Jordan and Alissa made it out of Portland, away from ground zero where The Fever still rages on. But they couldn't beat the quarantine. Now barriers are being built and the remaining survivors of the outbreak are trapped.

And the undead just keep coming.

The wave of infected is building as city after city is devoured. As they head east into the mountains they will be forced to fight both the dead and the living as they search for a safe place to weather the storm.

But what they believed would be the death of them might actually save them, and in this hell on Earth they'll uncover something even more shocking than the risen dead. Hope.

In the End (Quarantined, #2)My Review
In The End by Tracey Ward  

Grab your weapon of choice as we continue to brave the wilderness, other humans and the zombies alongside Jordan, Alyssa and Syd as they fail to beat the race out of the quarantine zone and find themselves facing more danger, more zombies and an accident that could mean the end of Jordan.

In the End is the second and final book of Tracey Ward’s Quarantined series. Jordan shares his view of what is happening with a totally natural “guy tone.” Relying more on the interaction of each character and those around them, there is less zombie bashing and gaining more insight to the mechanics of the relationships that have formed. Alyssa is skating on the edge of a precipice as she needs more medication to keep her focused on their reality and the ever-growing tension between the three of them. Her meds are dwindling quickly, and a fresh supply is nowhere to be found. Syd is determined to play the Father card and lets Jordan know at every opportunity how unworthy of Alyssa he is. When they arrive at a safe haven, life should be easier, but it actually seems to plunge a bigger wedge between Jordan and Alyssa. Can they survive in a town that is like a beacon to the zombies? Scientists work feverishly to find a cure, but will it come in time?

Travel through Jordan’s heart and mind to see the inner chaos that runs rampant among his thoughts in this detailed read of emotion, danger and almost giving up. It was amazing how differently I felt about others when they are seen through another’s eyes. Great reading, amazing writing and a world that feels a little too real for comfort.
