Please have book 1 redone.. I almost passed on the whole series because it is so bad. I do not believe many people will sit through it like I did

Can't get enough of this series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Holding Their Own II to be better than the print version?

I own all the printed editions of this series before buying the audio versions. I enjoy the audio versions just as much, depending on the narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Holding Their Own II?

There is not just one moment that stands out more than the others.

What does Frank Collison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Collison does an exceptional job at bringing the intensity and feeling to this story. His rhythm is perfect and the cadence was outstanding.

Rise of the resistence.

Book two begins deciding the final disposition of the gold recovered from The Force after their demise. The existence of the gold has traveled far and wide and there are several people interested in possessing such. Even though gold is virtually worthless at the moment, there is the hope that the world may return to something resembling normal some day and gold may once again have value. As the tale continued a new group challenging the military and political control of the country made itself known. This resistance was comprised of 30% of the active military and 40% of the reserves. The resistance movement is known as The Independents. We will discover more about them, the important role they will play in future volumes, and what impact they will have on Bishop and Terri.

Good Story

If you're looking for survival tips, this book won't help. Other than that, it's a very good story. Narration is much, much better as well. Lots of action. Bishop's slightly sarcastic, tongue in cheek humor keeps a smile on your face, too. My only reluctance for a 5 score is that Bishop becomes a bit of a Hollywood ninja in this and later books. A name that strikes fear in the hearts of grown men and gives children nightmares.

Regardless, a worthwhile read. Highly recommend.
