Summary

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?

Please be aware novel contains adult themes, language, and violence.

Could have been really good.

Started off well with a good story line. The end was somewhat confusing and rather disappointing.
Still worth a listen though.

Warring conflicts of human nature and power!

Very insightful book into individuals struggles to find meaning in life and each persons role and contributions. The plot is an exciting and almost too real political drama of power and greed and the destruction that results. You might think the author had some inside knowledge of the current politics!
This reader was also excellent with voicing so many different characters and making them seem believable.

An addictive ride through a country run amok

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would absolutely recommend all versions of this book! The story is so compelling and the narrative voice is ideal.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Republic?

There are many memorable moments, but I was particularly drawn to all the Amos Daniels sections.

Have you listened to any of David S. Dear’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first David S. Dear performance, but I will seek out others.
