"One of the most thrilling writers working today. Miss him at your own peril." – Blake Crouch, The Wayward Pines Trilogy


In a post-apocalyptic world, Rachel Wheeler is caught between who she is and who she's becoming. A bizarre mutation has her humanity hanging by a thread, especially when the Zaphead inside her wants to kill her friends and lover.

As the mutant Zapheads form a social order and shape a new world in the wake of catastrophic solar storms, the few remaining humans band together in a struggle for survival. But not everyone shares the same goal: a rogue military unit plans to attack the mutant settlement while Rachel's group seeks a remote, peaceful life beyond their notice. And the Zapheads have a special role for her that could save the human race at the cost of her own identity.

Torn between two possible futures, will Rachel sacrifice herself to prevent the extinction of her kind?

I have found this series to be unrealistic. Devontae for example has been caught and placed under gunpoint how many times? Six? And somehow is still alive. And we still have no clue what the New People 's end plan really is. Finally, the ability of the human survivors to unite and defend themselves is also unrealistically poor.

Continuation of tale, good story line and imagination. Excellent read if you like end of life style sci-fi,but will need to read the other four after books to get the best from the plot. Recommend the After books

This series is addicting. Most of the time I rather wait for the series to be completed. But I can't wait for this one. I have to know who will survive. It has a more realistic feel then most post-apocalyptic series. The characters feel real to me. No super heroes, no one who knows all, just real people who are stuck in a really bad situation. I am so looking forward to the next one.
