Print by Primal Light Press Author Blood Republic is a political thriller for an anti-political time. Corrupt politicians, crazed generals, DMT, and viral hate; Blood Republic examines modern extremism through a heart-thumping thriller with the fate of the country at stake. "LIKE HOUSE OF CARDS COLLIDING WITH TOM CLANCY TO CAUSE AN AMERICAN ARMAGEDDON." During the closing hours of the tightest presidential election in US history, firebrand Annie Daniels is a Democratic-socialist senator determined to win the White House. She dreams of eradicating injustice, and hopefully, saving her dying daughter's life. Major Amos Daniels, her conservative Green Beret brother, might have something to say about that though, if her plans go against his faith. As an Electoral College tie nears the country erupts into rioting, and Annie and Amos are thrust to opposite ends of a constitutional crisis, guns drawn. Will the Daniels family find common ground above ideology to prevent a second civil war? Or, will a true enemy-of-the-state escape justice while the nation crumbles into chaos? Blood Republic will keep you on the edge of your seat guessing as to who the true villain is in a divided modern America, and if anything is ever as it seems. "IF YOU'RE A CONSERVATIVE, YOU'LL PROBABLY HATE THIS BOOK. IF YOU'RE A LIBERAL, YOU'LL PROBABLY HATE THIS BOOK. IF YOU THINK FOR YOURSELF, AND BELIEVE THE WHOLE COUNTRY MIGHT BE GOING NUTS, YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS BOOK."
