I am totally snagged! There’s a cutting-edge current to every page that’s hard to resist, so get ready to engage your heart and your mind. The characterization delves just enough into emotionality to give the characters realism without moving the focus away from fights, intrigue, and action. I’m definitely going to read the whole series!

Remmy, his brother AJ and AJs 2 marine friends Jones and Rambo decide to go away for a weekend hunting trip. As they begin their trip they are captured by aliens and taken through a gateway to another planet. The aliens have realised Remmy’s high intelligence and his ability to see the coding of the gateway and have come to realise that Remmy is special and he is the prophet they have been searching for. Remmy has the ability to read and change the coding for the gateway and therefore the abilit ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this and even though I'm not USUALLY a sci-fi reader, I do enjoy reading a good scifi book on occasion. This one reminds me a lot of the premise of the movie Stargate and television series Stargate SG-1, both of which I LOVED. Sixteen year old Remmy is on a long hunting trip with his Marine brother AJ and his brother's company members, Rambo and Jones. He is kidnapped by aliens out scouting from the sphere that has the capability of transporting travelers between worlds just ...more

Good book but the writing of the guns sound effects takes you out of the story.

I enjoyed this book very much, I would’ve given it a five star rating but The blat Sound affects of the gunshots takes me out of the story, it makes me think like a nine-year-old has written this book. Also I am not too keen on 16-year-old kids in science fiction books. But some may like this book anyway. I did enjoy the grown-up characters especially in the Marines and hope to read more about them. I am waiting for t

A mix of different SF concepts

Starts of ok, quickly become a mix of stargate, dragon riders of Pern, ST next generation, and jurassic Park followed by questionable Tactical decisions and a unbelievable escape, you have this novel.

An example of imagination beyond my wildest dreams

I was nervous starting this book since I’m not one for series books, but after reading The Invasion I cannot wait to read the next book. the authors are so creative with the technologies and alien worlds they came up with. Now I want to find a real gateway to other planets. Or maybe I can create one with my mind just by reading this series.

If you are a Syfy fan, love mythological creatures, know who the Borg are, and enjoy reading stories about the marines, then you will love this book. It kept me enthralled with bated breath till the end. Our main characters are brothers with 8 year difference that have the best bro bond, and Remy is too smart for anyone's own good. ...more

A good read

A good read, I did find the first few pages confusing until I realized what the authors where up to and then I just enjoyed more and more. If you have not read anything of these two then give it a go, I did and so glad I did and looking forward to reading more. Again a good read enjoy

Very entertaining and action-packed. The aliens gun sounds were annoying and at times the story seemed geared towards the YA readers. A little bit of high schoolish emotion crush from our "special" MC, the little brother, the awesome big brother and his Marine squad mates, each with unique and non normal characteristics. I will definitely read the next book from this author. ...more

So cool!

This was a blast! Just the right amount of action and humor to keep you engaged in the story. You gotta love Rambo, Jones and Remmy just as much as AJ.

Can't wait for the next installment so off I go. Pick up the whole series and join the Pack. You won't regret it! You have been warned 😁

Exciting Adventure

Loved how Yanez/Baker ran with this idea , creating a lot of interest between adults and teen scifi adventure. This should appeal to adults and YA alike while still being fresh with some good pop culture references added in.

What do you get when you combine a genius teenager, marines, dragons, and an upcoming spare war? A great series! This book was so great I read it 2 hours. It’s great to see that someone has set this great book in the best state of WV. Don’t let this one pass you by.

There were moments in this story where I almost got a little bored. I can't explain why, it just happened. But then the action picked up again and I was hooked all over. Overall I rate this book a solid 4, and will definitely buy the next one.

This is a great book. It was a little out of my usual reading comfort zone, but it was well worth the read. This book had great characters and a story you can dive into. I liked it.
