Book Review: Alienation A C.H.A.O.S Novel

Alienation written by Jon S. Lewis is the science fiction novel of sixteen year old Colt McAlister.

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 the the CHAOS Military academy along with his best friends Oz and Danielle . They'll be trained to defend Earth against a swarm of alien shape shifters 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, he is alienated and on the run.

In a world of high tech gear, shape shifting aliens, stimulated reality, and hover boards, Colt must step into his true destiny before our world falls into chaos.

As you may have noticed, Alienation is very different from the books I normally read and review. Aliens, space crafts and such are strange topics for a girl who reads Amish novels, among other genres. I did enjoy this novel though.

Though the events of this book were strange, I enjoyed the humor. I didn't feel lost, which is great because this book is the second in the C.H.A.O.S trilogy. The author's style of writing is intriguing and extremely descriptive. I do warn you though, there was a bit of violence which included a few car chases.

On the other hand, there is  biblical truth weaved into the novel. Colt's grandfather gives him a medallion upon joining the academy. The words God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble are inscribed on it. The verse in Psalms 46:11 is a key in Colt's life.

I was also intrigued by the cliff hanger chapter endings. I finished this book very quickly because of its enthralling plot

I'd recommend this book to teenagers who are interested in science fiction. It may be too much for younger readers, but is well paced.

If you'd like to purchase and read Alienation you can purchase it from Amazon, Amazon Kindle, CBD and e-Reader.

I received this book from Litfuse publicity in exchange for my honest review.
