Summary
High school senior Zack Lightwood has grown up on a heavy diet of science fiction films, books, and video games. One day reality and fantasy collide when a spaceship appears over Zack's school. The ship looks exactly like the ones in his favorite video game and it has arrived to take Zack. Because of his gaming skills he has been recruited by a top-secret government agency to help save the world from an imminent alien invasion.
Critique
This is one fun alien invasion adventure! Armada takes well-known sci-fi tropes and turns them upside down. Pop culture references to cult classics will please the most enthusiastic fans and the surprise twist will leave readers with plenty to think about long after the adventure has ended.
