Présentation de l'éditeur

Michael Grant's Gone series meets M. Night Shyamalan's The Village in this riveting story of one girl's journey to save the very people who have lied to her for her entire life. Amy Plum, international bestselling author of the Die for Me series, delivers a fast-paced adventure perfect for fans of Marie Lu, Veronica Rossi, and Robison Wells.

Juneau grew up fearing the outside world. The elders told her that beyond the borders of their land in the Alaskan wilderness, nuclear war had destroyed everything. But when Juneau returns from a hunting trip one day and discovers her people have been abducted, she sets off to find them. And leaving the boundaries for the very first time, she learns the horrifying truth: World War III never happened. Nothing was destroyed. Everything she'd ever been taught was a lie.

As Juneau comes to terms with an unfathomable deception, she is forced to survive in a completely foreign world, using only the skills and abilities she developed in the wild. But while she's struggling to rescue her friends and family, someone else is after her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about her secret past.

I read Amy Plum's Die for Me books twice over very quickly after first discovering them, so when After the End came out, I put in a pre-order, even though I wasn't sure if a road trip in the U.S. could captivate me as much. Though very different from the Die for Me trilogy, After the End didn't disappoint me.
A present-tense, first-person account with two narrators, it starts off making you wonder if you are in the future, or in an alternate history, as you follow Juneau. The switches to Miles's point-of-view are short but fill in the gaps where Juneau's point-of-view can't each. I don't want to write any spoilers, so let's just say that the two aren't your usual pair on a road trip. Their relationship and the reasons for it are just as unusual as their destination and the way they came to meet.
Enjoy. And then wait impatiently for the sequel, like me.
Oh, and yes, I did read it in a single day.

Coincidences, Coincidences 6 mai 2014
Par Leah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
AFTER THE END is a hard novel to review. I don't know if ATE wanted to encompass different genres like sci-fi, thriller, fantasy, and what I'm thinking as faux dystopian. If you've seen or heard of M. Night Shymalan's movie THE VILLAGE, this book is like that, only instead of one major twist, AFTER THE END has several. Unfortunately, by the time the twists meet up and everything starts to make sense, I was confused by the logic leaps and the number of coincidences which kept cropping up.

Juneau is a young woman raised and living in the Alaskan wild by her father and a close group of friends. She has abilities no one aside from her clan understands. Miles is the progeny of a wealthy man who is ignored for the most part, until he gets involved with his dad's plans to find a mysterious girl. These two teens meet and both their lives change. Each teen takes a turn narrating chapters.

Author Amy Plum writes with fluidity that makes the book easy to get in to. But I'm not a big fan of dual narrators, and I think this novel should have been strictly Juneau's. Her story arc is so huge in scope that it needed more focus. Miles was more of a hurdle you have to jump over to get back to her. You can't really root for him when he knowingly gets involved to hunt Juneau out to get into his dad's good graces. I didn't get a feel for him until near the end of the book.

MILD SPOILERS BELOW:

There were too many coincidences. Juneau needs answers? No problem, she just finds the local homeless person (which I found very offensive), taps into powers, and they'll give her some. She gets hurt running away from some bad guys, and there's, coincidentally, a woman who appears who can help her with that too. Her abilities are strong in the beginning of the book, then conveniently go away, then come back when she really needs them. She doesn't use her abilities when she must. It's too tidy for my taste.

The biggest pet peeve I have is that Juneau was born with a unique eye anomaly, a gold starburst. Everyone who is looking for her is on the lookout mostly for this anomaly...and she doesn't do anything to cover her eyes up. Buy some sunglasses, buy some colored contact lenses! If you are aware that your life is in danger because of this main reason, wouldn't you do something in your right mind to cover it up?

END SPOILERS

ATE is in itself an anomaly to me. It didn't win me over, but it did manage to hook me into checking in on the next book. I will be looking for it at the library when it comes out though.

What the **** is going on? 2 juin 2014
Par Destry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Some reviews say this novel ends in a cliffhanger. It doesn't. It just stops in the middle. There's a beginning and middle, but no end in sight when it stops. A heads-up by Amazon or Audible or Ms. Plum that this was only part of a novel might have been nice before I bought it. There are some massive holes and some weak aspects of the story--Miles's motivation for searching out Juneau's in the first place is incredibly contrived--but it does have an engaging main character. Juneau is worth the price of admission. Just give me a whole book. When the next book comes out, I hope it has an ending, and the author doesn't soap opera us to death by just continuing on with a never ending story.

Sure to outshine her first series! 6 mai 2014
Par Jenna Detrapani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
AFTER THE END by Amy Plum is an road-trip survival story that’s a far cry from her previous paranormal romance series. It’s a definite step up as far as originality and adventure – and it left this reader impressed even up to the author’s signature cliffhanger ending.

I have to admit, I had not even read the synopsis of AFTER THE END before diving in. I knew nothing about what was to come. Heck, I’d gone so far to assume that it was going to be a typical post-apocalyptic adventure story – which I enjoy and was the main reason for wanting to read it. Boy, was I wrong, well, kind of… I am probably one of very few people who will be caught completely off guard by the first major “twist” (although now that I’ve read the synopsis, I see this was not a twist at all – yeah, yeah). It delivered a “woah” moment that I don’t think very many other readers will experience. Haha. I’m so silly. In hindsight I am so, so glad I did not read about the fact that nothing in the beginning of the book is real. In fact, I really wish that they had left that detail out of the synopsis altogether so that other readers could experience the same shock.

That aside, the revelation about the world Juneau has always known really isn’t the point of the story. What’s important is everything that happens after that. (Huh. Maybe this is the “After” that the title is implying.) I love, love, loved seeing Juneau’s natural world collide with that of our modern society. A major geek moment for me was reading about the landmarks she encounters in the city of Seattle. I adore Seattle and Juneau visits some locations that I am highly familiar with.

Juneau’s background is explored in great depth within AFTER THE END. Juneau is quite the enigma and I loved discovering things about her as the story progressed. She is strong, resourceful, someone I could easily be friends with… She makes decisions based on their benefit toward her cause and she is not one to react without thinking. Though some things about her past and her “people” and their ways are still a bit of a mystery, you learn so much about them within only a few hundred pages. Yes, there is a paranormal element behind her and her people, but by the end of the book I bet many readers will wonder if such a culture doesn’t actually exist. The attention to detail is that superb within this book.

On the other end of the spectrum – the “modern” side – is the male lead, Miles. Since the synopsis doesn’t say anything about him at this time, neither will I. But I will say that Miles is one of those characters that I absolutely despised at the beginning of the novel but grew to love. Early on, Miles’ maturity level left me wanting. But by the end of the book – especially at the end of the book – I found myself cheering him on. I think that says something about character progression. While his personality at the beginning made his perspective difficult to swallow, I cannot say the same as the story went on. Eventually I found myself enjoying both views equally, both Miles’ and Juneau’s.

It’s kind of funny. Almost immediately after Juneau and Miles came together in the story, my mind instantly compared them to Dallas and Leeloo in The Fifth Element. She is the mysterious girl with an unusual past and he is her disgruntled guide. Her naivety and innocence matches that of Leeloo. His likability and attitude was at the same level as Dallas. As their journey continues, the two characters clash and connect with each other in memorable ways. It also helps that the book is told in the alternating perspectives of both Juneau and Miles. We get to see both sides of their story and things are unveiled as they each make their own discoveries and are put through trials both together and separately.

I never found the pacing or the story faltering as I read. Road-trip novels and I tend to “click”, so I think AFTER THE END definitely had that in its favor. Another thing I should mention is that I began and completed this novel all in one sitting while making a long flight across the U.S. I gobbled up the pages as though they were a Thanksgiving feast, and when I finished I was left begging for seconds.

A word of warning: AFTER THE END has a killer cliffhanger.
Just be prepared…

Pros:

- What a step up in both originality, characters and writing for this author! This second series is sure to outshine her first!
- Juneau is a strong and resourceful character that I can easily get behind.
- The dual perspectives maintain balance the scales between the two sides, allowing the reader to more easily see both sides of the story.

Cons:

- The cliffhanger. Pure. Torture.
- I kind of wanted to understand the modern side of the story more at this point. But this is likely to come. Juneau’s culture is so perfectly fleshed out, I was easily able to excuse the lack of world building provided for the modern side.
- Miles was a difficult character to follow in the beginning.

AFTER THE END will already have a legion of readers begging to devour its story thanks to the author’s previous release. Plus, new readers will appreciate the more accessible story and characters. There is plenty of romance and paranormal elements to satisfy existing fans and plenty of adventure to satisfy the new. I am more of a fan of the author after reading this book and I eagerly await what is to come.

Wonderful YA Thriller 6 mai 2014
Par Farrah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
What would you do if literally everything you knew was built on a lie? That's exactly what happens to Juneau and the story only starts there. For there, she deal with secrets, lies, kidnapping, drugs, but, lucky for her, also some romance with a boy hiding his own secrets. It was all completely wonderful. After the End was thrilling, romantic, and a fantastic YA read. I really enjoyed reading this wild ride of an unpredictable book.

Juneau was in a very difficult situation. Her entire world was turned upside down and she was left trying to find her family and trying to uncover the truth. She was very strong and very loyal to those she loved. She was clever, tough, and definitely a force to be reckoned with. My one issue with her was that she was also a bit conceited. She was often condescending to Miles and that was irritating. Overall, though, I really liked her.

Miles was wonderful. He had secrets of his own and, though he seems flippant and shallow on the surface, you wouldn't do well to underestimate him. When it was most important, he was strong and clever and determined. He was also very sweet and absolutely hilarious. He was out of his element and his observations made me laugh. I adored him. I thought he was wonderful.

The romance was great. Juneau and Miles were sweet together. Despite their wariness of each other and the secrets the both held, their feelings for each other were always clear. And, these two made a totally bad ass team. They were a wonderful couple.

I had a few problems, though. Most of them were just that I needed more explanation. I had a lot of questions that weren't answered. For example, how did an entire group of people live under the illusion that the world was a post-apocalyptic landscape outside of their oasis? How is it that no one from the outside saw them? How was it that, despite growing up completely separate from modern society, Juneau was able to figure it out with almost no problems? I know she had books about life in the 1980's but the world changed an awful lot between then and now. All that just didn't quite fit, so it did take away from the book. But, it wasn't a deal breaker, because I still really enjoyed the book.

The plot was fast paced. There were some slow parts, but I was hooked for most of the way through. There were tons of thrills that kept me on the edge of my seat, as well as secrets that I never saw coming. The truth behind the "post-apocalyptic" village and how it connected to Miles' father was a huge surprise that blew me away. The dept of the deception was astounding. And, after that ending, I'm dying to find out what happens next.

After the End was a fantastic YA read. It had everything you could want in a book: romance, thrills, secrets, lies, and an ending that left me wanting more. I really loved this amazing book. Lovers of YA romance, this is a book you don't want to miss.

So conviently dull 6 août 2014
Par Azul - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Things in this book are absolutely too convinient. I never got the sense of danger Juneau was in. And I never got the sense of... like, primitiviness in which the tribe lived. Maybe we needed more about this before jumping to civilization so quickly.

And is it me or Juneau's skills with the bow and whistle was a little to Katniss like?

So Juneau lives her secluded tribe and comes to civilization to look for her people (who were taken away, duh!). Is she shocked to see that the world didn't end as she was told? Not really. She asks about the supposed WWIII to confirm what she suspected: the end of the world was a lie. I never got a sense of shock from Juneau; she seemed to accept rather too fast that her tribe wasn't the only people left on earth.

Even more, she goes shopping at Gap, gets a hair curt from a beauty parlor.... I mean, for someone who's being living in the wilderness all her live and doesn't know anything about civilization, Juneau got used to civilization too fast.

She even knew that she was being tricked into selling some piece of jewelry at a price too low. Okay, she kind of sensed the guy wasn't to be trusted but, where did you get the sense of the worth of money from?

Maybe the author should watch the first episodes of the T.V. series Sleepy Hollow to learn a little about how "uncivilized" people react when faced with civilization.

All in all, the convinience of events bored me to death. Milles (the love interest) was there to fill out pages. The the predictable romance didn't help the book.

I must say the end was... rather different. Ah! and Jenaou's ability was cool too.
