  • The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery that Holds the Secret to America's Future

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Liberty minded individuals and those who believe in the Constitution will find this near future dystopian novel to be right up their alley. Those who are looking to be more informed about the potential threats to America's financial stability will learn what to watch for and how to prepare themselves for an economic collapse. America is on the cusp of financial annihilation. Matt and Karen Bair face the challenges of Main Street during a full scale financial meltdown. Government borrowing and monetary creation have reached their limits.

    Story

    I look for 3 things in prepper fiction 1 - disaster plot development, 2 - interesting character development and 3 - prepper hints and ideas. This story was, as a first effort, surprisingly good at all three and I anxiously await the rest of the story! The constructive criticism - contractions are normal for conversations! The narrator improved as the story progressed so I will allow for that as a positive as well.

    Bravo Mr. Goodwin!

    This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government.

    Story

    I loved the story, characters, plot-line and "prepper" ideas but the narration almost made me quit listening on numerous attempts. By the later chapters there was finally some flow and less than monotone delivery. I'll be purchasing the rest of the series but hoping for a narration improvement.

    Young Fitz, the illegitimate son of the noble Prince Chivalry, is ignored by all royalty except the devious King Shrewd, who has had him tutored him in the dark arts of the assassin. He has barely survived his first, soul-shattering mission, and when he returns to the court, he is thrown headfirst into the tumult of royal life.

    A serial killer is stalking Virginia’s young lovers, taking their lives and taunting police with a single clue: a jack of hearts. For two years, the meaning of this card has eluded FBI investigators. But as Scarpetta begins searching the victims’ remains for microscopic clues, she begins to suspect that someone in the FBI knows more about the murderer.

    Always on the hunt for new characters/authors so this was a good find. I will definitely be getting more of Scarpetta.

    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    Story

    As a professional driver I listen for hours but this has been a magnificent struggle to stay listening. I am usually pretty cautious with my credits but bought at sale price and still feel gyped. There is probably a good story here and as a first in a series I had high hopes. Narration is an art and I will probably never give Peter Hartman another try, no matter what is occurring in the story; be it a gunfight or a boardroom meeting; the inflection never wavers. Perfect diction but absolutely boring delivery.

    A handful of people. From different backgrounds, living in different towns and cities across America, they had nothing in common - except fear. Deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, a dark memory called out to them, drawing them to the Tranquility Motel - where the terrifying truth was waiting.

    If you could sum up Strangers in three words, what would they be?

    engrossing, exciting, fantastic


    What other book might you compare Strangers to and why?

    Darkest Night of the Year because of the character developement


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Excellent ability to differentiate between characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What fantastic, world changing experience did these folks share... and then forget?


    Any additional comments?

    Koontz is always a good investment of my monthly credits!
