Great stories by some great authors!

Any additional comments?

Let me throw in a little disclaimer.

I authored the final story in this Anthology, so I will not be commenting on that. However, since I had not read any of the other stories until this release, I feel it is fair for me to review the anthology as a whole.

Other than Chris Philbrook and James Dean, this was the first time I have read (listened to) any of the other Authors. They did such a fantastic job throwing their own spin into the AUD series. I really enjoyed them and it felt like an expansion of an already well developed world.

If you haven’t read the AUD series, you probably won’t understand some parts of the stories (like why people have weird dreams). I’m counting on most people have, though. Some of the stories indirectly affected the actual AUD storyline, while others were their own little spin somewhere else, affecting people you have never met.

One specific story I’d like to point out is Chris’s story “Only a few miles to home”. As a veteran, it is nice to see someone shed some light on PTSD. Episodes can be set off by one thing, or a conglomerate of things. Thank you, Chris, for that story.

James Foster did an outstanding job as usual. I was super giddy when he did Redemption and nailed the African accent. It was awesome!

Try it. Enjoy it. And check out the authors that participated in this fantastic Anthology!

What a great compilation!

Another phenomenal book that tells more stories that take place at the same time as Adrian's. Some of these directly affect him, while others simply stand alone. Although each story in itself is great, I would highly recommend reading the complete AUD series first.

An essential side story collection for fans of AUD

This book was great! It contained so much information that elaborated on the original AUD stories and hopefully future AUD stories. Different scenarios and characters. Very refreshing! A must read for anyone who has finished the first 8 books of Adrians Undead Diary. Book 9 is out now and I am listening to it next.

fave of the series so far

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

First of all this is my favorite narrator! While I liked the first in this series I truly enjoyed this one. There are some great authors included with riveting stories. I hope to hear more from them and this narrator. I highly recommend reading the AUD book series before these!

A Must Have Anthology of AUD's Multiverse

Only the Light We Make was steeped with rich storytelling in the vein of AUD. I enjoyed every single story in the collection. There were several that I could say were my favorites. Of my top three were "Redemtion", "The Shadow", and "Only a Few Miles From Home." ALL the authors outdid themselves adding their own unique perspective to Adrian's world. It's like an AUD multiverse. Each story complimented the others.

This was a fantastic listen and I would highly recommend it. I haven't listened to all the AUD stories and found this easy to follow. There's an excellent human element in these stories unlike many others in this genre. I'd say if you're new to Chris Philbrook or any of the other authors or Adrian's Undead Diary Series, then pick this one up and get started.

James Foster is bar none one of the best voice actors there is. He gives each of these stories their own individual feel while staying in the 'verse of AUD. His performance was outstanding, especially in Redemtion. Loved it!

Simply Great

What made the experience of listening to Only the Light We Make the most enjoyable?

Different authors different views of the AUD world or rather what else was going on during AUD.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Only the Light We Make?

Zomie Fix, Miles from Home and Redemption really stood out to me for different reasons. Zombie Fix for it's cleverness and to me originality, Miles from Home for it's emotional intensity and Redemption because it is why i love post apocalyptic books and movies the unlikely imperfect flawed hero and the redemption of humanity.

What does James Foster bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

When I think AUD it has to be James Foster. He brings the world and the characters to life

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

I have purchased Unhappy Endings but since things got a bit screwy migrating from audible.com to audible.com.au i can't redownload it. So i will have to purchase it again when i can.
