Forgotten World, book six in the Broken World series, continues following a group of survivors after a super-virus has decimated the human race and the dead have come back to claim it as their own...

After the longest winter of her life, Vivian is thrilled to have Ginny back at her side. But joy soon turns to shock when the group learns that not only is Hope Springs in contact with other survivors, but that the CDC is working on a vaccine. And Angus could be the last hope for the human race.

With an armed escort, the group sets out on a mission to get Angus to Atlanta. But the world proves to be more dangerous than the people of Hope Springs believed, and their lack of preparation ends in deadly results. Vivian knows they must get Angus to Atlanta if they want to save the human race, but it doesn't take long to discover that this might be the most dangerous journey they have ever made. With trouble around every corner and their losses piling up, the stakes are higher than ever before.
My Review

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.

  1. Keep being good :D Yay. Though I wonder how it will pan out

  2. Oh it's so great that for a 6th book you had such a great time!

  3. It says alot when you're that far into a series and are still enjoying it! It does sound like a great series. Great review!

  4. Sounds like an interesting series

  5. I'm not really a post-apocalyptic fan but I love that the characters are really strong in this one. It always seems like in genres where the focus is on a fast pace the characters tend to get a bit lost.

  6. I have the first book and now I've moved this to my must begin to read list!

  7. This sounds like something that would be right up my alley. Great review.
