I had a fantastic time with this book. This is the sixth book in the Broken World series which really does need to be read in order. While there is a seventh book in the series, this book really wrapped up the main story. I feel like I have been on quite the adventure with Vivian and the rest of the book and I really wanted to see things work out for them. This was one of those books that was almost impossible to put down.
This book is told from Vivan's point of view. At the start of this book, the group is ready to start their trip to Atlanta. The CDC is up and running and the key to the cure that they are working on might just be Angus. The man in charge of the trip thinks that everything should be a piece of cake but Vivian, Axl, Angus and the rest of the group know that thing may not go as planned.
This was an emotional and exciting story. This story broke my heart and gave me hope, sometimes at the same time. There are a few scenes with some pretty intense action when I wasn't sure if our group would make it. When things did go wrong and a couple of characters were lost, I felt it. There were some pretty hard losses in this one. There were also some really great moments when characters put themselves in harm's way in order to protect someone else.
One of the biggest strengths of this book is the characters. I love how this group has grown both individually and together over the course of the series. Even the characters that are put in the story to test the group are incredibly well done. All of the emotions that this group goes through felt very real. They aren't perfect and they do make mistakes but they are always there for each other when it really matters.
I would highly recommend this series to fans of post-apocalyptic stories. I had a great time cheering this group on when things were going well and feeling crushed with them when they weren't. I have become a huge fan of Kate L. Mary and look forward to reading more of her work just as soon as I can.
This was great! There were some pretty tough losses and a lot of excitement in this installment. It has been wonderful watching the characters grow over the course of the series and saying goodbye to some of them was really hard. This really wrapped things up nicely. There is another book in the series which I am eager to start but it looks like it is about a character that was separated from the larger group.
