13601681

She’s searching for answers to her past. They’re hunting her to save their future.

World War III has left he world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They’ve survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there. 

At least, this is was Juneau has been told her entire life. 

When Juneau returns form a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie. 

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she’s tying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past.’

I was immediately drawn in by the cover; and then I was dragged into reading After the End by reading the synopsis. I’m not even joking. I read the synopsis, and I literally thought, I need to read this ASAP. And I’m so glad that I got to read it!

When we start reading After the End, we’re introduced to Juneau and what’s going on in her world. When Juneau returns from a trip, she realizes that her whole clan; her family pretty much, has disappeared. Upon further investigation done by Juneau, she realizes that the clan didn’t just disappear. Her clan has been kidnapped. And this is when the story really starts.

All-in-all, After the End is a great read. Juneau learns so much- she learns to trust. Which, believe it or not, is a big deal for Juneau. Even though Juneau was raised within her pack, she was raised to not trust anyone she may come across. More importantly, Juneau discovers lies and truths. I don’t agree with everything Juneau did in this book. There are a lot of things that Juneau did that bothered me relentlessly, but I can definitely understand why Juneau did what she did.

I’m really excited to read Until the Beginning, which is the second book. After the End was an exciting read that left me wanting -needing- to know more about what happens next in this thrilling story!

Here you can find After the End on Goodreads, if you’re interested in adding this book to your TBR.

Thanks for reading. Until next time,
Adele.
