Published: January 3, 2015

Genre: Science Fiction, Apocalyptic, Post-apocalyptic, Zombies, Horror


****Warning: Contains spoilers for Broken World and Shattered World.

Mad World is the third book in the Broken World series, which follows a group of survivors after a super-virus has destroyed the world and the dead have come back to claim it as their own….

Vivian didn’t think things could get any worse than losing Emily, and getting to the shelter should have been their salvation. But once again their hopes were shattered when they discovered things weren’t safe as promised, forcing them to head into Vegas in search of supplies.


But now she and Hadley find themselves in a situation more threatening than even the dead walking the Earth. Kidnapped by armed men and taken deep into Vegas, they’re cut-off from anyone who cares about them and thrust into a world so sick and twisted it can only be described as madness. Knowing that Axl has no idea where they are and little hope of finding them, Vivian and Hadley must team up with one of the very men who abducted them if they have any hope of escaping their new nightmare.


Watching Vivian get thrown into the back of a van almost tears him apart, but he’s determined to find her no matter what it takes. With the growing tension between him and Angus, Axl finds himself wondering if the price will be his relationship with his brother. Putting both old and new wounds aside, Axl and Angus must infiltrate the group holding Vivian and Hadley, and make their escape through a zombie-ridden Vegas.

But the men in charge of Vegas aren’t the type to easily forget, and the group soon discovers that getting the girls out alive very well could mean the end for them all…

My Review:

Mad World starts out with a bang from the first page and never lets up until the end. Mad World like its predecessors Broken World book one and Shattered World book two is just as fast-paced it had me hooked from the very beginning as if it was even possible, with zombies and more zombies and monsters, human monsters.

Mad World is told from two points of view. In Mad World, we get the story from both Axl and Vivian. I like reading stories from more than one point of view as you get the story from more than one perspective. And if the two people are in different places you get both of their stories at once so to speak. You can also learn more about a person when you get the story from their point of view.

In the third book of the Broken World series, Mad World there were a few sleazy characters that showed up on the scene and let me tell you, these guys were despicable. Yeah, they thought the end of the world meant they could treat women any way they wanted as if it was their right and that women no longer had any rights or feelings for that matter. They thought they could just take women right off the street for their own personal gain. They traded supplies for women and used them any way they wanted.

Axl had to watch as the woman he loved was taken right in front of his eyes ripping his heart right out of his chest and there was nothing he could do. They fought back doing their very best to keep the girls, Vivian, and Hadley from being taken but without success.

Axl and Angus with the help of their friends set out to find the girls but they didn’t even know where to start looking and no way of finding out. But of course, that didn’t stop them from searching for the girls.

Vivian and Hadley knew the guys had no idea where they were and wouldn’t come rushing in to save them. So they made their own plans to escape and hopefully before things turned really bad for them. They found their way out through the new guy in the group of men who had taken them. New guy agreed to help them escape but he had his own agenda for helping them.

Just as the author Kate L. Mary is a die-hard fan of The Walking Dead so am I. The Walking Dead is my all-time favorite TV show. I love zombies, fast, slow, or anyway I can’t wait to seek my teeth in the fourth book of Broken World, Lost World for more zombies and to see what all the characters, zombies included have in store for us on their next leg of the journey.

I highly recommend Mad World to all the zombie fans out there in the book world and to all fans of The Walking Dead. One-click your copy of Mad World today!
