Publisher's Summary

From the author of the Amazon best-selling Broken World series, comes book three in an exciting new Zombie Apocalypse series! 

I wanted Andrew to suffer, and part of me thought watching his torment might be the sweetest victory I would ever experience. 

Stranded hours from home and empty-handed, with Kellan on the brink of death, Regan finds herself facing the most difficult challenge yet. Their enemies are still out there, lurking in the shadows and seeking revenge, and with nowhere else to turn, she must put all her faith in the hands of strangers if they have any chance of surviving. 

Traveling by land and water, and with the help of people they just met, Regan and Kellan must brave zombies, humans, and harsh conditions in the ruins of what was once the United States as they make their way back to Oklahoma. But the real challenge is yet to come. Andrew isn’t finished with them. Only this time Regan is determined to be ready for him. More importantly, she isn’t going to let him get away without paying for the things he’s done.

Couldn't put down, must listen!

The Sweetest Torment: A Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Novel (Oklahoma Wastelands, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Heather Firth is another good addition to the series (hoping it's not the last). Recommend if you’ve been listening to this series and if not, you should def start!

What’s it about? Kellan and Regan are back and dealing with the psycho Andrew while encountering new crazies of the religious variety (don’t worry, there’s a couple normal folks too). When Kellan and Regan become separated, a harsh reality sets in for Regan. There are heavy loses and gains, a good amount of focus on their relationship development, and some surprises. I LOVE this world overlaps with her other books (nope, not saying who, listen to the series). There is bonus content at the end for one of the new characters back story, which was a nice surprise.

The narrator, Health Firth, was fabulous (yet again!). Great voices, pacing, and overall adds to the book.

“I knew I was living in a twisted world when I found myself rooting for a zombie, but I couldn’t help it.”

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: It’s the zompoc so things like violence, death, torture, PTSD, or like situations occur. Some sex (nothing too graphic). Language used: F x1, S x28.

I truly loved this audible book. At times I had to stop because I was too anxious about what would happen next. But I mustered up the courage each time and kept going.
I also loved the ending. Fantastic!!!

Great Read

The Sweetest Torment (Oklahoma Wastelands #3) was a good read by Kate L. Mary. They are stranded hours from home, with Kellan on the brink of death. Regan finds herself with no where else to turn. She has to put all her trust into strangers if they want to survive. They travel by land and water, and must brave zombies, humans and harsh conditions. Unfortunately Andrew isn't finished with them. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Fun zombie action and sweet romance!

Book 3, so definitely go read the previous books first. This has been such a fun series, and I've loved how Regan matured throughout the series; she's a strong character. Kellan is awesome too! This book starts right where book 2 left off; Kellan's bite from a crazy human has become infected and he needs antibiotics, and Regan and Kellan find themselves being rescued by a new group of people. Lots of new characters in this book. More zombie adventures and trust issues! These books mainly deal with the weirdos and dangerous humans in this zombie world, but it's nice to see that there are those that still have good intentions. Some great action; the riverboat was cool. I would've loved more of the zombies taking out the bad guys; they deserved to be munched on. Absolutely love the connection between Regan and Kellan! They are one of my favorite couples in Mary's books. This was a good ending to this series; sad in parts, joyous in others, fully entertaining!

In addition to the regular story, there's a short story about Brady, who we are introduced to in the regular story. It's a longer version of the story he tells Regan in this book; about Him dealing with his wife dying.

Also, I listened to the story on Audible. The narrator does an excellent job. She gives a quality performance, and fits the characters really well. I even liked her guy voice!

I'm jealous!

Another great apocalyptic tale by Kate Mary. Her writing never fails me and this series is no different. I find this volume in particular, and this series in general, too be more intense and violent than we are used to from Kate Mary. Reagan is a strong female protagonist, who is Kate’s hallmark, a beautiful strong-willed young woman rushed into maturity due to the circumstances. Escaping from or avoiding one situation after another, Regan and Kellan continue their journey to Oklahoma. The American Queen was an exciting episode filled with tension and danger. Andrew is still out there and unfortunately, is quite lucky. Epilogue and conclusion are well done and satisfying as usual. Heather Firth’s performance was amazing as well.

LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS!!!

I received this book via a promo code and this is my honest review.

If you are looking for a GOOD zombie apocalypse story... well you just found a GREAT one. I've read a few of the shorter novellas by Kate L Mary and recently stumbled across the Oklahoma Wasteland series.

This girl has TALENT! If the first addictive few seasons of TWD could be bottled and poured out of a speaker.. that is this series!

Book 3 finds us back with Regan and Kellan miles from home in the company of some new allies, Logan and his group. They are still being hunted by Andrew and theres no shortage of twists to their journey back to Shelter. They lose people, they get into natural disasters... theres an insane cult wedding. The drama with the dead is secondary to the peril caused by the CDC and the new government. The world is vibrant and the narration... Heather Firth could read the dictionary and I'd still be content. Her voice was perfect for this series. I enjoyed it so much I'm going onto the Broken World Series next to see other survivors in this world.

Magnificent!!

This story had me intrigued from the beginning and biting my nails the entire way through. The series is about a zombie apocalypse and was making me think very nervous listening to it. It made me feel that I was with the characters in the story. I don’t know about you but when a book makes your heart race and makes you jump when you hear a noise. It’s also had my nerves on edge. To me that makes a damn good story!
The narrator does a spectacular job with the characters and voices of each character which makes it easy to distinguish between the characters and voices of each character. She does a hell of a good male and female voices. I definitely love listening to this narrator telling a story. She has a lot of emotion and fear at just the right time for each of the characters. Heather Firth does an award winning job! She is outstanding!
