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.

Alienation is a book I'm sure Sci-fi fans will love. It's geared toward teen readers and with hoverboards, jetpacks, robots, and six-armed shape shifting aliens, it will definitely hold their interest. The action and suspense that's found on almost every page kept me at the edge of my seat, not wanting to put this book down.

I think readers will love Colt. He's a smart, brave young man who will do whatever it takes to protect the people he cares about most. I really enjoyed watching him grow as a character. The high-tech world he lives in is awesome (minus the aliens and humongous bugs =/). I can just imagine how all the futuristic gadgets looked and worked. It was pretty neat!

I don't usually read this genre, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this story. It's like a comic book in novel format and I just couldn't get enough. Even without having read InvasionI was still able to follow along with the story well. The author fills us in enough that we don't feel lost. I'm still planning on going back to read the first book. I want to get a little more of Colt's back story and find out what happened to his parents and how he became so well known.

Alienation was a very quick read with great pacing, non-stop action, and fantastic characters. I think that not only will the targeted audience love this book, but also adults. I had a great time reading this and am looking forward to the next book in the series.
