Publisher's Summary

For decades, nuclear Armageddon hanged over us like a mighty sword.

Some said it would be the war to end all wars.

They were wrong. The real battle against extinction was just beginning.

International best-selling author Bobby Akart, one of America's favorite storytellers, delivers up-all-night thrillers to listeners in 245 countries and territories worldwide.

This is how the world ends. Not with a bang, but with many nuclear bombs detonated around the planet. It was no longer a topic of conversation around the dinner table as in years past.

Nobody was prepared, including the world's governments. Yet the threat was always real, and the devastation was predictable.

The damage was incalculable. Millions died at the points of impact. Nuclear winter spread across the globe. A rapidly cooling climate shocked humanity and all living things...to their death.

Akart's new Nuclear Winter series depicts a world on the edge of nuclear Armageddon. Nuclear Armageddon became reality, and ordinary Americans are paying the price. This is more than the story of nuclear conflict. It's about the devastating effects wrought by a nuclear winter. Our possible future is seen through the eyes of the Albright family whose roots stretch back to the early settlement of the Florida Keys. While they fight for survival, they trek across a rapidly deteriorating landscape wrought with danger from both the elements and their fellow man.

It was not our fight, but it became our problem.

Bobby Akart has delivered intense, up-all-night thrillers that will have you whispering "just one more chapter" until the end.

To much filler

It seems every action has to be explained, all historical info on places given. It doesn’t add to the story only dragging it out. I can’t help but think it’s to lengthen the book. Seriously, for example, who needs a detail explanation for where the term “mother load” came from. I ended up skipping half of that sort of diatribe making the actual good parts maybe 3 hours of listening. Done with Akart.

too short

Love the story. Like all Bobby Akart's work it is well researched, and no one tops Kevin Pierce as a narrator. However, this is not a novel. It is a novella at the price of a full book. Shame on you Mr. Akart.

Way too short

Love his books. This is a great series. Just way too short to have to wait for the next one to come out.

So Slow

As with all his series, great concept dragged at a painfully slow pace. Should be 2 books, tops.

A series that didn't warm me eough for 5 books

While I did enjoy the new spin on an apocalyptic adventure, IMO not BA’s best work. It was at best a three-book series, possibly four but each was just too short for a five-book series. Possibly to recoup $ incurred during C19.

Will not disappointment!!

I purchased Armageddon before it was available on audiobook because I could not wait to hear what happens next. Im now anxiously awaitinf Book 3!! Ive read and enjoyed many of his series, but this storyline is different. It is gripping an unpredictable with connected characters in muliple locations each with their own plot. In my opinion, this is some of his best work. As I wait until April 22nd, I started the New Madrid series just to keep my mind off this family and Nuclear Winter.

Great

I loved this book by Bobby Akart. I also loved the characters. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I would recommend this book and all of Bobby’s books. I listened to this book on audiobook.

Half a book, chopped into 5 short parts. But okay.

This is a review of the 5 part book series as a whole and is spoiler free

the biggest disappointment was in the title of this series. nuclear winter played very little part in the story which takes place during the first month of what is described as at least a 10 year process that gets worse over time.
I would have liked to see time unfold with the very likeable characters in the story.

The next issue I have is with the accuracy of how fallout works. I found the explanations and specific events involving characters near the blast of a ground destination of a nuclear warhead hard to believe was well researched. there was no explanation of wind direction or range of radioactive fallout however references are made to the air quality that contained fallout are present which if was radioactive would have very likely resulted in sickness or death.

I did like the characters and their journeys. I think the end of the series was very premature with many things left unanswered and now makes me wonder why they were ever even brought up.

I dont regret listening to the books but I will likely avoid titles by the same author. who seemed to take half a book and choped it into 5 short parts.

as for the performance, many of the characters are older and so having an older voice actor was reasonable choice. however his range of voices seems low and at times I got annoyed with what I can only describe as shakey voice and some whistling in S's. I got used to it and I won't say it was a bad job because the narrator did have good emotion and presence.
