Publisher's Summary

The stark world continues to change. Each passing day twists it further, pushing the surviving humans closer to the brink of extinction. But, for the first time, there is hope.

Clare and Dorran have set their sights on returning home to Winterbourne Hall. It's a daunting journey, but vital. Humanity needs more refuges - safe areas where food can be grown without attracting the attention of the hollow ones - and the old gothic manor is their best bet.

But their home is no longer a sanctuary. It’s become a trap: Carefully crafted for them, lying in wait for their return. By the time they realize just how dangerous Winterbourne has become, it’s already too late.

The fight for survival is far from over.

Soooo Good

This whole series took an unexpected turn. I thought this was going to be a ghost story, but it turned out to be something far better. I rarely give books five stars, but I liked everything about how things finally played out in this one. Great book, great series. And too bad we can't all have a Doran.

The narrator was fantastic. You knew who was speaking and when they were speaking. She made each character its own. She's one of the best voice actors I've come across.

Epic, Must Read, Edge of your seat ride

Narration fantastic.

Loved the series. completely different than what I normally read but have enjoyed Darcy writing over years watching her progress, getting better and better. This series had me on edge of my seat the entire time. Every emotion Claire or Doran felt was so real to me. Their courage, ability to survive, mental and physical strength... FEAR was constant but they could survive together. Inspirational. the story line is not unbelievable in this day and time. Took me year to go thru audible series, perfect companion during Coronavirus times. Made me really think about, if I had to leave house, or be stuck in house, what was necessary to keep, to trade, to live off. Makes you think of everything we all take advantage of daily and expect to always be around. water, hot showers, electricity, fresh food source. Great book.

Loved the ending for them all. Well done.

Loved it!

This was such a great story. The way she developed the characters the scenery and everything about it throughout each book. I loved every minute of it and I'm sad it's over but I was not disappointed in the end. Great job

Black Winter Series

I usually don’t like sci-fi books but I had a buy one get one free deal and Voices in the Snow, which is the first book in the series, was one I chose. I got really interested from the beginning and then followed it through the whole series. I also thought the narrator did an awesome job voicing all of the characters. I recommend this series of books!

Incredible Series!

I love Darcy Coates’ writing and have now listened to all of her books on Audible. I left the Black Winter series for last because I wasn’t sure about it, but I shouldn’t have been hesitant. It was wonderful and very invoking. I could really picture myself in the same situations. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, but if you like horror I think you’ll love it. Give it a try.

Poor outing for the author

By the end of the second book I had no sympathy for the MC and could not fathom how anyone else would respond to her

Sad we're at the end but nicely finished.Well done

There's no place like home.... or is there. Great last instalment of this epic journey. I've so enjoyed it. it's definitely been an exciting Drive.
Such great character development from the off, you're in there with them from page one. I'm not a reviewer who likes to give storylines away but what I will say is it's fast paced, well thought out intelligent writing that keeps you on the brink holding your breath many times.
The narration in this book is stellar. The narrator does a wonderful job of both male and female voices. adding the ring inflection. The accents are spot on and she's not overly dramatic to sell the story. Top notch.
Great listen all round really. can't fault it. XxX

The whole story

I have always watched films and longed for the story at the end, not just they lived happily ever after or not so Darcy 1 million thanks for letting us know how the apocalypse truly ended for Claire and Doran x brilliant as always 😀
