From the Author
Before writing Voice in the Wilderness, I developed a detailed plan of what it would take to seize control of the USA. I read books by radicals as well as historical and theoretical books on tyranny. As I wrote my story, several incidents appeared in the headlines only weeks or days after I wrote about them. I didn't want to abandon my plot and, realizing mine was a character-driven story, I continued to write it, though the Associated Press seemed to be stealing part of my thunder.
My conclusion from my research and writing experience -- it's not as hard as one might think to take over this nation, if one has no moral restraint and can lull the citizens into political apathy until--you'll have to read the series to fill in the rest.
To the ladies -- never fear reading a thriller by H. L. Wegley. You will not be grossed out or horrified by graphic violence, sex, or profanity. As an author and person of faith, I write stories like Voice in the Wilderness because I believe every reader who enjoys stories dealing with high stakes and the grittier issues of life, ought to have the option of reading their favorite genre without being, as Oscar Wilde once put it, taken to the latrine and locked in. Fiction, after all, is not reality. A complete replica of reality would be boring. Characters' actions and words need include only what the author chooses to move the story forward.
Hope you love the characters and enjoy the story in Voice in the Wilderness. The sequel, Voice of Freedom, should be released in late May and book 3, Chasing Freedom, in late July 2016.

I found all three books in a Kindle set on Amazon for a discounted price so you might want to look for that.
While the back story of a President planning a coup has great possibility, there are many components that are never followed through on. To me, the storyline between K.C. and Brock reads a little juvenile. After reuniting, almost immediately both realize that their childhood friendship has become a love story, but much time is spent with them discussing mundane things such as the use (or lack of ) foul language.
Overall, I enjoyed the book, however I was a little disappointed that the plot to take over the country was left up in the air so to speak.
This is a powerful story—a powerful reveille for all Americans. Most of us are aware of our country’s past efforts to preserve our personal liberties. In this gritty novel, H. L Wegley shows us that today is no different. Falseness and subterfuge can still attack our freedom, our very right to exist.
The author takes us through a death-defying maze of perils that could become our own country’s future. When this evil is couched in subtleties and backed by political and military power, it becomes the ultimate power—the ultimate danger. The deep analytical nature of this book, coupled with its blazing action, shows us ever so clearly what a handful of brave people can accomplish.
Voice in the Wilderness is an exciting wakeup call as well as a fast, thrilling read. It was such a satisfying read I have already started on book 2 of the author’s Against All Enemies series
** SPOILER ALERT**
This storyline is classic. Trouble arises. Smart girl who just happens to be attractive is rescued often by an attractive man. Its the writing in between those lines that caught and held my attention. Some parts of the story were extremely cheesy, in a good way. Beyond belief, I highly respected the absence of curse words and raunchy imagery. Sometimes I need a break from stuff like that and/or really think it should be toned down. As this is christian fiction, I wasn't surprised. So anyone who wants to read a good clean thriller story, this is for you. The dynamics between Kace and Brock is kind of predictable. The banter between them is entertaining and not overbearing. I did find a few phrases annoying though. I have family that served in the military while I was growing up and family that has served more recently. However, just because they don't say certain things doesn't mean that all military men and women talk that way...
I liked the part were military from another part of the world was brought into the plot. That opened up a plethora of possibilities for the next book. In my opinion the main characters were well developed. I would have liked more depth to a few of the minor characters though. Especially some of the villains. Especially the mysterious and creepy woman who keeps tabs on the president. Generally more depth in supporting characters adds to the depth of the story. This is the kind of book I would read again. Books have to be pretty good to make it to that list.
