The End of Everything: Book Nine by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton

The End of Everything: Book Nine by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is another great one! They make a fantastic author/narrator team. I keep waiting for a not-so-good book to come out where I'm like meh, but it hasn't happened yet and I'm questioning if it ever will. Every book Christopher writes pulls me in and is full of fast-paced action. I recommend this book if you’ve been following the series and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? Seriously, go pick up book one. Fast-paced action, twists and turns, strong sibling relationship, character development, and more is what awaits you...

What’s it about? Book nine picks up where the previous one left off with Wren, Mila, and Robyn trying to survive the events of Inverness and attempting to make their way back to Safe Haven. A new enemy, TrueBit, comes into play. This is another fast-paced story of survival, the sister’s love & banter, and struggles. Who to trust or not to trust? Run from or kill the zombies? To fall in love or risk any feelings? What weapon to pick? So many choices…

I’m loving the dynamic Mila brings to the group. Despite the girls being in the apocalypse, there’s always a couple comments of theirs that make me smile. Another plus? You get Chapter One of Safe Haven at the end and yes, you should totally be listening to it if you haven’t.


The narrator, Kim Bretton, was fantastic as usual. I have no complaints on her narrations and I can’t imagine anyone else voicing the sisters. Kim brings something special to the story and helps make the series stand out.


I highly recommend this series and Christopher’s other series. For those who haven’t listened to any of the books, clear your schedule when you do decide to listen because they are difficult to put down.

“Everybody had to peddle in something and hate was her preferred stock.”

“People always wanted to blame someone else for their own misfortune, and if somebody could offer them a reason for all the things that were bad in their lives, they would grasp on to it with both hands and never let go.”

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: As I’ve said before with these books, this is the zombie apocalypse with not nice people doing not nice things. If you can’t handle violence, death, or like things, this is probably not the book for you. This chapter of the sisters story might hit closer to home than previous books due to the TrueBrit group- politics, religion, extremists (I will leave it at that). Language used- Sx15 in German, Sx25 in English.
