Enter 1/19 - 2/7. RSVP for Party today!

The invasion was only the beginning . . .
After his parents were killed in a car accident, Colt McAllister was drawn into a world he thought only existed in comic books-one where mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles don't even scratch the surface.
Along with his best friends Oz and Danielle, Colt is now training at the secret Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural academy. But strange accidents seem to follow him. . . even with the security of the school grounds. What first seems random soon turns deadly. But who is targeting Colt?
As the alien invasions increase in frequency and force, C.H.A.O.S resources are taxed to the limit and they're forced to utilize the new recruits. In the midst of battle, Colt will discover some startling revelations . . . about himself, his friendship with Oz, and why he has been chosen to defeat this alien attack against earth.

Goodreads Summary

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.
