Review: “The Assault” by Brian Falkner
All that stands between human survival on Earth and the invading Bzadians’ complete conquest is Recon Team Angel: six teens between the ages of 14 and 18 trained and modified to pass as the invader “Pukes” and dropped into enemy territory to uncover the enemy’s plans. A team with a mission that only one knows. A team with a traitor among them. From the moment of the airdrop to the frantic scramble to safety, the pace of “The Assault” is relentless and the pages keep turning.
School Library Journal recommends this book for grades 7 and up.
