Reynolds has Baby. One small slip-up on this quest could spark a downward spiral that would not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the very survival of the people in the After. Why did I read this book: I thoroughly enjoyed and was pleasantly surprised by In the After , book 1 in this duology.
Naturally, I was extremely excited for book 2 and bought it as soon as it came out last month! If you have not read book 1 and want to remain unspoiled, look away! The world has ended in a flurry of teeth and blood.
The Apocalypse Blog, Book 1
After an experimental virus escapes from a governmental test facility, humankind has changed and civilization has ended. Seventeen-year-old Amy has adapted and survived the onslaught of the ravenous florae, learning how to be completely soundless and to scavenge the ruins of civilization with the help of her surrogate younger sister, Baby.
All of that changes, though, when Amy and Baby discover that there are other survivors out there and are whisked away to the protected colony of New Hope. Soon, the girls are separated, and a desperate Amy makes a last ditch effort to save her sister by leaving New Hope for the only other human encampment: Fort Black. Here, Amy hopes to find help from another doctor, who can save Baby from experimentation and death — and quite possibly save the human race at the same time. The second and final book in the In the After duology, In the End had a lot of potential.
The bond between Amy and her surrogate sister Baby was at the heart of that book, and clearly drove not only the character arcs, but the plot for that novel. The biggest gripe I have with this particular novel is how manufactured it reads and feels.

Compounding this rather unimaginative setup is the problem that Amy, our heroine, does very little to challenge the status quo. Of course, Amy finds her emotions torn between this new guy, Jacks, and her former flame back at New Hope, Rice. I did love the introduction of new lesbian character Brenna, and that she provides a counterpoint to all of the other women of Fort Black who willingly go along with their dude protectors including but not limited to the former attorney who falls in love with one of her former guilty clients and literally refuses to live without him.
It reads, in all honesty, like a first draft that needs some drastic tightening up.
