for C.D. Bryan’s books
The second book in C.D. Bryan’s Flight Knight series, Take Me to Your Leader, tells about a mysterious mission for beginning Flight Knights Parker, Mark, and Hanna. They receive a message that there is an alien threat to the nearby community. Parker’s new neighbor as well as the new science teacher, Mr. Mackey, rouse their suspicions because of some wacky behavior. They begin to spy on his house, but what walks out of his garage will surprise and threaten not only the community and the big picture, but their own personal lives. They will need to work as a team and figure out how to stop the alien invasion before being taken to the leader.
I enjoyed this second installment in the Flight Knight series. It was fun and mysterious. There are surprises as the book progresses, as well as some exciting moments. The first book was a great adventure and action story, this one is more of a mystery… …It is definitely a very solid addition to the Flight Knight series… As a teacher, I am happy to say that this is a clean and exciting book for young children. They will fall into the action and be able to relate to Parker, Mark, and Hanna. I would recommend this book series for any young person that enjoys a science fiction read.
“C.D. Bryan has written an excellent introduction to his Flight Knight series. In his first book, No Aliens Allowed, the three children are introduced. Parker, along with his friends Hanna and Mark, are being chased by bullies when they stumble upon an alien crash site. They receive five boxes that will change their very beings. These boxes are sought by the government, as well as by alien forces, and the children will need to protect them as well as each other. Throughout the story that follows, adventure is quick, surprises abound, and the future will never look the same. Join Parker, Hanna, and Mark as they embark on the first adventure as Flight Knights. And remember, no aliens allowed.
This is an excellent beginning to the Flight Knight series. It is fast paced and there is absolutely never a dull moment. The entire book takes place in the space between the end of school and sunset. There is less violence than I expected for a book about children fighting aliens, but that does not take away from the story in the least. If you enjoy fast paced sci-fi action, this is the book for you. It will take you on a journey that will excite and energize you. C.D. Bryan is an excellent author. No Aliens Allowed is an excellent sci-fi book and most preteens would love it (boys especially).”

“I found this book to be humorous and very engaging. On several occasions, just when I thought I knew where the story might be going I was pleasantly surprised. I cant say enough, just an all around fun novel with surprise twists and turns around every corner. Jicky Jack I’ll be back. That’s all I can say.”
“Epic Novel . . . I chose this book because my mom said that it would be a good book. I think it’s a great book.”
“I bought this book for my grandson . . . I read it first and really liked it . . . It’s a good read for any age.”
“I bought this for my preteen son . . . he found it to be a real page-turner. He said he can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out.”
“This is a fantastic story. I really liked this book not only as an adventure but because of the suspense and mystery I found throughout it. J.R. and his friends are in a race against time, mystical enemies, and the strength of their own willpower. It was hard to put down. My daughter is reading it now.”
