Impact Winter


“They came after the impact and the firestorms. When the sun went dark. Like they’d been there all along. Just waiting.”
From executive producers of The Walking Dead and Travis Beacham, the writer of Pacific Rim, comes a heart-stopping Audible Original featuring a brilliant British cast. It’s the near future and seven years since a comet hit the earth and blotted out the sun. The world is a dark, frozen landscape. And then, beastly creatures emerge and take over. Can they really be vampires?
In the British countryside, a band of survivors forms a resistance in the fallout shelter of a medieval castle. Darcy is a battle-tested vampire hunter who is at the front line leading the charge to save humanity. Meanwhile, her younger sister Hope wants life to return normal so she can go above ground and know what it’s like to live again. And she just might be willing to risk it all.
A story of apocalypse, horror, and adventure, Impact Winter is a wholly original new saga created just for Audible with immersive 3D audio that dares you to pop in your earbuds and listen in the dark. Venture into an eternally sunless world of swords and crossbows; primal hunters and shape-shifters; leaders and lovers. Hear how a brave few fight to survive the impact winter.
Starring Liam Cunningham as Jepson Belgrave, Holliday Grainger as Darcy, Esme Creed-Miles as Hope, David Gyasi as Rook, Bella Ramsey as Whisper and Indira Varma as Kallistrata, Himesh Patel as Felix. 
Written, directed and executive produced by Travis Beacham. Also Executive Produced by Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Rick Jacobs, Bryan Furst, Sean Furst and Alexandra August of Skybound Entertainment, Bard Dorros and Zack Hayden of Anonymous Content and Cliff Roberts. Executive producer for Audible was Matt Patterson.
Associate Producer: Wes Mazda

    Incredible show
    Audible, please do more like this. It reads like a novel and reminds me why I love gothic literature again. The music, sound, and acting are all on point. Six stars if I could. It maintains the delicate balance between being a satisfying story that ties up by the end while still leaving room for future adventures.
  • KatherSV
    Best yet
    Just finished the last episode and WOW! Best fictional podcast I’ve heard yet, ended up binging the whole thing. Need more asap!
  • Babshageg
    Haven’t heard an audio podcast of this magnitude in a long while, 5 stars
  • Charles Floyd
    Impact Winter
    Amazing Show… absolutely great!
  • SGF122
    This show was EPIC! If you like vampires, this is the show for you! I’m sad it’s over & will be impatiently waiting for season 2 (also, PLS make season 2!!!) I need more of this! Totally recommend!
  • Ajbuda
    This. Was. Awesome.
    I can’t wait for the next installments. Great voice acting and sound display! Nothing sounded forced. It was absolutely so refreshing to have a female protagonist that isn’t obsessed with being woke, and provides a very strong and moral female presence without needing to be toxic at the same time. I have listened to about 20 of these fictional podcasts, and this even beats the White Vault for me. Which is also absolutely amazing for anyone unaware.
  • the nightlight
    Loved it
    I would love to see a second book
  • CowboyRicky1987

  • lissa9818
    Listening to a movie
    I loved this! Vampires and the Apocalypse are two of my favorite story tropes but I never imaged I’d be so invested in these characters. This podcast features Some of the best audio acting I’ve ever heard! The women in this Show blew me away with their vocal ranges and the emotions they were able to communicate!
  • West Virginia Dirty
    I like it ALOT
    New to audio books I really enjoyed the quality and production of this one. Had to download all the stories right away to hear what happens next. Can’t wait for next chapter!
  • skullpunch
    I loved it
    It’s been awhile since I found a new podcast obsession. I cannot wait for season 2. Please come out soon!😍
  • jaevans52
    This is so good
    I can’t find anything similar in audible after paying a sub tho :(.
  • BJVines
    Loved it!
    This is the first time I’ve ever listened to entire podcast. I’ve never found one that would hold my interest over watching television. Surprisingly, this one got me. I usually reach for the remote in the mornings, instead I reached for my iPad to tune in to Impact Winter. I’m no critic of what’s good or not so for me it was just a great show. Listening to all the background sounds, trying to imagine the faces of the characters, seeing swords wielding in mind, and the sound of fangs dropping is fantastic. I can’t wait for season 2!!
  • Sloan god
    Nothing on audio form has made me listen to each chapter as quickly.
  • Comander Tank Hunter
    I neeeeeeed it!!!!!!!
    I can’t wait for season two this podcast is like a drug I am addicted to and I need more!! I love it! Applause to all that worked to make this beautiful work of art. This story is like reversed Buffy the Vampire Slayer but it is better than it sounds.
  • TrueProGamer
    Best podcast I’ve listen to
    The story is amazing. The voice acting is amazing. Everything is just amazing. I really hope they make a season 2
  • Carrreb
    Wonderfully written and performed!
    I must say this podcast had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. They really dug into the characters and gave you real insight to them. The story was written just like a book, rather than a movie—which to me is so much better!
  • KlausMika1000
    You will not regret listening! The audio is top notch, the voice acting is superb, even the action scenes are captivating! Season 2 ASAP please because this one is a gem.
  • |moonboy|
    Best Podcast Everrrrr
    One of my favorite fiction podcast i’ve ever heard. Can’t wait for season 2!!!!!
  • Boppy150
    Excellence on Display
    This is an amazingly well written, well performed, hang on the edge of your seat audio drama. One of the best audio dramas I’ve heard in some time and I’ve listened to many. I couldn’t stop listening and ran through it in a day! I was transported. I especially enjoyed hearing some familiar voices that I’ve only ever seen on onscreen. Highly recommend.
  • ModernAmericanKnight
    The best audio fiction I’ve heard in quite awhile. Great story and fantastic actors. Not a single weak character. Solid performances throughout. The audio experience is tight and crisp the mix is just nice on the ears sucking you in and then blowing you away.
  • Raffeekey
    Need more shows like this
    I have been searching for audible stories of horror like this. Great show, will keep you listening.
  • Kik&D
    So good! Burned through the whole season over the weekend.
    Best I’ve heard thus far
    Now THAT’S how you do a story podcast. Top notch writing, acting, production. Believable characters; not afraid of a pregnant pause or an eerie silence; narrative flows smoothly. Strong female characters without a lecture, no woke-ness, no “message”, just a good story. I’m not even into the vampire genre and I liked it. I hope network notes don’t ruin Season 2. Kudos to all involved
  • happysasquatch
    Incredible show
    One of my favorite fiction podcasts I’ve ever listened to. Please make a season 2!
  • TrayParks
    Amazing but..
    As amazing as this show is.. why did you have the finale be 54 minutes long yet the actual show was only 24 minutes with 30 minutes of “credits?” Why not actually have her do what needs to be done in the last 30 minutes? It was great but the way it ended was very disappointing in my opinion
  • Saucey1981
    I’m in!!
    I’m totally in. 2 episodes in and I can’t wait for more. Great job all around.
  • Podverse
    Engrossing. Brilliant.
    I listen to many fiction pods. I am not a fan of the vampire genre, but this is amongst the best. Rich, detailed characters, complex plots and a satisfying arc of story. Worth taking a listen.
  • 910524moniqueashley
    This story has kept me wanting more and more!
  • asuncionshija
    Was blown away!
    I wasn't really expecting much, but I was totally blown away. Great story, excellent acting, sound (production) quality. Everything was spot on. Just sweet enough to awww a little bit, just gory enough to engage, just enough mystery and more story than it first appeared to really intrigue. LOVED IT.
  • MatthewTheFirst
    So damned good
    The writing, production quality, and acting are as good as it gets. If audible produces more shows like this I would absolutely pay for it
  • Chromefactory12
    Great story-creepy and fascinating
    Really enjoyed listening to this podcast. Such an interesting take on vampire mythology. Sure hope there is a second season in the works-I want to find out more about this world. My only request to add a tad more narration to any fights. Well done!
  • ck do ufk
    What a great podcast, I only wish it did not end. Wow just wow
  • Ghgggbbvvv
    Absolutely amazing sound work
    The amount of times I looked over my shoulder because I swore a rabid vampire was about to bite my neck from behind! The 3D sound is super immersive, compliments and enhances the amazing story telling and sound design well!
  • D gamer yt
    Can’t just end it like that?!?
    Bro this is the best podcast I’ve heard in a long time we need more please audible we need more seasons/episode's!!
    Sooo good!!
    I’m only 3 episodes in but I’m absolutely hooked! This is my first fiction or story based podcast/ show I’ve listened to but it’s fantastic in that you feel you’re right there with the characters and share their tension. I Highly recommend this show!
  • AmazingListen
    I just finished bingeing this for the second time. Amazing and I’m hoping that they’ll be a second season. This was GREAT 🧛‍♀️
  • AshleighK
    Can’t Stop Binging!
    This is so good, you guys! Very picturesque with all sorts soundscapes to emphasize the story. I could *really* visualize this, especially the parts where the narrator is journaling and they’ve added the sound of a pencil moving across paper, or the flicker of a flame… you know, that sound? No one, and I mean NO ONE has done such a great job with creating layered and complex soundscapes with believable voice actors since Christof Laputka’s Leviathan Chronicles. Do yourself a favor and download this entire series!
  • cleverBill
    Just an amazing visual story
  • Evonne James
    More please turn it into a Netflix series
  • roy936482917
    One of the best fiction podcasts I’ve listened to - I need more!!!
    Best Fiction Pod
    This was easily the best fiction podcast I’ve ever heard. It’s dark. Emotional. Great dialogue… You fight for the characters. I never write reviews but I had to for this show.

    Can’t get enough.
    Having started bingeing podcast storytelling for past 6 months, this is now one of my absolute favorites! I hope the trend grows and more shows like this get published.
  • runeverywhere
    Oh my gosh
    One of the BEST audio dramas I ever listened to. I loved it after the first 5 minutes. I may or may not have listened to it twice. I wish there would be more!
  • mahshwz
    This takes the vampire story to a new level. You will enter into another world and won’t want to leave. Loved the strong women characters, great acting, wonderful sound production. Can’t wait to listen to the next season. Bravo!
