Start your review of The Meta-Rise (Bot Wars, #2)
This was a really good follow-on from Bot Wars and a book that I really enjoyed. Perfect for children 10+, this book has it all: humour, action, suspense, robots, future-settings and family and friendships. The relationships Trout has with everyone around him are really positive, from his family (though they really have to stop lying to him!), to his friends Vee, Tellie, Lox and even robots LT and Scissors. I really like all of the characters, and the plot itself was really engaging and well ...more

And one of those people is Trout’s friend Tellie’s dad. ...more

The bots are back! And as awesome as ever. So is Trout St. Kroix and the rest of the humans (who are pretty awesome themselves) as they face a new enemy that threatens to destroy life in Bot Territory.

Loaded with as much danger, humor, suspense and inventions as Bot Wars, The Meta-Rise is an action-packed sequel that doesn't disappoint. I adore Trout and Po, Tellie and Vee, and the rest of their family and friends, but it's the bots that steal the show again. LT with his loyalty and

I am not the age group that this book was written for, but my son loves the first Bot Wars book, and since I had read it and liked it well enough I decided to read this sequel. It didn't grip me as much as the first and the story had some things that annoyed me in it. My son and I agreed that Tellie was not a character that we liked and we would have preferred it if Vee could have been in the story all the way through, as well as Lox. So the ending left me a little unsatisfied, but I'm glad that ...more
