Back Cover Blurb:

Crop circles magically appear in Farmer Johnson’s field. A mysterious light sweeps over the night sky and awakens Farmer Johnson and Gilbert, the boy next door.

Curious, Gilbert ventures out to discover the source of the light and stumbles into a beautiful Martian girl sitting in a crop circle. Farmer Johnson also investigates the strange light, and thinking that Gilbert and Aoléon are vandals, he chases them. But they sprint to Aoléon’s saucer and escape only to be pursued by the U.S. Air Force.

Gilbert has never been attacked by swarms of giant killer robots. Never met strange aliens from other worlds. Never skyboarded across a megalopolis hidden deep inside an extinct volcano. Never trekked across a vast Martian desert. And never been eaten alive by a gigantic slor (well, almost never, unless you count Billy the fat bully at school).

And luckily, he has never ever confronted an evil ruler of Mars bent on conquering the Earth to steal its cows.

Never...until now!

This may be the adventure Gilbert always wished for.

If only he can survive.

About​ the Author:

He also enjoys various sports such as skiing, running, and exospheric skydiving.

My Reivew:

What a fantastic read! This fast paced, action packed story kept my attention throughout. LeVasseur’s vivid descriptions not only paint a picture for the readers but also draw you deep into this world. The way that the chapters and locales were set up I felt as if I were really on a mission with the characters. It captured my imagination. The chaos in this story is absolutely priceless. LeVasseur takes young teens causing trouble to an entirely new level. This is all wrapped around a rather in-depth story of life & leadership. There is also a technical aspect to the tale that made the story oh-so-real and possible. As an adult I enjoyed this, but it is a story that will captivate younger readers. This author’s inviting storytelling combined with the amazingly SciFi-esque graphics will keep them riveted.

The graphics in this story were fantastic. They definitely enhanced the story for me. As enjoyable as these graphics are on an older black & white ereader, in colour they’re absolutely enchanting. This was an exquisitely visual story. Between the author’s fantastic writing and the actual images that are part of the story I could easily picture it all.

I think the main character summed it up perfectly when he said, ‘Zoikers! That’s so cool!’ This story is a fantastic start to a series sure to capture the heart & the imagination. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
