Domination (C.H.A.O.S. #3)
Release Date: 04/16/13
THEIR GOAL IS SIMPLE: TOTAL DOMINATION.
With six arms and jaws that can snap a man in two, the warmongering race of aliens known as the Thule has conquered every planet they’ve attacked.
And now their invasion of Earth has begun.
Humanity’s only hope springs from a mysterious Thule legend about a Betrayer, who they believe will rise up and destroy their people. The American government tried to manufacture their own Betrayer by injecting children with Thule blood but time after time the experiment failed . . . until Colt McAlister.
A decade later, Colt is a 16-year-old cadet at the CHAOS Military Academy where he’s training to defend mankind. But he’s afraid that the alien blood may be turning him into a Thule—and he’s beginning to suspect that fulfilling his role as the Betrayer may cost him everything.
Experience a cosmic battle filled with high-tech gear, gateways to other planets, and ultimate stakes. Not everyone will survive. But heroes will rise up and step into their destiny in this earth-shaking conclusion to the C.H.A.O.S trilogy.
Alienation (C.H.A.O.S. #2)
Earth's last line of defense against the coming alien invasion is 16-year-old surfer Colt McAlister. But before he can save the world, he has to survive the day. All Colt wants to do is return to his old life . . . where aliens don't exist . . . where mankind hasn't been targeted for destruction . . . and where his parents are still alive. Unfortunately life doesn't work that way. The United States government believes Colt holds the key to our survival, so they're sending him to the CHAOS Military Academy along with his best friends Oz and Danielle. There they'll be trained to defend Earth against a swarm of alien shape shifters known as the Thule. But someone is trying to eliminate Colt before he can lead that charge. Shocked to learn about key events in his past and unsure who he can trust, he is alienated and on the run. In a world of high-tech gear, shape-shifting aliens, simulated reality, and hover boards, Colt must step into his true destiny before our world falls into chaos.
Invasion (C.H.A.O.S. #1)
He didn't ask for the job, but now all that stands between us and chaos... is Colt
Colt McAlister was having the summer of his life. He spent his days surfing and his nights playing guitar on the beach with friends. He even met a girl and got his first car. But everything changes when his parents are killed in a freak accident.
He's forced to leave his old life behind and move to Arizona with his grandfather. The only person he knows at the new high school is a childhood friend named Dani. And Oz, a guy he's sure he's never met but who is strangely familiar.
But what if his parents' death wasn't an accident? His mother, an investigative reporter, was going to expose a secret mind-control program run by one of the world's largest companies. Before she could release the story, what if agents from Trident Biotech made sure she couldn't go public?
Vowing to uncover the truth, Colt gets drawn into a secret world of aliens, shapeshifters, flying motorcycles, and invisible gateways.
The Invasion has begun.
Welcome author Jon S. Lewis as he talks about...
I was walking down Broadway in the heart of New York city the other day and when I looked up I saw a sign that stood out from all the others because it actually wrapped around a building. It was for a new SyFy television show called Defiance.
It won’t be long until new episodes of TNT’s Falling Skies are back on the air. The Cartoon Network has Ben 10 and Young Justice, where the last season was about a race of aliens called the Reach (with quite a few Martians to boot).
Let’s not forget the four blockbuster movies that will be hitting theaters this summer: Stephanie Meyer’s The Host, Oblivion (Tom Cruise), After Earth (Will Smith) and Elysium (Matt Damon).
So what’s the deal with aliens? Are we as a culture fearful of an actual alien invasion? Or maybe the extraterrestrials are supposed to represent terrorists or natural disasters?
My guess is that we can credit George Lucas. The generation in charge of Hollywood grew up as the Star Wars generation. Our parents played cowboys and Indians, but we played Star Wars, pretending to be part of the Empire or the Rebel Alliance. We bought the toys as kids and then again as adults when episodes I-III were released.
Now we’re geared up for episode VII, and George Lucas has called on J.J. Abrams to help him craft the next generation of Star Wars stories. But until then, we have some exciting new worlds to explore. The CHAOS Trilogy is my corner of the Sci-Fi galaxy, and I can only hope it captures a little of that magic.
