After reading and reviewing the first book in this series and then part 2 I’m back with part 3: The Hollow Moon.  Things are getting more and more tough up there!

This volume three was not as fun for me as the first two volumes. I’m not even going to give you my own synopsis, not much to add to the official one. In fact, it felt the book was stagnating somewhat: we are getting just a few extra details about that milking cows business, but things don’t evolve that much really.

The planet looks more and more like a Terran totalitarian regime, with an enormous palace, an army that overthrew the democratically elected government, and too powerful guards. It bothered me that these mean guards were given Greek names pertaining to mythology.
And there’s interrogation and torture, as well as spies. Nothing new under the sun. Actually Aoléon and Gilbert are captured once for interrogation at the beginning of volume 3, and sounds like more of the same is looming in volume 4.

The Martian people are nothing if not a bunch of dumb, useless eaters that will gladly hand over all of their freedoms to feel more secure.

What I really enjoyed a lot in the previous volumes was the nice balance between science-fiction, social elements, and hilarious details. For me, that’s this specific mix that made the book special and appropriate for Middle Grade. Otherwise, if it is to become merely science-fiction denouncing the awful things we are doing here on Earth, no need to redo it, this has been done before with brio.
But I didn’t really laugh during this one. Even Gilbert learning sky-boarding is already old story. Now that the moon has exploded, next two volumes will hopefully not be as hollow…

VERDICT: Easy quick science-fiction. However, compared to the previous volumes, it kept me wanting more.


Spying on the Luminon, Aoléon and Gilbert uncover his plot to steal Earth’s milk cows and make the disturbing discovery that the Martian leader plans to disrupt Mars’s galact supply. The duo races to warn Aoléon’s father, Deimos, a manager at the galactworks, before the Luminon’s saboteur can act.
While still on the run, Aoléon takes her pilot’s exam so she can join the Martian intergalactic exploration fleet. However, during the test-run, something goes horribly wrong. The two are put in a life-threatening situation and only Bizwat, Aoléon’s Procyon commando friend, can save them.
Gilbert finally gets his chance to learn to skyboard, but the lesson turns into a test of skill as he and Aoléon are chased by the Royal Paladin Guard.

  3. Too bad this one wasn’t as good as the previous books in the series, Emma. It’s always a little annoying and sad when that happens. After a couple of books, we have certain expectations, and while I’m sure it has to be very hard to meet those expectations, it’s also hard for us when they aren’t met.
    I hope your next read will blow your socks off!
