Review: Daughter of Babylon, Book 3: America by Jamie Lee Grey

About the Book
AMERICA is facing its ultimate test. Can it stand, or will it fall?

Reeling from devastating attacks on California and New York, the United States teeters on the brink of collapse. In Oregon, Katie and Zach Nelson are hoping to catch their breath and plot their next move. But a sinister threat drives them from their hiding place.

Meanwhile, Vice President Alana Mills awakens to unexpected and devastating news. Can she help steer the country through this shocking turn of events?

Or is it too late to save the nation?

AMERICA is the third book in the apocalyptic thriller Daughter of Babylon series.

My Thoughts

What an exciting and tense read! This third installment never let up on the intensity. With a rapid-fire pace and nonstop action, I couldn't read it fast enough. There was never a dull moment.

There's three different POVs: new president Alana Mills, falsely accused fugitives Zach and Katie Nelson, and Zach's brother Evan and their parents who have just fled to Canada. I really enjoyed each perspective because they all gave a unique look into different aspects of the crisis.

Highly realistic, it's not hard to imagine things devolving into this kind of chaos in real life. Especially now. This is not a standalone, so definitely start with book one. I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys apocalyptic fiction.
