Robot Overlords

Robot Overlords

Narrated by Rupert Degas, and with behind-the-scenes diaries narrated by the author and screenwriter Mark Stay. This audiobook also features exclusive sound-effects from the film and the short story THE MEDIATOR PROTOTYPE.

To find his father, one boy must defy an empire…

Three years ago, Earth was conquered by a force of robots from a distant world. They have one rule:

STAY IN YOUR HOMES

Step outside and you get one warning before you’re vaporised by a massive robot Sentry, or a crawling Sniper, or a flying Drone. That’s if the vast Cube doesn’t incinerate you first.

But Sean Flynn is convinced that his father – an RAF pilot who fought in the war – is still alive. And when he and his gang figure out a way to break the robots’ curfew, they begin an adventure that will pit them against the might of the ROBOT OVERLORDS.

This fast-paced, thrilling novelisation is based on the hit British film starring Sir Ben Kingsley (IRON MAN THREE), Gillian Anderson (THE X-FILES) and Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY). A perfect companion to the movie, it expands on the story with additional action, characters, and a special peek behind the scenes.

Reviews

fun, entertaining read with snappy, realistic dialogue.... a blockbuster pace that will entertain early teens upwards and sci-fi fans alike
Following the Nerd
Robot Overlords is an easy read, but it's not a light tale. Deliciously scary in all the right places, it's a compelling book. Like all good novelisations, it adds an extra dimension to a story already told in another medium. Recommended, especially if you like giant robot-driven dystopias.
Starburst
Enjoyable, entertaining, and sometimes surprisingly dark, Robot Overlords is a great read whether you're a young adult, a young-at-heart adult, or even a miserable old man in an adult's body (like me!)
The Cult Den
Such a cracking story - one which might literally blow your socks off
The Book Plank
His characters come to life instantly, practically jumping off the page, all you need to know to care about them sketched in a few simple but always well-chosen words
