Shortcut are assigned on a mission to find Brockway then look into his blackbox to figure out what went wrong with him. They are being helped by a little boy named Sparrow.

Alongside this story of trying to research what goes wrong with a once loyal UEA android agent, android parts are being stolen and the human assistant of X, Shortcut, is falling in love with an android, Brielle.

Overall, it is your quintessential sci-fi story with robots and humans, suspenseful, action-packed and at times thrilling. With such a short story, it is worth mentioning that the author managed to frame great characters with nuances of humor and emotion. It gets a little slow for about 20 minutes in between when the author mentions the history about how humans and androids went into war, and how they can now exist today without killing each other, but other than that, it will keep you hooked. If the author would have described the fight scenes in greater detail, it would have definitely added more to the story.

The narration by Erik Johnson was outstanding with very different and unique voices for all the characters in the story, his narration only beefs up the story. The production was good too.

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!
