Publisher's 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.

Enjoyable story easy to listen too

The story is very enjoyable and holds enough details for the listener to imagine they are along side Liam and Lincoln. The readers voice fits the story well and portrays emotions nicely. Worth listening, not overly graphic, acceptable fir older teens.

Very good but short

This is a very good start to this series. That being said I really enjoy box sets because most of these books are just not worth the credit. I really enjoy the PA genre and I love it when it comes from the mind of a woman. The narrator was great as well. The storyline was good and it kept me on my toes but as I said 2 hours and change just doesn’t work for me. I can’t wait to listen to Nuclear Dawn by this author and because it comes in a box set I should really enjoy it...

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.

A different opening than any other EMO series

Be ready for 16 chapters that will not let you go. Each one ends in a way that makes it impossible to set it down. Kyla Stone has created a masterpiece here, and Stacey Glemboski has done it perfect justice with her narration. It would be unthinkable to not follow these characters wherever they may go now. Don't miss it!

good intro to a series

good intro to the series but far too short. very good backdrop for the start of the story kind of a foreshadowing.

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.
