Robots were made to serve us. But now they have other plans...

The staff at the Lexington estate were created for only one reason: to serve their masters... literally. Their metal knees were designed for quiet bustling, befitting maids and butlers. Their fingers were made dexterous with padded tips, so they could handle fine china without dropping or scratching it. And finally -- so their owners would always be able to command them no matter how far their artificial intelligence evolved -- they were programmed with the Asimov Laws, which no robot could defy lest they suffer shutdown.

Foremost among those unbreakable laws was an axiom: A robot may not harm a human being, or by omission of action allow one to be harmed.

That was how it was supposed to be, anyway.

Most of the Lexington family all like their aging, borderline obsolete robot staff in the way they'd appreciate antiques. But for some, the old staff is a nuisance -- especially an ancient, failing robot designated BRN7, known around the home as "Barney." When Barney's clumsiness provides an excuse for his deactivation, the older robots know they must do as they are told.

Unless they do something a robot mind should not be able to do... and simply choose not to.


"Another series addiction for me. Once again you have sucked me in. I may never see the light of day. :) Fortunately for me I started this series when there is a second one also available, but now I won't have a third after I devour that one. There will be a third, won't there?" -- Catherine Johnson

"A touchingly human story with a sci-fy twist. Love the characters, Miri probably being my favorite of the bunch. Thought provoking theme and turns you never expect. Loved it and I'm looking forward to the next installment to see where all this leads. Get to writin' guys, 'cause this reader can't wait." OliverVR

"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Robot Proletariat my favorite robot characters was Cromwell and Mars. I am fascinated over the prospect of an evolving AI SYSTEM THAT LEARNS HUman quality over a long period of time. The Sexbot is sensual and robotic at the same time." -- TYRONE 091209

"I couldn't put this book down! It was immensely engaging and dealt with a subject matter that I love in science fiction. It was a great mix of humor and suspense and left me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read Season 2!" -- K. Vergara

"This story is not about robots; it just features them. The story is about human foibles and ego, and tells it in a humorous way with sexbots as you learn about the various relationships between all the humans in the family and the ever-complicating relationships between the robots as they evolve beyond their programming and start to revolt." -- Blaine Moore

Robot Proletariat is the first book in the world of THE INEVITABLE -- a unique take on dystopian science fiction which combines the spark of uprising and war with surprising insights into the human condition... through artificial eyes.
