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!

Gripping, fast paced apocalyptic story.

Great narrative description through out. Kept me coming back for more. The reluctant hero battles through with his friends & allies.

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 👍

Brilliant, absolutely loved it

What a rollercoaster of a journey, can’t wait for the next. Narrator also has a voice like chocolate which makes listening very atmospheric.
Brilliant, more please

Boring

The narration was possibly the most uninterested I've ever heard, he sounded as if he had taken a handful of Xanax before starting, zero emotional range in the reading

Great Characters, an enjoyable listen.

I do like a good zombie story and for the most part this did not let me down. For the most part this is a first person story which makes a change from the typical skipping from group to group leaving one set in peril to another group and leaving those in peril, so i quite enjoyed the narrative.
There was some great character development, which I enjoyed, however there were some things that didn’t sit quite right with me. I didn’t understand the timeline at the start of the book…………the gap at the start from the first warning to the time that the main protagonist gets in the car did not sit right with me. The fact that there were NO other cars on the road…………now we know from present experience with the pandemic that people do not believe what they hear or follow government guidelines means that in my head there would be more people wandering and lolly gagging, standing at their doorways going “what is going on”. Where were the people in the cars at the back of the jams? Not everyone would have gotten out of their cars and walked. We are British we queue, we wait in line, we don’t just get out of our cars and walk together to the front of the queue leaving our cars unlocked…..much like the group a couple would have stayed towards the rear. Through the rest of the story I had this nagging feeling that the start wasn’t right, which results in the four stars.
The chapters are also annoyingly short which in the first person narrative is not necessary, they could have been doubled even trebled in length which would have allowed for a better flow.
However, I am aware that the author can not please all of the people all of the time and the fact that I listened to the end, with questions means that I had been absorbed in the book. I will definitely listen again, with fresher ears to see if I can find answers to the questions that I have.

Edited review to five stars, why? Because i am still asking the same questions, therefore still thinking about the book so it obviously made some impact on me. If a book still has you thinking weeks after you have listened to it or read it for whatever reason it deserves five stars.

slow start but gets engaging

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

Excellent Start!

I LOVE zombie stories! I also adore British accents. This book had both! This author is new to me, so I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but I'm really glad I gave this book a chance! I've already recommended it to a friend who loves zombies, and I'm downloading book two as I type this review. The narrator did a great job, as well.

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

Slow and not engaging

I have read most of the zombie books out there. This story did not draw me in. The narrator can put you to sleep. The story does not draw you in to the characters. It lacks drama, suspense, and action.

Bad Story Gone Good

I'm use to mediocre post apocalyptic tales. I'm use to good characters in bad stories...neither are true here. Believable people in terrible situations who fight both the emotional and very tangible demons. Well done. Perhaps new narrator and faster pace.

Really enjoyed this take on the zombie infection

And the (inadequate) response of the government. This is how I imagine any government handling something of this magnitude. I love the characters and the dog, Shadow. The jumping from different view points caught me off guard but I soon got use to that. Looking forward to book 2.

Tough at first

Mr. Stevens gave me a Audible copy for a honest review, I read and listened at the same time.
I loved the story overall, but had a problem with the narrator, mostly because his voice reminded me of my voice, which is deep and slow, but reading and listening at the same time helped me overcome my trepidation, I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to the next book, hope you enjoy.
