Publisher's Summary

When a killer comet hurtles toward Earth, 18-year-old Joanna Murphy is selected to wait out the apocalypse in an underground bunker. She enters cryosleep with her close-knit team, preparing to resettle the planet after the atmosphere clears in 200 years.

Joanna is the only one who wakes up. 

Faced with a bunker full of bones and a blocked exit, Joanna must claw her way to the surface, figure out what happened to her team, and try not to panic - or die. That’s going to be tricky if she’s the only person left in the world.

From the author of The Seabound Chronicles, Steel and Fire, and Empire of Talents comes a story of resilience and optimism at the end of the world.

Loved it!

Wake Me After the Apocalypse is one of those books that makes me mad when real life interrupts my book! I did not want to out this one down! This is my second series by Jordan Rivet. I listened to her Seabound Chronicles first and highly recommend it. This is an entirely different apocalypse scenario, and just as good! In this series, humanity is threatened by a huge comet, much larger then the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. Joanna Murphy is one of the lucky ones picked to try to survive in a 200 year cryosleep in an underground bunker. I can't wait to see how this series plays out! Great narration by Kate Marcin! I lived all of her character voices!

Back in time or FlashForward

I found this book to be very enjoyable. It is smart, witty and has just enough edge to keep you on your seat wondering what will come next. The characters are likeable and I must say are very diverse and represent many different groups of people. That might be my number one take away from this book. I am blind myself as is one of the characters and I must say it was very well written and well performed. There are some twists and turns that will leave you guessing in this one but I enjoyed them all. The landscapes are well developed and leave just enough mystery to evoke your imagination. The performance was very well done and makes use of several different voices, accents and tones throughout the entire story. It is very easy to tell who is speaking as there are several different characters each with their own unique voice. The performer also does great male voices as she is female. I like the closure that the listener receives at the end of this book however, does leave room for optimism for a second book in the series with some unanswered questions. I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of this work.
