Absoludicrous! Aoleon is a really cool girl (even though she is 108 years old!) I'm getting the royal tour of her city, Olympus Mons. Her family is really nice and we had galact pizza (with asteroids - yum!) She even showed me how to use her holokron to order the pizza.

There are so many things to learn here on Mars, a lot of technical stuff (it's a good thing there is a glossary at the end of the book). I really dig Aoleon's school, The Martian Space Academy and Plutarch Xenocrates really rock! The classroom is really awesome, I could spend all day looking around.

I'm having so much fun here, although I do miss home. But there is something sinister going on here, I'm not quite sure what it is. Are we in danger?

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's Take a Trip to Mars! 19 February 2015
By Beverly's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

The story continues with Gilbert finally arriving on Mars. I just love the entire idea of this story and all the fantastic adventures Gilbert has with Aoleon.
The cover to this book is just amazing. I have always been fascinated by book covers because they are the first impression we get about what is inside a book. This is a fantastic YA Sci Fi read and I highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Mars Adventure 18 February 2015
By Pinky Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
WOW !

This is the second book in a 5 book series about Gilbert and his adventures with Aoléon on Mars. In this instalment we are introduced to a few more characters, Aoléon's family, her nemesis Charm Lepton and her friend Quarkina, and an interesting character called Bizwat who is an undercover agent and Procyon Commando.

We learn a little bit more about how Aoléon lives and eats (let me tell you if you are lactose intolerant you don’t want to live here !) and Gilbert has the opportunity to go to the Martian Space Academy, and watch Aoléon play Psi-ball. We learn more about the special mission and have a rather creepy experience with the Luminess.

This book has been written in wonderfully short bites that is easy to follow with captivating imagery and believable dialect.

As with book 1 the illustrations in this book are AMAZING.

Brent LeVasseur has captured the essence of each character and the surrounding landscape and draws you into the world where you forget it is only imagination.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series, and am looking forward to reading future instalments following the adventures of Aoléon and Gilbert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous illustrations and more galactic shenanigans and intrigue 17 February 2015
By laurathomas61 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second book in this series and I won’t reveal anything the blurb doesn’t tell you so there will be no spoilers.

Our young co-conspirators, Gilbert and Aoleon, are becoming fast friends and having a blast on Mars. I wish I could be there. It looks and sounds like such fun.

The space ships flit by overhead and the streets are crowded. To keep his identity from the martians, Aoleon has Gilbert paint his skin blue and cautions him to not draw attention to himself. Her parents are nervous about having a Terran (human) in their home but any friend of Aoleon’s is welcome.

After getting to know these two characters, it came as no surprise they couldn’t stay out of trouble for long.
They are plopped into the middle of a resistance and Gilbert notices something strange going on with the Luminess, the Luminon’s mate. Ah, the plot thickens.

It’s no longer fun and games for these two as they run from the Mars leaders and their Paladin Guards.
As with the first book, this one is filled with exciting illustrations that leap off the pages with spectacular colors. They are almost 3-D and such fun.

Some things are different yet similar on Mars as on Earth.
The pets are odd and I’m still trying to figure out if they are supposed to be dogs and cats.
There are gangs on Mars just waiting for an opportunity to rob you blind. And there are bullies too. Gilbert gets to meet Aoleon’s tormentors up close and personal like.

Spaceships zoom by overhead displaying advertisements., kind of like how New York City uses their buildings.
And there’s pizza! It’s not the same as ours, but not too bad according to Gilbert. They call it a Galact Platter and it looks like pizza to me.

Gilbert gets a surprise when he learns the martians fear us humans. They are mind readers and, as such, can’t tell a lie. When the Luminess reads Gilbert’s mind he also reads hers. I see why they might fear us. No secrets stay secret for long.
Something’s brewing on Mars and the target is Earth and our cows.

Let’s hope Aoleon and Gilbert are up to the task.

I enjoyed this second adventure as much as the first and will continue reading the series to it’s conclusion. A whole lot of fun and such amazing art work. I hope to one day have these as print books so I can really enjoy the illustrations. And while this is a book for young readers, adults will love it too.

I received this book for my honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy quick hilarious science-fiction 16 February 2015
By wordsandpeace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
VERDICT: Take a break and follow Gilbert and her Martian friend. Have fun but be careful: the trip is turning into a dangerous mission! Easy quick hilarious science-fiction.

At the end of last year I was invited to review the first book in this series. So I’m glad to be back for part 2: Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga – Part 2: The Luminess of Mars, in which extra layers of plot are introduced, making it getting more complex and intriguing.

With still lots of hilarious details in the background, mirroring Earth life in Mars society, we get to know Aoléon better, her family, and her school system. The plot also thickens as we meet the Mars matriarch, the Luminess. There’s something weird going on in her palace, and Aoléon will have to decide if she is ready to take the risk to investigate.

It can be quite dangerous, as the system sounds close to totalitarianism:

there’s a scary elite order of Martian special forces soldiers with extremely powerful weapons
Mars has an equivalent to the CIA
And maybe even more dangerous, Martians use telepathy to beam information or commands directly into your brain. Not easy to protect yourself. And you can’t even lie, as your lies will be perceived right away!
But you can always use your cloaking shield, which makes you invisible, and you can walk up walls, quite useful!
Or you can have recourse to the ultimate solution: teleportation, or phasing, through super-consciousness.

Like on Earth, there can be lots of traffic (air traffic). There are also red light zones, some illegal-alien activities, and gangs.
At school, you can study (Martian) anthropology and meet with “exchange students” coming from other planets and star systems.

Here are some funny details I really enjoyed:

the name of a Martian rock band: The Black Holes
“Absoludicrous”
They even eat some type of pizza, delivered from Saturn!
Mars is running out of milk to make the base of their food, the galact, so they may have to steal milking cows from Earth!
The use of Greek (the galact is but one example, with great play on words of course for space stuff) for some Martian terminology!

No civilized world can exist without pizza.

It would seem that bad school food is a constant in the universe

The book has also lots of scientific details, for instance on plasma, speed, etc. To better understand this and invented terminology, you can find a Glossary at the end of the book.
And of course the illustrations are awesome.
