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.

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.

Perfect for young girls that love the zombie genre

What other book might you compare this book to and why?
Hmm, maybe Surviving the Evacuation series. I'm in the US, so I'm not use to listening to apocalyptic books based anywhere else. So I'm finding this similar to Surviving the Evacuation because of location.

Who was your overall favorite character and why?
Wren. She's 15, extremely smart and an athlete.

Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?
No one in particular. She did a fantastic job with all the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and I practically did. I started it late at night, got all through it except the last hour, then finished that the next morning.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, unless they hate Young Adult. Having said that, I didn't realize it was a YA until after I started listening, which I usually dislike any and all YA, but I really enjoyed this one!

What did you love best about the book?
That Wren was so capable. I just loved her!

Which scene was your favorite?
When Wren whips that snot out of that older boy.

Which character did you like least? And why?
I've already forgotten his name, but the guy introduced at the end. He's definitely up to no good!

Any additional comments?
The author must have teenage daughters of his own because he nailed the teenage girl attitude perfectly! You've got a 15 year old that's smart, athletic and common sense bursting from the seams. Then you've got her 17 year old sister that's into fashion, cell phones, boys, she even puts on makeup after the zombie outbreak. Put these 2 girls together and they'll fight like cats and dogs. But it was so sweet to watch them bond as Robyn matured and accepted that her little sister was way better at all of this than her.

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!

A great find for all aged zombie readers

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more. I normally follow a book geared more towards adult content, however this showed that if a story is really good it will draw you in no matter your age. This is a survival story that you can find relate to regarding the family dynamics. You really learn what strength and determination you have when pushed to it. Great story and I can't wait to get into book 2.

Great Read

The End of Everything (The End of Everything #1) was a good read by Christopher Artinian. Two sisters are living a nightmare. Now their survival depends on them spending time together and it's the last thing they want. They are in an apocalyptic horror that they could've never imagined. Terror lurks at every corner as they navigate the city to find safety. I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to read more but the author.

Great book, a must for apocalypse fans!

A great book.

I really enjoyed the story once I got used to the British narrator. I loved how the characters grew from the start. What they experience and how they handle these experiences also seems very realistic, this is what I think the average person that survives something like a zombie apocalypse will have to go through to survive.

All in all a great plot with a great narrator.

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.
