First off, I must say that the writing is fantastic, and the historical examples put forward by the author are very well woven into the storyline. Having said that, I made the mistake of purchasing these books as a set, so I couldn't not read them even after I completely gave up on the storyline. SPOILER ALERT: When John Morgan decides a "reset" is necessary and causes a grid down event that will kill millions of people, he's not a hero. When Sarge discovers the truth, and then goes to great lengths to cover for John Morgan and keep the truth from getting out, he's not a hero. When Sarge knows all of this and manages to convince the rest of America that he is a good guy as opposed to the President of the United States who used this event to seize dictatorial powers, it starts to get really stupid. As in "OK, so your mentor caused this event, and the President seized upon it, and you found out about it, but kept your mentor around even though he has proven himself to a sociopath who knows what is best for everyone so killing millions is a good idea, then you convinced the rest of America that they should elect you president....."
It's really quite ridiculous, and scary at the same time. This author believes that killing millions of Americans would be justified to return us to our basic constitutional principles. The Boston Brahmin as written about would be right up there Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and Hitler. They all thought that killing millions would be a great way to "reset" their countries too.
Understand, this a review of the whole series, not just this one book.
