Castillo continues to share his unique mechanical abilities and works with famous scientist Nikola Tesla to figure out how to operate a unique orb in The Jupiter Chronicles: The Orb of Terra by Leonardo Ramirez. Still unsure of the fate of his father back on Jupiter, Ian, along with his sister, Callie, and other friends of the Chrono Legion try to defend Earth from an attack by a tremendous beast that the Martians left behind. The mineral that was discovered and activates the orb is also the power responsible for waking the beast that destroys ships and comes to destroy their city.
Meanwhile, the Book of Worlds and Jupiter itself are under attack and Nomi must do his part to continue the legacy of the First and Seconds, saving the realms from Martian invaders. The Jovians jealously guard The Mist, the source of their power, and everyone fights to keep it safe, now involving planet Earth in the struggle. How will everyone, including Ian’s Earth friends, Dr. Cain and Dr. Tesla, work together to stop the threat?
Leonardo Ramirez continues his fantastic children’s fantasy/sci-fi series, The Jupiter Chronicles, with Book 3: The Orb of Terra. The characters are evolving and growing through trials and obstacles, proving that with determination you can do so much. Vivid descriptions make the story come alive so you feel that you are flying along with them on their hover bikes and fireflights. One caution for readers, though, is that this is not a book that you can follow well if you have not read the previous volumes for the background of the characters and their situation, but with that knowledge, you can really enjoy what The Orb of Terra has to offer. Another great book!
