“Know that it won’t be long before this world will burn and so will everyone in it.”
“I won’t let it happen.”
“Why? Because you’re the Betrayer?” Koeing said, his voice penetrating Cole’s mind. “I can sense the change inside of you. Soon your body will be covered in sales. You’ll be a hideous monster like the rest of us, and when that happens, humanity will turn on you. You’ll be an outcast. A villain.”

Book: Domination (A C.H.A.O.S. Novel) by Jon S. Lewis, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2013

Genre: Science Fiction
Target Audience: Boys 13-20
Subjects: Aliens, Loss of parents, friendship, dating relationships, courage
Summary: There is no longer any doubt in anyone’s mind that the alien Thule are real enemies coming to destroy them and take over their world. Except, not all Thule are enemies. Some are fighting alongside the humans, wanting to stop Koeing and his followers from taking over earth they way they did Gathmara. It’s up to the Betrayer, Cole, to stop them. But finding the portal, finding Koeing and actually defeating him seem rather impossible. And it’s harder and harder to figure out who is friend and who is foe with an enemy that excels at shapeshifting.  
Notes: This is the third and final book in the C.H.A.O.S. novels, a series that explores the question of “What if aliens were real and were determined to take over our world?”. In this book, the secrets are out and Colt knows it’s up to him to save his world. As for spiritual content there is a bit more than other books. Colt and Oz offer forgiveness to one who has wronged them and Colt clings to a verse on a medallion his grandfather gave him. There still is not an element of God being the one to save them, the one to give them power and strength. That’s all up to the humans to do on their own strength, or rather the strength of a Thule in Colt’s case.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 2/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

1 Peter 2:11 – Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.

Thank you to Thomas Nelson/Booksneeze for giving me a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
