From the publisher: Colt McAlister is drawn into a war against things he thought only existed in comic books. After a car wreck takes the lives of his parents, Colt moves to Arizona to stay with his grandfather. There, an informant tells him that his parents were actually murdered because his mom, a journalist, was getting ready to write a story exposing Trident Industries. Along with Oz and Danielle, his new comrades at Chandler High, Colt vows to uncover the truth. But the more they learn, the more bizarre reality becomes. Mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles only scratch the surface of what they discover. Colt is recruited by a secret organization called the Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural. But the battle isn't just against an out-of-control giant corporation. A gateway to another world is opening, and the invasion has already begun.
I enjoy a good light sci-fi book. Usually that means I pick up teen fiction when I want this genre of book. Invasion by Jon Lewis definitely fits the bill. Aliens, conspiracy, comic books, yep, definitely teen sci-fi.
This book was an easy read, but also had a lot of depth to the main characters and the story line. It was fast paced and action oriented. It’s classified as Christian, and I enjoyed that part as well. It wasn’t overdone, but a good overview of the main character, Colt’s, struggle to find God in the midst of his difficult circumstances.
I am excited to read the next book, but this book could easily stand on its own.
