Poor quality

I’ve been trying to contact Audible about the many issues with the recording of this box set, with no success. It would be nice to have an option of reporting the mistakes so it can be corrected. Lots of sentences are repeated and twice an entire chapter was repeated within the next chapter. It was really annoying. I enjoyed the books but not that recording quality. Some one needs to address that. I will be returning the box set simply because I will never listen again because it’s annoying. That’s how often it happens.

Couldn’t get over the bad narration

I wanted to like this series, but it wasn’t as good as her other books. The narration was so bad and so annoying, especially for the first 2 parts, that it took away from the series as a whole.

Terrible narration, not a great book.

Funny thing about the narrator. When she is doing voices for the characters she’s good enough. When she is reading the in between stuff she’s terrible.

About the book.... I’ve listened to better apocalyptic novels. This is not one of them,

A fast moving post apocalypse story

The box set of Dawn of Deception is a great bargain for one credit. The main characters are a mother, her children, and one girl who joined the family after her last surviving parent is killed. The story takes them through harrowing experiences, as they try to survive a number of years after the China Pandemic and other natural disasters.

The action is non stop, with a few respites. The teen age girls and their serious mistakes frequently segue into new challenges which must be met and, hopefully overcome. Other characters are interesting, some are exciting, and a few are pure evil. You will be well entertained by this set of three books in the publishers pack.

A year or two ago I also listened to the author's China Pandemic series, which was also most entertaining, and I recommend these two series of novels highly.

Hard one to get through

I love AR Shaw's works but this audible 3 book series took forever to get through. It just felt like it kept going on and on. I wasn't crazy about the extreme torture so I had to pause for a few months until I got yesterday enough to slug through that. I think maybe I couldn't connect with the narrator, although she's got a great voice and great implexation it just wore me out. as always character development and detail or exceptional. AR Shaw has an gift for that. Most everything else of AR's I've read on Kindle and I enjoyed immensely. I consider her one of my top three post-apocalyptic authors. I'm just not sure what the disconnect is with me and this series.
