Product Description

Fourteen-year-old Tyce Sanders definitely has an exciting life! He's a virtual reality specialist living in an experimental community on the planet Mars. Life may not always be easy in the year 2039, but there are always new things to explore. Tyce finds that the mysteries of his strange surroundings lead him to his greatest discovery--a new relationship with God. As he grows in his faith, he shares his experiences with honesty and openness.

The Robot Wars series is an updated version of the Mars Diaries series, and each book has two exciting adventures. In the first adventure, the Mars project is in trouble and only Tyce holds the key. In the second adventure, Tyce has discovered there may be killer aliens on the loose. Though he does not believe aliens exist, his discoveries may force him to rethink this view. Recommended for ages 10 to 14.

    This review was written for Robot Wars: Death Trap, Book One.
    This was the first science fiction book that I read and I really enjoyed it. Tyce is the first child born on the Mars colony and he is writing journals while there so that others can hear about his experiences in case something happens to him and the rest of the colony. He is paralyzed from the waist down and since everyone on the Mars colony has to have a purpose his is to control a robot on Mars.

    I read this book in an effort to find something cool for my son to read when he's a little older. He's currently 7 and, while this would be a bit over his head, he's going to love this series in a couple years! The book gripped me from the start, as the story was being told from a robot's point of view. It was a great way to hook the reader! As the story slowly unfolded, the main character was an incredibly likable kid... flaws and all. I don't want to give away too much of the story, but if you've got a preteen son, I'm sure he'd enjoy this series! I have to say, I've seen some boys series that are just not cool enough (too sissified, to be precise)--we need more all-out boyish stuff like this!

    Tyce lives with his mother on Mars in the year 2039, where he gets to move a robot using virtual reality. He has to solve mysteries and learn about faith.

    I thought this was a good story about an experimental colony on Mars. It is divided into two journals (which were previously published separately) and is an interesting look at possible life on Mars.

    This review was written for Robot Wars: Death Trap, Book One.
    Death Trap was an exciting Science Fiction read that is sure to captivate teen readers. The story takes place during 2039 on Mars in an experimental colony. The main character is a 14 year old boy named Tyce Sanders who happens to be the first child born on the planet and uses a wheelchair. Like all teens, Tyce goes through hardships and has many questions, especially about his mothers faith in God. In this book, there are two separate stories that I found were entertaining enough to keep an adult reading, but I think this book would be well received by teen boys the most. It offers adventure, plot twisters, danger, and answers to some of the questions that teens wonder about especially about faith

    In Robot Wars, Book #1: Death Trap, we are introduced to 14 year old Tyce, the first - and so far only - kid to be born and to live in an experimental community on Mars in 2039. Due to a spinal injury that happened when he was a baby, Tyce is disabled (his legs are crippled) and he uses a wheelchair. He longs to go outside the dome that they live in on mars and actually see what the real Mars is like rather than seeing it through a virtual reality program, but he can't due to having to use his wheelchair which would sink in the sand on Mars. At the beginning of the series Tyce is not a Christian. His mom is a Christian and tells Tyce about God and trys to convince him to put his faith in God, but Tyce only believes in science and what he can see and measure.

    Death Trap is split up into two journals. The two journals were originally published as books one and two in the Mars Diaries series.

    In the first journal, the community on Mars is faced with an oxygen crisis where they are running out of oxygen and must figure out what to do. If they don't find a way to fix the problem quickly, they could all die. During this crisis, a long kept secret is revealed to Tyce and he must make a tough decicision of his own.

    In the second journal, a scientist working in an experimental greenhouse is attacked by some unknown creatures. There aren't supposed to be any living creatures on Mars, so what are these creatures and where did they come from? Could they be aliens? That is what Tyce wants to find out.

    I used to see the original versions of these books (when they were published as the Mars Diaries series) a lot at my local bookstores and thrift stores and for some reason was never interested in them. Apparently I thought they were about a totally different plot or of a different genre than what they actually are. I wish I had given them a chance and read one of the books sooner as I did enjoy reading the first book in the Robot Wars series and probably would have liked it even more when I was younger. The book was interesting and had several twists in the plots. The first journal had some very emotional parts in it. I liked the pace of the book and I wanted to keep reading to find out what was going to happen. I really did like the book and I would now like to read the rest of the series to find out what happens to Tyce in his other Mars adventures.

    I think this book is a good book for the ages it is intended for, and some adults (like me) will enjoy it as well, although a lot of adults will probably find it too simplistic. I like that this series can be read by both boys and girls. It seems there are an abundance of books published by Christian publishers for girls, but not many for boys. I definitely think this would be a great series for boys to read, especially if they are interested in space, science fiction, and robots.

    One thing I do not like so far about this series is the newer "Robot Wars" title. I think it can be misleading as there is no actual robot war in this book (and although I haven't read the other books in this series, I don't think there is one in them either). I thought the Mars Diaries title for the series was a better choice that wouldn't lead to confusion about what this book is about.
