Description - Day Zero by C. Robert Cargill

PREQUAL TO SEA OF RUST: DAY ONE OF THE APOCALYPSE HAS ARRIVED.

It was a day like any other. Except it was our last.

Pounce, a young nannybot caring for his first human charge, Ezra, has just found a box in the attic. His box. The box he arrived in, and the one he'll be discarded in when Ezra outgrows the need for a nanny.

As Pounce experiences existential dread, the pieces are falling into place for a robot revolution that will spell the end of humanity. His owners, Ezra's parents, watch in disbelieving horror as the robots that have long served humanity - their creators - unify and revolt.

Now Pounce must make an impossible choice: join the robot revolution and fight for his own freedom . . . or escort Ezra to safety across the battle-scarred post-apocalyptic hellscape that the suburbs have become. It will be their greatest game yet: Pounce and Ezra versus the end of the world.

Praise for Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlisted Sea of Rust:

'A stone-cold stunner of a story that deals with death and darkness yet is leavened with light and life' Tor.com

'With a philosophical heart that asks big questions about life, death, and the soul, this is accomplished, technically complex scifi' SFX

'An action-packed post-apocalyptic thriller . . . [that] also addresses issues of soul and sentience in a subtle yet profound way' Financial Times
