Although my 11 year old son LOVED the series, we were bummed to learn that it was just a republished Mars Diaries book 1 & 2 together with a different title. We thought it was a continuation of stories started in Mars DIaries.... bummer! But Mars Diaries, now called Robot Wars, was a very exciting series that my son really enjoyed! Just don't be fooled, they are the same stories...This is book One of the Robot Wars series.
Here is the back cover -
Life in an experimental community on Mars is filled with adventure, new discoveries, and questions. As 14-year-old Virtual-Reality Specialist, Tyce Sanders, searches for truth, he battles forces of evil - all while struggling to believe in God.
In Book one, the science station where Tyce, his mom, scientists, and other techies live is running out of oxygen. Tyce races against time an other forces to save himself and others. And as if that's not enought to battle, Tyce discovers evidence that points to other living creatures. Could dangerous aliens live on Mars?
