Summary

"With every light comes a shadow." (Dustfall)

When Gaston splits the tribe and convinces Seren to join him, Jonah must lead the remaining Elk despite the constant threats on the road to Eliz. But all is not what it seems in the land of the winter ruins. Invaders from the north have secretly traveled south as well, forcing Jonah to risk everything to save his clan and his family.

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

As good as the first

Just as good as the first although got a little lost and confused with the number of new clans and leader along with their subordinates.

Classic (To Be)

I really loved this series, when I read post-apocalyptic I don't want to know the rules, the author has to guide me to suspend my reality, the authors did that brilliantly. I can listen to each of the books, over and over and hear something new. The author did well in getting me to know the unique personalities of the characters, even though there are many of them. Kevin Pierce (narrator) made the difference too, he seemed to enjoy the book, that he really "got into" it. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because there were too few description of "the cart", the description is vague, the camps are not well described, scenes of camp life, what did Seren learn and see on her stops. I was also pleased at the chapters start and stops, it made it easy for me to find my favs and just focus on them. I have sense purchased the eBooks on Kindle (Book 5 not yet on Audible, when it becomes available I will select it). While different story lines, I put this series at the level of "The Road", "Earth Abides" and "After It Happened"

Compelling!

This book is just as compelling as book one.
I have already downloaded books three and four.
I am fascinated by the sub-story as seen through the eyes of the wolves.
Kevin Pierce does another excellent job as narrator!

Adventure Into a brutal life.

The characters and story are great, however the segues left me a little disoriented at times, otherwise a really good story!

Horizon Zero Dawn vibes

Captivating

I could not stop listening! the characters are well written and the drama draws you in and keeps you hanging on. A bit tedious in spots but a necessary evil all books struggle with. All in all a very good listen. im very happy with the decision to purchase.

Worth a listen

Character development is slower than I like but eventually gets it done and there are many tangents in this story but all in all its well written and I will listen to the whole series. Narrator is a little dry but they can't all be R.C. Bray.
