**I received an advanced copy of Aoléon The Martian Girl: A Science Fiction and Fantasy Saga - Part 1 by Brent LeVasseur from iRead Book Tours in exchange for my honest review. **
I mentioned earlier this year that I've been trying to expand my reading to try reading a few books that I wouldn't normally pick up. Well, this book is definitely one of those! Aoleon is geared toward young adults/teenagers but I actually really enjoyed it as well. I would consider it a science fiction book because it included alien, UFOs and the like.
This book is only part one of the story so it ends in a cliffhanger but even with that, it was a really good story. The illustrations are incredible. They are fun, brightly colored and vivid and I think they really added to the story. I think this would really appeal to young adults for that reason.
I don't want to give you the full story but it follows a young country boy in his adventure with Aoleon. They go for quite a trip! If you teach middle-grade children, have middle-grade children or would enjoy a quick sci-fi, check it out!
