    The thing I loved about Alienation was the retro comic book feel

    The thing I loved about Alienation was the retro comic book feel. Lewis started out wanting to illustrate comic books and it shows in the non-stop action and short, tightly-plotted chapters. My favorite character is Colt's Grandfather, *semi-spoiler alert* a.k.a. the Phantom Flyer, a WWII hero who everyone believes is just a comic book character. *End semi-spoiler* I think that if Captain America hadn't crashed into that iceberg and slept for fifty-some years, he would be like Colt's Grandpa. The characters are fun, the aliens are scary, and the action is non-stop. I can't wait to see what happens in Domination!

    action-packed alien adventure

    The earth is in danger of invasion and total destruction from the shape-shifting aliens known as Thules. It is up to three teenagers who each has his/her own way of utilizing their skills to aid in the salvation of the whole world.

    Nothing rarely beats the first, and in this series, I still do feel that the first book was way better. But there are certain points in this book that made it a worthwhile read nevertheless. Here we find out more about the interesting characters we have come to know in the first book and understand them better. The interaction between the three kids were still chuckle-worthy. The action sequences are all rather engaging as well. The strange creatures are, well, strange--but in that uniquely amusing kind of way. The twists and turns are affecting and effective in making me want to turn the pages no matter how many times I tell myself, "This is the last chapter for today."

    In other words, reading Jon S. Lewis was a fun and exciting ride, much like the first one. The alien invasion plot has been expanded, and it was like reading a comic book in prose form. The narrative were not too long, but descriptive enough to help me form the images in my head and watch them reel like in an action-packed movie. I can hardly wait for the third book in this series.

    My copy was sent to me for free by the booksneeze review program. :)

    Live To Read

    Colt, the main character, is being hunted-literally. The book starts and ends with action, the reader can look forward to a fast-paced book that will leave him/her at the edge of his/her seat. It helps to have read the first in the series to fully understand the plot and current events, though the author does fill in the reader to a point.

    Colt, Danielle, and Oz have a closer knit friendship and the reader will enjoy watching that friendship continue to grow and develop, their characters changed along with it. Colt is certainly the focus, his intelligence, wit, and bravery keeps him alive and in a position to still save the planet. The other secondary characters, besides the antagonist, feel more like fillers, but they have a function too as the reader will find out! The events of this book are fast-paced, there are plenty of action scenes and the unsettling mystery as to who is trying to kill Colt will keep the reader entertained.

    The reader will get to know more of Colt's background and why he is a VIP, integral to humanity. The plot begins to tie together much better and the reader will begin to see the pattern. The antagonist is not the run-of-the-mill type; the antagonist is portrayed as a cold-hearted, intelligent killer who will stop an nothing. This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers, especially those who enjoyed the first book.

    Alienation by Jon S. Lewis is the second novel in the new young adult fictional C.H.A.O.S. trilogy series. In light of the popular culture topic of alien invasions seen in countless movies and new TV series, this timely book is sure to appeal to young audiences. This book is second in ther series, so obviously reader will probably get the most out of this work if they had read the first novel. The science fiction plot will certainly hold the attention of teenaged readers. The chapters are short and simple. The youing teenage hero of the story is involved in a conspiracy involving the government and aliens. He must follow his destiny and save the world.

    This book integrates the popular genre of the comic book- novel hybrid. Before the first chapter begins, there is a comic book excerpt- with authentic vintage styled text and cartoons. At the end of the book, a "Classified Top Secret" report is contained- a virtual "Digital Sketchbook" of characters drawn on an iphone background to simulate an electronic database.

    As a blogger for booksneeze I recieved this book for the purpose of writing this review. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Alienation by Jon S Lewis

    Good evening, fellow bookworms! At least, I¿m assuming that you¿re a bookworm, seeing as you¿ve come to a blog that is pretty much strictly for book reviews! Anyway, I¿ve come here tonight to tell you all about this new book I¿ve gotten: ¿Alienation¿ by Jon S. Lewis. Before I get started, though, I need to let you know that I got this book for free from the Thomas Nelson Publishing Company through the Booksneeze Blogger program, in exchange for an honest review. Anything that I say is truly my opinion. Now that that is over, let me tell you about this amazing book. Now, to be quite honest, I¿ve never really identified myself as a ¿comic book¿ person. My brother and father are, but I am not. So when I got this book, and saw that it was introduced with a comic, I must admit I was slightly leery. But when I actually got the prose, I was pleasantly surprised. The adrenaline-laced action scenes and exciting descriptions and dialogue made this book seem more like a graphic novel in prose. I was truly impressed, and if you like fast-paced reads or comic books, I would suggest this book. Four out of five stars!
