Metallic Love is a sequel to The Silver Metal Lover, one of Lee's most beloved science fiction/fantasy . This book is a companion to Tanith Lee's Silver Metal Lover, and I serendipitously ended up reading this book first.

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.

Taken on its own terms, Metallic Love is not a bad book. The second book in the S.I.L.V.E.R. series, Metallic Love is a well-executed vision of a dystopian future and a society where rebellion is brewing, as a result of the events of the first book. Tanith Lee is a brilliant writer, and many of her books have been favorites of mine for decades.

Which, paradoxically, is the problem, here. Metallic Love is a sequel to The Silver Metal Lover, one of Lee's most beloved science fiction/fantasy novels, and certainly one of my favorite of her books. The first book, published in 1981, recounts the star-crossed love story of sixteen-year-old Jane, the emotionally abused daughter of a wealthy, negligent mother and Silver, the robot musician with whom Jane falls in love. Jane's love gradually humanizes Silver, and though he is destroyed at the end of the book, the reader is given reason to believe that his soul has survived, and that he and Jane can look forward to a reunion in some distant future afterlife or reincarnation. Or both.

Then, twenty-four years later, Metallic Love comes along and gives us a rebooted Silver, now known as Verlis, who has no connection to Jane, but takes up with the narrative of the second book, Loren. Honestly, if you loved the love story of Jane and Silver, this can't be anything but a kick in the gut. And, if you've been a fan of the first book since its initial publication over thirty years ago, your disappointment is going to be that much greater. That is why I wish I'd never read Metallic Love. Not because it is, in and of itself a bad book. It isn't. I wish I'd never read it because I was happy with the bittersweet, hopeful ending of The Silver Metal Lover and Metallic Love seems to negate that.

Lee has said there may be a third book, which will take up the story of Jane and Silver. As long as the third novel doesn't trash their relationship the way this one, did, I definitely want to read that. I could happily accept Silver and Verlis as distinct entities so long as Silver's love and devotion to Jane remains intact. I just hope I don't have to wait another twenty-four years to find out.

This book is a companion to Tanith Lee's Silver Metal Lover, and I serendipitously ended up reading this book first. There is enough exposition from the narrator (I loved her) that you don't really need to read the first "installment". Without spoiling much, it is what the cover says. It's about Metallic Love. Our narrator doesn't have too much trouble falling in love with Verlis (our truly lovable robotic protagonist/lover) but she does have difficulty around the circumstances of his "birth". It was a really great, absorbing read and I devoured it. The little "twists" at the end really gave me chills and I loved every moment of this book. Would recommend for lovers of romance (not seedy, but very enjoyable) and scifi (the descriptions of the capabilities of technology were both fantastic and convincing) alike.

Yes, I know Tanith Lee is super-famous and has won all sorts of fancy literature awards, but I'm still not afraid to say that this story has serious flaws.
I suppose the intent is entirely for romance, but the irresponsible behavior of the humans is extremely difficult to accept.
As foolish as it was in the first place to ever create such superpowered, indestructible robots in the first place, with all these incredibly dangerous abilities - no one even tried to reign them in. They knew the robots were killers, and they just covered it up and let them skate away scott-free. Any sane human being would sooner spritz the city with aerosolized Ebola than let these killing machines ever escape the lab.
I just can't accept that any professional organization would be so irresponsible as to allow the major events in this story to progress. Oh, and the proofreading was NOT perfect, despite the book's lofty origin and authorship.

For any reader who absolutely loved The Silver Metal Lover with its dystopian future world, interspecies (human and robot) love story and wanted more, Metallic Love may not be what you're looking for. Sadly, Ms. Lee appears to have set out to deliberately tear down her previous novel and replace it with a very poor substitute here that just doesn't work like the original did and is actually a disservice to readers of TMSL. While I can see the type of story Ms. Lee attempted to write here (and revealing that, unfortunately, would be a major spoiler that I'm not going to give away) it simply doesn't follow well from her previous work. Sequels often feel the need to outdo the original in the belief that they must be more intense in order to create the same effect as the original since the readers are now immunized by the original story and need more for the same effect. But when the original is perfectly balanced, such a sequel becomes very badly out of balance. TSML lovers will probably read this book anyway with high hopes, and if Metallic Love is read as standalone with no knowledge of the prior story it would rank higher than this dismal rating. But Metallic Love is what it is, and what it is has failed for me.
