The Assault – Brian Falkner

Aliens fleeing from a doomed planet wormed their way onto Earth by asking for a small corner of Australian desert for their new homeland.  Nope, they wanted the entire planet.  When the story opens, only the Americas have not been overrun by the aliens.  An elite force of highly skilled teens is tasked with infiltrating the alien headquarters that has been tunneled into the hard rock in the Australian outback.  Narrowly escaping death when his landing apparatus is tampered with during the air drop, the operations leader knows there is a traitor in the group.  But who and why would a human side with the aliens?  Non-stop action defines this military thriller with a “storm the castle” attitude.  Perfect for teens!
