I wanted Andrew to suffer, and part of me thought watching his torment might be the sweetest victory I would ever experience.

Stranded hours from home and empty-handed, with Kellan on the brink of death, Regan finds herself facing the most difficult challenge yet. Their enemies are still out there, lurking in the shadows and seeking revenge, and with nowhere else to turn, s

In this 3rd installment of the OK Wastelands series, Regan and Kellan find themselves in Tennessee. They've been saved from Andrew's clutches - but how will they get back? Can they trust these people who saved them? How will they get back home?

New friends, some old friends and all the answers are found along the way.

Just about the time you think there is nothing that Kate L Mary can write that will surprise me, I stand corrected. OK Wastelands #3, The Sweetest Torment, absolutely had me guessing the entire way through of what would happen next.

In this one, Kellan and Regan are together, trying to get home to their beloved family within the bunker in the middle of OK. Traveling from TN back to OK has proven to be difficult as they, and their group of immune friends, try to avoid Andrew, an ATL kidnapper set

What would I do if he didn’t make it? I couldn’t even imagine a world where Kellan didn’t exist. It seemed too dark and horrible, even compared to the one we were currently living in.

I am beyond sad that this series is over. But I will forever love Kellan and Regan. Honestly...forever!! Their story has positively been one of my most favorite of favorites. I have cried over them, laughed along side of them and even been a bit angry a time or two over the crap they not only put each other through

The Sweetest Torment: A Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Novel (Oklahoma Wastelands, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Heather Firth is another good addition to the series (hoping it’s not the last). Recommend if you’ve been listening to this series and if not, you should def start! I had a difficult time putting this one down.

What’s it about? Kellan and Regan are back and dealing with the psycho Andrew while encountering new crazies of the religious variety (don’t worry, there’s a couple normal fo

Another great apocalyptic tale by Kate Mary. Her writing never fails me and this series is no different. I find this volume in particular, and this series in general, too be more intense and violent than we are used to from Kate Mary. Reagan is a strong female protagonist, who is Kate’s hallmark, a beautiful strong-willed young woman rushed into maturity due to the circumstances. Escaping from or avoiding one situation after another, Regan and Kellan continue their journey to Oklahoma. The Ameri ...more

This would have five stars but I felt like the whole bit towards the end with the religious cult just didn't belong in the book. It seemed to be a filler to make the book longer and didn't add anything to the plot. Otherwise, I loved how Regan turned into a strong heroine.

Excellent series, absolutely loved it! Great characters that you care about. And thanks to the author for knowing when to end it and not drag it out for another 4 or 5 books!

Great ending

Although really sad in some spots was good to see Kellan and Regan come out on top . There is lots of action and the epilogue is great . Loved this series

Regan and Kellan are trying to make their way back home to Oklahoma. They were rescued by a group of people who have been looking for Andrew and his people as well for a long time. Kellan is very sick and needs medicine to recover. Their new friends Logan and Beth may just know a way to save him or at least some people who might can.

Regan is still healing and hurting from her experience with Andrew and his group. She knows he is still out there somewhere and she intends on finding him and makin

Kate L. Mary does it again and I’m not surprised. Her writing is incredible. Every book I read by her hits all the check marks of the genre she’s writing in. The Sweetest Torment is no exception. The third book in the Oklahmoa Wasteland series.

I’ve read all three books and I am absolutely obsessed with Kellan and Regan. They were the perfect leads to this amazing book. I laughed with them, I cried (real tears by the way). It was a rough journey for these characters. I felt their pain and their j

The action pact conclusion !

Reagan and Kellan have faced their share of horror and tragedy. It never seems to get any easier. Captured by Andrew, Kellan being sick and beyond terrified about what horrors the future holds for them Reagan is surprised when they are rescued by another group. Things however never unfold thru way you expect them too and their journey home is fraught with peril and death. Their love for each other is intense and every safe moment is spent in each other's arms. Will th

Kicking butts and spitting out names

As usual I'll start by saying Kate L Mary writes the only zombie series I'll read. There's something different about her stories that just resonate with me, yes zombies can resonate. Her books have it all, sex, violence, good guys, bad guys, weirdos, and "normal" people. You just can't find a better bunch of zombies or people who are going to kill them.

The Sweetest Torment

This was a good ending to this series. I'm a post-apocalyptic world things have not been easy. The danger and excitement seems to never stop.

And the winner is...

Us! Kate has delivered a home run again. I honestly didn't think Kate could surprise me, but Andrew tripped me up. And the American Queen!! What a twist I didn't see coming. All in all a super wrap up to another great series. Thank you Kate and I look forward to what you have coming up next.

Great ending for the book. Could be the end of the series, or maybe not. Lots of action. Same great characters…some new, some old. Liked seeing Brady again. Love seeing "old" characters in Kate's books.
