Publisher's Summary

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.

Great ending to a great series!

It took me just a little while to fall in love with the series and its characters. This last story reveals so many secrets, things that they couldn’t talk about in the city. I really enjoyed the family sense and their strength. Meg and her family running away together while Donaghy and her father were at the CDC. I don’t want to reveal anything but it was awesome. Adventure, suspense and love in a world of zombies and crazy leaders.

Omg It’s Freaking Good!!!

Wow. I absolutely Love this series. I’m so sad that it’s over. I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook and the other ones as well. I truly believe this series should become a movie. This series is the first I’ve heard of this author and I’m in Love with her books so far. The Narrator did an amazing job as well!!!

The end...

This is the last book in the series, Twisted World, so if you haven't listened to them, check them out first. However, if you've listened to/read the other books in the series, we finally have our ending. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and there were numerous twists that I wasn't expecting. I really enjoy this ending!

Fun zombie series with some romance!

I've really enjoyed reading Meg and Donaghy's POV's! Love the zombie apocalypse world! I'd recommend at least reading book 1, Twisted World, since this book picks up where the first left off. The other's aren't necessary to read since they are more prequels. I love to see the story continue, and there's some intrigue and action to this story. Meg, Donaghy, and the rest of the gang are under some intense circumstances. There's evil people after them, there's zombies, and there's enemies they didn't think of, so they need to come up with a plan to stop them all. Everything won't go the way they want, but there will be some resolution. This was lots of fun! I listened to the audio version, and the narrator does a great job. She does every characters voice, so that's a feat, and her wizened older person voice is fun.

Taking down Star and Jackson


Narrator: Solo performance by Heather Firth. She does a decent job performing all these characters. For a female narrator she does a believable performance of the male characters. Yet, It would be better having two narrators because there were too many characters to keep track of with one performer. Heather is good, but one person is only capable of so much. Every voice began to blend together. Imagine watching a movie where one actor performed all the character scenes in a character driven movie, that’s a task meant for a variety of performers. Did this hinder the outcome? No, but separating the male and female characters speaking would be easier to identify if voiced by different narrators.

Story: When a family sacrificed safety and lives to travel to the safe haven of New Atlanta only to find out that the CDC was just as dangerous. This is the final installment where the resistance is formed by rebellious survivors seeking justice and revenge against Star and Jackson.
These survivors would rather take a chance on the outside of the walls rather than be controlled on the inside.
All the previous characters return in this final installment. Still a character driven story with a some new characters.

Overall: I no longer go searching for zombie apocalypse books, yet when given the opportunity to listen to this series was offered I gave it a try.
I thought the attack was too easy. I expected Jackson to behave differently when attacked. I thought Meg had something special about her since Jackson had been obsessed with her, yet nothing was revealed. I was confused by some of the characters ability to survive.
If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead and remember that episode with the CDC and wanted a different understanding on what would happen if the CDC worked on a virus that didn’t cure humans but rather made them stronger, quicker, and more dangerous then this series will impress you.
I had a hard time believing the CDC didn’t have cameras inside the rooms.

And it all comes together!!

This series has had me feeling “what the hell” at the end of every book! It now all falls into place and that was so satisfying!! Kate you are an evil genius!! At the end of the last book I was somewhere between I hate this author and I’m going to kill this author! Lol I’m now totally in love with this author. Heather you have done a great job throughout.

Twisted Fate

I like this series.I really do.I do have issues with the long winded repetition that Meg constantly has about,well,everything.5 hours could have been cut out by just saying it once.I also like the ladies narration done by Heather Firth.Her mens voices still make me cringe at times. I took a few breaks during this book because it was such a downer for the most part.The storyline is solid as are the characters.I am looking forward to #4 being light and sunny!lol I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
