I just saw that the author of the book-Enemies foreign & domestic, came out with the sequel "Domestic Enemies"- is this new book any good? Is it as good as his first book?

Haven't read either yet, but a friend of mine who was a HUGE fan of the first one says that #2 is off-the-charts goodness. I'll be ordering my copies in the next few weeks.

Yep. Both books are great. I can't wait for the third one.

I really liked the first one, but I thought the second book was lacking. It was a good book, I did enjoy it, but it was short on action. I also thought it could have been about 100 pages shorter, there was a lot of "filler" that had nothing to do with the plot.

I thought the second was better than the first. Can't wait for the third.

I put this in another post, but here it goes:

I just finished EFAD, and started DE. Unintended consequences is the only other book like this that I've really read. I wanted to compare the two and see what arfcom thinks.

I thought EFAD was pretty good. I found the plot believable enough to keep it entertaining without being too realistic. I kind of thought the love story angle was kind of forced. I think Matt writes well, and he didn't bog way down in gun trivia the way UC does. (Personally I kind of liked that about UC). I think EFAD could have used a little more plot development, and a little more of a surprise to keep people on their toes.

Although I found EFAD's governmental reaction a little more believable in general (sort of 'just keep doing what we're doing') and a bit more realistic than the one in UC, the character development in UC made their response a lot more interesting. You have to develop the good guys, AND the bad guys. I think there was a little too much focus on one or two bad guys, and making them out to be villanous in nature. (Lots of 'bad guys' blackslapping each other about sticking it to the 'gun nuts').

I just started DE and so far it isn't going well. Without providing a realistic transition path between EFAD and DE, the radical change at the beginning is just a little too incredulous to swallow. I'm only about one or two chapters in, but I'm not sure I'm that interested in persuing a novel that attempts to be realistic, but starts with what I saw as a very unrealistic beginning.

Your thoughts?
