    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.

    Story
    "Puts it out there"

    This book picks up the story line of the last novel five years into the future. Where the last book was action packed and moved very quickly this second book in the series takes a look at the current trends in demographics and political expediency and builds society as the main character for this book. The character Ragna Bartewell is back and one of the only characters from the first book to carry the story forward, but it is the condition of society itself that is the star of this story. If one pays attention to events it is possible to see how the author developed this storyline and it is a compelling case that he makes, the writing is solid and the dialog well done, the ending is exciting as are other turning points in the story. Where the last book moved from one action scene to the next this book builds tension to the end in a more classic thriller style, and does deliver an exciting ending. I rated this book a bit below the first only because the development phase of this book delved on a bit, it was well done but a bit overdone at times, although in the end it did make for very well established characters and a solid storyline.
    Highly Recommended

    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.

    "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
    "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!

    Story
    "What a terrible Narrator."

    I do not need to say very much more. I have been listening to audible books and the real "Books-on-Tape" driving back and forth between LA and San Francisco for more than 15 years and I have never heard a book read so poorly narrated.

    I want to finish this book by both listening and reading but I do not know if I can take very much more of the droning by this fellow and the awful impact on the story his droning provides.

    Hiring this fellow must have been a contract clause by the writer/publisher or something worse if Audible selected the reader. But putting it bluntly. I will not purchase any more books by this writer or narrator because I am burned out on the story structure due to awful narration. I don't know if the structure could be any better in future books.
