Part of the Angry Robot series
Amy Peterson is a self-replicating humanoid robot. For the past five years, she has been grown slowly as part of a mixed organic/synthetic family.
She knows very little about her android mother's past, so when her grandmother arrives and attacks her mother, Amy wastes no time: she eats her alive.
Now she carries her malfunctioning granny as a partition on her memory drive, and she's learning impossible things about her clade's history - like the fact that she alone can kill humans without failsafing -

Review by AdonisGuilfoyle
The concept and world-building of <I>vN</I> is fantastic, and examining the relationship between parent and child through iterating cyborgs must be a psychoanalytic masterstroke, but I just couldn't stick with the plot or the characters enough to care. A little bit too surreal for my taste.
Review by SChant
A bit unevenly paced but some interesting ideas about power and robot/human interactions. Will definitely pick up the next one [iD]
