The thrilling conclusion to the survival story In the After, set in a near future where Earth has been overrun by vicious, predatory creatures.

It's been three months since Amy escaped New Hope, and she's been surviving on her own, like she did in the After. Then one day, her former fellow Guardian's voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear: Dr. Reynolds has Baby. Now it's a race against time. In order to save Baby, Amy must make her way to Fort Black, a prison turned survivor colony, where she will need to find Ken, Kay's brother. He alone holds the key to Baby's survival.

But one small slipup could set off a downward spiral that would not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the very survival of the people in the After.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good book I absolutely loved In the After. It had a great action and the relationship between Amy and Baby was unique and really added to the story. In The End picks up a few months after In The After with Amy hiding just a few miles outside Fort Black. I had a few issues with In The End, but overall I still really enjoyed it. You are introduced to new characters at Fort Black. Amy is still resourceful and strong. She quickly makes allies and enemies within seconds of stepping inside Fort Black. You quickly find out that Fort Black used to be a prison. When reading that flashes of the Walking Dead honestly came to mind. But a prison would be an easy place to defend from monsters. One of the first people Amy meets is Jacks. Jacks offers to "claim" Amy as his in order to protect her. While the whole claiming women is certainly disgusting I can see how it would happen in a scenario with the majority of the population being men. Jacks and Amy's relationship I honestly liked a lot better than Rice's. Jacks wasn't perfect. He was scared and weak at times. He tried to protect Amy the best he could even when she did something stupid. That brings me to what I didn't like about this book. Amy's judgment and actions. Sometimes I was really frustrated with Amy. She would go off on her own even when she knew a serial rapist/murderer wanted her dead or to use her. I got that she is strong, but Tank is a massive guy who almost killed her several times. I just wanted to yell at her to stop being stupid and stay where it was safe. The ending wrapped the series up nicely. It wasn't a perfect happily ever after, but realistic and fit with the series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not particularly impressed While it didn't suffer from a fatal case of Multiple Personality Disorder to the extent that the first book did, there was still something about the way it couldn't decide on a bad guy or a solid tone that rubbed me the wrong way. It was also a bit ridiculous, from scientists who suddenly turn out to have massive God-complexes and rant maniacally about starting the apocalypse to other scientists who randomly kill everyone. It was like Lunetta was trying to make the bad guys bad so hard, they stopped making any sense as characters. Throw in some convenient solutions, gratuitous death and violence, and quick resolutions, and the whole thing was a bit of a mess. It does get props for some good girl friendships and a very determined heroine, but other than that, a big ol' eh.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it In the End is one of those reads that will remind you how grateful you are to be living in reality instead of their fictional world. This world is horrid. Full of people who will kill you for your food and supplies. And most importantly the people who you once knew can be turned into monsters that kill you. The biggest truth about the Floraes was revealed in the first book, but we get more of an explanation in the sequel. This was great read full of action and I'm always up for those. I love how fierce and strong Amy is. She protects Jacks from harm when he's the scared one. She's been out in the wild for so long protecting Baby that she knows how to take care of herself and others on instinct. Jack didn't and he was scared. His fear made him even more vulnerable. Jacks has a good heart even though I didn't trust him at first, I grew to like him as well. The prison part deftly reminded me of The Walking Dead. Maybe prisons will be the haven needed in post-apocalyptic worlds because they're used frequently and often in fictional stories like this one. The pacing and dialogue were standard and I just have to say that Amy and her synth-suit were kick ass. If she didn't have one, she wouldn't be standing upright at all. I kind of missed Baby a lot and finding out what happened to her made me sad. Overall, this is a great dualogy and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a apocalyptic read..A smart apocalyptic read.
