    This story begins with a teenage farm boy running for his life into a Florida swamp with a pack of killer dogs and a half dozen murdering national police officers hunting him. From the very first sentence to the last, the action grows. The protagonist may be a teenager, but he is going on thirty; he maybe an "uneducated hick", but his mother was not, and she saw to it he was home-schooled. His war veteran grandfather trained him to survive being hunted by the deadliest predator on Earth: Man. Patrick Timucua Paine becomes a man, a killer, and a hater all in one morning of violence and pain. He wages a personal war against "Dissident Control" (national police). ("Timucua" is in honor of a murdered Native American tribe wiped out by disease and war hundreds of years ago when Spanish invaders landed on the beaches of what later became Florida. There are many ties to history in the story.)

    The author skillfully weaves just enough information into the plot, without resorting to info-dumping, to give the reader an idea of why the government has become tyrannical while concentrating on the main character and his small circle of friends. These people are salt of the earth and are of the ilk that built America and defeated tyranny again and again. There is a Libertarian undertow, but this story is not about politics or war; it is about what people value, live, hope, suffer, kill, and die for.

    Patrick is asked to become a leader in the resistance not only because he gets results with the least number of casualties, but because of his character, and that character attracts a beautiful young woman to him. He sees her as his opposite, the counterbalance to all the evil in the world, but in many ways she is as strong as he is, and he's not afraid to admit it. The skirmishes are heated at times, but the conflict boiling in Patrick's and his love's heart is just as searing.

    The author's main character is bigger than life in most ways but very human and vulnerable at the same time, just as the women in the story are feminine but as strong as any man inside. (One woman is something of an Amazonian but still very much a woman, and Patrick's love, Sharon L'Amour, is beautiful but deadly with her late brother's rifle.) And, while there are villains with little redeemable qualities, some psychopaths, many are victims of circumstance and struggle to walk a fine, dangerous line between following orders and committing murder, some go over to the side of the resistance.

    This book will immerse you in a world where the finest human beings to ever live are the ones called animals and government is the cruelest beast to cast its shadow on Earth. Total reader immersion in the story is what all fiction writers strive for, and the author has achieved that goal.

    Great story, but the auther isn't a vet and his military inaccuracies are a little distracting.

    Admirable treatise on freedom, but hard to read.

    I read and enjoyed Mr. Grit's Apocalypse Law series. This book I found to be too much rhetoric for me - despite the fact that I totally agree with his ideas about government, freedom and individual responsibility. Found this one hard to read and probably won't pursue the series. Too much lecturing and not enough story.
