Maihack, Mike. Secret of the Time Tablets. (Cleopatra in Space series, book 3) Scholastic/Graphix, 2016. $12.99. 192p. ISBN 9780545838689. Ages 7-10. P8Q7
The opening dream about Gozi, Cleo’s childhood friend, is abruptly interrupted by the Xerx warriors surrounding her spaceship. Thus begins the nonstop adventure as Cleo escapes and goes to Hykosis with Akila in a search for the time tablets with an old nemesis, sword thief Antony. The third book of the series provides the same excitement and action as the earlier two about a strong female character.
