The Horn Book Guide

“Zack is recalled to duty when his boss, Sorn, goes missing. With his parents’ blessing, along with the support of a flying alien cat and a new human friend, Zack must evade enemy aliens and Homeland Security, find Sorn, and keep humanity from realizing aliens exist. The author manages to keep Zack’s fast-paced adventures relatively fresh in this fifth installment.” —The Horn Book Guide
