The Ice Orphan of Ganymede Review

*This is book 2 to The Jupiter Chronicles. I have reviewed book 1, The Secret of the Great Red Spot, HERE.

The war has been won, the Jovians are free of the tyranny of Phobos, but the planet now lies in ruins. The Sinu and the Fiegan Firelords are threatening a civil war and the people of Jupiter are going hungry. First Petros has failed as their protector and General Ardor wants him replaced. 

To make matters worse, the Castillos face a new challenge. 

Ian is sick and no doctor on Earth can help 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. 

Left with no answers they are forced to face a painful truth. 

Ian is dying.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review

My Review

This part of the story picks up almost right where book 1 left off. The Steam Punk genre makes for a very fun read. The adventure continues with some new and some known characters. The kids saved their long lost father in the first book, and now they are in a race to save Ian. They encounter a lot of adventure and fun along the way. The author has described every character and setting in such detail that you feel you are along for the ride and seeing everything you are reading about. This series is unique in that it's great for younger readers, my 9 year old son loves these books! The stories are so fun and interesting that I find myself hooked on them also! There is something for everyone in this series and if you are looking for a fun summer read for your kids, and yourself, you should get these books!

About the Author

Leonardo Ramirez is a husband, a father, a Karate instructor with a 3rd degree black belt, and a writer. His first graphic novel, Haven, (reviewed here) is a supernatural Young Adult story centered on an ancient war between the Dante family and the nine circles of hell. His follow up is a self-published children’s Steampunk book called The Jupiter Chronicles: The Secret of the Great Red Spot. It follows the adventure of two children as they are transported to the steam-powered cities of Jupiter, find their long-lost father, stop an attack from Mars, and witness the birth of Steampunk.

My heart and motive have always been for people who are hurting. These can be kids who have had to suffer through child abuse or neglect or an absent parent which can be equally torturous as was the case in The Jupiter Chronicles. It can also be young girls who have suffered an assault like Haven did in Haven of Dante. Young or old it doesn’t matter. Those are the kids and adults I want to speak to because I’ve been there.

It’s not just Science Fiction.
It’s Science Fiction for the Human Condition.
