The Visitors, the fifth book in the 299 Days series, follows Grant Matson, the Team, and other Pierce Point residents as they adjust to a rapidly changing post-Collapse reality. When the Team is summoned to bust a meth lab and protect their neighbors, they find themselves in an intense crime scene that results in the community having to decide innocence, guilt, and punishment. Adjusting to this “new normal” is a challenge to Grant and others as they navigate a world where Pop-Tarts cost $45 a box, neighbors die from easily preventable conditions, and what remains of the former U.S. Government is deliberately choosing who they will and will not help.
As tensions grow in Pierce Point and the Team begins to face organized opposition, they are presented with an incredible opportunity by the arrival of Special Forces Ted and his game-changing proposal. Grant finds himself at a crossroads as he must decide whether he and the Team will formally join the Patriots and train to become guerilla fighters against the growing forces of the Loyalists or standby and watch events unfold. Grant knows one decision could risk his marriage and family, while another would mean letting others decide their fate.

As a tech person in the military I’ve read nothing but IT and text-type books for the past couple decades. I tried reading a couple novels, but found them boring and dumped them after a couple chapters. One day at church a member was talking about 299 Days and recommended it so I decided to check it out. 299 Days was definitely different from other books - it drew me in very early on and led me to read the entire series. What a great story with a highly plausible scenario. Glen Tate writes on an everyday level, making it easy to follow along. Although it is not a “religious” series, Glen does a pretty masterful job of weaving Christian themes into the story which I appreciate. I also appreciate how he obviously researched the military so that he uses correct terminology and makes the characters “real”. His brings Civil Affairs into the picture, which as any military person knows is a very critical part of any military engagement.
When I heard the series was coming out on audio book I thought “cool” and decided to give it a try also. I decided to start out with Book 5 as that is the transition from just building the community to military involvement (taking down the drug house, and the Special Forces “visitors”). WOW! The narrator (Kevin Price) really brings the characters to life. Glen did a great job in picking this guy. After hearing this one, I’m going to go back and listen to it all again as the voices n my head when reading aren’t anywhere near as good as Kevin’s reading.
With Christmas coming up, I’m picking up a couple copies of the series on audio book to give out as gifts.
Don't know any comparable books.
Kevin does a much better job of bringing the story to life. His voice fits the story line well.
Getting ready for the war.

Awfully expensive for a few chapters of a book.
