Harlequin romance in the apocalypse?

What a yawner..... I REALLY tried. I have only returned 2 books -- and this one was one of them. Of course I had to torture myself for two hours hoping it would move forward and simply couldn't take it anymore. This book was going no where....SLOWLY. Purchased this book because it referenced "if you like As This World Ends". Trust me this is nothing close to that series.

How can you grow up during the apocalypse and have never killed a Zombie?? Seriously from age 12-21 you never ONCE had to kill a zombie? And we get it your a VIRGIN! (Who clearly needs to get laid.)

The story was too over the top with Kelan's over protectiveness of Reagan and her over the top weaknesses. If he would have truly cared for her -- he would have been training her to take care of herself and be a badass.

If you are snowflake -- or Young Adult, this book is for you.

Pro: The narrator was easy to listen to. Probably why I stuck with it as long as I did.

Please

If you are older than 12, please do not waste your credits. So predictable that there are times you are writing the next line. If you want an adult well written book...read T.W. Piperbroke or Sarah Lyons Fleming. This book is filled with repeated predictable situations that "Oh goodness, how did that happen again?" There was a plot, but never any build-up or suspense. A young boy and girl ventured into their twenties before confessing their love for each other. After that, you wish they never had! If you are 12 and your Mom allows you to read Zombie books, then this is for you.

A must read!

I love Kate’s books and when I picked up this series I was unable to put it down until I was finished. It was engaging right from the start.

Is it the right read for me?

The story has more romance than some would like, but was just the right amount to me. Seeing the couple weather the same apocalypse together was heartwarming and heart-retching at the same time. Reading about a new family coming together and all of the trials and tribulations they faced had me on the edge of my seat. The people reading the book had soothing voices and made the reading less monotonous which I’m greatful for. Finished the whole trilogy in three days and was worth every penny.

A great romance in zombieland

I enjoy Kaye L Mary and this was no exception to the rule! The world draws from our own zombie lore while also using our own movies and tv shows as actual character references. The romance between the 2 MCs is sweet and passionate, driven by life before the apocalypse and circumstances. The villain is a horrible person and the clustered communities are all Unique. Narration was great as well!

One of the worst male protagonists I've ever read

Holy Jesus the brothers best friend gets old real fast. Control freak poster child that tells every single person what to do. while making retarded decisions to boot. he actually tells another grown ass man that he can't get laid while banging his gf all over the state.

Meh

I couldn't get through this one. I loved the Silent World series, but this one, this one just wasn't as impactful and didn't keep my attention at all. At. All. I like the fact that the stories intertwine, but the main character annoyed the crap out of me, and it just seemed the story drug on and on without anything actually happening. I'm sure some people will love it, I for one did not. The Silent World series though, was epic!

Great Read

The Oklahoma Wastelands Series: The Complete Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Box Set (Oklahoma Wastelands) was a goo read by Kate L. Mary. This box set consists of; The Loudest Silence, The Brightest Darkness, and The Sweetest Torment. Regan grew up in the small town of Altus, OK; and growing up Kellan was her brother's best friend. Unfortunately a virus came that turned the world's population into zombies. For nine years they fight zombies and other people. I really enjoyed these books and can't wait to read more by the author.

pure joy

I have loved the whole series and getting to know all the new characters as well as some from another series. I haven't watched TV in weeks thanks to this great lot of books. Totally worth every penny and I think audible is the way forward and the housework still gets done. thanks Kate your stories are 5*

Nothing to see here!

I had to return the trilogy after giving it a really good go (nearly finished first book!). It was a teen romance with breathy and at times cringe/embarrassing, distracting narration. Child like impersonation of male voices. What happened to Heather Firth?
No Zombie action to speak of and so far away from the more vivid and 3D universe created in her Broken World Series.
In many ways it feels like the female characters are weak willed, waning ninnies who just want to be saved from the spittoon spitting villains and loved - by their male heroes. This brave new world is only full of straight white people who seem to remember how it was to live in the Wild West! Though a cursory nod to a black fella who arrived offered to help then left - laughing and muttering under his breath (sigh!). It is not set in this time so why do I see it in the writing?
Big step back in my eyes, not a series can invest my time in or recommend. I suspect the younger readers will find it unpalatable to be cast in such cliche type roles too. Sorry Kate missed the mark for me

Attention grabbing

This series sank its hooks into me right from the start, and kept me rivetted throughout, and tho' 30+ hours seems a lot I was still desperate for more when I finished - clutching a box of tissues. The story really pulled at my feelings, making me laugh and cry, and feeling mad as hell at Andrew the villain, Kellan and Reagan's romance was lovely without dominating the plot. This was action packed, and fast paced and I fell in love with the characters quickly, I liked that it coincided with 'Broken World' and some of the characters appeared, with some great insight ino Emma and brady's lives in the included short stories. I loved this series and highly recomend it, it fully deserved the 5 stars across the board, with fantastic narration by Heather as always. I received this book it exchange for my honest review.
