She always seemed to fall short of his expectations, was treated badly by him and, as a result, she didn't trust him. This lack of trust in authority figures, resulting from a bad or non-existent relationship with a father, often transfers over to a lack of trust in the Ultimate Father, God. I wove this into KC's backstory, though I didn't point it out, explicitly, in the book.

Voice in the Wilderness

I'm normally not a fan of political thrillers, but a good story and a good author can definitely change your mind about a genre and make you a fan. H.L. Wegley, changed my mind about this genre and at times I wondered if he was in my head listen to the conversations that I have had with my family. It was as if he took my conversations and made them into a novel. His character, Brock was a man after my own heart. The way he expressed himself in his blog was powerful. And th

The first book in the Against All Enemies series is a winner. My own thinking resonates with the underlying premise of the book: too many people are looking to the U.S. government to rescue them and making very little effort to examine what is going on all around. The popular view among many is that the government will feed them, clothe them, keep them well, protect them, and make them happy. The scary part is most, if not all, nations in the past that have gone this route are no longer in exist ...more

Title: Voice in the Wilderness (Against All Enemies #1)
Author: H. L. Wegley
Pages: 394
Year: 2015
Publisher: H. L. Wegley
My rating is 5+ stars.
Reminiscent of events both here in America and abroad, Voice in the Wilderness seeks to awaken our nation through the medium of fiction. Like John the Baptist who was a voice crying out in the wilderness or Queen Esther who was reminded by her uncle about being born for such a time as this, both are examples that challenge us to look beyond ourselves.

The first entry in his newest series, Against All Enemies, Voice in the Wilderness, caught my attention immediately and held me in thrall throughout the entire book.

"Voice in the Wilderness "(Against All Enemies Book 1 )by H. L.Wegley is a novel about how a corrupted president is talking over the country. This story is fiction now but it very well might be truth in the near future if we don't wise up and elect the right people into office.

This is one book that this reader couldn't put down once I started reading it. I was hooked from the first line "UR being set up. Watch your back, PL. More later. B" From that first line the action is intense.

H.L. Wegley is an accomplished author. Voice in the Wilderness, the first in what will undoubtedly be a series, is a character driven romantic thriller.
a. The romance; Mr. Wegley introduces two central characters who have been in love since they were children. Because of circumstances beyond their control, as teenagers they became separated to opposite sides of the continent. They haven’t seen each other for nearly a decade.
b. The thriller; The United States has become the play toy of a wealthy

Voice in the Wilderness is a very exciting story. With a fast take off, there is heart-pounding action to grab the reader from the very beginning. I love this type of book, where the power of one collides with the seeming weakness of ordinary individuals and their ideals. In this case, we have a rogue USA president vs. a popular blogger and a network specialist.

The main characters are well-developed, and as readers, we come to know them very well. KC is a fearless and tenacious female lead and

The author took present day events and exaggerated them into fearful possibilities where America nears becoming the dystopian U.S.A. As usual, Wegley delivers on excitement. For awhile there, when the two main characters face one crisis after another, I almost lost my breath, thinking there was no way out. The characters are well-developed, seeming to be larger than life, yet they both struggle with self esteem. Their natural talents & knowledge of the setting gets them out of trouble with r ...more

This is the first book I have read by Harry Wegley but for sure it will not be the last. He is a new Author to me and I love this book. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Fraught with tension from the very first page it does not let up through the entire book, I am reading it and thinking that it is a page out of today's newspaper. It is terrifying and very real.

Voice in the Wilderness, by H. L. Wegley is book one of Against All Enemies. This is the first book I have read by this author. It won’t be the last! I enjoyed the fast-paced, non-stop action that went on throughout the entire book. It started off with a bang and didn’t stop.
Main character, KC, has discovered some top-secret information and she doesn’t know where to go with it. The one man she tries to get help from, eh, it doesn’t end well for him. Espionage, terror, potential war, martial law

This is a powerful story—a powerful reveille for all Americans. Most of us are aware of our country’s past efforts to preserve our personal liberties. In this gritty novel, H. L Wegley shows us that today is no different. Falseness and subterfuge can still attack our freedom, our very right to exist.

The author takes us through a death-defying maze of perils that could become our own country’s future. When this evil is couched in subtleties and backed by political and military power, it becomes t

Fascinating & Thought Provoking

Given the current climate & condition of the USA, this author paints a very possible scenario of how our Nation could change & has changed drastically by those that hold the office of President of the United States. This book is enthralling & holds you to the very end. I appreciate so much that this Christian author did not use any curse words or inappropriate word pictures. I am about to start book two of this series & can't wait.

Irreversibly clean

Thank you for the base vs of profanity and body details. I can't help wondering if the fiction is not too close to reality. However, God is still in control. My one criticism is that there was a bit much insecurity and romance in such perilous times plus OF was like so many heroines -unable to follow directions in life-threatening situations A very well written novel

I wish everyone would read this book!! It is fiction but it holds so many truths....our nation is going down so fast and we have let it happen. This author has given the reader so much to consider. Our children are not getting the education they need to understand how this great nation came to be.....we need a Voice, a Watchman.....

I chose this book to try based on the write up. I could not put it down so I read late into the night. The story portrays some possible scenarios in our country. Hopefully the government of the people, by the people and for the people will continue in spite of its many issues.

Saving a Nation!

I was totally captivated by this story. The author has such a unique way of getting the reader sucked in so that it is nearly impossible to stay away from the story. Mr. Wegley writes a story about events that certainly could take place if our leaders continue to remove our religious or Christian freedoms.
Great book!

First, I loved that the sex, language and violence were totally acceptable, or most importantly the LACK thereof. Thank you for a thrilling story about what true love and commitment are supposed to be. Not only for another person, but for our great country and above all else, our Savior God.

A book that needs to be read.

A well thought out story that should be read to help waken up Americans to the
possibility of what could happen if the progressives of our day could have their way and try to control our nation.
The only thing about the book that I did not like was the way it abruptly ended .

Voice in the Wilderness has all the entertaining aspects of a political thriller - a strong voice of opposition toward a corrupt politician, broadcast over the internet; a highly skilled woman on the inside, who discovers things she is not meant to know; and chase scenes that had me reading past my bedtime. Enjoying and thought-provoking considering the political climate in the U.S. today.
