All Jessica wanted to do to celebrate her 19th birthday was go camping and test out her skills navigating with a GPS. At no point during the celebration did she want to include her passenger plane getting shot down from the sky and crashing in the middle of a war zone. But that's life. Her new home, Graveston, is the site of a Waco-style standoff between the Federal government and what the news is calling an anarchist cult. Jessica is nursed back to life by a kindly priest living in the no-man'

Larken Rose is an intelligent and thoughtful writer that I admire for his philosophical and political views but as is often the case with an author that writes a work of fiction to endorse a cause, he falls into the trap of inorganically "explaining" through his characters rather than "showing" and the final product ends up less than realistic and less than interesting.

Great book, It kept me interested from the start. Closer to the end it felt like the author lost interest in the story line and cared more about ranting his views on politics and the government. While the ending was a let down it was still a good read and I would recommend it.

“Some of us realize the self-evident truth that no election, no constitution, no legislation, and no other pseudo-religious political ritual can bestow upon anyone the right to rule another. Nothing can make a man into a rightful master; nothing can make a man into a rightful slave.” 7 likes
“You are not Christians. You are not Jews. You are not Muslims. And you certainly aren’t atheists. You all have the same god, and its name is ‘government.’ You’re all members of the most evil, insane, destructive cult in history. If there ever was a devil, the state is it. And you worship it with all your heart and soul.” 5 likes
