Reviews of Republic

 Charles Sheehan-Miles is an exceptional writer.... --Midwest Book Review

 "...A scenario taken right out of today's newspapers...anyone who prizes the traditional rights and freedoms of our nation will be both frightened and alerted by the near-future possibilities...a fast-paced, well plotted action story of the sort one can not put down."--Toby Grace, Out In Jersey Magazine

 "This novel of America's future may be prophetic...It will disturb you...It should."-- Daily Kos

 From Twitter: 

 Freaked me out. Best novel I've read in ages. @csheehanmiles is psychic.

 In light of the #occupy movement, I recommend everyone read @csheehanmiles' Republic. Scarily prescient.
