It's a starred review from Publisher's Weekly for Trent Reedy's BURNING NATION! They praise the second installment of the Divided We Fall trilogy for opening "with a bang" and say "Reedy spins an action-packed cautionary tale, allowing both state and federal viewpoints their strengths and weaknesses, stopping just short of condemning both sides while acknowledging the validity of their arguments. It's a complex story rooted in current events, all the more worrisome for its plausibility." Look for this one next month. Congratulations, Trent!
