Until the End of the World – And After – So Long, Lollipops – All the Stars in the Sky
Mordacious – Peripetia – Instauration (The City Series)
World Departed – World Between
OMG!! Where to start with these books??
All three series are set in the same time frame and overlap some due to family relations and geographic locations.
The ‘Until the End of the World’ series (UTEOTW) follows a group of friends over several years as they deal with the End of the World and the Zombie Apocalypse. Migrating from New York and trying to find a safe place to live. Safe from the Zombies and away from bad people.
The ‘City Series’ follows a group of people who are stuck in New York, cut off from the rest of the country by destroyed bridges.
And in the ‘World Departed’ series (the most recently published), we follow a group of people traveling from California to Oregon, and another group they eventually meet up with in Oregon.
There is so much I love about these books including all the survival tips and suggestions. I’m a little bit of a ‘prepper’ myself although not like the ones people tend to think about when they hear that term.
But ultimately it is the way the characters are written that really draw a reader in. Any author who can create characters that a reader feels invested in and will cry over when they are hurt or killed, now that is a great writer! Sarah is definitely in that category.
I am of course more of a ‘listener’ than a physical reader though, so the narration must also be good to earn my attention and respect. All of Sarah’s books are professionally narrated, with experienced narrators that only increase the power of each series to the point that many of her fans are now pre-ordering her books as they are near completion. I know that I pre-ordered the most recent book, World Between, along with many of the Facebook Group that I am proudly a part of.
I don’t follow many authors but I keep up with Sarah to know what is coming up, and because so many of her followers are of a similar mindset as me. It’s a really great Facebook group, much like family. A crazy, kooky family, but a family just the same.
I have to say that Sarah is in my top 5 favorite authors, and that is really saying something if you knew how many books I have read and listened to over the years.
If you are interested in Zombies, the Apocalypse, or End of the World stories, then Sarah Lyons Fleming is one you absolutely MUST add to your list. Believe me, you will not be disappointed.
As always, I wish you all Happy Listening!
