The CHAOS Trilogy: Invaision

"He Didn't Ask to be a Hero,
But Now All that Stands
Between Us and Chaos
... is Colt."
Bookworm's Ranking - 4 Worms

Storyline - Colt is an average 16 year old with parents that love him and a hobby of surfing. Then an accident takes his parents away and changes everything. But, not everyone thinks it was an accident. When he moves to Arizona to live with his grandfather, Colt gets a call from a stranger claiming that his parents were murdered and that major company, which his mother was writing an article about, was responsible. Learning aliens exist and riding flying motorcycles isn't helping Colt's sanity but with the help of his friends, Oz and Danielle, he just might live through the assassination attempts. Maybe.

Author - Jon S. Lewis
Publisher - Thomas Nelson

Age Group - 14 and up

Content - Colt does what is right but he and his friends look to adults very minimally for help and usually do things themselves to take care of what is going on. When things started getting out of hand Colt did go to his Grandfather once but still tried to handle things himself. Oz is really laid back and can be rude. Danielle can and does hack into computers. Colt goes to a girl's room and she tells him something about her family but someone points out that it was inappropriate to go to her room, even though nothing happened or was even thought.

Personal Opinion - This was an enjoyable story but I like book 2 the best so far. Don't get me wrong, this book had lots of action, a well put together story and mystery, and diverse, interesting characters but something clicked for me in the second. I also thought there would be a bit more Christian elements to the story (went to church once and learned a christian song for a future service) but I appreciated that it was clean and how the situation with Colt going to a girl's room, even though nothing happened, was handled. I think more examples like this need to be in today's literature. Fun book and can't wait to read book 3. Almost want to read book 2 again to read it somewhat in order but I think I will be okay. :)
