Domination, C.H.A.O.S. Series #3
What a great series!
I am seriously in love with this book. It has everything I need to find a book great. Interesting storyline, amazing characters, it is unpredictable and unique, full of fascinating mythology, with amazing writing and a believeable and heartwarmig romance. It also has a lot of blood, tears, pain and betrayal and death so it is frustrating until the end but I think that this book is a great start to what I am sure will be a wonderful series. I must compliment Hashway on the world she has built and also on the creativity with which she writes and the way she made this book amazing with her vision. I love all that I have learned in this book about Medusa and I hope to learn even more in the future books about mythology because that is one of the many reasons this book is now one of my top favorites of the year. I anxiously wait for the sequel, Stalked by death, that comes out in the summer of 2013.

Domination of the soul & the world must be stopped
The C.H.A.O.S. Trilogy
By Jon S. Lewis
Colt McAlister is humanities hope for survival against the Thule and their need to eradicate the human race. But the Thule have been here for years though most of us have been unaware of their existence until recently. But the American government has been aware of their existence since the Second World War when the Thule assisted Hilter in his attempt at world dominance.
Colt is the first and only success in the government's attempt to create a Thule enhanced human super soldier. The fate of the world is placed on the shoulders of a 16 year old young man who finds it hard to believe that he can be the longed for hope of an entire planet.
As Colt struggles with the changes that the Thule blood is causing within him, he along with the other CHAOS cadets is training for a mission that will take them to Gathmara - the Thule homeworld. Can they destroy Koenig and his alliance with the Thule factions before the mass invasion takes place and the human race is destroyed by a seemingly unstoppable enemy who will destroy his own people just to intimidate his opposition?
As Koenig attempts to turn Colt, so that he will betray humanity, Colt clings to the promise that God is his refuge and strength, a present help in times of trouble. Leaning on God Colt is able to overcome his fears, even to the point that he is willing to sacrifice himself to save his friends and his planet. The battle comes with a cost as Phantom Squad loses several of their own.
Domination is an exciting conclusion to the CHAOS trilogy and is not to be missed. You don't have to read the first two books in the series, but it is highly recommended that you do so to fully enjoy and follow the story.
The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book through BookSneeze for this review, but all opinions express are my own.

Riveting. When I received this book off of BookSneeze I had no idea it was the 3rd book in the trilogy, and I was really nervous about reading Domination because I hadnÃ¢ÂÂt read the first two in the trilogy in the series-Invasion and Alienation. But because I had already requested it there wasnÃ¢ÂÂt much I could do except read the book and review it accordingly. And now, IÃ¢ÂÂm diligently working toward getting my hands on the first two books. (Yeah, IÃ¢ÂÂm going to wash the cars a lot for that $5) IÃ¢ÂÂm here to tell you that you Domination is a perfectly acceptable stand alone book. Mr. Lewis was very good at bringing in the characters and previous episodes quickly so you knew what was going on.
This book was AMAZING! I mean, wow, IÃ¢ÂÂm wishing for more. Every little thing that kept me away from this book was met with annoyance and with lots of complaining (sorry, about that Mom). The story was written so well I felt like I was really there, everything felt so real. I really really really really hope the CHAOS trilogy is going to be made into a movie because, I swear, I will be one of the first in the movie theater, sitting there with my Coke and popcorn with my eyeballs as wide as they can go staring eagerly at the screen. In short, IÃ¢ÂÂll look like all the girls and boys at The Hunger Games premiere.
I loved how Colt was Christian, but he wasnÃ¢ÂÂt all stuck up and pious about it, you know? He still messed up and he wasnÃ¢ÂÂt perfect, but he still loved God and trusted in God to get him through his problems.
IÃ¢ÂÂm begging you guys, if you love alien war-fare please donÃ¢ÂÂt miss out on this book. It is E-P-I-C.

Domination: #3 C.H.A.O.S.
by Jon S. Lewis
Domination is the third book in a trilogy about Colt McAlister, once a normal teen, but now a superhero infused with alien blood. Colt, along with Oz, Danielle, and other friends are the hope of the world to prevent an alien invasion and takeover by the Thule. Join the Phantom Squad as they take on Koenig, a Thule leader that has been secretly held underneath their Academy, and who is about to escape and destroy Earth as he invades through an unknown portal. The Phantom Squad must race against time to save each other and their planet.
I have read Invasion and Alienation, the first two novels in this series, so I enjoyed the end of the story with Domination. This is a great teen read and will interest anyone that enjoys fantasy and sci-fi. Lewis weaves belief in God throughout the story with the medallion around Colt's neck as a constant reminder. Many fantasy novels have allegory, but Lewis incorporates God as still in control of Earth and the Thule, and ultimately, the universe. I recommend this series to anyone.
