And so Began the War
Ian Anthony Hollis, author
Zoe Evelyn Lionheart, a young roboticist, and her house-robot, Herbert, are inadvertently swept away on an adventure to stop a war, after a powerful government vies for control of a much smaller, but technologically superior nation. When the smaller nation's government refuses to be controlled, robot production is put into overdrive in an attempt to create a robot army, alarming the world-renowned roboticist, Michael Alouicious Copperpot. After Lord President Smythe and Vice-President Perriwinkle realise that the robots are disobeying their expertly hacked programming, they resort to unleashing an army of mindlessly obedient clones to overthrow the robots and take control of the resistant nation. Seeing how events are about to unfold, and concerned that the people of the world they created are about to destroy themselves, The First Five Gods send in one of their own - Dalfor, The God of Order & Chaos - to try and soften the blow of the war and prevent things from getting out of hand.
