I have been so in love with this series since the beginning. It has been a continuous, chronological story - the books are not independent. So I am guessing that pretty much most readers at this point in the series haven't just picked this book up as a starting point, but are already familiar with what has come before. This edition starts with what is going on with Hadley/Ginny and Jon at the New Hope settlement. After a few chapters it switches to what is happening with Vivian/Axl & Company at their own settlement. The book follows along that pattern, keeping us up to date with both groups, coexisting at the same time, but not interacting with each other. For me it was such a good, comfortable feeling to read this; like stopping by to visit some long lost friends and catching up with them on their lives. I haven't forgotten how much I like these people and what a good author Kate L. Mary has been, creating this dystopian society which tends to have more problems than good times, but still manages to keep looking forward. This book covers the survivors' first winter in Colorado and their struggles to survive with food and fuel shortages and sagging spirits. The cold weather has frozen and slowed down the zombies, but it hasn't killed them. More than one long-time character dies in this edition, but I won't spoil it by telling you who.
I am so looking forward to reading Book 6, Forgotten World, which just downloaded into my Kindle a few days ago. To the best of my knowledge, that will be the last book in this series
I'm happy to highly recommend. Each day I fall me myself purchasing the next in the series and I'm sad to be almost finished.
So there was me, with The Walking Dead withdrawal symptoms and in need of more zombie apocalypse stuff, when I remembered this series I'd meant to keep up with. I re-read the first and the second, then decided to get this next one. I have no longer got episode 4, Lost World, as I'd downloaded it on Kindle Unlimited, and I have a shocking memory, but, happily, most of the story made its way back into my head as I started reading this, and I discovered that it actually works okay as a stand alone, or near enough.
The two groups from Lost World are enduring their first zombie winter in snow-covered Colorado, and wondering what happened to their friends from whom they were separated. One group is in a small community of about twelve, one in a much larger one, numbering about 200. But, of course, with any community comes leadership wrangles that are only just beginning. And what will happen when the zombies thaw out?
This is a cracking series, a real easy read if you like this sort of thing. It's told from the points of view of ex stripper Vivian, redneck-with-a-heart Axl, former Hollywood actress Ginny, and her man, Jon. The characterisation is excellent - I found a new one to love (Jim) and one to hate, too (Dax), and of course there are other worries for all survivors: sometimes the humans are more dangerous than the zombies. I'm still not sure that Hope Springs holds the answer....
For anyone who's been reading these books, there are two sad losses, from the original group, one of which brought tears to my eyes. I have downloaded Book 6, Forgotten World, and am going to start it as soon as I have posted this!
Story wise though, definitely worth getting and can't wait for the next one...
This is the fifth book in the Broken World series, which I adore. This series is full of action and excitement and incredibly complex characters. This fifth installment lives up to the rest of the series. It focuses a lot more on Jon and Hadley, who got separated from the group in the last book. It was kind off refreshing to see something new. Jon and Hadley might be my two favorite characters now (though, of course, I’ll always love Axl and Vivian). Throughout the book, Jon really struggled with his guilt over what happened in Las Vegas. Hadley has completely forgiven him, but he can’t forgive himself nearly as easily. Now, more than anything, Jon wants to give Hadley a safe and secure future – or at least as close to that as is possible in their world! The only reason I’m not giving this book a “full” review is because I feel like I keep stating and restating my reasons for loving this series, and I start to sound a bit like a broken record. My one tiny criticism is that this installment didn’t feel quite as action packed as the others, but that also could have just been my more distracted state while reading it (I have a LOT going on lately). But I am SO excited that book six is coming out later this month!! I barely have to wait!!
