Publisher's Summary

Not with an iron fist, but with nuclear words.  

Upon scripted words of unification, the American president delivers an ultimatum for the citizens of the United States of America. Remain loyal to The Great Experiment that is America or relocate to Texas and Louisiana, former states that President Barry Bigly forced to secede from the Union. The New Sovereign Nation of Texiana begins as a sanctuary for those who predicted President Bigly's tyrannical rule, only to become a desolate wasteland shut off from the rest of the world by a massive border wall. 

As the Texianans struggle to adjust to their new lifestyles, the American president has other plans to keep their lack of loyalty at bay; raining down deadly chemicals upon the Texianans while preaching propaganda across the airwaves, which unknowingly creates a horde of victims within the wall's borders. Not willing to stand by as the American president methodically eradicates all that do not believe in his ideals for the next evolution of the United States, three young adults join forces to rise up and restore peace and true unity once again.

More than just another zombie story

I loved this dystopian story. It feels more like part 1 of a larger novel than a stand alone book, but it's an awesome start! I can't wait for part 2 so I can find out what happens next.

Secession is about a president gone rogue. This president, though a fictional character, definitely resembles Trump in many ways (with a little Obama flair). Maybe I'm just projecting my own current political frustration...

There's just enough character development to be interesting and the plot moves along quickly.
Narration is absolutely spot on!

Very scary - a little too close to reality

This story reflects a world that could be if the current political situation continues unchecked. It's fiction, yes, but there's a lot of truth in it and frankly it scared me. Great story, well written, honest and real.

A good premise but the pacing is off

It is a good idea for a story. I'm not sure whether this is the author's first attempt or what but it just didn't flow right.
The story felt rushed and very basic with no real fleshing out of the characters.
although the narrator did try to add some variety in voicing he was not able to overcome what, IMHO, it's just a poorly written story.

Enjoyable exploration of modern political trends

This book envisions a United States where the President separates Texas and Louisiana and removes everyone who disagrees with his interpretation of the constitution and deports everyone to the new area who dos not agree with him. He then builds a guarded wall around the entire area. The main characters in the book are 3 young people 18, 19, 21 who are white, black and Hispanic. Each have their own view of victimhood and must learn to work together to survive when the President orders the area sprayed with a chemical that ether kills or makes people deranged.

The book is great as it is well written. The action is believable and possible. The character flaws and the young people having to grow up quickly is well done. The narration is very good.

This book was provided free of charge in expectation of an honest review.
