This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I was given this book in audio form. Being from the U.K. myself, I really love finding a new U.K. author especially if the books are also on Audible.

I really enjoyed the storyline because it started with the past and the present in separate chapters which eventually merge into the present. There was the right amount of action and tension captured. I loved the origin of how the virus came about, that again the story was based in the U.K. because I can picture it much easier. The author doesn’t keep favourite characters all the time which is brutal but also what it needed.

Would I listen to or read the next book? I definitely would. I hope that there is another book in the future. The narration was great. He captured the characters really well and he wasn’t boring at all.

Great book

Note for the author~please check the recording. When the main character confronts the murderer, the recording repeats that part twice.

I really enjoyed Aubrey Parsons performance as always. He is one of my top 3 voice actors. Mr Parsons really knows how to bring a storyline to life. I could listen to him read the telephone book haha.

The storyline was good however it reminded me a little of a typical teen horror movie and of a previous short story I have listened to by the same author.

I have listened to the first book of this series and then this one. I still like the storyline however what spoiled it slightly for me was the narration of the other characters. They all seemed to have the same voice and volume (loud). I think either a little variation or none at all would have been better.

Iain Rob Wright is fast becoming the master of stories about redemption, guilt and revenge and Aubrey Parsons is the master of bringing these stories to life. I really enjoyed this book and trying to figure out who was the enemy.

I love the flow of the storyline and the narration. The characters were brilliant and a Mr Parsons brings them to life. His narration is certainly not boring. I enjoyed this book so much, that straight away I brought another book mentioned at the end (which is slightly linked to this book).

If you’re a fan of Iain Rob Wright, there are slight links to other books by him. Enjoy!

I am not sure if I would have liked the book as much, if I had read it however listening to the book~I really enjoyed it. At first I thought the storyline would be similar to the show “V”....however I was mistaken. It is not predictable. There are plenty of tense parts and the narrator did a good job of being the characters and emotions to life. I am already listening to the next book.

This is the final book in the Nuclear Dawn series and it is a fitting conclusion to the series. I loved the sad/happy ending, the tension throughout most of the book and the sheer amount of emotion which came across really well. The narrator did an outstanding performance again. I won’t give any of the storyline away & spoil it. It has been a pleasure listening to this series.

I won’t say much about the storyline otherwise I will spoil it for others. I have listened to the previous 3 books in the series & this one does not disappoint. The narrator is brilliant, she really captures the emotions. I was crying near to the end.

I really love that there are strong female lead characters in this book & a diverse range of other characters. It makes it easy for me to relate. Epic series and author.
