In a breathless race against time, experience the decisive battle for humankind, one that will decide whether Earth belongs to humanity, or to a powerful alien race...
"The third book in Vijaya Schartz’s Ancient Enemy series begins with a bang and keeps the fireworks coming.

Can they override their programming in time to save the human race?" ~ Sensual Reads - 4.5 stars – Sultry
"... Bennett. Sexy, balls to the walls Bennett. Ladies man, his own military militia and a devilish sense of humor. ...A sensational and fantastical alternate universe was painted and laid out for me with every wondrous word. I really enjoyed being taken away into the lives of the characters as they wove their way through imminent death, every lie and betrayal, every scary new path they took on their journey to get to the truth and save the world as they knew it." ~ Book Junkie - 4 stars
"I really enjoyed this book. Even though I hadn't read the previous two... I have always been interested in the mysterious disappearance of the Anasazi and this story nicely filled in the blanks... exceptionally well written. I am definitely going to have to find the previous books and check them out as well." ~ The Romance Studio - 5 hearts - rated very sensual
"Kicking Bots is the latest in the Ancient Enemy series from the prolific author, Vijaya Schartz. I loved how smart Melissa is, and that she understands when she is in dangerous situations... This sci-fi has interesting plots and subplots and while it would have been helpful to have read the first two books in the series first, it was not required. The connection between the sisters was very fast, but moved the story quickly into an unexpected path... The relationship between Melissa and Bennett, along with the other supporting characters, built in a logical time frame. The dialogue was good..." ~ Coffee Time Romance
