    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    Hugh says: "Accidentally Good"
    "Fair at best. Choose your reason before you buy."
    Overall

    This is book is not a good choice if you are looking for an action novel. If you are interested in ideas for how to survive and End Of Days scenario, it is OK. The authors other book, How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It, Is a far better choice. Rawles may be a good survivalist, and manual writer, a novelist he is not. It does drag a bit....

    Tamas's invasion of Kez ends in disaster when a Kez counter-offensive leaves him cut off behind enemy lines with only a fraction of his army, no supplies, and no hope of reinforcements. Drastically outnumbered and pursued by the enemy's best, he must lead his men on a reckless march through northern Kez to safety, and back over the mountains so that he can defend his country from an angry god, Kresimir.

    Ethan M. says: "Even better than the first, with a few new quirks"
    "egh, so so."

    This book was ok. Characters lack depth, and lack any level of maturity.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    I felt like I was swapping war stories with a buddy. Choke me up a few times, and made me laugh out loud too! It does bring up a lot of memories.

    Stretched to his limit, Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail. But when gods are involved.... Now, as attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about omens of death and destruction. Just old peasant legends about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should....

    Ethan M. says: "Excellent epic fantasy with Napoleonic influences"
    "Interesting idea..."

    I liked the book pretty well, but got tired of the hero touting - Not realistic that only a few people do everything - Lead characters placed in easily avoidable crisis - Failed to develop characters, etc.

    Before becoming the world's most notorious dictator, Kim Jong-Il ran North Korea's Ministry for Propaganda and its film studios. Conceiving every movie made, he acted as producer and screenwriter. Despite this control, he was underwhelmed by the available talent and took drastic steps, ordering the kidnapping of Choi Eun-Hee (Madam Choi) - South Korea's most famous actress - and her ex-husband Shin Sang-Ok, the country's most famous filmmaker.

    Moved along pretty well, and kept me interested. I will probably look for more books about North Korea now.
