Ares by K.A. Finn is the story of Gryffin, a cyborg who was left to die in the Outer Sector by the Foundation. Part of a failed experiment, Gryffin was a lost cause, but he survived. The human in him was almost dead, the machine in him was more alive than he ever was. For twenty years he survived only by taking up his machine side. However, his time is now. He will save his people from the cruel rule of the Foundation. Officer Terra Rush has been a loyal server of her community. The Foundation wants her to prepare the Sector for colonization. However, when Gryffin saved her life from an attack that might have killed her, she rethinks everything. The Foundation had lied to her, kept things secret from her, and it looks like there are more secrets that might need uncovering.
With Gryffin on the Foundation’s hit list, there is not much they can do. However, Terra Rush does not know that Gryffin has honed his machine side. He is the “killing machine” that the Foundation has deemed him to be. But his human side is awakening. Terra has awakened the human in him and together they are going to stop all the bad in the community and save the people who deserved to be saved.
A great sci-fi that kept me entertained, this is a novel that makes you want to read more. The whole story, including Gryffin, is very cool. The story unfolds in the best possible manner and the characters are well developed. Terra is an amazing female protagonist. She is smart, confident and very courageous. She braved the challenges and resisted the change. It was a joy to read. Kudos to Finn for writing such a great novel.
