Publisher's Summary

Comfort doesn’t mean safety, not in a world built from the remnants of the life they’ve left behind.

Eight years after the world changed forever, Sanctuary and her surrounding settlements had settled into their new way of life. And with the events in Andorra a distant memory, they were safe...or at least they thought they were.

As Leah recounts their highs and lows, the memories of that fateful day come flooding back. The day violence visited them from the sea in a way they could never have anticipated. The way in which their whole way of life was threatened, and she was forced to battle more than just the invaders to keep her people, her family, and herself safe.

The day Leah discovered something that would change her life forever.

Can never be disappointed in DCF!

The story line is catching and great transition from book 7! I hope the way it ended means there is going to be a book 9! Need to know more about Leah!

Good story and narration

I have enjoyed all the books in this series. The narrator is very good and easy to understand.

Wow!

I originally discovered this series because I am a huge fan of RC Bray and the Columbus Day series. When I finished book 7 last week and noticed that Ford had written 2 books about Leah, I didn’t hesitate to spend my monthly credits on both of them immediately.

When I started listening, I thought I’d gotten the wrong books. Where was Bray? That isn’t Dan’s voice or Leah’s voice!!

It took me over an hour to readjust my ears and get accustomed to the new narrator, and I’m glad I did. Yes, Bray could’ve done this book as he did all the previous ones, but I think switching to a female narrator really helped me to understand this is Leah’s story, not Dan’s. She did an amazing job with the narrations also. Now that I’ve finished this book, I believe I’ve found another Audible narrator to follow and listen to. I can’t wait to listen to her on Book 9.

Meh...

The first 6 books were awesome. Book 7 was ok but this one just was kind blah and very disappointing. Even made me have no interest if another book comes out. Makes me kind of feel sad about the whole thing.

Story delivered

This was the second Leah story I have read. This one was darker and I thought I might have to skip through some graphic details. I made it through the entire book. Sadly, this story mirrors some of the actual horrors in the world that have probably already occurred. In a post apocalyptic society, I could see it happening there also. The book does gives insights into the hardships and dangers that a post apocalyptic society might face.

This is the best AIH The Leah Chronicles yet!

There's lots of action, some comedy and an awesome announcement. You also get to know other characters better. Kate Reading has improved much. I definitely could tell one character from another. Plus, she did what all narrators do, they get you lost in the story. Lastly, each time Devon C Ford writes another AIH book, I think to myself, "He's outdone himself this time". "There's no way he can improve". But, he does improve on the story, every single time.

Underwhelming

It felt rushed and I ended up feeling underwhelmed. Not up to par with the other books in the series but still a nice listen.

From a fan

Big Fan of the first four books. sadly this and the prevous Story cannot hold up with the rest of the series. Narrator ist also not my Cup of tea. the previous narrotor made the Charakters much more vibrantly

Brilliant!!! (again)

What can I say - another amazing book by the extremely talented Devon C Ford.
From the first After it Happened book I have always thought Leah's character to be amazing and I am so pleased that the story surrounding her life is being told beyond the original series. This story has dark elements with the force for good pushing forward, with Leah, Dan and the rest of the fighting team having to deal with people who have no appreciation of human life! So well told and thoroughly enjoyable! Kate's narration is excellent - the wealth and breadth of her accents are incredible, it almost felt like there were several narrators telling me this story...and the epilogue leaves perhaps the chance for more stories in this "universe"?

Another perfect instalment

At this point I’m sure Devon can do no wrong! Pacing, pros, action, emotion, realism, it’s all there, delivered perfectly by Devon and Kate. If you’ve made it this far into the series you know that you wont be disappointed. If you haven’t read book one i think it’s time to ante up on credits. I may be biased... I’ve become a fan.

An OK addition to the series..

The title tells you everything about the plot you need to know.

Not edge of the seat stuff, but entertaining enough.

However, The narrator has this this habit of finishing sentences with this tonal wobble in the last word. It;s a bit like when Australians turn everything into a sentence by lifting the tonal in the last word. Well Kate Reading lifts, drops and then lifts again. It's drives me NUTS... so I won't be listening to anymore books ready by Kate because I need my sanity..

Too Easy

The AitH series is one of the best I’ve read, listened to. The problem with this off spin is that our now heroine is telling the story and that she is immune from termination as described in book six. It would be interesting at another time to see how those left in the UK got on and next generations evolve and although we have a rough idea on how some of the established characters passed it might be morbidly interesting to see how the group coped at that time!
Always a good read and as described in an earlier review, I didn’t want this tale to end.

Another enthralling adventure with Leah!

This is another fantastic book from Devon C Ford. As with the previous title Andorra, this book develops the characters from the After it Happened series, but seen from the perspective of Leah.

The interplay of characters helps to draw the reader into the story, which although graphic at times, helps to frame the narrative.

Kate Reading does a great job at bringing the characters to life.

I couldn't stop listening, so sadly it came to an end all too soon.

Can't wait for the next installment.
