Synopsis

Robots and Empire is the fourth and last novel about robots from the legendary sci-fi author Issac Asimov and is centred around the decline and fall of Solaria.

Gladia Delmarre's homeworld, the Spacer planet Solaria, has been abandoned - by its human population. Countless robots remain there. And when traders from Settler worlds attempt to salvage them, the robots of Solaria turn to killing . . . in defiance of the Three Laws of Robotics.

Pax Robotica - Long ago, Gladia's robots Daneel and Giskard played a vital role in opening the worlds beyond the solar system to settlers from Earth.

Now the conscience-stricken robots are faced with an even greater challenge. Either the sacred Three Laws of Robotics are in ruins - or a new, superior Law must be established to bring peace to the galaxy.

With Madam Gladia and D.G. Baley - the captain of the Settler traders and a descendant of the robots' friend Elijah Baley - Daneel and Giskard travel to the robot stronghold of Solaria . . . where they uncover a sinister Spacer plot to destroy Earth itself.
