This is the first novel in the C.H.A.O.S. Trilogy written by comic book author, Jon Lewis. It introduces the reader to sixteen-year-old Colt whose parents die in soon into the book, and he is sent to live with his grandfather in Arizona where he meets up with his long time friend, Danielle and new friend Oz to find out how his parent died.
Their search reveals that a vast conspiracy by Trident Biotect. Their chips implanted in people’s brains to help them with seizures actually turns them into robots that are controlled by a group of evil aliens intent on destroying mankind and making earth their home. Colt’s mother was just about to expose these fiends before she was killed. Now Colt and his friends have to stop this plot before it’s too late for everyone.
I was a little disappointed in the spiritual aspect of this book. The characters went to church, but that was about as far as it went. On a positive note, the characters in this book are loyal, trustworthy, and kind. Colt chooses to do what is right even when he doesn’t want to, and when the opportunity presents itself, he is willing to lay down his life for his friends.
This book grabs your attention from the beginning making for a quick read. It is full of strange creatures, high-tech equipment, and fast-past action, yet their isn’t any negative aspects like crude jokes or rebellious teenagers. Perfect for a young boy who doesn’t like reading.
I got this book from Thomas Nelson’s Booksneeze blog program. These opinions are my own.
