Review - Invasion (Jon S. Lewis)

With Invasion Christian author Jon S. Lewis presents an adventurous science fiction novel in the first installment of his A C.H.A.O.S. Novel series.
What starts off with the death of Colt McAlister's parents in a car accident, soon develops into a fast paced story with a thrilling premise of conspiracy theory meets alien invasion. Together with his friends Dani and Oz, Colt soon finds out that this accident was actual murder and that there is still more at risk than the world could possibly imagine, because the invasion already started.
This book offers not only likable and well devised characters – especially the glimpse you get into Colt's emotional state after his parent's death is very well written – but the reader is also supplied with a lot of stunning action scenes and fun dialogues. And while there is a bit of a love story included too, it certainly doesn't get in the way of the main thing – an action packed plot.
Last but not least – written by a Christian author, the book does not fall into the category of Christian literature, with only few mentions of bible studies or going to church throughout the story.
While many YA books can be read by adults too, and I admittedly really liked this novel, I recommend it mostly for a younger audience.
In short: An enjoyable read with science fiction elements for everyone who likes action packed stories!

3/5 stars
