Review of DOMINATION by Jon S. Lewis

Sixteen-year-old Colt McAlister may be humanity’s only hope against the ruthless alien race known as the Thule. A prophecy concerning him, a human boy with Thule blood running through his veins, foretells that he will be the one to stop the Thule from overtaking humanity. But Colt’s not so sure. He worries the blood might be changing him? What if he becomes one of the Thule? With some of his closest friends around him training for combat in a Thule invasion, Colt must rise to the occasion and become the hero he was destined to be.

DOMINATION is the final book in Jon S. Lewis’ young adult C.H.A.O.S. Trilogy, and like most epic trilogies, the stakes are raised and everything is up for grabs in this story. I’ve really enjoyed this story because it’s been a true hero’s journey throughout, especially with the feel of a comic book superhero origin story. It’s a book that will appeal to young adults, and it tells a great story of God using a human being to be a rescuer of humanity.

DOMINATION has some surprises in it concerning the Thule which raise some interesting questions about our view of others not like us. The story progresses quickly, and the only drawback to it is that I felt like the ending happened too quickly. However, taken together, I thought Lewis created a unique and compelling story through the C.H.A.O.S. Trilogy.
