In a world run by machines, humans are an endangered species.

The Great War is over. The robots have won. The humans who survived have two choices: they can submit and serve the vicious rulers they created, or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate, unforgiving landscape where it's a crime just to be human. And the robots aren't content--following the orders of their soulless leader, they're planning to conquer humanity's last refuge and ensure that all humans bow down.

The only thing more powerful than an enemy who feels nothing is a warrior with nothing left to lose. Six, a feisty, determined woman whose parents were killed with the first shots of the war, and whose siblings lie rotting in prison, is a rebel with a cause: the overthrow of robot rule. Her partner in crime is Dubs, the one person who respects authority even less than she does. On the run for their lives after an attempted massacre, Six and Dubs are determined to save humanity before the robots finish what the Great War started and wipe humans off the face of the earth. Pushed to the brink of survival, Dubs and Six discover a powerful secret that can help set humanity free, but they'll have to trust the unlikeliest of allies--or they'll be forced to bow down, once and for all.

Humans, Bow Down
is an epic, dystopian, genre-bending thrill ride from the mind of James Patterson, the world's #1 bestselling author.

    If this were the first Patterson I had ever read, I probably would never read another. I kept thinking, is this one of his kid books?

    Comes really close to being a four star book, but it's super rushed (even for Patterson). The illustrations are extremely distracting and I don't understand why they are included. If you love James Patterson books, you'll probably enjoy it, but read literally anything else he's written first.
