Where to purchase:

Point of Impact: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller (Nuclear Dawn, Book 1) by Kyla Stone and narrated by Stacey Glemboski will keep you on the edge of your seat! Great world building and wow to the characters! This is my first book by Kyla Stone and it won’t be my last. Recommend if you’re looking for something in the post-apocalyptic genre, something new and will hold your attention, or a shorter listen- it’s well worth the money/credit.

What’s it about? A group of strangers are brought together after a nuke hits. Dakota is trying to get to her sister, Eden, who is at her foster family’s house. Eden is waiting for her sister to rescue her while dealing with the trauma from past abuse. Logan has a dark past and just wants to drink his troubles away. Maddox, a dangerous man from the sister’s past, is hunting them when the nuke hits. The minor characters play an important role despite the story being told from Dakota, Eden, Logan, and Maddox’s point of view. I enjoyed the different point of views and that the author continued moving the story forward with each one versus rehashing the story from each different angle. The characters are well thought out- you get a little of their past and you can’t help but want to know more. The is a series so you won’t get closure with this one. Chances are by the end of the book you will be asking yourself what if this did happen? How would I handle it?

The narrator, Stacey Glemboski, was great. Easy to listen to voice and good pace. I would listen to another book by her.

Overall, I highly recommend especially if you are into the post-apocalyptic genre.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: nuclear bombs- fallout and death from them, foster system problems (abuse), alcoholism, gangs (Latin Kings), guns, violence (what you’d expect if the world fell apart), one racist man (who dies but blames the nuke on Muslims before hand- one slur), hints/thinking about past abuse that sister’s suffered at hands of religious organization (not saying too much due to spoilers but one sister lost her ability to talk).

*I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!
