Summary

Months after the EMP crippled the country, Charlie concentrated on survival. Unfortunately, that wasn’t working out too well. Russian and Chinese soldiers were now part of the occupation, while the loss of several of her friends to state-sanctioned gangs had pushed her to the edge. It was time to fight back.

Combating a tyrannical government seemed beyond sane, but every journey starts with just one step. For Charlie and her group, that time had come. Retribution was to be meted out and with the help of a growing Resistance, reclaiming the country seemed more plausible by the day.

Retribution is about many things. It is about revenge, and it is about loyalty. But mostly, it is about hope. Because if just a few good people are willing to put it all on the line, then anything is possible. The future is what you make it, and Charlie was going to shape it, one bullet at a time.

I like Duke Fontaine. the story was okay. not a lot going on. kinda crushed to find out that this is a different universe than the Going Home series.

amazing series

I love this series. only thing that would make it better is if it tied into the going home series.

I love everything that A American does

I love it. sure a bunch of guys with small arms has very little chance of doing much against an army. still this is a great listen. I just wish that the authors had cranked out a half a dozen more books. keep on writing guys I look forward to more.

Legit

The story is amazing as always. A. American is my favorite author and Duke Fontaine is the best narrator I’ve listened to on Audible. Nothing disappoints.

Too much of the same

I have listened to the Going Home Series all a few times and Duke makes the story easy to listen to but these books all have a common theme, that takes away from the story a bit, food. Meals are often a plot by themselves. No "hero" goes hungry and they always find food, in these books rarely does a "hero" go days with out food.

Another minor detail that just bugs me as lazy writing is there doesn't seem to be much research done on the military. A captain is a company commander in the Army, not a platoon leader as stated.

Not sure if this is connected to the Going Home books or not but too many things are the same not to be. I guess kind of like Walking and Fear are connected.

Anyways if I was trying to read the last few books I would have given up, Duke makes these books decent to listen to but the minor errors especially in print would have driven me away.

It is pronounced Cob as in corn

Phrases and military knowledge, specifically directed towards the US Navy are incorrect. First, Harpoon missiles are surface to surface, no surface to air. Though they can be launched from an aircraft but the target is always surface. In the Navy, they are ship killers...thus the name. The Chef of the Boat is call Cob as in corn, not C O B as spoken in the audio book. Come on Chris, you'd think after all your boo-boos in Going Home we would have learned. Good story but for 30 bucks, you could have fixed those things.

No such thing as Elgin military base

The story once again is a wonderful tale. I'm just not sure whether the author misspelled the name of the base in this story or the narrator botched it up. What I AM sure of is that there is NO such animal as an Elgin military base in Florida. I'm from Daytona beach, was in the Air Force and the ONLY base in Florida to come remotely close to that name is EG-lin AFB in the panhandle. The next c!osest base located to it is Pensacola NAS. I cringed when Duke mispronounced the name of the base, the name of the St. Augustine grass and such. Word to the wise, get versed in the names of the things in the story prior to speaking into the mic. I did enjoy how much of the storyline gelled with the events of the "Going Home" series with Morgan, Sarge and such. Similar type stories from a different kaleidoscope glass...

Impatient... yes i am..

I consider myself an admirer A .American, I’ve read most his books and stories so far. I also appreciate Duke Fontaine’s voice for these stories…

It is an overall good series to follow but in general, I find the books thin. I would have liked these books to last generally longer. Maybe more details on the main protagonists… I know its early in the story, book 3, but at this rate more people are dying by ink than starvation ;)

Can’t wait for book 4 and 5 lets hope we don’t have to wait 12-18 months…
