About the Book

Locked up safely behind the walls of their glamorous beach resort, our survivors have grown comfortable, almost forgetting that the undead are still on the prowl in the streets below. But when the group loses one of their own under mysterious circumstances, they begin to question whether or not staying at the resort is their best option.

Friends turn on one another and once again, the group finds themselves back on the apocalyptic streets of Haven, battling the dead. The biggest threat yet emerges and a traitor is revealed, proving once and for all that the flesh hungry creatures infesting the city are not the group’s greatest foe.

Will our survivors be able to make it out alive one last time?

The final book in The Breadwinner Trilogy is a non-stop, post-apocalyptic race to the finish line. Murder, lies, captivity, and a seemingly never ending onslaught of the dead are just some of the challenges our group will face.

Fates hang in the balance but one thing is certain: the end of the world is not glamorous, and All Good Things must come to an end.

 

My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

 I listened to the first two books in this trilogy, The Breadwinner and Haven, and I was thrilled when Stevie Kopas sent me the next book, All Good Things, to review. Because of the way the last book ended, I was dying to get into this one.

This book starts where Haven left off with the death of one of the main characters, Juliette. Since she had some mental problems, the group believes that she committed suicide, but we know that Michelle pushed her off the balcony.

All of the characters are complex and well developed. A lot of this book is devoted to Michelle, who is a psychopath. She is truly evil. She even coaxes a woman to commit suicide. Yes, the woman was a sex slave and lived in the worst conditions imaginable, and death was probably her best option, but Michelle enjoyed encouraging her and watching her kill herself.

All Good Things was a good ending to the trilogy. It was full of suspense and I wondered if all of the survivors were going to be killed off by the end. Whether they did or they didn’t I won’t say, but it was a fitting end.

I definitely recommend All Good Things if you like reading about zombies. I do suggest reading the first two books, though, before reading this one.

Book Review: Haven by Stevie Kopas

20809918Title: Haven (The Breadwinner Book #2)

Author: Stevie Kopas

Genre: Post Apocalyptic

Publication Date: July 9, 2015

About the Book

The end of the world is not glamorous. The survivors of The Breadwinner have barely escaped the clutches of the undead and are headed into the unknown, continuing their never ending search for solace in the post-apocalyptic landscape they were suddenly thrust into. The city of Haven, once a paradise for the living, but now crawling with the flesh hungry creatures they try so hard to elude, could be their only chance. Resume your post-apocalyptic survival adventure with Veronica, Samson and Ben as they struggle with hope and loss, and as they battle the futility of existence. Take on a new experience as you find yourself once more at the beginning, thrown into the depths of the end of the world with new survivors. Join Michelle and Lulu, ordinary women faced with extraordinary obstacles on their devastating journey and the pursuit of sanctuary in a world collapsed.

Haven continues the story of The Breadwinner with the addition of new territory, new characters, and new complications. The second book in The Breadwinner Trilogy will leave you stunned and bloodthirsty for the conclusion of the series. Who you once were still does not determine who you will become in the face of catastrophe, especially in Haven.

 

My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

 I listened to The Breadwinner, the first book in this series, and was looking forward to listening to the next book, Haven. I wasn’t disappointed.

The same characters are in the beginning of Haven. They had survived the apocalypse in The Breadwinner and are now on a boat not sure where they’re headed until they reach Haven. They meet Gary and he seems to have the perfect set up so they decide to stay.

All of a sudden, Part 2 came along and there were brand new characters and it was the beginning of the apocalypse all over again. I didn’t think I was going to like going back but for this story, it worked well.

I didn’t care for Michelle or Lulu, the main characters in Part 2. Lulu was sweet, but a doormat. I knew Michelle was a bitch from the first time she opened her mouth. Once the apocalypse hit, she proved to have the skills to keep her and Lulu alive but she lacked social skills.

I haven’t decided if I like the ending of Haven or not. I don’t believe in spoilers so I’ll just leave it at that.

I definitely recommend Haven and I’m looking forward to the third book in the trilogy. I have to find out how it ends!!

Book Review: The Breadwinner by Stevie Kopas

Author: Stevie Kopas

Genre: Post Apocalyptic

Publication Date: March 17, 2015

About the Book

The end of the world is not glamorous. In a matter of days the human race was reduced to nothing more than vicious, flesh hungry creatures. This three part story takes you into the world of the survivors, coming from different generations and different sides of the tracks, they all share one thing in common: who you once were can no longer determine who you will be in the face of catastrophe.

Samson, a once wealthy and powerful criminal defense attorney struggles to keep his family safe and keep his sanity intact when the world comes apart at the seams. Veronica, the high school track star races to get her brother out of the city and into the safety of Franklin Woods. Along the way we come across the struggles of finding solace, finding out who you really are, and making decisions in a post apocalyptic world. The Breadwinner is a three part story and the first book in a planned series that will leave you craving more.

 

My Review

I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

I’ve always said that I’m not a fan of zombies but I think I’m going to have to change that to I’m not a fan of zombie movies and TV shows, because I have liked all of the zombie books I’ve read or listened to recently. The Breadwinner is a good example.

The story starts as a virus is spreading and there are quickly few people left unharmed. There are definitely more undead than dead which causes many tense situations as the survivors try to make their way to the bay to get away from the undead as well as the carnage.

There are several characters but I was able to keep them all straight, which isn’t always easy for me. Stevie Kopas did a good job at describing and naming them. Most of the characters I either really liked or really disliked with no middle ground. The exception to that was Samson, the breadwinner, whom I had mixed feelings about. He is a complicated character and is strong in some ways but excruciatingly weak in other ways.

The narrator did a good job. His voice was clear and I was able to distinguish the different characters by his voice.

I definitely recommend The Breadwinner and I can’t wait for the next book in the trilogy!
