She thought it was the end of the world…but it was only the beginning of the end.
It's been three months since Amy escaped New Hope. Since she's seen Baby, or Kay, or Rice. And she's been surviving on her own, like she did before she was "rescued" and taken to what she thought was a safe haven. Then, in the midst of foraging for supplies, her former fellow Guardian's voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear:
Dr. Reynolds has Baby.
Now it's a race against time, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy will have to make her way to Fort Black, a former prison-turned-survivor colony. There she will need to find Ken - Kay's brother - for he holds the key to Baby's survival.
But before she can do any of this, she'll have to endure the darkest places - and people - of the prison. And one small slipup could not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the survival of the people in the After.
Demitria Lunetta has created an utterly compelling conclusion to the story she set forth in In the After. Fans of the Hunger Games trilogy will not be able to stop listening to this audiobook, which is gripping from beginning to end.

Always looking for my next great listen...
I really enjoyed the first book and was happy when I heard there would be a second because the story didn't feel finished. While the sequel seemed to take a different tone than the first, I didn't mind and enjoyed following Amy's journey. That is...until the end! It felt like the author just decided it was time to end the book and abruptly wrapped up the different story lines. There was all of this build up with certain relationships and saving Baby, finding a cure and saving the human race. It was annoying and disappointing to have everything suddenly end like that. Julia Whelan gave a solid performance and I really enjoyed listening to her. I also thought the pacing was great. My only major issue was the writing. I would have preferred it was longer and a more complete story.
I actually liked this book more than the first, In the After. Loved the new characters, great plot development, interesting story. A lot of sequels lack follow through, and this definitely takes you where you want to go. Enjoyed this book immensely, can't wait for the next one.
I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.
The series is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing. Julia Whelan is an astounding narrator. I hope to hear more of her.
Great story. At first I was skeptical of the zombie apocalypse type thing but after a few chapters I was fully engrossed.
Audible Addict. Hopelessly addicted to Audible and find myself listening to books at every chance. The Audible sales feed my addiction!!
Great sequel. Another book that I could not put down. Sad that it's done already. Looking forward to number three.
This book is well written, don't get me wrong...However, some of the plot lines were recurring and obvious. The ending was rushed, too quick and without any real fulfillment for any of the characters. We're just supposed to accept that everything worked itself out??! c'mon, we need a conclusion. Or give us a third book.
Yes/No. If they've read In the After, I'd tell them to read on and complete the series. if someone hadn't read either book, I'd be hesitant to recommend that they start the series due to the abrupt and unrewarding ending.
I am so glad that I chose the second book. It is amazing. Not as good as the first but close. There was a lot of character development and the characters weren't good or bad. They were humans. Kinda. It isn't confusing to read or listen. I recommend it to everybody. Make sure to read In The After aswell
