Top Customer Reviews
For connoisseurs of the alternate history genre, Rebel Nation delivers from the very beginning. In a fantastic double set up, Ulysses S. Grant meets an untimely demise, leading to the survival of the Confederacy. Almost two hundred years later comes the bombing death of a famed civil rights leader, which triggers rioting and revolution until McKenna and Cullen enter the picture. These two lovers fight and duel, but are, of course, destined to be reconciled.
Rebel Nation has enough decadent wealth, courage, weakness, vengeance, hate, family conspiracies and other juicy human indulgences to hook you and keep you reading. Alternate history is a tough genre to write--it requires a peculiar kind of imagination, but Christopher Stires creates active scenes and concrete details that make his story compelling and believable.
Rebel Nation is an interesting, challenging tale that deftly conceals a deliciously unexpected villian until the grand finale. It's a story you can sink your teeth into. A thumping good read.
Reviewed by Cheryl Swanson, Reviewer with Gotta Read and Author, Death Game
Reminds me of something similar to 'Crossing the Line', but nowhere near as well done.
As other reviewers noted, basically our timeline and the author's are the same.
A few cosmetic differences, like changing brand labels and such.
I had hoped for better, but that is probably why it is on Kindle.
Saved a dead tree from being sacrificed.
