Review quote

Praise for FUGITIVE X: "good action sequences and an interesting future milieu make this fine pleasure reading." -- Kirkus Reviews Praise for REVOLUTION 19: "An exciting, dystopian page turner...Robot apocalypse done right" -- Kirkus Reviews "A strong start to what looks to be an exciting series." -- Publishers Weekly "Good old-fashioned sci-fi action starring remorseless laser-firing robots and ridiculously brave and selfless teenagers." -- Booklist "Very entertaining, with an action-packed story that suggests a cinematic blockbuster. Readers looking for a lively adventure through a dystopian future that isn't hopelessly bleak may therefore get on board for this revolution and relish its obvious set-ups for a sequel." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Fast paced and entertaining" -- School Library Journal "Satisfyingly executed and comes with plenty of adolescent snark." -- Booklist

Back cover copy

Our greatest enemy might be ourselves.

Since the robot revolution began, humans have been on the run, plotting to take back the cities that were once theirs. Now the time has come to win it all back--or die trying.

After finally reuniting at the rebel camp, siblings Nick, Kevin, and Cass must fight to stay together and free their parents from bot rule. Kevin adapts dangerous technology that might be the key to defeating the robots once and for all, but a single glitch could end his life. To prove his loyalty to the cutthroat rebel leader, Nick must guard Erica, the beautiful traitor, or else pay the price. Cass tries to help city-boy Farryn piece his life back together again, but he's a constant reminder of the family she left behind.

When the teens learn that the rebels plan to destroy both robots and humans in their attack, they fear for the fate of their parents. To the ruthless insurgents, a brainwashed citizen is just as dangerous as a bot, but Nick, Kevin, and Cass are desperate to free their family. How much are the siblings willing to sacrifice to save the world they believe in?
