A stunning and stirring close to this provocative American Civil War trilogy.

Now, in this third book, the Second Civil War has come to an end in Idaho. The Feds have taken the fight to other fronts, and Danny and his friends are free of U.S. dominance. But that freedom comes with considerable costs, from Danny's disturbing flashbacks to the war, to the Brotherhood of the White Eagle, whose "security" for Freedom Lake looks more like outright thuggery. After Danny makes a shocking discovery about the Brotherhood's final aims, he and his friends lead a group of townspeople on a dangerous journey across a ravaged Idaho, hoping to build a better society of their own, and fulfill the dreams they had in what once was the United States.

Trent Reedy is the author of Divided We Fall and Burning Nation, the first two books in a trilogy about the second American Civil War; If You're Reading This; Stealing Air; and Words in the Dust, which was the winner of the Christopher Medal and an Al Roker's Book Club pick on the Today Show. Trent and his family live near Spokane, Was...

Read from the Book

The image cut to static and then to a blue screen. A second later, a dozen or so other feeds on the wall screen did the same. "Paul, what's going on?" Buzz said to his producer. "I thought Montaine's people said they had this fixed.""I don't get it." Paul checked some readouts on a different screen. "We should be up. This is showing all our equipment is...."At nearly the same time, all the blue screens switched to black with the words EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM in bold white letters near the top. Three short screeches sounded, followed by a long, high-pitched tone. Seconds later our comms began to buzz the same way."No," JoBell whispered. "What now?""This is an automated emergency recording from the United States federal government." The male voice from the screen sounded completely fake, like it was coming from an antique computer. "A debilitating thermonuclear detonation has been detected in Washington D.C. If you are receiving this message, take shelter immediately and conserve all food, fuel, and water. Repeating. This is an automated emergency recording from the United States federal government..."Thermonuclear detonation. The missing warheads. President Griffith had been trying to find them, but it was too late. This couldn't be happening.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Divided We Fall Trilogy: "Divided We Fall delivers cover-to-cover action, intrigue and suspense, all with a gut-punch of an ending that'll leave you begging for the next installment." -- Brad Thor, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Patriot "Powerful and timely! Trent Reedy's chilling tale hits hard as an ambush. Prepare to lose sleep reading what could be your very near future." -- W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV, New York Times bestselling authors of The Last Witness and Hazardous Duty "Tense, heart-wrenching, and all too believable -- I can't wait to read more!" -- Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author of Battle Magic "[A writer who absolutely must be read. Trent Reedy balances disturbing subject matter with heartfelt insight, and he does it all with great style. Listen closely, because this is an important new voice in YA fiction." -- Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Extinction Machine, Rot & Ruin, and Fire & Ash * "Reedy tackles pressing issues with prescient clarity and delicate sophistication. His setup is terrifying in its plausibility and made all the more so by Daniel's conflicted everyman nature, with both sides portrayed as sympathetic yet flawed... This cautionary tale screams immediacy and urgency, a page-turner that rapidly moves toward a catastrophic cliffhanger." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "An all-too-possible pre-dystopia... Strong characters, a fast-paced narrative, and complex questions about what it means to be an American make Reedy's speculative novel a must-read." -- School Library Journal "An action-packed thriller that may well lead readers to further explore the complicated constitutional and political issues it raises." -- Kirkus Reviews
