Love this story of Dakota and her sister Eden, Logan, Julio and the rest. It is full of action and emotion. I want to tell you who dies, who lives and who escapes, but you will have to read it yourself.
I listened to it and the narration was very good.

My favorite character is Logan, who is wracked with guilt from his past deeds and thinks he is not good enough for Dakota. He has already gone through a metamorphosis or sorts and this continues, though he has fallen back too. I want to see how

ARGH!! I loathe when things don't turn out no matter how prepared you are. This was all action but so dang frustrating, and I'm so annoyed. But I liked it!

“Evil has a way of spreading beyond its boundaries. People think you can contain it, but you can’t. The evil in that place would’ve spilled into our lives sooner or later. It’s not your fault.” - Haasi

Dakota, Logan, Julio, Park and Eden arrive at the bunker in the Everglades. As they approach the cabin, they see several bodies and come to the terrible realisation that they are too late. With the element of surprise on their side, they are able to overcome the remaining Shepherds and rescue Ezra

The fourth book of the Nuclear Dawn series sees Dakota, Eden, Logan, Julio and Park finally closing in on the safe location they had been heading for, ever since the nuclear attack in the midst of Miami. Miami was only one of thirteen cities that was left devastated and the entire nation thrown into chaos, by these nuclear attacks. No-one knows who is responsible and matters could start to escalate all over the world. Dakota and her small group have made it away from the ruins and lethal ...more

Crash and burn! Kyla rocks this baby bouncing it on home to the rhythm of its own beat. Satisfying is an understatement, this baby comes packing a punch that's sure to please. All the turmoil and distress running rampant hooks you from the start and reels you in for the duration. Sparks fly as suspense and danger ensues in epic proportions showcasing this thrilling storyline and gripping plot. A throng of vexing circumstances and a bevy of surprising mishaps

With this addition to the Nuclear Dawn series Kyla Stone proves yet again she’s one of the best at writing apocalypse fiction. I’m really hooked on this series and can’t get enough of Dakota and Logan. With each book I’m always left asking, ‘What can Kyla Stone do next; where will she take this?’ I suppose the simple answer is: anything! She sends the story one way and then takes it off on another route hitting us with nail biting tension the whole way. This time things are possibly more dire ...more

A great continuation to a great series! This book is full of action, but it has so much more. Kyla Stone has created amazing characters, full of flaws and just trying to survive in a world decimated by nuclear attack.

The author tells the main characters' stories with great emotion and the narrator does an amazing job in portraying these emotions. You could really feel the pain as Dakota, Eden and Logan finally revealed their innermost feelings. I have been waiting for these stories since the

Dakota, Logan, Eden, and Julio, are headed into the Everglades. Knowing Maddox, and other members from the Shepherd's of Mercy, will most likely be holding Ezra hostage. Will they make it in time, or will will Dakota lose the man she considers family? If he is alive, will Ezra welcome her and Eden back, or tell them to hit the road?

This 4th book in the series is, pretty much, non-stop action. How can Dakota keep Eden, and herself safe? CAN she keep them safe? What about Logan and Julio? The

Fast paced – page turning – exciting! Another winner! The story continues and is even more intriguing. Miami and 12 other major US cities are struggling to survive the nuclear attacks. People are looting, dying from radiation poisoning and are making a mass exodus from the major cities. The gangs are causing chaos. The hospitals and the make shift medical areas are over flowing. There aren’t enough doctors or nurses to help. Everyone is desperate. Dakota and her friends are on their way to find ...more

Kyla Stone is obviously an incredible author of skills and high talent who knows how to write spellbinding stories. This series has earned itself 5 stars for each book and provides some factual information that is obviously well researched. Tidbits of fact salted throughout the series enhances the story and provides much for one to think about while this exciting story unfolds. A memorable read and I have found another super

What a nail-biting read this is! Dakota and her friends have survived many dangers, and some are still to come. The previous books have been full of twists and turns, and this one again has surprises to come for the reader. The characters are well developed, but also interesting and ones you can empathise with - so totally necessary to make a book with characters that seem real and that we can care about.
The books do need to be read in order to fully appreciate what happens, but if you have

Another hit

I love the style this series is written in. It’s hard to believe only four weeks have passed since the bond went off in Book one. It’s fast paced and detailed. There was one part I thought was a little strange, but it’s a spoiler so I’ll stay quiet about the details. It was something a young kid just wouldn’t have thought about.

It didn’t take away from the story and I can understand why the author did it, however.

All in all, still a great read and I can’t wait to dig into the final

There was a lot of action in this book as well as some good backstory presented. I was also glad to have Hawthorne and Shay continue in the story, especially since they were a reminder that nuclear detonations had occurred. That part of the story is a bit submerged with the Shepherd drama, though I am very curious to find out their role in what happened to the cities. Most of the characters, even crusty old Ezra, were able to get some decent growth and there was a great setup for the next book.

I won’t say much about the storyline otherwise I will spoil it for others. I listened to this book on Audible and it does not disappoint. The narrator is brilliant, she really captures the emotions. Put it this way, I was crying near to the end. I have already started listening to book 5 in the series.

I really love that there are strong female lead characters in this book and a diverse range of other characters. It makes it easy for me to relate. Epic series and author.

The pace picked up a little in this episode of the story, but it's become more contrived. The interpersonal relations between Dakota and Logan deteriorated into utter absurdity. Again, the story is incomplete, ending in another cliffhanger.

Stacey Glemboski delivers an excellent performance. She gives distinctive voices to the characters and paces her narration well.

Note: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This fourth installment finds Dakota and the crew achieving their travel goal, but sometimes achieving your goal may not really be what you want. Along with nonstop action and intrigue, this episode provides more insight into several of the characters. Once again Kyla Stone has crafted a story that grabs the reader/listener from the beginning and refuses to let them go until that final sentence. Stacy Glemboski’s narration is excellent as usual.

This series keeps getting better.
The characters are raw and real, you can feel their emotions pouring off the page as if they’re your own.
As always the pace is fast, the action is gritty and the struggles show the complexity of humanity, the good the bad and the ugly in all its forms.

This penultimate instalment of the Nuclear Dawn series does not fail to deliver. The usual exciting, nail-biting, and gritty read I have come to expect from this great author. Can't wait to read the final book.

Epic story

This story covers many frightening thoughts people have avoided with the "what if's". The author shows how traumatic a nuclear attack could be. Great storyline and suspense made for the reader to ponder.

I'm hooked on this series. I love the characters and want to know what is going to happen next. Will Maddox redeem himself???? What will happen to the Shepard s??? Will Logan and Dakota get together? All these questions I have.

Love Stone's writing, and this was actually my favorite of this series so far. I like that she gave us lots of back story and focused on the relationships of the MCs. I didn't like that she left us with another cliffhanger like the last three. Oh well, guess I'll be buying book five.
