Descrição do produto

What if ISIS controlled America?

Eisa McCarthy lives in Caliphate City under the control of the radical Islamic group, the Ghuraba. Seven years ago General Mohammad bin-Rasulullah defeated the United States in a ruthless betrayal and set up their worldwide Caliphate in the ruins of Washington, D.C. The Ghuraba's supreme holy leader, the Abu al-Ghuraba, claims Eisa's father gave him control of the U.S. nuclear arsenal, a claim bolstered by the smoldering ashes of many cities and her Syrian-born mother's testimony. But after her mother is accused of apostasy, she learns her father may not be the 'martyr' the Ghuraba claim.

Do the Ghuraba really possess the launch codes for the ICBM missiles? Or did her father 'lock them out' as Colonel Everhart, the rebel commander, wants her to tell the world? If she fights, the Ghuraba will kill her little sister, but if she doesn't, eventually the Ghuraba will hack in and nuke them all. All Eisa has are a string of Muslim prayer beads and a pre-Islamic myth her father told her the night he disappeared.

The fate of the world, and her little sister's life, hang in the balance as Eisa sorts through ancient myth, her Muslim faith, and what really happened the night the Ghuraba seized control.

5.0 de 5 estrelas On point and essential 30 de outubro de 2016
Por Dale - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
‘The Caliphate’ is wound around the premise that an ISIS-like conquest of the United States has been successful. One might think “Yeah, like that would ever happen,” until Erishkigal constructs her disturbingly plausible backdrop for the novel to follow.

Eisa McCarthy is a faithful Muslim, one who refuses to set aside her humanity in the name of doctrine. We see the story through her eyes as she navigates her difficult path. Burdened by memories of a father now besmirched by propagandized history into the image of a traitor, she finds herself propelled by her circumstances into a fold of resistance marking America’s last efforts at redemption.

The parallels the author draws between the current landscape in Syria and Iraq and a future United States are unsettling, as they portray present-day atrocities with unflinching accuracy. The dominion of evil Eisa opposes is factual, departing only in scope from conditions experienced already inside less fortunate borders. Likewise, the courage of female fighters against a misogynistic foe is drawn from our world and extended into the author’s adroit, fictional presentation.

One is left with the conclusion that, yes, this could happen here. If it does, we will have the same choices Eisa, her compatriots, and fellow victims of dominant, Islamist fundamentalism do: resist for the sake of those who can or will not, or hope for the best at the sparse mercy of conscienceless oppressors.

Overall, a solid work of thriller/suspense and an easy five stars.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A more realistic Dystopia 6 de novembro de 2016
Por Jasmine snyder - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
What if ISIS won the war and the US was put under Sharia Law? This haunting view of a potential future captured my attention from beginning to end. Loved how the characters and setting showed the difference between Islam and authoritarianism masquerading as Islam. A fairly quick read, left open ended for a sequel, maybe?

5.0 de 5 estrelas A fictional look at Muslim occupation that could become nonfiction if current immigration policy is not tightened. 29 de dezembro de 2016

Good story line. A thought provoking scenario of what life would be like if Muslim terrorists were able to control a part of the United States. Given the continual flow of undocumented, loosely vetted Muslims into the country and their refusal to assimilate that possibility is not beyond possible.

5.0 de 5 estrelas War and military occupation never change. 16 de março de 2017
Por Joan A. Adamak - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
The the plot in The Caliphate’ is predicated on a fact that an ISIS-like group has captured the United States and has everyone at its mercy based on the harsh tenets of Sharia law.

Eisa McCarthy is a faithful Muslim, one who refuses to set aside her humanity in the name of doctrine. She is a teenager and her mother, also Muslim, has some medical training. It is against the Sharia law for a woman to doctor, but she does it anyway ,and is mostly ignored as long as she just doctors women, like birthing their babies. Eisa’s father had been a hero in their fight against invaders, but is now dead. The story is told through her eyes as she and her sister are forced to watch their mother being stoned to death as punishment for disobeying Sharia law. Her deceased father has been called a traitor for having gone against this GROUP. Because she does not obey the conquering general to stone her mother, she is taken by him and tortured for several days. She would have died at his hands, but some friends who were looking for recruits to fight this murderous group, save her and teach her how to fight and shoot as they wage war against the usurpers to the best of their ability, hoping to take their country back.

The parallels the author draws between the current landscape in Syria and Iraq and a future United States portray present-day atrocities with unflinching accuracy. The dominion of evil Eisa opposes is factual like those conditions now being experienced in Arab countries today. The author did much research in order to depict the battle scenes, birthing, sharp shooting so they become real for the reader.

This story is intense, extremely interesting and is a page turner. The reality of its depth will leave the reader rather shaken, realizing that these battles are going on today in some countries. I recommend this book.
