I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
This is the third book in a series. In the first 2 books, Aoléon and Gilbert met on Earth and she took him to her home on Mars after they were chased by a neighbor of Gilbert’s. On Mars, he learned about the Martians’ way of life. He also learned that there is a resistance movement to investigate the Luminon (the learder) of Mars because the resistance believes he’s planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows.
In this book, Aoléon and Gilbert not only learn that the resistance is right, but they end up in a life-threatening situation. Through teamwork and the assistance of Bizwat, they’re able to escape, but now they’re wanted by the Luminon and they need to save Aoléon’s parents.
This book has a lot more action than the first 2 books in the series. It kept my interest throughout and the pictures are detailed and vibrant.
These are definitely books that middle grade readers will enjoy.
