Publisher's Summary

The final audiobook in the acclaimed Duskwalker trilogy.

Wren is living in Greenstone under the temporary care of Charles and Mol and the protection of Chapel. Unable to determine the fate of his mother and those he left behind in Morningside, Wren believes there is nothing left to do but wait for Asher's final blow...until a man named Haiku walks into the Samurai McGann, looking for Three. After learning of Three's fate, Asher's ascension, and Wren's gift, Haiku offers his help, and together they set out to find the remnants of House Eight and convince them to help. As Cass and the few who survived the fall of Morningside face overwhelming odds to escape Asher and the Weir, they realize it is impossible...until their daring and probably suicidal plan to strike turns out to have surprising results and unexpected discoveries.

Back in Greenstone, one of the border cities likely facing Asher's next assault, Charles uses his network of influence to try to create a city defense.

What the Critics Say

"The post-apocalyptic world that Jay Posey created in Three is brilliantly constructed, it's just chock-full of the cool stuff, futuristic gadgets (guns and the like), augmented people and not forget the Weir." (The Book Plank)
"Three is a fantastic piece of post-apocalyptic fiction...simply stunning from beginning to end." (SFBook.com)

    "A neat conclusion, tied the trilogy up nicely."

    I know a number of people did not much care for Morningside Fall (and I would agree that it was the weakest of the three stories) but after reading Dawnbreaker, I feel much better about it. Essentially as it was a necessary vehicle to introduce Gamble, Mouse and company. I think that if you liked Three at all, you will get into this with some ease.

    This book gives you a bit of a glimpse into the background that many felt the trilogy was lacking. It builds up to a significant ending which I struggled to believe was going to happen with only 2 hours to go.

    If I had a criticism, there was too much faffing about at the start of the book and it wound up too quickly, for example, they spend a couple of narration hours escaping a building and running to a shelter but the final showdown is about 30 minutes.

    Overall though, I enjoyed this as much as 'Three', I felt the main characters had been richly portrayed and I felt myself rooting for them all. I'm glad I consumed all 3 books and will look out for more Jay Posey in the future.

    I really enjoyed the narration from Jeff Daniels, he has joined Sean Barrett at the top of my favourites list.

    "Fantastic series with perfect narration"

    This is a very well crafted series of novels - in some ways it feels derivative - there are several familiar elements but those elements are combined so expertly, with strong characterisation and great pacing. I cannot recommend this series highly enough, if you find yourself a little confused at the outset stick with it, just strap yourself in and enjoy the ride.

    "Extremely enjoyable trilogy"

    All three books were completely gripping - full of suspense with a great storyline. Great narration from Luke Daniels! I was particularly impressed with the strong, positive female characters - Cass, Gamble, Mol, kythe, Kit - and of course I loved Three. Foe alsoleft his mark on me ... mmmmmm ...

    Intrigued to see if mr posey will carry on with his creative world - many questions remain for me - what exactly are the weir, how did they come into existence, how do they create themselves from corpses/the dead ... Questions, questions ... unless I missed some vital information regarding this. Thoroughly enjoyable listen. Thank you Mr Posey!

    "All in all a good trilogy, and well told story"

    I have to be honest; I really was a bit hesitant about starting this one after my disappointment in book 2. And before I get started I do want to say that Jay Posey has created an incredible new world (at least for me it is). I found it to be very original and not like anything else I have been reading/listening to lately. Which is very refreshing because so many books lately seem so similar that as I’m reading I’m thinking…have I already read this…?

    So, what to say without giving spoilers ……This one picks up where book two leaves off, Wren and Cass separated, Asher in charge of Morningside and the build up to the showdown. I have to say, I don’t know if I just lost my enthusiasm for the series or if my reading/listening funk is just making every thing seem kinda ‘meh’, I will most likely come back to this series in the future and give the last two books another go. The ending doesn’t quite top the awesome beginning to the series with Three, it is much, much better than the second installment. I did feel like this one dragged a bit, but it does pick up and everything is wrapped up neatly.

    The narrator Luke Daniels…..I can’t say enough about him, he is an awesome narrator and he did an amazing job with this trilogy. He is one of my favorite narrators and one of the main reasons I decided to try this series.

    For all of my complaints about books 2 & 3 and my reading/listening funk, I do have to say that the first book, Three, really was awesome, one of my favorites for 2015. All in all a good trilogy, and well told story

    If you love sci-fi , this is a very good very good series with great story line. Book 1 and 3 are my favorites but the series is definitely worth your time.

    "Chang of tactics"

    Normally I just rate the books and not do a full review, but this series changed that. This series was well written, well read, and well received . To incorporate many stories and not confuse the listeners alone is worth it. When you add in a great story it becomes a win win.

    "The best of the three"
    If you could sum up Dawnbreaker in three words, what would they be?

    Efficient Wrap Up


    Any additional comments?

    All through out I was thinking "There is no way this book is going to be able to wrap up everything" But it did, it managed to get a whole lot done in its pages and done well. It was entertaining, I was rarely if ever bored, and it did not leave me disappointed. The closest thing to a negative I can think for it was that its wrap up of the 'Houses' seemed a bit weak but I can imagine there was little choice there. So yeah its great.

    "Sad when it ended...I will miss the charaters."
    Would you listen to Dawnbreaker again? Why?

    I don’t listen to books twice nor watch movies a 2nd time. I was very sad when this series ended and would continue with the story if another book is added.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dawnbreaker?

    I enjoyed when Cass came into her own and found herself and her strength.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Luke is a phenomenal narrator. I loved his voices and style; he could find each character every time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Disconnection, the only way out.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the world that Jay built. It felt like it could have been the future of so many places in time or maybe not far off from the world we live in now.

    I also enjoyed the simplicity and organization of the series. Easy to understand and keep moving forward with reputation to help remember the story before. I hate complicated books that you need a map, directions, ingredients list, and legend just to make it through the first chapter
