Summary

Born at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse to the head of the CDC and the leader of the new world, Jackson Star has always known that he would one day rule. Only the Stars’ plans go much deeper than simply keeping humanity alive, and the evil that sleeps inside Jackson is darker than even his father knows. Everyone in the settlement is a puppet, and everyone has a purpose in the Stars’ master plan, starting with Megan James.

But as Jackson and his father creep closer to achieving their goals at the CDC, things slowly begin to unravel. Meg isn’t cooperating the way she should be, and the presence of a new person in her life is threatening to blow their plan apart. Jackson must now decide how to deal with the girl he has spent the last nine years trying to manipulate, as well as the family she has left and the man who has taken up residence in her life. To complicate matters even more, the darkness inside Jackson has gotten increasingly persistent, making it difficult for him to control it at times and leading him to wonder if he shouldn’t just give in to his urges once and for all.

Twisted Mind is a dark and disturbing look into Jackson’s brain, and the inner-workings of the CDC. It will give readers a glimpse of the future, as well as answer questions that have plagued us from the very beginning of the Broken World series.

Getting there

I found this a little hard to keep up with. Lots going on and quite a lot of characters to keep up with. I am looking forward to the next book to see where this is going. Great performance.

Good to See it From the Dark Side

What a meenie!! It's great getting a back story from the Dark Side. seeing the story play out in the long game. Jackson Star is evil personified, he's darker than dark and has been allowed to hone and perfect his darkness under the watchful eye of his mad scientist CDC father. I don't want to give spoilers but this father and son have been waiting 20 years and the time is now and it's ugly... Meg James has had no idea how demented Jackson truly is and things are coming to a fierce head and this madman will stop at nothing to see his plan come to fruition.. I held my breath quite a few times as I listened. I can't wait for book 2 in the series.... these books are my new obsession. do yourself a service and get in in the action. Heather Firth the narrator does an 5☆ job she goes between male and female characters seamlessly and her range of voices for the characters are great. No two voices are the same! Beautifully narrated to make an enjoyable liaten.

Jackson's Depraved POV. Great Narration!

Listened to this with Audible, and the narrator did awesome as always! This is the 3rd book I've listened to with the same narrator, and she always does a great job!

Twisted Mind is Jackson's demented POV. I think you should definitely read Twisted World first. The writing is still great, but I didn't really care about Jackson's POV because I already knew how sick in the head he is, so this was nothing new. This book gives us a different look at some of the scenes in Twisted World, so there really isn't any new content that I felt necessary. This book just confirmed all the thoughts I had from reading Twisted World. Jackson and his dad are despicable people, and Twisted Mind shows us how much. Jackson gets off on blood and violence. The way he thinks about women is disgusting. I didn't listen to the sex scene because I just didn't want anything to do with it. Meg was definitely blind to how depraved Jackson is. Jackson is one step away from un-hinged. I know he grew up with his horrible father as an influence, but it really seems that Jackson would've been bad no matter what. I hope he gets knocked down; maybe become zombie chow. I'm ready to read that! Looks like it won't be the next book, so I'm sad. The next book is sort of a prequel, which I hopefully will enjoy, but I really just want the story to continue!

Jackson is like Jekyll and Hyde

This novella is book 1.5 and should be read after book 1. This fills in the gaps with Jackson’s perspective, reactions, and behaviors to situations pertaining to Meg’s character.
This novella shows a side of Jackson you might not have seen in book 1. Jackson is a powerful, devious, and twisted character. He has been conditioned from the moment he entered into the new world by a man just as dangerous. He’s part of an internship program designed to train and develop the twisted mind where humans live in a settlement behind protected walls. The regulator was unaware of the power he was instilling in this young man.
Jackson is sinister and this short book illustrates examples of his dark desires.

Narrated by Heather Firth. Heather is the voice of all characters. She has a nice tone to her voice. Her vocal style matched the female character roles. Heather’s voice is appropriate casted to portray the female characters. However, Heather’s voice doesn’t portray the male character voices with that deep ember that a man can. Dual narration would be preferable.

There were some moments of silence in the audio almost like the edits didn’t overlap properly leaving gaps of silence.

Star vs. James
Danger inside the walls vs. danger outside the walls
Virus vs. mutation
Containment
Jekyll and Hyde.

Fills in a lot of pot holes.

This novella came out after the first book of the Twisted World series, which adds a lot of helpful background. We are given insight into Jackson Star, the regulator’s son and destined to be head of the CDC. We’ll learn of his infatuation with Meg and all the under-handed plans to win her heart. And we’re introduced to his nastier alter ego, which he calls “the need”. This story overlaps book one concerning the cage fighter, but not to be repetitive. I enjoyed the tale and it filled in a few holes from the first volume. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
