Publisher's Summary

Trent Reedy brings his action-packed, provocative trilogy about the second American Civil War to a stunning and stirring close in The Last Full Measure. In a YA trilogy like no other, Trent Reedy has raised the most primal questions of our national existence: Do we owe our greatest loyalty to our friends? Our state? Our country? Our party? How do we reconcile our individual rights and common needs? What keeps us all united - and what happens if we fall apart?

Now, in this third book, the Second Civil War has come to an end in Idaho. The Feds have taken the fight to other fronts, and Danny and his friends are free of US dominance. But that freedom comes with considerable costs, from Danny's disturbing flashbacks to the war, to the Brotherhood of the White Eagle, whose "security" for Freedom Lake looks more like outright thuggery. After Danny makes a shocking discovery about the Brotherhood's final aims, he and his friends lead a group of townspeople on a dangerous journey across a ravaged Idaho, hoping to build a better society of their own, and fulfill the dreams they had in what once was the United States.

Not as good as the first two

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Liked the first two books, didn't like the turn this one took. Thought he was trying to keep an even line between left and right until this book. His just another leftist artist, was hoping for more centrist. The production of these three books, was very well done. Wish there were more like them.

Would you ever listen to anything by Trent Reedy again?

Maybe.

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

I think I would listen to anything he narrates.

Do you think The Last Full Measure needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, I think I could have ended at the second book.

My new favorite book

I have never wrote a review for anything before but this book deserves a review. I started reading this series for a book report and I kept on reading because the books are so good. You find yourself becoming involved in the book and attached to the characters and the author finishes the series off extremely well but I wish there wasn't an ending to this trilogy.
