Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 119 - Arabella and the Battle of Venus and Arabella of Mars by David D. Levine

Arabella and the Battle of Venus (The Adventures of Arabella Ashby)Arabella and the Battle of Venus by David D. Levine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Arabella returns with a new adventure. This time she is off to Venus to save her her fiancé, Captain Singh who has been captured by the French. Set in the early 1800's there is a mix of fantasy and historical fact in the story. Be advised that the heavy duty backstory and world building were done in Arabella of Mars so for the most enjoyment read that first. I found Arabella and the Battle of Venus to be a much darker book than Arabella of Mars. When I read the authors notes I though I saw why. That said like the first book it is filled with interesting characters, a strong tension filled plot and exciting action.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great heroine with an new take on space travel. Arabella starts on Mars, goes to Earth and returns to Mars. Her trips help develop the backstory and the world building. I loved Arabella and her take charge attitude. She lives in the 1800's and has many of the restriction that women of that time had to deal with. She never let that stop her. She wants to save her brother and takes a drastic step to warn him of the danger she is unaware of. Lots of action, tension and adventure set in a very interesting solar system.

I listened to this as an audio book and loved all the voices that the reader gave the characters.
