TyrannyTyranny by William W. Johnstone
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

‘Tyranny’ is another Johnstone Clan entry in the US Against the World series. These are fun, in a way, in how a stout group works together towards defending their perception of what is best for America. This story is clearly based upon recent government attempts to take land based upon tax issues and the like. This entry starts off as government versus citizen and then spirals to nearly full-scale war. I find, thus, that the book starts off realistically and finishes into a melodramatic lot of silliness.

The characters, for a Johnstone US Against the World book, are standard: Old fellow, son, various relatives, friendly sheriff, etc. The bad guys are about the same: Power hungry Government Wonks. All involving an Alamo set-up. Back and forth and then battle to end. This end battle is more ridiculous than others. Of the series, Home Invasion is still the best of the lot.

Bottom line: I don’t recommend this book. 4 out of ten points
