Brandon Walker is your typical teenager interested in video games, all things science, and music. There's just one thing that sets Brandon apart from everyone~he's got purple eyes. His mother Sarah is medical researcher with different labs in and around London. She sets Brandon a task that she doesn't what his father to know about or his older sister Gem. Sarah didn't realize the danger she was setting Brandon in. Brandon completes the task before him but London is under attack with asteriods. Twins Jason and Kat Brown hook up with Brandon in order to complete the mission Brandon's mother set. Brandon learns about Talem Tarsus from a video diary. Why is London being attacked? Will Brandon complete the task? What project was Sarah and Talem working on? Your answers await you in Alien Disaster.

I have to say I'm impressed with this author's book. This book is totally unique in it's concept. I especially loved Brandon and Kat! They're truly fascinating characters that leave you wanting more of them. I'm not a fan of Brandon's sister Gem, she's very arrogant and know it all to boot. Sarah and Talem's project is brillant, scary, useful, and very dangerous to all. The author did a terrific job with this story I hope to see more of it. ( )

A really good Young Adult/Teen book. It was fast moving and had a unique plot. Good start for a first novel. Keep up the good work. I did not read Alien Disaster 2 because this is not really my style but I did enjoy book 1. ( )

Alien Disaster is a fast paced, action packed YA adventure story.

There are meteorites heading towards London, Brandon and his friends get caught in the middle of this disaster. They end up racing across the country trying to stay one step ahead of the aliens that are trying to kill them.

I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to people who like a fairly easy read packed with lots of action and characters that you want to root for. ( )

Alien Disaster is a science fiction story for young adults and is excellent. It contains every element for success--aliens, technology, war and of course good versus bad duking it out.
Every character in the story is believable and are likable/unlikable, as the author intends them to the point that the reader becomes engrossed in the story. Scenes with futuristic technology, not to mention todays, are described in such detail as to leave the reader with enough momentum to get the reader to imagine how they could bring them to fruition. In addition, the author as written the war scenes in such a way as not to allow a young adult, in my opinion, to see that when you commit murder, you kill someone it isn't just a game or a way to solve a problem. Just like any good story these days, there is more to come in the sequel.
Unfortunately, I noticed some editorial errors in the kindle edition I used. ( )

Alien Disaster by Rob May is pre-teen science fiction that is clearly aimed at the younger end of the spectrum. Mr. May's choice of rapid action and staccato dialogue over more leisurely plot development will cause some grumbles from more mature readers but kids could give it a try. ( )
