Last Woman
After emerging from a coma, Faye Wills opens her eyes to complete darkness and the feeling of being trapped. Soon she discovers she is in no less than a nightmare world and awakens in the worst place imaginable. She is one of thousands of bodies in a makeshift mass grave that was once a football stadium. Left for dead. There are no signs of life and the only sound she hears is the buzzing of flies that follow the stench of death. Once out of the stadium she steps into a desolate, barren world, void of all life and people. Faye learns that while in a comatose state, the world was besieged by some sort of epidemic. Without a soul around, there are a lot of missing pieces. Where did everyone go? What really happened? Though in a weakened state, she must pull it together and move forward. She focuses on a goal of finding not only answers but survivors. However, the further she moves in her journey, the more Faye realizes that she may never find anyone and must face the very scary and real possibility that she may not only be the last woman on earth, but the last person as well.

    This two book series was really good to me. I almost got upset because the heroine kept getting on my nerves but the author wanted that to happen. I'm so glad I waited to read book two before rating book one because I got it after a minute. The author had to place emphasis on the heroines negative characteristic in order to highlight her growth as a woman who lost much and almost drowned in her grief to what she became after it was all said and done. Loved the Hero. Squeaky clean story for all y This two book series was really good to me. I almost got upset because the heroine kept getting on my nerves but the author wanted that to happen.

Loved the Hero. Squeaky clean story for all you sex craved romance addicts with addictive type personalities. You may still get addicted to some of the characters in this story. It really is a sweet one with some bad thrown in for good measure. I was addicted and had no choice to nab book two right away. Imagine waking up to find you're the last person on earth, but then........

    This is a story which really starts off pretty strong. Faye awakes from a coma to find herself in a real life nightmare. Whilst she has been “absent” the world’s population has been decimated by a flu type virus and she actually wakes up in a football stadium crammed with decaying corpses. I was intrigued as to what would happen next, Was she the only person left alive? If not, who would she meet and would they be good or bad? Why did this happen?Not a bad storyline at all really, but the book i This is a story which really starts off pretty strong. Faye awakes from a coma to find herself in a real life nightmare.

Why did this happen?Not a bad storyline at all really, but the book is badly let down by the writing which reads like an unedited draft rather than a finished product. There are punctuation, spelling and grammar mistakes on most pages and at times the writing is really clunky, with whole paragraphs that took two or three reads to make sense of. One to be returned for a refund!

    Three stars mean I liked it. I liked the story very much. It left me wanting more of their adventure and more details. The ending was good and it could have a great sequel. The first chapter was very graphic with vivid descriptions of the bodies in various states of decay and I couldn't put it down. I do hope there is a sequel and I hope it has a proofreader this time. The typos were plentiful. I heartily recommend this if you like end of the world, survival, world gone to hell in a handbasket s Three stars mean I liked it. I liked the story very much.

    I really hope there is more!!!!I really hope there is more!!!!Love this genre. Could actually feel Faye's pain and depression; but was routing for her to see what could be...and she did.. I sure hope there is a sequel. When the book ended, I thought I was missing some pages.... please let there be a sequel....

    I was iffy at first when I was recommended this book. I read some of the reviews and they weren't great, and I was worried about being disappointed. After reading the book, I can honestly say I don't understand the negativity it has received. I found it very engaging and it presented characters that I found very relatable! I am looking forward to the sequel!

    What a surprise!What a surprise!I really didn't expect this book to be a great read but I found out it was one of those books you don't want to put down. I love the end of the world as we know it type books and this book was a fresh look at this scenario. I really hope this author has more coming soon and I look forward to reading her other books.

    Great Book, scary but good. It's not a horror book, but when everyone is riped out over a virus and you are all alone, it becomes scary. The whole thing will leave the hairs on your back of the neck sticking up while reading it.

    I don't want to write much about this book, not because it doesn't deserve it (it most certainly does) but because I wouldn't do it justice.All I can tell you is that this book "almost" made me cry, and I do not cry easily (I can't even remember the last time it happened). This is one deeply emotional story, less about the apocalypse and more about life itself, about strength, weakness, hitting rock bottom, and that fundamental thing that is being human. This story is so human...

Joy Nash narrates so beautifully you cannot help but feel, and believe me... there is a lot to feel on this journey.Please, give it a chance, because it deserves at least that.

    New take on the apocalypseStarting with the horror of being mistaken for dead, Faye starts as a fairly weak seeming character, but as we see more glimpses into her life we realize what a strong person she is, even if she doesn't believe it. As much as a post apocalyptic story, it is also the story of personal growth the characters go through. I look forward to going on the rest of their journey with them.

    A promising start and a good premise, but a weak end.An interesting approach to the apocalypse genre. Unfortunately The Last Woman spent too much time waiting and blindly following one of the men she encountered. There were too many coincidences as well. I am curious about the sequel, but I would have greatly preferred this to be a standalone story. My one hope is that the author will take the opportunity that book two presents to have a truly strong female lead.

    Not a bad storyI liked the plot. The descriptions were very imaginative. Found Faye hard to like because she was, in my opinion, wallowing and needed a good shake. I can understand why Dodge got frustrated with her which means the author had good character development. I look forward to the next book.

    Read it in one dayI just could not put this book down. Parts were sad, and I shed a few tears. But I really enjoyed this book. I really didn't like the main character too much, but if course she had gone through hell and was not making the right choices at times. Good ending, but I wanted more.

    I liked this book a lot. As with other books she has written, this author has a great capacity for putting you in the main character's point of view. The only reason that I could not give this a 5 star was there were enough spelling and grammar errors and a few other inconsistencies (like the radio call sign) that I felt a good editor would help. I very much look forward to Book 2.

    Is It Over?Waking in the dark with something on her she must struggle to get out of this horror. What has happened? Where is everyone? Even as the world seems to be ending here are some right shinning moments. Don't know how but she made a apocalypse story with very heart rendering moments!

    Really good almost a 5 Star The ending of this book is amazing! I have to say the author has done a great job with character development even if it is a very short book. I can’t wait to read the second one. Recommended for fans of post apocalyptic stories

    Love the different take on an apocalyptic event. Thoroughly enjoyed the fact that there were no flesh eating zombies or vampires for the survivalists to contend with they just had to find the basics,water,food,shelter and other survivors.

    Perhaps lost woman insteadI found myself e of near tears the farther I went. To lose everything important and seek out oblivion only to wake up and find everything in the world gone but find what might be hope or at least a reason for living.

    I picked up this book on a whim after it showed up on my Amazon recommendations. I like to read PA books and so a book about a plaque that wipes out most of the Earth's population is right up my alley. Besides being a PA novel about survival and picking up the pieces immediately after an apocalypse, this book explores the pain of losing loved ones and the agony of moving on and searching for the will to live when all you've cared about is lost.

Besides being a PA novel about survival and picking up the pieces immediately after an apocalypse, this book explores the pain of losing loved ones and the agony of moving on and searching for the will to live when all you've cared about is lost. Faye wakes up in a pile of dead bodies, discarded like trash after a flu epidemic kills almost everyone. Faye struggles to make sense of the world she has awakened to, having no knowledge of the events and weeks leading up to the moment she wakes-a literal Rip Van Winkle moment. Faye struggles to make her way home, but encounters a few other survivors along the way. In the midst of this apocalypse, Faye is wrestling with the demons that haunt her since she tragically lost her husband and kids in a MVA months earlier. I really enjoyed this book and I appreciate the depth at which the author delves into the psyche of the characters. This book may have been a 4 1/2 star, maybe 5 star read if it was a little longer and if it had another round of editing, but overall nicely done.

    The author has written about the human spirit, exploring frailties, inadequacies, resilience… and a load of other things that are relevant to the scenario. And although I think I’m different to Faye in a lot of ways, I think Druga has captured ‘humanness’ that many people could relate to – in full or in part, in one way or another. I’m sure all these things exist even in the absence of overwhelming disaster, but not so obvious unless all the superficiality of modern life is stripped away.

I’m sure all these things exist even in the absence of overwhelming disaster, but not so obvious unless all the superficiality of modern life is stripped away. The deeper-level journey, then, is arguably universal and confronting. Hence ‘brave’.I’ve given 5 stars because the story was gripping. There are minor annoyances, though: Word choice and grammar and punctuation throughout the novel often obscures meaning. Normally that would drive me nuts, but this time I was too engrossed. Not entirely sure about the last person found either… but who is to say that it could not happen! (I won’t spoil it for you.)Hopefully Druga has engaged a proof reader for her other works. But hopefully that reader does not make editorial changes that affect the author’s voice, because the story telling is thoroughly engaging.I loved this, and have already bought more books from this author.
