This book actually made me tear-up and even cry a couple of times. I wasn't expecting such a reaction at all. The stories presented and the way they all are written, give a great finish to the story as a whole. Adding dimension and detail to the wider happenings of the changes we see in all previous books. It was great to be able to read it and re-live the moments.

The premise of this book series seemed very interesting. I listened to the audible books as I drove to work, as I have little patience to actually read poorly written books, but this has to be one of the most low brow attempts at writing dystopian fiction. My own beliefs approach Libertarian, but this series does a disservice to any serious discussion of a potential break down in the social order following a financial collapse.

This was a good endcap to the series. It highlighted stories that we didn't get to read about in the regular books. It went out of its way to show things that were happening throughout the collapse and rebellion around the state of Washington. I appreciated the ending where Wes's father shows up to say goodbye to his son who died in the previous book. One statement implies that he was fighting with Patriot forces somewhere else during the series. I'd be interested to know more about that.

This is the final book in the series that is different than all the others.

Recounting the contributions of honorees does give a chance to paint the many types of people needed to succeed.

In doing so it is many short stories defining meritorious contributions, rather than another volume telling the tale.

I'm glad to have read the book, which for me was a little bit read between other readings spread out over weeks.

Don't buy. Felt that this was an unneeded book in the series that was written just to make another buck. The author should have left the last book as the final one and not try to milk the readers for another $9

This is the last book of the series and discuss the 43 Colonels that get a honorary Colonel recognition. Only three of them are really from the main characters so I enjoyed those but the rest??? not really

A little slower than the rest of the books. Great to get the back stories and other perspectives. Some tearful moments. I can't believe its over.

I love this series and the author but I did not care for this book as it recaps the entire series in a long dialog.
