I really had the creeps when reading the book and when could happen here in the United States, if we had a President like the one in this book. The only reason the book didn't get a 4 or 5 rating is because it took along time to get exciting. It's so scary because you know that something like this could really happen. People disappear in this book with just a snap of a finger and it's in the middle of the freaking night, I mean whole families. Some come back but not as how they left. I thought Jackson was really blinded by the President and he knew something was up but just kept ignoring the signs. Until something happens and he has no choice but taking off his blinders. I am starting to like his wife Courtney more, but I think my favorite character is there older daughter Maya. Very interesting girl but she needs to be a little more secretive. I really wonder what's going to happen to her, Jackson, and the rest of the family. I have the next two books but I am going to take breaks in between each one. The last book I am Involved in a book tour for which isn't due up until the 29 of this month, so I have still have sometime before then. Again so far a very scary book that could very well happen in our future.
