A good second book. It contains narration on the macro level and some on the itty-bitty level. On the strategic level, we understand the countries who..Show More » want to do harm to the two major fragments of the USA. BTW, where's Canada and Mexico in this. One could assume hegemonic tendencies there, too...but, nope! At the tactical level, the slavery thing was well played. The person who narrated Howard did not make me feel that he was in charge...his voice was irritating. Finally, the end was truly and end, with an epilogue. Makes me want to read/listen to the third novel in the series.
I felt like I only got half of a book! Although the prior two books in this series were not my favorite, they were solid. I was suspicious at first ..Show More »when I saw that this book was only 5 hours long, but was committed to buying it since I wanted to know how the story ended. I should have listened to my gut.
This book starts out several years in the future with our heroes Harris and Dupree basically hunting each other for some unknown falling out they had. Then, just as it starts to get interesting, we are taken back to the past to find out why they are no longer friends. Then, just as that starts to get interesting, the book ends! What happened? I feel like the publisher must have told the author he had to turn in whatever he had, like being forced to put your pencil down at the end of an exam, before you are finished. Very disappointing.
But, I guess it worked, because I am going to buy Book 4 now (probably in a couple years) because I still want to know what happened.
