Roll up, roll up!
While trying to stop a cyber-attacker stealing all Space Team’s hard-earned money, the cyborg, Mech, unlocks a secret partition in his hard drive, revealing a mysterious set of co-ordinates.
The co-ordinates lead to Funworld, a planet-sized theme park with a worrying number of artificially intelligent clownbots, and a shocking disregard for Health & Safety.
With no weapons, and a shapeshifter who can no longer shift shape, Space Team’s quest to unlock Funworld’s mysteries leads them deep into the planet’s core – and to the horrors that inhabit it – where they uncover the shocking secret Mech had no idea he was keeping.
“I love this series. I’m about to start the third book. If to like to laugh out loud when you read and driving your friends crazy explaining why, you’ll love it. Seriously, this book it Hilario.”David Stegall
