Synopsis:

He didn't ask for the job, but now all that stands between us and chaos... is Colt.

Colt McAlister was having the summer of his life. He spent his days surfing and his nights playing guitar on the beach with friends. He even met a girl and got his first car. But everything changes when his parents are killed in a freak accident.


He's forced to leave his old life behind and move to Arizona with his grandfather. The only person he knows at the new high school is a childhood friend named Dani. And Oz, a guy he's sure he's never met but who is strangely familiar.


But what if his parents' death wasn't an accident? His mother, an investigative reporter, was going to expose a secret mind-control program run by one of the world's largest companies. Before she could release the story, what if agents from Trident Biotech made sure she couldn't go public?


Vowing to uncover the truth, Colt gets drawn into a secret world of aliens, shapeshifters, flying motorcycles, and invisible gateways.


The Invasion has begun.

My rating: ★★★★★

After the death of his parents, 16-year-old Colt moves from California to Arizona to live with his grandfather. In no time, Colt's life is turned upside down. Suspicions arise dealing with the death of his parents. Colt was told that they died in a car accident, but this car crash may not be just an "accident." You see, Colt's mom found out about a mind control program being run by a large company. Her goal was to publish an article about this for everyone to read. Unfortunately, she never got the chance.

Now it's up to Colt and his friends, Oz Romero and Danielle, to stop the company from achieving this goal, all while trying to not get killed by aliens...yes, you read correctly, aliens!

I LOVED this book!! I have not read very many sci-fi books, but this one was just amazing! I really liked all the diverse characters and creatures, the story line was very entertaining and kept me interested throughout the book, and all the cool futuristic gadgetry.

The story itself was quite intense, suspenseful, and even funny at times. At first I didn't know what to expect, but, as I said already, I found it very entertaining and interesting and I just could not put the darn book down until I finished!

There were little pictures at the end of the book of the characters and even some of the aliens which I really liked... it helped me picture them better :)

I would recommend this book to those who like science fiction. And I actually told my 13-year-old brother that he should read this book. He has been reading the Alex Rider series about this teenage spy or somethin' and Invasion is kinda similar, so I figured that he'd like it too.

And there wasn't really anything I didn't like :)

Although this isn't the typical book I would read, it has become one of my favorites!
