#Giveaway Celebrate The Ending Series by @LinsFairleigh & @LindseyRPogue

5 Out of 5 Stars
Fallon's Review:
After The Ending was Amazing. (This review is not as detailed because the book starts off right away and I do not want to spoil key moments.) I was glued from the very beginning. Literally by page 20 you are already so invested. This story is from 2 POV's Dani and Zoe and they are best friends. I have to say I preferred Dani for the first part of the book but then I got into Zoe's story and loved them both.

This book had so many great aspects. Disease is taking over and 85% of the population is dying or passed on from the disease. This world brings some survivors closer together and others are harder to trust. Do you stay together or go it alone?

I am in love with this book I can not even express it in enough words. It had romance, action, humor and moments of absolute horror. I was swooning over Zoe's brother Jason. I can not wait for Into The Fire. If you have been looking for a great read that you will not want to put down, this is your…

Fallon's Review
WhipEye starts off at a very fast pace and keeps you going from beginning till end. Sam is a girl who is in love with animals. She is a walking animal thesaurus so to speak. She loves visiting Charlie a talking Parrot and rescues him from living in a cage for the rest of his life. Little did she know that by rescuing Charlie a whole mess of events bigger then the world we know would unravel. The Store owner Ma…

Into The Fire (The Ending #2) by @LindsFairleigh & @LindseyRPogue ~ Review by Fallon

5 Out of 5 Stars
Author Description:
The Virus changed them, but that was only the beginning…
…all that remains is hope.

In the wake of destruction left behind by the Virus, it took Dani and Zoe months to find each other. But their reunion was short-lived. Dani has been taken, and though little distance separates them, they might as well be worlds apart.

From the moment she hears Dani’s scream, Zoe’s only goal is to save her best friend. She and her companions scramble to come up with a rescue plan, but when a ghost from Jake’s past reappears, lines are blurred, decisions become harder, and secrets are revealed…and some secrets are best left buried. To keep heartache and fear from consuming her, Zoe must cling to her determination. She WILL see Dani again.

Dani awakens inside the final hold-out of civilization: the Colony. Remnants of the former world surround her—electricity, safety, social order—but all is not what it seems. As she f…

After The Ending by @LindseyFairleigh & @LindseyRPogue ~ Review by Fallon

5 Out of 5 Stars
Author Description:

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, 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 c…
