    This was a really nice story! I liked the characters and after a couple
    chapters, they are immediately likable (Cadence/JD/Orlando). They are so
    different but those differences really liven up the story. They are
    chosen teens that possess some sort of superpower when they meet Alan,
    an Alien, whom rather crashed into them at a mall, and basically says
    that some tribes chose Earth for a battlefield for their war, and these
    teens must help before any other destruction is done. Pretty intense
    right? The rest of the story is at times humorous, serious, and all
    around a fun read. There are characters that some might connect with, as
    I found myself did. The writing is flawless; everything was at a good
    pace, and I was just a little surprised, happy how it ended, but kinda
    wished for just a little more; good thing there is going to be a second
    book, and I look forward to it!

    Three teens, best friends Cadence and JD, and the loner Orlando

    Three teens, best friends Cadence and JD, and the loner Orlando happen to be sitting in the mall one day when something comes crashing through the roof. As they get closer they discover that it isn't a thing, but resembles a man, only he's not a man, but an alien. The catch is, no one can see him but Candace, JD, and Orlando. The alien, who they call Alan, proceeds to tell them that there is going to be a battle, and intergalactic battle, and this battle is going to take place on Earth. Not only that, these three are chosen to help be part of a team and will develop "special abilities," to help them as they prepare for this battle. A series of murders and missing teens leads Alan, and his team into an investigation to find out if this is the work of the enemy. Meanwhile, Orlando has had to move to another school after getting kicked out of his high school for fighting, but it just so happens that this new school might be one of the center hubs for the enemy's activities. As relationships and new friendships are formed, everyone is not always who or what they seem and the investigation begins to hit closer to home than they imagined.


    This book was a little different that what I expected. After seeing the cover and reading the blurb, I expected there to be a lot of alien activity, battles, and the like, but this centers more on the teens involved in the book, their lives, and them discovering their new abilities and learning how to use them. Probably about half-way through you start to see a little more about the actual alien involvement, though the story deals more with preparing the teams for the battle than the actual battle itself. The characters were cute and each had their own unique personality, and the interaction between them was quite humorous at times. Orlando is rather snarky and makes a lot of sarcastic comments. JD is more the hero type person, and Cadence is the brains of the bunch. We get to know Alan a little, but the alien factor, the battle and what is was actually about still remained somewhat vague, and I would have liked to have seen a little more clarity regarding that. The action did pick up somewhat about three-quarters into the book, as they infiltrated the enemy's camp, but up until that point, it was a little slow-paced and more focused on the teens themselves. The book ends in a bit of a cliff hanger, so there is obviously going to be more to the story. Overall, Battlefield is probably something that would appeal more to tweens and younger teens, and I would recommend it to that agegroup.

    For me, Battlefield was an enjoyable read. It is straight out

    For me, Battlefield was an enjoyable read. It is straight out fantasy fiction, but it was told in a believable manner, and it was easy to lose myself in the story. I liked our three teen main characters....their characters were done exceptionally well and I liked all three. I was not as enamoured with their alien, Alan with a long surname. Maybe he was supposed to be a weaker character, but it wasn't until near the end, that he seemed to grow into his position of leader. I did enjoy the storyline, there was enough action and adventure and enough of the main characters trying to determine how much of themselves to give to the cause. Because kids their age were dying and disappearing, they committed and agreed to help in the battleground Earth fight. I assume there will be a sequel or maybe even more as the book ended abruptly with Orlando's date with the perky Tait, blonde cheerleader. I wonder if he should trust her? Hmmmm....good book!

    Loved It!

    Battlefield is a fun and very entertaining story of an alien conflict coming to earth. I loved the characters and how a group of teenagers handle meeting an alien, developing special abilities, and fighting evil, all while trying to deal with the usual high school drama. I especially liked Orlando "Orly" and found his character to be very well written. I can't wait to see what happens next!
