Seventeen-year-old Jesse and his friends have recently escaped slavery to aliens and are living in a rebel camp in relative safety.  As their leader gets weaker, plans for leadership and survival are debated and revised, and all the while Jesse’s mental powers are increasing and changing.  Some rebels begin to believe that he has been chosen by the gods to host the Warrior Spirit and will save them all as the camp’s safety disintegrates.  But before he can, Jesse must decide where his heart lies and come to terms with the power within him.

Opinion: 

In the exciting sequel to Alien Invasion and Other Inconveniences, Brian Yansky pits his heroes against power struggles, alien attacks, and wavering loyalties, all of which could be the deciding factor in the fight for the right to the Earth.  Homicidal Aliens and Other Disappointments is a fast paced page turner that keeps readers engaged and on the edge of their seats trying to decipher relationship issues, loving plot twists, and envisioning a permanently changed, alien inhabited Earth.  Middle school science fiction lovers will want to get their hands on Yansky’s well-written novel, Homicidal Aliens, and experience an invaded planet through Jesse’s eyes.

Content rating - some mature content

Explain your content rating: 

There was some language that could be interpreted into swearing and some really mild suggestive dialogue, but it didn't detract from the novel and was easily ignored.
