"Jace Power and the Battle of Mars City was such a fun read. So what did I like about this book? I liked the characters, and I liked the futuristic things that were happening in the year 2137, the fun adventures and the new people that Jace got to meet on the way. I also love sci-fi, soooo… I really liked reading what the author imagined."

"This fast-paced novel for young readers

takes place in Sydney (Cape Breton) a century from now.

Our hero, Jace Power, starts off worrying about his dad

embarrassing him at career day (he hauls trash to the Moon) but

his blistering adventure brings him through a war and face to screen

with the android king who has taken over Mars.

It's like reading a video game. So. Much. Fun."
