tyranny is the use of power to subjugate

“Tyranny isn’t a political party and a tyrant isn’t a bureaucrat. Rather, tyranny is the use of power to subjugate and a tyrant is the man with a heart evil enough to do it.” The United States is in a world of hurt. The U.S. has been invaded by the U.N., the President is in cahoots with the U.N., and the Patriots within the Armed Forces are trying to separate the good from the bad. This book highlights the concept and realism of Oath Keepers [a far-right, anti-government American organization associated with the patriot movement and militia movement. It encourages members—some of whom are current and former U.S. military and law enforcement officers—not to obey orders which they believe would violate the United States Constitution. i.e. Wikipedia] The President has been on a mission to take Americans guns, ammunition, transportation, fuel and rights under the guise of martial law. The U.N. leaders, evidently Middle Eastern, are tired of the slow moving American President and begin to accelerate the takeover via brutality. Great beginning to a very interesting series. There is a prequel available, but I’m already beyond that. I’ll wait for Audible to get the second and third books of the series.

A difficult listen...

I've tried to listen this book over the last month, unfortunately I still can't get through it even though I typically love this genre.

The introduction of too many characters from the beginning, with very little background on each character makes it difficult to relate. The same is true with the locations. This book needs less military jargon and more details and depth.

The narrator's monotone, robot-like voice is nearly torturous. I'm surprised I got through the 3 + hours of it before giving up.

*This audiobook was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an obviously unbiased review.
