Review: I have read Gods and Warriors the crocodile tomb and I think it's a good book. I like the adventure and I like the mythical part of it.  I think that if its on the market that many children of my age will buy it.

Robot Overlords
By Mark Stay 
| Publisher: Gollancz

To find his father, one boy must defy an empire...

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. BUY IT ON AMAZON

Review: I have read robot overlords and I think it was a fabulous book and I think there should be more books like that in the market. I also really like the way that it brings in the action of trying to over throw the robots. It's also really cool that Sean can control the robots.

By Elise McCredie 
| Publisher: Egmont

Four teenage boys are hiking in the bush when they are caught in a freak storm. After surviving the night, the boys expect a hero's welcome – but instead they find that nobody knows who they are. BUY IT ON AMAZON 

Review: What I liked in Nowhere boys was all the action and not knowing what was going to happen next. I also liked that a part in the beginning that drew you in and made you keep reading. What I didn't like was the way it swapped from Person to person what made the book confusing sometimes.
