Publisher's Summary

Surviving the blast is only the beginning....

Dakota Sloane, a tough-as-nails former foster kid, has spent her life running from the past. Logan Garcia, a man haunted by secrets, has only one goal: to drink himself into oblivion.

They're two strangers in a bar - until the news reports nuclear bombs in New York City and Washington, D.C. Fearing Miami may be next, Dakota's first thought is to grab her little sister - still trapped in the system - and get the hell out of Dodge. 

Then the world explodes. As buildings collapse and fires rage, utter chaos erupts. Trapped in the burning city, Logan and Dakota have less than 10 minutes to seek shelter before the lethal cloud of fallout descends. 

But Dakota's sister is still out there. To rescue her, Dakota will need Logan's help, but can she trust him? And how far is she willing to go to save the only family she has left? 

Point of Impact is an apocalyptic survival thriller exploring what could happen if terrorists successfully executed a coordinated nuclear attack on the United States, told from the perspectives of regular people determined to survive.

Action packed!

This first book in Kyla Stone’s Nuclear Dawn series is addicting. She has woven a cast of characters with very real human flaws and failings all trying to survive a nuclear attack on America. This story immediately grabbed my attention and kept me on edge until the final word. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series to see how Dakota and the group fare in post-apocalyptic Miami. Stacey Glemboski's narration make this story come alive!

Great Storytelling

I have listened to Book One 3 times in 4 days. I wanted to squeeze out the last drop before moving on to the Book Two.
All I can say is it ended too soon. I was just getting wrapped up in the characters and they're gone. Should have been twice as long.

Wow!

I loved this book. There was so much action and danger. It had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning all the way to the end. It's scary to think that someday something like this could really happen. It felt so realistic and was written to make me feel like I was in the middle of this nuclear disaster. It is book 1 in a series so it does end in a cliffhanger. I will definitely go on to book 2 and would highly recommend this series to anyone who loves this type of genre. Stacey Glemboski did an excellent job bringing the characters and their emotions to life. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Gripping story, lots of secrets

Our heroine is hiding out from a very bad man and trying to protect her sister. She does not need a terrorist bomb in the middle of the city on top of that.

This is a post-apocalyptic story about a terrorist nuclear bomb. The story is very well written and populated with a cast of well developed characters. You get all the mix of people you would expect from such a story, including the skeptics, the deniers, the know-it-alls and the believers. And our heroine has to deal with them all, doing an amazing job of maintaining her patience.

If I had any complaints about the story, it is that it is almost too real, postulating events we certainly hope never come true. Certainly not a light and cheery novel by any stretch.

But the story is really good and our heroine is a true survivor, making for a very enjoyable time.

The narration is clear and well done as well.

Highly recommended.

Great!

The is a very descriptive and mesmerizing tail of the survivors of a nuclear blast. The characters are vividly described in the story. I enjoyed the story line and facts detailed about the fallout. There is a few different storylines in play. I highly recommend this series.

Nuclear event

I will not summarize this story because it was already given in the description of this book and I do not want to give any of the plot away. The purpose of this review is to give potential readers information to make an informed decision about reading or listening to this book.

What I enjoyed about this book:

• The concept of a nuclear attack that was not from a missle.
• I learned a lot about radiation and how a nuclear bomb works.
• How the novel was told from the viewpoints of the four main characters.

1. Dakota
2. Logan
3. Eden
4. Maddox

• The narrator did an excellent job in differentiating the various characters' voices. I will want to listen to more books narrated by her.

What I did not enjoy:

• The constant graphic description of nuclear damage to people. I would have preferred general descriptions, after the initial description were given.

This novel is part of a series, so there is not an ending, yet.

I was given a free audiobook by the author. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own.

Loved it!

Really enjoyed this book. It was my first by author Kyla Stone and it won't be my last. One thing that stood out to me is the seamless interweaving of different character's POV about what drives the decisions they make regarding their personal circumstances. Even if we don't agree with their choices, it makes the story that much more interesting. Highly recommend!!

This one sure gets your attention!

I must admit that I had no idea what a nuclear attack would look like. If anything, I learnt some new facts.
This first book grabs your attention. I found myself clenching my hands along with the characters and everything they have to endure as they wait for the radiation fallout to end and then to face a new world where no help will be found.
I definitely want to listen to the next book and find out how this group of people survive!
