That is how I feel when I'm reading The Chaos Trilogy by Jon S. Lewis.
Lewis takes the comic book aspect, mixes in some weird aliens like Star Trek, and focuses on a few teenagers that's are headed to a school for training to be a secret agent. Let's just say, it's awesome (at least, for me, a huge... science fiction fanatic).
I read the first novel in this series, Invasion, about a year ago, and I remember I really enjoyed it. So, when I started Alienation about ten months later, I was completely lost. I had forgotten everything that had happened (my mind getting stuffed with other information). However, the book started off with a bang and just rolled on from there. It was great.
Alienation kept the whole this-is-like-a-comic-book-but-it's-really-a-novel thing up very well throughout the whole story. There was a lot of intense action like in science fiction movies and...well... comic books. The high-tech gadgets (hover boards, jet packs, computers, weapons, etc) were so cool. It sealed the deal that aliens really could be attacking Earth (really big, creepy aliens).

Another aspect I liked was bringing God into. Lewis did a good job. He didn't stray from the science fiction idea, but he brought God into it. He mashed up two of my favorite things (comic books and God). I thought it was brilliant when Colt was able to pray to God and trust Him to get him through the hard times.
All-in-all very good book. I'd recommend the others. And I can't wait to read the next one.
I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishing through booksneeze.com. I was required to give my honest opinion of the book, nothing more.
