The Mechanoid Cries Within (2019) by Brock T.I. Penner is a great short read.
The story follows a robot who is captured and left at the mercy of a demon owner with a sci-fi element. The story is deeply emotional and you find yourself really hoping for an escape. In so few words, the author really sweeps the reader up in the world and the characters present in the story which is really, really difficult to do. No word in this piece is filler. It’s a brilliant read and I would love to read more of this author’s work in the future.
The plot deals with the very important themes of slavery and control. The author deals with these issues in a very authentic and sensitive way and weaves these themes perfectly into the story and highlights these themes and raises awareness of them.
Gorgeously written, very fast-paced and an excellent read which brings out so many emotions in the reader from anger to compassion to passion about wanting things to be better. Very thought-provoking.
A really super write and a great introduction to this author’s work.
