Twelve-year-old Ethan Blackwood has always known exactly what he wants - to win the state soccer championship, get into the best high school, and become an astronaut. Then he meets Madison and Felix, who tell him something... insane. They claim that fifty years ago, aliens took over the Earth, and everyone past the age of puberty is under their mind control. Ethan doesn't believe it. But then he sees for himself the aliens' monster bug robots and the incredible way Madison and Felix have learned to fight them. So Ethan Blackwood has a choice: he can go back to his normal, suburban, protected lie of a life - or he can become a Resister.

Million-copy best-selling HALO author Eric Nylund delivers action-packed science fiction in his first book for young readers.

    " I picked this up because Mr. Nylund is a legend in the video game world. Unfortunately, the book was lacking. It would have made a good game, I think, but it was not a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 9/11/2013

    " Grades 5+ Read this in two days I really needed a good sci-fi "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/5/2013

    " Good for 5th/6th grade boys. Reads like a combo of Power Rangers and Transformers. Who wouldn't like giant symbiant bugs with full weaponry? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lake | 3/29/2013

    " Good start to very interesting series (hopefully). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitchell | 2/3/2013

    " A goofy YA - aliens take over the world 50 years ago by taking over the mind of all adults except those underground. So kids have to fight them off with giant robot insects? I think I've read this story before but this is twisted a bit differently. But kind of cute. 3.5 of 5. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/2/2012

    " High action sci-fi alien thriller with insect fighting machines and tons of fight scenes for the kid who needs the plot to along quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean | 3/11/2012

    " this book was great but an unbelievable cliff-hanger "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 3/10/2012

    " Something about this book just didn't work for me. I never became interested in the characters or the plot. Middle grade read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 12/24/2011

    " I liked this Sci-fi book about kids in super bug suits that have to protect against an alien threat. It was written by one of the guys involved with Halo, so it's got a good story to it. "
