Tour: Alienation by Jon S. Lewis - Review & iPad 2 Giveaway

A C.H.A.O.S. Novel Book #2
Author: Jon S. Lewis
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 9781595547545
Genre: Juvenile Fiction, Science Fiction, General

About the Book:
After his parents were killed in a car accident, Colt McAllister was drawn into a world he thought only existed in comic books-one where mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles don't even scratch the surface. Along with his best friends Oz and Danielle, Colt is now training at the secret Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural academy. But strange accidents seem to follow him. . . even with the security of the school grounds. What first seems random soon turns deadly. But who is targeting Colt? As the alien invasions increase in frequency and force, C.H.A.O.S resources are taxed to the limit and they're forced to utilize the new recruits. In the midst of battle, Colt will discover some startling revelations . . . about himself, his friendship with Oz, and why he has been chosen to defeat this alien attack against earth.

My Thoughts:

Alienation is the second book in the C.H.A.O.S. series and like the first book, Invasion, it was a thrilling read. One of the few Christian fiction books geared towards teen males, this book will appeal because of the amount of action and comic book "feel" to the story line. Filled with aliens, fighting, good -vs- evil, a young hero and his friends, this will keep readers young and old as well as male and female, interested and on the edge of their seats!

Although this can be read as a stand-alone, I would strongly encourage the series to be read in order. There was so much that happened in Invasion, that one would appreciate Alienation even more reading the first book.

Jon S. Lewis spins a fascinating tale that really held my interest. I was a little surprised with the violence that was in the books, but then again, these are about war with the aliens. The Christian content is not overwhelming. In fact, it's quite subtle and comes across as normal in conversations and activities.

I am thrilled to see a clean read geared towards teen males. The market offers so much for the YA female so this not only refreshing but very exciting to me. I cannot wait to see what the next in the series holds in store for Colt, Oz and Danielle! This series comes highly recommended!
