Action-packed, which I enjoyed. A large cast of characters, of whom the reader gets 3 different POV. An average, everyday guy is our hero - which is a nice change.

There are more than a few issues though. This really requires an editor for grammar, misuse of words, and cohesion. I could tell the author went back to rework parts of the story, and this left a little confusion as some scenes just don't flow properly.

The author could also use a dictionary and thesaurus, in particular, in use of the

Shelves: zombie, thriller
This is the first zombie book I've read and I'm so glad I took a chance on a different genre.
I loved the fast pace and short chapters which kept me turning the pages. For the poor characters thrust into this nightmarish situation there is no let up. Even when you think they're safe to lie down and rest, just for a moment, another shocking twist is waiting around the corner.
Be warned, it ends with a cliff hanger and I can't wait to see what happens next!

In The End

Great book, great dark humor and great characters. Looking forward to reading more of this author's stories. Was a little confusing in places, but I am expecting it to all blend in the following sequels.

Exciting book

I could not put this book down. I really hope there is a sequel. I want to find out happens.
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.

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review, but my opinions are my own.

In The End is a dystopian thriller set in southwest England and follows a group of friends after the power goes out on New Year's Eve and the world as they knew it no longer seems to exist. Logan, the narrator, does his best to keep his friends alive in a world where nothing is as it seems and the odds are stacked against them.

There was an awful lot to like about this book. The plot moves like a steamrolle

Great Zombie Adventure

If you like books in the zombie genre, then give this author a try. The zombie apocalypse happened fast. It caught main character, Logan, unprepared and stuck behind in the zombie zone. Enjoyed the two types of zombies, fights to survive, evil government officials, soldiers caught in the middle, and hope for a cure. Characters were well written and each important character had a chapter written in first person. This helped the tr reader get to know them quickly and become i

This was a solid zombie apocalypse story. I only gave it four stars because it took me a long while to connect with the characters.

In The End is quite simply one of the most exciting, incredible, dystopian books I have ever read. In The End, has astounded me, I enjoyed every single moment of the book because it was by far a perfect read. The wonderful author of the novel, GJ Stevens, is a true literary talent because he managed to captivate and enthrall from the very beginning. To be honest, a part of me was always going to love this book because I love dystopian novels but even if I did not, I would still love this book be ...more

Surprisingly good

Recommended by a friend, I was not disappointed in this new series. Many ZomPoc books have military heros/heroines or in some line of responder career, the main character Logan is neither. He and several friends are out celebrating the ending of one year and beginning of a new one. Little did he or any of them realize this new year was nothing they could celebrate as they are caught unaware and far from home when a Virus begins to rage out of control and help is from te governme

I was very lucky to receive a copy of In The End from the author.
This is the first book of a series and is available to buy now from Amazon. The second book is available for pre order and is due to be released on 8th Nov.
I read a lot of zombie fiction and what I loved about this book is that the main characters were just your average people. A lot of books in this genre have a main character who is either military, ex-military, a survivalist, or they meet up with someone who is one of the abo

Really enjoyed this book, a first in a series (and you should definitely read book two). The pace is good, the chapters are short and leave you ready to read more, and the characters are interesting. I particularly like the way several characters take the lead perspective in different chapters; not switching every time, but only as needed. This story has all the zombie things I'm looking for when I read zompoc, of which I read a lot, but it's different enough that I was really looking forward to ...more

Awesome, fast paced with well written characters. Characters you almost feel like you know. Yes there are zombies but not all are the run of the mill Romero zombies but yet they aren't the talking kind some authors like to write about!

Imagine waking up with the hangover of all time as someone pounds on your door telling you to get out quick, you have to evacuate to where , from what , that's the premise of this story as it unfolds in sleepy Cornwall their terrifying flight to safety is not guaranteed. Behold the undead risen.

As someone who lives in Cornwall and loves anything post apocalyptic or with zombies. Reading this was a no brainer. But I have to say the say the lack of Cornish landmarks was a disappointment. But that was the only disappointment. Fast moving, written from multiple perspectives that tie together and weave an action packed storyline, this book is great fun. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

Logan faces the apocalypse with friends and feels he must lead them to safety away from the virus that is changing the dead into vicious zombies. A well written story of survival against the odds.
