Publisher's Summary

Amid chaos, tyranny rises. Freedom demands a price....

As the United States unravels, the town of Fall Creek, Michigan struggles to survive. Hannah and Liam have endured the brutal winter and ruthless adversaries, but the threat has never been greater.

Enemies from within have wrested control of the town — including what little remains of the food. Isolated, overpowered, and on the verge of starvation, the townspeople are faced with a desperate choice.

To be free, Fall Creek may have to sacrifice more than they ever thought possible.

When the country goes dark, ordinary people find themselves facing the end of the world as they know it. As society collapses before their eyes, they'll have to risk everything to protect their home and the people they love.

From USA Today best-selling Author Kyla Stone comes the fifth installment in the Edge of Collapse series. Featuring flawed, complex characters and fast-paced action adventure, this survival thriller is perfect for fans of Franklin Horton, Tom Abrahams, and Jack Hunt.

Rated PG-13 for mild language and moderate violence.

Everyone needs a Ghost!

This is a great series and keeps getting better with each book. The narrator really brings to life the world and characters that Mrs. Stone has created. Her stories are always fast pace action filled with great characters. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out in the next book. It’s really hard to write a review so you don’t give away anything that happens in the book. This series is awesome and once you read this author then leave your reviews!

Great continuation

Edge of Defiance is a very worthy continuation of the saga of Hannah, Liam, Quinn and the rest of the population of Fall Creek. If you have read the earlier volumes then you have been holding on by your fingernails waiting for this next installment to come out. It was worth the wait.

Great

Kyla Stone continues to captivate her readers with great story telling. I thought the militia went down a little too easy for trained well armed men. And Noah, well he was a disappointment. The characters grow and develop to reveal their true nature. Once you begin this series you can't put it down and when your done, you can't wait for the next book to be released. Stacey Glemboski does a great job as usual as narrator. I recommend this series to everyone who enjoys great story telling and characters that evolve with the story.

Showdown in Fall Creek

If there's anyone thinking of listening to this 5th book in the 'Edge of Collapse' series without prior knowledge of the rest of the series, I strongly advise you to read/listen to the first 4 books before venturing into this one. Kyla Stone does give some rudimentary information about characters and previous situations here, but not enough to let it stand alone, in my opinion. Plus, you may consider my review to be spoiler-y for the series. Tensions are about to boil over between the residents of Fall Creek and Rosamond and the militia. Hannah, Liam, Quinn and the other townspeople prepare to eliminate the despotic Rosamond and her minion militia members. Noah continues to purposely turn a blind eye and deliberately deny the truth of what's happening to his town. Which side will win? Who will survive? There's as much action and suspense here as is typical for a post-apocalyptic story. Kyla Stone has a gift of building tension in her writing. I have to say though, it's all about the character development for me. Here are some thoughts on the characters: Hannah being held captive for 5 years should have broken her but her spirit and determination stay strong. My hand-down favorite post-apocalyptic hero is Liam. A man who previously felt undeserving now accepts the respect and love of an entire town. I fear Quinn has some tough times ahead due to the emotional trauma endured during recent months. She's got a tough exterior but is very vulnerable inside. I can't help but love Milo too. He doesn't let his disease define him. He's got bravery to spare. Noah just makes me sigh and shake my head. Kyla Stone does a wonderful job giving the reader a glimpse into Rosamond's motivations. It makes her become more than a one-dimensional villain. I hope the previous paragraph conveys, in its roundabout way, how great Stone's writing is. She delivers a believable plot with complex characters that draw the reader in completely. I enjoyed the ending of this book too. Stone has a tendency to cliffhanger her endings, but not so with this one. This installment's main storyline is concluded in a nice place. There is a short epilogue that does a good job of setting up what is to come in Book 6. I'm looking forward to it. A riveting performance is provided by the stellar voice of Stacey Glemboski. She helps Stone's characters feel like real-life people. This audiobook was provided to me as a free review copy that I requested. I have written this voluntary review upon listening to it. Highly Recommended.

Defiance

I just can't say enough great things about this series! I have come to love (or hate) the characters as if they are people I actually know. This book is full of action, with plenty of gun battles, psychological twists, betrayals, and pathos. You will cry at times, you will cheer at times and you will feel like throwing your e-reader at times. To me, that is what makes a book a 5 star read. Hannah continues to astound with her strength and her love for her son and daughter. Liam is....well, Liam! What an amazing superhero of a guy! Quinn is a one tough young girl, hurting inside at her losses, full of anger but also full of hope. And, Ghost? Well, what can you say about a wonderful Great Pyrenees dog that is ready to protect his family at all costs? The author has created an amazing cast of villains, especially Rosamund Sinclair. If it were possible for me to reach through my Kindle and kill that woman with my bare hands, I would have done it! She has to be one of the most villainous of villains that I have read in a long time! The book does end on a bit of cliffhanger since some of the bad guys survive and I can't wait to see what happens next! The writing is superb, the action fast-paced, but the author has also written a wonderfully emotional book as well. The narrator is perfect and her performance truly adds a whole other dimension to the book. I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book by the author and chose to review it.

Another great installent, wonderfully narrated!

Tensions are building to a peak in Fall Creek/Winter Haven. The people are marshaling together against the militia and it’s just a matter of time before things erupt!
