When I get invitations for books to review, I always run the YA books by my boys before requesting them. Alienation was one they all three wanted! Youngest was the one who loved it the most. He is a slow reader, just has more to do with his time than sit still and read a book. After all there are video games to be played, soccer balls to be kicked and girls to check out. He sat with this book from beginning to end, giving me the “mooooommmmm” when I would tell him to go do something… you know the one, its usually reserved for when he is knee deep in COD: Modern Warfare and I tell him to walk the dogs or something… well he pulled that “moooommmmm” out while he was reading “Alienation”. that is about the best praise I can give!
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.
