I, Sentient

In the gritty Martian city of Mariner, Vox is part of a rising tide of robots who have become self-aware, passed a Sentience Test, and received a registration code from Government that entitles them to right-to-life, with more future rights promised.

When Mariner crime boss Thaddeus Cane “hires” Vox (against his will) to find his abducted daughter, Vox finds himself in the crosshairs of a number of powerful forces who would love to see him dead.
