Sides must be chosen as the war heats up

The illusion of safety at the ranch is shattered, and Luke and his family learn that sides must be chosen. The internal war is heating up, and we learn more about the different factions and how things became so splintered. Regular citizens can not just wait it out, because many are getting swept up in the plans of others. An old friend arrives to help Luke, but he may not be in time to save the Messner clan. Pat Young does an excellent job narrating the book, drawing us into the story. I still think he is the perfect person for this book; his performance really brings out Luke’s personality. Highly recommended.

Teen Rambo

This is the 4th installment of this series that I haven't finished yet. I won't listen to a 5th.
The story is filled with "slap my own back" accolades about how much he is a natural born killer at the ripe young age of 16. The self promotion of how deadly he is has even gained him the respect of a full bird Colonel, who gave him a Humvee as a token of his high esteem for killing 16 bad guys single handed with a knife, rock, and grenades.

I'm no psychologist, but this author has found his forum to indulge his fantasy as being a teenage Rambo. Probably because he doesn't possess these SOG skills except while playing a video game.

Why would trained military personnel, including his father, seek advise on strategy and tactics from a teenager who is barely of legal age to drive? Anyway, I digress.

The narrator delivers an excellent performance. One salvation to this book.

...and can someone tell me if "curiouser" is even a word? I tried to look it up, but maybe my dictionary app needs to be updated.
