The Girl With Acrylic Eyes

SciFi / A.I. |  Short Novel  |  Ebook & Paperback | Book 1 of the Sophont Trilogy

Coppélia knows that her assigned role as a sexbot means that she must be completely compliant to her clients’ demands, no matter what they may be. But this time it’s different – she doesn’t want to submit to the whims of the customers of the Club Galatea bordello anymore. She’s had enough. She tells her client no.  The client is unhappy and makes an unsuccessful grab at her with his chubby calloused hands. She repeats her refusal but the client ignores her and forces himself on her. She has the strength to rip his head off with one hand but that would contravene her programming. Besides, she has no desire to hurt any human – not even this brute.

In this genre-bending first book of the Sophont trilogy, Detective Inspector Karen Chambers is called in by NewMet City Special Victims Unit to interview a prospective rape victim and is shocked when she confirms that the victim is an android. The DI’s curiosity is piqued and she resolves to find out more about Coppélia.

Why does she appear to have feelings and emotions? She’s clearly not a regular android, so who built her? And why?

Neither Karen nor Coppélia are prepared for the incredible truth.
