Summary:

Finn looks and acts human, though he has no desire to be. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection. A billion-dollar construct, his primary task now is to tutor Cat. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, Finn is her guardian, her constant companion... and more. But when the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world, and in Cat's heart. "Unique, heart-wrenching, full of mysteries and twists." - Tamora Pierce on The Assassin's Curse

    Wonderful story with just the right amount of "love, loss and robots".

    I really enjoyed this book. At it's core, I thought it did a good job of building up relationships between the characters; both family and romantic relationships. I cared for the characters. Then mix in the political aspect that intelligent robotic life will pose one day. The way society slowly evolved through the course of the book seemed like a very plausible scenario and one I enjoyed pondering about. For me, this really was an enjoyable listen. Compared to the last book I listened to, an Arthur C Clarke, I flew through this one getting through it in about 3 sittings.
