Live in Infamy Read Online Free - Return 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 for all.
In the Western American Territories, Chinese American Ren Cabot has lost nearly everything to Imperial Japan's rule. After the public execution of his mom for treason five years ago, Ren lives under constant scrutiny of the Empire, afraid that one wrong step will rip apart what remains of his family for good. However, when a chance encounter with a resistance group offers Ren an opportunity to save lives and quite possibly topple the government, he agrees to their deadly plot. But his role will lead him straight into the heart of enemy, and if caught, death would be a much better fate than what the Empire will do to him . . .

Live in Infamy continues the alternative history begun in The Only Thing to Fear. The premise of both books is simple - it's 80 years after the Allies have lost WWII, and the Axis powers have divided up the United States into three territories - the Eastern American Territory (EAT) ruled by the N...

I could not bring myself to finish this book.
I was so excited for the premise of this book. A "what-if" alternate history where Japan controlled the western half of the United States after defeating the US in World War II sounded fresh and original. Unfortunately, this book isn't really alternate...

This book was sent to me as part of the Scholastic Preview pack for the Spring 2018 Book Fair.
I was not sure what to expect from this book. I knew it was an alternate version of historical fiction (the idea of what the US would be like if the Axis powers had won WWII), but I did not realize that...

I liked this book because it had a really good begging (I liked the other parts of the book to but the begging was mt favorite) I usually think that beginnings of books are really boring but the first 5 or so chapters really explained a lot of stuff. I liked the idea of the...

This book was a pretty good book. I like to read historical fiction based around WWII, and this book was definitely a good choice on my part. I really loved how quickly paced this book was, and how there were so many plot twists mixed into each chapter. The action and bloodshed was perfectly exec...

children's middlegrade alternate history/fiction - standalone companion to The Only Thing to Fear (you don't have to read them in order, but if that kind of thing matters to you, read the other one first).
I read the first couple chapters (p.17) and so far it's pretty good--skillful world-building...

I checked this book out because alternative histories fascinate me. However, this book really left the alternative history genre and went in a science fiction direction. People who can fly, control minds, and inflict pain with a touch of fingers isn't really what I was looking for.
