Amazing story!!!

It’s amazing how four different writers can write a book that flows so seamlessly. There were several lovable characters, I’m hoping we get to hear more from again soon. I loved the writing and performance by Kevin Pierce!

Wonderful

Jason Galt here, proud DD12 supporter and long time reader and listener of all the authors represented here. What a great listen this was and how fun to be able to pick up on the suddulties as the baton was passed. Y'all keep writing and I'll keep buying.

Loved it!!!

I wasn't sure how the story would go with different authors writing separate parts. It worked. I truly enjoyed the story. Always love the narrator.

And Four Shall Become One

How four authors with their own styles create a seamless, fantastic and inspiring piece of work is beyond me. Having experienced 3 of the 4 authors before and having a book written about my beloved Veterans was amazing. I loved the characters! I loved the different scenarios! There were moments I cried, moments I laughed out loud! So many well developed moments that I barely put the book down! This is a piece of art, like a beautiful river with its ebb and flow! You want to experience everything it has to offer, hoping it doesn’t end! That they donate the proceeds to help Veterans...makes this one of my most favorite stories. I bought it on Audible but will purchase in book form as well!

Quilt wonderfully sown

Truly an artful quilt with seamless patches woven together and tied off beautiful at the end. Kevin Pierce did an excellent job as narrator! Here’s hoping to a book 2!

These authors never dissapoint!

I won this book in a member promotion for the DD12 facebook group. I have previously purchased many many books by the member authors including those who collaborated on this one. Overall I really liked the book. following are my thoughts on a few things:

Story/Plot: I've read collaborative works in the past and sometimes they can be patchy. I think they did a great job making the story flow. The plot had some interesting points that are not over used in this genre so bonus points for that. I also liked how they tied in the DD12 group and characters from other works. It did feel that it was written for more of a Young Adult than an Adult audience, but hey anything that will help "edumacate" the generation of snowflakes out there is ok in my book. I bet none of them could even fathom life without personal freedom let alone cell phones.

Narrator: Kevin Pierce... one of the best narrators in the business. He can make even a boring book sound interesting! (disclaimer, this book was NOT boring)

Length: This is the only issue I have with this book as well as with many others in this genre, For this particular story I would have liked a little more background on how everything unfolded as well as a glimpse into the future unless of course other books are planned to make this a series.
