Live in InfamyReturn to the world of The Only Thing to Fear In the eighty years since the Axis powers won World War II with their genetically engineered super soldiers America has changed drastically in the hands of the unforgiving victors But there are still those who aspire to what the country used to stand for freedom f I think this was an amazing book about a different outcome of WWII and the axis powers won the war I enjoyed how the setting was placed around modern day I also liked that they had created a revolt against the axis powers and made up special abilities for specific people These specific people had to take a dangerous drug or were born with it I liked the amount of action and the lead up to climax Ren had to persevere through many downs he had to face
