Goodreads summary

The Virus spread. Billions died. The Ending began. We may have survived the apocalypse, but the Virus changed us.

When people started getting sick, “they” thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family…they’re all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them—with the rest of the world—but I didn’t. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I’d ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O’Connor, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

The Virus changed everything. The world I knew is gone, and life is backwards. We’ve all had to start over. I’ve been stripped of my home, my dreams…all that is me. I’m someone else now—broken and changed. Other survivors’ memories and emotions haunt me. They invade my mind until I can no longer separate them from my own. I won’t let them consume me. I can’t. My name is Zoe Cartwright, I’m twenty-six-years-old, and I survived The Ending.

We’ve been inseparable for most of our lives, and now our friendship is all we have left. The aftermath of the Virus has stranded us on opposite sides of the United States. Trusting strangers, making sacrifices, killing—we’ll do anything to reach one another. Fear and pain may be unavoidable, but we’re strong…we’re survivors. But to continue surviving in this unfamiliar world plagued by Crazies and strange new abilities, we have to adapt. We have to evolve.

And more than anything, we have to find each other.

Really like the simplicity to this cover! 

This is one of those books where you really enjoy but you’re not too fussed about the ending or what’s to come as literally anything could happen.

The story is about people getting the flu and dying… that is the apocalypse. Zoe and Dani two best friends who live on the opposite side of the country need to find each other after the “ending”. That is the jist of the book. Basically people die and then they gain these “abilities” which are pretty much superpowers (some can talk to you in your mind, others can calm you down, manipulate you) it’s all great fun (apart from all the dead people and their bodies just piling up)
So with the new hype of apocalypse with World War Z coming out in the cinema (which was pretty awesome) I couldn’t wait to be a part of this book tour and yay me for signing up for it. I really loved this book. I thought it was a really interesting idea and I really liked it.
The style of writing is brilliant. Each chapter is told by either Dani or Zoe and they switch about which I thought was pretty awesome as you get to know what is happening with both of the girls. At the end of the chapter the girls write emails to each other (who knew the internet would still be up after the end of the world?) which got really annoying. At first it was nice as the relationship between the girls grew but holy hell did that get boring. It was just re reading the chapter but with more chatty comments.
I love how two authors worked together on this book, it’s one of the first books that I’ve read that two authors are included in the whole story; and they really pulled through the book had a really good flow to it that I loved.

To be honest I would love to have one of those abilities… no I’d want more than one it would be so awesome… but shame about all the people dying and not surviving the virus.
