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.



Part 2 of Aoleon’s story doesn’t fail to delight the reader.  In this installment, Gilbert learns more about living on Mars and not everyone there is a Martian, they have exchange students too.  The food source is an interesting description but doesn’t sound very appetizing.  The imagery tied to the graphics really makes the story pop, I was just disappointed that there was no graphic of the pets.  That would have been interesting to see how the author visualized the animals.

There were times where the story seemed to drag on and I wonder if middle grade age kids would get confused or if some of it would be over their heads.  I am not a scientist so do not know about life outside of our solar system so I do not know how much of the information was correct when discussing space and the planets, but it was very detailed.

The story also covers bullying and shows that it can happen to anyone and anywhere.

Overall I enjoyed the story and wonder how the next chapters will play out for Gilbert and Aoleon.

We give this 4 paws up.
