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
I'll give you the Readers digest version, way too much religion for me. I have nothing against faith but the author seems to feel it is the most important aspect and it's not. I have followed his work for years and this seems to be a reoccurring theme more and more. For me Mr Rawles I would prefer you dialed it back a bit.
Loved your first and second books.
I can't believe this was written by the same guy who did patriots. Absolutely terrible! It was like a religious soap opera. Hard to follow and I know pastors who don't god it up as much as the characters in this book. I feel dumber for having read this. If I could submit this with negative stars I would.
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!
Way too much Christian preaching thinly disguised as story line.
No, but i it has completely turned me off of Rawles.
Good reader; just weak material.
Disappointment. Implausible winter camping experience even though this was a critical element in the first part of the book. City boy displaying a total lack of knowledge about ranching or living on a ranch which is core to another part of the book. Using prepper fiction to promote his view of the Christian right. Tedious description of military intelligence which may have been heavily autobiographical.
I enjoyed The Patriots complete with the tedious details about prepping and a thorough misunderstanding of macroeconomics. The story was interesting, moved along well (mostly), and was (mostly) plausible. Rawles then created a consulting business and a highly successful blog and a great campaign of self-promotion. Sadly, his subsequent fiction has suffered from steadily increasing doses of tedium and Christian preaching. In this most recent work, Rawles runs a story line more than 10 years into the future and fails miserably. Save your time and money!
