UK Kirkus review
This inter-galactic adventure is the exciting sequel to Memoirs of a Dangerous Alien. Four months before the story begins, the world had 'stumbled on the brink of oblivion'. Aliens had threatened to destroy civilization by brainwashing the world's leaders. Dominic and the other members of the intrepid Black Star Gang aim to prevent the mass brainwashing that is part of the ominous United Council of Planets' plan for the Earth. The tale moves at a fast, effective pace. Well written, it is brimming with rich descriptions that will fire the imagination of young sci-fi enthusiasts. This is a highly original story, which is entertaining and full of humour as well as exciting and suspenseful. The reader is whisked on an adventure that sparkles with strange characters, such as the cat that bleeps, and high tech gadgets like gravity blasters, incapacitators, scoot-suits and invisibility screens. The final responsibility to save himself, his friends and family from mental deletion rests with Dominic. He must find a way to blow-up the United Council of Planets' all-powerful central computer. An enthralling story that will prove a favourite with readers of eight years and above. (Kirkus UK)
