The CHAOS Trilogy: Alienation

"Earth's Last Line of Defense Against the Coming Alien Invasion is 16-Year-Old Surfer Colt McAlister.
But Before He Can Save the World,
He Has to Survive the Day."
Bookworm's Ranking - 4 Worms

Storyline - Colt is getting ready to attend CHAOS but, soon, things start to come up that disrupt more of his life; a virus is spreading, an assassin is trying to kill him, and a family secret has just been discovered. As he attends CHAOS, Colt has to discover who he can trust and survive the assassination attempts. The risk of his family secret being discovered is on the rise, which could be deadly.

Author - Jon S. Lewis

Publisher - Thomas Nelson

Age Group - 13 or 14 and up

Content - Colt believes in God but his faith is not mentioned very much. His grandfather supports and protects him. Colt's friends stand by him and vise versa. Danielle is a computer hacker. Some criminals got accused of a crime they didn't commit and it sounds like the good guys planted the evidence.

Personal Opinion - This book was really good. The story moved nicely and the action and adventure was enticing. I was brought into the story quite well and was interested the whole time (I even understood what was going on without reading the first book [it might have helped that I read a bunch of reviews] but I still don't recommend doing that). I liked the short comic book to catch the reader up on what was happening before going into the first chapter. The story could have gone deeper in spots and expanded more on both of the two main plots of the story. In fact, I think this book would have been great if it had been split into two and the main plots separated. Other than that, it was a good book and I'm looking forward to the next one.
