Synopsis:

Earth's last line of defense against the coming alien invasion is a 16-year-old surfer. But before Colt McAlister can save the world, he has to survive the day.

All Colt wants to do is return to his old life-where aliens don't exist, where mankind hasn't been targeted for destruction, and where his parents are still alive. Unfortunately life doesn't work that way.


The United States government believes Colt holds the key to our survival, so they're sending him to the C.H.A.O.S. Military Academy along with his best friends Oz and Danielle. There they'll be trained to defend Earth against a swarm of alien shapeshifters known as the Thule. But someone is trying to eliminate Colt before he can lead that charge. Shocked to learn about key events in his past and unsure who he can trust, Colt is alienated and on the run.


In a world of high-tech gear, shape-shifting aliens, simulated reality, and hoverboards, Colt must step into his true destiny before our world falls in chaos.

My rating: ★★★★★

It’s finally time for Colt, Oz, and Danielle to go to the CHAOS Academy! What is CHAOS, you might be asking. “CHAOS—Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural. They were a bit like the CIA or FBI, but instead of going after drug cartels or spying on the Russians, they protected the world from nightmares like bioengineered monsters, alien life forms, and sparkling vampires.” Ha! I loved that last one, me being an ex-Twilight Freak and all ;) Anyway, so students in this school are trained to do all this secret spy stuff to save the world and what not. Pretty cool, eh? Well not everything is cool here, especially since someone is trying to kill Colt…even at school! All these “accidents” nearly got Colt killed, and the people Colt thought he could trust, don’t seem so trustworthy now.

I absolutely loved this book! Such a great series so far…definitely one of my favorites :) I found this book to be very interesting and entertaining, and the story itself was suspenseful…I couldn’t wait to see how things would go down! It had a great plot, characters, and descriptions. I would recommend this series to sci-fi fans, but really, anyone can read it!

Can’t wait to read the 3rd book!

  1. How cool that you're reading the C.H.A.O.S. novels too! They get so little coverage on other blogs... Great review! I have to say that I did like Invasion better. Alienation was a great read though (:

    I got an email that you commented on my Amazon Community post, but for some reason I can't see it. It doesn't show up in spam either :\ I'll try to fix it. Thanks for commenting though! (:
