Such are the questions and troubles featured in Outlasting After. Add in the dynamic personalities, along with a brewing mystery of both future and past - and you have a dystopian novel that asks more questions than it answers. In fact, just when it seemed we were getting somewhere, the book ends, leaving a dangling cliffhanger and a bucket full of angst.
A woman does basically end up in a relationship with more than one person. So those men share her, and I'm normally not for it in books because they make it seem so easy and natural when it wouldn't normally go like that in real life or even in the scenarios in the book. But I do feel like it was more acceptable given the situation presented in the book, like the "end of the world" and "potentially last woman in the world" thing. I also feel like it was more realistic because how the characters handled it. They weren't just instantly okay with it and fine with one second her being all over one and then another second all over the other one. Things like that.

I’ve had this book knocking around on my kindle for eons. I saw an ad for it and realised I already owned the book and thought “why didn’t I read this earlier?”. After reading the book, I have to repeat the question, because I was missing out.
Hannah is on her own and has been for months. She doesn’t even have shoes or trousers on, she is starving and has no memories past a few months ago. When she finds a group of men she starts following them for the scraps of food they leave at their camps after they move on.
When the men catch her she thinks that she’s going to suffer horribly at their hands so when her body gives out on her she believes that is the end for her.
She is the first woman that Cole has seen in 3 years. The world has fallen apart due to a war no one really understood. When authority was gone and the infrastructure collapsed Cole and his team of soldiers were on their own. When Cole brings her back to his camp he doesn’t understand that he just changed their world, but his best friend and second in command, Liam, does.
This is a very carefully constructed book. It slowly and carefully builds up the tension. It’s a surprisingly calm book. It’s steady and slow as the characters are revealed and the world is built. The sociological structure of their tight knit group is explored and we start to glimpse how they are all going to change with the introduction of someone new, someone who is beautiful.
It’s also quite a cerebral book. We are given clear insights into the way that the characters minds work. Hannah may not have memories past a few months but she is very canny and understands people and the way they work. Cole is very single minded and is like a charging bull at getting things done. Liam sees everything and says nothing, torn up by his own demons.
It’s a captivating book and I can’t wait to read what happens next as this one ends on a total cliffhanger, so you have been warned. But at least the next book is already out.
I was hooked and on the last page swore because I was torn from characters that grow on you.
Thankfully, I can get started on book two right away. I definitely want to know what happens next!
