Publisher's Summary

All Empires Collapse Eventually and America is No Exception.
From best selling author Bobby Akart, The Loyal Nine is a gripping novel of an America teetering on the edge of economic and societal collapse. Political suspense collides with post-apocalyptic thriller fiction in the bestselling series - The Boston Brahmin.
"A terrifyingly realistic, prescient new series ... which can only be described as prophetic." - G. Michael Hopf, best selling author of The New World Series

With social unrest sweeping the country, Europe on the brink of war and the U.S. economy under siege by foreign nations, a new threat emerges. The nation is caught in the crosshairs of a power struggle between wealthy oligarchs and the political leaders who claim to have the country's best interests at heart.

As the collapse events escalate, enter The Loyal Nine - direct descendants of the Founding Fathers, a modern day Knights Templar whose mission is to protect America, and the republic, from those who would inflict tyranny upon her.

But will America be destroyed from within? Conditions of war are building and they do not involve bullets and bombs. There is a new battleground - cyberspace. As the country descends into decline economically and socially, will America be caught off guard by a threat never before experienced - a devastating Cyber War?

    Story
    "conflicting plot line doesn't make sense"

    starts off a bit difficult to follow with many different characters and lines of plot.
    then you have 9 people that have ultimate power to mold the shape of our country comma and even select each president. and yet with all this power they select Obama? And Hillary? I call b******* and if you didn't catch that again I call b*******. they then go on to talk about preparedness for collapse of society. a collapse which I would argue that they created, if indeed they had this ultimate power. then with all their wealth that they could throw at the problem of preparedness Kama they choose to live on top of a building in the middle of a city??? Again I call b*******. no proper with reasonable options and A Fistful of money would choose to prep and stay in the middle of a city.

    Story
    "Like a Tea Party infomercial, but much worse."
    What would have made The Loyal Nine better?

    Less all-out self glorifying of the author's views, a LOT less. I've seen more balanced material on Jehovah's Witness propaganda. "...makers(the super rich) vs takers.", really?Also, having another performer instead of Morton, who completely forgets to do any type of voice acting with the characters he seems to deeply dislike. VERY unprofessional of his part. Plus the whole setup is deeply laughable in its nonsense, from safe houses of superwealthy people on 100 Beacon to cheap Union bashing and the shameless constant product placement/self promoting of his other books.I didn't return it only because I feared this book is so soiled that the credit I paid with would've contaminated the rest upon refund, and I'm only barely joking about it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bobby Akart again?

    Long answer? NO


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Morton?

    He's bad here, but nobody could have salvaged this rotten ship.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust, worry, and pity in equal parts for such biased views. This is my first and, hopefully, last experience of the kind on Audible.


    Any additional comments?

    There is no warning on the book bio that this is basically a propaganda manual of deeply disturbing political and racial views, far from a mere piece of fiction. Please fix that.

    "A new twist......."
    What made the experience of listening to The Loyal Nine the most enjoyable?

    Preppers in the upper echelons of Boston society? Whodathunkit? Very good storyline with an exceptional narration.
    Just purchased #2 Cyberattack...... Hope everything is as good in this episode.

    Story
    "Entire backstory book just to sell next books"

    This book took a long time building the charaters (maybe too long), with lottle to no action to keep you entertained.
    I dislike books interested in selling you a series instead of telling you a story....and this one was obviously set to tell the story in the next book.

    Story
    "It is inevitable."

    History repeats itself in many ways and in The Loyal Nine the repeat is staged in the here and now. You feel the pain of the country falling apart and it hurts. You feel the struggle of the ones affected by the events that unfold. This is the stage for the next book in the series and a must read.

    "Very slow and put narration"

    I put in about 3 hours on this title before finally giving up. It was very tedious and the narrator has an approach that made it even more boring. I know that others loved the book, which is why I gave it 3 hours to capture my interest, but I just couldn't keep going.

    Story
    "I am not sure exactly"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Loyal Nine to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the Print version


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    gave a historical base for the plot- the beginning was tough to get through.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the elevator in Vegas- I thought I knew what was going to happen- and made my heart race a bit!


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I am an a-typical reader/listener of this genre. I enjoy many books in this space, but this one made me cringe and frown more often than not.
    Some portions offended me (a little bit). In my opinion – myopic, one-sided and stereotypical; but we will see where the story takes the characters. I will try book 2; and pray.
    The beginning drags, but hang in there… it gets better.

    I think the book is well written, and kudos to any creative person who can sit down, organize their thoughts and write a book or a series of books that many people enjoy.

    Story
    "Interesting story on current events"
    What did you love best about The Loyal Nine?

    This story is an interesting take on current events, using real names in today's politics.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author used current names of politicians and groups that make this story feel more realistic.


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

    Joseph Morton is not my favorite reader/narrator. His voice gives the story a vintage feel, not real exciting, but it was enough to pull me in.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Loyal Nine and why?

    It takes some time, but the entire first book is basically written to set up the characters. That doesnt mean this book is horrible, just that there isnt a favorite character thus far.


    Any additional comments?

    Not the best book/series I have gotten into, BUT the way this story is written and the use and implementation of names and groups gives this book series a spot with relevance.

    "Excellent Book"

    I am learning a great deal about the inner workings of our country & the shadow groups that run it. Can't wait to start Book#2 in the series. (Cyber Attack)

    "No emotion"

    Flat
    That is how the story comes off. There is not a lot of voices that the reader does and at times it sounds monotone.

    The story is really good, but again the reader just doesn't deliver when it needs to be there during the few action moments.
    His accented voices sound cheap and choppy and reminded me of a character in another book that was even worse with the narrator.
    Men sound like men, but almost all the same. Women sound like men.

    The narrator is calm though, and won't make freak you out if the story happens to get under your skin.

    I give the audio book itself 4 because you can get past the narrator. just a mild annoyance.
