Editorial Reviews


"Humans are not alone in the universe. There are many alien species—some friendly, others not. Sixteen-year-old Colt McAllister has been tapped to join the C.H.A.O.S. Academy—where the most elite alien fighters are trained. This series is packed with technology, battles, and teen-boy wish fulfillment. Kelly Ryan Dolan reads energetically, with all the enthusiasm of a young man who is told that he doesn’t have to go to school anymore, that he can play with super-high-tech gadgets, and that he may be a prophesied savior of the world. This audiobook is filled with action, intrigue, and good-hearted earnestness. Dolan keeps up with the racing plot and wild twists, bringing willing listeners along for the ride."

Once you start reading, you won't want to put it down until the last page!
This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers, especially those who enjoyed the first book.
After buying and reading the first book, I will look forward to the third book in this series.

Alienation is the second book in the C.H.A.O.S. novels. Starting up where the first novel, Invasion, left off, Colt McAlister and his friends Oz and Danielle continue in the drama involving aliens and conspiracies.

Alienation is much like Invasion in regard to the simple writing skills, cheesy chapter breaks, and stiff dialogue between Colt and his friends. The plot has improved; it's a little more interesting now. Colt uncovers a shocking secret about his past and his potential future, several attempts have been made on his life, and the alien world is slowly opening up to Colt.

For a "Christian supernatural" novel, I feel like this should have more spiritual elements and views, especially since the book involves aliens. The only scene in the book with that was when Colt's grandpa gave him a medallion with a verse on it.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Format: Hardcover
From a perfect life to pure chaos, that is Colt McAlister has been dealt. Shortly after his 16th birthday his parents were both killed in a car crash. Just it wasn't any random accident, no it was a hit and run target mission put on by aliens. Since then Colt has moved to Arizona to live with his Grandfather Murdoch, who is a famous -if only in comic form- hero. In Invasion, book one of the CHAOS series, we learned of Colt's family history with a secret government branch that focuses on protecting earth from aliens forces who are planning on taking over earth. Now it is Colt's turn to continue the family legacy and join CHOAS Academy with his old friend Danielle Salazar and his new friend Oz Romero. As a team they must learn everything they can before the Thule aliens invade.
As if this wasn't enough Colt is constantly in the cross hairs of a master assassin. Watching your back isn't good enough when the hunter is a skin changer.

I when I picked Alienation up I had just finished two fairly large books, one 500 pages another 400 and was happy to see that Alienation was a grand total of only 274 pages. When more and more authors are going for long 400-800 page books I started to wonder, can an author create a gripping book in so few pages? Well, Jon S. Lewis did it.
We start Alienation where Invasion left off. Colt is living with his grandfather getting ready to leave for CHAOS-Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural-training.

I really got to know Colt through Alienation. He learns so many things about himself in the book, some good and some not so good things. We see how he is willing to stand up for what he thinks is right and protect those he cares about.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Alienation by Jon S. Lewis is part of the young adult fiction genre that is lead by Harry Potter and the next group of Percy Jackson and the Chronicles of Nick just to name a few. All of these novels have the stock plot line: where we have a teenage hero, a girl side kick and buddy, going to a special school, a fellow student who hates the hero, a quest to save the world, and so on.

All these novels use these basic plot devices but what makes them different is how the writer adds to these devices. The Harry Potter books grew with each novel and the Rowlings use layers of details to enrich her novels. Jackson and Nick books both have various levels of enrichment or details that make them stand apart from the others in this field. Alienation reads like a line drawing, going from piont A to piont B to C to D with the least amount of discriptive details needed. The story feels like an out line strung together with one or two sylable adjectives.

I know that this is the second novel in a trilogy. I have not read the first book. Plus I know that you shouldn't compare this to Harry Potter. Harry Potter is a "freak" in the lit. world. However when you shop for a car you compare cars trying to find the best car. This no different, this story just didn't hold my attention that well. I am an older person and this is for a younger reader but the author should not dumb down his book because of that.

There are several places where the author could have really used discription to enhanced the story, for example the hover board scenes or the jet pack scene. The action scenes seemed just tossed off.

Alienation wasn't my "cup of tea." It may be yours but not mine

Format: Hardcover
On ordering this book I didn't realise it is the second in a series and I found it took a while before I fully grasped what was going on.

The story is based around a sixteen year old boy and his friends Oz and Danielle and their battle with the Thule, (who are six armed shape shifters), the Thule have used up the resources on their home planet and want to take over earth. Cole discovers that he was injected as a child with Thule DNA and is the probable betrayer of the Thule and according to prophecy he will save the earth. While the Thule prepare for their invasion, Cole and his friends go into the CHAOS academy to be trained to defend earth. Colt doesn't know who can be trusted as it is clear, early on, that someone wants him dead and that he is being followed. Cole is also the likely replacement for the current head of CHAOS (which surprised me as he is only 16 years old, until I remembered this was a book for juveniles' who would probably have no issues with it). The present head sends a Thule assassin after him and the rest of the story is about Cole trying to avoid attempts to kill him which include rogue combat robots, a shape-shifting alien assassin, and high speed car chases
To sum up: this is a boys' book with a simple plot and from an adult perspective, a little shallow, however, I am sure a number of preteen/teenage boys will enjoy it.
