-My random thoughts-
Can I say, WOW.  I was thrilled from cover to cover.  It held me spellbound, and made me stay up till dark hours, reading. And, -I wish to express this to the world- I am know on the lookout for people with glowing red eyes.  Beware, People of earth, they are among us!

-Publisher's description-
Colt McAlister is drawn into a war against things he thought only existed in comic books.
After a car wreck takes the lives of his parents, Colt moves to Arizona to stay with his grandfather. There, an informant tells him that his parents were actually murdered because his mom, a journalist, was getting ready to write a story exposing Trident Industries.

Along with Oz and Danielle, his new comrades at Chandler High, Colt vows to uncover the truth. But the more they learn, the more bizarre reality becomes. Mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles only scratch the surface of what they discover.

Colt is recruited by a secret organization called the Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural. But the battle isn't just against an out-of-control giant corporation. A gateway to another world is opening, and the invasion has already begun.

-Info to know-

Author:  Jon S. Lewis

My recommended age:   11+

Their recommended age: 11+

Publisher:   Thomas Nelson

Number of pages:  336

·         Characters:  Mr. Lewis did really well.  Well, he did on EVERYTHING.  Characters included.  I don't think they were any boring or cookie cutter characters in the bunch.  All were their own selves, unique, amazing, and true to life.  Plus, I have some favorites...Lt. Lohr is cool, Colt is, amazing, Dani is wonderful, and Oz just can't be beat.  Plus, I know some one in real life who is a lot like Oz, so that gets him a brownie point.

·         Plot:  I had no idea that what happened in the end would, but, the ending was, was, I'm running out of adjectives here! Ok, let me put it bluntly, this book is so freaking awesome, I want you to go to Amazon right now, and buy it out of stock.  No, I'm not getting paid for this.

·         Writing:  From what I've already said, do you think I'm gonna have anything bad to say?

·         Cover:  Amazing, like the rest of the book.

·         Ending: It gave my happy thrills.  I mean, it was beyond amazing.  Plus, I love the Phantom Flyer's appearance!! (oops...spoiler!)

·         World building   Earth, which is already built, but the other worlds, which we didn't get into much, were well constucted.  This isn't as flaming and heartfelt, but I'm running out of unused adjectives here, peoples...I used them all up at the beginning.




Are you kidding?  The whole book is one big pro!

Romance and sexual content:
Colt gets a crush on this girl, but he is very, well, he doesn't do anything.  Nothing happens, no kissing, and a friend-to-friend hug is given, but I didn't get any red flags. 

Colt's parents are assassinated.
There is an Alien race trying to destroy earth by controlling our minds.
And the controlled people kill on command.

Drugs and drink:

This, my friends, is the hard part.  Oh, I am going to give it as high a rating as I can go, but, sadly, 5 is the highest.   Bully for me and for Invasion.  I'm giving this as high as possible, a 5, but, I'mm giving it a 100% approval!

Do you read Sci-fi?
