The White Dragon: Genesis is the story of the very beginning of an apocalyptic event as seen through the eyes of an 18-year-old girl. Nothing could have prepared her for what is about to happen and she has to face some seriously tough stuff before the end. During the 36 hours of terror that turn Kasey Byrne's life upside down and strip her of everything dear to her, something inside her awakens. It is gift and curse alike for it can destroy her or turn her into the most powerful weapon against the evil that has reached the shores of our world.

I really loved this story when it first came out in 2014 and after reading it I became a huge fan of Herr Bolz!
It's an incredibly quick pace, exciting and on the other side a tender story of a young heroine tough survival during the first hours and days of a terrible apocalyptic event. Tremendous reading indeed!!
Hank's performance is really good, emotional and fun when needed.
But maybe something happened during the conversion to a compatible Audible file, because the quality isn't always the best. Occasionally, it's a bit like when a phone has interference or as if the room echoes?!
Could this be checked?
Librarian with chronic migraines which cuts into reading a LOT so I listen and it is awesome for me keeps me in the blogging/reviewing game.
Kasey Byrne's loves the ocean, even from a young age she couldn't resist it's pull, even if it was just to play in the sand and watch the sun come up, until the one morning a strange man gives her a necklace with a amulet. Fast forward several years to Kasey's 18th birthday, when everything should be perfect, but goes wrong. Something changes in Kasey, but she is not sure if it is good or bad yet.
Stefan Bolz took a very ordinary world we live in and very literally turned it on its ear, in this very exciting, action packed book. His way with words lets you see everything in your mind so your not missing a thing. If you had the audio like I did you also had narrator Hank Garner using his voice to also help paint that picture for you in which he did a great job. I can't wait for The White Dragon 02: Crucible to come out on audible as well so I can find out what happens to our ragtag little group.
This was a uniquely weird and wonderful book.As a huge fan of the Wyrd universe books written by multiple authors i couldn't wait to read this story.The author creates interesting characters and a frightening world they live in.The characters struggle to survive and protect those they care for against unimaginable evil is well written.The narrator has a pleasant voice and portrayed the story well. I purchased the ebook,but received a copy of the audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I will have to actually read the book, as the narration was not at all good. The narrator seemed to be reading in a bathroom and had little passion for the reading. The story seemed like a good one, but I think it got lost in translation from printed words to voice.
