Book Review for “Aoleon the Martian Girl: The Hollow Moon”-Middle Grade Sci Fi

book 3

What the book is about: The Hollow Moon (Part 3 of 5) Spying on the Luminon, Aoléon and Gilbert uncover his plot to steal Earth’s milk cows. They make the disturbing discovery that the Martian leader plans to disrupt Mars’ galact supply. Hoping to reach the galactworks before the Luminon’s saboteur, the duo races to warn Aoléon’s father, Deimos, manager at the galactworks, that he is in danger. While still on the run, Aoléon takes her pilot’s exam so she can join the Martian intergalactic exploration fleet. During the test-run, however, something goes horribly wrong. The two are put in a life-threatening situation, and only Bizwat, Aoléon’s Procyon commando friend, can save them. Gilbert finally gets his chance to learn to skyboard, but the lesson turns into a test of skill as he and Aoléon are chased by the Royal Paladin Guards. Will they survive?

My Review: I was given a copy of “The Hollow Moon” in exchange for an honest review.

This is book three in the series and the adventure continues. We finally find out the true nature of the Martian leader and this book is packed with action. There is some violence in this book as there are a few fight scenes. Aoleon and Gilbert are forced into a plot that thickens with every page. The Martian girl series is a good choice for chapter books for middle graders as it is fast paced and full of colorful pictures that are more like movie stills than illustrations.

Great graphics, great humor, and all around sci fi fun.

I give this book four stars. I liked it.

I can recommend for ages 9-13, though adult sci fi fans, who are kids at heart, would enjoy it as well.

Book Review for “Prophet”-Christian Fiction/Fantasy

51WVZ++0FkL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]

So loved this book! I purchased it long ago and it has been sitting in my kindle. Had I known how great it was going to be a would have read it earlier. One of the best Christian fantasy I have read. This is a fiction/allegory that just impressed upon me how good God is and how much authority we really have, if we would only use it. Prophet has all the elements of a good fantasy, swords, intrigue, supernatural, and some romance. There is heart touching scenes, battle scenes, humorous dialogue, what more could you ask. Oh, I forgot the best part, no swearing or sex! Great for teens on up. I give it 5+ stars. Though it is the first in a trilogy, it can be read as a stand alone. I for one am moving right on to the next book.

Book Review for “Red River”- YA Dystopian

I was given a copy of “Red River” by the author, Kelly Van Hull, in exchange for an honest review. I have to first say that I love YA dystopian. They don’t seem to be quite as dark as adult dystopian, and these books by Kelly do not disappoint. I enjoyed both “Tent City” and this second book as well. I can recommend them for ages Jr. High and up. Good fiction writing, the main characters are teens and Kelly represents them well. The characters are well rounded. The setting is in the Bad Lands. A religious fanatic is in charge of the US and things are going downhill fast. A group of people are trying to stay alive in remote country. There are enough twists in the plot to keep you on your toes. I read this almost straight through. No swearing, the only sexual content is implied, there is fighting. I give it five stars. I loved the series. Red River finishes up (I think), the story line. I am looking forward to what else will be coming from this author

Book Review for “Shadow Soldier”- Military/Dystopian

511luOAWW4L._SS300_[1]

I loved this book! Military, dystopian, and some romance. A book for guys or gals. Written without swearing and sexual content (some implied), and some un-cheesy Christian content that does not distract from the story. Post Great War, the controlling government is set up in what used to be the US. One nameless soldier is the key. There is fighting and violence. I can recommend for ages 14 and up. A great read, and a favorite new author. This is the first in a series and I am looking forward to book two! Kept me on my seat! I give it a solid 5 stars.

Book Review for “Path of Darkness”- Fiction/Fantasy

I was given a copy of “Path of Darkness” book two of the “Seekers Burden” by the author, Mark Lein, in exchange for an honest review. This was a good fantasy. The first book in the series “An Emerging Threat,” set the foundation. this book continues with the characters, lands and peoples. Good writing, interesting plot. These are not stand alone books, you need to read the first to understand and book two ends pretty abruptly. I really liked it. I am looking forward to reading the rest. I can recommend to teens and up. No swearing and no sexual content, (no romance). There is violence and fighting. I give it 4 stars.

Book Review for “Me and Georgette”- Regency Fiction

What a fun read! I like Regency Romance and this one was not your typical storyline. A modern, 21st century Jewish career woman is thrown into the past. What a mixed up event. If you like Regency, you’ll love it. I give it 4 stars. I really liked it. I was given a copy of this book, by Story Cartel, in exchange for an honest review. I can recommend this to everyone. No sexual content and no swearing.
