Amazon.com description: Product Description:
A captivating tale of action, romance, and betrayal, Robota features breathtaking illustrations that add a cinematic scope to every page. Orson Scott Card, author of the award-winning bestseller Ender's Game, collaborated with artist Doug Chiang on the story and wrote the narrative for this visionary work. This edition includes additional, never-before-seen art that Chiang developed for a prospective Robota film. Plus, Gareth Edwards, the director of both Godzilla (2014) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), provides a new Preface.
An elaborate study in world-building that traces a human's journey through a preindustrial civilization, Robota explores the relationship between nature and technology. The hero, Caps, awakens with amnesia in a fantastic world of dinosaurs and talking animals — a land of enchantment dominated by giant robots and their sadistic general, Kaantur-Set, who is bent on human genocide. With the help of Juomes, a yeti-like hunter-beast, Caps must battle the tyrannical robots and rediscover his true identity.
