The Story

Kai Masters, 12, is a border guard charged with keeping Earth safe from the beasts of Beastium.

Kai and his dogbot battle buddy, B.C., must battle hard if they are to defeat the ever-mutating beasts. Every book is a new battle with a new, bigger and better beast plus the high-tech gadgets and vehicles, beast facts and battle stat boys love.

With the help of carefully planned pages, our youngest-reading boys develop their reading skills while losing themselves in a story packed with action.
