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?

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.

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!

True Allegiance? More like True Nonsense.

The books simple yet convoluted story would be fine if it was written by a high school senior for an creative writing project. Ben shows no understanding for middle eastern culture, and his prejudice towards people of middle eastern heritage is loud and clear.
His character structure is weak, and none of them show and signs of development.

Alt-Right propaganda

One on the mort ridiculous books I’ve ever read. It hides behind fiction to spread Lies.

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.

Awful Narration

Seriously. Where do they get some of these narrators? (Slow down! Maybe try for just a LITTLE variety in your inflection every once In a while? Take a breath now and then, at the very least!).

And then the story: predictable mellow drama. Can't believe I fell for the description.

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.

Doubtful @ 5 minutes, stopped listening at 45.

With lots of special effects it could make 'another one of those movies', but as a book it is a disappointment to me. Ben Shapiro is brilliant, insightful, a tenacious bull dog in real life. He is a hero. But his fiction is not up to those high standards. And where is the editing? Consistency, story line, plot, narrative. Way too much narrative for background in the middle of improbable action scenes. Narrator didn't have a terrific script to work with, and couldn't make it anything better.
I returned the book for credit.

Wow, I started this book and couldn't stop.

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