Book Description

For fifteen years, the Sternekinder have been launching pirate attacks on United States of the Zodiac shipping. If their hidden homeworld of Asgard could be found an end could be put to this, and Charity Drummond and Cleopatra Shakespeare have seen Asgard's sky - but no-one else in the cadet corps is prepared to believe Asgard even exists...

Meanwhile, on Earth, Larry is back - and this time, his name has an extra 'L' in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous series 21 April 2014
By Monty
Verified Purchase
This is a review of the whole series of five titles. The first one, Saucerers and Gondoliers, starts a little slowly and maybe isn't quite as good as the others, but once Mr Green has batted himself in the books fairly romp along, creating a science-fiction world unlike any other. You do need to read them in order, though, or you'll miss a lot of what is going on. These stories are, of course, aimed at teenagers, and the main characters are a tough and knowing bunch of kids from a strongly multicultural secondary school in the English Midlands. And my goodness they need to be tough, because terrible things happen to them! These stories pull no punches, although there is never any violence not 'in context,' and, of course, no explicit sex. That is not to say you need to be fourteen years old to enjoy them. I'm sixty seven and couldn't put them down -- devouring them all, one after another -- and I see from other reviews that I'm not the only one.
The books are subtly didactic -- you learn a good deal of history and geography along the way -- and there are characters from just about every race, creed and nationality to be found here (Ant is white, Cleo is black. Ant is the practical one, Cleo is more academic). The series is also peppered with dialogue in other languages, notably German and Russian. You don't have to know any, but it's more amusing if you do, and if you are doing German at school I should imagine you'll love it. I can only guess the author is or was a school teacher, as it's hard to believe he could have written these stories so realistically otherwise. I just wish I'd had one like him! You often see complaints that there are not enough boys' stories published at the moment. Well, there's plenty of boy-stuff here, believe me, although girls will like them just as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking read 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
Although this series is written for children, there's a lot for grown-ups that children wouldn't get. At times hilarious, this series had me laughing out loud in several occasions. It helps if you can understand German, Russian, Spanish, Latin and Welsh (oes, Cymraeg!) as the author has sprinkled phrases in these languages liberally throughout. It's worth taking the time to translate these as one or two contain some of the best jokes.

The series is really one, long story and the later books have several references to characters and events from the earlier ones. So it's best to read through this series in order.

I thoroughly enjoyed episodes 1 to 5 and can't wait for the sixth.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable read 30 Mar. 2014
By Fizzog

I have read all of the Ant and Cleo books now and found them to be a novel, entertaining read. Somewhat simplistic compared the hard SciFi/Space Operas that I normally read, but then again they don't pretend to be deep and meaningful. I look forward to any future books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase
Funny, pacey and really a lot better than I thought they would be. Paid for the whole series after reading the first for free. Will be looking for other books of his to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story just keeps getting better and better. 29 Aug. 2013
The story seamlessly unfolds from the previous books and engages you right from the beginning. The introduction of relationships between some of the secondary characters elevates this to a new height, and I literally couldn't put it down. It would be a good place to end the series, but I really hope that he doesn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read. 27 Nov. 2014
By J. Ware

Love the Ant and Cleo books. They remind me of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett at their best and I can think of no higher praise than that. They are clever, funny and enjoyable. I won't give a synopsis of the plot but suffice it to say that I endorse this book.
