Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Thompson
It is the year 5012 and the residents of all of the planets in the Milky Way have banded together to form the Intergalactic Force Academy (IFA), an elite group of fighters sworn to protect and defend the galaxy. Peri is a pilot and a first-year cadet at the IFA. On a routine mission in their space pod, Peri and his half-Martian friend Diesel are attacked by an alien ship. Just before their pod is annihilated by DeathRays, they are transported back to the station; they find it is under attack. The two pilots are immediately forced aboard a cloaked ship that looks like a giant egg and told that they have their orders, but they know nothing about what they need to do. As Peri and Diesel desperately try to figure out how to fly this ship, the space station explodes, leaving them as the last defense against the alien invasion. The black-and-white illustrations do a great job of bringing the text alive. The ship is stock full of cool gadgetry and fighting abilities. Add to that Martian curses, monstrous aliens, and a deadly vortex that eats spaceships alive and this is a recipe for an unstoppable adventure series. Reviewer: Mary Thompson
