Publisher's Summary

Dante was there when the sun went out.

Trapped in a skyscraper at the end of the world, he was there as winds swept the planet and a sunless world cooled.

But the apocalypse wasn’t entirely unexpected. Joining up with the survivors as ice coated the planet, Dante must struggle to survive in a cold new world.

But as they explore the tower and scavenge for supplies, they soon discover the weather isn’t the only problem. The expected bodies aren’t there...

...and something’s moving in the dark.

a wonderful pair up

great world building that was perfectly displayed, though not often enough but no doubt more will be revealed next book. only complaint of the story is that it ended too soon. the narrator was well suited to the story and performed great.

A cool book. Get it? ‘Cool’ ...sorry

Good start to a promising series. Had a little trouble getting into the first chapter but was completely drawn in shortly after. It’s a great post apocalyptic story with smart characters and some unique monsters. The narrator is a great pick for this story and his performance really give a lot of life to it. Would definitely recommend.

True Hero

Dante is the true hero in this novel. He with stands extreme cold and dehydration to get more supplies for everyone. This is a good story and I cannot wait until book 2 comes out. The narrator gave a good performance.

Winds of Darkness 5*

I like a good apocalypse and this was a good one and I really enjoyed it.

An ice age an alien invasion and secret government organisation what more could you want.
It's cold outside and there's something hiding in the dark.
While not an action-packed story it certainly had a lot of tension the edge of your seat kind you're always wondering what's going to happen next.

I can't wait for the next book.

Really enjoyed this book!

Something completely new, a great post apoc/sci-fi mix. I thought the characters were well written and the story performed well.

A good setup!

This audiobook was a fun listen. It took a bit of getting used to at first, because of all the fleshing out and setup that's required.
I really liked the idea and premise behind this story. It sets the stage very well for future books, however at many times I felt like there was too much padding and not much development to the grand scheme of the story or pushing the characters forward. The bites of delicious narrative pieces felt too far apart, but when it got somewhere it felt really good.

Christian did a good job with narrating. I liked his inflections, delivery and narration style. My only complaint is that it felt the editing was too tight together at times to push the story forward without letting the audience digest what's going on or what just happened. I'd recommend going forward to pace yourself a bit more and let listeners really feel what's going on, at times it felt like you're trying to finish a marathon rather than telling a good story.

Overall it was a nice short listen. The story was fun although it felt padded at times, but I enjoyed it. I recieved this audiobook for free in exchange for my own honest review. I left this review voluntarily of my own accord.

I would recommend this audiobook.
