Publisher's Summary

If the radiation doesn't kill you, the survivors will....

Dakota and Logan continue their treacherous journey to escape the city, but danger threatens at every turn. They must avoid uncontrollable fires, unstable buildings, and deadly fallout contamination.

Dakota knows of a place to ride out the coming chaos - a safe house deep in the Everglades. If Logan helps her rescue her sister, she'll take him with her.

But Dakota's past has caught up to her. Amid the radioactive ruins of Miami, someone is hunting her. And he won't stop until he has her...or they're both dead.

Featuring fast-paced action and strong, complex characters, the Nuclear Dawn apocalyptic survival series is perfect for fans of Harley Tate, Bobby Akart, Jack Hunt, and Grace Hamilton.

Please note: This audiobook is suitable for older listeners due to mild language and moderate violence in the story.

Excitement at every turn of the page!

Kyla Stone continues to empress me with this storyline!!! I was on the edge of my seat listening to Dakota’s journey to rescue Eden. Each character is developed in a way to either make the reader cheer them on or hope they find justice.

Stacey Glemboski has moved her way into my top 5 female narrators!!! She helps the listener feel emotional along with the characters and the trials they face.

A harrowing take of survival

Kyla Stone continues the story of Dakota on her desperate drive to find her sister Eden. The flash back scenes help reveal the tragedies that shaped two lives. The continued character development helps bring personality to the motley band and adds to the depth of the story line. Following everyday individuals through a post nuclear event is gripping and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. looking forward to book three in audiobook.

Great story!

I love this book! It kept my attention immediately and didn’t let go. The narration was wonderful. The speaker has a good, steady cadence and is easily understood. I have both read and listened to this story, both versions are great!

Fear the Fallout

This is a fantastic series that is fast paced and action paced. With twists and turns. This read grabs me right from the beginning to the end, its a real page turner, that has epic scenes that you can see in your minds eye as you listen. And the Narrator does a Fantastic job as well. The characters just jump right off the page as you listen. The Author has done a fantastic job at bring the characters out and at World Building This series is right up there with The Hunger Games and Divergent. This would make for a fantastic movie series.

What a story! Gets even better as it progresses!

Fear the Fallout (Nuclear Dawn, Book 2) by Kyla Stone and narrated by Stacey Glemboski is a thrilling second book to the series and I’m loving it! Recommend if you’re looking for something in the post-apocalyptic genre, something new and will hold your attention, a shorter listen, or if you enjoyed the first book.

The book beings with the characters making their way to rescue Eden. They continue to deal with the fallout and the world running amok. We learn more of everyone’s past including the sister’s time spent with Ezra and how things came to be. The story once again being told from Dakota, Eden, Logan, and Maddox’s point of view.

The narrator, Stacey Glemboski, was great. Easy-to-listen-to voice and a good pace.

Overall, I’d recommend, especially if you’re looking for a new post-apocalyptic series. I listened to this one straight through- very difficult to put down.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: Similar warnings as the first book- fallout and death from the nuclear bombs, foster system problems (abuse), alcoholism, gangs, guns, violence (what you’d expect if the world fell apart), past abuse that the sister’s suffered at hands of a religious organization (beatings or similar type of abuse), religious fanatics (minimal preaching).

*I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!

Way to detailed

I got this second in the series but the in-depth too descriptive story has you thinking “jeez get on with it!” A 3 chapter fight scene? Every fist thrown, how it felt, what is the thought behind each punch.....who gives a crap. The basis of the story is good but it’s torture getting through the listening. I frankly no longer give a crap what each minuscule thought is of each character. This book is way to into thought processes and not the actually story line. I doubt I will be able to suffer through the next.

Dakota continues to be her badass self

The second novell allows us to continue Dakota's journey (together with her group) to reach her sister. The story is just as good as the first installment and Kyla Stone manages to keep me up listening way past my bed time once again. The narrator is excellent and well suited for this story with all its characters. I can't wait for the next book!

Engaging sequel to Point of Impact

If the radiation doesn’t kill you, the survivors will.

Forty eight hours have passed since the catastrophic nuclear attack which targeted thirteen major cities in the US. Now that the radiation levels have lowered somewhat, Dakota, accompanied by Logan Shay and Julio, set off on a treacherous journey to rescue her sister Eden.

As they trek through the radioactive ruins of downtown Miami, they are horrified at the scale of the devastation. Bodies as well as wounded civilians trapped under unstable buildings with no help from the authorities forthcoming. Lawlessness is rife, with those taking full advantage of the situation by looting and killing those who stand in their way. When a small team of first responders fall foul of the Blood Outlaw Gang, Dakota and Logan must use their wits to help them. With Maddox closing in on Eden however, will Dakota reach her in time?

Fear the Fallout is the second riveting post apocalyptic survival book of the Nuclear Dawn series. Once again the author has delivered a well executed, tense and compelling instalment. I was particularly impressed by the wonderful vivid and stunning imagery used by the author to describe the scale of the destruction in the wake of the attacks. I felt like I was there with the survivors, experiencing the sights, smells and sounds. The stench of decomposing corpses in the blistering heat, coupled with the smoke from still burning buildings and cars. The agonising moans and cries from those trapped, begging for release through death.

The strength of the book lies in its exceptional character development. Each character showed real depth and substance. While the first book set up the world building, the second book delves deeper into Dakotas and Eden’s past, chronicling their escape from the Shepherds of Mercy as well as their first encounter with the reclusive Ezra Burrows.

We learn more about Logan’s struggle to deal with the demons of his past. His guilt and self loathing at the innocent lives he took, only relents when seeking solace in a bottle. Several times he’s required to step up in the book and at first he’s unable to do so. It’s only when Dakota is in real danger that he comes through and earns her respect. We also learn more about Maddox and his reasons for needing to bring Dakota and Eden back to the Compound. Having fallen out of favour with the Shepherds of Mercy as well as his father for allowing the girls to escape, he hopes to be welcomed back once more.

As the book progresses, there is a subtle change in the group dynamics. Dakota and her fellow survivors may have started off as strangers but it becomes apparent along the way that they have bonded. While everyone looked to Dakota for guidance in the first book, this time it’s Dakota who will need the help of her friends. I’m looking forward to reading the next instalment of this engaging series.

I received an advanced free audible copy of Fear the Impact and I am voluntarily reviewing it. Stacey Glemboski has once again delivered a dynamic well paced performance. Her style of narration throughout both instalments has been exceptional, making it easy for listeners to distinguish between each character, particularly the male voices.
