    Book Review

Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

God’s of the Machines begins with a seduction and murder. The setting is the future on a distant planet in the Andromeda Galaxy colonized by Earth. The lead character is Sam Benson, a New York Detective. Some would call Sam a racist. As the murdered bodies begin to pile up, Sam is convinced the killer is an android. He cannot find any concrete evidence that point to a suspect.

Sandra is a forensic pathologist who does autopsies. She and Sam are scheduled to be married; but his prejudice stands between them, so she decides to postpone the wedding. Sam turns to Sharon his sexy new partner.

Gary Starta’s style is graceful, flowing, well-defined, and dramatic. Starta has created his own world filled with robotic bees, aliens, androids and humans. This book is more than science fiction; it is science fiction, intrigue, politics, murder, greed, romance, suspense, mystery, terror, thriller, and interpersonal relationship. Combine CSI and Star Trek along with Issac Asimov, Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and you have God’s of the Machines. The characters are easy to connect to. Starta does an excellent job demonstrating prejudice and hatred of what we do not understand. This is an exciting read that sci-fi fans will not want to miss.

A great mix of sci fi, romance and mystery.
