Aoléon The Martian Girl by Brent LeVasseur
A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga – Part 1: First Contact
Category: Middle-Grade, 94 pages
Genre: Science-fiction and Fantasy
Publisher: Aoléon Press
Release date: January 31, 2015
Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door.
Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force.
Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school).
And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows.
This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.
If only he can survive.

Aoléon The Martian Girl by Brent LeVasseur is a wonderfully illustrated, super fun adventure book that I really enjoyed! There was non-stop action and I loved that the illustrations really brought the story to life in an amazing way. I really liked that the author was also the illustrator – you know that the pictures you’re seeing are exactly how the author envisioned the characters and the settings. I love reading YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy books and this one did not disappoint. I am really looking forward to reading more in this series! My tween daughter loved the story as well – I think it’s great from middle grade through adult readers. There is something in it for everyone, and it was a lot of fun to read this as a family.
