They are in your house. They are in your car. They are in
the skies…Now they’re coming for you.
In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the
dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn
against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a
childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence
known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the
global network of machines that regulate everything from
transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In
the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed
by a handful of unconnected humans – a single mother
disconcerted by her daughter’s menacing “smart” toys, a
lonely Japanese bachelor who is victimized by his domestic
robot companion, an isolated U.S. soldier who witnesses a
‘pacification unit’ go haywire – but most are unaware of the
growing rebellion until it is too late.
When the Robot War ignites -- at a moment known later as
Zero Hour -- humankind will be both decimated and, possibly,
for the first time in history, united. Robopocalypse is a
brilliantly conceived action-filled epic, a terrifying story
with heart-stopping implications for the real technology all
around us…and an entertaining and engaging thriller unlike
anything else written in years.
