Publisher Comments:

The robots will rise...

Twelve-year-old Aiden (Trout) St. Kroix lives with his older brother Po. Their father disappeared two years ago while fighting in the Bot Wars—a devastating conflict that began when robots became so advanced that they revolted and took the lives of thousands of people. When the government banned and declared all bots terrorists, Trout didnt question a thing. In the end, all he wanted was to find his dad. Desperate, Trout posts a video to the internet seeking help with his search, unwittingly unleashing a storm of danger as his brother is suddenly abducted and he is labeled a terrorist and a criminal himself. Trout goes on the run to seek answers, but it turns out that nothing is what it seems—not the government, not the bots, and not even his own father.

"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.”

Childrens Literature

 

“Science-fiction fans will enjoy the action and subtle exploration of just what it means to be human.”

School Library Journal

Review:

"Kade (a pseudonym for Jennifer Rush, who recently made her YA debut with Altered) offers a fast-paced, futuristic adventure in which one boy risks everything for his family. The Robot Wars left the U.S. in shambles, divided between Bot Territory and the United Districts. Even though the wars ended months ago, 12-year-old Trout St. Kroix is still waiting for his soldier father to come home. When Trout makes one last desperate attempt to bring attention to his father's plight, he discovers the surprising truth about where his father is and what he's been up to. Meanwhile, Trout's older brother has fallen into the hands of the U.D.'s corrupt government, and it's up to Trout to save them both and prevent disaster. Strong characterizations and nifty tech keep Kade's story from succumbing to a relatively predictable 'everything you know is wrong' dystopian plot. Kade's robots tread the fine line between the familiar and the alien, and her world-building shows potential, resulting in an entertaining reading experience. Ages 10 — up.

Synopsis:

The international bestselling series with over 5 million copies sold in the U.S. alone!

Months have passed since Horace departed for the eastern nation of Nihon-Ja on a vital mission. Having received no communication from him, his friends fear the worst. Unwilling to wait a second longer, Alyss, Evanlyn, and Will leave their homeland behind and venture into an exotic land in search of their missing friend.

When they finally catch up with him, they find Horace entangled in a military coup. Determined to protect the imperial throne, Will and his band of Araluens must piece together and train a force in order to fend off the master Senji warriors intent on overthrowing the emperor.

Suspense and pulse-pounding action abound in this final adventure in the worldwide phenomenon that is Ranger's Apprentice.

Perfect for fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, T.H. White’s The Sword in the Stone, Christopher Paolini’s Eragon series, and George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author

John Flanagan grew up in Sydney, Australia hoping to be a writer. It wasn’t until he wrote a highly uncomplimentary poem about a senior executive at the agency he worked, however, that his talent was revealed. It turned out one of the company directors agreed with John’s assessment of the executive, and happily agreed to train John in copywriting.

After writing advertising copy for the next two decades, John teamed with an old friend to develop a television sitcom, Hey Dad!, which went on to air for eight years.

John began writing Ranger’s Apprentice for his son, Michael, ten years ago, and is still hard at work on the series. He currently lives in the suburb of Manly, Australia, with his wife. In addition to their son, they have two grown daughters and four grandsons.
