    Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista is a novel set in the not-too-distant future in the American Southwest, during a period of low-intensity civil war. The action takes place between Texas and California, but the story is mainly centered around New Mexico. Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista is a sequel to Enemies Foreign and Domestic, but it may be enjoyed on its own.

    Alan says: "I am getting the series there's 3 books."
    "Great story, TERRIBLE narration."

    If you could sum up Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista in three words, what would they be?

    Overpriced audio book


    What didn’t you like about Mike Kemp’s performance?

    Halting narration, monotone voice, repeats words, mispronunciations, etc... My 10 year old nephew reads aloud so much better than this its not even a fair comparison. I can't believe this guy gets paid to read stories aloud for audiobook sale. Unbelievable. Very disappointing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen all in one sitting, but couldn't stand to listen to the narrator for more than a half hour at a time.


    Any additional comments?

    Great plot line, character development, good pace, etc, but considering the Audible audio file is almost twice as expensive as the paperback version, its WAY overpriced. I bought the paperback version of the first book (Enemies Foreign and Domestic) and loved it, so I sprang for the audio version of the sequel. I'll be buying the paperback version of the third installment. I will not buy another audiobook narrated by this individual. Ever. I might actually buy a Kindle for the price of the Kindle versions and to avoid bad narration in the future. Almost ruined the story for me.
