When looting and rioting overwhelm all the major US cities, Afghanistan War vet Ray McGregor makes his way from Michigan's Upper Peninsula to his parents' cattle ranch in Bella Coola, British Columbia, in remote western Canada. Joining him is his old friend Phil Adams, a Defense Intelligence Agency counterintelligence case officer based in Washington State.
Reckless banking practices, hyperinflation, and government negligence have led to an unprecedented socioeconomic collapse in America that quickly spreads throughout the world. Lightly populated Bella Coola is spared the worst of the chaos, but when order is restored it comes in the form of a tyrannical army of occupation. Ray and Phil soon become key players in the resistance movement, fighting the occupiers in a war that will determine not only their own personal survival, but also the future of North America.
Liberators depicts a world that is all too conceivable and terrifyingly familiar. Fast-paced and packed with authentic information on outdoor survival, self-sufficiency, and small-unit tactics, James Wesley, Rawles's latest thriller will resonate with his dedicated fanbase and encourage new readers to prepare for anything from lesser disasters to the dreaded worst-case scenario.

I really was hoping it would be better ! I feel like all these books from the series are just to make money ! I feel that the author doesnt even enjoy writing this series anymore. the first book was by far the best!
Maybe not had soooooooooo much run-on info and got more into the characters
I wish he would STOP reading books from authors I like , hes hard to listen to ! He has a bit of a lisp and not very good audio quality and that mixed with a lack of enthusiasm and not pronouncing words correctly makes for a hard listen , might have enjoyed the book more from a different person
Yes pray that jwr better understands the forgiveness God has given to all his children , I get a sense he is from a catholic background or comes from a very legalistic background
Still love JWR and what he stands for and his use of God even if he portrays a legalistic background
Post apocalyptic listener with some thrillers mixed in. Follow me on twitter at @drewsant
If you’ve read JWR other books you know what to expect from this book, but finally, maybe hopefully, he’s hit his stride with this one. ‘Liberators’ does a good job of mixing action with survival knowledge and his Christian values. In the past it seems like he’s had a ton of survival knowledge and lists (Patriots) or just a ton of filler espousing Christian values or both (Founders), but I think with this book he’s found a good balance with the Christian values guiding the actions and still there, but not going off on a tangent to smack you in the face with it. There is still some times he gets lost in the weeds with his lists or over accurate items (I don’t care that he moved it 4 inches can’t you say that he just went back and made and adjustment?) but overall I found this to be a very enjoyable and entertaining book.
Mr. Dove does an excellent job bringing the story to life!

Disjointed, hard to follow. The author jumps forward and backward in time while following different groups. I finally gave up. Don't really care what happens to the characters.Rawles uses military acronyms to the extreme (ATE). I'm guessing this might appeal to some military or para-military types(PMT). The use of so many acronyms(SMA) sounded to me like a guy trying to sound like Tom Clancy(GTTSLTC).
Some prepper tips.
I loved Rawles early books, Patriots and How to Survive TEOTWAWKI. Rawles is riding his reputation as a competent prepper to cash in on the quality of his early work.I won't buy another of his novels
Great story and character development as expected, but there were several times where there were lengthy passages that covered details of organization and equipment that did not move forward the story and interrupted the flow of the story (the capture of a Chinese spy, description of the construction of intelligence infrastructure, to name two). Still a recommended read/listen.
Less word fill, more action!
No, I think I've learned my lesson.
Why do nearly ALL of this genre have to be so religious and wholesome? I like SOME factual information, but JWR just goes over the top. Is he just filling space with overly technical information that will not further the story line in any way? This book would be a lot better if it were condensed without the waffle, oh wait, it would only be an hour long!
Say something about yourself!
not really, story line was a bit of a bore
More plot, less info on weapons and the ammo they use
Yes but nothing special
Perhaps with a major re-write
save your credit
on the trail
The listener will need a pen and pad to copy down the plethora of technical, tactical, and strategic information presented by the author.
Think 'Red Dawn' (the newer one) with a hardcore survivalist flare. It is a bit cheesy in parts but if you want serious buy 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy (and some anti-depressants). Entertaining enough that I listened to it at the gym and while driving. It only got a little off-kilter in the very last chapter as it described the new ultra-important, A#1, all lifestyles revolve around the gun role of firearms in post-"crunch" American society... But besides that very entertaining and I am happy to support J. W. R.
