Publisher's Summary

Two sisters, one nightmare.

The last thing they wanted to do was spend time with each other. Now their very survival depends on it.

Forced from their home and thrown into an apocalyptic horror neither could have imagined, they didn’t think things could get any worse. They were wrong.

As they navigate the city to escape to safety, terror lurks for them on every corner. The reanimating virus has taken away everything they loved, but today, they’re going to start fighting back.

Living or dead, everyone is a threat. The rules have changed and for these two, time is running out. What will they do to survive? What will they do for each other? Is being family reason enough to stay together? Now, they’re about to find out.

Great!

This first book is great! Learning these new characters and following the new paths forces you deeper into their characters, almost like you’re there wondering what’s going to happen next! I can’t wait for the next book. Thank you for a wonderful book!

not bad but missing something

Not a bad story for a British zombie book. (I just keep thinking that surviving a zombie apocalypse is much easier when you have guns) The characters were well written and likeable. The story was just missing something. It had a pretty good flow to it, good conversation, and descriptive enough.
The end gets a lot better and gets you hooked to want to get the next book. I will look into getting the next book, as soon as get through my backlog of audio books. Thank you.

A good start to explaining how she got to safe haven

Ren and her sister make the perfect odd couple trying to survive the apocalypse as they make way towards their Grandpa’s. The story is amusing at times but also serious. Great Listen!

solid first entry

good first installment with great narration. I like the dynamic with the sisters, though the back and forth dialog can be a little cheesey at times. that doesn't take away from the good story and good characters, going to continue listening for sure.

great book

a great book, which works really well as audible , the pace of the story moves at a nice speed and is not overload with tons of characters which can get confusing in some audiobooks

Refreshing zompoc

I really enjoyed listening to this book CHRISTOPHER Artinian obviously grew up with sisters as his portrayal was almost spot on for sibling rivalry at the beginning of the book. I am looking forward to the rest of this series.

Great Zombie snark

The story starts hours after the event that sparks the zombie apocalypse, and the sisters are still in shock, Christopher Artinian describes their rivaly was so expertly I couldn't imagine them managing to leave the house together, more likely to kill each other before the zombies even had a chance. Their snarky interaction was hilarious, and their first excursions nail biting, and the reality that zombies are not the only threat.
I can't wait to find out what happens to the girls next, I definately need the next book in the series!

Great first book in series

I have read the series on Kindle and enjoyed so much that I have now tried it on audible. The story line is good and the narrator does a good job of bringing the two sisters to life. So much that I had forgotten after reading the books! I know what’s coming next but am really looking forward to listening to the next audible books!

An exiting new adventure

I enjoyed the book much more than I expected. I feared YA but got so, so much more. If you love the Safehaven books you'll be sure to love this series just as much.

Gripping!

My husband and I loved listening to Kim Bretton's narration of The End of Everything. Kim really brings the characters to life and we couldn't stop listening! We have already downloaded the next in the series and will be listening to more of Kim's narration in the future.
