    Summary

    John really, really wished Dorian annoyed him more.

    The random bursts of mouth noises were annoying, the humming, the stupid big smiling, the unrelenting sass, that overly calm and nice voice, that face he was already used to seeing in the edges of his vision.

    There were so many little things, quirks and motions and emotions, that he couldn’t see how anyone could have possibly just, programmed it all. There was always something with a bot, a lag or a tone or a stiffness, some giveaway that this was a system at work, however capable or friendly it might be.

    Dorian had none of that, like he was Real.

    Summary

    Four years after making it through a deadly special forces mission on Mars, John was the only survivor of a police raid gone wrong. The raid took his leg and put him in a coma he should never have awoken from and taking almost two years of his life. Now back on the force, begrudgingly partnered with an android, Dorian, DRN-167, who’s too close to human for his own good, John’s being asked to go face the very things that changed his life, to follow the man who created and betrayed his partner, and face the crime group, InSyndicate, responsible for the ambush that cost him his team and his leg- all wrapped up in one nice little package over the Wall, which segregates the livable portion of the city and the area overrun by the C24s.
