Book Info: 

What if your blog could save the nation, but posting to it might cost your life?
As catastrophes drive the US into martial law, all eyes are on America, waiting to see what emerges. KC Banning, network specialist, discovers President Hannan's tyrannical plans and is branded a terrorist, sending her fleeing the Beltway to find her childhood soulmate and protector, Brock Daniels.

Author Inview:"

My Review: "Voice in the Wilderness "(Against All Enemies Book 1 )by  H. L.Wegley is a novel about  how a corrupted president is talking over the country. This story is fiction now but it very well might be truth in the near future if we don't wise up and elect the right people into office.

This is one book that this reader couldn't put down once I started reading it. I was hooked from the first line "UR being  set up. Watch your back, PL. More later. B" From that first line the action is intense.

This is a political thriller with a romance in the middle. Yes, there is violence in this story but it is not overdone and not too graphic. And the romance is clean.

This story shows that there are still people who honor there vows! It also shows that childhood friends can remain friends even after many years of no contact.

I like the fact that the heroes uses a blog to "save the day" because it shows that everyone can do something to make things right.

The ending made this reader want to read the next book like right now but it isn't published yet,(but isn't that the woo of all readers?)

Can KC Banning and Brock Daniels undo the damage done and save the country and themselves?

Now here is some interesting facts about the book that I got from the author H.L. Wgley, 
I know a bit about meeting that someone special when you're still a kid. I've known my wife since we were 3 or 4. She's a lot like KC, freckles, reddish hair, slender Irish girl. Next year we celebrate our 50th. So, you can see where I got the backstory about Brock and KC. What a blast it was to write the childhood part!
B Here are a couple of things about my wife that she has in common with KC -- temper hovering near the boiling point, heart on sleeve, will die for what she believes. All I had to do was give KC some computer skills (my wife is computer-phobic), and I had my heroine.

I think it is really neat that a author can use real facts in a story!

Another fact in this story that is brought out is that God loves us and We are good enough, here is a quote from the book, that I posted on my Facebook wall "You got more than that. You're going to have a scar, Kace. Not gonna be perfect anymore." "I never was. See the freckles." She gave him a weak smile, then pulled his hand away from her head and held it."Brock, we all have scars from life. Some on our bodies,some deeper inside, in our hearts. Scars from things like someone telling us we're not good enough." ......" We've got to live our lives and find happiness in spite of them".

I read the 383 pages in one day, like I said it was turn the page action!

I received a copy of "Voice In the Wilderness " from the author for a honest review, which I have given. I was not required to give an favorable one just an honest one!

I am giving "Voice In The Wilderness" five stars.
