Summary

Hundreds of years after civilisation has been destroyed by nuclear war, the Earth is divided between the Trackers of the Amtrak Federation – a community living in vast subterranean cities – and the Mutes, who have evolved to withstand the radiation that has driven their foes underground. A long war for possession of the overground has killed and enslaved many of the Mutes, leaving only the Plainfolk to resist the Federation. And now the Iron Masters – a powerful people living in the traditions of the Samurai – have joined the struggle for dominance. 
    
  Steve Brickman, a Tracker wingman who has formed a bond with the Plainfolk Mute clan M'Call, has become embroiled in a web of deceit, double bluffing, and lies. Now an agent of AMEXICO, a secret intelligence force of the Amtrak Federation, he has had to walk a fine line between his divided loyalties. Struggling to be true to his own people, Brickman strives to protect his one-time mentor Mr Snow, clan M'Call's magically gifted wordsmith, his Mute friend Cadillac, and the object of his desire, the beautiful Clearwater. Together, they all have a part to play in the Mute prophesy of Talisman, the one who will bring peace to the Earth, and turn the red world green once more. 
    
  But now Cadillac and Clearwater have been kidnapped by the Iron Masters, a new threat in the power wars of the blue-sky world, and Brickman is determined to save them. With the psychic aid of his kin-sister Roz, and the help of the covert network of AMEXICO spies, he must infiltrate their closed and secretive society. Disguised as a Mute, travelling into the treacherous unknown, he must decide into whose hands to deliver his friends if he manages to save them; his AMEXICO handlers, who believe he is working for them? Or to Mr Snow, anxiously awaiting the return of his two disciples, the hope of the clan M'Call?  
    
  Iron Master, first published in 1987, is the third instalment of Patrick Tilley's internationally best selling science fiction epic, The Amtrak Wars Saga.

    Wiping out humanity is his number one objective—until he meets her. 
    Aramus has no patience or sympathy for the excuses humanity uses to hunt cyborgs down and eradicate them. He’s put up with too much at their hands to ever forgive and forget. But all that changes when he rescues a fragile human doctor who refuses to see him as a machine. She teaches him that perhaps not all emotions are a weakness and that love can make even a cynical cyborg like him stronger. 
     
    And for those who’d mock his change of view or threaten his female? Go ahead. His iron knuckles could use some exercise. 
    The Cyborgs: More Than Machines books can be read as stand alone stories, however, for total reader enjoyment it is recommended you read them in order.

    Emperor Wray Vasteri is the ruler of the Tornian Empire. His House has ruled the Empire ever since the Great Infection, which struck over five hundred years ago, and he fears he will be the last. The number of compatible females is dwindling faster than anyone anticipated. If they can’t find compatible females soon, their entire civilization will cease to exist. It is the reason he agreed to meet with Liron, the Emperor of the Kaliszian Empire, in Kaliszian space. It is the only reason they had crossed paths with a Ganglian ship leaving Tornian space, and it is the only reason they discovered the small female. 
    Wray found himself drawn to the small female he found beaten and abused on the Ganglian ship. She resembled a Tornian female but was much smaller. Could she be what he was searching for? 
    Kim Teel had a hard life, at least she thought she had until her parents died suddenly, and her sister and brother-in-law disappeared. At nineteen, she realized she had been protected from all of life’s hardships. She had been cared for and loved her entire life, and had come to expect it, she was terribly spoiled. Determined to change her ways, Kim went looking for her sister, only to be captured by the Ganglians. It was then she learned what happened to the ‘unprotected’ females of the universe. 
    Wray and Kim are both doing the same thing, trying to survive. What they find is that there are more important things than just survival. Once they learn that, the universe changes forever.
