Set in 2030, the story follow a group of six military teenagers who have been specifically trained for this mission: to infiltrate the base of the alien race, the Bzadians, who have taken over most of the world. However, the mission becomes a lot more dangerous once the team leader learns that there is a traitor within the group. Now, he must get his team through this mission all while trying to find out who between is the traitor to the human race.

All the characters are interesting. Many of the team members are quickly likable with their exchanges of witty banter.

You will spend much of your time while reading the book trying to figure out which of the team members is the traitor. I guessed it pretty early on but that does not mean my thoughts did not flutter over some of the other characters being the traitor.

The Assault has quick paced and quick witted dialogue. Do not worry if you do not understand some of the abbreviations and jargon because the book contains a glossary!

Final Thought.
Give it a go. A unique military novel full of science fiction, action, thrills and adventures, Assault appeals not only to boys but to anyone who wants a fast paced adventure.
