5 ' ugly sobbing because heart-breaking' stars !!

Wow ... just .... wow ! I don't think I've cried , flat out sobbed , this much ever since I read God-Shaped hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo .. And they are very different books with very different endings mind you . Let me make this clear . Its not the end that I've cried over . Although yes , the ending did leave me wanting more , so much more . I cried while I was at the 30-40% , then I cried , no wait , I ugly cried with snot running down from my no

It's here!! The final installment in the Broken World series!! I have such mixed feelings about this because I LOVE these characters, and I hate to see them go, but Mary managed to give us an extremely satisfying end to their journeys. (NOTE: Mary has said that, while this is the last in the series for now, she may revisit our friends sometime in the future. And she managed to wrap the story up beautifully while still

The finale to this epic zombie series. Vivian and the group have been through so much they found bits of happiness here and there and occasional safety but they have lost along the way especially people. Finding some of them again brings back the hope that things could get better especially with the news Ginny and Jon share when they find them in Hope Springs.

Is it possible that Angus could be the answer to finding vaccine for the virus? When it all comes down to it though will he even want to h
*cries in sadness cause this series is finished*

Survival of the fittest. Apocalyptic Romance. Heartbreaking Loss. Hope. Terror.

WOW. I seriously loved this series. I literally picked "Broken World" -Book #1- up without having read the blurb. Just looked at the cover and thought.. "Hmm ..This looks interesting". I didn't even know there was zombies. Ugh. The horror of it all. This moment is a lil bittersweet - Happy i picked "Broken World" to read and getting to know Viv, Axl, Angus and the gang

This series will be hard to beat!

This entire apocalypse series was/is the best zombie story I have read. And I have read many of them. All of the characters are believable, well liked, but also missed as they die throughout the series. The main characters, are portrayed as strong individuals, and really stand out as special people, taking risks to save themselves as well as the rest of the group. Thank you Kate L. Mary for creating such a wonderful dystopian zombie apocalyptic series.
I was so excited when I started reading this! And again Kate L. Mary did it again.
But almost halfway through I thought NOOO no way and later in the book again NOOO OMG
this was so so good I wished that I could read it al over again.
Like it was the first time!
(At some point I definitely will do that).

Thank you Kate for this amazing serie. I love / loved reading them!

It's hard saying goodbye to a group of best friends when you or they move on, and that's what I feel like I'm doing here. I have loved this series from the beginning. And what a thrilling ending to an exciting and amazing series!
The group of survivors, now otherwise lovingly referred to as "the family", heads from Colorado to Atlanta, Georgia, since they have learned that Atlanta has built a walled town like in Hope Springs, yet even more advanced. Better yet, the CDC (Center for Disease Control

So - pretty satisfying ending. Angus basically stole the show. I liked that Angus became a decent guy but I had a problem with the way he went from being one type of guy to being a big ol creampuff without addressing some of his worst moments. I felt like the author just kind of gradually turned him around and it wasn't quite enough for me. If he had just been your run of the mill rude and condescending asshole it would have been fine. He was a bit worse than that though. In the first b

I love this series! Book 6 didn't disappoint! I cried and got angry and cried some more..what more could you ever want from a book that makes you feel what the characters do. I was so sad to reach the end..I wasn't ready for it to end.

Hated how Angus was handled

This was a pretty good ending to the series, but the Angus ending was done badly and seemed pretty abrupt and senseless. It had bad timing. He deserved better I thought. It appeared tacked on and unemotional. Just weird.

Excellent ending to an excellent series... kinda sad that it has ended, but everything does get tied up quite nicely
Another good book in this series. Sad though. I enjoyed the epilogue - nice, hopeful vibe.

Jul 30, 2017 rated it it was amazing
Easily the best-written of the series so far. The emotional scenes have more punch (in my opinion) than any of the others in the books before. When we lose characters in this one, it feels more like ever before like cohesive parts of the plot, rather than "I guess it's time to thin the herd". The ending felt like it could use a few more pages or something...a little more finality. Maybe I'm just picky about endings.

I know there are other books in series/setting, and I'll get to them at some poin

Yup, tense is a good word for this book! Every moment thought their journey, they have to remain on high alert. It’s tough enough just surviving the zombies, but they also have to survive their companions. (Dax, I’m looking at you.) It’s a rough way to travel.

Vivian and Axl are strong in this book. I love how low the angst is in these books! Angus has become a character that I’m quote attached to, there a lots of heartbreaking and heartwarming moments involving him.

Exceptional (well, if you don't count the careless mistakes in the book). I have so grown to love this "family" as they strive to survive. Anyone who has gotten this far in the series knows that it is great! Don't read this book, though, unless you've read the previous books in the series. I cried. A lot! (Kate, do you need a proof-reader?)

What a series I still have book 7 to read but wow I have loved this series it is definitely ones I have ever read!!!! The Characters are very believable.. The main characters are so strong and I have to admit this one made me cry a lot I felt like I was losing a family member I have grown that fond of these characters.

I cried like a baby at the end of this book. We loose one of our original characters! I was holding my breath in so many places in this book. Love, loss, and hard choices leave the characters battered physically and mentally as they fight to make it to Atlanta. I can't wait to see how things go down in the next one!!

I am super angry and sad with the end of this sixth book. Even with everything we have gone through so far, this one thing hit me the hardest. Can't say what specifically without a spoiler. But this is a fantastic apocalyptic series and I am off to book seven now.

Great conclusion

Honestly, it was a great conclusion, but not what I was expecting. As with most of the books in this series, you're pulled through the entire gamut of emotions. I'm hoping book seven will answer some questions that remain.

Can't tell you why I said no. You have to read and find out for yourself. This is an awesome series. The characters are people you will fall in love with. This series will make you laugh and cry along with shivering in your shoes we then you feel their fear.

What makes a really good book? These are some of the things: a believable plot, a pace that keeps you turning the pages, characters you feel you know, and care about, situations that affect your emotions. Forgotten World has all of these; it's the best in this series.

Vivian, Axl and the gang set out to get their one hope, the virus-immune Angus, to Atlanta, where the CDC are working on a cure. The road trip is hazardous beyond their expectations, and people get lost on the way. There were three

This series. It's done?! Seriously?

I feel like I've lost some of my best friends finishing this series. And let me tell you, I cried THREE FUCKING TIMES reading this story. So much hope, so much loss, so much change and adventure.

These characters have been brilliant since book one, and I am a HUGE fan of this series. There really isn't anything like it.

But be careful, because the action is off the charts insane, so much so that I sweat through my damn shirt and held my breath way, way too much.

I just finished the last book , and just let me say that I really enjoyed reading all six. Do not hesitate to jump into this will be well worth your time. You will laugh, cry, and have you nerves rattled in each and every one. Thank you Kate L. Mary so such great characters and such fantastic writing!! I can't wait to read more of your work.

Great Series

I think this is the first zombie book that has gotten me so involved with the characters that I actually had a few tears in my eyes on 3 occasions. I was actually rooting for a character that I thought of as a big jerk by the time the story came to an end.
