Publisher's Summary

Thirteen American cities devastated by nuclear bombs. Hundreds of thousands of people dead. And a nation descending into chaos...

After fleeing the radioactive ruins of Miami, Dakota and Logan finally reach their destination: a cabin deep in the Everglades, surrounded by a million acres of saw grass rivers, cypress forests, and gator-infested swampland.

It was supposed to be safe. It's not. Now, Dakota and Logan must fight to save the place that was supposed to save them. It's not only their home, it's their future. 

But something much larger and more insidious lurks, waiting and watching, preparing to destroy America for good...

Featuring riveting, edge-of-your-seat action and compelling characters, the acclaimed Nuclear Dawn apocalyptic survival series explores what could happen if terrorists executed a nuclear attack on the United States, told from the perspectives of ordinary people determined to survive.

Perfect for fans of Ryan Schow, Logan Keys, Harley Tate, Bobby Akart, and Grace Hamilton.

Please note: The book includes mild language and moderate violence.

Incomplete story

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.

Into the Fire

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 very first book, so I am glad that the author did such a great job in telling them.

Of course, some characters that the reader has come to love are killed (no spoilers from me), but I have come to expect that in a post-apocalyptic book. Emotions are laid raw as the other characters try to deal with the losses and I could really feel their pain.

The narrator, Stacey Glemboski, does a fantastic job. Her pacing and emotion is perfect and her performance really added a lot to my enjoyment of this book. I am so glad that I have the final book in this series in my Library because I don't wait to see how the whole thing ends!

I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book by the author/publisher/narrator and chose to review it.

Dakota and Logan are a force to be feared

l can't put this book down. It is non stop action. I can relate to many of these characters. If I was in that situation I think I would be making a lot of the same choices. I enjoyed getting to know these characters. It's about family. Who we chose to surround ourselves with that will have our backs thru thick and thin. I loved the confrontation between Dakota's group and the Shepard's. This rollercoaster ride just keeps getting better. I'm on to the last book to wrap this saga up. Justice still needs to be serve.

Into the Fire

This is a fantastic Dakota and her group fighting to keep everyone safe as well as trying to keep the Enemy at bay. The Author and Narrator really bring these characters out its like they jump right off the page as you listen. I really feel this would make a great Movie series. Its that good more than a five star rating, and definitely epic series.

Action packed installment to an excellent series!!

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.

An incredible edition to the Nuclear Dawn series.

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel

Summary:
Logan, Dakota and friends made it out of Miami arriving at the Everglades where they are sopposed to be safe, but the danger has just begun. Others made it out alive, but some of their motives re not as clear. Their arrival has not met acceptance form all sides, but Dakota is determined to keep her little sister safe no matter what it takes. Their past difficulties have yet to find them and the battle for survival is not over yet.

This is an incredible edition to the series and the audio-book brings the characters alive for the enjoyment of the reader.

Crazy good

The series is a little different making a fresh story. Z's get old. This series is realistic. It being on United States soil makes you think hard about where we are headed as a nation.

Into the Fire

This whole series has kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It is full of danger and suspense. It is captivating and very realistic. Stacey Glemboski has done such an amazing job giving each and every character their own voice complete with various accents and so many different emotions. She is becoming a favorite narrator of mine. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

good storylines.....

but im starting to think 2 books could be put together to make one book as all these little short books are getting tedious now. That being said, I’m still very much enjoying the characters and the storylines.

Thrilling penultimate instalment

“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 who has been brutally tortured. Ezra is less than pleased that Dakota has revealed the location of his bunker to strangers. He softens when he sees Eden however.

Dakota knows that the Prophet will seek retribution for the death of his men and that the next onslaught will possibly be led by Maddox at the helm. She sets about strengthening their defences and tries to enlist the help of their neighbours. Ezra has always been a recluse however and their neighbours are not willing to risk the lives of their loved ones. Can Dakota and her small group protect Eden from what’s to come and if so, at what price?

Meanwhile Shay learns that a Category 3 hurricane has been predicted to hit Miami the following night and tries to warn the group..

Into the Fire is the fourth penultimate instalment of the Nuclear Dawn series. The book alternates between Dakota, Logan, Maddox, Shay and Eden’s point of view. Once again the author has delivered a well executed, tense and compelling instalment powered by adept character development and relentless pacing. From the offset, I was impressed by the graphically detailed scenes which made it easy to visualise the intense battle between Dakota’s group and the Shepherds.

While the tension throughout the book had me anxiously turning the pages, it was the character’s that had me enthralled. Ezra was everything I was expecting and more. Several of his one on one scenes with Dakota had me weeping uncontrollably which is a testament to the author and her writing skills. We also witness the long awaited confession between Dakota and Eden as the former recounts her reasons for taking Eden from the compound. I liked how the author alternated between Dakota and Eden’s point of view as they recalled their individual viewpoints of their traumatic past.

We finally learn the truth about Logan’s tortured past and his need to atone for something that he was helpless to prevent. One can’t help sympathising with him and what happened. Last but not least is Maddox. Throughout the series I have found him to be the most complex character of all and I still feel that he will be a deciding factor in how the book ends.

All in all, this has been an exciting, nail biting and emotional addition to what has been an memorable series. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store in the conclusion of the next book.

I received an advanced free audible copy of Into the Fire and I am voluntarily reviewing it. Stacey Glemboski has masterfully brought the characters and story to life with her clear, concise delivery which made it easy to differentiate between characters.
