Invasion (C.H.A.O.S. #1) by Jon S. Lewis

I love books that are like this. That hold so much promise for the future of the series and yet keep the reader wanting for more. The author has completed a well-written novel and well fleshed out characters that capture the reader from the beginning. It starts out in the middle of the action which enchanting in so many ways. Often when books have a lull in the first chapter or two, it loses readers almost immediately and so I was happy to see that this wasn't the case at all. The plot is very interesting, entwining a lot of qualities and items that fascinate a lot of people which only makes it that much more interesting. I really liked this book.

Colt was a character that I wasn't too sure about in the beginning as I was trying to grasp how his character would be in this story. His voice as a character grew a lot within the first chapter and I began to really like him as a character. I felt like I could relate to his original feeling about monsters because he really wasn't too certain about it at first, which is something that I could truthfully relate to. I feel like I would claim that there is no way possible for this to happen. Yet after he is introduced and acquainted to the idea, he seems to flourish in the situation, proving that he is not only knowledgeable about things but also that he is a strong fighter. In that chapter he proved to be more than a surfer and continues to throughout the story. But sadly he forgets everything that occurs and all that remains is a vague ideal of everything he did. That certainly didn't make his life any easier though once everything begins to get worse.

I found Danielle to be an adorable character. She was the type of friend that Colt needed with out all the emotional complication that comes with most friendships in this genre of literature. It is good that she is there when he faces the loss that no one wants to experience, for sure. They have been friends since they were toddlers, so I suppose that isn't any surprise. Once problems begin to arise though, she proves to be more than just a friend. She proves to be an expert hacker, just the type of person that Colt needs. I liked her character a lot. 

Oz is the type of character I think I would have expected to be the main character, simply because of his background. He is the son of the leader of C.H.A.O.S. which makes him the type of person that could either help or hinder the plot as well as the organization. However, he proves to be a worthwhile friend to Colt and perhaps something more for another main character. He is flirty and sarcastic, something that makes his scenes even more entertaining. He was pretty awesome.

It's a good book, so definitely check it out and see if it's the type of book you would like to read!

Domination
Domination - Jon S. Lewis Please note: This is the third book in the C.H.A.O.S trilogy and really should not be read as a stand alone. Since there is not much back-story given, one will end up missing out on a lot of information that may hinder the story.

Colt and his group are back together on a mission - a dangerous mission that could cost the team members their lives. This time it's serious and the Thule are wanting world domination. Can Colt stop them? With Oz expelled, Jonas with a secret, Colt's experimental blood transfusion and Pierce a difficult member, can the team survive their own problems, let alone save mankind?

Packed with page-turning action, "Domination" finishes the trilogy nicely, yet at the same time leaves a opening for another story! This story is full of alien fighting, some stunning reveals and tragedy, making it worth the wait.

Throughout the story, the main character, Colt, talks about his faith and knows that God will never leave him. It seems a bit odd at times, especially when they are at war, but then again, what better place to be to rely on God?

This story is mostly geared towards male teens with all the war and fighting. However, with Danielle and Lily involved, this may also appeal to teen girls who enjoy science fiction or action-packed stories.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley courtesy of Thomas Nelson. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion.

Alienation
Alienation - Jon S. Lewis Alienation is the second in the C.H.A.O.S. Series. I reviewed the first one, Invasion, last February. I have been looking forward to reading the second in the series all year. Alienation continues the adventures of Colt McAllister in the fight against the alien enemy that threatens our world. While waiting begin his studies at the academy, he finds out that someone is trying to kill him. You see, he is slated to be the next head of C.H.A.O.S. and lead the Earth to victory. There are also other secrets locked in his memories that he needs discover about himself. That is a lot of pressure on a 16 YO kid.

Alienation is filled with intrigue and action. It also features a lot of cool weapons and equipment that sound like they come straight out of a comic book. There is more of a peek into the relationship between Colt and his best friends, Danielle and Oz. We also meet some new characters and potential friends for the trio (both alien and human). The book ends in a little cliffhanger, so I look forward to the next installment. Any kid, middle grade and up, will love this series.

Invasion
Invasion - Jon S. Lewis I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book that I have read by Mr. Lewis. I may have to seek out some of his earlier works. He does a great job at sucking you right into the story. The characters are strong and likeable. It is filled with action. Since this is a first in a series, a large part of the book sets the background for the sequels that will follow. I liked how the author brought in some World War II mythology into the book. My only regret is that is ended too soon. I wanted more! I look forward to Colt's further advenures. This is a great novel for YA readers.
