SkyWake: Invasion

(4 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

SkyWake is the gaming phenomenon of the year and centres around an epic war between two alien forces: the Bactu, an ancient race of tentacled extra-terrestrials with telepathic powers, nicknamed Squids; and their sworn enemies, the Arcturian soldiers, known as Red Eyes. There is great excitement when the best players from around the world are given the opportunity to compete in live tournaments, which will be held simultaneously in six international cities. 

Casey and her team, the Ghost Reapers, are invited to take part, and she takes her little brother Pete along as a spectator. As the London tournament draws to a close, Casey notices that the venue is crawling with very realistic-looking Red Eye soldiers, carrying lethal plasma rifles. She realises with shock that the tournament is cover for an alien abduction, and gamers have unwittingly been trained to fight in an intergalactic war. When Pete goes missing, Casey does everything in her power to find him, and the Ghost Reapers literally battle for their lives.

This exhilarating futuristic adventure is a fast-paced, thrilling read, perfect for gamers and sci-fi fans. An exciting ending will leave readers eagerly awaiting the next book in the trilogy.
