I had a great time with this book. After listening to the first three books in the Broken World series, I wanted more. I just had to know what would happen next to this group of characters. Unfortunately, only the first three books in the series have audiobooks available at this time. I didn't let that stop me and downloading the ebook for the next installment and enjoyed the experience just as much.
This is the fourth book in the Broken World series which really does need to be read in order since each build builds on the events of the previous installment. It has been quite the journey with this group of characters at this point so I don't want to miss a second of what might happen next. In this book, the story is told through both Vivian's and Hadley's point of view. This was the first chance to see things from Hadley's point of view and I really found that I appreciate her perspective.
Things were not looking good for the group at the start of this book. They need to find shelter and only have a very limited amount of supplies. They have learned not to trust others and are always on alert for the dead. They find a temporary shelter that seems to be the answers to their immediate problems but it becomes a nightmare before everything is over.
The best thing about these books are the characters. Unfortunately, we have to say goodbye to several characters in this installment but there are a lot of other important developments including the addition of a few new characters. It was great getting the chance to see things from Hadley's point of view. She is really struggling after the events from the previous book. Her relationship with Jon makes a lot of progress in this book. I really didn't have much of an opinion of Jon before this book but he has quickly become a favorite.
This book was really exciting. I thought that it moved very quickly and I think that the dual points of view helped make it feel like a very quick read. This book was also quite emotional and I loved the way that each character's emotions came through across the page. I found this book almost impossible to put down once I got started and I love that there were some pretty big surprised worked into the story.
I would recommend this series to others. This series has been filled with strong characters who are faced with an almost impossible situation. I cannot wait to see what will happen to everyone in the next book!
Really enjoyed this one! It was nice to get a chance to see things from Hadley's perspective. I really liked her take on things and liked getting to know her a bit better. There were some fairly exciting scenes and a few things that really surprised me. Can't wait to start with the next book!
