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?

The cattle of Terra are in danger. Soon the cows that supply milk to Earth people would be gone. And it was up to Earthboy Gilbert and her trusted Martian allies to prevent this from happening. But before that, Aoleon had to successfully save her parents who were abducted by the evil Luminon. And they have to battle new monsters and mechanical beasts along the way.
This is a heartwarming book. My sons almost cried when one of the characters were unconscious, we all thought someone was about to die. Their anticipation kicked up to a higher notch until they couldn’t take it anymore. My eldest actually stopped me from reading so he could concentrate and prepare for whatever that might have happened to their hero. I told them to breathe and relax. And like Aoleon, I think I telepathically sent my calm to my little ones, and it worked! (I must be an alien after all!)
My kiddos were awestruck with the graphics on the book. The lines and figures / images of the characters and settings were highly commendable, on a par with those Disney animated films. I wouldn’t be surprised if my kids suggest this to be made into a film or a tv series.
Storywise, the children are pleased with Gilbert because not only was he smart, he was also a good friend to Aoleon and highly responsible with his actions. My kids have learned a thing or two about friendship and loyalty. They said that eventhough Aoleon and Gilbert were known to sometimes break the rules, they make up to their parents by coming to terms with their mistakes, relying on their instincts, abilities and strengths and could be depended on with important decision-making.
I can’t believe that’s the end! My kids slightly complained because the Aoleon Sci-Fi series was completed. Yes, they’re quite sad to learn that this series had finally come to an end as they yearn for more. In their heart of hearts, I know they’re secretly formulating a mission to go to Nebraska and capture Gilbert and ask him what happens next.
