Danny never wanted to be the one to let all hell break loose in America. He was in the Idaho National Guard trying to serve his country just like his dad did before he died. But when the guard is called down to Boise Idaho to help control a rioting protest, his gun fires. Then another from someone else. Then another. And two other. And more. And by the time the shoots clear 12 people are dead. The President of the US himself is demanding that the guardsmen in Boise be arrested, but the Idaho governor has a different idea, one to protect the guard and inadvertently creating one of the biggest crises in history. Join Danny and his friends in book one of this thrilling series.

Divided we fall was an AMAZING set-up book. It is really setting up the world for the rest of the series, and it does a great job of that. But I think the second installment of the series will have the huge, “united states breaking down.” Like it sort of hinted. But Divided we fall was a great book nonetheless with great characters and great mini-wars. I really liked the news reports and internet comments spread throughout the book. It made it feel more real and you could gauge what the common people who aren’t the main characters are feeling.
I would recommend this book to...
  • Anyone who likes military style books.
  • Anyone who likes dystopian style books. Even though its not a complete Dystopian world yet. Anyone who is 12 years or older.
  • Someone who is looking for a series to invest in.
I received Divided We Fall as an Advanced Reader Copy to read and review from NetGalley. Divided We Fall will be out on January 28th 2014 and is available for pre-order here or here!
Thank you for reading, until next time! :)
