    Thirteen-year-old Noah Zarc rockets to Venus in a quest to learn more about his past. He refuses to believe his father is really the monster everyone says he is. Could there be valid reasons for everything he's done, including abandoning Noah at birth? While searching for answers to secrets no one wants to talk about, even those that have remained hidden for over a thousand years, Noah becomes embroiled in a mission that could cause the greatest cataclysm in the history of the solar system.

    It's fun how the author plays around with time travel and yet still stays within the "time travel rules" he created in the first book.

    I love how there is a lot of international travel, too. Different countries and different people all with unique accents that the narrator does a great job of performing.

    The way the story flows keeps you guessing who the real bad guy is right up to the very end. No early clues that leave a story flat. Plenty of back and forth and twists and turns to keep you on your toes.

    Hark is a timid, pacifistic Viking with a love for all living things inspired by watching PETA documentaries. Crone is a vintage Schwinn road bike and a bit of an outcast himself, but it's not his fault who his rider is. Something has to change before the Elder bicycle and Orr, the Viking leader, throw them both out with the spare parts. A century after Fukushima and the toxic sea, Harek and his mind-beaming bicycle must prove themselves in a world where everyone (and every thing) is out to get them. Including Alec Baldwin.

    The title of my review says it all. It's bizarre, but in a very good way. Just when I thought it couldn't go any further, it actually did. Very well written and read. This is one of Mr. Douglas' best works.

    I don't want to say anymore. I'll just let you experience it for yourself.

    As battles rage across the solar system, Noah must work to join together a rag-tag bunch of miners, farmers, and scientists who would rather just live in peace. With only a time-traveling ship full of animals and a general from the history books, the Zarc family has to stand against the full might of the Poligarchy. Will the truth about what really happened 1,000 years in the past be enough to stop total war? Or will Noah and his friends need to find another way to bring down a dictator?

    Story

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the complete series. Each book has it's own uniqueness and yet flows nicely together as a whole. This conclusion to the series ties everything up nicely. But as most books do, there is room for future books to be written.

    I don't want to give anything away, but the narrator's performance at the end made me well up with tears. I've never had that happen to me before with an audiobook. And there are certain scenes that would have been confusing had the narrator not taken great care in making the quick point of view switches so smooth and clear.

    All in all, kudos to the author for a great series and kudos to the narrator for bringing it all to life!

    Story

    I bought this audiobook because my friend recommended it. She said she really enjoyed listening to it with her kids. It's something that even adults can enjoy. And she was right.

    The main character, Noah, is very cool, sarcastic, typical teenager. But he also has a streak of bravery in him as well. The book is written in first person so you get to hear his thoughts and feelings about everything.

    Time travel is a main part of the story and the author uses it very well. He created his own rules and sticks to them nicely.

    The bad guy is bad - what did you expect? ;)

    And the ending... well, for a "kids book"... it surprised even me!
