Very cool episode in the Mars Diaries series. There's more interplanetary intrigue in store for Tyce Sanders, a 14-year-old living in a Mars colony. After a "marsquake" takes place and shakes things up, strange black boxes appear on the surface of the dusty terrain. Field trip time for Tyce, his virtual reality robot, his mentor Rawling, and his dad. And it turns into a pretty scary field trip, I might add.

Recommended best for Christian tweens, teens (and yeah, even adults).

The first two books in the series, though, were a lot more about using religion to build a meaningful life and to inform morality. I am fine with that. This book had sections that were a lot more about " ...more

It's a kid book like the rest in the series. My grandsons like them, and Brouwer writes with a clever twist here and there.
