Events are picking up speed as Aoleon and Gilbert get closer to the heart of the problems on Mars. They manage to sneak inside the Luminon's palace, but what they see is confusing. Why would the Luminon's appearance seem to flicker and be replaced by that of a vicious reptile? And why is he talking about attacking facilities on Mars, attacking his own people? The Galactworks is sabotaged by someone they both recognize. When Aoleon takes her pilot's flight test, the ship is attacked by forces hidden in space near Mars. Even renting a skyboard for Gilbert ends in disaster as they are targeted by Paladin guards.
Can they reach the contact that the rebel leader, Pax, has asked them to find? Why does he insist that these two children are the only ones who can find out what is really going on and stop an invasion of Earth? With spies, saboteurs, and alien soldiers after them, will they survive long enough to get any answers? We will have to keep reading to find out.
