Aoleon The Martian Girl: Part 2 by Brent LeVasseur



Book Descripton:

Aoléon and Gilbert receive a special mission from PAX, a wanted criminal and leader of the Martian resistance movement to investigate the Luminon of Mars, who he suspects is planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows. Gilbert has an encounter with the Luminess (the mate of the Luminon) and discovers something strange about her during a procession, and the duo are chased by the Royal Paladin Guard.

At Aoléon’s home, Gilbert meets Aoléon’s family, her sister Una, mother Phobos and father Deimos as well as her overzealous pet Zoot. He is also introduced to Bizwat, a covert operator and Procyon Commando, who uses his Saturn Pizza delivery job as a cover.

Gilbert then gets to visit the Martian Space Academy (Aoléon’s school) where he encounters Aoléon’s nemesis, Charm Lepton and her friend Quarkina, as well as receiving a history lesson on the Martian people by Plutarch Xenocrates. After class, Gilbert and Aoléon get to train in zero-G and Gilbert is treated to a Psi-ball match between Martian Space Academy and Martian Science Academy.

My Thoughts:

This is the part 2(of 5) in the Aoleon series. Within this story, we see a bit more of normal life for Aoleon, including home life and school. There's some action parts, and we learn a bit of the history of Mars.

This series is a bit more mature than I first thought. There's a reference to scantily clad girls in an underground club and a Viagraa'n that "gets easily excited". There's a bit more to it. I imagine most young readers wouldn't get it, but I imagine older children would find humor in it. Of course, I'm mentioning it for the parents out there that might want to know that kind of thing. Overall, it's clean, but a bit mature. There's also a great deal of technical talk that just blew right over my head.

Once again, my favorite part was the graphics. They're super bright and fun, and I was always excited to see another one showing up in the story. Most of them are full paged. They have a unique science-fiction-y feel to them. The story, in general, is very science-fiction-y. If you enjoy fun, alien adventures, with lots of bright and interesting graphics, give this series a try!
