Do you remember earlier this year when I put out an article about Jack Flacco’s book RANGER MARTIN AND THE ZOMBIE APOCACLYPSE? Now I introduce to you RANGER MARTIN AND THE ALIEN INVASION. Jack Flacco’s books are special to me because my first revue was on RANGER MARTIN AND THE ZOMBIE APOCACLYPSE. My suggestion to you is to not read the review and go get the books. Hope you like the books!
This book is one fantastic pile of pages. The book is one of the more exciting stories that I have read. It has action, dialog, and some funny, silly, and active characters! The main character is Ranger Martin. They encounter aliens and zombies. Group after group of zombies are fought off and made again by the aliens. But who should they encounter? An alien but you have to find out more in the book! The names and characters that make up the group are…Ranger Martin, the zombie killer, that what do you know is still alive (of course). Matty a 15year old found just barely surviving after a horrible thing happened. Jon, Matty’s little know-it-all brother. Finally, Randy who has his own little story to tell .This book is so wild that almost everyone will love and read it!
The character that I chose to write about is Matty! Matty is a funny girl and has a little annoying brother named Jon. She is the one that gets frustrated with Ranger Martin and his ideas. Even at the end of the world a girl still has feelings and Matty discovers hers. Matty has a funny personality and is not afraid of zombies. If only zombies were the least of her concern.
My other favorite character is Ranger Martin. Ranger is the zombie killer and wants nothing more than to destroy zombies, as you would know from the last book and review. He has come upon some strange animal. No, let me change that. He has come upon some weird thing that they find out is a…

Ask the Author
Rhyanna’s Reads: My name is Rhyanna and I would like to ask you a few questions for my review on Rhyanna’s Read.
Author, Jack Flacco: Hi Rhyanna, I’m very pleased to meet you!
Rhyanna’s Reads: How were you inspired to write this book?
Author, Jack Flacco: I knew I needed to write a sequel to Ranger Martin and the Zombie Apocalypse, and I knew it would involve aliens, since, at the time, all I had was the title. I suppose that would have been reason enough for inspiration, but it wasn’t. What excited me most was the desire of wanting to give Ranger an archenemy. That’s what started the ideas flowing. Once I had that clear vision, the story came together very quickly.
Rhyanna’s Reads: Why do you write books for young readers?
Author, Jack Flacco: Having kids of my own, I wanted to write books they could read without my worrying the content wouldn’t be suitable for their impressionable minds. That’s the reason zombies bleed green. I also find young readers have an incredible imagination. If I can impress those young readers with that incredible imagination of theirs, then I know I’ve done a good job to the extent that even the parents would want to read my books.
Rhyanna’s Reads: Do you like being an author?
Author, Jack Flacco: I do, it’s a lot of fun! I meet new people, gain new experiences, and learn new things all the time. When I say to someone that I’ve written a couple of books, they look at me wondering what it would be like to be an author. The thing I like most about being an author is writing every day. I’m excited every morning I wake up. I never know what stories the day will bring.
Rhyanna’s Reads: What makes your characters special to you?
Author, Jack Flacco: Every character I write has a piece of who I am. It doesn’t matter if they’re good or bad, they all have something that belongs to me. Ranger has a way of never giving up. Matty cuts through the fog and gets to the point in a matter. Randy is trying to figure things out as he goes along. And Jon sees a connection with everything. I love my characters and sometimes I, too, learn something from them along the way.
Rhyanna’s Reads: Thank you for answering the questions.
