The Newest Best Books For Teens with Aliens


Scifi books with aliens get me excited.

All too often the fantasy books that I read have characters with sensational powers that never seem to show their full potential. Aliens, on the other hand, typically have amazing abilities that can and will cripple us, and make us ask for them to just end it quickly and painlessly. Then in the end, the heroes pull off the impossible and save the day. It always makes me smile and hope for the movie version to be just as electrifying (it never is). Here are some of the newest best books for teens with aliens.

Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame (Cassidy Jones Adventures Book 5) by Elise Stokes

This is book five in the Cassidy Jones young adult science fiction series. The Metal Woman is up to her tricks, and takes three people hostage. She demands to know the location of a special weapon, and she suspects that the Third Reich received the weapon from the Roman god of fire, Vulcan. Cassidy Jones decides to make things right, heading into the Seattle underground, but her quest for revenge may have a high price when it costs the life of someone that she loves.

What do readers say?

Life is getting pretty hard for Cassidy Jones. Lilly White jumps back into the series with a vengeance and kidnaps three people. Of course Cassidy and Emery come to the rescue but like always get more than they bargain for. Add to that the relationship drama between Cassidy and Jared and Emery hiding stuff from Cassidy and we get a book that hooks us till the end. The characters are slowly growing up and changing. Stokes has done an amazing job developing these characters and I can’t wait to see what happens next!Kimmy, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]


Alpha Class: A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Etheric Academy Book 1) by TS Paul, Michael Anderle

Teaching a bunch of teens how to be the next generation of leaders, sounds pretty safe, right? The Etheric Empire sets up an academy for training the first group of teens for leadership. Stuff like the different groups and areas in the Empire, like weapons, operations, etc. Of course, some teens can be a handful, but the teachers in Team BMW are ready for it, right? Meet team Alpha Class, and see them merge human’s and Wechselbalg in a group on their first assignment. What could go wrong?

What do readers say?

“This was an excellent side-story to the Kutherian Gambit main series. I’m really excited by what I am seeing from TS Paul. I am looking forward to the next of the stories from the academy. I am really looking forward to the start of the third cycle of stories from the Kutherian Gambit. I am on pins and needles. Best wishes to TS Paul. I’m waiting ….. not very patiently.”smalltown editor, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]


Opposition (A Lux Novel) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The fifth book in the Lux young adult science fiction series. Katy can’t understand why Daemon did nothing as his kind, the Luxen, came and threatened to destroy every human and hybrid on Earth. Daemon isn’t above betrayal to save the ones he loves, but sometimes it’s impossible to know who are your friends, and who are your enemies. They may have to sacrifice everything just to ensure the survival of both their friends, and mankind.

What do readers say?

I’m not a big fan of aliens but I love this series! It caught my attention in very the beginning when Katy and Daemon first met. Daemon was so arrogant, and sarcastic but loving too. Katy was so nerdy, and funny but still strong. They didn’t disappoint! The conclusion to this wonderful series was (as usual) heart-wrenching, action-packed, romantic, and of course hilarious! In the finale Daemon, Katy, and the others fight for themselves and the world. All while making snarky comments and pop culture references! I would recommend this book to fans of the previous books and to anyone who wants a fun read! Not only did Katy & Daemon’s story get a deserving end but so did all the characters! I can’t believe it’s over, I will miss these characters!Kaleigh, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

What do readers say?

This is the last book in this story and the characters get the ending they deserve and have been struggeling for all this time!
As always the writing from Siobhan Davis is fast paced, very energetic and romantic at the same time. I am sad that the story has to have an ending, would love to know what comes next in their lives… If that doesn’t say enough: I love it!

What do readers say?

Book 6 of the Cadicle is fantastic! The saga continues into a new generation but without leaving the three previous generations behind. It’s freaking awesome. And there’s more from the Priesthood and the Aesir and lots of machinations of all sorts and some cool new young people, many of them learning all sorts of new things and experiencing culture shock. It’s all good! The story lines are interesting, the writing is smooth and picks up on nuances between the characters. It’s a fun and gripping read.A. A. Baldwin, Amazon user. [Review from Amazon]

With resources declining, many homeless, stealing food is punishable by a death sentence to an off-world mining planet. For a few select teenagers, the alternative is join OA military.

What do readers say?

“I got the first book for free and usually stop there. These books are well written with few errors (one of my personal pet peeves). I usually just read the first book and go on to another single but occasionally I get sucked up into a series as I did with this one. Can hardly wait for the next!”nancinurse, Amazon user.
