    1. 4.25 The beginning of the end StarsI love Zombie books. I love all forms of Zombie books, the ones with romance, the ones without romance, the ones with mega gorge and the ones with messed up characters. It’s very rare to find a good one that can hold your interest and not read as typical.I’m so delighted that I picked up Broken World. It went beyond my expectations, kept me on my toes and I read it in one sitting.Broken World is book one of the Broken World series. This is the first book, s [...]

    2. 5 Stars for a Zombie novel :) Look out mama, I'm trailer trash window shopping for my next book boyfriend!I read this book in the space of four days which is saying a lot for me because I selfishly spend most of my time writing and have to scrape up time for anyone else's stuff, and I have a new Dean Koontz paperback staring at me too so kudos to the author for getting me to resist that in favour of an e-book.I picked up a copy of Broken World after chatting to the author in a writer's group, an [...]

    3. A raging viral infection breaks out in the densely populated Northeast corridor. Killing an estimated 85% of everyone infected, there is no cure. Travel is severely curtailed. Schools, businesses and non-essential services are shut down completely. Despite these efforts, the virus breaks out, spreading inexorably across the country. It is in this setting, about six-seven weeks after the initial outbreak that Vivian decides to cash in her meager savings and drive across the country to California. [...]

    4. Okay so the two main male characters are basically Merle and Daryl Dixon. The author basically admits as much. But this is NOT a bad thing. In fact, it's a pretty good thing. The main character is tough without being a Mary Sue. All the characters have depth and flaws. The zombies don't show up until the end of the book but that is okay. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the second one.

    5. This was my favorite book I've read so far this month. The author did dystopia well. Dystopian novels are in one of those genres that I love and am always in with both feet. The story starts out with an illness, that was possibly engineered by the government, sweeps through the population and kills off most people leaving few survivors that happen to be immune. But wait, the dead comes back to life as Zombies moving faster and faster the longer they have been dead. This was a wild ride.I liked t [...]

    6. Published: 02/07/2014Author: Kate L MaryRecommended for : I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books with zombie's in them.Edition: KindleI found this book on the Kindle Store for free and so I thought I would give it a try. It is very well written by Kate.L. Mary . I thought that it definately deserved 4star's, it is a brilliant zombie novel. This is a very well written book that the world that is the setting is very realistic and a very interesting place to be. The author describes [...]

    7. 2.5 Stars But only because of Axl. My heart even flutters when I think about him now! Vivian Thomas spoiled everything for me. I have never wanted to slap a fictional character as much as I wanted to slap Vivian the whole time I read this book. One of the weirdest and dumbest heroines ever.She doesn’t have to be an Alpha female and go in with guns blazing to save the world. She can be soft and strong without being stupid or silly.I really hated her.

    8. FINALLYWoo hoow here's a GREAT zombie author!Ms. Mary perfectly mixes in angst, zombies, romance, asshole brute and so many others!The character development is SPOT ON!I can't wait to gobble this series up!

    9. **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**Wow. I really loved this one. I couldn't put it down and then I had to force myself to put it down, because it was dark and late and I was aloneIt was a zombie apocalypse story, but not the same blood and gore killer zombie story I'm used to seeing over and over. BROKEN WORLD was definitely character-driven, and all the characters are so fleshed-out and real that I found myself loving - and loathing - many of them like they were [...]

    10. This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction AddictionThis book was really amazing, and not at all what I was expecting. It took me a while to feel like I was in the mood for this one – I think I just wasn’t feeling in a zombie apocalypse mood or something. But when I finished the book, I had to immediately contact the author and ask for the next one (and then read it immediately). Obviously, I shouldn’t have waited so long!What I LOVED:The story. The first half [...]

    11. Chaotic. Unsettling. Frightening. These are feelings that can be found in almost all zombie apocalypse novels. As the world crumbles, survivors seek ways to make it from one day to the next without becoming infected or dying at the hands of other survivors.Broken World follows Vivian across the United States as she tries to make it to California to be with the daughter she’d given up for adoption. With martial law declared, she’s had to go through a lot just to get the papers required to mak [...]

    12. I did enjoy this - more in some parts than others but I've just had to buy the next one in the series, so it must have been fairly good!It's the usual end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it stuff, but I liked how when it started off the last remants of order still remained. The story is told in the first person by the main character, the trailer-trash-with-a-brain Vivian, who first teams up with two redneck guys, the rather scary Angus and the rather sexy Axl. The story has all the good snippets of hope [...]

    13. I'm a big fan of zombies. Love the Walking Dead and World War Z. Zombie books are often a crap shoot. Some of them a complete fails, with no plot, bland characters and often just badly written. However, there are also some that are just excellent books. Broken World definitely fits into the Excellent book category! It's not just a book where characters are constantly being attacked by zombies and most of the characters are nothing more than appetizers.Vivian is trying to make her way to the litt [...]

    14. This book is a journey. A journey for both the reader and the characters. The zombies don't jump out on page one and no one is bitten or bloody in the first chapter. When I'm reading a zombie book that starts on the day of the outbreak, I always feel like we're missing an important part of character's stories. The world doesn't change in the blink of an eye. It's a slow process and as human beings it takes time to adjust. That's what I wanted to write. So, I took characters that were colorful an [...]

    15. With very obvious borrowings from the popular AMC series, "The Walking Dead", this zombie apocalypse adventure was an enjoyable read for me. A former stripper goes in search of her adopted daughter on the other side of the US once the world begins to falls apart. She's picked up by two redneck brothers, Meryl and Darrel. Or here, Axl and Angus. I had to wonder, several times as I was reading this book and Vivian was addressed as "Sugar Tits", what's going to happen to Viviann if she survives the [...]

    16. Well, this is definitely a different take on the heroine of the ZA (Zombie Apocalypse). Vivian Thomas is a stripper, 20 years old with a four year old daughter she had when she was 16 (basic math) and gave up for adoption to a couple who live in California. So with the ZA upon them fast, she decides she must see her daughter and rescue her if need be. So the story is set and Vivian begins the trip. She encounters a couple of brothers, of the hillbilly kind, one very crude and mean, the other not [...]

    17. 4,5 stars.Wow what a book!Short review:The writing: Well written. It always kept me on my seat! (4 stars)The character: Well developed and the emotions that the characters portrayed were felt deeply enough…y'know, it was realistic, and flawed. Hell I loved it! (4 - 4,5 stars)The story and plot: The first half of the book was long and a little slow…? Yes, I admit it. I kept asking myself, 'what was this book about? Zombie Apocalypse…right? or what??' lol I doubted it for a while, because I [...]

    18. Loved this! A fast paced read about a trailer trash, stripper going on a cross country trip to see the daughter she gave up for adoption 6yrs ago. That would be emotional enough but it's happening during a viral epidemic which soon turns out to be the zombie apocalypse. Along the way she meets all kinds, fights/kills some zombie butt and bad guy butt while also finding a love she feels she doesn't deserve. Can't wait for next book!

    19. Fans of the Walking Dead will truly enjoy this book. A deadly virus breaks out and Vivian sets out to California to find her daughter she gave up as a baby. Along the way her car breaks down and she must choose to trust some redneck brothers or give up. As they get closer to their destination the virus spreads and 90% of the population is dead and they pick up survivors on the way, including trying to pick up a person who has mutated.ry exciting read!

    20. This is one you are going to want the sequel ! A different type of zombie storyline. Happy endings doesn't always happen in apocalypse. The unexpected people are the ones who save your butt from turning into a zombie ! Definitely need tissues for this one !

    21. Entertaining page turner.This book has all just about all of the elements of the perfect book, a good story, action, suspense, a bit of romance, humor and some drama too. Being that I was expecting a bit more and violence, but was still pleased. Will be reading the second book in October !!

    22. This my favorite zombie series of all time. I especially love how the characters remind me of The Walking Dead even though the stories and characters are very different. The books get pretty steamy around the 2nd or 3rd, too!

    23. Not much to say. It's a rockin zombie book. What is there to hate? I love survival stories. I ESPECIALLY love zombie survival stories. Yes Please. All day everyday.

    24. My review first appeared on The Bookie Monster (Sunday, November 16, 2014).I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.First and foremost, I congratulate author Kate L. Mary on the creation of an angry female protagonist. As the purveyors of my book reviews already know, I am not a huge fan of first-person POV, but Ms. Mary did an admirable job with Vivian Thomas, her female protagonist and California tra [...]

    25. I really liked this book.In this book, we meet Vivian she is on her way California to find her daughter who she gave up at birth for adoption. After a deadly virus breaks out. However, on the way her car breaks down. This is when more characters came into the story. It is pretty fast paced good story that will keep you turning the pages. So far I am loving it
