A Review - Invasion (by Jon Lewis)

Comic books come to life and earthly secrets are revealed in this fiction selection from Jon Lewis

I really enjoyed this book.  I am a big fan of Twilight and The Hunger Games so a fiction book about a teenage boy adventuring into an experience involving non-human characters appeals to me.  I read this book in the span of less than a week.  I couldn't put it down.  It wasn't too deep, but it covered all the bases of a good wholesome adventure. 

Even though it was published by Thomas Nelson, it wasn't a "churchy" book.  Sure there were themes in the book where you understood that the characters involved were Christian, but it wasn't a major theme.  I think that this book would be enjoyed by a teen/young adult audience as well as the adult audience that likes this genre of writing. 

The characters were developed well and the writer's descriptive words gave me the sense that I could picture the major players and scenes in my head so I felt like I was following right along with the book.  I love it when an author balances descriptiveness with content as to allow the reader some imaginative license but gives good enough details that not too much thinking is involved.  Jon Lewis did just this in Invasion. 

I am looking forward to reading the next installation of this series which came out this month.
