Set on the artificial planet Edelon. The plot follows Isaaq, an android in a world overrun by machines, who finds a module carrying a male infant. He decides to protect and raise him, even if it means going against robots of his own kind.
Much later, when the Serpiods—an enemy race of draconians from faraway stars—discover Edelon, they plan to enslave the robot inhabitants and mine the precious metals contained within the planet.
Then Isaaq realizes that male infant crash hadn't happened by accident.
Isaaq must now utilize an unusual appearance and origin of a male infant, gathering a mechanized army of robots for the upcoming war. But the Serpiods don't want him to succeed. They want his death.
