Ares (Nomad Series Book 1)
K.A. Finn, author
He wasn't expected to survive. No one else did, and for twenty years, he has managed to stay off their radar. Until now. Until her. Gryffin was the sole survivor of The Foundation's experimental project to transform human children into hybrid cyborgs - half human, half machine. The program failed and he was sent on a one way trip into The Outer Sector where he was left for dead. He has survived for twenty years by suppressing his human emotions and embracing his machine side. Officer Terra Rush believes in her duty to the Foundation. The Sector needs to be prepared for colonization, and nothing can stop her from doing her job...except him. When Gryffin saves her from an attack, Terra uncovers a terrible secret. The Foundation has been lying to her...and maybe they still are. They have labelled Gryffin a killing machine, yet he acts more human than many of The Foundation's leaders. He has awakened intense feelings in Terra that throw her loyalties into question, and even though he pushes her away, she is determined to find out the truth about the cyborg program. Gryffin refuses to be a mindless soldier, yet escaping The Foundation's control and stopping the colonization of his home will require Terra's help. Can Gryffin overcome the machine inside and trust her? Or will getting in touch with his human emotions destroy him once and for all?

Ares by K.A. Finn is the story of Gryffin, a cyborg who was left to die in the Outer Sector by the Foundation. Part of a failed experiment, Gryffin was a lost cause, but he survived. The human in him was almost dead, the machine in him was more alive than he ever was. For twenty years he survived only by taking up his machine side. However, his time is now. He will save his people from the cruel rule of the Foundation. Officer Terra Rush has been a loyal server of her community. The Foundation wants her to prepare the Sector for colonization. However, when Gryffin saved her life from an attack that might have killed her, she rethinks everything. The Foundation had lied to her, kept things secret from her, and it looks like there are more secrets that might need uncovering. 

With Gryffin on the Foundation’s hit list, there is not much they can do. However, Terra Rush does not know that Gryffin has honed his machine side. He is the “killing machine” that the Foundation has deemed him to be. But his human side is awakening. Terra has awakened the human in him and together they are going to stop all the bad in the community and save the people who deserved to be saved.

A great sci-fi that kept me entertained, this is a novel that makes you want to read more. The whole story, including Gryffin, is very cool. The story unfolds in the best possible manner and the characters are well developed. Terra is an amazing female protagonist. She is smart, confident and very courageous. She braved the challenges and resisted the change. It was a joy to read. Kudos to Finn for writing such a great novel.
