Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Tyri wants to be a musician and wants to be with someone who won't belittle her musical aspirations.

Q-I-99 aka 'Quinn' lives in a scrap metal sanctuary with other rogue droids. While some use violence to make their voices heard, demanding equal rights for AI enhanced robots, Quinn just wants a moment on stage with his violin to show the humans that androids like him have more to offer than their processing power.

Tyri and Quinn's worlds collide when they're accepted by the Baldur Junior Philharmonic Orchestra. As the rift between robots and humans deepens, Tyri and Quinn's love of music brings them closer together, making Tyri question where her loyalties lie and Quinn question his place in the world. With the city on the brink of civil war, Tyri and Quinn make a shocking discovery that turns their world inside out. Will their passion for music be enough to hold them together while everything else crumbles down around them, or will the truth of who they are tear them apart?

Review:

3.5 stars

Tyri and Quinn are gifted musicians who end up playing for the same orchestra.  But that is where the similarities stop.  Or does it?  One is human the other a robot.  A war is brewing between humans and robots, that could rip everything wide open and cause more of a problem.  Can their friendship survive?  Can they?

I worried about her and Quinn, hoping they would find their slot in life and that it would work for them.  The insta love, was a little over the top.  Yeah they both loved music, but is that enough?  Maybe I'm jaded, but I love reading, that doesn't mean I'll love every reader out there - sorry, not sorry.   The world that Suzanne create was really cool, not to techy and nerdy, more  an over view that helped you understand, but not dwelling on new technology.

The book is told by Tyri and Quinn's POV.  Quinn's POV is better, IMHO.  I just clicked with him.  No wonder she loved him.  Damn it!  I think I love him too!  I liked the book, it was a good read.  I like my scifi and I like this.
