Takedown

Written by Graham Marks

Key Stage 3

LoveReading View on Takedown

One teenage boy, seven days to change the world.  A terrific story of intrigue and time travel written in short, sharp chapters each of which are roller-coaster rides of suspense and adrenalin pumping action.  Dachron Amok has had half his mind hijacked by 16 year old Steve Anthony, a man from the future. Dachron has been selected for his talents in unarmed combat and anti-terrorist tactics to save the world from obliteration.  It’s the year 2667 and back in 2007 an inventor created a brilliant system to supply the world with power, but now it’s become apparent his equations were wrong.  Dachron in Steve’s body must go back in time and correct the inventor’s mistake.  Perfect for reluctant readers or indeed anyone wanting a real blast of action.
