From the very start of this book I have been attached to the characters and in tears over their struggles. 
I started the book with optimism; I love apocalyptic fiction/romance. Within 3 chapters I was in tears and completely hooked, I just couldn't put it down. I liked how the chapters flip flopped between Dani and Zoe. I was easy when I got used to the switch with every chapter. Towards the end there were a few times it didn't automatically switch between the 2 and I had to go back and look to see who I had been reading about in the chapter before; I started paying more attention to the names written on the chapters at that point. I loved both girls but I felt more connected with the Dani and Jason situation. Watching them flirt back and forth then grow distant and go back to flirting was pulling on my heart. I felt her pain. The end was absolutely wonderful and everything I could have asked for, it pulled the book together perfectly. The epilogue on the other hand left me with so many questions and knots in my stomach. I literally screamed when I read the last sentence and realized MG is actually Gabe. It was plagued my thoughts day and night since I finished the book. I am anxiously (not very patiently) waiting for the next book.

Ok cannot give this book more than 3 stars because everyone acts like teenagers instead of adults approaching thirty and in some cases they are in their thirty's! How old is the author? 16? Grown adults don't act this way! The storyline is good kudos to the author's viv...
Ok cannot give this book more than 3 stars because everyone acts like teenagers instead of adults approaching thirty and in some cases they are in their thirty's! How old is the author? 16? Grown adults don't act this way! The storyline is good kudos to the author's vivid imagination but as a fifty four year old woman these people really need to grow up!

    So, I'm not going to lie. This was a re-read for me. I read it last year, I believe, during the time I wasn't blogging due to my lack of a computer. I read it again because I wanted the story fresh in my mind for the second installment, and because I wanted it fresh to be able to write this review. Two birds, one stone.
    I feel like reading it the second time around was better because instead of rushing through to find out what happens next, I was able to appreciate the story even more and pick up on things that maybe I didn't before.

    Because this is a dystopian story, you can expect there to be some common formulaic similarities between this and other dystopian novels. You have the "good guys", trying to survive in a world that no longer resembles the world they lived in just days before. Good guys that are multi-faceted enough to make them believable and endearing.
    But, there's also the "bad guys". The ones that like to take advantage of the current situation and are harmful to our protagonists and others. However, you also have the "collateral damage". In zombie books, that's usually the zombies. The ones that, unluckily, managed to become face-eating monsters. In After the Ending there are no zombies, though. The poor souls in this story are, in my opinion, worse. They're almost scarier.

    What this book has that the others don't? An absolutely fantastic narrative, for one. I loved seeing what was going on with both Dani and Zoe. Seriously, having each author write their own character, was brilliant. Each of the girls stands out to me. At times I felt like I was in a movie watching everything play out. And just when I'd be so devastatingly immersed in Dani's story, I'd get swept away into Zoe's. Both girls were likable, but not perfect. And their friendship is probably my favorite relationship in the series so far... Okay, maybe.

    Also, what this book has is two amazing writers who know how to make a story interesting and informative at the same time. I didn't get bored. Ever. I mean, I was able to read it a second time without skipping over any of it. And the characters. ALL of them were interesting to me. All of them made me want to get to know them a little more. How can so many characters be interesting? I don't know! Ask the Lindseys!

    My review for Into the Fire is coming. I just finished it last night. You'll want to pick up both of these. And then go pray that the next one comes out soon.

    LOVED IT?

    I absolutely love it. I read all 500 and something pages in one night. It completely sucks you in, but in a good way.

    Felt YA instead of NA, but you know what? I STILL loved it. The cliffhanger alone made it worth it. You never know what can happen.
