Post apocalyptic perfection: The Walking Dead, as reimagined by Shonda Rhimes.


💜 SLF's revisits the Until the End of the World universe to follow Cassie's brother, Eric. We're also introduced to Sylvie. If you enjoyed that first series, you are almost certain to love this one.

🧡 Somehow, SLF manages to recreate the magic. Part of it is the successful character creation. Sylvie is just as quirky as Cassie, but in her own way and I love her relationship with her best friend, Grace. And Eric being Cassie's brother meant I was immediately invested in his story. Actually, because Cassie had talked about him, I was pre-invested (is pre-invested a thing? Yep Just goog'd it and it is but not the same way I meant it).

💛 Ooh, plus there are crossovers, which makes my geeky heart happy.


🎧 I don't know whether this was a choice or just a sign that SLF had gone up in the world, but we have not one, but two narrators in this series. Welcome Luke Daniels, Therese Plummer, we are so happy to hear you. Daniels is great as Eric - friendly, funny, got that self-deprecating thing down. And Sylvie is brought to life by Plummer as the quirky, lovely weirdo I would have imagined her to be.


No spoilers for this one. Maybe next time!

From the universe of the Until the End of the World series. (Note: The City Series can be heard before or after the Until the End of the World series)

Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in.

Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier and likelier, and finding his sister may be his only prospect for survival - if he can make it home.

Sylvie doesn't need more than food, water, and shelter. Eric wants only to find his sister. But sometimes what we think we need isn't what we need at all, and what we find is more than we expected.
