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.

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 👍

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!

Great book

Great book/story, as you move through the book the characters really come to life, and something a little different is that a lot of the characters are written in the first person perspective, which is something I have not come across in this genda of books before

Slow and Steady

The story is a bit slow, but that's because I am used to super fast action packed Zombie series. That does not mean the story is bad. It's pretty good and some times slow and steady wins the race. You care enough about the characters to want to know what's going to happen next. I look forward to reading the next book because this book left us with a big unanswered question.

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

Signs of 2020?

It was a better version of the end of The Walking Dead. I loved the characters and was really rooting for the hero. Am anxious to read the second book. Seriously held me captivated.

Indepth plot line of how the average Joe struggles

As the world ends it who you become that matters. Great Plot, Great storyline, I could feel the pain as Logan did. The good supporting cast and didn't wander too far from the main storyline made for an enjoyable read. The only complaint was the recording seemed soft and muted but that's not the story just my copy or phone. Great Job GJ Stevens.

Easy to follow smaller plot

a good story with a simple plot. I think a 3rd person type narration would have worked better but it was still good.

Good story & Entertaining

The story at the beginning took me a little while to get into, however by the end of the book I was looking forward to the next. It really is a good story with an interesting look at the zombie virus comparing nature to the virus. It makes you think if this can occur in nature can it only be a matter of time before human kind messes with the wrong experiment and creates a real zombie virus and will this be what the world would look like. Really good book!
