Blurb (from Goodreads):
The thrilling conclusion to In the After, the survival story of Amy and Baby, set in a near future where Earth has been overrun by vicious, predatory creatures.
It’s been three months since Amy escaped New Hope, and she’s been surviving on her own, like she did in the After. Until one day, her former fellow Guardian’s voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear: Dr. Reynolds has Baby.
Now it’s a race against time, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy must make her way to Fort Black, a prison-turned-survivor-colony, where she will need to find Ken, Kay’s brother. He alone holds the key to Baby’s survival.
One small slip-up on this quest could spark a downward spiral that would not only cost Baby and Amy their lives, but threaten the very survival of the people in the After.
My rating: 3.38 of 5 stars

Amy is alone again, and although she has the emitter to keep the floraes away, she’s far from safe.
Can Amy survive alone? And will she ever see her family again?
This was an interesting story, but again, it did drag a bit.
I liked Amy in this story. She was more confident, more kick-ass, and more determined than ever to save those she loved. She was a little quick off the mark at points, and a little narrow minded too, thinking only of one thing rather than the bigger picture, but she wasn’t quite as stupid as she was in the first book!
The storyline in this was okay, but it did drag. I felt like the one little stop-off that Amy was supposed to be making at Fort Black turned into the main event of the book, which once again slowed the story down.
There was some romance, and I have to admit to being pleased that Amy started liking a new boy – Jacks, as I liked him a lot more than Rice.
The ending was pretty good, and certainly gave the impression that human’s had hope for taking back the world from the floraes! At last!
Overall; good story, but the pace was a bit too slow,
6.75 out of 10.
