“There are places on planet earth, where common sense doesn't apply.”

----Toba Beta, an Indonesian author

Brent LeVasseur, an American science fiction author, pens his very fist children's science fiction series, Aoléon The Martian Girl, and the second book, in the series, The Hollow Moon- Aoléon The Martian Girl, follows the adventures of a regular middle-grade farm boy with a Martian girl to her planet, Mars where they fall victim to some of the greatest and thrilling adventures.

LeVasseur picks up this story where we left off in segment 2. The intensity of the tale is ramping up and readers will be held captive throughout. And the deeper into this world we go, the deeper in trouble Gilbert & Aoleon seem to find themselves. I had such a blast on this adventure with them. They are becoming very well rounded and enjoyable characters.

LeVasseur brings us fully into the Martian world, letting us see and understand the government workings. I loved how we finally got to see the

Luminon is hungry for world dominion. He wants to take the rebels out. He has a plan that affects the milk supply. Aoleon and Gilbert hear the plan and try to stop Luminon before he can complete his plan. Yet, they find themselves in way over their heads. Can they get out of the predicament that they find themselves in before it is too late?

OMG, I am having such an enjoyable time reading this series. It is not just for the younger readers. This is due to Mr. LeVasseur. He does not write doen to

In Part one we saw how Gilbert met Aoleon. In Part two we were introduced to life on Mars. The pace is hotting up in the third part of the series. Gilbert and Aoleon find out about the plan to steal Earth’s cows, which means that the Galact plant where Aoleon’s father is Manager is a target. As they try to warn him they find themselves in grave danger. The descriptions don’t do the book justice and the illustrations will surely blow you away. I can’t imagine where the author gets his ideas as ju ...more

The cover art of the third installment features Gilbert riding upon a hoverboard with the backdrop of the beautiful Martian city to which Aoléon brought him far away from a Nebraska farm. The previous book in this series ended after a psi-ball match, with Aoléon, Gilbert, and others celebrating the match at a pizza place. Chapter Nine of the franchise, book number three continuing its chapter numbering from prior books instead of standardly resetting it like most written sequels, ope

The Story Thus Far....

This is Book Three in a five book story arc. If you're here and you haven't read the first two books, you probably want to go to them. (They're at "Aoleon The Martian Girl: Science Fiction Saga - Part 1 First Contact" and "Aoleon The Martian Girl: Science Fiction Saga - Part 2 - The Luminess of Mars").

By now we've established our hero, Earthboy Gilbert, and our heroine, Martian girl Aoleon. They are on a mission for the Mars Resistance to stop a plot by evil Luminion to inv

Where is the author getting the ideas for these Martians? Just when you think you've seen all the colorful Martian creatures, here comes "Luminon." He's a really powerful force--and ugly, to boot. He has 4 fingers, and looks a lot like one of the aliens from an Star Trek episode. (The original series--remember the episode where the short, cuddly alien uses a manikin to make himself look more scary? Well, Luminon looks like the scary manikin.) Another bizarre set of Martians include Sisyphus, "He ...more

The third book has more action than the first 2 stories combined and it was awesome. I'll insert snippets of what my kids said while we were reading Part 3, the Hollow Moon.

Gilbert & Aoleon sneaked into Luminon's palace and saw their ugly leader, Luminon interrogating & sentencing a rebel spy. (The Luminon is cruel, he must be thrown to the wolves! - my 7 year old uttered). Gilbert & Aoleon also overheard that they were being hunted by Luminon because he learned of their connivance with the fugi

Aoleon the martian girl is a series that slowly grows on you. Though it is a middle grade sci fi novel, it is enjoyable all the same. Already having read parts one and two of the series, the third part is understandable and the story is easy to follow. While the first and second part concentrated mostly on the relationship between Aoleon and Gilbert and his introduction to the Martian civilisation, with occasional hints about a revolution taking place, part three has some racy scenes and thrill ...more

Aoléon The Martian Girl: Part 3 The Hollow Moon marks the mid-point in the Aoleon The Martian Girl series and it's by far the most exciting book in the Brent LeVasseur series to date.

The further you get into these books, the more zany and addictive the whole storyline becomes!

The Hollow Moon builds upon everything that you've learned about Aoléon, Gilbert, and the political, social and cultural climate of Mars to date. If you haven't read the first two books in the series, trust me - you need to

Electrifying adventure filled with atomic explosions, Psionic guns, and hideous Draconian monsters – that just sums up this book. It looked like the writer finally decided to step on that pace pedal and dive right into the plot line with this book. While the first two books focused more on the characters individually this book, the third in the series, focuses more on the actual plot where in the leadership of Mars plans to capture Earth to obtain their source of milk.

So excited to continue on with Aoleon and the Martian Girl! Honestly, I love how this book is in so many separate parts. I think it makes it a lot easier to read through the story, and like I said before it would make things a lot easier for my middle school students. I also enjoy how each part has its own story within itself, that adds to the whole plot once they are all together. I was not sure how this book could get any better, but then I read part 3. The story really picked up in this part, ...more

This is the third book in a series of five that I have read from this author. You can read my review of the first book HERE and review of the second book HERE. This is a middle grade book full of sci-fi kinds of adventure. This book does pick up where the last two left off so you would certainly want to read them in succession.

I have enjoyed reading and reviewing Aoleon the Martian Girl Parts One and Two. Part Three begins at the exact point where Part Two left off. The pace and adventure level really picks up. The threat that Gilbert and Aoleon face is more serious and they must take greater risks.

The chapter about Aoleon's pilot test was very exciting, as Aoleon and Gilbert encountered an unexpected event during her test. I found the way that telepathic communication worked, especially between the two friends, to be

Part Three of this saga was really intense and full of action, which is definitely going to be appealing to a middle grade reader. Aoleon and Gilbert make a discover about this planet and their milk supply, which answers a few questions that were raised previously. They also find themselves in a very scary situation while Aoleon is taking her flight test. I had no idea how it would all resolve and was surprised at the twist. And finally, Gilbert gets to skyboard for the first time...only to be c ...more

This story has absolutely captivated. When I was invited to receive a copy in exchange for an honest review, I was a bit skeptical as I started in on Aolean the Martian Girl-Part 1: First Contact. However, I could not get over how incredible the art work turned out. But as I read the story, I found something that made this such a hit. All the best cartoons (in my opinion) absolutely enthrall the younger audience; yet it is when there is clever subtext woven in that an adult can appreciate that t ...more

This is an amazing book. The graphics are like looking at a cross between art work, 3d animation and pictures. The eyes were so vivid that I forgot I was looking at an alien. Part 3 is about saving the milk supply, and warning its protectors in time. I really like that the author uses descriptive words. My favorite example of this is "Zoot shot his suction-cup tongue out and used it like a grappling hook to hoist himself up to the head of the bot where he could attack the saboteur".

Aoleon and Gilbert find themselves in more hair-raising adventures including explosions, psionic gun blasts, and a hideous drooling monster.

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

This is the third book in a series. In the first 2 books, Aoléon and Gilbert met on Earth and she took him to her home on Mars after they were chased by a neighbor of Gilbert’s. On Mars, he learned about the Martians’ way of life. He also learned that there is a resistance movement to investigate the Luminon (the learder) of Mars because the resistance believes he’s planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows.

Part 3 opens with their objective, sneaking in to spy on the Luminon. Its full of more action than the other two parts, slowly reaching its climax. There were less of the... non important parts, and more of their objective. We are introduced to another race of aliens and discovered secret plots and treason.

The images still get to me. I have determined that the scenery images are prettier, and much better than the images of people. The ones of people just look awkward, but I like them a little

I may be running out of words to describe just how fun and wonderful this series is. In part 3, Brent doesn't let the reader down but keeps the adventures coming. The pacing is still nice and quick so as not to lose the younger readers but the imagination is still top notch! The illustrations will still capture that same imagination and before you know it, you'll be eagerly looking for part four. Luckily for me, I already have it and it's time to get reading it!
