Are there other humans still living somewhere underground on GAEA32? And can an old rusting robot actually know the location of those settlements? A young girl named Carbon will stop at nothing to find out. She's supposed to be the only human left on the planet and can't wait to meet other people. However, Sentient -- the AI fox that has been her guardian and only friend since she was born -- doesn't seem too enthusiastic about the possibility of discovering other human beings hiding in the colony. Why is that?
PRAISE FOR ALL HUMANS TO THE TUNNELS:
A perfect example of the need for a bonus sixth rating-Star. It is exceedingly rare to find a story that I enjoy quite this much. Elias' language, writer's voice, is addictive, and the characters who take part in this novella are unforgettable.—Goodreads
The story of Carbon, Sentient, and Scars kept us eager to keep reading. My 9 year old loved the character, Sentient, and imagined him as an adorable, brave, and kind creature. We couldn't wait to find out the mystery of what happened on GAEA32 and were very pleased when we did.—Goodreads
This little book is great! A girl, and her synthetic fox companion find a robot that offers hope. A story about friends, white lies, and adapting.—Goodreads
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 (Paperback)
