Ladek, Ashleigh, Skyla and Robbie are ordinary kids who like skateboarding, tennis, martial arts, slingshots and the latest Tony Hawk video games. But the Planet Treasure Guardians books slam 'em face-first into a non-stop, action-packed, adventure that pits them against an evil empire of aliens who want to enslave the Earth! Before they know it they're solving bizarre riddles, gaining magic powers from gems, and having their science teacher give them extra homework so she can kill them. Which is fairly normal, except for the killing. Here's our review of the first two books.
Planet Treasure Guardians - Battle for the Savant Sceptre
Finding a cool rock on the beach turns into the adventure of a lifetime as the four heroes meet the mysterious Zonule and join an intergalactic alliance. The four learn to work together as the Planet Treasure Guardians and battle the Tanyaska, an evil empire of snake aliens who sent their queen to Earth disguised as a science teacher! It's a cheesy adventure with goofy riddles that's a decent read.
Planet Treasure Guardians - Hunt for the Emberteller
The adventure continues as the Planet Treasure Guardians start on their second mission. This time a ton of different aliens pop up, the guardians travel to new planets, Ms. Scryven reveals her true form and everybody starts keeping secrets from everybody else, even the bad guys! The aliens are even weirder than the first book, and the gem powers get crazy, but the adventure is still a fun read.
Planet Treasure Guardians - The Bottom Line
All the Planet Treasure Guardians books have great characters! The heroes are smart, strong and fairly cool. Even the adults are reasonable, with parents that actually listen to their kids! The gem powers are fun, although they get a bit silly in the second book. Unfortunately, the bad guys and aliens are a bit goofy, and the story can sometime get really clunky. But if you want a fun read about aliens, astral travel, adventure and skateboarding, you could do a lot worse than these addictively fun books.
