Bot Wars

Book 1, Bot Wars

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 11, 2013 – 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.
