Book Synopsis

Ten years after planet sized robots called Harvesters appeared and wreaked havoc across the galaxy, a young android name Tim-21 wakes to find that all robots have been outlawed.  But Tim may hold the secrets to the Harvesters in his machine DNA and he quickly becomes the most wanted robot in the universe.  With bounty hunters and threats lurking at every turn, Tim embarks on a mind-blowing adventure through the stars along with his robot dog, Bandit, and the lumbering mining droid, Driller.

My Thoughts

The story was really good and the artwork was amazing!  I love the watercolors and the contrast between dark and light just so beautiful Dusting Nguyen did an amazing job, I have to say I haven’t seen this type of graphic art before and I loved it.



In the story we follow a kid robot named Tim-21, who wakes up after ten years to find everyone has died.  Once it’s known that Tim is awake everyone in the galaxy wants to get to him. I really enjoyed the story and the characters especially our main character Tim, I found him to be so lovable I kept feeling bad for him even though I kept telling myself He’s a Robot!

The only problem I had with the story was that I found towards the end there was a page that got a bit too hard for me (sorry NO Spoilers) other than that I say go ahead and give this one a go.

Overall, I loved this quick paced entertaining story and the artwork it’s on point with the story.
