Publisher's Summary

Enemy forces gather under the veil of darkness - mobilizing to strike a fledgling nation.

Will this clandestine Fifth Column achieve its acts of sabotage? 

Remember, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Once again, political suspense collides with postapocalyptic thriller fiction as critically acclaimed author Bobby Akart (The Lone Star series, The Blackout series, The Pandemic series, The Boston Brahmin series, and the Prepping for Tomorrow series) intertwines historical fact with plausible fiction in The Lone Star series. 

The Republic of Texas has focused its efforts on the survival of its citizens to the detriment of those who seek to cross their borders. When an unforeseen enemy penetrates its defenses, the unthinkable happens, causing the nation to face its greatest test. 

Can Texas come together to protect its own? Will the death of one of its own cause turmoil among the ranks? Will the advancing Fifth Column receive assistance from an unlikely source? The Lone Star series continues with Fifth Column.

A great yarn

Well if “They” really are out to get you are not really paranoid.
Evil is real and how some of these characters started out with good intentions then switched sides is interesting.
Really an excellent series both in kindle books and audible presentations. Of course having Sean Runnette as narrator was a good call.

5th Column

All I can say is that Author Bobby Akart is amazing! I think that this is his best series yet. I love the Armstrong ranch and the Armstrong family. Read this series.

Blah, blah, blah

This is a great series but alas I must quit.
I couldn't get that second mortgage thus I cannot afford the $15 credit I am forced to use each month with a new chapter coming out.
Clearly being dished out for maximum $$
Sorry, I'm no sucker.

Great story but books are too short to be worth a credit

I like the story line a lot. But the publisher is getting greedy, breaking the books up into short stories. Not worth a credit each. Ill stop the series now.

These darn endings make you want more

I wish I had the exact words to describe this book, this series so far. By far the BEST series I have listen to and I am not just saying that because I am a Texan American! This is an edge of your seat wanting more story. I can not wait for more. P.S. Dang you Holloway!!!!!!!!

Ignore Every Thing and Listen

The continuing saga of the Armstrong family and the renewal of the Republic of Texas continues without disappointment. You will not want to stop listening as the 1S1K victim as revealed and the family, the new nation and her citizens are thrust into new trial and tribulations. Bobby Akart tells a riveting story and provides what might be called political prophecy. Bobby also solidifies himself as the king of the literary cliffhanger. His endings just make you want to cuss your fool head off! If you are just reading this review for Fifth Column, make sure you get the first four books...they are a must!
