Aoleon The Martian Girl: Science Fiction Saga (Part 2)

The YA market is a genre that I would not begin to know how to address as a writer. Let me make that perfectly clear beforehand. For Brent LeVasseur, that seems to be absolutely no problem. His amazingly illustrated science fiction saga, Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga - Part 2: The Luminess of Mars is further proof.

Much like the first part of this delightful saga, Mr. LeVasseur's strength is in the fact that he does not "dumb down" the dialog. If he fosters that amazing degree of curiosity that is eventually beaten out of us as adults, then you will have children scouring resources for the likes of Ayn Rand and investigating the "five" states of matter. I'm not saying that they will better their understanding of science by reading this wonderful story, but they may become more curious.

Besides the "learning" aspect, this story has what it needs most: an entertaining story line that will captivate young readers with its easy-to-relate-to issues like friendship, pizza, and rivalry. Did I say pizza? Yeah, and ice cream as well, but have to read for yourself. There is enough tension strung throughout and, just as you long for another, the next amazing image will appear to pull you into the story even further.

With so much depth for a YA title, some might actually shy away. I suggest that you take the approach of this amazing author and allow the young reader to plunge into this amazing story and discover for themselves what might trigger their amazing minds.

I received this title in advance in exchange for an honest review and I look forward to seeing where the next adventure leads.

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.
