Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Ben Shapiro's new novel asks how close are we to our country's collapse - and will we be able to stop it once it begins?

America is coming apart. An illegal immigration crisis has broken out along America's Southern border, there are race riots in Detroit, a fiery female rancher-turned-militia leader has vowed revenge on the president for his arrogant policies, and the world's most notorious terrorist is planning a massive attack that could destroy the United States as we know it. Meanwhile the president is too consumed by legacy-seeking to see our country's deep peril.

Brett Hawthorne is the youngest general in the United States Army - and he's stuck, alone, behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. He's the last lost soldier of a failed war, fighting to stay alive and make it back home - but will he be able to stop the collapse of America in time?

    "Great story; horrible narrator "

    Ben Shapiro's first novel was engaging and well written. Here's hoping there is a sequel in the works. Unfortunately, the narrator is one of the worst I've heard. Character portrayals were average but his voice when serving as the narrator was awful and distracting.

    "Bad story, bad Brad Thor ripoff, the worst narrator I have ever heard"

    I have a lot of respect for Ben Shapiro. He is a strong conservative voice and a superb debater. He is not a fiction writer. This drivel is a Brad Thor ripoff taken to the most dramatic degree. As a scare tactic, maybe the book is effective. As a captivating story, it is decidedly not effective. The characters are so one dimensional in terms of their morality and ethics that I was actually reminded of Ayn Rand's characters. Don't read this book.

    As if it couldn't get any worse, the narrator of this book is completely unlistenable. I'll grant that he didn't have much to work with but at times his incompetence actually overshadowed the dreadfulness he was reading.

    Please spare us the sequel. The cash grabs Ben Shapiro does on college campuses are bad enough. His fiction writing is plain criminal.

    Story
    "Like Ben. This book, not so much."
    Any additional comments?

    I like this genre of story, so I took a chance on what was for me an unknown author. I'm familiar with Ben from his show and his speeches on campus. I like him and his viewpoint a lot.

    The writing was just OK. The story slightly less so. The characters were not real, but sort of cartoonish. But, I could be wrong about the writing. It was virtually impossible to evaluate through the AWFUL narration.

    Every so often I would think that the narration was computer generated, but then the narrator would place the inflection on a word that not even a poor algorithm would choose. It was very distracting.

    "Overall good read."

    I like the content. Although it was a little hard to follow at times due to the robotic sounding narration.

    "Gripping story, intriguing perspective!"

    Super interesting. A little bit of rated R language, and a whole lot of rated R liberals just being liberal buffoonery.

    Narration was excellent. Great characterization and delivery. This book was a real treat. If Shapiro keeps this up, I will likely read every word he has ever written. This was my first exposure to him outside of YouTube and I was positively delighted! Keep 'me coming Ben!

    A thriller from beginning to end, I can't wait for the second book to come out.

    "I didn't know this book didn't have an ending"

    I liked the premise, the plot was interesting. But when I start a book, I like to know that, by the end, the book will end. This one barely got started, and I saw no mention that this was a trilogy or whatever when I bought it.

    "Sophomoric tripe"

    Terrible dialogue between characters. Juvenile, unbelievable storyline. Hackneyed plot points. Doomsday fantasy story so farcical it laughable.

    "Good story, but"

    I stopped listening to the book several times as I found it difficult listening to the narrator's voice. In my humble opinion it is better suited for a children's book.

    That said I look forward to the next book, hopefully with a different narrator.
