The Repressed Rebel


The Mechanics

Sarge is in charge. Henry Sargent has been named the new head of the Boston Brahmin by J.P. Morgan who recently suffered a stroke. The president has brought in UN peace keeping forces due to the uprisings against the Citizen Corps. New conflicts arise both nationally and personally.

Akart’s fifth novel in The Boston Brahmin series, The Mechanics: A Post-Apocalyptic Fiction Series, is every bit as action packed as the first four. And, what a heart-stopping ending! Oh, my! This may very well be the best book of the group.

This book, as well as the others, is a must read for anyone who wants a glimpse of what could very well be our immediate future. While Akart is not a prognosticator, his novels are eerily realistic in today’s political climate.

5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.

Police State


The Bailout Cover

Britain has gone through their second round of bank failures only to put their faith in a Far-East Consortium to bail them out. As the Consortium enacts laws that restricts freedoms and places Britain into a Police State riots and protests breakout. Rob, a reporter at a local newspaper, speaks out against the Consortium by publishing his own one page paper. This lands him and others like him in custody.

Wade’s post-credit crunch dystopian novel set in 2012, The Bailout, takes a look at the various reasons people are imprisoned and Rob’s adventure in and out of freedom. The tone is very depressing and hope is fleeting. Rob constantly believing that the next moment he will be shot is annoying. He and his fellow prisoners repeatedly underestimate the power of the Consortium.

By having each character tell their story as to what brought them to be arrested the reader gets a good idea of who they are and what they are capable of doing. The novel’s pace is steady with a few “gotcha” moments. It is well edited and I only spotted one typo. Overall, it was O.K. 3 out of 5 stars.

The end of the world as we know it coming soon?


Cyber Attack Cover

Our next double shot features bestselling author Bobby Akart.

The best way to describe this book is that it is a terrifying look at what could actually happen to the USA in the very near future on an economic and political level. Cyber attacks escalate all around the globe throwing the USA into what is termed a Cyber War. The sitting president seeks to extend his term beyond the 8 years that are coming to an end through threats of martial law and the suspension of Posse Comitatus. And, The Boston Brahmin is using all of this for their financial gain.

Akart’s book, Cyber Attack, The Boston Brahmin Series Book 2 follows the struggles of The Loyal Nine as they prepare for disaster while following the direction of John Morgan and The Boston Brahmin. This very frightening look at a real world possible outcome for the USA is thought provoking and enlightening.

If this book doesn’t cause you to think, I don’t know what will. I can’t wait to see how it all ends. 5 out of 5 stars.
