I listened to this entire series twice about two years apart and am writing the review after listening the second time. There aren't too many books I want to listen to more than once but this one has a good mix which keeps it interesting. If you are considering this book, you should start with Last Light, the first book in the series. Night Light is the second book and True Light is the third. This one (Dawn's Light) is the fourth. In Last Light, all electrical power and electronic devices on Earth mysteriously stop working one day. The books follow a typical American family, the Brannings, as they try to survive in what will become a very real crisis. As they encounter impossible situations their Christian faith is challenged and strengthened. Highly recommend this series.
Each book left me wanting more. Amazing story line which had me hanging on every word. I love the way it makes you realize we could be the people in this book someday...actually we very well maybe the people in this book one day. Great work by Terri Blackstock. I hated for the story (series) to end.
I didn't like the narrator's voice, and the story was a little predictable. And one plot line is drawn out over all 4 books which just about drove me insane, and no it's not the blackouts. But there is a mystery and the ending. Well I defy you not to cry over the ending.
I listened to the whole series and loved each one. The story line is great and very inspiring.
Who says the couldn't actually happen. Loved it.!!!!!
I love listening to audiobooks and enjoy mysteries and thrillers. My favotite authors are Randy Singer, David Baldacci and Vince Flynn.
I haven't read the books but the audio versions were all unabridged and the narrator brought the characters to life which is why I enjoy audiobooks. The narrator, Susie Breck, did a very good job.
The premise of the series is similar to "Solar Flare" by Larry Burkett in that the world is thrown into chaos when all electricity, electronics, etc are destroyed due to a natural phenomenon.
I have enjoyed the previous books in this thought-provoking, yet enjoyable series. I really wondered how it would end and what would happen if the power came back on. Would the characters revert back to their pre-outage selves, or would they keep the hard-learned lessons they had learned? The author stayed true to her theme of learning to rely on God throughout the previous books, so I hoped she would continue. The ending does not disappoint. Good series!
This series is about what happens when there is no electricity. It was really well told and I felt excellent in every way. I felt the characters were realistically portrayed. What society turns into was very thought provoking. If you ever wondered if you would steal to feed your children or ???? This book gives you a lot to think about.
