Domination

Book description: Domination is book #3 in the C.H.A.O.S trilogy. Please note that certain plot points and characters might be a continuation from the prior books in the series.
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.

Objectionable:Injuries, deaths, a few fighting and battles, aliens, lies and deception. And a couple brief discussions/thoughts about a girl or dating. 1-3 cheek kisses.


Thoughts:I rather wish that I had been able to reread the second book or at least look at it before starting this one. But I didn't, I just jumped in and started reading. Luckily I remembered a good deal and there was a little bit of reviewing done at the beginning. Although at some points I did get a bit confused or there was something that had happened in a past book and I didn't remember it, it usually wasn't that important and I wasn't completely lost or anything. So someone could pick up this book and just read it without reading the previous books, I wouldn't recommend it though. Reading the first books makes more sense :P I was expecting a big battle for the ending of this series and in reality the big battle only lasted a page or so. Maybe the author simply wanted to tie it up quickly but the ending felt rushed and crammed while the rest of the book was detailed and well laid out. Not to be negative(I don't know what was going on in his life or head, but I do know that endings can be hard), but in my opinion this ending really didn't fit in with the rest of the book and wasn't the best, rather cliche and was possibly unrealistic...despite several deaths.

Now that I'm done with that, this book was a good and enjoyable book.  Although the whole book wasn't battle and there were only five or so battle scenes I did feel the excitement and thrill of adventure in every page. I adore how there is so much super hero/comic book as a big part of the story line. Well that and the alien thing too. It makes this series unique and very interesting! This is the final book where the bad guy is taken down and the hero triumphs. But before that there is the terror of the enemy's final strike, when it will come and the hurry to get prepared as much as possible before that final battle. Colt is doubting if he'll be able to do much against the Thule attack and what his role will be as the Betrayer...and how many people will be lost before all the pain and attacks stop. My only problem with this book was that the ending felt off, I really enjoyed and flew through the rest of this book. The plot was interesting and almost every chapter ended making me want to continue on. I would recommend this book to tweens and teens who enjoy science fiction, aliens and a good adventure with a true hero :)
Characters:This book had some wonderful characters that seemed to come off the page and into real life. I really liked the three main characters, they weren't perfect but had some great qualities and morals. They were unique and I really liked them, they were what had stood out the most from when I had read the other two books. There were some other good ones and overall the characters were nicely done :)
Cover:I like it. Maybe not as much as the second, which is my favorite of the series. But I like the color and the sinister robots slightly hidden in the background :D
Stars:3.6
