Publisher's Summary

She thought it was the end of the world…but it was only the beginning of the end.

It's been three months since Amy escaped New Hope. Since she's seen Baby, or Kay, or Rice. And she's been surviving on her own, like she did before she was "rescued" and taken to what she thought was a safe haven. Then, in the midst of foraging for supplies, 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, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy will have to make her way to Fort Black, a former prison-turned-survivor colony. There she will need to find Ken - Kay's brother - for he holds the key to Baby's survival.

But before she can do any of this, she'll have to endure the darkest places - and people - of the prison. And one small slipup could not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the survival of the people in the After.

Demitria Lunetta has created an utterly compelling conclusion to the story she set forth in In the After. Fans of the Hunger Games trilogy will not be able to stop listening to this audiobook, which is gripping from beginning to end.

Didn't want the story to end.

About to listen to both books again. Thoroughly enjoyed the story, performance and the narration.

In The End You Will Be Disappointed

I really enjoyed the first book and was happy when I heard there would be a second because the story didn't feel finished. While the sequel seemed to take a different tone than the first, I didn't mind and enjoyed following Amy's journey. That is...until the end! It felt like the author just decided it was time to end the book and abruptly wrapped up the different story lines. There was all of this build up with certain relationships and saving Baby, finding a cure and saving the human race. It was annoying and disappointing to have everything suddenly end like that. Julia Whelan gave a solid performance and I really enjoyed listening to her. I also thought the pacing was great. My only major issue was the writing. I would have preferred it was longer and a more complete story.

Truly Unique Dystopian Tale

The series is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing. Julia Whelan is an astounding narrator. I hope to hear more of her.

Listened to both books in 2 days!

Great story. At first I was skeptical of the zombie apocalypse type thing but after a few chapters I was fully engrossed.

It’s okay

Not great. Yes- tied up a few ends. However- it was this odd up and down throughout. Then... this climatic end where everything magically wrapped itself up and rainbows and unicorns all co-existed.

Annoying main character but compelling story

This sequel to In The After was pretty good. It wasn't excellent, or even as good as the first book, but if you're like me, I needed to find out what happened so I pushed through.

The story itself is compelling. Most of the characters are simple, one dimensional and easily understood. The main character, Amy though, in this book, was absolutely annoying and extremely frustrating. Maybe it was due to her time in the ward, but I found myself feeling like she became just like the people who she called stupid in the first book. I kept finding myself exclaiming throughout the story "Who would do that?!?" as she made more and more irrational and exceptionally stupid choices. Somehow there was always someone to bail her out at the 11th hour, but despite the peril she constantly found herself in, she continued to make the same shortsighted and irrational choices throughout the story. I had to take many breaks to keep from yelling into the void (or on the bus as I listened on my commute).

Besides that issue, the story is fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last moment. And while it is extremely unrealistic to think someone like Amy would actually survive the After with the way she behaved, I still found myself rooting for her and Baby to find their way back to each other in the end.

Just as exciting as the first book

Great sequel. Another book that I could not put down. Sad that it's done already. Looking forward to number three.

Feels like a trilogy...leaves you hanging.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book is well written, don't get me wrong...However, some of the plot lines were recurring and obvious. The ending was rushed, too quick and without any real fulfillment for any of the characters. We're just supposed to accept that everything worked itself out??! c'mon, we need a conclusion. Or give us a third book.

Would you recommend In the End to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes/No. If they've read In the After, I'd tell them to read on and complete the series. if someone hadn't read either book, I'd be hesitant to recommend that they start the series due to the abrupt and unrewarding ending.

No forward movement for 4 hours, repetitive boring

Really liked the first book, so had high hopes for this. Sadly disappointed. I will admit I never actually finished this book and will be returning it to Audible. . Couldn’t get through it. The first half of the book, the main character is trying to save Baby and is in Fort Black looking for someone. But she just just gets attacked by ex cons, violent men, over and over, it gets old pretty quickly. She finally finds a person she is looking for there only to have it come to nothing, so she leaves. Sooo.. what was the point of the first four hours of this book?

The writing style is also different from the first book, shorter chapters the author always tries to end with a revelation or cliff hanger. Very awkward and annoying to listen to.

Good story, well narrated but with some weaknesses

This post apocalyptic story of a teenager is easy to follow and enjoyable. The characters are sympathetic, though the men are slightly one dimensional. It is let down a little by some immaturity in the writing, for example the secondary character being a six year old who behaves and is treated by others like an adult from the beginning. The main character implausibly acquires impressive fighting skills in a short time and benefits from super hero clothing which nobody else seems to question. A protective shield is described as having a range of 100 yards and 100 feet, as if these measurements are the same. However, this is the author's first story and I was prepared to overlook these since the writing style was chatty and appealing, the story compelling and Miss Whelan's narration excellent. I would recommend this two part book.

Amazing

I am so glad that I chose the second book. It is amazing. Not as good as the first but close. There was a lot of character development and the characters weren't good or bad. They were humans. Kinda. It isn't confusing to read or listen. I recommend it to everybody. Make sure to read In The After aswell
