Book review - Invasion - Jon S Lewis

Invasion - Jon S Lewis
'MIB'  meets  'Stargate'

Colt McAlister is drawn into a war against things he thought only existed in comic books.
After a car wreck takes the lives of his parents, Colt moves to Arizona to stay with his grandfather. There, an informant tells him that his parents were actually murdered because his mom, a journalist, was getting ready to write a story exposing Trident Industries.
Along with Oz and Danielle, his new comrades at Chandler High, Colt vows to uncover the truth. But the more they learn, the more bizarre reality becomes. Mind control, jet packs, and flying motorcycles only scratch the surface of what they discover.
Colt is recruited by a secret organization called the Central Headquarters Against the Occult and Supernatural. But the battle isn't just against an out-of-control giant corporation. A gateway to another world is opening, and the invasion has already begun.

The first few pages of this book had me hooked. The storyline was kind of 'Men in Black'  crossed with 'Stargate'  and although it was immediately over the top it kinda had you enjoying it!
A couple of chapters in however and I was dreading reading the next page let alone the next chapter, the plot suddenly became boring and that enjoyable unbelieveable 'MIB' action just wasn't enough to pick up what the author had managed to lose.
I read this book to the very last page because that is what I agreed to do but it was hard.
This book has many 4 star reviews so and for the first couple of chapters I honestly thought I would be giving it the same however I wonder if the reader needs to be more of a teenager than someone hitting 40.
