"What you have here, my fellow Patriot, is a book written by the average American for the average American. This book is a call to return to our American roots; to remember our heritage and birthright. Most importantly, it is a reminder that our oaths are binding, and we have a responsibility to ourselves and our posterity to honor them. Douglas Hogan writes in a style that is both direct and candid. No words are minced; there is no “beating around the bush” or “tip-toeing through tulips”. Douglas says what he means, and his incredible passion is ample evidence that he means what he says".
-GySgt Jason Tibett USMC (Ret)
Every American needs to read this book. The author pulls no punches, telling just how far our government has moved away from the constitution and how our right are slowly being taken away. Reminds everyone what taking an oath to defend the constitution really means.
A necessity for your personal library and this author's FBI profile, I'm certain! Hogan holds no punches as he addresses the major issues that face our great nation today.

Until the government is out of the hands of politicians and back into the hands of the people, we are doomed. The 2nd Amendment is the ONLY protection that the People have to insure that WE remain Free. Without God, Guns and Guts we are screwed. Hogan's book is real!!! You just don't know that it is happening right in front of you now!
All the pieces are already in place. EOs have been written and enacted, Agenda 21 is in effect, and civil unrest initiated by the previous Administration. All that remains is the strike of one small spark...and the powder keg goes boom.
This series, “The Tyrant” is the honest voice of the obvious that is clouded by our normalcy bias...the frog in the pot.
Well done Mr. Hogan, well done indeed!

The question in the Tyrant series was 'What happened to Tori'. We have our answers. She is one tough woman. Loved the book and the series
I enjoy light reading on post-apoc ideas and this fit the bill wonderfully. No great, long detail explanations or scenario build ups, just plain, well written fiction that kept flowing nicely until the end. Also, the editing was top-notch which made the book is even more entertaining.
The way the story flows, I was in the National Guard at one time and this type of story was talked about in my Plt .
Stories of Perseverance....Acts of Defiance? Excellent story. A difficult situation to be in to choose between your country-your family-your belief in the Constitution-your morals. Easy to sit on the sidelines and say ...... but to die for your beliefs? Could I do it? Could you?.
Wow. First off, learning all the executive orders that have been put in place over the last 60 years, where the government can basically confiscate anything in an emergency is beyond terrifying. In this situation, the US was brought down by enemies both foreign and domestic. This book kept me glued to my iPad until I finished. It made me think about how the power of one in a high position can really corrupt and cause devastation for all. Great start to the series.
Loved this book and the series, it lets you really get to know all the different characters and go along for the ride with them in their ups and downs thru this post apocalyptic world. Ive laughed, cried and waiting with heartbeat in overdrive for the next page/outcome of battle to occur, Also Love the patriotic references, is a good example of how we all need to work together so we dont find ourselves in that kind of position
Closest I've read about what could and is happening in our country. Had an uncle that use to talk about this many years ago. Everyone thought he made it up. Spent 44 years between the Army Air Corp And the Air Force. I am glad someone is trying to enlighten us even if it is by using fiction. The storyline is based on fact which makes it even better and the characters are great. I finished this in one day and getting ready to start the next one in this series.
I bought my copy at a book signing event. I've read both books now and I'd have to disagree with a couple of the previous reviews. Toris Journey is less than 30 pages and was promoted as a short story, Main Core is 300 pages, definitely not the same book.
The story picks up three months after The Rise and introduces new friends, new villains, enemy technology, and side story plots.
I give it five stars because it's easy reading and believable.
Blake and Tori are struggling to survive while working as secondhand bounty hunters for a shady black-ops government program called the Fugitive Recovery and Tactical, or FRAT, when they discover they have stumbled into a world of espionage and shadow governments. They must recruit help from unlikely places to assist them in unraveling the truth before they can be freed from the snares they have stumbled into. Along the way they will have to face the harsh realities of the post-Tyrant landscape and work together to solve the riddle that’s plaguing their minds:
“Who’s really in charge?”
Blood Corps is an excellent read. Very hard to put down once you begin. The twist and conspiracy plots are just plain genius.
L. Douglas Hogan good job
No Light Beyond
Mason Loss was a single father separated from his seven-year-old daughter, Lydia Nicole, when the United States was suddenly devastated by several massive coordinated EMP attacks.
Having sustained life-threatening injuries in his search for her, he awakens from a two-year coma to find that the world is not the way he left it. To make the situation worse, Yellowstone has erupted and expelled an ancient microscopic organism that threatens the course of human survival.
Now Mason must traverse the ashy suburban landscape in search of his now nine-year-old daughter. Along the way, he discovers a far more terrifying enemy than humankind can safely manage.
God, guns, guts what's not to like! Throw in love of family, the torture of choosing between justice and mercy, and a prophet with a sharp with and you have a heck of a read.
