In our future, robots known as Tins keep us protected from the floods, fires and diseases of the outside in what are called Compounds. But when the Tins become more our masters than protectors, humans rebel. Lexi019 is turning eighteen, and will then be sent into what Tins call the Electric Gardens. Since no one ever returns from the Electric Gardens, Lexi019 is desperate to escape. With her best friend Kyle53 and his sister, the three of them find an unlikely friendship that helps them escape. But not everything is what it seems in this Robotic Dystopia, and soon Lexi019 will be faced with hard decisions she never anticipated. Join Lexi019 and Klye53 in this four part Robotic Dystopia set in a future that could one day be our own.
Today, we’re a part of Rockstar Book Tours‘ Electric Gardens Blog Tour, and we have an excerpt plus a giveaway for you. Stories about robot populated worlds have always fascinated me. Let’s take a peek into the story:
I use my forefinger over the Square to highlight Skincom in the Table of Contents, which takes me directly to the section. Then, we all read along with the Tin.
“Skincoms allow you to communicate with us, and us with you. Before exiting the Compound, all humans will be injected permanently with a Skincom under the skin of the right wrist.”
I look at my wrists, my fingers caressing my skin, skin the Tins say is no longer mine. This isn’t a request, but an order.
“Section, Electric Grids.”
I flip quickly back to the Table of Contents with one click to find the next section which sounds like another type of Net.
“Grids protect us from the wild beasts of the old world. The Grids are our boundary around the Electric Gardens. If they should ever be breached, you are to report the breach immediately to 99099 who can be contacted using the Skincom that will be inserted under your right wrist.”
