Publisher's Summary

This novella by NewYork 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.
Bob Petersen arrives with his daughter at the middle 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.
From the ISIS leader in Syria to the murderous rampages throughout the States, Day of Wrath reveals with chilling effect how national panic and paralyzing terror can bring a mighty country to a near standstill. Petersen's fight to save lives and stop the merciless gunmen provides edge-of-your-seat drama. This provocative work should stimulate an intense national debate.

Oh My Goodness...

William R, Forstchen wrote "One Second After," one of my favorite "awareness" books... it strongly affected me and many others. The cover and title of "Day of Wrath" kinda turned me off and I really didn't want to spend a credit for a 4 hour book... but I bought it anyway. I read it a week ago and needed that long to be able to write about it... didn't sleep well the night after I read it... and still pondering it.
It is timely, believable, horrifying and I want to send a copy to not just mine, but every senator and congressman. Forstchen said he didn't want to write it, that it was the hardest thing he has ever been challenged to write... but he felt obligated to open our eyes to the risks we face from foreign terrorists.
Not an entertaining read, rather a difficult "awareness" read. Oh my goodness...

Be Thankful This Book Is Short

This audiobook was hard to listen to. The narrator, sound quality, writing and plot were all superb, however, this is a relentlessly dark, morbid and plausible story. The satanic death cult of islam is described for what it is by this book, but that's only half of the message. The other half is the outright impotent cowards we have controlling every branch of our government, media and academics. The United States has created the best enemies money can buy while its citizens are lied to and distracted by politicians and the media conglomerates, and their rights are systematically removed by far leftist judges. This is widely understood but rarely delivered in such a persuasive manner as with this book.

If you have small children then you might want to think twice before listening. I'm not saying to bypass this book, just perhaps buying the actual book and reading it may be better. I imagine you would be able to pull away, or cautiously proceed at your own pace versus having the narrator thrust you forward, masterfully but without remorse, like being on a roller coaster from hell. This story builds a tempo quickly and doesn't let up until the very last word. It is brutal, heart wrenching, terrifying and realistic. It's made all the more so because you can actually imagine this story happening.

Ironically there's lots to say about this relatively short audiobook. I applaud the author for having the courage to write it. Yes, courage. It seems rare to find anyone who will honestly represent islam for what it is. If that offends you then ask why there aren't any islamic leaders that will speak out against the terrorist within its faith. Oh, I forgot, islam is a religion of peace.
