‘The Fallen’ By Steve Foley

In a world that was already tearing itself apart, imagination connoisseur and obsessive inventor Alan creates the world’s most advanced AI-powered android, Benign Artificial Robot Technology or BART. Who he loves and wants to protect. Bart is new to the world but soon learns that everything around him is falling apart and he wasn’t exactly accepted into this new world he was created into. Subsequently BART encounters a force he doesn’t understand and soon, he is pushed into a problem that even he, with all his brilliance, cannot stop.

Izkiah, one of the fallen, wants just one thing… to stop running. He wants to be at the top of the hierarchy again and needs a compliant vessel to achieve that goal.
