Matt Edwards about this book: The original inspiration for this book was a group of boys who refused to read because they claimed there were no books which they could relate too. I wrote a short story which I thought the boys would like. They enjoyed it so much that I continued to tweak and expand it until finally I came up with Armoured.
Armoured is the tale of a 13 year boy named Linus whose life is changed when he finds himself sharing his body with a swarm of tiny sentient robots known as the Xerxes System. It follows his journey as he and his best friend Ray Ray navigate the complex politics of high school and battle the corrupt forces which are trying reclaim his new robotic companions. The story is set against the picturesque backdrop of Australia's North Queensland coast.
Armoured is aimed at early teen readers and is an unsweetened, comic inspired action adventure which pulls no punches. It is sure to engage even the most reluctant of young readers.
