Overview

Phoenix Rising by William W. Johnstone, J. A. Johnstone

"The Land Of The Free" Is No Longer Free

The new President of the United States is sharing the wealth, rewriting the Constitution, and changing the National Anthem. America's liberals are thrilled with the election of the first foreign-born candidate. But when President Ohmshidi begins to implement his radical agenda-banning oil production, slashing military budgets, and establishing a "New World Order"-our once-great nation becomes easy pickings for a deadly new wave of Muslim extremists, who rename America. . .the Islamic Republic of Enlightenment.

It's Time To Take Back America

Enter Jake Lantz, a battle-seasoned army major and ace helicopter pilot who refuses to stand by and watch his country go down in flames. Assembling a ragtag team of action-ready soldiers and patriots, Jake establishes Firebase Freedom-America's last defense against the violent, lawless thugs and "Army of Allah" that has taken over. Jake's mission: Take back America. Give the people liberty-and give the enemy death. . .

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers Favorite "Phoenix Rising: Firebase Freedom" by William W. Johnstone & J. A. Johnstone is an interesting book. It is fiction but in today’s political climate it seems it could be very real. The President of the United States, Mehdi Ohmshidi, won the election with the promise of “fundamentally transforming America.” His changes are not as expected. President Ohmshidi announces that he has always been Muslin and will be turning America into an Islamic nation. Under presidential orders all Americans must now declare their beliefs and allegiance to Allah. Jake Lantz, a war veteran, along with a group of American patriots, form an alliance known as the Phoenix Group. They set up camp and do whatever it takes to restore the United States of America to its original condition. It involves going against all of the New Order’s rules. They are more than willing to do whatever it takes even when it includes stealing, murdering, lying and cheating to win. "Phoenix Rising" got my attention from the very first word. This book is the political answer to the 'Left Behind Series'. It is very real and scary, because this can really happen today or tomorrow or next week or next month. Johnstone gives us a very real peek into a future that no longer allows the freedoms we have fought for and defended since America was founded. "Phoenix Rising" is, however, a fictional story with strong characters and an intriguing plot. It is a definite page turner that will keep you up late into the night. Johnstone captures your imagination and keeps you wanting more. I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in this series. "Phoenix Rising: Firebase Freedom" is a five star winner.

Great read, but frightening too when you consider that this could well portend the future of our country the way it is going now. William Johnstone died several years ago, and a few writers have been carrying on his name, quite well I think. Whoever wrote this book did an outstanding job. It is a shame, though, that the publishers have created an imaginary nephew in JA Johnstone, to rob the actual authors of the credit they deserve.

Taking current events and politics and pushing them to anarchy. Mix in survival, military action and American patriotism, add a good pace and you have an entertaining page turner. Will be getting the next installment in the series!

I loved this book.  I stayed up for almost two days reading it.  I think it was well written and I can see where the story and our current goings on somewhat overlap.

Just finished reading Phoenix Rising during the last few weeks of Debt Debate in Washington. What a great way to spend the summer. Enjoyed it and hope there will be more like this to follow want to know what happens to Team Phoenix and how they team up with other groups around the country. Have come to expect a good read when ever I see the Johnstone name on a book cover to have a fun and good read. This book would be a good gift to any Democrat and Obama supporters for Christmas this year maybe they will change their Mind next year.
