About the book

Set at an experimental community on Mars in the year 2039-2040, Robot Wars features 14-year-old virtual reality specialist Tyce Sanders. Life on the Red Planet is not always easy, but it is definitely exciting. As Tyce explores his strange surroundings, he finds that the mysteries of the planet point to his greatest discovery—a new relationship with God. He talks about his growing faith and curiosity in a manner that kids can relate to as they are probably wondering some of the same things.
In book three, Ambush, Tyce has to rescue his friend Director Rawlings and three other scientists who are trapped in a cave-in on Mars. He also has to uncover a devious plot that threatens to overtake the spaceship—just as they are nearing the end of their six-month journey from Mars to Earth.

My Thoughts

This is the third book of the series Robot Wars.  In this book, you will reconnect with Tyce and his family as well as other characters living on the Mars colony.  

Once again, the book is divided in two journal entries and though it could stand alone as a book to read, I find that it follows the events of the previous two books.   The first part of the book tells the events of a cave-in where scientists are trapped under.   Tyce doesn’t have lots of time to help them out of their predicament.  However, event at the colony itself makes it difficult for him to be able to save them immediately.  Will he be able to reach to them before they don’t have enough air? 

In the second part of the book, Tyce embarks on a eight-month journey toward Earth – a place he has never went before.   All his life he lived on Mars – born and raised there.   But the circumstances has made this trip a necessity and even on the ship he will have to discover who is sabotaging the journey.

I find that as I advance in the books, the mystery and the suspense gets more interesting.   The second part of the book flew right under my eyes as I got totally hooked with the story.    I suspect that the two last book of the series will be even better.  

This series is absolutely fabulous for a young man or woman who likes science fiction.   It has some suspense and mystery as I have mentioned and the main character journal about the adventures as well.  If you child is looking for a great series to read this summer, I would highly recommend the Robot Wars series.
