Twisted Book 1

Author Kate L. Mary

Genre: Post Apocalyptic

Release: 2018

Synopsis

Twenty years ago, a deadly virus swept the  globe, ravaging the population. People died and came back as monsters,  and through the tragedy that rocked the world, survivors were born.  Megan James is the product of survivors. Her parents crossed hundreds of  miles of dangerous countryside to reach Atlanta and the promise of a  real future.

Now, two decades later, Meg is facing a crisis of her own. Her father  has vanished and is presumed dead, and her mom is teetering on the edge  of insanity, but all Meg really wants is to return to the safe world  she always thought she was living in. Only Atlanta isn't everything her  parents thought it would be. The slums have grown and corruption is  rampant, and despite the promise of democracy, the new government has  been slow to change. Through it all, the only consistency seems to be  the zombies. Decayed and barely more than skeletons, there is no reason  they should still be moving. But they are.

Facing the harsh world alone, Meg gets a job in the entertainment  district of Atlanta where she meets convict fighter Donaghy. Angry at  the world and his circumstances, all the fighter really wants is to be  left alone. But when he gets swept up in Meg's problems, he finds it  impossible to turn his back on her.

When a mysterious note resurrects old rumors about what the CDC is  really doing, Meg can’t help wondering if her father might have met the  same fate that her uncle did 20 years earlier. With the help of Donaghy,  she will search for the truth among the darkness that has settled over  Atlanta, where they'll soon discover that the mutated virus has brought  forth creatures nobody could have imagined, and the evil intentions of  the men in charge are much more sinister than anyone ever thought  possible, making the future look harsher than ever before.

  • The narrator did a great job making the characters real and thus making  it very easy to emers yourself into their lives.  She really made the  characters interesting and gave them emotion when they talked.  ~Maly C., Audible Listener
  • I have to mention the narrator, perfect,  a joy to listen to with  clear definition between the male and female characters  and a great  range of different voices! Heather Firth does an amazing job!   ~Sharon, Audible Listener

Genre: Post-Apocalyptic

Release 2018

Synopsis

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.

Synopsis

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.

Twisted Book 3

Author: Kate L. Mary
Genre: Post-Apocalyptic
Release 2018

Synopsis

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.
