It started as an ordinary school field trip. The bus pulled up; the kids got off. Their teacher told them where to explore and what to look out for. But when Code Lightfall spots what appears to be a tiny metallic bee, his world will never be the same again...?iterally. This "bee" leads Code from his world into Mekhos-the land of robots. And with bizarre robotic creatures around every turn-from infinipedes with razor-sharp mandibles to giant slaughterbots to tiny nanoscopic creatures that dissolve everything in their path-Mekhos is as dangerous as it is fantastical. It soon becomes clear that the only way for Code to get home is to embark on a daring rescue mission: find the object known as the Robonomicon before it falls into the hands of an evil ruler. With new friends by his side, Code will journey from one end of Mekhos to the other in his quest to save himself-and all the robots-from impending doom. But as incredible as the adventure is, the biggest surprise is yet to come, when Code finds himself face-to-face with the last person he ever thought he'd see again...?

"Shy, unpopular Code is miserable when his grandfather disappears. His life goes from bad to bizarre when, on a school field trip, he trips over a hole and winds up in Mek Mound--once an ancient Okalahoman pyramid, now a land of metallic robots that threaten Earth. David Ackroyd's narration is solid and precise. He gives a human sound to a myriad of robot personalities--a windy-voiced curmudgeon of an inventor, Code's chatty robot buddy, and their threatening nemesis, Immortalis. Ackroyd delivers Code's fears and hopes, as well as moments of humor, as he searches for a way to free his grandfather and vanquish the mechanical villains. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
