A war has been fought and lost by the Jovians. Now the answer to their freedom lies within the Great Red Spot and it's up to Ian and Callie to uncover its secret.

It is the year 1892 and Ian and Callie Castillo have had to suffer the hardships of a single parent family since their father went missing five years ago. Since then Ian has refused to use the last gift that his father left the wounded boy; a telescope that sits collecting dust in the attic. When Callie decides to peer through its murky lens it activates the device and sends the Castillo’s to the steam-powered floating cities of Jupiter to rescue their father and free the Jovians before the Martians launch their final attack.

What follows is the beginning of an era that will forever be known by its strange name…Steampunk. The Jupiter Chronicles series takes flight with the first book in the series….The Secret of the Great Red Spot.

{My Thoughts} – This book is about two children that live with their mother. Their father has been missing for five years. Their mother and their father has been keeping secrets from the children. One day the daughter goes up into the attic so that she can go on an imaginary adventure. When she is up there she messes with her brothers telescope. Her brother goes up there and sees her messing with it and gets on her about it because he has asked her time and again to leave it alone. She messes with it a little more and then something strange happens. This book is nicely written, it is thought provoking and has simple enough language that a second to third grader will be able to follow along. It is easy to understand and nicely written. I rather enjoyed reading this as it was a quick read and it left me wondering if there was going to be more to the story.
