CHAPPAQUA, N.Y., Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Action! Suspense! Danger! These are the elements that keep young readers turning pages.  Invasion, by Jon S. Lewis, delivers exactly the kind of dramatic tension teens crave.  Kids who've grown up with comic book superheroes battling evil foes will find plenty to love in this sci-fi fantasy novel, the first book in Thomas Nelson's CHAOS series for young adults,

With crackling plot twists, cliffhanger chapter endings, cyber attacks, alien invaders, and an undercurrent of teen romance, Invasion features plenty to keep even the most reluctant reader entranced.  From death-defying flights by jet-pack to a motorcycle that takes to the sky, the action never lets up.

When sixteen-year-old Colt McAllister's parents are killed in a car crash, he learns it was no accident--his mother, a journalist, was writing an expose of the powerful biotech corporation Trident Industries.  Now, Colt has been targeted, and he and his friends Oz and Danielle find themselves battling the same sinister forces that took his parents' lives.  A gateway between worlds has been opened, and Earth is in mortal danger.

"I'm a firm believer that the passions of our youth remain the passions in our adult lives," says the author. "Growing up, comic books opened my eyes to the vast imaginations of the men and women who brought the likes of Superman and the Fantastic Four to life. I wanted to emulate them from an early age, which is why comic books always find a way into every story I write. Besides, comic books keep me in Neverland with J.M. Barrie, and I don't ever want to leave and grow old."

Jon S. Lewis is the coauthor of the Grey Griffins trilogy, which has sold over 500,000 copies, and the Grey Griffins Clockwork Chronicles. He also writes for the DC COMICS family of publishers. He lives with his family in Arizona.
