Publisher's Summary

In a world where there are no rules, there is no greater hero than a 17-year-old girl.

Life at the fortified town of Sanctuary is calm. The people, with their fearless leader at the helm, have created a haven where they can live out their lives in peace and safety.

But it hasn’t always been this way. There were battles and losses along the way, and victory usually came at a price.

With the younger generation coming into their own, it’s time for Leah to pass on all she has learned over the years. Time to tell the stories of how the world became the way it is...starting with the highwaymen of Andorra.

Dance with the one that brought you

Get R.C.Bray back. This was hard to listen to. I liked the story, but the narrator couldn't do it justice.

I am afraid after listening To RC Bray read the 1st 6 books the narrator failed to Capture the true essence of Leah's personality Also the narrator does not convey the male voices adequately

I couldn't get over the narrating, needed Bray

The whole "After it Happened" series has been fantastic but this one took a big hit with the performance. There were many parts in which Kate reading was fine to good in the performance but the male voices were not at all to my liking. Hearing beloved characters like Dan, Mitch, Neil and others sound the way she made them sound was jarring to me and just when i was pleasantly "into" the story Dan would say something and it was just, well.... not good. I get that doing voices of characters of the opposite sex is tough and its easy to over do them to the point where its silly, that is one big area to me in which RC Bray shines.
I liked the story, and there was no way that i wasn't going to get the book after loving the first 6 - i had to do it and i am still glad i did! BUT i would LOVE to hear it re-done by Bray. In a way i feel it very hard to judge the story and overall rating because of this. I know he is always busy and had to deal with pneumonia which delayed his work and maybe that's why Devon C Ford went with this alternate narrator or maybe he went with a woman because this is "Leah's" story, i dunno.

Poor narrator.

Decent story but not as good as the previous ones. The female English narrator was horrendous. She made the story sound like a children’s lullaby story rather than a post apocalyptic action sci-fi adventure. Her voice impressions of different characters were the worst I’ve ever heard. It was simply painful to listen to and took much away from the book.

Finally, we get to hear from Leah's point of view!

Right away, you'll see that we have a new narrator. Don't walk away from the series yet. She's no RC Bray, but Kate Reading grew into each of the voices she portrayed and I was always able to differentiate the characters from each other. In short, she has a gift, she drew me into the story, just like RC.

Next, we are introduced to some new characters, Lucien is my favorite character. Who doesn't love hearing a male French accent, ooh, la, la! Then there's Raffi (spelling??) and Mateo who add some definite character to Sanctuary. Then our old standbys, Dan, Mitch and Neil (my personal favorite) are still on display in this book.

There's plenty of action but there's downtime, too. It's fun to listen to Leah finish the growing up process. I am so glad that I was one of the first to get to listen to Andorra, The Leah Chronicles. I pre-ordered it, then downloaded it on to my phone in the a.m. and I just finished the book. Worth every penny!

The start of the new series!

If you have listened to the original series and were a fan like the rest of us, then you’ll love this continuation! Excited to see what’s in store for the next chronicles. It feels like a whole new series but you have come to know all these characters over there years of struggle and victory!

If you have not read/listened to the first 6 books or at least most of them, then you will miss out on the small references made about other characters from the other books and the connection/relationship with these characters will not be as strong. But yes, you can listen to this book first and jump back to the beginning of the series later. Narrator is awesome in this book!

Good but had to adjust to the change...

I thought the story was great and I think Reading did a good job narrating, however I had one issue with it. The attitude and personality of Leah didn’t come across as the same girl in the other 6 books. Dan seemed like a bumbling oaf when the narrator portrayed him as well.
It just seemed that maybe Reading didn’t listen to the other books before performing this one. Not enough of an issue to turn me away but it did give some disappointment.

Fanfiction?

The performance and perspective shift is absolutely fantastic, however the story itself isn't in line with the original character designs making it feel more like fanfiction.
