Voice in the Wilderness, by H. L. Wegley is book one of Against All Enemies. This is the first book I have read by this author. It won’t be the last! I enjoyed the fast-paced, non-stop action that went on throughout the entire book. It started off with a bang and didn’t stop. Main character, KC, has discovered some top-secret information and she doesn’t know where to go with it. The one man she tries to get help from, eh, it doesn’t end well for him. Espionage, terror, potential war, martial law…can she, one person, stop these thing from coming? She finds herself on the run from the very people she used to work for. Will they really label her a terrorist to the United states? How can she stay safe and hidden, yet get the word out that there is a very serious problem looming over the United States? Along with the action and suspense, there is also a bit of a romance in bloom. To find out if the relationship works, and if KC can stay hidden and alive, you will have to read Voice in the Wilderness. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite Voice in the Wilderness by H.L. Wegley is the opening book in the Against All Enemies series, a thriller with great spiritual and political undertones, and a stunning indictment of a system that fosters dictatorship and a mindless form of capitalism. The US is heading towards martial law and the future looks very bleak and grim. But one person, KC Banning, a network specialist, discovers President Hannan's tyrannical bent. Now she knows too much and is branded a terrorist. She has only one person to run to; Brock Daniels, a childhood sweetheart turned writer and reputable blogger. Those who still remain loyal to the constitution read Brock’s blog and find some iota of hope to hold onto, but for how long? Soon Brock and Banning will be running for their lives as Hannan’s men come for them. H.L. Wegley creates a story that will have readers spellbound and utterly captivated. The plot is appealing and it features compelling characters. Readers will love to follow the story about the relationship between Daniels and Banning, a relationship that is held in place by a very fragile thread. I enjoyed how the two characters evolved. It is surprising to read a thriller that seems to speak about the current US political situation with such brilliance. I couldn’t help but think about the current US President leading the nation towards the worst form of dictatorship as I read on. The conflict is huge and it propels the story swiftly forward. Voice in the Wilderness features a great plot, awesome characters, and a political setting that reflects the drama the world is witnessing in US politics today. It’s a prophetic work.

The first book in the Against All Enemies series is a winner. My own thinking resonates with the underlying premise of the book: too many people are looking to the U.S. government to rescue them and making very little effort to examine what is going on all around. The popular view among many is that the government will feed them, clothe them, keep them well, protect them, and make them happy. The scary part is most, if not all, nations in the past that have gone this route are no longer in existence today. We need a voice in the wilderness to point people in the right direction and get them to take responsibility. This story demonstrates what can happen when a leader stops serving the constituents and fails to fulfill his oath of office but rather seeks to bring about his own elevation to that of supreme ruler. KC Banning and Brock Daniels were childhood friends who had a special relationship, but grew apart after KC’s father became a senator and moved the family to Washington. When things start to rip apart for KC in Washington, she beats a hasty retreat to Oregon and her old friend. Can he help her? Will he? Is she being fair to run to him for help when the president declares her to be a terrorist? What can two people do to stop a president who is bent on destroying the nation and has the resources at his command to do it? Maybe it is already too late. The book is supercharged with suspense, action, danger, and intrigue. Romance and faith play an integral part in this wonderful story. I recommend this to every patriotic citizen. Though fictional in nature, this is one scenario of what is possible with the wrong people in control. I received a complimentary ARC of this book from the author. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.

This is a powerful story—a powerful reveille for all Americans. Most of us are aware of our country’s past efforts to preserve our personal liberties. In this gritty novel, H. L Wegley shows us that today is no different. Falseness and subterfuge can still attack our freedom, our very right to exist. The author takes us through a death-defying maze of perils that could become our own country’s future. When this evil is couched in subtleties and backed by political and military power, it becomes the ultimate power—the ultimate danger. The deep analytical nature of this book, coupled with its blazing action, shows us ever so clearly what a handful of brave people can accomplish. Voice in the Wilderness is an exciting wakeup call as well as a fast, thrilling read. It was such a satisfying read I have already started on book 2 of the author’s Against All Enemies series.

Loved this book, the characters, the action, and the constant intrigue! The story came to life at the very beginning and never ceased to be entertaining. The two main characters, KC and Brock, are both likeable and real. When Brock says, “Our founding fathers trusted God in 1776, and we can trust Him nearly a quarter of a millennium later,” you feel the timelessness of God and that a future does exist as long as brave people still exist. This was an excellent read. Can’t wait to read the next one!

Voice in the Wilderness is a very exciting story. With a fast take off, there is heart-pounding action to grab the reader from the very beginning. I love this type of book, where the power of one collides with the seeming weakness of ordinary individuals and their ideals. In this case, we have a rogue USA president vs. a popular blogger and a network specialist. The main characters are well-developed, and as readers, we come to know them very well. KC is a fearless and tenacious female lead and is my favorite character. Brock’s past hinders his present and his ability to fully grasp the gifts God has given him. Throughout the story, we see both of these two characters grow in many ways, which is very gratifying. For me, the story bogged down somewhat in the middle of the book. Perhaps, more dialog or interaction between KC and Brock would have changed the pace. It seems they continued rehashing things over in their own minds, but were not moving forward in their relationship. The last of the book was full of furious decisions and actions. I was reading and turning pages as quickly as possible to see what would happen next. This first book in the Against All Enemies series is very good, and I’m looking forward to read the next book. I recommend Voice in the Wilderness to readers who enjoy romantic suspense. I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.

This is the first book I have read by Harry Wegley but for sure it will not be the last. He is a new Author to me and I love this book. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Fraught with tension from the very first page it does not let up through the entire book, I am reading it and thinking that it is a page out of today's newspaper. It is terrifying and very real. The characters and the situations are so real that you feel like you are there with them. It is hard to put the book down because you need to know what happens next. I appreciate that the author does not use foul language even though you know his characters are speaking it. Also I appreciate the clean romance and the references to God and the characters living to please Him instead of themselves. All in all this is first rate writing by a man who knows what he is writing about. I heartily recommend this book. If you like suspense/romance/thrillers you will love this one. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

I picked up H. L. Wegley's Voice in the Wilderness one night to read before I went to sleep. Big mistake! Instead of reading for a half hour to unwind, I couldn't put it down. It's a political thriller, with romance, about two people who must decide if they are willing to sacrifice their lives to save the United States. Imagine if a group of people in power wanted to completely take over our country and they used the military and NSA to do it, and two people stood between them and victory. That's why I couldn't put it down. I had to see how it turned out for Brock and KC. H. L Wegley has the credentials to write a book like this--he's served as an Air Force Intelligence Analyst and as a Weather Officer. He knows his stuff!

eb’s Dozen: The USA Needs a Voice In the Wilderness of Today’s Dangerous Environment I love finding a new author who I love immediately upon reading their book. H. L. Wegley is such an author. The first entry in his newest series, Against All Enemies, Voice in the Wilderness, caught my attention immediately and held me in thrall throughout the entire book. I kept putting the book down so I wouldn’t finish reading so quickly. Susan May Warren calls the book, “A terrifyingly real political thriller!” KC Banning, a network specialist, has found President Hannan has an illegal entry into the nation’s security systems. She and her mentor, Sen. Richards, have uncovered Hannan’s nefarious plot to take over the US. As she goes to meet her mentor, she receives a text message to “UR being set up.Watch ur back, PL.” They discuss the situation and decide KC needs to get out of town and into hiding. As she lopes away from the Lincoln Memorial where they had met, she hears a single gunshot, realizes her mentor has been assassinated and that the situation is now Code Red. Her girlhood friend, Brock Daniels, a writer and a Christian, has become the nation’s most-read blogger. His blog gives hope to a nation badly in need of CPR. He is operating out of a yurt located on the ranch where his and KC’s families used to spend the summer. KC knows the only person she can trust is Brock—and heads west to their secret message site to find him. They’d buried a glass jar they’d promised to leave messages to each other in whenever they were in the area. KC is elated to find Brock is so close by. She’s now been labeled a “domestic terrorist” by the Hannan administration and is literally running for her life. So starts a journey to both keep them safe and expose the tyrannical Hannan and his plans. Are they in their positions, with their unique talents, for “such a time as this?” You will want to buy Voice In the Wilderness, a political thriller of the first order and join them on their flight and mission. KC and Brock are very believable characters. I love how Wegley gives us the backstory in pieces so we can understand the obvious chemistry between them. Both of them carry burdens from the past they will have to surmount before they can admit the attraction they feel for the other. I found their struggles very realistic and cared from the outset about their eventual fates. There are twists and turns at every juncture—you won’t begin to figure out the ending. Both my husband and I give the political thriller Voice In the Wilderness five stars! I can’t wait for the next book in the series! H.L Wegley served in the Air Force as both an Intelligence Analyst and a Weather Officer. In civilian life, he’s been a research scientist and then developed computing systems for Boeing for twenty years before retiring near Seattle. He is multi-published with a four-book inspirational series, two nonfiction books, and four more novels on the way. Contact H.L. at www.H.L.Wegley.com.
