World For The Broken
By: Elexis Bell


I bet you, at some point in the last couple of months, have thought, however briefly, about the end of the world. How? By pandemic? Nuclear weapons? EMP? What would you do to survive? In World For The Broken, civilization destroyed itself via WWIII, frighteningly plausible. I'm glad there are no zombies because I'm

Funny thing about the apocalypse, that. It brings out what's hiding underneath the surface.

Dark, disturbing, gut-wrenching and brutal. Just as the apocalyptic world it describes.

World for the Broken is not a book for the faint of heart. Both due to the themes it portrays, as well as its raw descriptions.
Here, within the pages of this book, Elexis Bell brings out the worst in human nature. It lays it all out for the whole world to see. Without any coddling or filter. Straight out and brutal,

I’m really into post-apocalyptic books right now. Go figure, lol!
I feel like it’s homework in a way :-)

Elexis Bell is a ‘new to me’ author and when I was asked if I wanted to review this book I was all for it.
It’s really good! It’s dark and thought-provoking at a time when all of us have considered what we would do and how we would cop

I love apocalyptic books, they are intriguing and interesting and if there is ever one available, then I want to read it ASAP. World for the Broken was a pleasant surprise that I REALLY enjoyed reading! The author does a great job of drawing you into the world with giving just the right amount of details to have you intrigued and caring for the characters. There are emotions and situations that will hit you and could be a trigger warning, but it was strategically done!

I was absolutely blown away

World for the Broken by Elexis Bell

Bombs dropped
Disease raged
People died
Some survived
Evil thrived
Life changed
Some had it better
Some did not

What would YOU do to survive?
Would you risk your life to help save someone else?
This story was dark and gritty but filled wit hope.

What I liked:
* The theme, story and writing – it drew me in and kept my attention from beginning to end
* The way it made me think, “What if?”
* That the darker more gritty bits were not glossed over but dealt with in realistic wa

I find the book to be well-written. As the opening tale unfolded in the dark apocalypse world, I was glad that it was as dark and gritty as it likely would be when people fight over what is left. It no YA girl romance. Its hard core. The overall story is nothing new, but what is belongs to the main character. She witnessed the death of her parents at the hands of attacker before the world ended and that has carried through. As I said this is what gives the story its own perspective. Just because ...more

I’ve never heard of this author, but I am so glad that I came across her on Booksprout. Otherwise, I’m not so sure I would have found this story on my own, sifting through Amazon.

I absolutely loved all of the main characters and hope Jackson and Karen get their own book soon!

Grammar/Editing - I only noticed a few grammar errors, but it didn’t detract from the book at all.

Plot - Very well written and thought out. I didn’t notice any plot holes.

Length - Ended at location 3481 on my Kindle. Nice an

It took me a few chapters to get into this book but I did and overall liked it. It has gruesome scenes and it's a dark world Christian and Chloe live in, but with hope at the end of the tunnel. After an apocalypse the best and the worst of people can come out and in this book they are depicted as a safe community with people who are sustaining themselves and working together while on the other hand the big city is controlled by a psychopath and his followers. The writing is clear, the action sce ...more

I wanted more! This wraps up with a HEA but I'm hoping some of the characters will get a chance to tell their story. I sorta kinda got attached to them.

I liked the way the foundation was set for the story line and how the character's personality traits were explained. We were transported to the past pre-apocalypse and given snippets of history in the form of cast members' memories.
This was done almost flawlessly easy to follow and definitely had an emotional impact on me when it came to how I co

This book was literally a breath of fresh air!
In a post-apocalypse a family tries to escape a murderous gang. After a blizzard the gang catches up and everyone is cast into their different roles of this book.
You follow three characters in this book and you grow so attached.
It’s full of twists and turns and hardships.
It’s exactly how you would imagine the post-apocalyptic world. People with real problems. Even the things we take for granted now plunged into nothing. People with problems before

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I really love this heroine she’s got some inner strength. The hero Christian was very loyal to his family, most people would have just gone on about their life. He truly cared.The warning at the beginning of the story says “ If your easily upset then don’t read this book”. I guess I’ve been reading too many dark books. I was not upset at all. I loved the cover. it stopped me in my tracks. It was a nice change that this wasn’t about zombies. I felt ...more

This is the epitome of a Post Apocalyptic novel. Elexis Bell has done a fantastic job of highlighting the characters and their personalities and motives.

This story had a lot of heart and a lot of action. Both Christian and Chloe are each wonderful leads in their own rights. While being easy to understand and be captivated by, they each had their own issues and challenges to overcome.

Plenty of twists and turns, drama, and much more along the way. I am glad I took this journey with Chloe and Chr

Oh my! I was not expecting this book to be this good. Just when I thought the book was already wonderful, it became even more so with twists towards the end that completely blew me away.

I was captivated by the story the action and wanting to know what happened next. This book took my mind through highs and lows. This author has great description of the action scenes I could imagine everything that was happening. It was a fresh unique story.

I would definitely recommend this book.

This is the first book I've read from Elexis Bell and I would read more of her stuff.

This story drew me straight in. The world building is so imaginative. Tbe story is fast-paced and exciting.

The characters interweave with each other so you get to know every character.

This book ended on a HEA but I am hoping the writer will explore some of the other characters and give them their own stories.

I was blown away by the quality of writing! I enjoyed that the setting was a few years after the apocalypse. The characters had a depth to them that I found very human and real. My heart was definitely pounding during the action scenes and the storyline was not predictable. One of my favorite parts was the ingenuity of using non-working vehicles as greenhouses. Genius! Can’t wait to see what she writes next!

This is my first time reading this author and she has done a wonderful job with this book. I loved the story, it’s one of survival and holds no punches. Great characters that are very well written and easy to picture. A fantastic story.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Christian wakes during the middle of the night to the sound of snow crunching just in time to see his little brother’s lifeless body lying next to him. He watches as he is fading into unconsciousness as his sister-in-law and nephew is taken away by their attackers.

Later Christian awakens to a pretty face staring down at him and attending to his wounds. The pretty face staring down at Christian was Chloe. Chloe is a 27-year-old woman who went through of tragedy of her own a while back. Chloe was
