Summary

The world Megan James thought she knew has been slowly unraveling. Her father disappeared and was presumed dead, her mother's sanity started to slip away, and the safe world she'd always thought she was living in slowly began to reveal its very dark and twisted depths. With the discovery that both her father and long-lost uncle, Angus James, were alive, Meg thought she'd finally learned all the secrets New Atlanta and the CDC had to offer, but she soon discovers the surprises have barely begun.  

With Jackson Star's threatening presence looming over them, Meg and her family are forced to flee the walls of New Atlanta, leaving both Axl and Donaghy, the man Meg has come to care so much about, in the CDC's clutches. Knowing that rescuing them will be no easy task, the group turns to a very unlikely source, and Meg soon discovers her long-lost uncle has more than a few shocking secrets to share. 

After two decades of living behind walls, it looks like the end of the zombies could be in sight, assuming they can break into the most fortified building left in the world. Luckily, Angus James knows exactly what to do to make it happen.  

But Angus isn't the only one with a few tricks up his sleeves. When Jackson Star suddenly decides to release Donaghy, it isn't out of the kindness of his heart. 

With the clock ticking more than ever, Meg finds herself in a race against time. Success means not only saving her family, but the whole world as well, while failure could very well mean a life of living as Jackson Star's slave.

Good conclusion

It started were the first one finished. She could have shorten it a bit, if she left out the repeated feelings or thoughts but all in all it was a good story. I liked the idea with the town from the walking dead, that was funny. The characters were very good described and you had a feeling you are in the middle of. It was pretty gripping, of course you must like this zombie stories.

A Roller Coaster Grand Finale!!

I loved this book as well as the entire series. It has so many awesome components to it that kept my attention all the way through this longer listen. This book picks up right where the last leaves off and this author keeps us on a suspenseful semi-emotional roller coaster ride. Great unique zombie story with a couple very intimate scenes. Well written strong characters that have to face some tough and disheartening challenges in an effort to overcome the CDC and the Stars.

Throughout this entire series, this narrator has just done a tremendous job! I've listened to her work before and continue to be impressed by the variety of voices she can do and maintain for expanded periods of time.

Lovely

Meg and her family have managed to flee from the controlling Stars. They formulate a plan to go back and rescue those left. Everybody is shocked when Stark decides to release Donaghy, but they quickly learn the twisted reason why he did. I never thought I would get so emotionally invested in an apocalyptic novel. I mean I enjoy them. I enjoy the outside the box universes. However, this is the first one that I have ever been fully emotionally invested in. I loved the characters. I loved the story. I loved the way the author tied this all together. The only thing I didn't like about the book is a certain part they left open. I won't divulge it because I don't want to spoil the book. But it leads a lot of questions. Is this lose thread open for interpretation? Is it the beginning of another series? Will we have to find out which is which? How long will it be until we do? I fully recommend this series/trilogy. It was very amazing. The author turned a zombie novel into something very unique and refreshing. I never really thought I'd enjoy a zombie novel, but here I am gushing over this one! I can't wait to read more by this author.

Twisted Fate

I like this series.I really do.I do have issues with the long winded repetition that Meg constantly has about,well,everything.5 hours could have been cut out by just saying it once.I also like the ladies narration done by Heather Firth.Her mens voices still make me cringe at times. I took a few breaks during this book because it was such a downer for the most part.The storyline is solid as are the characters.I am looking forward to #4 being light and sunny!lol I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Taking down Star and Jackson


Narrator: Solo performance by Heather Firth. She does a decent job performing all these characters. For a female narrator she does a believable performance of the male characters. Yet, It would be better having two narrators because there were too many characters to keep track of with one performer. Heather is good, but one person is only capable of so much. Every voice began to blend together. Imagine watching a movie where one actor performed all the character scenes in a character driven movie, that’s a task meant for a variety of performers. Did this hinder the outcome? No, but separating the male and female characters speaking would be easier to identify if voiced by different narrators.

Story: When a family sacrificed safety and lives to travel to the safe haven of New Atlanta only to find out that the CDC was just as dangerous. This is the final installment where the resistance is formed by rebellious survivors seeking justice and revenge against Star and Jackson.
These survivors would rather take a chance on the outside of the walls rather than be controlled on the inside.
All the previous characters return in this final installment. Still a character driven story with a some new characters.

Overall: I no longer go searching for zombie apocalypse books, yet when given the opportunity to listen to this series was offered I gave it a try.
I thought the attack was too easy. I expected Jackson to behave differently when attacked. I thought Meg had something special about her since Jackson had been obsessed with her, yet nothing was revealed. I was confused by some of the characters ability to survive.
If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead and remember that episode with the CDC and wanted a different understanding on what would happen if the CDC worked on a virus that didn’t cure humans but rather made them stronger, quicker, and more dangerous then this series will impress you.
I had a hard time believing the CDC didn’t have cameras inside the rooms.

Great conclusion!

Twisted Fate all is revealed while bringing everything together. I really enjoyed the ending. If you read or listened to the previous books, this is a must. The Twisted series is a great addition to the genre.

Kate L. Mary created a fantastic zombie post-apocalyptic world. The writing is excellent, with an intricate plot and intriguing characters. Heather Firth's performance deserves five stars or more. Her ability to modulate tone and pitches is exceptional, particularly for males.

Performance as in all the books in this series was spectacular, Narrator did an amazing job expressing each individual character.

Exciting wrap up!

I thought that this was a wonderful wrap up to the series. I devoured Kate L. Mary's Broken World series earlier this year and after learning that this series featured the same group of characters, I couldn't wait to get started with it. It has been great to see these characters grow and survive and I enjoyed getting to meet new characters in this series. This book really did pull everything together very well and I had a great time with it.

This is the book where things really start to happen. Angus is alive and his friends know it. They also know how much danger Axl and Donaghy are in. At this point, not only do they want to rescue their friends and loved ones but they are also looking for some revenge. If anyone deserves revenge, I think Angus does. There are several points of view in this book and it worked well since the characters were not always together or looking at the situation in the same way.

This story was really exciting. There was plenty of action and I found myself worrying about the characters. There were quite a few surprises as well. I loved getting the chance to watch this group of characters working to make the world a better place even if it cost them. I was happy that this book left me with some hope for the future and I feel really satisfied with how things were wrapped up. My only complaint with the story would be that the last part of the book felt a little drawn out but nothing that lessened my overall enjoyment.

I thought that Heather Firth did a great job with the narration. There are quite a few characters in this series and a wide range of emotions that they experience. I thought that she did a great job of giving each character their voice and bringing them to life. The narrator reads the story at a really nice pace and I feel that her performance added to my overall enjoyment of the story.

I would recommend this series to others. I do feel that this is a series that is best read in order. I love the world that Kate L. Mary has created and the characters are amazing. I will definitely be reading more from this very talented author.

Angus is free!

After twenty years of imprisonment, Angus is set free! This volume will focus on the overthrow of the Starr dynasty and the stranglehold of the CDC. Bringing the James family back together is the other focal point. There are a few sad moments and some of the key players will not survive. All in all, the closing volume is uplifting and full of hope. It is a story of hope and starting over.

I want more

Talking with the author this is the last book in the Broken World Twisted series, and that's such a disappointment. The world Mary has built, and the way Firth brings it to life is so enjoyable and fun. The story is a reasonable ending to what has been revealed but there's so much more that could be done here in this time period in this world and I'd love to have it continue.

I hope the publisher will reconsider after looking at ratings, or at least release the rights back to Mary so she can continue playing here. Either way well worth the time and a nice wrap-up of the story that was given.

I received a copy of this book at my request in exchange for a fair review.
