When young Code falls down a hole while following a mysterious robotic insect, he lands in a world that defies all imagination. Everything in Mekhos is made from metal and circuitry, including the citizens-who happen to be robots. To find his way home, Code must first cross Mekhos's bizarre and dangerous landscape to reach the Beam Stalk. There, an artifact known as the Robonomicon is being guarded by an evil ruler who has plans to destroy Mekhos. Can Code free the Robonomicon, save the robots of Mekhos from impending doom, and still get himself back to Earth in time to catch the school bus? With its dazzling array of robots and futuristic gadgetry, this rollicking story will hold special appeal for boys and budding sci-fi lovers everywhere.

Afraid to move, Code stared at the colorful light show, vivid in the dark waters. He jumped, startled, when a deep, slow voice came from the speakers inside Code’s helmet: “Attention. Stand down. You are in violation of this wake space. Attention …” The coded light pattern from the armor lights must have been intercepted and

Code peeked his head out of the crack in the rock wall and did not see a road, a school bus, or a thunderstorm. From the instant knot in his stomach, Code knew that he was definitely, without a doubt, utterly and completely lost. Swallowing, he looked up at the twisting, vine-encrusted trees that towered overhead. He had never seen trees like this at Mek Mound before. Peep, a green dot of light, flew a few feet ahead, swooping through the air like a lightning bug on a mission. She was the only

But she was off in a flash. The brightly glowing green speck disappeared into endless ranks of robots, spraying emerald light beams in every direction. Code could do nothing but blink in surprise. Peep was gone. Code looked up at Gary, but the big robot just shook his head sadly. In the moment

He rolled onto his back. The rock melted wherever he touched it. His flickering gray green eyes opened and they stared straight up, unseeing. Code felt the strangest tickling sensation all through his body. He could feel the stone around him being broken down at an atomic level and pulled into his skin. Castle walls, he thought. Peep is using the rock to build castle walls inside me. Immortalis hurled a wicked-looking primary harpoon tentacle toward Code. Before it could connect, Code’s skin
