Synopsis: A number of unacquainted adults, from various walks of life, routinely enjoy the benefits of residing in a nation where liberty and justice are among its chief luxuries. Having different statuses of education, income, and ethnicity, all are suddenly forced to cope firsthand with the "domino effect" of America's vitriolic reaction to the assassination of an auspicious female presidential nominee, Gov. Ceinwen Jarvis. In a day and time where the advancement of technology allows one's voting status, banking information, and even medical history to be accessed by microchip scan, they quickly realize that America - as well as their own lives - will never be the same.

My review: I'd like to thank Black Lion Tours for allowing me to host my honest review and be a part of the tour.
This book is amazing. I don't say that lightly. It's amazing. It's scary and heart-wrenching, horrifying, and realistic all at the same time. I wanted to cry for these characters, I wanted to hug them, I wanted to let them know it was going to be alright. I was there with them every single minute.
Wow...the author just yanks you onto a roller coaster of emotions and just doesn't let go. I couldn't wait to get home and read more every single day. The entire time I was reading it, there was a constant litany in my head, "Just a few more pages."
So if you haven't read it, go out and read it. Just do it. Your life is incomplete without this book.

    1. Thank you. :) There aren't many books that I can actually give 5 stars to, because I really consider that to be a book that changes the way you see things in life. There are so few books that can say that, but yours definitely was. It made me realize how fragile our reality of freedom is.

    2. I did notice from your other reviews that 5 stars are hard-earned, which makes it all the more meaningful for me. Your thoughts after completing NGI are exactly what I was aiming for - my whole reason for writing the book. Much appreciated!
