A young girl, a synthetic fox, and an old robot that keeps saying: "ALL HUMANS TO THE TUNNELS!" More
This is the story of Carbon, a young girl who lives with Sentient, a synthetic fox—her mentor, teacher, and friend. Carbon and Sentient seem to lead a very uneventful life until the day they find Scars, an old robot rusting on the outer islands of Gaea-32. The robot keeps saying "all humans to the tunnels"—which is very strange because Carbon is supposed to be the only human left on the colony. But what if it's true that other human beings are living in tunnels, somewhere on Gaea-32? Carbon will not stop until she has found those tunnels and the people living underground. The truth, however, might turn out to be quite different from what she expected—or even ever imagined.

"Camie Elias has written a touching story of 11 year old Carbon, the last human on a planet inhabited by some rather deadly sentient robots, but protected by Scars, a rusting robot she finds, and Sentient, a selfless and loyal fox who will do anything to protect her. The author manages to convey in just a few pages the sense of sadness of an abandoned child who wants to find other humans, yet imbues her with empathy for everything around her, and a sense of heroism to save those she loves most. The ending is affecting and yet hopeful as well. Recommend for ages 10 and up." — Amazon US
