Reviewed by Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite Ian and Callie are back at their brother and sister bickering but when cooperation is needed, they are certainly there for one another. The Ice Orphan of Ganymede, Book 2 of The Jupiter Chronicles by Leonardo Ramirez, picks up with Jupiter in turmoil and major questions about the ability of First Petros to rebuild the realms. With Ian’s sudden illness and his return to Jupiter in search of a cure, his legacy as a Castillo begins to become clear. In a competition to win the keys for the right to be healed in the Chrysalis Chamber, Ian and Callie help another contestant, in spite of the threat of losing. They gain his trust, however, and discover an amazing connection to this unusual young man, their father and the Chrono Legion, the peace keepers of the Jovian realm. Dealing with his uncertainty about his relationship with his father, Ian struggles with deciding how to continue – should he just trust things to work out or turn his back on a new friend to protect his feelings? The Ice Orphan of Ganymede, Book 2 of The Jupiter Chronicles by Leonardo Ramirez, is an excellent story, creatively combining fact and fiction both on Earth and in outer space. Ian and Callie are typical children with an interesting legacy and move between worlds as easily as between their home and a friend’s place. Issues of loss, love and abandonment are woven into the overall action of the story and provide a good lesson regarding motivation and personal growth in spite of hardships. Children of all ages can relate to the feelings of this unusual brother and sister pair as well as become enthralled with the action.
