Overview

America's end is near.

No one knows why, but the great country is under attack.

After being weakened by countless natural disasters, America opens its airspace for aid. But instead, what is left of the devastated west coast finds itself nearly obliterated from above. The key may belong to tests designed by a Pacific Northwest psychologist, Rachel Parker.

Rachel loses the love of her life in a house fire as they escape with their children to the nearby Rocky Mountains following the first round of air raids. In refuge, she faces her husband's best friend, Joshua, but doesn't want to face his ill-harbored feelings or her own inability to face fear.

Her sister, Brenda, escapes the fallen city, and, mistaken for Rachel, is captured. Terrified and alone, Brenda is protected by the enigmatic Daniel even while he helps keep her captive. Through torture and mind games, Brenda discovers information about her sister's work that could spin the free world into a tumultuous frenzy where the unknown is safer than reality.

I couldn't put the book down. Yes it had some miss steps in punctuation but it was a really good book. Every time i started to think ok i'll put it down in a minute it started another disaster or mini victory. I only rated lower because the description of the book did not inform me it was a series and I was left hanging at the end and that isn't my kind of reading.

I thought it was a good read. I really want to read the next two to see the outcome of this situation. It makes you think what would you do if this really happened.

260 pages. Cliff hanger. Part of a series. The next book costs $2.99. The third costs $3.99. I did not check beyond three. The grammer is pretty bad as stated in theother reviews, but the horrific violence and cruelty is even worse. There is no cursing or sex in book one. I doubt I read the others. The mother, Rachel, belives her husband is dead and with in hours has rekindled feelings for her college sweetheart. This really bothered me. This book is convoluted and meandering. The plot never came together enough to make sense. There are definite bad guys, but some of the supossed good guys seem fishy as well, as does Rachel. Even her sister, Brenda does not trust her. When Tom's father popped up out of nowhere, I was completely lost. This is for adults only, not chick lit, very, very violent and graphic. AD

America is coming to an end. The problem is that no one knows why. The country has been hit by one natural disaster after another.  It's decided to open up the air space for help but more just gets destroyed.  It's raining flames, stuff is burning down and no one is safe. After Rachel escapes with her kids she loses her husband. Now she needs to figure out what is going on while dealing with her husband's brother. As well her sister gets captured during a case of mistaken identity.  This was a great story. It moved at such at fast pace that you are not left bored. I listened to this on audio and was happy that I actually enjoyed listening to it. I am normally not and fan of audio books. The speaker was very good and read at a pace that kept me interested in the story. A must read whether it is on audio or paperback!

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. In the End is an amazing tale of what would happen in the end of America. After several natural disasters, the United States open their airspace to allow aid. Unfortunately, instead of aid, the United States receives air attacks. Who is trying to harm them? How will people survive without food, electricity, and clean water? The United States is in complete chaos and no one knows who they can trust. Rachel is courageous during the most difficult time of her life. She has to be brave and strong for her kids. But when her sister is mistaken for her, secrets are revealed that question how well Brenda really knows her sister. What happened to Rachel two years ago? How does this play into what's happening?  I can honestly say I have never read a book quite like this. The entire time, I kept thinking about what i would have done in the same circumstances. I most certainly would have fallen apart. Bonnie Paulson has once again surprised me with her storytelling genius. I was immediately drawn into the story; it kept me intrigued and at the edge of my seat to the very end. I can't wait to read book two to see what happens next!

this is the first in a series of 3. they are not stand alone books. the first was free, but the next two are not. it is well written, keeps your interest, strong characters. very violent, very sad. each of the 3 in the series is less than 200 pages. I would rate as excellent if they were all together in one book. this has become a trend with authors to publish in series and you must read the next to find out what happens. I hate this trend and smells of greed.

Nothing works in this book. It seems to have a story, but can't quite pull it all togethet. The writing varies from adult thoughts and style to junior high school words and phrases.

According to my mother, the story kept her interest and she liked it. She was really frustrated at the end that the story did not end. I read the last chapter and sure enough it was continued into the next book. That is a major pet peeve. I do not care if it is a series of books, One should complete the current story and in the next book start a new one. Will not be purchasing the remaining books of this series. Good thing that we did not buy this one.

Learned To Read Reviews Before Buying With This One Finished “Into The End” by Bonnie Paulson. What a thief! She couldn’t even finish off the story; the reader has to get the next book to find out what happens. I felt robbed at the end. The story was pretty fascinating from the get-go (end of America plot line), and full of action, getting my adrenaline going every few pages, along with the “ugh” and gasp factors. She didn’t preach conspiracy theories although she led me to many; Paulson basically laid out a story about people who I thought, in the beginning, are ordinary folks reacting to major natural disasters (I do question the natural part as they are seismic and seemingly unending), only to find out normal citizens are being captured and/or killed by a yet-to-be-named enemy, comprised of very cold, calculating men in black, and a mini gang or two of youths. This, apparently, all in an attempt to find Rachel, the protagonist, along with taking over America. Seems like a lot going on when they might have only needed to track her cell phone to find her. The reason they want her is only hinted at. I did like the way each chapter was titled with the name of the person whose point of view you would be reading in it. Nothing is wrapped up in this first of the series. Unless you count all the dead bodies. Wait … they were all just left where they fell or were dragged, so none of them were wrapped up either, really. This book took a lot out of me to read. It’s not the type I want to read more of right away so I bemoan the fact that nothing was resolved. I gotta go find something funny and lighthearted to get over this first installment of a cataclysmic series. I don’t wish to feel so let down by a book ending again. I’m not reading any more of this series. I got this one free but paid too much with my time. At least now I know to always check the reviews.

I really enjoyed this book, so much that I bought Book 2 Through the Flames.

The synopsis begins: No one knows why, but America is under attack. After reading the book, you still don't know why. Maybe there is going to be a sequel, but I don't think I'd trust buying it because what if it still doesn't answer that basic plot question? I really like the characters, and if this book didn't end so abruptly I might give it a better rating.

Absolutely the WORST book I've read in years. Poor grammer, weak plot, and terrible characters. An example...the main characters, a family, run to save themselves from an end of the world disaster (not sure what it was since the writer never was clear about it) the father dies before they get out of town and in the next page the mother is thinking about what to fix her kids for lunch in their well stocked survival hideout. Then, after she makes this difficult food decision and reminding her children to compost their leftovers, her ex boyfriend from college shows up and she starts to remember her "feelings" for him. Oh my gosh...kill me now it's the end of the world and her husband just died and she's thinking about green waste and romance. This is beyond riduculous. I could not find one positive thing to say about this book. Advice is not to read. Advice to author take a writting class and listen to the critiques. Jp

This could have been a good book but it was disjointed and character development rushed and unbelievable-just gave up.
