In her now-classic taleThe Silver Metal Lover, award-winning author Tanith Lee told the spellbinding story of Jane and her forbidden love for a robot named Silver. In this stunning follow-up, the legend of their tragic romance lives on. But nothing is as it was–or as it seems.…
As an orphan growing up in the slums, Loren read her clandestine copy of Jane’s Story over and over, relishing every word. But Loren is no Jane. Savvy and street-smart, Loren could never be stirred by a man of metal, her passion never ignited by an almost-human–even one designed for pleasure.
Still, when the META corporation does the unthinkable and brings back updated versions of robots past–Loren knows she must see Silver. And just like Jane, it is love at first sight. But Silver is now Verlis. If he was perfection before, he is now like a god. Yet he is more human than his creators think–or fear. While Loren doesn’t quite trust him, she will follow her twice-born lover into a battle to control his own destiny–one that
will reveal to her the most astonishing illusion of all.

Hard to measure up to a beloved classic however well written the sequel may be. It was nice to see some of the characters again, and there were some fine moments, but it didn't capture me the way The Silver Metal Lover did. The first book was told in a first person voice which was lyrical and romantic, and Jane and Silver were so firmly at the center of the story that other things and people -however interesting- almost felt as if they only existed to the extent that they affected the central pair. Which is a pitch perfect evocation of how it feels to be a teenager in love for the first time so it was an ideal fit between style and subject. This has the same feel, that the two main characters are immovably the center of the book, the same lyricism and the same first person narrator, but Loren and Verlis are different people, less innocent and older in experience if not in years so the style/subject fit isn't as good. Still worth reading, as I say there are some very fine moments.

A few words of advice: Get over the first book! MOVE ON. This is NOT the first book, it is not a sequel to the 2 characters we loved. Instead, this is an evolution. Okay, are you mentally adjusted ...
