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.

Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
I fully enjoyed the story and the characters. This is a author who'll be having more audio books produced soon I would think. The narrator was perfect somehow I see all this with a strong southern accent for characters at least most. I look forward to more. Hopefully soon.
There's a 3rd book in this series I have it on kindle but would prefer audio.
Unlike a lot of Patriot Fiction this is very well written with a good plot and character development
Looking forward to the next one
It reminded me of another book I read awhile back called
"The Next 100 Years: A Forecast for the 21st Century " It's quite frightening to think, but I believe this is where the country is headed. I think Mr. Bracken is doing a great service by putting these scenarios in fictional settings, it will open a few peoples eyes to what is going on around them. That is what I like best about the story
Yes, it is plausible and believable..
Little Brians assistance in the escape.
Read for #3....I like Mikes voice, but his narration seems somewhat amateur ..still I like it..
Overpriced audio book
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.
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.
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.
Storywise - nothing as it's an excellent story! Fortunately, I have previously read the Enemies Trilogy and the Bracken Anthology, and found them first-rate - that's why I purchased the audiobooks.. Unfortunately and due solely to very bad narration, the audiobook is simply unlistenable - I couldn't even make it through two (2) minutes of listening (and I tried several times)!
Realism, both in terms of characters and probability of events.
WORST NARRATION EVER - A DEAF-MUTE WITH A SIGN LANGUAGE STUTTERING PROBLEM, WOULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB!
THE AUDIOBOOK DEFINITELY EVOKED BOTH ANGER AND SADNESS IN THAT TERRIBLE NARRATION RUINED WHAT SHOULD/WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT LISTENING EXPERIENCE!
GO BACK AND RE-RECORD WITH A GOOD STORY TELLER! I'M GETTING MY MONEY BACK ON THIS ONE BUT IF/WHEN IT'S RE-RECORDED USING A GOOD NARRATOR, THEN I'LL RE-PURCHASE AND LISTEN AT THAT POINT IN TIME!
Extremely well researched. Author is obviously a lifelong student of the subject matter. Thank you Matt Bracken for sharing your insight.
The story is excellent! The audiobook of book 1 is barely tolerable but got better on books 2 and 3.
Too low budget and unrefined.
Yes. Extreme patriotism.
Matt Bracken is a genius
