Description

Three years ago, Earth was conquered by a force of robots from a distant world. They have one rule:

STAY IN YOUR HOMES

Step outside and you get one warning before you're vaporised by a massive robot Sentry, or a crawling Sniper, or a flying Drone. That's if the vast Cube doesn't incinerate you first.

But Sean Flynn is convinced that his father - an RAF pilot who fought in the war - is still alive. And when he and his gang figure out a way to break the robots' curfew, they begin an adventure that will pit them against the might of the ROBOT OVERLORDS.

This fast-paced, thrilling novelisation is based on the hit British film starring Sir Ben Kingsley (IRON MAN THREE), Gillian Anderson (THE X-FILES) and Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY). A perfect companion to the movie, it expands on the story with additional action, characters, and a special peek behind the scenes.

Review quote

The Robot Overlords novel by Mark Stay is more fun than a mongoose rave * David Barnett, author of the Gideon Smith novels * His characters come to life instantly, practically jumping off the page, all you need to know to care about them sketched in a few simple but always well-chosen words * Crime Review * Such a cracking story - one which might literally blow your socks off * The Book Plank * Enjoyable, entertaining, and sometimes surprisingly dark, Robot Overlords is a great read whether you're a young adult, a young-at-heart adult, or even a miserable old man in an adult's body (like me!) * The Cult Den * Robot Overlords is an easy read, but it's not a light tale. Deliciously scary in all the right places, it's a compelling book. Like all good novelisations, it adds an extra dimension to a story already told in another medium. Recommended, especially if you like giant robot-driven dystopias. * Starburst * fun, entertaining read with snappy, realistic dialogue.... a blockbuster pace that will entertain early teens upwards and sci-fi fans alike * Following the Nerd *
