Blurb

Jodi's vacation to the eighteen-eighty seven frontier town of Moss Point, Arizona was supposed to be fun. And, it was mostly fun for the first few days. Horseback riding in the mountains and forests of Arizona was fun. Fishing in the wilderness was fun. Spoiling the stagecaoch robbery was fun. Riding Mark's big Quarter Horse was a lot of fun, and attending a nineteenth-century baseball game with Hallie was fun. But there were all those other things, those things that did not belong. Those were not fun. Some of the things that Jodi had to deal with were downright scary.

Prologue - Girl vs. Machine

It looked human. And, that made Jodi nervous. She felt like she was about to shoot a real person. She kept telling herself, It's nothing more than an android. It isn't human. Her hands still trembled as she placed the butt of the rifle firmly against her right shoulder, aimed, and squeezed the trigger. She pulled the shot to her left.

"Rats!"

The bullet struck the android's right arm just above the elbow. The android glared at the wires, metal rods, and plastic dangling through the opening created by Jodi's shot. The lower part of the arm remained attached by only a few wires. Scowling at Jodi, the android started running toward her. All illusions of humanity erased by the parts hanging out of the machine's arm enabled Jodi to compose herself. She aimed for a second shot and pulled the trigger. The bullet hit the android in the center of the chest, and it stopped running and staggered backward. It viewed the hole in its torso and stared icily back at Jodi. Once again, the belligerent android began moving her way.

Jodi had only loaded two bullets into the rifle, so it was now empty. And, the angry menace was still coming.

"Rats!"

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
