Title: Until the Beginning
Author: Amy Plum
Series: After the End #2
About: When Juneau’s clan disappeared, she lost so much more than her friends and family. She soon discovered everything she thought she knew about her life was a lie. Her people’s gifts were actually secret abilities that others wanted, desperately enough to kidnap an entire village.
Juneau and her new companion Miles’s cross-country journey to find her clan has led them to a game preserve in New Mexico. Now Juneau’s people are finally within reach, and she will stop at nothing to save them. But she has a target on her back too, because unbeknownst to her she is the key to unlocking everything. To rescue her people – and herself – Juneau must discover what she, and her abilities, are truly capable of.
My Thoughts: I was very excited to get to read this book, as I’d loved After the End. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next!
Until the Beginning by Amy Plum, well, let me say that I love the title. I love how it goes with the first book’s title! And the cover is equally beautiful. The story is fast-paced and very interesting. And it’s a fast read. I enjoyed seeing how Juneau and Miles handled obstacles they faced, and I loved seeing things from each of their perspective.
My only complaint was that it’s a bit predictable. I knew well before it was revealed just what the key to everything was, why Juneau was so important. So far as other events? Not quite as predictable. While I wouldn’t say there are all that many huge — and by huge I mean unexpected — surprises, there was plenty of new happening. As Juneau learns the truth about her clan and her family, those details were very intriguing — and not at all something I saw coming.
If you enjoyed After the End by Amy Plum, don’t miss this fantastic sequel. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be pleased with the way it played out and satisfied with the conclusion. (I’m calling it a conclusion, because I’m not aware of plans for another book in this series. The way this ends, it very well could be the end of the story.)
