Publisher's Summary

America might be dead, but Nick Angriff will kick your ass to resurrect her. 

Lt. General Nick Angriff has spent his adult life protecting family and country from a world of terrorism spinning out of control. On the battlefield, off the grid, in clandestine special task forces and outright black ops, Angriff never wavers from duty. But when a terror attack on Lake Tahoe kills his family, he's left with only the corrosive acid of revenge...that is, until a hated superior officer reveals the deepest of all secret operations. Against the day of national collapse, a heavily armed military unit rests in cryogenic storage, to be awakened when needed, and Angriff is named its commander. 

Fifty years later he wakes to find the USA destroyed and predatory warlords roaming the ruins. Stalked by assassins bent on seizing his command for their own purposes, Angriff has to prepare for war while avoiding murder. Because the only wall still shielding survivors from slavery and death are the men and women of The Last Brigade.

Better than expected!

This ended up being a pretty fun book. I will definitely get the second when it comes out (hopefully soon). It took me a few chapters to get into the book, but if you give it a chance you will be rewarded.

Damn good

Course as an old Army chick and love this stuff. Takes me back. Military hardware, weapons, soldiers, platoons and squads. Didn’t know if I enjoy being propelled into the future but the characters made that a moot point. Loved it. On to the next....

Worth the read

Great premise. Just didn’t need the whole book to set the series up. Definitely good enough to get me to buy the second book. But if it’s as slow as this one it will be the last

Awful book

The premise sounded good. But I didn’t make it through the first chapter. Sadly the author didn’t take the time to research many of the things he wrote about. When the main character was described as wearing two Desert Eagles in twin shoulder holsters I pulled the plug.

I’m hooked

I was given this book free in return for an honest review.

This has the makings of a great series. I love the characters and the story is great. The main character is now one of my favourites and I personally love the quotes before each chapter.

The narration is great and I will now be looking for more books narrated by this guy. I couldn’t stop listening and can’t wait to listen to book 2.
