Titan Base by Eric Nylund

The Resisters return in this action packed adventure for ages 10-14.  They are still trying to stay alive and overcome the aliens that have taken over the planet.

Random House Yearling Sci-Fi sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  You'll also want to grab the first in the series (The Resisters) and the second (Sterling Squadron) if you haven't read them yet.

Ethan is now in charge of the squadron (even if he doesn't want to be) and he's trying to find a safe place for the Resisters base.  While he's doing that, the Ch'zar are trying to find the present base, the Seed Bank.  The adults not brainwashed are living there and helping the kids.

While Ethan and his friends dodge missiles, fight radiation, battle robots and try to avoid alien scouts, he suddenly realizes the movement by the Ch'zar he sees is an attack on the Seed Bank.  The resulting battle will change everyone's life...

This is a monumental battle with horrible losses on both sides.  The action begins in the first few pages and doesn't stop until you've finished the last page.  It's a sci-fi novel that is almost believable and I enjoyed reading it.  Why don't you get in your bug suit and take a ride with the squadron?

Happy reading.
