Eli Reznor, disillusioned by the state of democracy in modern America, dreams of redesigning a better form of government of the people, for the people, and by the people so that greedy corporations and complacent politicians no longer have all the advantages. Enloe, the first book of the Subversion Saga by Joshua Linscott, tells the story of Eli and Jessica, a former high school crush, who create a plan for a more personally accessible form of government. When they take this plan to Stephen Wilson, the front-running candidate for president who agrees with the need for change, they become targets for elements determined to maintain the status quo. After Wilson is shot while announcing his plans, Eli and Jess are forced to take desperate measures and flee for the Canadian border where they will receive help from Wilson’s friend, the Canadian Ambassador to the United States. Getting there is a problem, however, with police and the military following them with the intention of putting down what they feel is the attempted overthrow of the government. Will the movement take hold or die in the mountain passes of the Pacific Northwest?

Given the current political climate, Joshua Linscott has created the perfect fictional account of the grassroots desire for a more representative government in Enloe: The Subversion Saga Book One. Well thought-out and clearly explained, the plan behind this story will resonate with many people who feel completely left out of the political process. Exciting action drives the story from the beginnings of an idea to the creation of a movement that may prove to have far-reaching consequences as the saga moves along in Book Two. A great story!
