The 13: Fall by Robbie Cheuvront and Erik Reed

About the Book:

Join CIA operative Jonathan Keene in a battle against America’s greatest enemy. Although initially investigating the disappearance of border agents along the US/Mexico border, Keene soon discovers another enemy waiting right at America’s doorstep.

This enemy is swift—with sights set on something more precious than gold. As the US is pushed into a situation it hasn’t seen since its inception, Keene is forced to face a past he’d rather leave buried. Can Keene—and America—survive?

My Thoughts:

Wow.  This book reminded me a lot of Joel C. Rosenberg's fiction, and had me praying these two aren't 'prophetic'!  The story is plausible, the action is intense and the characters are written with depth and dimension.

I was captivated from page one and the story held me hostage until the final page...then left me wanting more.  A sequel is coming, so be warned: all loose ends to not get tied in a neat little bow.

And the story gets messy.  Not graphic messy, but you get the point.  This is war, and war is bloody and costs.  Erik and Robbie paint a vivid picture of what our country's future could be with a few simple changes, and the possibility is so realistic it's a bit frightening.

I loved every hero, from CIA Agent Jon Keene to FBI Agent Mandy Taylor to Boz, hero extraordinaire.  And the 'bad guys' are really bad...and way too real for me at times.  I could almost pick from this current administration who would fill Marianne's shoes...chilling.

This is one book that is a must read.  You'll see our current state of affairs in these pages and see where America could be heading.  It will prompt you to pray like you've never prayed for our country before, and leave you breathless with the possibility of war on our home soil and what it could mean for the nation.

"The 13: Fall" is the opening salvo of a trilogy of books from this dynamic writing duo, and is published by Barbour Publishing.  Highly recommended.

My thanks to NetGalley for an advance copy.

Happy Reading!
