I had a great time with this book. After listening to the first three books in the Broken World series, I wanted more. I just had to know what would happen next to this group of characters. Unfortunately, only the first three books in the series have audiobooks available at this time. I didn't let that stop me and downloading the ebook for the next installment and enjoyed the experience just as much.

This is the fourth book in the Bro

Where is book 5???

Don't you just love when you find a series that you can't put down? Well, this is one of them for me but the sad part is ----- now I have to wait for the next book! :-(

I do have to add though, that by the time I got to the near end...I was ready to stop ---- I got so pissed off at Ms. Mary for something that happens...but I will stop there!

Lost World is book 4 in the Broken World Series. First off, let’s go over the two things I love about this one. We get Hadley’s POV!!!! And now everyone is in the Mountains. So it’s not just the zombies, but the cold and lack of food everyone has to be worried about.

I’m so glad that the setting has changed because I always wondered what would happen during cold temperatures. I admit I watch the TV zombie shoes like Walking Dead and Z Nation, but I never seen how zombies

Lost World is the fourth installment in the Broken World Series, but trust me, the series isn’t losing any steam. Once again, this book kept me riveted, madly turning the pages until I (sadly) got to the end.

In this installment, the gang finds a new safe haven of sorts – but if you’ve been reading these books you’ll know that nothing is truly safe in the world that Mary has created. With the threat of winter

4.2 stars ~ a bit better than 4 stars but not quite 4.5!

So many of the reviews for this series say that Kate Mary has borrowed much from The Walking Dead that I won't point out all the similarities; I thought at first that we had a guest appearance of Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones, too, aka Brady, the educated, articulate dwarf who can beat a man twice his size with verbal arrows, but he didn't turn out to be him after all, about which I was pleased! But is Hope Springs as sinister as wh

Hope is a fickle thing and after everything they have been through they have very little of it left, but what else is there to do besides try and survive?

Vivian has found herself throughout these long weeks and has become a stronger person than she ever thought she was. She suffered the loss of her daughter, but she has found Axl and a family with the survivors in her group. But everyone is worn out weeks on the road has been rough on everyone and they are suffering more each day. They need
The fourth installment in Mary's post-apoc series "Broken World", "Lost World" loses steam towards the middle of the book as the main characters stumble around a hostile environment and fumble towards a purpose. Hadley and Jon are separated from the main group for most of the story, and Vivianne and Axl continue to deal with the constant supply needs of a large group. This time the story is told from Vivianne and Hadley's perspectives, with no male voice.

I was tempted to skim in some areas, but

I love this series, so damn much. Probably one of the best zombie apoc series I've ever got my hands on.

The characters are so perfectly imperfect, that you can't help but love the creativity and complexity of them.

This story is quite a bit like the others... people die, zombies are assholes, their luck sucks terribly. There's tons of action, and TONS of new developments with the characters. Plus, you get POV change from Hadley and GINNY.

Great new characters, new setting, new problems, new love,
I fall more in love with this series with each book I read. I love Axl and Vivian. Towards the end, my heart about stopped with what happened! Looking so forward to reading book five to find out what's in store for these characters - Ginny and Jon, Axl and Vivian and the rest of their group. ...more

Loved this installment. There was a lot of action and we got inside Hadley's head a little bit, which I loved. There was more death and heartbreak and it was so suspenseful. I waited for the entire book for Hadley and Jon to be reunited with Vivian and Axl again. The ending was super dramatic and intense, but parts of it irked me too. The writer had Vivian pick a stupid fight with Axl about something that was pretty ridiculous and the writer did that at the worst time, just to cause some unneede ...more

In book 4 of the Broken World Series our group of survivors are faced with finding another "safe place" to hide out from the zombies. Though with winter upon them, the cold seems to be slowing down the walking dead. So their decision to move North was a wise one. Desperate to find medicine for a sick boy among them, members of our rag tag group are separated from the rest. Though they've lost a few of their friends when they'er over run by zombies, hopes are high that a warm shelter can be found ...more

The writing just keeps getting better. The change in setting to the snowy mountains was much needed as was the development in characters. Vivian and Axl as great as always and I'm loving the developments with Angus, Winston, Parvati and even Darla. It's really coming into its own and is far from the fan fiction style we saw in book one. I'm very impressed. The story splits through the book to focus on Hadley and Jon just as much as Vivian and Axl and whilst I love the idea of that I just don't l ...more

3.5 Stars

I liked the fact that this book contained dual points of view and two different settings because it kept things from getting bogged down too much. That being said, I would rather the additional point of view come from someone other than Hadley. To me, her thought processes were just so similar to Vivian that if not for the fact that they were in two different locations for most of the book it would have gotten boring. If it were up to me, I would have liked the additional point of view

I am dedicated to this series. And because of that I cannot rate it any lower than 4 stars.
I love it! This book set a lot up but didn't wrap them up for me in the end. (view spoiler)

So much was left open and unsaid that it frustrated me and I felt it was over too soon. Like

I loved it. it started off right where the last book left off. Lost World is told from Vivian and Hadley's point of view. They finally find a good person that has a good place to stay and there are rumors of a place called Hope Springs that are bringing people together. The ending was very sad but it also ended up being a happy one... Will Hope Springs and up being the real thing? ...more

Can't wait for book 5 to come out. I have really enjoyed this series. I really like the characters and I like that some of them are a shade of TWD.

This series has lots of good, relatable characters, lots of zombie action and personal interaction.

If you like a good zombie series you should definitely read this one.

I preordered this book because I have loved all of the others and they just keep getting better! I can't wait for the next one! As soon as I can preorder that one I will! Read this series, you won't be disappointed.

Great. Series

I read the first book in this series and thought it was good, people were how they might really act if this virus was real but the books that followed were better with each book. This Book 4 is the best so far. I can't wait for the next book to be published.
Amazing again and left me crying for more!!!!
