Publisher's Summary

They thought escaping the bunker was their biggest challenge. They were wrong. 

With little food and no resources, the fragile union is beginning to strain. But there’s something else, too - something lurking in the shadows. 

When the power died, the bunker went black. But it was nothing like the darkness that awaits them now. A new panic is spreading, but this time, few have hope of escaping it. 

This was meant to be a fresh start, a rebirth. Instead, it could be the beginning of the end. 

Will Callie and her friends be among the lucky ones? Or will their newfound freedom be short-lived? 

They’re about to find out.

Rebirth a revolution

I dislike the fact that it ended. Excuse me while I listen again!
I cannot wait for the Burning Tree book 3.
Salvation: Burning Tree book one: if it was a paperback would have a broken binding by now - I loved the book and love even more the song and almost wish it would have been included in this audio version too. I’m still a fan of the strings between sections.
I’m still a fan of the continuous cliff hangers as we wait with anticipation and catch up with other characters.
Greenslade may be my new favorite character- I enjoy the growth from the misanthropic man we met in book 1.
Callie and Zed are pretty cool too.

I find the Donner party twist up the survivors of the other bunker devised super twisted and creepy.

I’m looking forward to finding out where Machete has disappeared to *shivers* talk about a character I don’t want appearing in my dreams.

Marvelously brilliant again, thank you for all your time and effort bringing fabulous characters to life!


This review is voluntarily and honest to the best of my ability having listened to all books in the End of Everything series and Safe Haven Series, to to mention the terrifying Relentless series. Thank you to Tina for giving me a promo copy of the audiobook at my request.

2nd of Series

I totally enjoyed this series, a bit different apocalypse from author. It continues to follow the characters of Callie, Dani, Jiang, Tania, and Phil and 1800 others as they escape the bunker but face many dangers as they break up in groups and some die. Not sure if this is the end or will continue Callie and her group as they want to develop the farm will they succeed and whose family stay together. Hint listen carefully as there are many characters and lots of action. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU

Rebirth

This second book in the Burning Tree series finds the main characters starting to try foraging for food while starting to grow crops. But, of course, our impetuous Callie has other things in mind....finding her brother, Si. In her quest, she becomes allies with a very unlikely person, but maybe this villain has changed?

This series is a fresh take on post-apocalyptic life, but there are still plenty of villains and action to keep any reader engaged from start to finish. Loaded with great characters that are flawed, ruthless and often cruel, the author has made even some of the worst villains a little bit likeable (at least, for now!).

The only thing that makes this wonderful book even better is the amazing talent of the narrator, Kim Bretton. Her performance brings the book to life and her voices are awesome. I also like the inclusion of the music that is used to convey switching between scenes. This helps a lot in audiobooks when you can't "see" that the perspective has changed like you can in the written books.

I can't wait to see what happens next in this wonderful saga. And, Mr. Artinian might just teach you a thing or two along the way!

Greenslade to the rescue...kind of

Rebirth (The Burning Tree, Book Two) by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is an excellent second to the series. Between the story, narration, and fast-paced action, you can’t help but be drawn in. Recommend if you are looking for a new post-apocalyptic series, new to or are a fan of Christopher’s work, looking for something with lots of action, or a story with awesome world building, character development, and narration.

What’s it about? Callie, Susan, Phil, and the remainder of the group continue the quest for survival. They face unforeseen threats arise, struggles occur, friendships are formed, enemies are made, and so much more takes place (I look forward to what I think is going to play out and no, I’m not giving any hints). You might even learn a little bit about farming/survival if you are a novice. This is a story you could easily see taking place in our future.

Kim Bretton once again does a brilliant job. She brings the characters to life and captures the bad guys with perfection.

I recommend this one and I doubt it will disappoint. It will be a re-listen for me. If you are new to Christopher’s work or Kim’s narration, give it a try but make sure to start with the first book of the series.

“Bravery is doing something despite your fears. That’s why it’s brave. Rarely do brave people feel brave; they feel scared to death.”


*I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book! Tina, Christopher, and Kim- sorry for the delay in the review, between the holidays and sickness, it was longer than I wanted. Thank you again for the opportunity! P.S. I still have the song stuck in my head :)

Uniquely terrifying

This is a great story with a Saw vibe but way better! I usually stick to the post-apocalyptic genre but this was a nice change. It kept me interested and in suspense. Admittedly, it did take a chapter or so for it to really suck me into the story since it’s not what I normally listen to. Once I got into it I was HOOKED!!!

Rebirth

Once again we are sucked into the mind of Christopher Artinian and I was enthralled and entranced with this story.
I have listened to this twice and I’m certain I will be listening again in the very near future.
The story and the narration is perfect and you just want .. no need the story to go on.
This is definitely worthy of the 5 star rating

Wow! Second book in this series was even better than the first! Fast paced and full of action from start to finish. Christopher Artinian wrote another hit in my opinion! Kim Bretton is an amazing narrator.

Another captivating book.

Having listened to almost all books from Christoper Artinian this continues his great story telling and character descriptions. Mostly I love the way views on the planet and how we treat it are all woven into the story so as not to lecture but you find yourself sitting back and say he’s right. The music announcing the new chapters I am undecided on but another great job.

Awesome series A magical listening experience

OMG it's infectious once you start this series you are immersed and captivated into this truly mind blowing story. It's so damn believable and you feel as if you are right there living every moment with them. Characters that you instantly love or loathe, keep you suspended & gob smacked by some of their actions.
One minute you are laughing, the next terrified beyond belief. You just never know what is going to happen next it's well paced and full of action. It's both shocking and terrifyingly good. Callie has such an endearing personality & is wise beyond her years.

For the Narrative Its a magical listening experience from the uniquely differentiated characters to the music and effect elements. Absolutely outstanding u rivalled performance.
Its 5 million stars from me.

Rebirth ? Not for me !!!

God I thought that this will be
The ending of the story
How wrong I was!
Who knows how long I’ll have
To wait again for the
Enjoyment.

The perfect imagination and being able to put it all into words in such mastery only
Christopher Artinian I’ve seen is able to do it with such easiness.
Weird, disappointment and happiness that its not over and more is coming, its just the waiting which makes it awful.
And not to forget the beautiful
Voice of Kim Bretton narrating.

Such a perfectly done
masterpiece that is absolutely
recommended For all !!!

Outstanding!

This was an outstanding follow up to Salvation, it flowed seamlessly between books and kept the drama at a fast tempo, it was fast paced and action packed, and had me hooked from the start. The interaction between Callie and Phil was so funny, and enemy gave me chills, I was on the edge of my seat, and devoured it in one sitting. The collaboration between the fantastic writing of Christopher, and Kim 's performance is as amazing as ever and I'm still in awe of The talent Kim shares with her husband in producing the theme song, 5 stars are not enough to convey how much I enjoyed this book. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
