Description

The first book in the emotionally charged post-apocalyptic series, The Ending.

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began.
We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, "they" thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family...they're all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them--with the rest of the world--but I didn't. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I'd ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O'Connor, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We've all had to start over. I've been stripped of my home, my dreams...all that is me. I'm someone else now--broken and changed. Other survivors' memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won't let them consume me. I can't. My name is Zoe Cartwright, and I survived The Ending.

We've been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing--we'll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we're strong...we're survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

*contains some mature content and language*

  • Mind-numbing

    This plot has the all the subtle and nuanced foreshadowing of a brick being thrown at a window. I might have been able to endure it if not for the hand-wavy use of confusing timelines. I have no idea how this made an iBooks Featured read list when there are so many better apoc books to help readers discover.

    Starts out with a good idea for the apocalypse the rapidly falls so far down into a bottomless crevasse it cannot be retrieved.
  • Not what I expected

    Thank you for this free download. Normally not a fan of the writing style that started this book off, switching between the two main characters entry style via emails; this story had me hooked and only got better as it continued. Post apocalyptic narratives are a favorite of mine and this one developed the characters and their relationships very well, coming out a little more romance than action, not a bad thing.

    I enjoyed this book very much. At times the fast pace meant I couldn't put it down. I loved the way the characters were drawn. The romances got in the way of the SiFi for me, but I can see how others would enjoy them. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

    In After the Ending, Lindsey and Lindsey tell the story of the end of the world through the eyes of two young women, childhood friends, Dani and Zoe. The viewpoint alternates between the women, pulling the reader through the loves, loss, and adventures of two groups of survivors desperately trying to find each other and safety as the world they have always known collapses around them. The engaging characters and down to earth dialogue kept me wanting more all the way to the end. I look forward to starting the second book, Into the Fire.
  • So cheesy I could actually smell it

    I thought I posted this review, turns out I didn't. Anyways it was painfully average. It was filled with so much cliches that I could easily predict what was going to happen. It's like your typical teen romance and if you aren't looking for that then don't come close to this book. And the genre should probably be changed to fantasy if it already isn't. I'm sorry but it was a waste of time.
  • A great Begining ot the End

    I found this book for free and I have as hooked. This is a great series, the characters are well developed and the story, along with many sub-stories, are capitivating! I cannot recommend this series enough. If you like stories of the potential near future, you would like these.
  • Great Series!

    Free books usually don't yield great reading material, yet this first book was surprisingly wonderful. I read it greedily, excited to find there were more in the series, and so reasonably priced. I'm very impressed with the "Lindseys" writing style, the exciting post-apocalyptic world the endearing characters must traverse, without being overtly science fiction. I read all 4 books in a week and have already started recommending them to my friends!
