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.
For a long time, I stand there, watching as he lets the water wash away the remains of Atlanta.
There’s a knife on the ledge of the shower, balanced there for easy access. But his back is to me and his shoulders are stooped in, quietly exhausted. I swallow hard, and move before I can talk myself out of it. Strip quickly and quietly and step into the shower behind him.
So often, when I look at Finn, I see a creature of myth. The plague-bringer’s son. The man who fought at Kelsey’s side, the war veteran. The walker who made my brother smile every once in a while.
The man who brought the Order to heel and dragged me out of hell, who refuses to let me wallow in my grief or depression.
The one who keeps me alive.
Those are the things that are easy to see. Those are the things he wants the world—or me—to see.
