Invasion (A C.H.A.O.S. Novel)
Rating: 4 out of 5
Summary: Colt and his parents take a trip to D.C as a vacation, and so Colt can tour a military academy that he's been invited to attend. The thing is, Colt doesn't remember much about the visit because he was injected with a drug to forget. However, before school starts, Colt heads to the beach to go surfing, and he's attacked by something that reminds him of an alien from a Phantom Flyer comic book. The attack sends him to the hospital with a nasty head injury. Then, that evening, a police officer greets him at home to tell him, his parents have been killed in a car accident. At first, it seems like nothing more than an accident, that is, until he over hears a conversation his grandfather is having with a guest at his parents funeral. And, the kid Oz at his new school seems way too familiar and always seems to be hiding something from Colt. When the truth comes to light and Colt realizes that there is a secret government agency working to protect the planet from aliens, Colt realizes he plays a bigger role than he once thought.
My thoughts: This was a book I bought from Amazon when it was on sale last month. I just hadn't gotten around to reading it until a few days ago. With that being said, I was a little iffy on whether or not I would like this book because sci-fi novels really aren't my thing, and it did take me a bit of time to get into it, however I really liked the story line. For reference sake, I'll say this novel kind of reminds me of Men in Black. However, it doesn't share all of the same elements, just some basic ideas.
This book really has it all, government conspiracies, secret government agencies and corrupt corporations that are bent on destroying humanity or enslaving the population. Also, let's not forget teenage romance, friendships and high school. This edition also has some interesting sketches at the end so you can see what some aliens look like. This was a pretty good book. I'm a bit disappointed that the next one doesn't hit stores until January 2012!
