Overview

Bot Wars by J.V. Kade

Twelve-year-old Trout St. Kroix has been searching for his missing father for the last two years, after his dad disappeared while fighting in the Bot Wars. The Bot Wars began after robots became so advanced that they revolted and demanded more workers' rights, causing the government to declare all robots terrorists and ban them from the Districts. Trout never questioned anything the government told him—even when his own nanny bot was banished—until a vid he posts about his missing dad goes viral and new information pops up. At first Trout is wrenched his dad might be alive, but when his brother disappears, Trout learns nothing is what it seems . . . not even his own father.

Percy Jackson meets Transformers in this heart-stopping, futuristic adventure that will make you question everything you know—and look at robots in a whole new light.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Strong characterizations and nifty tech.... Kade's robots tread the fine line between the familiar and the alien... resulting in an entertaining reading experience."
Publishers Weekly
 
Science fiction is an exciting genre to explore and this story is an excellent example. It has mystery, romance, complicated family relationships, and ethical themes to consider. Teen readers will appreciate the believable story as well as the fast paced action. Looking at the frightening cover of the book is enough for most readers to dive right into the story. They will not be disappointed.”
Children’s Literature
 
“Science-fiction fans will enjoy the action and subtle exploration of just what it means to be human.”
School Library Journal

This book was awesome! If you know me at all, you know that that means a lot. Pretty much all I read are books that have lots of romance in them. So, for me to LOVE a book about robots, with almost no romance, you know the book has to be really good.  The plot was very fast paced, and I never wanted to put this book down. There was never a spot in the book where I got bored, or felt like I had to make myself keep reading. I think a big part of that was the fact that it took place in the future. It was kind of like the world in Cinder where everything is just more advanced. That was cool and very intriguing. I loved how the author incorporated robots into this world. Instead of saying things like "that's so cool!!" they would say "that's wrenched!" Just little things like the different words they used, made the story seem even more real. I was completely drawn into this world and loved every minute of it.  I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
