Publisher's summary

Surviving the blast is only the beginning....

Dakota Sloane, a tough-as-nails former foster kid, has spent her life running from the past. Logan Garcia, a man haunted by secrets, has only one goal: to drink himself into oblivion.

They're two strangers in a bar - until the news reports nuclear bombs in New York City and Washington, D.C. Fearing Miami may be next, Dakota's first thought is to grab her little sister - still trapped in the system - and get the hell out of Dodge. 

Then the world explodes. As buildings collapse and fires rage, utter chaos erupts. Trapped in the burning city, Logan and Dakota have less than 10 minutes to seek shelter before the lethal cloud of fallout descends. 

But Dakota's sister is still out there. To rescue her, Dakota will need Logan's help, but can she trust him? And how far is she willing to go to save the only family she has left? 

Point of Impact is an apocalyptic survival thriller exploring what could happen if terrorists successfully executed a coordinated nuclear attack on the United States, told from the perspectives of regular people determined to survive. 

"I absolutely loved this book! Multidimensional characters...great writing...I recommend this promising new PA series." (Ryan Schow, author of the best-selling Last War series)

"Great! A good story with unique characters and thorough research. I was pulled in from the first page." (Kate L. Mary, author of the best-selling Broken World series)

not particularly good

Too much describing situation. Feels like padding to get to a required number of words.

Action packed!

This first book in Kyla Stone’s Nuclear Dawn series is addicting. She has woven a cast of characters with very real human flaws and failings all trying to survive a nuclear attack on America. This story immediately grabbed my attention and kept me on edge until the final word. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series to see how Dakota and the group fare in post-apocalyptic Miami. Stacey Glemboski's narration make this story come alive!

written for 5th graders

I had high hopes for this series, but I'm sorry to say I was very disappointed. I read some reviews that scoffed at the "young-girl-becomes-field-general", and I should have listened. Every part of this book - and I mean every single part - is a cliché. I listened to 75% of it, then I couldn't take it anymore.

Needs Better Exposition

The main character is a young woman with a an unrealistic amount of specific knowledge about a nuke, she's constantly explaining everything to others, and why adult strangers would take the word or a young woman like that is difficult for me to go with. I just didn't like it and didn't find it believable.

Great Storytelling

I have listened to Book One 3 times in 4 days. I wanted to squeeze out the last drop before moving on to the Book Two.
All I can say is it ended too soon. I was just getting wrapped up in the characters and they're gone. Should have been twice as long.

Stout stuff!

This time, our country is terrorized by coordinated attacks against multiple cities utilizing suitcase nukes. This is the one we’ve been afraid of and one of the possibilities most likely to occur. Our tough, street-wise heroine Dakota Sloane is waiting tables when the bombs begin to go off. Her first thoughts are of her younger sister who is fifty-miles away in a foster home. Dakota had recently been released from the Child Services System on her eighteenth birthday. Her only wish is to stabilize her life in order to gain custody of her fifteen-year-old sister. All those ideas are out the window now, and Dakota must get to her sister as quickly as possible. Dakota, along with several restaurant patrons, leaves the restaurant for a safer location and to search for necessary supplies. Ultimately, they will agree to accompany Dakota on her quest to rescue her sister. “Point of Impact” will be an account of their journey. The focus will be on the interaction of the small group under extreme pressure as they make their way through a city in chaos. The differences in personalities, strengths, and weaknesses will stand out, and the group will have to pull together as one to survive. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Story! Awesome Post apocalyptic story!

This genre is not my usual go to genre, I came across this Author by way of a different PA series. I tend to stick to what I know and love. But I am very glad I opened my bubble a bit. Kyla Stones writing and story sucked me in. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. And would / have recommended to many in my book circle. I have read / listened to many of her other series and she is now one of my top authors. Thank you!

interesting... so far

this is an interesting premise (multiple nuclear bombs decimating several prominent US cities), but this book only deals with the Miami one, and only a small group of people. It is a bit slower paced than I would have preferred. But I know it's a series, and I'm definitely jumping right into the next to see how it all works out.

like I spent $27 on a comic book!

this book was so insubstantial for the cost that it feels like I watched a half hour sitcom, except missed the last 5 minutes. why would I buy a book that went nowhere?! it just ended randomly, without even getting close to any sort of ending, or even a good place to stop. boo. hiss.
