About the Book
Cleopatra's space adventure in the REALLY far future continues!

A mysterious thief has stolen the ancient sword Cleo recovered in Book One: Target Practice, and she's determined to get it back. But her teachers at Yasiro Academy forbid her from risking her life, so she's stuck at school, trying to adjust to her newfound popularity and responsibility. And when she learns more about the prophecy that names her the savior of the galaxy, she must go on a dangerous journey to find the time tablets that could decide her fate... before they fall into the wrong hands!

My Take on the Book
The book is set up like a comic strip with speech bubbles with the illustrations. There is so much imagination in the text, the adventure story, and the sound effect words used. The story takes place in the future and the main character is a girl named Cleopatra. She attends Yasira Academy on the Planet Mayet. She is on the military defense team for the city she lives in.

There is a thief, Antony, who steals a sword and of course it gets into the hands of the enemy of Cleopatra and her colleagues. As she boards a space ship with her friends , the reader can feel that something will happen before they find the sword. And it does.

However that is where the author stops Book Two. The crew with Cleopatra are in danger and what will happen next??? I guess we will need to wait until Book Three is printed. 

This is a good adventure story for those young readers who enjoy space and using their imagination.
