This is the second book in the Jupiter Chronicles, a steampunk series for children. I loved it!
Ian and Callie Castillo are fun characters. Ian is twelve and Callie is nine. Ian is an extremely serious young man. He is quite brave and determined. I absolutely LOVE Callie! She is more relaxed and has a funny sense of humour. However, she is just as brave as her brother.
This is a fun steampunk novel for children. The story is an amazing adventure that see's Ian and Callie travelling back to Jupiter, when Ian mysteriously becomes ill. The author's imagination in mixing reality and fantasy has created an exciting adventure that had me turning the pages! Steampunk is a relatively new genre for me, but I am finding out that I am enjoying it thoroughly! I love Callie's little journal entries, which still had me giggling. I could imagine both her face as she wrote them (full of mischief), and Ian's as he reacted (sometimes angry or disgusted depending on what she was writing). There is an exciting race scene, which reminded me of the Pod Race in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. However, the vehicles were powered by steam.
There are some new characters introduced, but it was nice to meet Francisus Flatulus Ferdinand again. His bodily dis-function is still in full swing, which will appeal to children. He made me laugh too!
The end of the story finishes on a slight twist that actually shocked me, and I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Leonardo Ramirez has written a fantastic steampunk novel that was fast paced and exciting enough to keep even the most fidgety youngster enthralled. This is an author I will be keeping an eye on in the future.
I highly recommend this book to younger readers aged 5 to 7 as a bedtime story, 7 to 10 year old's as a read along (or read alone depending on reading ability), and 10 to 12 year old's. I also recommend this book to adults who love younger YA or steampunk genres. - Lynn Worton
Ian and Callie are two kids (brother & sister) that just found out their father is from Jupiter and the reasons behind him missing for some much of their lives. In the first book they take a trip to Jupiter and find out some many strange things bout their father and his life. In the second book we start out with Ian extremely sick. No doctor on Earth can make him better and they say he will die soon. Callie decides to go back to Jupiter with Ian to see if they can find a way to heal him. “When Ian and Callie return to Jupiter to find a cure, they discover that the secret may be found in the Book of Ganymede. But now, the book is missing.” They must find this book before it’s too late. While in Space they have to play a game to win what they need to heal Ian. While playing this game they meet someone very interesting. Little do they know but their world is going to change again.
I love these books. They are a short read and geared towards ages 7-10. Everything is run on steam and everything seems old. It gives the steampunk feel. The book takes you on a wild and crazy adventure. I felt like I was another sibling traveling with them and facing the same challenges.
Each chapter has a title letting me know where the story is going. In between every few chapters their are little facts about Jupiter and the nation that lives there. This little section make the story come even more alive and even more real to me as the reader.
I can’t wait for another book to come out. I want to go on another adventure with Ian and Callie and their friends. I’d even love to see these stories become a short movie or TV series.
