An exciting new series for 7+ boys about giant machines that fight like gladiators.
Tommy ‘Titch’ Darwin enrolls at Marshall Johnson’s Battle Academy. Training is tough, but Titch is determined to become a battle champion and follow in his father’s footsteps. As battle lessons commence, Titch and his fellow students are unaware that baddie Wyatt Thorne is watching. He has two grudges—against Marshal Johnson and Titch (whose father defeated Wyatt on his first attempt to become a mech champion). Can Titch save the Academy from Wyatt and make the grade? Or will he fail at his first attempt to become a mech fighter on the championship trail?
