Summary

"With every light comes a shadow." - Dustfall

In a ravaged tribe on the edge of humanity, the suspicious death of a chief thrusts a man into a dark realm for which he is unprepared. When Jonah inherits leadership of the Elk Clan from his father, many in the old man's inner circle question his son's ability to lead the tribe to their winter shelter at the ruins of Eliz. A dark stranger, a journey over hundreds of miles of dangerous highway and clashes with feral gangs will push Jonah to the edge.

From best-selling authors J. Thorn and Glynn James comes Dustfall, a new post-apocalyptic series chronicling one man's challenge and his epic quest to save what remains of humanity.

A boring book with an unlikeable main character

I usually enjoy end of the world type of audible books, but this one featured a particularly unlikeable main character - "Jonah" the new leader of the clan. Jonah made so many dumb decisions that I found myself mentally chastising him. Also, this book was boring and repetitive (how many times can "Jonah" say "Im not my father"). Sadly, I began wishing the book was about his father as he sounded like a more interesting fellow. I listened to the whole thing, waiting for something to happen or for the book to get better. Turns out, nothing happened at the end of the book. Listening to it become a chore I had to get through. Glad its over and I will not be continuing with book 2. The only interesting character was a side story about the girl with the arrows and even she couldn't save the book. Oh, and the reader did a good job! Amazon, can I have the 8 hours of my life back please.

Purely original storyline

An angle on dystopian survival unlike anything I have previously read. Strong original story line, and of course Kevin Pierce nailed it again!

Unique after disaster story

Very good start to a good series. Great characters and they are developed well. The series is like Madd Max combined with Game of Throwns. It shows you how fragile societies and knowledge is. Losing and rediscovering knowledge is something that probably has happened many times in human history. A generation that grows up without the passed down knowledge of human history has to go back to grown zero, and it starts with our most primal needs and desires. Of all the books like this that Keven Pierce has done, this is by far the best. A lot of the books he has done are flooded with religious or political undertones. This is just a great human story.

A whole lot of nothing

This book was boring and slow. It ends with no real resolution and seems mostly like a setup to buy the next book. Jonas' father must be spinning in his grave at how lousy a leader he turned out to be. I am passing on any further books in this series.

Great Original Story

Great story. I like the concept. Things are described well, but not so much that your imagination can’t form its own ideas. It’s got a little adventure, a little love, and a some good guy / bad guy scenarios. I truly enjoyed when the narrative changed to a wolf’s perspective.
I truly enjoyed this one.

No one's slick as Gaston No one's quick as Gaston

If you can get over the fact that one of the main characters is named after a Disney villain then you may like this book lol. I found this book intriguing and enigmatic at the same time as being somewhat frustrating. Even after you finish the first book you’re not exactly sure where the store is going and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing but I’m gonna listen to the next one and see what happens!

Really Different Story

This isn't your typical post apocalypse story. I found it enjoyable overall even though some parts annoyed me when the story didn't go the way I was hoping. There is lots of room for continuing the story in the next books so I'm in for the duration. Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

interesting.

Firstly, I read some of the other lower starred reviews and I dont think they were wholely unjust. this book can be boring at times; the plot spans more than one book and that can be off putting to some. however, unlike some books Ive listened too. this author does well with describing scenery and the problems faced by those forced into change.
I enjoyed many of the characters, and the ending left it open to many different scenarios. the narrator is one of my favorites, though his voice does become monotonous at times.

Intresting

The Narrator is one of the best, The story was interesting mostly but slow. It didn't hold my interest enough to want to read the next book.
