Review: Aoleon the Martian Girl Part 2 by Brent LeVasseur


Science Fiction Saga - Aoleon The Martian Girl - The Luminess of Mars 
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.

Part 2 picked up where part 1 left off. There is some action in it, but for the most part it wasnt too... thrilling, if thats the word. We meet Aoleon`s parents and see her school, and learn some new information about the Luminon.

Ive simply determined that this series is just a big science lesson. More descriptions that are hard to follow were used, but hey, Im learning something new.

The illustrations still dont appeal to me. Ive even had someone who was reading over my shoulder even mention something. They are kind of cool, but they are also really different and is not for everyone.

All in all, Im looking forward to what is in the next book. Its picking up, and I have high hopes for part 3.
