Summary

The invaders are continuing to strengthen their hold over an America still reeling. But in the hills, woods, and countryside small sparks of rebellion are taking hold, fanning the fires of patriotism that will unite the country against a common enemy.  

Finally free from the clutches of Fen Shu, President Madeline Tanner refuses to leave her fellow countrymen to their fate. She is their leader and will stop at nothing to protect her people. 

While the rest of the world stands by and watches, a few nations decide they must stand against Chinese aggression, and despite threats to their own countries, join the battle.  

The Uprising is beginning.

Great follow on (thankfully)

My first multi-author series - I adored book 1 of this series - Devon C Ford did a cracking job - book 2 was a big disappointment as the strong characters were made so weak, the story lacked depth and even a proper storyline.
Thankfully book 3 is back with a bang - and picks up brilliantly from the characters introduced in book 1.
The female characters recover from the weak portrayal in book 2 - Go Madeline! - Cal is still a strong force (I miss Louise though) , and the combination of forces from across the US working together to fight back it terrific - I love Sebastian! He is an excellent character.
I am hoping that book four follows on from this one - Great job Chris Harris and lets see some more books from your stable - I have read/listened to them all, and I need more :)

A rare book that I'm not going to finish.

1. Characters we've invested in over the course of the first two books of this very enjoyable series are mostly abandoned.
2. There is entirely too much exposition telling us of the waging of war. Very little is character-driven and those are mainly new characters who come and go.
3. I love books where ordinary people rise to the challenges of a forever changed and dangerous world. Dystopian fiction novels are most excellent. This is about the military prosecution of a war with a cast of thousands.
4. On that note: We are diverted at least twice into passages about Militias in the United States. This comes out of nowhere. It doesn't improve the story. It diverts time from the characters and themes of the prior books. There are many good books about militias. It's completely out of place here.
5. I love this series. Different authors wrote each book. Books one and two are seamless. The third book feels like the author decided just to write his own book (or maybe the publishers did).
6. The reader is excellent.
