The Space Defender books are science fiction adventure books for middle grade readers who love science, space, aliens, robots, tech, and smart, brave kids.

“You, you are the one. We have found you. We will destroy you. We will destroy you.”

Carlos Zera has gotten used to a life of pranks and getting kicked out of school. But when a mysterious arrival delivers the unfortunate news that an ancient alien race is speeding across the galaxy to destroy him, Carl finds himself in the middle of a centuries-old war with an alien species bent on humanity's destruction.

Carl and his friends Scarlett and Hector must foil the plot of an evil warlord before he acquires a long-forgotten artifact that may hold the key to the survival of the entire galaxy.

Armed only with their courage and loyalty to one another, they battle their way through a maze of robots, discover new life forms, and make the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of their friends. Along the way Carl is transformed from prankster to reluctant hero and learns that the universe is much bigger, more dangerous, and more wondrous than he ever thought possible.
