Overview

After a terrible virus ravages the planet, Carly Daniels, one of the few survivors, hides in her apartment in Juneau trying to survive the best she can with only occasional forays to gather food. With her is Sam, a wolf puppy she found starving on the streets. He becomes her companion and a reason to continue when giving up sometimes seems like the more attractive option. Still dazed with shock and grief, she hopes for the world to go back to normal soon.

She is discovered by Justin, an ex-soldier who is intent on making his way to Florida before the winter sets in. Justin coaxes her out of her hiding place and convinces her to join him on his journey, because a warmer climate will be their best chance against the extremes of Mother Nature.

Together, they begin a perilous journey through a nation laid to waste by the disaster. Challenges abound along the way. The weather, injury, and shortage of supplies all help to slow them down. In time, they discover that they aren't the only survivors. Some are friendly but some have had their minds destroyed by the high fever. Then there are those who simply take what they want, leaving Carly and Justin with no choice but to defend what is theirs.

But their journey is not without joy and love. Together, they face every struggle, including an unplanned pregnancy. Despite the perils of bringing a child into a world of chaos, their baby is a new beginning for themselves and a symbol of hope for the other survivors they find along the way.

This is the story of their journey to find a place to begin a new life, and a home in each other.

Praise for The End of All Things

But this isn't just a story of two people who find love in the unlikeliest people and places. This story is also about survival and the difficult decisions people have to make to ensure it. --Amy, Goodreads

The End of All Things is more about hope and second chances, and I very much enjoyed the tale .... highly recommended for all fans of apocalyptic fiction. It's a well-written book with excellent pace, plot, and best, it has real soul.-- Jade Kerrion, Goodreads

I am not usually fond of The End of the World As We Know It books, but this book was so much more than a post apocalypse story. It contained adventure, mystery, sadness and a truly sweet romance. --Pamela, Goodreads

    This is the first of a series and I must say it¿s a good one.  T

    This is the first of a series and I must say it’s a good one.  The story begins with our protagonist, Carly Daniels, watching the Biker Guy from her window.  Carly is scared, hungry, and unsure what to do now that the world has come to an end.  One of the rare survivors of a hideous Infection that has killed off most of the world’s population, Carly feels alone.  Things change when Carly discovers that Biker Guy is more like a survival wiz and learns to trust him.  




    Justin, aka Biker Guy, is the perfect guy, so to speak.  While he’s damaged, having lived a hard life, he has a sensitive side that draws the reader in.  He and Carly fit together in a way that is almost divine, or as Carly would see it, as fate.  We struggle with them on their journey to find a place to survive, we learn to love and appreciate the art of knowledge, and relish the moment when they finally learn to trust one another and open their hearts to the possibilities of love and family in this new, lawless world.




    The End of All Things was a bit of a slow read for me, but that didn’t take away from the story.  I enjoyed this book and the development of the characters. Lissa did an amazing job bringing the reader into the minds of Carly and Justin, and I look forward to reading her next installment for this series.
