Blog Tour: Aoleon The Martian Girl – First Contact by Brent LeVasseur

Title: Aoleon The Martian Girl – First ContactAoleon

Author: Brent LeVasseur

Publisher: Aoléon Press, AuthorBuzz

Published: January 31st, 2015

Rating: 4/5

This is fast paced science fiction adventure story aimed at fluent independent readers, ones that will be able to cope with words and concepts such as nebula, asteroid, elliptical and plasma-induced gravimetric force fields! Gilbert Sullivan (no, not O’Sullivan, definitely not a twentieth century pop star!) keeps having weird dreams that he knows actually mean something. Xena his cat seems to agree with him! When he spots a UFO landing he has to investigate only to discover it was bringing with it Aoleon, a Martian girl with whom he’ll have lots of adventures and help save the world! What with flying cows, being pursued by the US Airforce, visits to places like Paris, France and visits to Mars, things will never by the same for Gilbert! 

This is only the first part of the story and it is engaging, well written and enjoyable. Whilst it could be used as a story to read independently it could also be used by groups looking at the the language and specialist vocabulary used in the story. There are some excellent descriptions and the images throughout the book are brilliantly appropriate and add to the enjoyment of the story, especially as some of them are funny!  An entertaining read for more able readers to whom I have no hesitation in highly recommending this novel.

Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
