Alienation by Jon Lewis Book Tour and Giveaway Post!

I am excited to be part of this Alienation Book Tour held by Litfuse! Alienation is a new young adult science fiction novel by the creative Jon Lewis. I received a paper back version of this book for free in return for my review and participation in this book tour. It was my pleasure to read this action packed book, so please continue reading for my review and your chance to win an IPad2!!

Title: Alienation
Author: Jon S. Lewis
Series: C.H.A.O.S. #2
Published: January 2012
Genres: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, YA
My Rating:
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.

Alienation is the second action packed book in the C.H.A.O.S series by Jon Lewis. I was first introduced to this book when I signed up for the book tour through Litfuse but after reading about it, I knew it was going to be a fun read. I was a little hesitant when I received the book because I had not yet read the first book in the series but it turns out I had no reason to worry. The author did a wonderful job of filling the reader in, and although I hope you read the series from the beginning, I never felt like I didn’t know what was going on.
Alienation brought a fun, dangerous, and creative sci-fi world to life right before my eyes. In the first book in the series, Colt’s parents died and he was introduced to a world of spies, jet-packs, aliens, and all kinds of murderous creatures that he thought only existed in comic books. Colt was left to live with his grandfather who happens to be a legend at C.H.A.O.S, the Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural, where Colt and his friends are being sent to train.
Colt really pulled on my heart strings. He has already been through so much and now he has to leave his grandfather and love interest to go try to save the world. That’s a lot to put on the shoulders of a teenager. When Colt finds out he is being targeted by a hit man (or hit alien), he doesn’t know who he can trust. When they finally arrive at the C.H.A.O.S training center, after many close attempts on Colt’s life, they are introduced to inventions they never knew existed.
Learning about the C.H.A.O.S training center was my favorite part of the book! It took me back to the first time I read Harry Potter and was amazed by how magical Hogwarts was. The center was full of hover boards, awesome temperature changing and form fitting uniforms, identifying goggles, and communicating wristwatches! With the help of some old friends, new teachers, and his grandfather Colt works to catch who 
has been targeting him. Please join in the Alienation fun and put this series on your to-read list!

I really loved this cover! It gives you a glimpse at the world you will experience by reading Alienation but the shadows allows mystery and ambiguity so you are free to imagine your own version of the world Lewis has created. I give this Sci-fi cover an A.

While I was hoping for more of a climax, this book was very entertaining and fun and I recommend it to any lover of Sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal YA’s. This book is great for teens but would be a great read for any age. I hope you give it a try :)
