Until the End of the World4 books in series
Get lost in Sarah Lyons Fleming’s Until the End of the World—a zombie saga with heart (and brains).
Bornavirus LX is a disease spreading across the world, and it’s turning everyone into zombies. Cassie Forrest figures it’s just her luck that the zombie apocalypse would start up right as she was beginning to get her life together. Now, she and her friends have to race against time to escape Brooklyn before they also become zombies. While driven by zombies, Cassie’s story—about having faith in yourself, finding your strengths, and learning that true love never dies—is powerfully human. Sarah Lyons Fleming brings strong characters to the forefront of her fiction, which makes the Until the End of the World series stand out in a sea of zombie and post-apocalyptic fiction.
Until the End of the World and its follow-up novels, So Long Lollipops, And After, and All the Stars in the Sky, are widely loved by listeners. Until the End of the World is “now up there with my ultimate indie faves," declares fantasy author Katie Hayoz. “That means it gets six stars out of five... I don't care if you don't like zombies. You'll like this book. It's that good."
The series is expertly narrated by Julia Whelan, who has won multiple awards for her audio performances. Most recently, Whelan won the 2019 Audie Award for Best Female Narrator for her work on Tara Westover’s best-selling memoir, Educated. Enthusiastic listeners of Until the End of the World describe her performance as “amazing,” praising her ability to juggle a large cast of characters while keeping the tension mounting. Whelan brings each character to life and gives their voices the kind of heart and emotion that does justice to Fleming's story.
