Book Description

Save money by getting "The Alien Files" bundle!

"Nanoagents: Induction" is also available in the NANOAGENTS: THE ALIEN FILES BUNDLE. Just look for it on Amazon!


Seth Brennan is a typical, run-of-the-mill kid genius who is leading the school’s computer club into the upcoming science fair.

Seth gets an email from Xabigan Industries while working on ideas for a project. The email promises a new piece of technology that will revolutionize the way people use the Internet. And it includes free shipping!

The problem is that a lot of computer-savvy kids have gone missing over the last few months, so Seth wants to be careful with this new piece of tech. Unfortunately, his friend and next-door neighbor, Chen, also got the email from Xabigan Industries and he’s never careful with anything.

When Seth gets home from school that night he learns that Chen has disappeared!

Could Xabigan Industries be behind these disappearances? Could this new technology have some sinister application that nobody knows about?

Seth has to connect the tech, outwit a couple of robots, foil the plans of a malevolent alien, and try to save Chen before it's too late!

This is a great adventure story and thrilling from start to finish. I found myself reading the whole book in one session, once you start reading you won't want to put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Best Book Ever" (unprompted quote from Grade Two student!) 14 Nov. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
"Best Book Ever"
Okay, that's an unprompted opinion from my 7 year old who just zipped through Nanoagents. She loved the characters and the storyline and she immediately asked if there were more books in the series. Definitely a hit at our house!

As a disclaimer, I won the book through a Goodreads Giveaway by the author but it isn't biasing my review and my daughter certainly didn't know where the book came from!

I read the first chapter and skimmed the book before giving it to her. I liked the writing style, the diverse characters and the way it made computer science cool. ;) I particularly liked how Seth thought things through and Xabigan was an excellent villain.

I would highly recommend this for a young reader with an interest in adventure stories and/or computers.
5.0 out of 5 stars So Good 6 Nov. 2013
By Mindy S. - Published on
his is a very good story. It is a quick read (95 pages), and I highly recommend checking this book out.
The first couple of chapters are about getting to know the protagonist Seth Brennan, and his friends (future team). The story leading to the climax is very well done, and believable. I love that the antagonist in the story is an alien, and that he is a legitimate baddie. Seth is a clever, smart, and tough boy who is able to resolve the situation in a very cool way- you find out why the book is called nanoagents induction.
5.0 out of 5 stars Like a tractor beam - sucked me right in! 1 Oct. 2013

I sat down last night, thinking it would be a good time to read Nanoagents, and ended up finishing the book 45 min later. Granted, as a parent I'm not the target audience, but I actually found it quite entertaining and look forward to passing it on to my 8 yr old son to see if he likes it. I think it's a good book for his age, and really any kid who likes sci-fi or computers / technology. It's a fun adventure and apparently the first in a series. The character development really focused on the hero, Seth, but I look forward to getting to know the rest of the "nanoagents" in the following books.
5.0 out of 5 stars fun, exciting, and quick read! 27 Sept. 2013

This was so much fun to read. I kept thinking my daughter (age11) and my son (age 13) are going to love this! As I got to the end, I thought, "No! Don't be over!" I'm so glad this is going to be a series. I'm already addicted.

My girls read through very quickly as they wanted to see what was going to happen next. They are now both hooked on the Nanoagents series and look forward to the next release.
