5.0 out of 5 starsA government that self destructs
Reviewed in the United States on June 10, 2019
What happens? Can a collapse of the government be survived? Will people turn into animals overnight? Can Will and his family survive. Prepper and conspiracy for a great mix.
I'll be brief. Yes, this is fiction. Yes, I was entertained. But simultaneously, my concern for our nation continued to escalate. Take heed of the main character's final broadcast. We have a similar choice now - will it be a government OF the people and BY the people and FOR the people? Or will WE allow it to be destroyed, changed forever? I pray we choose Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
3.0 out of 5 starsA good book, action-packed and full of suspense

The year is 2037 and the country is splintering. As social and economic conditions deteriorate, two men will risk everything to stop the brutal takeover of the CMA.
Marcus is a world famous newscaster. He speaks his mind and shares his views on the failures and problems of the country. When he is subtly threatened, he must start to spin the stories for the oppressors while soaking up as much information as possible for the patriot forces at work.
Will lives in a remote area of California with his widowed mother. He's seen the sign of the times and has prepared as much as possible. When chaos descends into his small town, he and his mom join forces with a few friends and neighbors to attempt to 'hide out' and survive.
But what is really happening to the country and who could possibly stop it? Only freedom loving patriots, banding together, will be able to attempt to turn the tide....and save the country.
A good book, action-packed and full of suspense, intrigue, and a little bit of mystery. There were a few discrepancies with the editing, but it absolutely did not detract from the story.
5.0 out of 5 starsFull of action, suspense and intrigue.

I finished this book this morning about the halfway point I realised this may be closer to the truth than fiction. First of all, I can see a correlation between events of today and events in the book. I also find a strong sense of family values and patriotism.
I found it to be an excellent book, well written, well researched and thought out. Full of action, suspense and intrigue.

I liked the beginning of this book, but it got pretty far-fetched. Someone with enough power to take over the country would be smart enough to have better security. I was glad it didn't have gory violence but it just wasn't a believable story to me
Set in 2036 "From Within" opens as the American economy ‘s declining, gas prices have skyrocketed, and protests continue unchecked. The government believes the answer to their problems lies in controlling business and have begun a takeover of food, oil companies, utilities, banks and the media using a new corporation, Central Authority Management to run them and the military and police units to stifle the unrest.
World Wide News Link’s popular and pragmatic newsman Marcus Braden is outspoken about the failing American economy but when CMA tries to silence him he’s invited to join the American Rights Foundation (ARF) sending the resistance group any information about CMA activities he can funnel their way.
In a secondary plot Will Richards, an outdoorsman and prepper living near Yosemite National Park, California is upset by a turn of events that reins havoc on the nearby town and the raiders pillaging his home and others set back from the highway. With his girlfriend, her parents and his mother Will flees to the mountains when the danger threatens their lives only to get caught up in a bigger scheme to stop the chaos endangering the country when he joins forces with the famous newscaster after saving him from a failed helicopter crash.
Fast-paced and action-packed the plot heats up as Marcus uncovers a diabolical plan to bomb major cities and Will and his girlfriend Lea are caught up in a theft at the local grocery store, only to face the raiders again when they threaten his home. Intensity and suspense escalate higher as the danger builds when Will, Alejandro and Lea discover a downed helicopter and Marcus strapped to pilot’s seat inside. A page -turner from beginning to end as the intrigue and mystery mount, Marcus and Will’s mission to stop the rising tide of violence moves quickly to an explosive ending with twists that will keep you captivated.
Creating the realistic and gripping atmosphere are compelling characters like handsome, smooth-talking, and stubborn Marcus Braden well-known anchor of a popular news program; amiable, resourceful and brave Will Richards; his kind, humorous and intuitive mother Beth; and the strong-willed and impulsive Lea Navarro.
In this chillingly realistic portrayal of an America under attack “From Within”, Brian Delaney has shaped a well-developed, credible story that will keep you riveted until the end.
