Johnstone's: Day of Judgment

Title:  Phoenix Rising: Day of Judgment
Author:  William W. Johnstone with J. A. Johnstone
Pages:  352
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Pinnacle
                When I began reading the fictional series Phoenix Rising (2011), I knew I had come upon a very patriotic series.  Then, Firebase Freedom (2012) was released.  I couldn’t wait to read the third installment by the author.  Every time in reading these stories the patriotic theme was so stirring I couldn’t wait to share them with others or at least tell them to grab themselves a copy.  When people chose to open their eyes, we can see how our nation is in such disarray and people are discouraged.  Phoenix Rising, Firebase Freedom and Day of Judgment will get your heart racing, blood pumping and encourage hearts everywhere that Americans love their country!
                The novel series begins with the election of a man who became a naturalized citizen promising change, and once in office begins to totally eradicate the very foundation of the nation.  As time passes by, surviving day-to-day becomes harder so a small band of people come together to pool their resources.  Once that starts, the action begins to build as citizens are executed, laws are abandoned, Jews and Christians are summarily disposed of and allegiance is no longer to America.  All life as Americans had once known it becomes nonexistent even down to the money issued or accepted.
                Veterans begin to assemble along with citizens and those who were in the former armed services begin to combine their knowledge, resources, and skills to remove the man in the White House who has declared himself forever President.  But as former members of other operations begin to share information, the truth of what has been behind the advancement of the regime is revealed.  Not only are there Americans wanting to take their nation back, other allied nations begin to contact the growing band of people to help take down the growing evil.
                I started the novel this morning and by this evening I had read the whole book!  There is suspense, action, mystery, all wound together with a patriotic ribbon that binds Americans hearts today.  Characters in the novel come from all walks of life and learn to begin to use their God-given talents to remove those who are against freedom.  The scenes that take place all over America and various nations will take your breath away just waiting to read to the end to see how the conflict is resolved.
                As I looked at a calendar a few weeks back and realized the Fourth of July was right around the corner, I thought what better way to ignite the flame of patriotism in hearts than to have the review of all three novels uploaded.  I know there are other authors who write similar stories, but for me the Johnstone writers have hit a home run with this series.  Read the novels, share the passion for them and more so the hope that we as Americans will and do stand united behind the Constitution of the United States of America.
                I want to personally acknowledge my heartfelt thanks to the Johnstones for writing wonderful novels, and to all those serving in the armed forces.  Thanks also the veterans who have made the celebration of the 4th of July possible every year!
                My rating is 5 stars.
