Aoleon and Gilbert have become the Luminon’s top priority in stopping the Martian resistance movement, and after being chased by the Royal Paladin Guard, they are forced to flee the Martian Megalopolis. Aoléon, Gilbert and Zoot escape with the help of Bizwat and his newly found friend, Helios, a first generation soldierbot.
After their saucer is destroyed, they crash land somewhere in the deep Martian desert, and they set out to locate Kyrios and the secret base where Aoleon’s parents are being held captive.
After battling the forces of nature, starvation, a Klyklon dust storm, (and not to mention a giant slor that almost swallows them alive), they finally make it to their destination. However, after Kyrios gives Gilbert some basic training to develop his budding psionic power, they learn that their journey is far from over.
Will Aoléon, Gilbert, Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot be able to rescue Aoleon’s parents and stop the Martian invasion of Earth in time?
This is the fourth book I have read from this author in his Aoleon series. You can read my first three reviews HERE, HERE, and HERE. The book starts off in a bit of political commentary which took me by surprise considering that this is a series for middle grade children. However, it continued on right where it left off from book three after that.
The martian contingent is getting ready to strike while the U.S. contingent is getting ready to pre-strike, doesn't that sound about right? In the middle of it all are the people. That figures too.
I found it humorous when the cows were extracted from Earth and how. This of course not giving away a part of the book as it is right on the cover.
I did find this particular book to drag a few chapters until it got closer to the end with a bit of excitement interspersed. I felt also the book was left a cliff hanger of sorts.
Over all, not bad but certainly not my favorite of the books thus far. I do look forward to finding out the conclusion. 4 stars.
