Metal Chest by Chris Yee To The Moon Publishing Sci Fi & Fantasy Pub Date 10 Jun 2018
Metal Chest is a fun, short novel about the friendship that develops between a household robot and a rogue in a post apocalyptic world where neither fit in. Deacon is a Han Solo type, joking and conning his way through life. Silas, is his perfect straight man, making for a friendship that is unique and fun to watch develop. Their natural comic interplay brings a natural and very human feel to the hardship of their post apocalyptic world. The end may have come, but life goes on. The biggest weakness was simply how short the novel was. It was more of a novella, but enjoyable nonetheless.
