Aoléon, Gilbert, Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot make it to their final destination – Cydonia where Aoléon’s parents are being held captive. They infiltrate a secret underground base and are confronted by a small army of sentrybots. Bizwat lends Aoléon and Gilbert some of his advanced combat skills via a psionic brain dump. However, this may not be enough to save them from overwhelming hostile forces that will do anything to stop them. They finally meet Pax – the Martian who originally set them out on the mission to discover the truth about the Luminon and his plans to invade Earth. However Pax is not who he seems to be, and through a turn of events, they uncover the true power behind all that has been happening on Mars.
Will they be able to rescue Aoléon’s parents and save Earth from invasion?
Read part 5 to find out!
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
This is the fifth book in a series. I wouldn’t recommend reading this book before reading the first 4 books. In the first books, Aoléon and Gilbert met on Earth and she took Gilbert to Mars when they were chased by a neighbor. Gilbert learned about Martians and other beings besides Earthlings (or Terrans as Martians call us). The excitement really began when Gilbert and Aoléon found out that the Luminon (the leader of Mars) was planning on invading Earth because he wants their milk supply.
Aoléon #5 starts with Aoléon, Gilbert, Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot arriving at Cydonia where Aoléon’s parents are in prison. There is a lot of action and fighting in this book. The group is determined to not only get her parents out of prison, but to save Earth from invasion, which has already started.
Brent LeVasseur does a good job at describing the characters and I really like his pictures, which are detailed and colorful. Every time I came to a new page, I was hoping there would be a picture.
I think any child would enjoy the Aoléon series. Not only does it have aliens and alien invasions but it has great illustrations. FYI: books #4 and 5 have some violence.
