“I’m handling it.”
“Good girl. Listen, I need to tell you something…”
“Kay, what is it?!”
My stomach turns over as dread seeps into every pore of my body.
“Dr. Reynolds has Baby.”
So begins the conclusion to the In the After series. At the end of In the After Amy was leaving New Hope and running towards Fort Black, another survival colony. Dealing with the truths that she learned in New Hope, and having to leave Baby there, Amy is desperate to reach Fort Black. There she will find Kay’s brother, and together they will return to New Hope to rescue Baby. Except Amy was not counting on Fort Black to have been a prison in the Before, and she was not counting on making personal connections with anyone there. After leaving the conspiracy ridden New Hope, Amy has walked right into another conspiracy/danger ridden place. With Dr. Reynolds taking Baby, the clock is running out for Amy to dismantle everything he built, save the people that survived the After, and get the people she loves out of danger’s grasp. An action packed exciting story of a post-apocalyptic world, where humans are the monsters and Frankenstein should have been a parable to the world in this book.
4 out of 5 stars. Thanks Edelweiss.
