Time is running out for the two nations that once made up the former USA. Weakened by their division, both the Islamic republic and the Bible Belt are threatened by the expansionist dreams of the Atzlan Empire to the south, and their own intellectual decay engendered by their fundamentalist beliefs. The only solution is to reunite the two nations and regain its former glory, and there's only one way to do it. And only one man, Rakkim Epps, who can. Time is also running out for the archenemy of the trilogy, the Old One. Over 150 years old, long used to the idea of near immortality, he is dying, and with him the idea of creating one world under his domination. His solution is to reunite the Islamic republic and the Bible Belt, a first step in his march to power. His plan involves his voluptuous and deadly daughter Baby...?nd none other than Rakkim himself.

Professional reviews

"Listeners should consider taking in the first two installments of Ferrigno's trilogy before listening to this final installment. The futuristic trilogy supposes the fracture of the U.S. into two parts--the Bible Belt versus an Islamic entity. The book is jam-packed with characters, many complex and many more who may be more fully defined in the first two books. A lesser narrator than L.J. Ganser might not have brought this work of social analysis and speculation into focus at all. He deftly handles the score of odd and complex characters, each with a project to consider. Ritchie and his sidekick, Leo, are a tough duo to portray, but Ganser dus it remarkably well. The story's conclusion is eminently satisfying. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
