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?

If you enjoyed reading the first four parts of the Aoléon the Martian Girl series you will certainly have fun reading this one. The story kicks off right where part four left off with Aoléon and Gilbert attempting to put a halt to the Martian invasion of Earth.
The action packed adventure includes a series of battle scenes as the two main characters attempt to fight off the evil Martians who are intent on stealing Earth’s cows.
The author includes many images in this book that help the reader visualize the alien creatures as the struggle between good and evil persists. It would certainly be fun for the reader to use his or her imagination to form a mental image of the aliens and the world they inhabit, but I enjoyed viewing the colorful, computer generated images created by the author. The depictions of battle scenes are filled with bright colors and scary alien faces. I particularly liked the interplanetary images of planets and spaceships. There is a realistic approach to the pictures. The wheat in the Nebraska farm appears three-dimensional and the light bouncing off the planets reminds me of images from the international space station.
In this book the author returns more to the action and adventure aspect of the series and focuses less on the character development realized in part four. While I enjoyed reading about the armed conflicts I must admit that I missed the character building of the previous book. The action and activity were interesting and fun but I hoped the in-depth and insightful conversations between the characters would continue throughout the final chapters. Nonetheless this was a fun book to read and a good way to end the Aoléon series.
