Review: The Ruin of the World by Nazarene Andrews

Title: The Ruin of the World
By: Nazarea Andrews
Series: The World Without End #4
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

When the zombies rose, we thought the world ended.
It didn’t—it just broke, in a way we couldn’t fix. And we found ways to continue, reasons to fight.
Faith. Family. Politics. Obsession. The most dangerous of all—hope.
But when all of that is stripped away, and nothing remains but rage and betrayal—that is the true end of the world.

Return to the World Without End, for a final battle for hope and survival in the exciting conclusion to Nazarea Andrews’ phenomenal series.

Oh, it just happened…the series ended…and it was everything that I wanted and more (plus, I am also a little sad that it ended.) 

This series has been such an intense ride for the last year or so.  Every time that I finished a book, I would have this countdown to the next release.  I would re-play what I read in my head while going throughout my daily routine.  I would wonder what was going to happen in the next.  Basically, this series consumed me in a probably unhealthy way (but I don’t mind because it was amazing.) 

The last leg of this journey with Finn and Ren is more dangerous than the last three. This time, both are under the command of Omar and his plan is to go East – the side that has been structured off from the West for the last twenty years. 

I don’t want to say too much because who wants spoilers?! But I will say that things get real in this book.  Plots unfold, new people are introduced, old people get spotlighted, and Finn opens up (yes, you heard me, Finn shows some kind of emotion besides anger!!!) Also, those singular moments between Finn and Ren when they were alone were perfect and true to their characters. 

And I can’t end this review without talking about the very last chapter - such a perfect way to end this series.  An absolute brilliant plan on Andrews’s part.
