Week 51 Review: Invasion

From Goodreads:
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 Review:
Epic book. Just epic. A bit sad with the deaths, and the hurts, but there's romance, and there's goodness, and it's a genuinely good book! Really enjoyed it!

It's more for the 10-14 boy set, with action, and a boy narrator, but it can still be read by pretty much anybody because it has action, mystery, paranormal/supernatural, and aliens, and if you liked any Stargate movie or show, or Doctor Who, then you'll enjoy this book! It was really good!

Loved the romance, and how it was maybe developing there, which is appropriate given the ages of the characters, and yeah, it was really cute!

There was a lot of heroics, and heroes, and the mentions of WW11 was really nice, and in a way, helped to get used to the horror of the war. The one character survived it, and his missions were made pretty much public knowledge. So I really enjoyed that!

This was a really good book, if a bit boyish for me. Oh, well. I can deal, and I can't wait to read Alienation! Check it out on Amazon!
