AOLEON THE MARTIAN GIRL PART 2

Welcome Wednesday!
She's back, our favorite Martian Girl, with more adventures and fun
in AOLEON THE MARTIAN GIRL: A SCIENCE FICTION AND
FANTASY SAGA PART 2 - THE LUMINESS OF MARS
by Author Brent LeVasseur.
 
 
 
Book Description:
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 Review:
 
AOLEON: THE MARTIAN GIRL PART 2
By Brent LeVasseur
 
Aoleon, our lovable Martian girl, and Gilbert, our adventuresome Earthling boy, are back. Author Brent LeVasseur’s AOLEON: THE MARTIAN GIRL, PART 2, follows our hero and heroine on another wild adventure as Aoleon introduces Gilbert to life on her planet. The reader learns a lot about Mars. For instance, on Mars, Gilbert has almost super human strength and speed. Nice. We also learn there is an age difference: Aoleon is a teenager on Mars, but according to Earth time she’s around 108 years old. The Martians can read each other’s minds, too, which sounds like fun, but it does have disadvantages. You can’t tell a lie because everyone knows when you do.  
Gilbert and Aoleon do a lot of fun things on Mars, like eat pizza, even though it’s quite a bit different to Earth pizza. They also attend school with students from Mars and “exchange students” from other planets, which is pretty interesting. Everything about Mars isn’t fun though. Danger also threatens the kids, and they soon find themselves on a mission to discover exactly what’s going on.
Mr. LeVasseur has invented some very unusual characters. Or has he? Do we really know what’s out there on other planets? Aoleon and the other characters in the story could be real. Who knows? The author also scatters colorful and fascinating illustrations throughout the story that give the reader a visual image of the characters and the planet. AOLEON: THE MARTIAN GIRL PART 2 is a nice follow up to the first book. I wonder what the daring duo will be up to in book 3.
This is a fun read for middle grade/tween readers. Adults will enjoy it too.
