Book Description:

Aoléon and Gilbert receive a special mission from PAX, a wanted criminal and leader of the Martian resistance movement to investigate the Luminon of Mars, who he suspects is planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows. Gilbert has an encounter with the Luminess (the mate of the Luminon) and discovers something strange about her during a procession, and the duo are chased by the Royal Paladin Guard.

At Aoléon’s home, Gilbert meets Aoléon’s family, her sister Una, mother Phobos and father Deimos as well as her overzealous pet Zoot. He is also introduced to Bizwat, a covert operator and Procyon Commando, who uses his Saturn Pizza delivery job as a cover.

Gilbert then gets to visit the Martian Space Academy (Aoléon’s school) where he encounters Aoléon’s nemesis, Charm Lepton and her friend Quarkina, as well as receiving a history lesson on the Martian people by Plutarch Xenocrates. After class, Gilbert and Aoléon get to train in zero-G and Gilbert is treated to a Psi-ball match between Martian Space Academy and Martian Science Academy

What did we think of the book?

In the second Part of the series of books, we follow Gilbert as he spends sometime on Mars with Aoleon. They go to school and it could almost be a school your children go to, but just on another planet. There are the same type of kids there and I feel any child reading this book would associate with the alien children. I read the first part to my daughter who is nearly 5, but I feel this is for an older child as I dont think she would understand it. This book is aimed at Mid-Grade kids and they will love it. I really liked that there were so many similarities with the planets of Mars and Earth, but also equally liked the parts about the Martians having conversations Telepathically. 

 The book is descriptive and once again Brent Le Vesseur doesn't fail with his illustrations, I think they are more intense than the first book and have such fine details so you can really get a feel of being there with Aoleon and Gilbert. The illustrations are bright and really bring the story to life. I cant wait to read Part 3 to see what adventures Aoleon and Gilbert are going to get up to next.
