Aoleon The Martian Girl Part 2 - The Luminess Of Mars

Aoléon The Martian Girl: Part 2 The Luminess Of Mars – Book Review

If your child loves galactic space adventures and you are looking for a unique story to pique your reluctant middle grade reader’s interest, chances are, they’ll be fascinated by Aoléon The Martian Girl – the 5-part science-fiction/fantasy saga that’s both written and illustrated by Brent LeVasseur!

Aoléon The Martian Girl: Part 2 The Luminess Of Mars is a direct continuation of the story we were first introduced to in Aoléon The Martian Girl: Part 1, First Contact. If you have not read Part 1, then you simply must go back and begin your adventure there as this is not a standalone book!

Part 2 of this story answers the age-old question, “What is it like to live on Mars?”

All of the action in this book takes place entirely on Mars, with Aoléon introducing her Terran (Earth) friend Gilbert to all aspects of Martian society, including its political, educational and social structure, as well as dining and recreational pursuits.

What Gilbert soon discovers is that Mars is a frightening, friendly, familiar and foreign planet to visit – a place where things aren’t always what you’d expect them to be!

Here are a few of the fascinating discoveries that Gilbert makes during Part 2 of the series:

  • Gilbert turns his nose up when Aoléon’s mom offers him galact for dinner – but is delighted to discover that pizza is available on all civilized worlds!
     
  • Bullies exist everywhere – even on Mars! At the Martian Space Academy, Gilbert learns how Aoléon deals with the less-than-pleasant Charm and her buddy Quarkina.
     
  • Life did not originate on Earth or Mars – as Gilbert learns in a highly realistic and interactive history lesson.

There’s a lot more that Gilbert discovers during his time on Mars – but his most exciting and frightening encounter happens when he meets the Luminess. The Luminess Of Mars is the spouse of the Luminon and matriarch – their leader.

A terrifying telepathic encounter with the Luminess gives him a glimpse into the dangers of what lies ahead as they progress on the mission they received in Book 1, First Contact.

Aoléon The Martian Girl: Part 2 The Luminess Of Mars takes us deeper into the unique world and story that Brent has created and provides us with a foundation for the adventures that are still to come. The further we progress into the story, the more Brent’s illustrations illuminate the wonder of what Gilbert is experiencing as he absorbs everything there is to learn about his Martian friend and her world.

If you and your child are ready to partake in one of the most unique science fiction sagas to be found, then pick up your copy of Aoléon The Martian Girl and meet a character who is bound to become this generation’s favorite Martian!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
