I borrowed The Death Ray: A Dax Hunter Adventure in The 3020 AD by Sai Daksh from the Kindle Unlimited library.
The Galaxy has been run over by a new race of beings- The Brairians. They look like Humans, move like Humans and speak like Humans, but are not Humans. Dax Hunter is a Brairian. He lives on Mars with his crazy family and his arch nemesis- his twin brother Drake. But on their birthday, the duo have to evacuate Mars do to the threat to their family from terrorists! Where do they go? To the radioactive wasteland- Earth, where the only form of life are Brairian Scientists and Engineers. The duo make new friends on Earth. Then, the four Brairian teenagers and a robot find themselves caught up in a mad scientist’s masterplan! Their journey is filled with adventure, surprises, action and the truth about the Brairians, the Humans and another secret race of beings. And oh! Time Travel is involved! Will they be able to stop the mad scientist who wants to incinerate an entire planet with his Death Ray? Anyway, this is just one of three parts of their mission to ensure Galactic peace again.
Set in 3020, about a thousand years from now, this story revolves around Dax, an almost fourteen year old robot designer, his family, their robots and his friends. This family lives on the Mars and they are not humans but Brairians. The Earth has been destroyed by the third world war, and is no longer inhabited. What exists of the Earth are the north and south poles. And on one of them, these Brairians are doing some research.
And once they reach the earth, there are terrorists and a mad scientist. And Dax and friends are asked to become undercover agents as a part of the Galactic Council to stop Earth from Extinction and also to stop the mad scientist from using the death ray.
The story has been written in first person from Dax’s point of view. I loved the adventures and the time travel. There are a lot of holos, holobrary, holosabers, holopapers, hologram, holobook, holo-computers, holoscreen, and holocover- you have to read the book to know what means what. The story is fast paced and the editing has been done well. An excellent work for a fourteen year old.
This is the first book of the series and the author promises many more.
