Summary

In a heartbeat, everything grinds to a halt. On Christmas Eve, the lights go out. Vehicles stop working. Communications break down. Reclusive former soldier Liam Coleman doesn't want to be anywhere near bustling downtown Chicago the day before Christmas. But his twin brother and his pregnant sister-in-law need him. 

But mere minutes after leaving O'Hare, their car crashes, along with hundreds of other vehicles. When Liam's phone stops working, he begins to suspect something more sinister than a local power outage. But before he can react, the first plane falls from the sky.

When a super EMP takes down the nation's power grid, Liam knows it's time to bug out. He's prepared, but he never expected to be caught in the middle of Chicago as chaos erupts. With society collapsing before his very eyes, Liam will have to risk more than he ever thought possible to protect the ones he loves if it's not already too late.

Chaos Rising is a riveting post-apocalyptic EMP survival thriller set in the Edge of Collapse universe, a brand new series from best-selling author Kyla Stone. Perfect for fans of Jack Hunt, T.L. Payne, and Ryan Schow.

Great series.

Having read the whole series (so far) and loved it I got to listen to this prequel as well. I love all of the Kyla Stones books I have read and you cant go wrong with anything narrated by Stacey Glemboski, so it was a win win.

Awesome introduction to the series!

Great job setting up this post-apocalypse series! I was grabbed from the beginning and needed to listen to the next one right away!

Loved it...I need more!

This is a great start to Kyla Stone’s new series. So easy to become immersed into the characters and the storyline. The pace and tension was just right and the narrator really brings the characters to life.

I am really looking forward to listening to the next instalment. It cannot be recorded soon enough.

It could be better

This story is good but what irritated me is that the author could have made 3 books into one instead of separating them. Your are spending way to many credits trying to complete the series.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This was a great start to the series. I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy all of the books so I just started with the prequel and when it finished I bought book 1 right away. I needed to know what was going to happen with next. This book is pretty dark and very sad but it's a PA so I expected that.

The narration was great, I enjoyed her narration. At first I thought it was odd to have a female narrator for a mostly male POV but she does a great job.

Great story and narration

This author and narrator are new to me, and I am glad I found them. I'm no good at writing reviews so I'll just say I'm already into the next book and loving it.

My new favorite narrator and top autor

I really enjoyed this book. There was a lot of practical information about survival after an EMP, great characters and character development. Well-written story and superb narrator. I can't wait for the last two books in this series!

Heart wrenching and amazing

This prequel gives backstory for the series. Parts are difficult to believe but that’s what fiction is. Well-written and interesting. I can’t wait to read the entire series.

nice back story!

Nice getting the backstory to the series. Well written, connected perfectly with the rest of the books.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars for the performance is because it wasn't narrated by Kevin Pierce. That said, the narration was good.

Good Informative Prequel for the Series

I was given this free review copy audio-book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of Chaos Rising - An Edge of Collapse Prequel by Kyla Stone and narrated by Stacey Glemboski. While not necessary for the series, Edge of Collapse, it provided insight and background information on one of the protagonists. It was helpful in understanding this character and his thought processes and actions/reactions. A great start to the series. And Stacey is the perfect narrator for this series. She makes the story come alive in my mind.

A Breathtaking Experience

Kyla Stone once again leads us into the rarely mentioned, cobwebbed corners of human frailty, despair, and hope. Stone writes in a voice anyone can relate to. She expertly navigates a world brought to it's knees with the type of literary care and expertise of an author twice her age. I ALWAYS look forward to seeing the names Kyla Stone and Stacey Glemboski on an audiobook. The combination ensures that I'm in for a thrilling "Audio Treat!"

I fell in love with Stacey Glemboski's voice the moment I first heard her speak. Of course, it was a Kyla Stone audiobook I "took a chance on" a few years ago. It was the first of Stone's books I'd ever heard, and I was hooked from that very moment. Glemboski's love of a great story is clearly evident in the way she brings the characters so powerfully to life.

If you are looking for thrilling adventures, and maybe an escape from your troubles and woes, then you will not be disappointed with the worlds Stone has created. So, strap yourself in and prepare for a wild ride the moment you press play.
