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.
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.
Absoludicrous! Aoleon is a really cool girl (even though she is 108 years old!) I’m getting the royal tour of her city, Olympus Mons. Her family is really nice and we had galact pizza (with asteroids – yum!) She even showed me how to use her holokron to order the pizza.
There are so many things to learn here on Mars, a lot of technical stuff (it’s a good thing there is a glossary at the end of the book). I really dig Aoleon’s school, The Martian Space Academy and Plutarch Xenocrates really rock! The classroom is really awesome, I could spend all day looking around.
I’m having so much fun here, although I do miss home. But there is something sinister going on here, I’m not quite sure what it is. Are we in danger?
