I can't remember if I rated book one 4 Stars or 5 Stars.
Whatever it was I loved it.
And this book is a disaster.
It's preachy.
I mean 90% of humans are dead and we are told that prayers work because the parents of 2 boys must have prayed they would survive. Seriously?
That's just one cringeworthy moment in a book that is full of them.
I really loved book one and for that reason alone I finished this book but honestly I shouldn't have.
One, maybe two stars.

The Last Woman 2

The continuous story of Faye and Dodge. The rules of life has change. Faye maybe the last woman in the US. Can Dodge keep her save? Or will the barcode the world take her? Ok story.

Life goes on

Much weaker than part one and doesn't really stand alone. Lots of tying up loose ends and deus ex machina. Should have been part of book, but that would have made the first part more artificial.

The Last Woman 2 by J Durga

Good story line and very well written. Enjoyed reading and will continue to look for more works by Jacqueline Durga.

I am a fan of this author but The Last Woman and The Last Woman 2 are the very best of them. The characters are so real, with flaws like we all have. Faye lost her husband and children in a terrible car accident just three months before a flu pandemic wipes out most of humanity. Faye was drowning her sorrows in alcohol when she contracted the flu. The next thing she is aware of is waking up and hearing she had the flu and then she lost consciousness again. When she next awakes she is in a pile o ...more

Book 2 the author decides to write chapters based on w,hose point of view it is. Faye continues her journey along, but doesn't seem to have a backbone, relying on strong men to bail her out of situations. Her little "family" are jumped by a group of marauding mountain men. The US military unit, who is also tracking her down intervene. But not before Dodge is injured and Tyler is stabbed.
She and Tyler (Dodge's son) are flown to Com Camp in the Panhandle area of Florida. This is the government c

After reading The Last Women 1 (my first book from this author) I was impressed enough to go onto book 2. The book picks up right after book 1 and the group decides to move south where there is a survival camp. But they need to move quickly because government military are looking for the last women in hopes of repopulating the human race.

Naturally, on the way they get attacked (view spoiler)

Great read!

I am definitely partial to post apocalyptic stories, but this became a favorite. The characters are interesting and multi-faceted. I loved that they weren’t portrayed in a black and white, good or bad manner. We all have elements of light and darkness within us. I loved the community they ended up in. I personally was convinced it was going to be a scary cult at first, but was so happy to see that the monks were not trying to impose their beliefs on the others. They lived their faith

Not as good as the first book “The Last Woman, 1”

For me the book moved slowly given that the principle characters often gave the same description of an event but from their prospective. A lot of duplication and time drag. A principle character was not well developed though he was instrumental to the main characters’ survival. The ending of the book was anticlimactic, disjointed by the division of time during which many trials and tribulations were glossed over and wrapped up in mere paragraphs t

Excellent reading!

From the moment you discover Faye you’re hooked! The story is captivating. There are many similar story lines out there but what makes this book different are the characters. They bring you into their story and don’t let you go.When I finished the first book I had to buy the second book immediately! This book will stay with you long after you’re done because you think, could it happen to us? Buy these books, you won’t regret it!

I loved the first but there was so much more in this last book. Still loving Dodge. He is truly awesome. You walk away feeling like you knew him. There was tears in parts of the story. Which was great for me. Makes the characters real.
I think the scary part of a lot of the authors books are the “it” could really happen. That is terrifying. Especially with the coronavirus.
Grab both books and enjoy.

No zombies! Good

I enjoyed and was entertained by this well written book. I read The Last Woman in one day and the sequel the next.
Smooth reading with no jump out scary parts. I'm a Disney fan so horror doesn't work for me. The author does write horror stories, but this one only had a few survival scenes.

This is the last of a two-part story. It begins with a nice, brief recounting of the previous book, so it can stand alone. It by no means replaces the first book, though. I recommend both!

Faye and her new family encounter troubles because she is the last woman.

Clean language, chaste romance, some blood and death.

I really enjoyed this series, especially with a female as the main character. It had a good story line with well-written characters. It was definitely gory and stomach-turning. I appreciated that there weren't much foul language or gratuitous scenes. There were a variety of scenarios covered that show both the weaknesses and strengths. Overall, I liked the series. ...more

After reading the first book, I had to get the second book. Still good reading, and I still struggled a little with Faye. Dodge is a great character and he does his best to protect Faye, but she has this subtle determination to take care of herself. And it's just a little irritating. Still, an exciting read. ...more

Good second book to a very good series. There are a few editing issues but tolerable. I felt like this wrapped up very quickly and seemed odd that she was just allowed to leave. Still an excellent tale.

Great series

The main character went through a metamorphosis that was interesting to watch. I was rooting for her to find her way in the world. Enjoyable read from beginning to end.

Not as good as the first but very satisfying in the end.

Not my favorite format but necessary to the story, The attack on com command was not realistic . The rebels would have been killed trying to storm the gates. The end was great. They tied off the loose ends in a good way.

Last woman two

I agree with a previous reviewer that this part one and two should have been one book. Having said that I again found the characters great if a little black and white.

Wow! Hope springs eternal.

Loved this series and so happy that humanity goes on after all. What a burden knowing you are the only woman left. I was troubled by one thing though. Was it because Faye was drunk that she suevived?

Both Books Rock!!

These books are excellent stories. Even for people who aren't fans of apocalypse fiction. Anyone who enjoys great characters and marvelous stories should read these books. I hope to find and read more of Druga's work.

A great continuation of book 1, every page brought exactly the whole series together. Loved this story, the characters and the idea for the end of the world's people, was one that was original. Great storytelling Ms. Druga!

Something special

Out of the ashes of a world destroyed some follow a true path to try & save humanity. While other lost souls just want to see the entire world burn, survivors included. The Last Woman is truly something special indeed. In the end there is purple soap for all.
