Summary

When humanity faces an undead nightmare, one man’s party turns into a race to survive. 

Logan has always taken things a little too seriously. So when his New Year's Eve attempt to unwind descends into chaos, he's the first to realize it's no joke. After Logan and his friends miss the evacuation transport, he's given a choice: lead the group to safety or watch all of his friends come back from the dead....

When Logan discovers the military and government have no interest in saving them, making it to sanctuary alive may be their only hope. And after he learns his party of survivors might hold the key to a cure, the fate of humanity rests on his shoulders. But saving his species could mean sacrificing himself....

Can Logan stave off the end of the world, or will one wrong decision doom humankind? 

In the End is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic zombie thriller. If you like nightmarish settings, reluctant heroes, and action-packed adventures, then you’ll love GJ Stevens’ spine-chilling novel.

Yippee! A new British Post Apocalyptic Series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this first Post Apocalyptic via Audible from GJ Stevens. Great plot that builds in excitement that led a binge listen!
Well narrated by Jim Harbourne - if this is his first narration on Audible, it certainly won’t be his last! Great character differentiation - female characters and various regional accents were very well done.
I hope there will be many more in this series.

Fantastic Listen!

Refreshing, fast paced, well written and believable! Loved this listen From start to finish. I found myself getting really invested in the characters also. I love the genre but find myself listening to a lot of American Authors as they tend to have an edge ... not this time. And the narration was well pretty excellent... I normally find myself irritated by the boring hum drum of the British voice. Especially when they try to be ever so... but this was run of the mill, ordinary voice that I didn't want to stuff my ears up and rock in a corner in pain over. most excellent! love love loved it!

Very very good

A score for the Brits here! Not many British zombie apocalypse horror writers and I thoroughly enjoyed this audible book. Fast paced and quite chilling at times and very well narrated by Jim Harbourne. Looking forward to a second book 👍

The end

Narrators voice slow and droning kept making me nod off. Never actually listened to the story. I was asleep in no time!

slow start but gets engaging

lays down groundwork for followon, different zombies, gov't conspiracy, attrition. multiviewpoint. characters need a bit more fleshing out

A must for any ZomPac fan

Damn! I was totally taken with the beginning of a, hopefully, long series. Set in England it details, quite well of a man, slightly adventurous but anything but the action hero that immediately steps in to take charge. Logan is an ordinary man out with his circle of friends intending to celebrate the New Year in a rent cottage in Cornwall.
He and ten friends were celebrating when the lights went out.
Logan is inadverdantly thrust into role of leadership even though he is just as lost as everyone else. After their first encounter with the infected leaves them divided, most refuse to believe until it is almost too late as they loose one of their own. Still Logan does not feel he is the one to take the lead but as they fight for survival he does what he believes is best, making mistake after mistake yet somehow coming through each ordeal.
He is at once resentful that they look to him for answers while at the same time showing disdain and questioning his choices. But he continues because he has no choice.
(possible spoilers)
After loosing their means of transport and another harrowing escape they come across a small boy, who may or may not hold the key to a cure for the virus that has ravaged the country.
Logan grows as a leader as he fights of the Reanimated as well as looters fighting them off along with Cassie whom he is attracted to as she is to him.
Logan grows in small increments as he finds strength to do what he must as he trys leads his small group to what he hopes will be help.
And we must not forget the Military who have suddenly appeared, far too quickly to evacuate those not infected and quickly dispatching them properly?
This is a must read for any ZomPoc fan as G. J. Stevens shows his talent switching from each major player in this novel and their harrowing escape from the reanimated.
Really looking forward to the next installment

New twist to the Zombie Apocalypse

The narrator does and excellent job at bringing this story to life. I enjoyed the new twist to the zombie apocalypse . The characters were well developed and the plot kept you moving along hoping that they would survive. Overall it was a great story and done very well but seemed a little long to me. Despite how long it was I can't wait to see what happens to Logan and his friends in the second book.

Good pace, plausible storyline, overall enjoyable

I enjoyed listening to this story. The pace was good and the book didn't slow down any where in the narrative. One small point, for less traveled readers you will encounter a few UK English words used in a way US English speakers are not used to. Boot is trunk, bonnet is hood, etc. I am looking forward to hearing more from this author. The four stars for story is simply because I don't like cliff hangers and I felt the story left me hanging asking what happened to the characters.

There isn’t one moment...

...where things seem to go in favor of these characters. This is a true horror survival story with plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. I really took my time with this one and it was so worth it.

As an audio book with only one narrator I had a bit of confusion at first keeping up with all the names. I feel like this was just me, but I haven’t had much issue with any other titles in my library. With that said the narration was fantastic and clear.

As far as the story goes it seems like the take on the zombies was fresh and the action seemed believably real. The writing painted enough of a picture that I could use visualization to fill up any given scene and that’s important to me, especially while listening to an audio book.

I really look forward to the next installment because there were some questions opened up at the very end. That’s good because now the author has hooked me.

Overall I Recommend this title for anyone who can’t get enough horror survival. It may not be for a mainstream audience but it is definitely a five star read for any true horror survival fan.

Good

This is good story. I like how the characters interacted. The author did a great job. The narrator was decent. I didn't get much diversity in the voices.

Don't waste your credit!

Story was dry and boring. Even the zombies! The narrator was the only good thing about the book.
