For young people who like sci-fi, the plot involves defeating war-mongering aliens who want to destroy all mankind. These aliens can change shapes and masquerade as humans. The heroes continually wonder who can be trusted The aliens have opened a gateway between other planets and earth that must be found and closed..
Sixteen-year old Colt McAlister has been specially designated to understand and fight these aliens. But his ability to know them also makes him susceptible to joining them. With the help of God, he resists as best he can.
Colt is expected to save humanity from these aliens along with his friends. Colt respects his peers, but sometimes those he trusts turn out to be enemies. A surprise twist late in the story complicates the question of trust.
Although book three of this series, enough back-story is included to inform readers about motives and events affecting the characters and plot. Probably to add reality to the story, from time to time, present day items, such as orange sodas, enter the story. The main characters act as fairly normal teenagers when not involved in battles.
The story has action and stress on nearly every page, keeping readers involved and the pace fast. The ending is reminiscent of Lord of the Rings.
