Aoléon: The Martian Girl (Part Three) is quite action packed. In Part Three, Gilbert and Aoléon "phase-jump" to Luminon's dazzling palace, in the center of the Martian megapolis, to investigate a suspicious matter, with the help of an omnitool from their friend, Bizwat, the pizza delivery guy. The duo discovers that there's indeed a sinister plan in the works to sabotage the Galactworks, which produces millions of gallons of galactmilk daily for the Martian people. They must warn Aoléon's father, Deimos, who manages the Galactworks pumps, and so they travel to the plant, which is located in the bottom of an extinct Martian volcano. Aoléon also brings her pet, Zoot, to the plant, because she feels that he may be helpful. Gilbert notices a mysterious saboteur near the enormous maintenance bot at the plant, and Aoléon sends Zoot over to intervene. Deimos is hurt in an explosion at the plant, and Aoléon and Gilbert unveil the saboteur. The next day, Aoléon takes her pilot’s exam so that she'll be able to join the Martian intergalactic exploration fleet, but things do not go as planned, and they are chased by Draconian warriors. In the last chapter of Part Three, Gilbert gets a chance to skyboard, and he seems like a "natural". However, before too long his fun escapade becomes a struggle for survival, when he and Aoléon are chased by the Royal Paladin Guard.
"They had been found. The paladins quickly gained on them. The disruptor cannons mounted on their hoversleds burped rapid-fire bursts. Blasts of plasma flew past the duo. Aoléon screamed, almost losing her balance. They barely avoided several shots that came close to hitting their mark."
~ Aoléon: The Martian Girl (Part 3), Brent LeVasseur
When they finally get back to Aoléon's home, Una, Aoléon's baby sister, is very upset because her parents have been arrested and whisked off to prison. Gilbert and Aoléon may need the help of Bizwat, the pizza delivery guy, once again.
There is a lot going on in this book! But I think this fast-paced book is fantastic. I read it on my computer, and also looked at it on my iPad mini. I hope to share it with my young nephews, and think that they'll adore it as well. It features brilliant graphics and is perfect for young adults (and older adults) who enjoy enchanting, imaginative Martian stories. I've enjoyed each part of this story so far, and look forward to reading Part Four (which has a wonderful cover with many "bovars").
