End Dayz is an interesting look into the lives of the secondary characters in Mortality (book one of The Hitchhiker Strain series) just as everything starts going to hell. I enjoyed the four short stories written in letter and journal format from each character as they reached out to their loved ones amidst the chaos. While it was sad and their fear was evident, it was still nice to gain a few answers and learn what led the different groups to the setting they are in at the beginning of Mortality. I enjoyed Zack’s perspective the most, as he is a favorite of mine. All in all, I don’t think this is a must-read, and it was not as enjoyable for me as Mortality. I’d much rather have the next book, Duality, and pick up where we left off in book one.
My Rating: ★★★I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
