The Ending Series

World Before: A Collection of Stories is book five in The Ending Series by Lindsey Pogue and Lindsey Fairleigh. I have been completely obsessed with this series from the start. This was a perfect addition to the series giving us glimpses of the character’s lives “before” The Ending.

The world was forever changed. A virus that was unleashed killed off most of the world’s inhabitants. Anyone still remaining had abilities they weren’t aware of before. Zoe Cartwright was an empath. But in addition t

Ever wonder about the world BEFORE Lindsey Pogue and Lindsey Fairleigh’s The Ending series? What were the characters like? How did they live? What propelled them into the new lives they now lead? Was there something that pre-destined their lives after the virus that forever changed the face of humanity? Humanity may be changed, altered, but memories remain…for some, their lives will only be memories, for others, those memories will live and shape an unknown future.

From the pain of Gabe’s past that propelle

Every ending has a beginning. This is the first line of the blurb describing The Ending Series: World Before. It's so simple, yet says so much. It's the perfect intro. The Ending Series by the Lindsey's is one of the best apocalyptic series ever written in my opinion. The story is multi-layered; it is startling in it's simplicity and possibility. The characters are so complex, so likable. It's an addictive series. This book is it's before and after. The story is being told by Zoe, one of the ori ...more

I loved this book!. It was perfect, I just wished it was longer. It made me want to read the series all over again. I hate spoilers, so I won't share any. Read it. Then read the series again or for the first time. It's worth it. Thank you Lindsey & Lindsey!

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
This is possibly the shortest review I have ever written. I absolutely enjoyed this novel. I felt as though I was able to connect with the characters better knowing their stories of Before.
I can't say if I have a favorite part and I do not intend to do any spoilers.

Again, shortest review ever!

Do I recommend? Yes, I recommend after completing the series.
Final thoughts: sobbing my eyes out and smiling like a girl who got her

This is a must have for all fans of the ending series! It was awesome and gave a lot of background information into a lot of my favourite characters. It was witty, charming, serious and little funny at times. It actually got me reminiscing a little bit about my past and some of the cool things that I’ve done and some of the not so cool things… if you really want to treat yourself listen to the audiobook. Team Lindsay was consistent and they got the same narrator to do all five books and she does ...more

World Before: A Collection of Stories (The Ending Series Book 5)
by Lindsey Fairleigh & Lindsey Pogue
Aug 3 2017

This was an enjoyable read, it is the 5th book in the Endings series. I love the well developed characters I have grown to love through the series. We get a peek of what life was like before the ending. Some of the background we had gotten before, some with more details. Some were new in this book, all were well thought out and delivered to the readers to make the ser

I loved this! It's Zoe journal where she writes down memories she's seen since they're just trapped inside her head and she can't talk about them. Well she could but that would just be awkward for them.
It was so nice seeing memories from before the world went to crap with a little bit of what's happening after the series ended. However I wasn't expecting that ending! I'm sure it means there's more books to come.

Short but really good.

This was full of interesting information on the main characters with an entirely unexpected twist at the end. I can’t wait for the next book.
