Product Description

Everything thinks they know what happens in Area 51. Frankie Swift knows. He and his father live on the base. While his father works long hours, Frankie lets his imagination run wild. In a place where everyone looks out for everyone else, he quickly becomes the base's child. Everyone looks out for him, and everyone enjoys letting him dream up a new and fantastic adventure. Frankie was perfectly happy to explore the desert or create a new invention his his garage, until he blew the fuses. In a search for a portable generator, he stumbled upon an old building that was marked restricted. It bore the name Archangel, an old project from way back. However, what Frankie found inside wasn't an old plane. What he found were the remains of something that had happened back in the New Mexico desert when his grandfather was still a young man. What he found was a massive robot, designed by someone beyond, bult by American hands. The robot had been shelved after the military couldn't gain access to it. With a signle touch, Young Frankie Swift found himself sitting in the heart of the robot. A message from his grandfather explained everything. Save the planet. Someone is coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good SciFi Story for YA 4 May 2014
By Dr.Gonzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having found this story under science fiction (not YA) I did not realize this book was targeted at a younger audience (although I suppose the nicely designed cover should have given me a hint.) Despite a few things that had me rolling my eyes, as an adult I found the story to be entertaining and I suspect boys age 10 to 14 would really love this. It has a young man as the protagonist and he gets to fight aliens in a giant robotic suit! What kid wouldn't enjoy reading about that?

As mentioned there were a few "eye roll" moments:
- The fact that the most secret technology in the world is kept in a dusty warehouse without any guards is astounding.
- The fact that the boy's grandpa set up the robot to accept the boys dna, then just left the robot in a restricted warehouse in the hope that the boy would stumble upon it. He sure was counting on a mighty big coincidence working out.
- The military letting a young boy pilot a giant robot really stained my ability to suspend disbelief (even if it was crucial to the story)
- Military officers going agaisnt their orders in order to allow the boy to continue to pilot the robot seemed out of character.

These plot elements, combined with dialogue that I consider to be on the simple side, make this a great read for a younger reader. It doesn't contain any swearing, sex or even real violence. Only robot on robot violence.

Recommended for younger readers. Some adults may also enjoy the story if willing to look past the YA tone of the writing.
