The Horde Without End picked up right where The World With No Future Left off. Nurrin’s brother and boyfriend have gone missing and now Finn and Ren have to team up again to find them. Finn and Ren go all over the communities in search of Collin, but it seems they are three steps behind them. However, with every community they enter Finn begins facing his past and Ren is finding out more and more who the real Finn O’Malley really is. I loved HWE! I read this book in one sitting and I just loved it. Nurrin is becoming tougher due to her time with Finn who is so rude sometimes but I like him anyway. Nurrin I can tell has a long journey ahead of her and a lot of learning to do. She goes back and forth between trusting and not trusting Finn because she knows nothing about him. I love Nurrin for her strength and always because she’s so pure. She tries to be the best person she can be and tries to limit the amount of conflict with Finn despite their differences. Finn has a dark past and more secrets than all the governments in the world. We finally figured out some of who he is and was as. There’s a lot we still don’t know, but I know we’ll find out more soon. Finn is definitely falling for Nurrin despite everything, but he won’t allow himself to like her or get close to her. He comes off as a real a-hole, which he kind of is, but I can tell he gets tired of fighting with the world all the time. There is so much that happens throughout this story and I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t say too much. However I will say that I really enjoy this series even though I HATE zombie stories. Seriously out of all the zombie books I’ve read I’ve liked two and this series is one of them. I absolutely love Nazarea Andrews books with a passion because she has a beautiful twist on everything. I also love how this story is so completely original and has definite sexy scenes that don’t take away from the story. Seriously people if you haven’t read this series yet you should, and this is coming from a person who loathes zombie books so that’s saying something. Go grab this series now!

I hope this is not the end, as it said at the end of this book, since our heroine, Nurrin, is left in a very precarious situation. And I hope the next one comes out soon so I don't have to reread these. The zombies are changing, adapting, congregating in much larger groups, as suggested by the title of this book. This is one of the fairly new categories, "New Adult" because it is for college age instead of 15 year olds. This means there is cursing and sex, both of which I like. So I am hoping to see more of this story and this author. The POV changes by chapter for Nurrin and Finn and I like hearing Finn's POV and his feelings for Nurrin which are very strong, while hers are very confused. She craves him physically but says she hates him, although I am doubting that as the story goes on. He has sworn to protect her and her brother whom they are searching for this whole book. He wants her to trust him but gives very little of himself, a mystery to her and to us. Good story, good author, want to see more of this story and writings by this author.

4.25 Stars! I soared through the first book only to find out the second one wasn’t out yet. Sad face. Thankfully, I only had to wait until mid-July! Unfortunately, with summer vacation and kids home from school, it didn’t fit into my schedule right away. I finally had the chance to sit down and read it this past weekend though, and once again I sailed through it! (After I got over one little bump at the beginning.) I’ll admit, it did start off rough for me. My main complaint about zombie books is unrealistic aspects of the story. While this one overall was good, there was one thing that happened very early on that had me cringing. It was when Nurrin and Finn encounter a group of men in the desert. Many men against Finn, but apparently that’s no issue. It felt so far-fetched that I honestly put the book down for a couple days afterwards. I hate it when people try to turn their characters into invincible beings. They’re not, they’re human. And if you want them to feel real, sometimes they have to get their butts kicked and narrowly escape. I also felt this way later on in the book when Finn fights 5 guys in a row, yet walks away without a scratch on him. That aside, I really liked the book. Once I picked it back up I couldn’t put it down. It’s nice to see a book set in the future, after the zombies have taken over and humanity has tried to rebuild itself. I still love the crazy religious zealots and think it’s such a phenomenal idea. Nurrin and Finn bicker and get on each others nerves, and I can understand how some people wouldn’t like it. To me, however, it’s great. I like characters that are beautifully flawed and hard to like. Who have to learn lessons the hard way and have a tough time trusting. I thought the sexual tension between them was good and realistic. It didn’t fly in at inappropriate times like many zombie books I’ve tried to read. The bomb finally being dropped about WHY Finn was so attracted to Nurrin made it all so much more believable too. I got why he was pulling away from her, why he didn’t think he should get involved. And I was really glad Andrews didn’t fall back on the same old “I’m too bad to be good for you” plot that so many NA writers have adapted. It’s getting old. If you like zombies, romance and some tough characters, then I highly recommend The World without a Future and The Horde without End.

This is the second book in The World Without End Series. Book one (The World Without a Future) was featured for just 99 pennies and I decided to pick it up (by the way it’s still just only $0.99 so pick it up) and when I saw book two come across my email as a tour I had to join up! Nurrin’s brother, Collin, and her boyfriend, Dustin, have gone missing. They’ve left the Haven without a word to anyone. She’s determined to find them and the only person who can help her do that is the one person she despises, Finn O’Malley. I liked Nurrin (Ren) in book one; she’s a hellcat who hates taking orders from anyone. Her brother is the only family she has left and she’d do anything for him. Her relationship with Dustin was comfortable; they’d grown up together and finally hooked up. But as much as I liked her in book one, I loved her in book two! She is kick-ass! From fighting zombies to fighting bands of renegades, she never backs down. She even does plenty of fighting with Finn. She most certainly has her own agenda in all of this and it doesn’t include playing games. She wants to find Collin and Dustin; she needs answers. And Finn…. oh Finn. He’s definitely a closed book type of guy. And, if by some chance, that book is left open and he catches you sneaking a peek, he has no qualms about slamming it shut…not caring if your nose gets smashed. He name alone will either open doors or get them slammed shut in their faces, as he and Nurrin travel to different Havens looking for Collin and Dustin. Nurrin has no idea who Finn is exactly or why his name can evoke such reverie or hatred in people. There isn’t as much action in this book, but I think it’s a great segue from all the action in book one to what promises to be a thrilling conclusion in book three. Nurrin learns a thing or two about Finn (and not everything directly from him and that really sets him off) and even though she isn’t sure how to process all that information, she realizes that he is the only person that she can really trust in all of this. We are introduced to Kendall Stiles, whose father was President of the United States when the apocalypse happened, and now he has stepped up to the role (he took his mother’s maiden name instead of his given surname of Buchman, even though there are a few times when he is referred to as Buchman). At first I liked his character and thought that everything that Finn said about him was out of jealousy…but wow… just wow. Finn was dead on about it all. And with Kendall Stiles worming his way into Nurrin’s life we are left with a cliffhanger! There are some hot and steamy scenes, but no actual sex….so have no fear….this isn’t a zombie book that borders on the erotic. Just some hot and heavy lust going on. Hey, even in the apocalypse people have needs! Overall I really liked this book and can’t wait to read the third book and see how our characters get themselves out of the situation they find themselves in. Horde Teaser avaliable2

Note: This review contains no spoilers First things first...you definitely have to read the first book, The World Without a Future, before reading this one. Reading the first book gives a better understanding of what follows in this second book in the series. The Horde Without End begins shortly after the first book ends. Being a fan of all things zombies, this was definitely a thrilling and exciting read! I was at the "edge of my seat" with the gnawing feeling of danger lurking out there....be it the zombies or the living! Nazarea Andrews has written an action-filled, thrilling, and suspenseful tale of survival in a world where a virus decimated the world's population and turned them into zombies. She has created a world where zombies is a part of every day life and the living has to live the constant threat of infection. In comes our characters, Finn and Nurrin on a mission to find Nurrin's brother. They encounter many dangers be it in the Wide Open and/or in the Havens, they continuously dodge the dangers they face together. Finn and Nurrin challenges each other. The setting is sufficiently descriptive. The characters are well developed with strong personalities....and the chemistry between Finn and Nurrin! Can't forget Nazarea's descriptions of the zombies and the horde(s)...graphic and ominous! And those sounds...creepy! Gave me goosebumps! The Horde Without End is a definite page turner if you enjoy zombie apocalypse type stories! If you enjoy The Walking Dead, World War Z, Dawn of the Dead...even the Resident Evil movies, then this series is absolutely a must-read. Thankfully, the story didn't revolve around a "romance"; although the attraction between Finn and Nurrin is apparent. Definitely a book to finish from beginning to end...with it's shocking ending that begs for book 3!

The Horde Without End picks up where the first book ended, with Finn and Ren’s ongoing journey to find Ren’s brother, Collin and her boyfriend, Dustin. The enigmatic Finn is Collin’s best friend and his two main priorities are keeping Collin and Ren alive. After surviving their arduous trek to obtain medication for Dustin, who was injured during their escape from a zombie invasion of their Safe Haven or home in the first book, they must now face the wide open, zombie-infested terrain to find and reunite with Collin and Dustin…unsure whether the two are still even alive. Hope can be a dangerous thing, but it’s all Ren has to keep moving forward with Finn, a man she both loathes and desires.  If you thought the passion brimming beneath the antagonism between Finn and Ren was intense in the first book, you will find the continued friction and sexual tension between them now has grown so taut that it’s only a matter of time before it all explodes. A central question is whether they trust each other enough to survive the aftermath.  As I discovered in the first book, whereas Ren is fiery, Finn is just as icy, and their characters continue to clash in this second installment even when they try to resist their temptation for each other. Similar to the first book, the pace of the story picks up quickly and is full of mystery and action and danger as complications continue rise and pose obstacles for the two as they get closer to finding Collin and Dustin and try to warn the other Havens about the increasing zombie hordes. It appears the virus that infected them is continuing to mutate and the zombies are adapting and becoming more successful in their attacks.   Both Ren and Finn alternately narrate the story in the first person POV using the present tense, which is commonly found in new adult fiction. Using the present tense gives a sense of immediacy and intensity to the situation and is an effective technique for the plot of this series. Also, readers begin to discover more details about Finn’s secretive past and why he is so reluctant for anyone to get close to him.  I also now realize why it is so important for Finn to have Ren’s trust even though he continues to withhold so much information from her.  While I had a good idea of how the first book would conclude, I was shocked by the climactic cliff-hanger of this book.  The ending left me clamoring for more, and I hope Andrews won’t keep her readers waiting too long.  As a fan of post-apocalyptic zombie fiction, I really enjoyed reading these first two books, and they must be read in sequence to understand the storyline. I especially liked the unusual twist to the typical zombie plot that Andrews adds in the first book, which describes how and why a cult-like group called the Order organizes a “celebratory tribute” every year on the anniversary of the initial outbreak that occurred 20 years prior. This story thread continues in the series since the Order continues to pose a threat to Ren. So far, these first two books in the series are riveting and entertaining from start to finish. Those who plan to start the series should be aware that the books contain graphic violence, sexually explicit scenes, and coarse language. With those caveats in mind, readers who like new adult fiction that juxtaposes the sexy and the dark may like this series as well.

The Horde Without End went by so quickly for me! After that cliffhanger ending in the first book, I was desperate to find out what was going to happen next and read this cover to cover in one sitting, staying up late into the night. I couldn't put it down, not even for sleep.  Ren and Finn set out to find Ren's brother, Collin, and their friend, Dustin. They follow a trail of breadcrumbs Collin has tried to leave for them, causing them to run into not only zombies, but also gangs of people roaming the outside. They have to deal with the people living in the Havens. Not only that, but the zombies are changing and adapting, finding new ways to survive.  My only issue with the story, which is completely based on my own personal tastes and might not necessarily affect other readers, is that Ren insists on asking Finn questions he refuses to answer. This guy is a closed book, and I thought he'd crack by now honestly. I think I'd probably give up. But Ren isn't someone who quits, and I do admire that about her. He does reveal more of himself in this book than in the first, and there's more to him than I imagined.  The chemistry between Ren and Finn is off the charts hot. The further they try to push each other away, the crazier the attraction makes them. I remember thinking in the beginning of the first book that Finn wasn't going to have a big role in this series, but I was wrong and am glad I was wrong! Ren and Finn work together like a team without having to communicate - they can read each other in dangerous situations, which works to their advantage more than once. Together, they seem to be unstoppable.  Between the search for Ren's brother and Dustin, the chemistry between Ren and Finn, and the curiously changing nature of the zombies, I was hooked. The Horde Without End is a terrific follow-up to its predecessor, and I'm excited for the next installment! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I can honestly say that this series is the first zombie series that I have warmed to completely. I've never really been a fan of gnashing teeth and the putrid undead, but Andrews delivers an action-packed thrilling story filled with plenty of heart and emotion. The end of book one was pure torture and I could not wait for this book's release. I loved that there was so much from Finn's perspective because he is such a complex character and I was trying to figure him out the whole way, just as Ren was, but he was so closed off about everything. The thing I did really love about him was his loyalty and determination. I also liked that he wasn't prepared to wrap Ren in cotton wool and coddle her. He pushed her, he needed her to be tough and he made sure she knew how to stand on her own two feet, even if at times it made him seem like an ass. I appreciated that he saw the strength in her. The chemistry between these two characters was off the charts, and the few times it ignited were so freaking HOT my Kindle almost melted. This book was filled with surprises, most surrounding Finn, but one of the biggest one's for me was the Kelsey/Ren association. So many questions fired off in my brain when that hit me and it only added fuel to the inferno of possibilities that lie within this series. Enter Kenny. I will admit he made my skin crawl from the minute he was introduced, and the fact that he was so attracted to Ren only made it worse. I knew there had to be more to it but Andrews does such a brilliant job of leading you down one path only to blindside you with the truth, and each step I took was exhilarating. I was confused and then eventually blown away by the ending. I got whiplash from thinking all was fine one second to realizing that something, or make that EVERYTHING was off and nothing was right. There was a glimmer of hope and then THE END!! Another exciting, nail-biting cliffhanger that will keep me hanging on for dear life until the next book in this series.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ¿¿¿¿¿ Well, book 2 in Nazarea Andrew’s World Without End did not disappoint!  It was phenomenal!  Again, I was gasping for more and needing it desperately!  The characters did not let me down.  As before, Nazarea provided a wonderful, on the edge type story! Nurrin and Finn are still trying to find her brother, Collin.  They have hit road blocks all along the way, as well as infects.  Nurrin is desperately seeking her brother and fears all is lost and she’ll never find him.  However, Finn is keeping her mind off things by annoying the hell out of her.  With all this happening, Nurrin’s feelings for Finn are growing and the feelings that Finn have for her, well…he can’t help himself. The whole story is utterly fabulous.  I appreciated the fact that once again Nazarea spun the passion and romance even in unrelenting circumstances.  The heat is rising between Nurrin and Finn.  Although, fighting their way through the infects and the rising of the cunning Order is a constant struggle to survive.  Somehow, love always finds a way to stick its claws in and never let go.   Will Nurrin finally understand Finn O’Malley?  Will Finn finally decide to trust Nurrin with his secrets?  READ THIS BOOK!  I can’t wait to read the next book, no I need to read the next book to find out what will happen to Nurrin, Finn and the others in the World Without End series!  Excellent story, Nazarea!  Keep it up! ~TSRBR Hero – Finn O’Malley 4.5 stars Heroine – Nurrin Sanders 4.5 stars Steam Level: 4.5 stars  Plot: 4.5 stars  Cliffhanger: Yes!   Would I recommend this book: Yes!  If you want a book filled with apocalyptic disaster, a bit of passion and sexy characters, this is the one for you! Would I read other books by this author: Yes!   ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***
