American Revolt, Vol.1 of The Pacification of Earth (Volume 1)
Author: Dean Warren
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (2013)
Binding: Paperback, 354 pages
I really enjoyed this book! Author Dean Warren has written a fascinating story set in a very bleak future that is all too possible,if we don't get our act together. He doesn't preach, he simply sets the scene and allows the inevitable to happen. With the majority of the American population slowly being starved to death and physically restrained to their own areas, I could easily see how someone like Benjamin Bjorn could rise through the ranks in the Marines, leave the military and become the leader in the rebellion. The book is filled with action and suspense. I highly recommend it to all fans of SciFi and futurists.
