Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "I am getting the series there's 3 books."

    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.

    "good listen - more twists than a country road"

    Unlike a lot of Patriot Fiction this is very well written with a good plot and character development

    Looking forward to the next one

    Story
    "Possible and probable"
    What did you love best about Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista?

    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


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it is plausible and believable..


    Which character – as performed by Mike Kemp – was your favorite?

    Bob Boulard


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Little Brians assistance in the escape.


    Any additional comments?

    Read for #3....I like Mikes voice, but his narration seems somewhat amateur ..still I like it..

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Excellent story ruined by terrible narration"
    What would have made Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista better?

    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)!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Realism, both in terms of characters and probability of events.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    WORST NARRATION EVER - A DEAF-MUTE WITH A SIGN LANGUAGE STUTTERING PROBLEM, WOULD HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB!


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

    THE AUDIOBOOK DEFINITELY EVOKED BOTH ANGER AND SADNESS IN THAT TERRIBLE NARRATION RUINED WHAT SHOULD/WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT LISTENING EXPERIENCE!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Well done!"

    Mr Brackens books should be made into movies. The narrators voice is perfect for telling this story. Don't listen to other reviews regarding the narration. I've read all his books and I am working on listening to them all on audible. I wish there were more in the EFD story.

    "Such a great story. Couldn't put it down!"

    Deep story line, twists, lots of action. It's scary how the story mirrors what is happening in the headlines today.

    "Incredible series!"
    Where does Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is excellent! The audiobook of book 1 is barely tolerable but got better on books 2 and 3.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Excellent!


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

    Too low budget and unrefined.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Extreme patriotism.


    Any additional comments?

    Matt Bracken is a genius
