On a floating junkyard beneath a radiation sky, a deadly secret lies buried in the scrap.
Eve isn’t looking for secrets—she’s too busy looking over her shoulder. The robot gladiator she’s just spent six months building has been reduced to a smoking wreck, and the only thing keeping her Grandpa from the grave was the fistful of credits she just lost to the bookies. To top it off, she’s discovered she can destroy electronics with the power of her mind, and the puritanical Brotherhood are building a coffin her size. If she’s ever had a worse day, Eve can’t remember it.
But when Eve discovers the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend Lemon Fresh and her robotic conscience, Cricket, in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, infiltrate towering megacities and scour the graveyard of humanity’s greatest folly to save the ones Eve loves, and learn the dark secrets of her past.
Even if those secrets were better off staying buried.

“Your past doesn’t make calls on your future. It doesn’t matter who you were. Only who you are.”
It’s been about 8 months since I joined book community, and Jay Kristoff is one of the authors I am seeing from the start, Finally, I gather my courage and decided to read my first book of Jay’s, I started this book in the middle of June and after 40 pages I stopped, Why?
Because it is so high Sci-fi compared to those I read before and the starting is full of details. After 13 days I picked it again and finished it in 3 days, It really took me about 100 pages to absorb all the details and story setting but I really did it.
Despite too much details writing is so beautiful, I didn’t think I can absorb this world that easily and connected with characters but I did because the writing made me.
“Breathing in the ink and feeling all those wonderful lives beneath you fingertips. In between the pages, I’m an emperor. An adventurer. A warrior and a wanderer. In between pages I’m not myself-and more myself than in any other place on earth.”
The story is neatly defined, Eve who is a domefighter living a normal life according to her world’s standard until one night she showed her extraordinary power and there is no place in her world for deviates. But is it she or her whole life had been a lie?
“Deviation’ or whatever you want to call it? That’s just another expression of it. You call it freakish. I call it incredible.”
Lemon Fresh, Yup it is her name and there is a story behind it, she is such a witty character, her sense of so lit, I love her and Eve’s bonding.
Cricket, I want to cuddle this little thing( Don’t tell him I called him little) 😁
Ezekiel, a creation
near to better than human, Oh boy, he is so dreamy.
This whole life l1k3 concept is so unique, Robots can be that much perfect? I loved the whole idea of three rules and LifeL1ke against those rule. There are so many twists and turns, The ending left me hanging and I am cursing again to myself to start a new series which ended on a cliffhanger.
“It’s simple to love someone on the days that are easy. But you find out what your love is made of on the days that are hard.”
