    I liked the ending better than the ending of Enemies: Foreign and Domestic. It is still hard to read a book which COULD BE HAPPENING!

    Detailed and kind of reads like a movie with different characters points of view in the same scene which I liked. Didn't care for the main character being a christian arab female, poor choice. Very complex and entangled story of many different groups, loyalties, and alliances. Being anti-cultural-marxist, communist, and one world government is great but at the same time it is also from a pro-american patriot but (((multicultural))) view, so you cant help but laugh at the fact that that is the ve Detailed and kind of reads like a movie with different characters points of view in the same scene which I liked. Didn't care for the main character being a christian arab female, poor choice. Very complex and entangled story of many different groups, loyalties, and alliances. Being anti-cultural-marxist, communist, and one world government is great but at the same time it is also from a pro-american patriot but (((multicultural))) view, so you cant help but laugh at the fact that that is the very root cause of the fall of the Untited States in the first place. So whatever hopes they have of creating in the way of a new type of system will also be short lived and fall apart eventually for the same reasons. If you look at it from the aspect of just being a shit storm in the age of the Kali Yuga its a good and fun read, very entertaining. "The rusty iron wheel of history, breaking loose and turning once again - lifting some, and crushing others." - Matthew Bracken (Domestic Enemies, Pg.204) EXCERPT: "The man snarled, "You want some free gasoline, you Jew bastard? The price of your soul is a few gallons of gasoline? Well then, here it is! Have all the gas you want, traitor! ... Someone spat out, "You like gasoline, Jew? Here, take your gasoline!" A moment later, a lit cigarette or a match was tossed and there was an audible whoomp sound. Instantly the man on the tree was alight. In seconds he was on fire from his legs to his hair, yet he was fully conscious, his face clearly visible behind the orange corona of flame. He screamed and shrieked, swinging his arms and kicking his legs to no effect, his mouth and eyes impossibly wide open, his face a mask of sheer horror. Instead of burning out as the gasoline was consumed, the fire only intensified, but the new fuel was the flesh of the man himself. Before Ranya's eyes, he became a human torch: bubbling, screaming, and turning brown. It was obvious that the man was still all-too aware of his mortal predicament, and feeling the blazing heat with every nerve ending." - Matthew Bracken (Domestic Enemies, Pg.227)

    I really enjoyed the first book in the series. Unfortunately, this one was SO long winded and slow I couldn't stand it. I did push through it and finish the book, but it could have been 1/4 of the length and you wouldn't have missed out on anything. In the book, someone would ask a question and there would be near an entire page of description before the other character replied. Needed a lot more action. Im hoping the third book goes back to the formula that worked in the first book of the serie I really enjoyed the first book in the series.

    The 2nd book in the "Enemies: Foreign and Domestic" series. This one is a little slower paced than the first book, and it took me quite a while to get through it. I don't feel this detracts from the book too much, but given the intense nature and action of the first book, this one is a little more calmer. This book starts off following a major character from the previous book, 5 years later.

Instead of a constant up and down roller coaster of the previous book, this book is much like the initial lift on a huge roller coaster. There is a very slow and even progression to the final chapters' "Oh [email protected]#" intense moments. I'd say the drag through the book is very worth reading. It fills in a lot of background information in what happened since the end of the last book, and further paints the dystopian collapse of a once great nation. The 3rd book in this set is coming out this year, and I am looking forward to reading the conclusion. Based on the events of this book, the 3rd book will read much like the 1st one, lots of disturbing events mixed up with the lives of the main characters and their personal developments.

    What a prescient book! The race riots and race baiting detailed in this likely scenario are being played out in America today, with communist agitators and "useful idiots" like La Raza, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter.

    Just as great as the first if not better. Can't wait to start the final book in the trilogy!

    Anyone who is troubled by the current political climate should read this. Mr. Bracken knows of which he writes.

Disturbing but possible plot. The author seems to have a pretty good knowledge of covert government tactics. Some descriptions of events are disturbing in detail and jar the senses a bit. Not a quick read simply because of its length, but does cover topics that need to taken more seriously such as the rampant illegal immigration taking place today. This is a possible outcome that could result. Only dropped off a star because of some of the disturbing content, but otherwise feel the author did a good job with an unpleasantly possible scenario. If you have concerns about the decline of our nation due to uncontrolled illegals read this book. 2nd in a trilogy btw. Already read book 1 and will move on to 3 now.

    Generally well written, but I can't recommend it unless you're OK with some very adult content.

    Worth a read This was good, old fashioned patriot fiction. Patriots, traitors and action. Nothing else really to say. It ties in well with the first book.

    Great ending with a lot of twists and turns. Took a little long to set the stage. But definitely left me ready for the next book.

    Kept me interested until the end so I can say an interesting novel. I almost never real novels and I liked the change.

    The trilogy gets better! Since the book begins six years after the first book ended it explains in detail what happened to some of the main characters. It also brings a glimpse into how much worse things have become and how “United” we really are or aren’t. It also getaways more personal. I can’t wait to see how the trilogy ends.

    I loved the first book in this series. It pulled me in right away with the opening action scene, then the conspiracy that followed, and everything after. It was also riddled with punctuation errors but this was a rare occasion where I was so interested in the story that I was willing to overlook the fact that it had never seen a proofreader or an editor. But then this, the sequel. Take those same errors from the first book and throw in a heaping dose of over-wordiness, and it was just too much. T I loved the first book in this series.

It was also riddled with punctuation errors but this was a rare occasion where I was so interested in the story that I was willing to overlook the fact that it had never seen a proofreader or an editor. But then this, the sequel. Take those same errors from the first book and throw in a heaping dose of over-wordiness, and it was just too much. There's a scene where a character goes out to a car to get a laptop. That went on for three pages when it could have been a single sentence, or maybe a paragraph if you wanted to throw in some thoughts along with the task. Another scene involves asking a guy to do an illegal flight in his small plane. This went on for so many pages I didn't even count them. I just kept turning and turning until I was past the point where he agreed to do it and was given money. This book is an excellent example of one of the reasons why an editor can be vital to the health of a story. The author has lost perspective and apparently doesn't see that he's utterly killed the pace. On the plus side, all of the dialogue is very real and believable. It's just not all necessary. Adding to the frustration is that there's an unresolved situation from the first book that I guess I'm not supposed to know about. I'm still waiting for the reappearance of the main character from the first book who was presumably killed. As annoying as the errors were, and the slow pacing, it was eventually the wordiness that killed it for me. In fact, it was a single sentence that caused me to just close my Kindle and go do something else. It was something like, "He reached for his computer mouse and clicked an icon on his computer desktop." Really? I'm glad it was made clear that it wasn't some other moused that he grabbed and used to click on some other icon that wasn't on his desktop. I'm surprised the sentence didn't continue... "and caused a program to start up on his computer." With some heavy editing, this story could be made into a worthy sequel to the really good first book in the series. I hope the author will go over the trilogy again, removing all of the filler and excess pages and pages that don't add to the story and turn it into the lean tiger that it could be rather than the fat lion that it currently is.

    At the end of the last book, we thought all was well. We thought Ronya could come home under amnesty and have her son born on American soil. We were wrong. Five years have passed. Five long hard years in a Federal prison. It's not your usual Federal prison, she's been "Disappeared." Her son is being raised by an FBI agent in New Mexico, the Mexican Invasion is in full swing, and there are rumors that New Mexico will attempt to secede from the Union and form its' own country.

Amidst all this, Ronya must escape her prison and find her son. I enjoyed this book. I'm still disappointed that Bracken killed off Brian's father, but I ended up liking the new character. It is scary that elements of Bracken's story could be ripped from the headlines. He plays out a scary "what could be" scenario. His writing style is a little rough, he reminds of Lee Child in the early Jack Reacher books. A little rough, but definite potential. Bracken could be the next Johnstone. His writing reminds me of the Out of the Ashes series. Particularly early on when the books were more realistic and less zombie hordish.

    You definitely have to have a certain political ideologue to read this book. I liked it overall as a novel, but some of the writing is sub-par. At times characters all sound the same because they are spouting the same sort of ultra-conservative politics. I agree with some of the politics, and obviously the way it's framed in the book makes things sound scary or absurd, though at the same time, some of the things have actually come to pass.

    This was a good read, and despite reading out of sequence the story was standalone enough for this not to matter. Whilst I found the politics of the amended gun laws believable the idea of the Hispanic invasion of Mexican illegals into America was a bit harder to swallow. There was a good plot with Ranya's search for her son as a way to work through the intricacies of the ensuing politics. Again there was a minor problem of believability around the custody battle I didn't feel that it detracted f This was a good read, and despite reading out of sequence the story was standalone enough for this not to matter.

    Three stars may seem to be a "meh" rating, but -- not so much in this case. The downgrade is due to the brilliance of Bracken's world building. It's too well-done (if there can be such a thing). It's depressing. The story itself is gripping and affecting. It's just that the dystopian nature of the setting is -- while entirely believable -- such a drag.

    Scary how this could be a glimpse into the future The first book is only a taste leaving you on edge and dying to know what happens next. The follow-up no less intriguing and again you are left hanging from a cliff. As I write this I am eager to dive into the third book. Matthew has done an amazing job!

    great story! there's a note from the author in the first pages. "the domestic enemies: the reconquista contains a major "plot spoiler" for enemies foreign and domestic, bracken's first story, this one being the second in the enemies trilogy. yet another story chronicling the demise of the u.s.a.

    Enjoyable, memorable, part of a series that you should read This book is engaging and a page turner. Some of it is fiction, some seems more like a premonition. In any case this book and the series are well worth reading.

    Again, as with the first book, it could use some editing. Great story, just tends to drag some. This should really be a fast-paced book. I will read the third one since I got this far, but it's taking me forever to get through these.

    Another page turner It brings you up and lets you down, a rollercoaster of excitement. There are bad guys you love to hate . There are some predictable plot elements but some twist as well.

    2nd book was not as riveting as the first. I had to work my way through it.
