I love book talking The Assault, because all I have to say is "If aliens come to Earth and want just a TEENY bit of Australia, just say NO!" And this is why. The Bzadian forces are waiting until the Bering Strait freezes so they can launch their final assault on the U.S. To combat this, the Allied Combined Operations Group brings out the teenagers that were physically altered to look like the aliens. Lead by Lucky Chisnall, they launch lots of attacks against the Bzadian forces, and Lucky comes ...more

Attention may have some probably spoiler alert. I picked this book because I read the first one and I saw this was part two. It takes place in Australia which is now New Bzadia. The war between the humans and the Bzadian's are getting closer to the end the humans. So to buy another year the humans try to destroy there source of energy. That's how the book starts. Chisnall is still dynamic just not as much as the first book. He is more out-going, tough, fearless, and a little bit hard headed. "M ...more
Another good read for one who is interested in science fiction, much better than the first book in my opinion. Though I did find it short, is was sweet, and left me with a desire for more, but not too much. More mystery in this book, since there is another traitor on the human side of things, but no one knows who. Im pretty sure theres less action in this one, but the end, oh the end. Its probably one of the biggest cliff hanger Ive ever really recognized in a book. I really want to read the thi ...more

Ugh. Okay I'm kind of annoyed because I'd written like three paragraphs for this review and then my computer took a poop and shut down the internet on me and because I'm dumb and don't save it in word while I type I wasn't able to revive it.

Basically though I can tell you what the idea was of my original review: this was awesome. It's the second in a series, but it's great as a stand alone, which was perfect for me since I haven't read the first book. It was fast paced and was written in such a

Good YA book on war. Shows how confusing war is for children caught up in it. Definitely not for middle school or younger.

I thought that this book was excellent, fast-paced, and action-filled. This book is about a group of teenagers, going behind enemy lines and trying to help the humans that live on Earth take back their planet. They have to succeed in their mission or The Free Territories or the United States, will lose the Ice War and lose the Earth to a race of aliens call Bzadians. This book was really good exhilarating because it had a lot of explosions and military terms that you would have to know so the en ...more

Action packed from beginning to end, lots of fighting and killing, and the storyline in unique and interesting. Task Force is another great (sort of YA) action novel by Brian Falkner, that does follow along the line of the Halo Video Game. The kids that make up the Angel Recon Team have funny and weird personalities, their banter is comical and perfect for the age (teenagers).

I give this novel 5 stars because it is exactly as it created and intended, for the YA audience and more, with lots of mi
Another great and gripping book in the trilogy! Couldn't put it down.
Page-turning action. Weapons are well designed and the action is clear and understandable. Very Gripping.
