I know children love action and adventures. Well this book sure has it. I truly know it got a space in it as well. It wonderful. Pictures are done well. They seem to capture you to look at them.

Can they warn her father about Galact saboteur can do any damage. What happens next is just the beginning for their adventure and it live treating. They seem to find something in the moon above Mars.

Pax shows up and tell him that Aoleon an Gilbert will need to escape while they can and need to go somewhere where they can get the help. Will they escape? You will need to read to find out.

I enjoyed the first part of the series as Gilbert meets Aoleon for the first time. This second book, however, takes the story a step further as Gilbert arrives on Mars and experiences a meeting with Aoleon’s parents and a taste of Mars food. In this episode we quickly become immersed in a different world and the clever blending of theoretical science with some mind blowing jargon somehow makes it all seem feasible – probably more so if you are a middle-grader rather than a middle aged adult!The characters of Gilbert, an amiable lad who doesn’t particularly like school but who has the odd moment of homesickness is particularly endearing, as is Aoleon who is sensitive, fun and the kind of friend everybody would like to have. As Gilbert goes to Mars Space School we encounter some not very nice ‘friends’ of Aoleon’s, who no doubt teens will relate to. A smattering of Greek, a Mars history lesson and some references that will no doubt go over the heads of most younger readers make this a book for everyone. Once again you must see the illustrations to truly get inside the mind of this brilliant author.

I received a free ecopy for an honest review. This is the second book in a series. In the first book, Aoléon and Gilbert meet on Earth and she takes Gilbert to Mars when they are chased by  neighbor. In this book, Gilbert learns about Martians and that there are other beings besides Earthlings (or Terrans as Martians call us). Aoléon #2 is mostly about how Martians eat and live. They go to school just like children on Earth. They also have the capability to read minds and share their thoughts. Because of one such episode, Gilbert knows that there is something strange going on with the Luminess (the spouse of their leader), and he and Aoléon plan on finding out what it is. I'm sure that will be addressed in a future episode.  Brent LeVasseur does a good job at describing Mars, its buildings, and especially the characters. His pictures are also great. They're detailed and colorful. I think any child would enjoy this story of the friendship between a boy and a Martian girl. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

At the end of book one of  Aoléon The Martian Girl, Aoléon had brought Gilbert to Mars and was showing him what Martians do for fun. Gilbert was just getting use to his new space suit and the lighter gravitational pull on Mars when they receive a mission. They are given the task to investigate the Luminon of Mars who is suspected of planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows. This is all in addition to attending Martian school and Gilbert having to learn about Martian culture. I loved how in Aoléon The Martian Girl: Luminess of Mars, Brent LeVasseur starts to show the difference between Martian culture and Earth culture. I was surprised that a quote from Ayn Rand is used to describe the differences between Martians and Earthlings. Aoléon points out how Martians share thoughts and memories telepathically while people on Earth are more individualistic. She continues to say that this is why beings from other planets fear Earth. I loved this idea and it showed me that despite this book being meant for a middle school audience, adults can get something out of it as well. Another part I enjoyed was hearing what goes on in a Martian school, I’ll tell you that it’s a little different than earth school. Much like the first book in the series, this book is filled with action, comedy and some great computer art. I think the art in book 2 is better than the art in book 1, because in this book there are more pictures of Martian cities. The detail that goes into showing the physical differences between each martian is unbelievable and I can only imagine how much work goes into each picture. That’s not all though, the buildings that are in some of the art looks like something that you would want to see in a gallery of Science Fiction art. On the cover you get a small sample of what a Martian city looks like, but in the book there are more detailed pictures that are out of this world, literally. Aoléon The Martian Girl: Luminess of Mars is a book that works on several different levels. It’s a kid’s book that adults will love and includes great art and characters that will make you want to read the next book in the series. Not only has Brent LeVasseur given some breathtaking art in this book, he has also created a Martian mythology that Science Fiction fans will love. I can hardly wait to see where this book series will go next. This is a great book that will get kids to see what new worlds can be explored by reading Science Fiction.

The story starts with Aoleon and Gilbert meet Luminess, the mate to the Martian leader Lumion, which leads Gilbert to a strange experience, a vision, and being chased by the Royal Paladin Guards. When they meet Aoleon’s friend Bizwat, Aoleon tells him how they have been asked to check into Lumion. Bizwat tell both of them about the loss of bovars, Martian cows that have disappeared. He then warns both Aoleon and Gilbert to be careful in their investigation. Aoleon and Gilbert are exploring Mars and what a typical day as a Martian student is like. Although Aoleon tried to disguise Gilbert, with everyone being telepathic it seems that it was pointless. It is also a little challenging for Gilbert to know that others can read his mind but it does take learning to new levels. Gilbert learns more about Aoleon’s friends and the girls that are giving her a hard time just like any school. He also gets to watch the big psi-ball match that Aoelon is about to participate in. I really love this story. Gilbert is having a great adventure on Mars and learning so much. I am curious about Luminess but we don’t see much of that except from the beginning of the story. I love how even through Aoleon is a Martian she has pretty much the same school experience as anyone on Earth. Plus I love all the illustrations. They really make the story come to life. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen in the next book. Make sure to add this series to your bookshelf. It’s good for middle grade readers all the way up to adults. I really think anyone will like it. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

This second book is even better! Gilbert had finally arrived in Mars, and his adventures began. He got to meet Luminess, the matriarch and leader of the City of Luminon, but somewhere along their meeting, Gilbert, in his mind, saw the Luminess transformed into a lizard. This piqued Aoleon’s interest, making her determined to go on with the mission tasked to her by the fugitive resistance leader, Konx Om Pax. Then, Gilbert was finally introduced to Aoleon’s family, and had experienced eating Galact Platter, the Mars version of pizza, topped with asteroids! How cool is that? My kids love pizza, too, so they now even love Aoleon more and more. And when they got to the Martian Space Academy where Aoleon studies, he learned of their history, culture, foreign students, and games like psi-ball match. And of course, a school isn’t complete without the bullies; this time in the form of Charm Lepton and her minions, who found ways to irk and even sabotage Aoleon’s skyboard. Not cool! We really enjoyed reading this book and looking at the crisp illustrations. Now we get a better glimpse of Mars because of the fantastic images. My sons used their laptop to read (on Kindle for Windows) and view the images better and they were mesmerized with the beauty that is Mars. (Actually, they thought my Kindle is quite small, which makes sense!) Brent LeVasseur is really a talented writer and artist! We can’t wait to read what happens next with Aoleon and Gilbert as they continue with their mission in Book 3 – Hollow Moon.

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. ###

I would give this 4 1/2 stars I don't normally read books aimed at middle grade aged people, but this one sounded interesting so I had to check it out. So glad I did because the book is fast paced from the beginning and doesn't stop until it leaves you hanging waiting for part 2! Gilbert is a typical boy and Aoléon is your typical Martian, I guess? Who knows what a typical Martian is like! Anyway, Aoléon takes Gilbert on the ride of his life in the spaceship and while it makes him nervous, he is also very excited by this experience. After evading NORAD and NASA and every other government entity, they head to Mars where Gilbert gets a taste of what it is like on Mars. I was surprised that during this escape that the spaceship didn't seem to bring about as much attention as I would have thought considering it was close to the ground in several countries and seen by many. This story is very engaging, descriptive and made me laugh along with keeping me on the edge of my seat during various parts of the book. I was very sad to see part 1 end. There are also illustrations in this book that are amazing. Very lifelike and reminds me of some animated movies like Book of Life or Toy Story...there is probably a better example but that is what I could come up with off the top of my head! There is one illustration I wish I could show you because it cracked me up....I was reading along and it talks about how Aoléon does something as they are trying to leave and cows start floating in this bubble. Then the military shows up trying to shoot down the spaceship and all of a sudden a cow is in the line of sight of the plane....I flip the page on my Kindle and there is the image. It was just like I imagined and 100 times better.

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.

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 just finished reading Part 2 of this wonderful series by Brent LeVasseur. Gilbert is a boy from Earth who is with Aoleon a Martian girl, meeting her family and learning  all about her. I read Part 1 and I also enjoyed the storyline in that novel.  When I saw the illustrations  I was very impressed. Then I read that the  author has not only wrote the book but he also did the illustrations. They were fantastic! I cannot wait for the next part of this great series. Anyone who loves science fiction and or fantasy stories will love this series. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are my own.

Love it! In this installment of the saga, Aolean The Martian Girl, it starts with a big "Whoohoo!" from Gilbert and fittingly so as this episode picks up where part one left off. The incredible journey continues with Gilbert really getting into the Martian scene. A enchanting storyline and plot not to mention the spectacular illustrations. (I love the rock band) In addition to an excellent syfy tale, I just discovered that the author, Brent LeVasseur has a theme song for this series. It's a cool song and I encourage you to check it out. I like the novel approach to having a "Theme Song," especially when it's as fantastic as the story and graphics. Well done has this is a hypnotic tale that will have me moving on to Part Three to see where this adventure goes. For fans of quality syfy, this is the total package and one that I recommend!

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK!: This book is the second part of the Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga. Since I had already been introduced to the basic concepts of Martians and Terrans (yes, earthlings) in part one of the series, I had an idea of what to expect in the story. Part one ended with Aoléon taking Gilbert home and showing him Mars. She also gets a message from the mysterious PAX who vows to overthrow a plot of stealing all milking cows from Earth. The reason why is explained in abundance in part 2. Aoléon and Gilbert travel to her home where her parents, though surprised she brought an earthling to Mars, still continue to be polite and extremely hospitable. Aoléon then takes Gilbert with her to school and the adventures they see there are detailed. The real adventure and the meaning behind the title are explained in one scene where the ‘Luminess’ (the mate of Luminon, ruler of Mars) meets Gilbert. The exchange between them happens to give credibility to the title. Other than this important sequence, the rest of the book has a lot of new characters and seems like scenes strung together in rehearsal for some big event. The new characters that are introduced are then defined (each is given a purpose. Some are friends, some are powerful teachers, some haters and some downright enemies. The detailing is like setting a stage for their individual performance in some big event that we are to expect in the remaining three parts of this saga. Though initially hesitant to flaunt Gilbert, Aoléon slowly overcomes her inhibitions and nervousness as people start recognising him for the Terran that he is. By the time this book ends, many people are aware of Gilbert’s presence in Mars and his association with Aoléon. This again seems like some sort of ‘nail biting’ anticipation wherein the reader expects someone to object to Gilbert’s presence in Mars. Overall, a perfect second book to a series that poses more questions and more ways for the plot to develop and offers some serious character development so that the reader has to remember how every character looks and behaves. PLUSES AND MINUSES: Good writing, Lots of Graphic images. Once again, a different imagination! On the other hand: The whole book seems like a middle act which lays the groundwork for the next major act so no really new story. You could understand where things are going only if you are familiar with Part 1 of this saga. Too many new characters. But the reader just has to remember them all if there is to be any hope of understanding the subsequent books in the series. SPECIAL MENTION: As is expected in the series, whenever a scene is too difficult to visualise, the author has included a lot of graphics that are beautifully rendered so as to give a reader an idea exactly how the Martian city will look. Good if children who are reluctant readers pick up this book! VERDICT: If you read part one, understood and enjoyed it, read this and get ready for some more explanation in the rest of the series.

Aoléon The Martian Girl - Part 2 The Luminess of Mars is a fun book about the adventures of friends. The book not only takes you to a world totally unknown to us but it also shows the value of friendship.  I really like the fact that Book Two starts right where Book One left off. I enjoying reading series books. I like knowing the characters and learning more about them.  Isa is 11 and she was so excited that Book Two was available for her to read. When Isa speaks about Aoleon ~ I can see it in her eyes that she would love to be part of her journeys. Anoleon is a fun character and the series is a very fun read.  I truly feel that the series will be a young adult series that will be popular for years to come.

Gilbert and Aoleon are back in part two. This time Gilbert gets to see where Aoleon comes from. City of Luminon. It is a spectacular city. Gilbert is learning that even through he and Aoleon come from two different planets, they do have things in common like on Aoleon's planet, they also eat ice cream and pizza. There is just one problem...low milk supply. The cows have disappeared. Where Gilbert comes from, there is a large supply of cows in Nebraska. For now, Gilbert is just along for the adventure as he learns more about Luminon. I had have the chance to review this series. I am so glad I did. Yet, the only problem I have is that I am reading the books the way I am is that I only get to read the books in parts. I have read part 1 and now part 2. This is the problem. I like this series so much that I am having a hard time waiting to read the next part. Gilbert and Aoleon are a great pair. I like all of the mis-adventures that they have gotten into so far. Although I was expecting to learn a little more about the great mystery that is plaguing Luminon. I did not learn much other than it involves Luminon's milk supply. Before I end, I have to talk about the illustrations. I did not think they could get any better than in part 1 but Wow. They are just as good if not better. If this is possible. They really jump off the pages and this is hard to do when you are reading the book on a computer monitor. I feel like I am part of the "experience" and not just reading these books. I can't remember the last time that I have read books not just for the story but for the illustrations as well. I can't wait to get my hands on part 3.

Aoleon The Martian Girl is a middle grade sci fi story. This review is for part one of the book. I don't usually review this genre but thought I would give it a try. I really liked it and think that most children, boys or girls would enjoy the book. The main character is a Gilbert, young farm boy from Nebraska and a young Martian girl.  There are crop circles appearing in Mr.Johnson's fields and he thinks that Gilbert is the culprit, but that is not the case but Gilbert goes to investigate and finds Aoleon, a Martian girl just sitting within the crop circle. Now this is most peculiar as Gilbert has never seen such a thing as crop circles let alone a Martian girl. His curiosity is piqued though so he goes along with her on her saucer. Of course any young child enjoys a good adventure and so does Gilbert. I think it will be fun to see what adventures await him with Aoleon in the next chapters. The book is illustrated, by the author, and the pictures are very vivid and imaginative that will be sure to delight the reader. I think at this age pictures that go along with the story are a great thing. It gives the childs imagination something to give them an insight into the story.

You don't need to be a member of MUFON to read this book, but it does help to have a vigorous imagination. I've just read the ebook Aoléon: The Martian Girl (Part One: First Contact), written and illustrated by Brent LeVasseur, on my iPad mini (my eReader). This short book (under 100 pages) will have five parts, and is appropriate for middle-grade children. In the first chapter of Part One, we meet a young boy, Gilbert Sullivan, who often has disturbing dreams before crop circles appear on his neighbor's farm in Nebraska. Gilbert's interest in space and astronomy was sparked by mysterious crop circles that appeared in Old Farmer Neville Johnson's farm. One night, wide awake after his recurring nightmare, Gilbert hears his parents arguing downstairs, and wishes for an end to the trouble, and for an angel who would take him far away. When he notices a bright light outside, he decides to investigate. Gilbert ventures outside toward the distant, glowing light, through the wheat fields of the farm next door. Farmer Johnson, at the urging of his wife, also goes outside, with his three-legged dog, Tripod, and walks toward the brilliant light. Gilbert trips over someone in the field, and meets Aoléon, the Martian Girl. Strange-looking yet beautiful, with huge blue eyes and turquoise skin, this girl is from Mars (though Aoleon's website is accessible to Terrans like us). She has special powers which are remarkable to Gilbert. She seems to be able to read his mind, and her touch heals (she helps Tripod after he falls in a gopher hole). To escape from Farmer Johnson, who believes that vandals are making the crop circles, the Martian Girl brings Gilbert onto her spacecraft. Gilbert and Aoléon fly above the earth, travel through various countries, and experience many adventures together. As they soar toward the North Pole in Aoléon's spacecraft, Gilbert realizes that he's "been abducted by a nutty alien who's a speed freak". Gilbert's wish to leave home has come true, and his boring, ordinary life is a thing of the past. Aoléon: The Martian Girl features numerous large, brightly-colored pictures. Three-dimensional images are an integral part of the story, and I asked how the author created them. This is his reply: "I used The Foundry Modo to make all the character models, buildings, props such as weapons and ships, and to render them, using Modo's amazing built in renderer. The landscapes and the Planet Mars with the exclusion of Gilbert's farm field, were rendered using Planetside's Terragen 2/3. The final renders were color corrected and any effects such as lens flares and or depth-of-field blurs were done in both Adobe After Effects and Photoshop." Brent calls his pictures 3D renders. They are really fantastic! In fact, although I enjoyed the prose of the story, it's the images in this book that make it so appealing, at least to me. The book features many pictures of space, as well as flying cows, and other humorous things (and one-liners), that would translate well into film. This book has MOVIE written all over it. While I was reading it, I wondered if this was going to be a movie--maybe it's already in pre-production? It would be perfect as an animated film. I enjoyed the ideas in the book about dreams (or nightmares), telepathy and mind-reading, and the ability to heal through touch and thought (yes, I'm a bit "new age"). It's imaginative and clever, and suitable for folks like me (who don't read a great deal of science fiction), as well as for young adults drawn to sci-fi and adventure stories. At the end of the book there's a helpful glossary which defines some of the terms used in the book. There's also a related song, Another World ~ Aoléon: The Martian Girl Song, featuring Élan Noelle, on iTunes! I listened to it, and it's a pretty song (that would be great in the movie). Aoléon: The Martian Girl (Part One) will be available at the end of January 2015, but you can pre-order the book now, on Amazon. As for me, I look forward to reading Part Two!

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?

If I could only describe this book in one word I'd go with either joy or happy because most of the time I was reading it I was smiling and laughing. I read this book on PDF. I loved the story and the bright illustrations as did my son. I think this will be best in color and is great for all ages. The story leads to educational discussions making it great for homeschooling too.
