Summary

Twenty years ago, Angus James woke to find himself in a sterile room. On the other side of the locked door, doctors worked to manipulate a virus, using him as their ultimate pin cushion. 

He was supposed to be dead - and there were moments over the next two decades when he wished he was - but despite his torturous existence, he remained a fighter. Through pain, love, loss, and heartbreak, Angus traveled a road that took him on a journey much bigger than the room to which he was confined. As the world moved forward without him, he fought to hold on to as much of himself as he could, determined to make it out of his prison a whole man. 

Outside the walls of the CDC, Angus’ family worked to move on. But between the dark rumors surrounding the man in charge and a twisted new religion that threatened to turn their lives upside down, starting over has begun to seem impossible. With more and more of the freedoms being stripped away, and more devastating losses piling up around them, the group found themselves wishing they’d never set foot in New Atlanta in the first place and wondering if leaving was even an option....

Travel back with Twisted Memories and experience the emotional journey Angus James was forced to take during his 20 years as a prisoner. Discover how he came to be a father, what he did to stay sane during his long confinement, and how he managed to earn his freedom.

History Revealed!

Majority of this book in the series is giving us background to the CDC and the James'. It gives us an idea of how all the characters are related and how long the Stars have been scheming and what they've done in their efforts to get there. There are many points of view and everyone is giving us a piece of the past that I think will unravel in book 3. The author also does a fantastic job of helping us get attached to vital characters that we have only really heard of in book 1. We also experience the devastating loss for Angus and many saddening events that he experienced in captivity. It does end on a cliffhanger! I'm excited to see where this author takes this book.

The narrator does a great job on this performance just as she did in previous performances for this series. I am still impressed with her ability to maintain a deeper voice for this series compared to other books I've heard her narrate. I think she has done an excellent job bringing these words to life and drawing us in to want to keep listening.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

I'm Hooked

Angus is locked in CDC against his will. He is immune to the virus that has taken over the world and the doctors at CDC want to know why. They want to see if they can use the immunity to their advantage They are developing something that nobody will ever see coming. I have to be honest. When I first started this book, I was annoyed. I didn't understand why we were starting from the beginning. I felt like it was a waste of time. Then I got invested in it. I realized that this book subtly feels holes in the first story that only flash backs would fill. It answered questions that could not have been answered any other way. There was nothing I didn't like about this book. Unless you count on my emotions being thrown from one end of the spectrum to the other. There were things I'd wish had been explained a little better, but they were minor. Maybe some time gaps could have been pronounced a little better too, but nothing major. I fully recommend this book. I recommend reading the first book first. Probably even the novella as well. I can't believe how invested I've become in a trend I always thought a little too repulsive. Maybe it's because it's spun under a different light. Either way, I'm enjoying it and can't wait to read the rest of the books.

What a Journey 5☆'s

WoW!!! I’m so excited for the last instalment of the series, fast paced all way. I love how this book does exactly what it says in the title... It takes us back over the 20 years that Angus has been in the CdC... and what a journey. Kate L Mary has managed through the skill of her writings to turn my mind and heart around.... Angus is so loved by me now. I don't want to give any spoilers but this book is beautiful, Pain, power, love, hate, greed, realisation, rebirth, growth, birth, death, life, fear, frustration, sorrow, joy... all within the words of this book is beauty. I just love it! The storyline will have you gripped... greed and insanity... power and prestige... Mary has done it again. The Broken World Series has become an epic journey from an amazingly epic mind.
I really believe this book wouldn't have hit the spot as well as it did if Heather Firth was not the narrator... Heather Firth has performed this beautifully. The characters and projection is just right. I believe and like the characters. I could listen all day... actually I did.. 5☆'s + for the narration. I don't believe I would have enjoyed the book as much without the rich warm relaxing voice plying in my ear buds. fantastic!!!

Definitely twisted!

I enjoyed this book very much and can’t wait for the final book in the series. The story is definitely very twisted or at least tells the story of twisted people which I love not sure where some people come up with this but I love it.
I definitely recommend this book. The narrator Does an excellent job on the story

Apocalyptic

So many answers to the first book but so many more questions I want answered. I really want to see the bad guys get what is coming to them maybe in the next book. It is great to see love Bloom in all the ugly chaos.

Wow! Twisted is just one way to describe it

At first, I didn’t know what to think of the memories. Was it going somewhere or just going on about the past. But every turn of a chapter was a new discovery, a new twist in this story of the James family and the twisted mastermind and his son Jackson. I enjoyed knowing where Glitter came from and backstage stories of Dragon and Hellen. And then almost at the end one mind blowing secret will be unveiled. Awesome book.

GREAT BACK STORY! REALLY EYE OPENING!!!

This was fantastic!! It takes us from the beginning...up to the horrific truth!! People can be so evil!! We think of the CDC as a good thing...but now, I am kind of skeptical! lol f there is ever a Zompoc..I am steering clear of the CDC for sure now!! This one starts out pretty sexy too...I really enjoyed this one..and the narration..though good in the first one...really develops in this one...I am on to book 3 now!!! GREAT BOOK!!! :)

I liked it!!

First things first, I love the narration! Heather is amazing!
I like this series a lot but I do not like the way the series is structured. Book 1 was a cliffhanger which I’m not fond of but I got over it since book 2 has been published, but book 2 starts 20 yrs in the past still leaving me hanging.
I felt like with this story I started in the middle of a series with so much going on and a lot of new characters being introduced. Often times in a series (especially a big one) there are so many characters in a story it takes me a bit to get used to.
Please remember that this is only my opinion and I’m generally a slower reader so your experience will likely be way different than mine. I feel it’s a mild zombie story but would still recommend this to Zombie/apocalypse lovers if they don’t mind the cliffhanger!

Look to the past to face the future

In this book, we get to see how the world has gotten into the shape it is. I found it fasinating to learn how the zombies came to be and why they are the way that they are. I can't wait to figure out where this story is going. My only issue with this book is that I was hoping it would take us further into the series than it did. All in all thought, it was a fantastic book with great narration.

Twisted Memories

I love this series! After a virus wipes out most of the population and Zombies are another result of the flu,people flock to a safe town.Of course it's run by the very people who started it all.Told by each person in their own words we get background and then we find out their fate.Heather Firth is a good narrator,though her male voices are sometimes cringeworthy.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Prequel for this series. Interesting.

Great narration and I really enjoy the writing. Love the post-apocalyptic world building the Kate L. Mary does. Entertaining story. I think this book would have been better as an ending book for the series this series is a spin-off of, or for this to be the first book of this spin-off series. I didn't read the previous series, so I was missing the emotional connection to the characters of this one a bit. I also couldn't fully enjoy this one because I just want the story to continue rather than dwelling on the past. I'm probably just impatient. This book is kind of morose because you know all these characters are going to suffer. There's lots of POV's in this one, and it gives the story of the going-ons between the other series and the first book of this series. The story ends in the same spot as the first book and the novella, so there wasn't any new scenarios. If you are a fan of either series, you'll probably enjoy getting a deeper look at the lives of each character. I'm excited to see how this story will play out. Definitely listen to the audio if you choose to read Twisted Memories, job well done!
