Bob Petersen arrives with his daughter at the Middle Grade school in Maine where he teaches, expecting another regular day but worried about what recent ominous news reports might portend. Suddenly his school -- along with many others across the United States -- is under attack. Gunmen burst in, slaughtering children and adults alike.

This novella by New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen imagines a horrifying scenario where, in the course of one day, the terrorist group ISIS carries out massacres in schools and on highways across the United States. With a surprisingly small but well-organized and ruthless force, the nightmarish devastation brings America to a state of near-paralysis.

Author of One Second After and Pillar to the Sky, this heart-stopping novella brings home just how fragile our defenses and infrastructure really are. It is also a story of heroic efforts to save lives, while sounding a wake-up call to American citizens and their government.

From the ISIS leader in Syria, to the murderous rampages throughout the U.S., Day of Wrath reveals with chilling effect how national panic and paralyzing terror at the spiraling violence can bring a mighty country to a near-standstill. Petersen's fight to save lives and stop the merciless gunmen provides edge-of-the-seat drama. Day of Wrath is a provocative work that should stimulate an intense national debate.

One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as the book everyone should read.

This book gives a wakeup call to those that want to leave citizens unable to defend themselves, their communities and their schools because of gun laws. While some books create drama by imagining an unbelievable story line, this book delivers a plot that could easily be tomorrow's headlines. Read it and then share with someone else. If you don't think the events in this story are possible, then you haven't been paying attention to the news around the world. Terrorism is closer than you think.

I have read a number or Mr. Forstchen's books. I was not given, offered or sent this book to review. I bought and finished it in one day. It is not long. It is horrific. It reads like many of the news sources I follow to get facts rather than censored opinions. I believe every single American should read it. To do so will require a strong stomach in places. It's eye-opening, honest and brutal. And it's coming to a city or town near us soon. I'll be re-reading it a few times over the next few months, especially after this election cycle. Sadly, the end comes with a hopeful note that is not. Five stars for a future coming soon.

This is not a book for the faint of heart. Mr Forstchen has said in many interviews that he did not want to write this book but felt he must. I was drawn in from the first page and didn't stop reading until I saw the words THE END. There were times during my reading that I was holding the book in one hand with my other hand over my mouth out of pure horror. The very next day I called my daughter's school and inquired about their preparedness plan in the event of a school invasion. I was shocked to find out their first line of defense is a buzzer and a locked glass door. PLEASE read this book, then call your local school and ask for their procedure. Buy a copy of this book for yourself and your child's school it will be worth the $14.00 or so investment. May God Bless America.

I enjoyed this book, well written and very absorbing. The plot is very plausible and the action is non-stop.

Well written and believable. Something like this could be the end of our experiment in democracy.

Everyone should read this book to learn about the world we live in today. People need to wake up and be aware

Always based on facts, this historian makes it easier for us, as Americans, to comprehend what the Congress already knows and often denies regarding the state of the global tendency toward war. We would be wise to pay attention through fiction, rather than via direct experience later on....

Was so intent I was yelling at character in the book! So scary and so realistic and so much a part of our current climate. Biggest issue, I think, will be those who poo poo it and say it's fear mongering or prejudicial, because being PC is more important than American safety.

This horrifying, apocalyptic, and completely plausible story had me riveted from beginning to end. Every American should read this book and think about what they will do when this comes to our shores. Awful, required reading.

This is a story we may not want to hear but we need to. It brings to the front just how predictable our system is and how it can be tragically ripped apart, all at the cost of our children. Read the story then use an Interstate Highway or take a drive to your children's school. Think about what you see!

I did like it but it just didn't tell a complete story. I have read dozens of zombie novels and this one fits in about the middle of what i have read. There is no explanation of where the "plague" came from, and a very weak survivalist context. I have not yet purchased the follow up books and i probably won't

This author goes into too much detail about an attack on the U.S. He gives too much credence to Isis and their murderous thugs and what they do. Yes, this scenario could very likely happen here-but let's not give ideas to people This author is supposed to be a Christian,but the language at times and the description of the attacks lead one to think otherwise--I know what's going on in the world, I'm not a prude
