"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."

"I started this book by Randall James “Jace Power and the Battle of Mars City”. I have never read a Sci Fi book before. Started the book and couldn’t put it down. I finished it in one sitting. Excellent read."
