BOOK DESCRIPTION:
          Aoleon and Gilbert have become the Luminon’s top priority in stopping the Martian resistance movement, and after being chased by the Royal Paladin Guard, they are forced to flee the Martian Megalopolis. Aoléon, Gilbert and Zoot escape with the help of Bizwat and his newly found friend, Helios, a first generation soldierbot.
          After their saucer is destroyed, they crash land somewhere in the deep Martian desert, and they set out to locate Kyrios and the secret base where Aoleon’s parents are being held captive.
          After battling the forces of nature, starvation, a Klyklon dust storm, (and not to mention a giant slor that almost swallows them alive), they finally make it to their destination. However, after Kyrios gives Gilbert some basic training to develop his budding psionic power, they learn that their journey is far from over.
          Will Aoléon, Glbert, Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot be able to rescue Aoleon’s parents and stop the Martian invasion of Earth in time?
          Read part 4 to find out!
NOW FOR THE REVIEW:
          The book starts with Phobos, Aoleon’s mother, sitting in a cell and her exchange with a fellow prisoner which leads him to be taken away for interrogation. The grim opening scene (hopefully) written to show us how tough the Martian government and the Luminon are gives us an idea of what to expect. On one hand, we see Aoleon trying to save her parents and on the other we see the Luminon creating and strengthening his army. Tension builds up in an uneven pace in the book.
          With help from Kyrios, a wise old Martian, Aoleon learns to enhance her powers while Gilbert learns to harness his abilities. The Luminon’s unforgiving attempts to terminate the revolt are described in detail, bearing an eerie similarity to some of the famous wars we already know. The penultimate book of the series sets the stage for book 5 and keeps the anticipation up!
BEST PARTS:
(A compilation of scenes that were – I guess unintentionally – too funny that I laughed out loud, inappropriately!)
·        Aliens Carjacking and shopping.
·        Speaker Peeper Lisping. “I’m tho thorry Thenator, but that information is CLATHIFIED”
·        Gilbert’s message to the ‘Terrans’ via the NASA Mars Rover.
·        When Kyrios sounds like Dumbledore.

SPECIAL MENTION:
          The graphics of the books in this series are always a visual treat, but they were more pronounced in this book because they helped the readers visualise some of the most unimaginable scenarios and Martian monsters in the story. Special mention and applause for that!
