Robots and aliens rampage through the center of Cardiff so often that no one bats an eyelid. That’s what happens to a city when Doctor Who is filmed there. But this time, it wasn’t a Doctor Who shoot. This time the robot running amok was real!
Sci-fi author Tim Bailey feels responsible, and so he should: he accidentally set the robot loose. Aided by his younger brother, can he stop the robot before it causes devastation?
There is one thing Tim is absolutely clear about:
SOME ROBOTS SHOULD BE LEFT WELL ALONE…

I love that this is set firmly in Wales!
I think the author, Colin, would say lots of rude words I wouldn’t understand if I moved it anywhere else. We did change a few phrases that didn’t travel well.
I really enjoyed the romp thru this book…you start out in a classroom with an up-tight teacher telling the author in the book how to make his presentation better and how to write. The next thing you know you have a robot running rapid that thinks it is the robot from the author book and the author is trying to stop it before it kills too many people.
I think this is a great young adult book to even an adult book. It has a strong, fresh story line. The only thing I didn’t like was it ended rather abruptly. I would have liked a little more at the end.
I rate this book high, it has everything you want in a Sci-Fi adventure…robot gone crazy, bad guys, family, romance and a great car chase. What else do you need? A must read from great writer.
It’s a great idea for a book, isn’t it? My son loved it. Glad you enjoyed it too, and thanks for letting us know!
Hope you had a great Christmas.
