Invasion by Jon S. Lewis

What if those comics from the 1940s were true? What if there really were aliens from other planets helping the Nazis? What if there really was a secret organization, C.H.A.O.S., aimed at protecting the world from alien invasion?
This is exactly the world into which teenager Colt McAlister is thrust. His parents had recently died in an automobile accident so he is sent to live with his grandfather.
Bit by bit Colt discovers the truth. His parents were killed because his mother was writing an expose on Trident Biotech. Trident had been implanting chips into human brains, chips supposedly to control epilepsy, Parkinson’s, etc. But these chips were really used by the alien owners of Trident to control the humans. And his grandfather. Colt finds out his grandfather was the real Phantom Flyer of comic book fame. In fact, the comic books were just a way to take away the attention from the real situation at the time.
Trident Biotech is getting ready to complete their plan to wipe out all the humans on earth. Will Colt and his teen friends be able to foil the aliens before it is too late?

This is science fiction the way I remember it as a teen! Reptilian aliens with six arms. Heroes with jet packs. Bad aliens wanting to take over earth. Good humans willing to sacrifice their lives to keep that from happening. Even though this book is for teens, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I look forward to reading the next in the series.

A discussion guide at the end makes this book a great choice for teen reading groups.
