“Humans, Bow Down” by James Paterson is set in a world run by machines where humans are an endangered species. After the robots have won ‘The Great War,’ surviving humans are left with two choices: submit and serve the vicious rulers they created or be banished to the Reserve, a desolate and hopeless slum camp. Now though, the robots are planning to finish what the Great War started and conquer humanity’s last refuge, but an escapee of the Reserve, ‘Six’ along with her friend ‘Dubs’, knows she must find a way to stop the robots before they wipe humans off the face of the earth.
