    Put it down and back away...

    The first book wasn't all that bad. This is where it's truly sinks in that you're reading a book written by a leftist wacko. By the time you get to Angels of Vengeance you're sure that Birmingham thinks that the military is nothing but a bunch of sickos, that anyone who believes in the security of our borders is akin to being a murderer and that only Fox is biased. The covers look really cool. The second and third books of this series are nauseating.

    more from this reviewer

    The sequel to Without Warning is a terrific exhilarating thriller

    Several years have passed since the catastrophic wave of energy destroyed the United States in 2003 that came like a tsunami Without Warning. Scientists remained baffled with what caused it, why it abruptly vanished a year later and how to prevent a return. In the meantime the White House moved to Seattle where American President James Kipper is frustrated with no answers and as is the case with the traumatized people struggling to endure, he fears what will happen if another such wave assaults the continent. Still he pushes forward with the greatest reconstruction project in the history of the world.

    President Kipper visits the Declared Security Zone of New York where militia and pirates rule the city and the burbs, but is greeted by an assassination attempt. At the same time in the breakaway republic of Texas, farmer Miguel Pieraro follows the path to citizenship in the New America until an ethnic cleansing campaign led by a rogue army officer destroys his family. In England, American army officer Caitlin Monroe struggles to survive an assault on her life. Finally, in the wasteland of the Middle East comes a major threat to what is left of the world. Between lawlessness on the eastern seaboard and what is occurring overseas and in Texas, Kipper, a builder by heart, needs to find his warrior fortitude as he is reluctant to confront anyone with America still reeling; but ignoring the threats to local security will destroy the United States permanently.

    The sequel to Without Warning is a terrific exhilarating thriller that grips the audience from start to finish. Heroes are everywhere from every walk of life whether they are city engineers turned POTUS, a Mexican-American farmer, an overseas officer and others risking their lives against ruthless lethal fully armed adversaries. Readers will enjoy this exhilarating post-apocalyptic tale that stands alone, but enhanced by reading what the wave caused first.

    Well written but...

    The book is an entertaining continuation to the book "Without Warning" but even 150 pages from the end I could see this story was not going to wrap up. Nothing was was brought to fruition and it leaves everything hanging at the end. The characters are varied and entertaining, the story is exciting and filled with detail but not dragging. Where is the climax? Sort of like the someone intended this to simply be a bridge to the next book. That being said, when the next book comes you will be in the dark if you do not read this one. I was a little disappointed, but not so discouraged that I will not read the next one in the line.

    Good sequel to Without Warning book

    This was a good 2 nd book in this series. My only complaint is it seemed to skip over a lot of information I wiuld have liked to know about how things developed after the wave.
    It just felt like it was setting up the next book instead of telling its own story.
    Having said that,it was still a good read with some interesting storyline developments especially of Sophie and her dad and the President .

    Loved it so much I was ticked the next book wasn't already available

    This is the second book in the series and I pre-ordered the third as soon as I got done with this one.

    Unlike many our-civilization-went-to-crap books, this series is believable and so are the characters. They don't always do the right thing or take the best option. It isn't only the men who are heroic, women step up to the plate, too. The characters grow and change and develop. The situation changes in unexpected ways. There are no BS plot twists, but the world in this book is chaotic enough to make fertile ground for all sorts of possibilities.

    Check out the plot and if that interest you, know that the book is well crafted and you won't be disappointed.

    fascinating

    Very scary, very possible, although I don't know where our enemies would get a Wave, but the collapse of some societal norms, almost overnight, seems likely under a similar circumstances and I would like the hope that there would be some of capable of getting their act together enough to pull the rest of us through and force us to stop panicking and start rebuilding. I do wish I had known that this was a series since I got the sequel first and then read the first book after. A little warning would have been nice.
