Until the End of the World Series
Until the End of the World is a horror series by Sarah Lyons Fleming. The world is ending thanks to a virus that is turning people into zombies. Carrie has been detached from all that is happening around her until it is clear that her chances of survival are minimal. However, thanks to her late parents, who were survivalists, Carrie has a home to run to. With her five friends in town, Carrie makes the long journey from New York to Vermont, where Carrie’s parents had built a home with everything one would need in case of an apocalypse. While the group gets to its destination, that is just the beginning. Things get tougher by the day, and everyone has to learn to adjust to a new life before they all turn into zombies.

Until the End of the World
Until the End of the World comes first in the Until the End of the World series. Carrie Forrest has decided to finally get her life in order. Ever since her parents died, her life had taken a downward spiral. Carrie had broken off her engagement, stopped painting, and even dated a jerk with who she is still entangled because she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings. She is not surprised to know that the world ends on the day she decides to start rebuilding her life. After all, she had been on a losing streak, so things could only continue getting worse before they get better. Rebuilding a new life and rectifying past mistakes have to take a back seat now as Cassie needs to leave Brooklyn fast before Bornavirus LX turns her and everyone else into zombies.

As if things are not challenging enough, Cassie tags her nasty boyfriend and friend’s sister to her parents’ beach house. Just the two people she needs to make the apocalypse even more unpleasant. Fortunately, Carrie’s parents had prepared adequately for disasters, and while they were no more, the house was well stocked. This is not to mean that things will be easy for this small group of friends. When they attract something as deadly as the zombies to their haven, they are all tested beyond their limits. How far will Cassie and her friends go to protect their loved ones?

This is more than a story about zombies. It is the story of family, love, friends, breakups and everything in between.

While the atmosphere spells gloom and doom, this novel will have you grinning to the last page.
