Publisher's Summary

Twenty years ago, Angus James woke to find himself in a sterile room. On the other side of the locked door, doctors worked to manipulate a virus, using him as their ultimate pin cushion. 

He was supposed to be dead - and there were moments over the next two decades when he wished he was - but despite his torturous existence, he remained a fighter. Through pain, love, loss, and heartbreak, Angus traveled a road that took him on a journey much bigger than the room to which he was confined. As the world moved forward without him, he fought to hold on to as much of himself as he could, determined to make it out of his prison a whole man. 

Outside the walls of the CDC, Angus’ family worked to move on. But between the dark rumors surrounding the man in charge and a twisted new religion that threatened to turn their lives upside down, starting over has begun to seem impossible. With more and more of the freedoms being stripped away, and more devastating losses piling up around them, the group found themselves wishing they’d never set foot in New Atlanta in the first place and wondering if leaving was even an option....

Travel back with Twisted Memories and experience the emotional journey Angus James was forced to take during his 20 years as a prisoner. Discover how he came to be a father, what he did to stay sane during his long confinement, and how he managed to earn his freedom.

Look to the past to face the future

In this book, we get to see how the world has gotten into the shape it is. I found it fasinating to learn how the zombies came to be and why they are the way that they are. I can't wait to figure out where this story is going. My only issue with this book is that I was hoping it would take us further into the series than it did. All in all thought, it was a fantastic book with great narration.

This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.

Twisted Memories

I love this series! After a virus wipes out most of the population and Zombies are another result of the flu,people flock to a safe town.Of course it's run by the very people who started it all.Told by each person in their own words we get background and then we find out their fate.Heather Firth is a good narrator,though her male voices are sometimes cringeworthy.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Prequel for this series. Interesting.

Great narration and I really enjoy the writing. Love the post-apocalyptic world building the Kate L. Mary does. Entertaining story. I think this book would have been better as an ending book for the series this series is a spin-off of, or for this to be the first book of this spin-off series. I didn't read the previous series, so I was missing the emotional connection to the characters of this one a bit. I also couldn't fully enjoy this one because I just want the story to continue rather than dwelling on the past. I'm probably just impatient. This book is kind of morose because you know all these characters are going to suffer. There's lots of POV's in this one, and it gives the story of the going-ons between the other series and the first book of this series. The story ends in the same spot as the first book and the novella, so there wasn't any new scenarios. If you are a fan of either series, you'll probably enjoy getting a deeper look at the lives of each character. I'm excited to see how this story will play out. Definitely listen to the audio if you choose to read Twisted Memories, job well done!

A new rule order

Book 2 doesn’t start where book 1 ended instead it goes back twenty years giving the reader a backstory on each character that entered New Atlanta. You get a behind the scenes look inside the CDC. New Atlanta is the headquarters and home of the CDC. The CDC is a place where experimentation occurs trying to find a vaccine that will cure the spread of this zombie virus.

It took me some time to acclimate to the new character introductions and the change of scenery. I was expecting the story to delve right into the last scene in book 1. It was my fault for the confusion since I didn’t take the time to read the premise. Had I done that I would have been better prepared.

Heather Firth is the female narrator for all characters both male and female. Let me tell you that is no easy task for one person to do. While she does an excellent job role playing all these characters it’s a lot to take on. I prefer a story of this magnitude to have multiple narrators to help assist with all these characters. I need to tell you trying to keep track of them was difficult. Having a unique voice would immensely improve my ability to remember each character. Then there was the confusion of some characters being identified by there last name and then switched to their first name. I needed a diagram to help illustrate how all these characters tied together.

While I enjoyed book 2 I was disappointed with the continued cliffhanger. I hoped for different answers from the conclusion of book 1. Those answers are in book 3. I’m pleased that Heather Firth narrated each book in the series. Her voice was appropriate for all female characters. I managed with her voice for male characters, but a male narrator would have made this audiobook exceptional.

Excellent Story

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is sort of a prequel to the story that fills in the gaps not covered before. It will still draw you in and not let go and make you yearn for the next installment.

What a Journey 5☆'s

WoW!!! I’m so excited for the last instalment of the series, fast paced all way. I love how this book does exactly what it says in the title... It takes us back over the 20 years that Angus has been in the CdC... and what a journey. Kate L Mary has managed through the skill of her writings to turn my mind and heart around.... Angus is so loved by me now. I don't want to give any spoilers but this book is beautiful, Pain, power, love, hate, greed, realisation, rebirth, growth, birth, death, life, fear, frustration, sorrow, joy... all within the words of this book is beauty. I just love it! The storyline will have you gripped... greed and insanity... power and prestige... Mary has done it again. The Broken World Series has become an epic journey from an amazingly epic mind.
I really believe this book wouldn't have hit the spot as well as it did if Heather Firth was not the narrator... Heather Firth has performed this beautifully. The characters and projection is just right. I believe and like the characters. I could listen all day... actually I did.. 5☆'s + for the narration. I don't believe I would have enjoyed the book as much without the rich warm relaxing voice plying in my ear buds. fantastic!!!
