Publisher's Summary

"I have no idea what is truth and what is fiction. I'm all I've got now. I can't trust anyone."
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last 30 years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.
At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.
When Juneau returns from 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 trying 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.

Interesting but do your research

Any additional comments?

Kind of a fun story but, do your research. Alaska doesn't have snakes. Also, Alaska is remote but a "clan" couldn't hide around Denali for over 17 years undetected.

I enjoyed listening to it.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed listening to After the End, and at first I was enjoying the story. The character of Miles is very funny as he tries to understand Juno's actions, so I found myself laughing out loud at time. There is some mystery to the story, but just wasn't enough to make me want to listen to the next book in the series. I was also disappoint that the first book didn't have an ending. I think a first book in a series should have an ending to it, but have just enough mystery to have the reader hoping the author will write another one. This book did not, it just ended like every other chapter before it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It didn't have an ending.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really did enjoy the scene with Miles and Juno out in the forest when she hunts for food, very funny.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Probably not.
