War ravages the globe. One man becomes the center of a manhunt, the face of a movement, and starts down a path that none of us are equipped to handle. We all fantasize about being a fuckin hero. It's never like that though. When the shit hits the fan, the guilt sets in. We save one person, ten more die. How does a man make those choices?

Great book! Can't wait for more from this author.
If you’re expecting a wild action tale or remake of Red Dawn with this book, you’d be mistaken. On the other hand, you won’t be disappointed with what you find. While the story centers on an ex-super duper soldier accidentally building a resistance movement against invading Chinese troops, they spend surprisingly little time actually fighting and a lot more giving speeches. The focus here is less on the war and more on the private emotional journeys the hero and his sidekicks take from mild-mannered civilians to merciless guerrillas. A string of betrayals and self-created disasters then keep the pressure ramped up and the fun going. You feel throughout that the guerrillas and the US in general would handily when the war, if they could only get out of their own way. The real enemy the good guys always struggle with isn’t a foreign army, but themselves and their own self-destructive tendencies. Unlike most of these WW3 tales, the author gives and maintains a clear and coherent strategic narrative. Personally, I found the details of the broader war extremely far-fetched, but at least having a clear understanding of the “big picture” made for a more interesting read. While there are a number of technical errors with weapons and tactics, the author’s skilled handling of his complicated and self-destructive hero and well-fleshed out supporting cast overshadows such details. Overall, the prose and style reads more like a screenplay than most novels. That’s neither good nor bad, but merely a taste preference. While I can’t give this 5 stars because of so many events and decisions stretching the realm of believability, there’s no denying that the story is pretty unique. All in all, a fun read that’s worth the time, even if it is not the most thought provoking.
Incredibly well written. Can't wait to see where the series goes!
Very good but for some editing issues. The only big one was where the main character becomes fatally wounded and you think that he is gone, which he clearly is, even though he seems to be rescued, and the other characters even mourn his loss, only for the reader to discover later that he was with them the whole time simply in a coma? But the book was good enough that I could forgive this goof and simply bump over the occassional typo like IF instead of OF or HE instead of AND. All in all it was good and enjoyable especially considering its larger than normal length, and I will look for more. So a still well earned Kudo. Dale M. Baranoski
Almost 800 pages. First person. Very poorly written. No punctuation other than periods. Uses lower case I when upper case should be used. Sentence structure is laughable. Very bloodly and violent. Profanity. Chinese are taking over the USA. Start out by overtaking a big box store, but shoppers fight back. Several of which are or were marine. HooRah! Not for me. A man's book. 18 and up. Free. Ugh. AD
Attention grabbing story but I found the spelling and typo errors to be somewhat distracting. I thought the ending was incomplete and I hope there are going to be sequels coming to complete the story.
