Colt McAlister, 16-year-old surfer dude extraordinaire, still can’t believe that his parents are dead. Murdered for exposing a biotechinical company’s plans to take over Earth, Colt moved in with his grandfather in Arizona and made friends with the son of the most successful alien-fighting force on the planet. He also reconnected with his lifelong friend Danielle, a computer genius, and together the trio has been tapped to attend the CHAOS military academy in the hopes of saving Earth from the alien forces struggling to take over. A friendly CHAOS agent informs Colt of a plot against his life, however, and it appears that the good guys have initiated it. With both the aliens and the humans gunning for Colt, who can he trust? Can he stay alive long enough to save the planet?
Written in the same fast-paced style as Invasion, readers will be amazed at Colt’s new revelations throughout Alienation. Beginning shortly after Invasion ended, Lewis gets new readers to the CHAOS series up to speed in the first chapter. The readers are kept on their toes throughout this intergalatic thriller as Colt struggles to battle aliens and robots alike – while learning who his true friends are.
Colt McAlister makes a wonderful hero – he’s honest, strong, and caring. His moral code appears to be developing, however, and he’s still learning where his faith and values lie. For teens who are searching for more information about God or the Bible’s take on alien life form, this book will not provide any information. For a teen who is looking for a wild ride through a fantasy world, however, Alienation delivers.
Lewis is an expert fantasy craftsman, and his comic book history comes to the fore in the CHAOS novels. By weaving together historical detail with technological advancements, Lewis makes even the shape-shifting Thule realistic. Not since the world of Harry Potter have I read a fantasy book with such complete attention to detail. I cannot wait to read the next installment in this series – but don’t take my word for it.
