Book Review for “Aoleon The Martian Girl: Part Five”- Middle Grade Sci Fi

 

 

book 5

What the book is about: Will Aoléon and Gilbert discover the truth at last? It’s been one difficult challenge after another, but Aoléon, Gilbert and their friends (Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot) make it to their final destination: the secret Martian base located under the Great Pyramid of Cydonia. But their adventure isn’t over yet. Not by a long shot! Not only must they infiltrate a secret underground facility guarded by legions of sentrybots to find and rescue Aoléon’s parents, but they also must face their toughest test yet. Can Gilbert help Aoléon rescue her parents and stop the Martian invasion once and for all? Read the exciting conclusion to the Aoléon the Martian Girl series to find out!

My Review: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the last and final installment of the “Martian Girl” Series. All five were fun and pack full of action and great graphics. The pictures are not your run of the mill illustrations, but bright computer animated through out. There is some violence, no swearing, and loads of age appropriate humor. This one closes the series with our heroes saving not only earth, but Mars as well. Gilbert finally decides, after all the danger and adventure, that home isn’t so bad, even with homework and milking the cows.

I liked it and gave it four stars.

I can recommend for ages 9-13, unless you love sci fi and are a kid at heart.

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 “Aoleon The Martian Girl: Science Fiction Saga Part 2 The Luminess of Mars”- Middle Grade Sci Fi

24834713

What the book is about: Aoléon and Gilbert are entrusted with a mission from PAX, a wanted criminal and leader of the Martian resistance movement. He wants them to investigate the Luminon of Mars, who he suspects is planning an invasion of Earth to steal its milk cows. Gilbert has an encounter with the Luminess (the mate of the Luminon) and discovers something strange about her. The undercover duo is chased by the Royal Paladin Guard.

At Aoléon’s home, Gilbert meets Aoléon’s sister Una, mother Phobos and father Deimos as well as her overzealous pet, Zoot. He is also introduced to Bizwat, a covert operator and Procyon Commando, who uses his Saturn Pizza delivery job as a cover.

Gilbert then gets to visit Aoléon’s school, the Martian Space Academy, where he encounters Aoléon’s nemesis, Charm Lepton, and her friend Quarkina. While there, he attends a history lecture on the Martian people by Plutarch Xenocrates. After class, Gilbert and Aoléon get to do some intense training in zero-G and Gilbert is treated to a Psi-ball match between Martian Space Academy and Martian Science Academy.

My Review: I was given a copy of “Aoleon The Martian Girl: Science Fiction Saga – Part 2 The Luminess of Mars” in exchange for an honest review.
This is book two of the series. We continue on with Gilbert on Mars with Aoleon. In this book we see more about what Martian life is like, including school. We meet new characters, some evil and some funny. The same humor continues in this one. There is a reference to a “Viagrian who gets easily excited.” I give this one three stars, I liked it. (I did have an issue with some of the pictures showing the Martian girls, though fully clothed, but with clear nipple outlines…and this is for middle grade age). Still great story and wonderful graphics.
The plot thickens.
I can recommend for ages 9-13.

Book Review for “Planet Bound”- Science Fiction

41URxD9Vc5L._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_[1]

I was given a copy of “Planet Bound” by the author, A. Marie Dinsmore, in exchange for an honest review. I liked the book. I would have liked the story better if the characters were a little more rounded. Also we are introduced to so many that have little or no part to play other than showing that they feel rejected, which is a common theme in this book. Potential for a good story. The storyline itself is interesting. Human kind is on a quest to find habitable planets. Tough female lead. I liked it. I give it three stars. High School age and up. Some language.

Book Review for “A Warrior’s Legacy” – Christian Science Fiction/Fantasy

http://www.amazon.com/Warriors-Legacy-Warrior-Kind-ebook/dp/B00G79KZ4Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1389969851&sr=1-1&keywords=a+warrior%27s+legacy

Guy Stanton III has done the almost impossible, he has continued a series where things jut keep getting better! Loved book three of “The Warrior Kind” series. I was given the first three books in exchange for an honest review. I liked all so much that I have purchased the remaining book as well as one in his other series. Even though there are some grammatical errors, and part of the story is told in the first person, while other parts are not, I still have to give five stars. I pretty much read this one straight through. Wonderful new world and creatures, great Sci fi and fantasy all wrapped up from a Christian view point. Faith, family and perseverance are the main themes of these books. Enough action and battle for the guys, with enough romance for the girls! Teens and up for my reading recommendation.

Book Review for “A Warrior’s Redemption”- Christian Fiction

http://www.amazon.com/Warriors-Redemption-Warrior-Kind-ebook/dp/B00G72MF6M/ref=sr_1_3?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1388413396&sr=1-3&keywords=a+warrior%27s+redemption

I really liked “A Warrior’s Redemption.” I was given a copy by the author, Guy Stanton III, in exchange for an honest review. It is unapologetically Christian. However the beliefs and the scriptures are all part of the story and does not come across as cheesy or trite. Several places inspired me to be more open and bold about my own faith! The story about an alternate society on another planet, founded by earthlings that fled before the flood. They have forsworn modern technology and live as in medieval times. The story contains fighting and battles of an epic scale. There is espionage, love, family, loyalty and lots of evil characters. Not a “chick” book. Can not recommend for readers younger than high school due to mature content. This is the first in the series, and I am definitely reading the rest.

Book Review for “Armored Hearts” Fiction-Steampunk

http://www.amazon.com/Armored-Hearts-Fantasy-Steampunk-Melissa-ebook/dp/B00CL12T8M/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1383929120&sr=1-1&keywords=armored+hearts

This book has several of my favorite elements, romance, steampunk, fae folk and a tad bit of the Bible thrown in. And it works! Great writing. Hoping this is only the first in a series. Though it ended in a good place it is left open for so much more. I enjoyed it. Great for teens and up. Not corny or cheesy in it’s use of the Bible. Just in simple terms in simple language as the beliefs of the people during the times. Great job. I give the book 5 stars.
