Blood Republic is a political-thriller for a divided modern America. Corrupt politicians, biased media, NSA surveillance, and viral hate; Blood Republic examines extremism through a heart-pumping thriller with the fate of the country at stake. Will America survive its next election or collapse into a second civil war of conservative versus liberal?
During the closing hours of the tightest presidential election in US history, firebrand Annie Daniels is a Democratic-socialist senator determined to win the White House. She dreams of eradicating injustice and, hopefully, saving her dying daughter's life. Major Amos Daniels, her conservative Green Beret brother, might have something to say about that, though, if her plans go against his faith. As an Electoral College tie nears, the country erupts into rioting, and Annie and Amos are thrust to opposite ends of a constitutional crisis with guns drawn. Will the Daniels family find common ground above ideology to prevent a second civil war? Or will an unknown enemy-of-the-state escape justice while pushing the nation into chaos?
Blood Republic is an intelligent thriller described as combining the philosophical depth of an Any Rand or George Orwell novel with the excitement of such story-tellers as Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy, and Vince Flynn. Politically independent in tone, Blood Republic will make you question your own political and philosophical allegiances while keeping you on the edge of your seat guessing as to who the true villain is in a divided modern America. Can peace and reason overcome hate, or has the country already been pushed too far?
