Science Fiction Series - Aoleon The Martian Girl Part 3 The Hollow Moon (Part 3 of 5)
Aoléon and Gilbert investigate the Luminon to try and uncover the plot to invade Earth to steal it’s milk cows. In the process, they discover a disturbing revelation about the Martian leader. After overhearing the Luminon discuss his plans to use sabotage to disrupt Mars’s galact supply, the duo races to try and to warn Aoléon’s father Deimos, who is a manager at the galactworks plant before the saboteur can act.
Meanwhile, Aoleon has to take her pilots exam, which would enable her to eventually join the Martian intergalactic explorational fleet. However, during the test-run, something goes horribly wrong. The two are put in a life threatening situation that only Bizwat, a Procyon commando, and Aoléon’s friend can save them from.
Gilbert finally gets his chance to learn to skyboard. However, things go horribly wrong and they are chased by the Royal Paladin guard.
Will they survive?
Join Aoleon and Gilbert in this exciting middle-grade scifi adventure story to Mars and beyond!
In the center of the Martian megalopolis stood a colossal fortress, a citadel-the newly acquired palace for the Luminon after his army had over thrown the democratically elected government, the Supreme Council of Twelve.
What I thought about the book
Part 3 of the Martian Girl adventure was pretty exciting! So much better for me than the second part as there is a lot more action in this one.
Aoléon and Gilbert are off on a grand adventure whether they want to be or not. Their is a plot a brewing and something is not right with the Luminon and Luminess. Gilbert has seen them both looking different but not sure what he is seeing. Now they are wanting to get rid of the rebellion and sabotage the Galackworks. Aoléon’s dad works there so they must go save him.
Then after that it’s time for Aoléon’s pilot’s test but things go wrong when they are attacked by Draconian who have been planning an invasion! Will Aoléon and Gilbert survive to be able to tell others?
Hollow Moon was so much more fun to read than the second part was for me as I just wasn’t into all that scientific detail. This part has a lot of action and a lot of fun. I am still very amazed at the illustrations done by the author himself as they are so vibrant and colorful. The evil Draconian looked so evil it was great.
If your children are into science fiction then they will really love The Martian Girl and even though it’s called The Martian Girl it has a boy in it so I think that young boys will like this book as well as girls.
