Publisher's Summary

Attack.
Not isolated.
Fate of Americans: unknown.

Amy is watching TV when the world is attacked by Them. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to survive - and even rescue "Baby" - a toddler she finds in an abandoned supermarket.
Then, after years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream, with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she'll lose Baby - and much more.
You'll tear through the pulse-pounding narrow escapes and horrifying twists of fate in this thrilling debut from author Demitria Lunetta.

Riveting New Series

This is a thoroughly enjoyable science fiction/post apocalypse story of survival and morality. I stayed up late a couple of nights glued to the headphones needing to know what happens next. There are lots of plot twists, some you might see coming and some you don’t. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. Don’t miss this.

OK not just another "end of times" story

Would you listen to In the After again? Why?

I don't listen to books after I have heard them. Not yet, anyway.

Would you be willing to try another book from Demitria Lunetta? Why or why not?

Absolutely. Literate, lively, she brings the characters to live, although the current trend to making the proantagonist is stories "niave" and "unable to see the forrest for the trees" tends to be irksome. <br/>This story is no exception, but hey, it comes with the territory.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the truth of where and what the real issue was. Compelling listening to be sure.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Sometimes abit gruesome, and some funny dialogue.

Any additional comments?

The highlight of this presentation is the performance by Julia Whelan. Stunning. Full of emotion, authenticity, creativity and flexibility. I recommend her work highly, and notably in this environment. <br/>For an end of times presentation, recommended, esp. the reading.

Not my cup of tea

I love a zombie book but after listening to five chapters I really couldn't see myself liking it. Maybe it's more of a teenagers book.

Enjoyable listen

Different to what I normally listen to. At first I thought I wouldn't enjoy it. But found myself totally engrossed in the story and didn't want it to end.
