Publisher's Summary

The news is full of disturbing events today. There's war and rumors of war. There's the false recovery of the economy. Faith in the US economy is extremely low. Foreign banks have either slowed their purchases of Treasury Bonds or, in a few cases, begun unloading them. We have a current election that is rife with corruption, extreme partisanship, and outright fraud. It would appear the left in the country is ready to do about anything to see their candidate elected. While this is very concerning today, what does it mean to the election process as a whole? What will the next one look like? Does anyone believe they will actually improve? Or will the next batters up to the ultimate home plate simply make it even worse, take it even further down the rabbit hole?
In reality, it matters not who wins. They can be there for only eight years. But the election sets the precedent for the next one, and the next one will push the limits even further, if there is one.
We've all heard of the spooky bank holiday. This sort of thing usually happens on a weekend, and on Monday morning you simply cannot access your account. You have no access to your money. Don't think it can happen? Neither did the people of Greece. Or Germany when they were limited to 50 euros a day. What would you do? Do you keep cash on hand? Do you trust your bank? If you put $20,000 into the bank and then ask for $10,000 back, you have to fill out forms and justify your need for it. Then they tell the government about it, and you face further sanctions. Here in America, we think we're free. Well, we are currently listed as number 20 on the scale of freedom. Think about that. Number 20! Chile is ahead of us! But we have our guns, and all of those other countries don't. And indeed we do, for now. But what if they were to take those away? What do we do then? And before you say you would take to the streets and fight back, think for a minute what that really means. Then watch a few videos on Syria or Ukraine. It's all fun and games until someone puts a tank main-gun round through your house. What follows is just one idea of what this could look like. I'm not saying this is the way it would go. It's just some thoughts on it. On how people could act. What the government may do in response and how people might respond in turn.

Great new saga!

I have listened to all of the survivor series by this author and narrator. It took a bit to get into this book and get on board with the direction it was going. This is a different view on the collapse of our nation but just as with the "Home" series it is a viable and surreal tale of what our reality could easily become. Love the narrator- I hope Duke Fontaine continues to represent this author's voice.

Missed opportunity

If you think Fox News and Info Wars are real news and blindly hate liberals this is for you. The strawmen of liberals taking your guns and social justice warriors working with the "Deep State" and with the corrupt Democrats in government is driven from the very start. This is ironic when it is currently the other side in power, working with other countries to undermine America and show record levels of corruption, pay to play and attacking allies.
The narration is great as usual and a highlight of these books. Having read all the Survivalist series, which are great, so far this seems like a copy and paste job with the characters been far too similar to previous books, even down to the put on English accent like Dalton. It was a missed opportunity, there was no need to go total tinfoil hat with conspiracies that would make Alex Jones shake his head. A financial collapse is a very real threat and doesn't need a ludicrous reason to happen and constant partisan nonsense made it very hard to palate.
I know most preppers come from one side of the aisle but there is no need to play to your base, it adds nothing to the story. Maybe in the next book we might get more of the gear and gun porn we like and less of the DHS and limp wristed liberals are evil narrative.

Another great informative story from A.American

I enjoyed the survivalist series & was hoping that this would be as good. It is. Lots of good info if you listen carefully. The only things that spoilt it a little were that "Daniel" is a bit slow on the uptake & a bit more character history would be good. I am happy to recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how our world may change in time
