Review: Twisted Mind by Kate L. Mary @kmary0622

Twisted Mind

Twisted #1.5

by Kate L. Mary

Published: January 17, 2017

Publisher: Twisted Press, LLC

Genre: Zombie, Dystopian, Science Fiction, Horror, Apocalyptic, Post-Apocalyptic, New Adult


Born at the beginning of the zombie apocalypse to the head of the CDC and the leader of the new world, Jackson Star has always known that he would one day rule. Only the Stars’ plans go much deeper than simply keeping humanity alive, and the evil that sleeps inside Jackson is darker than even his father knows. Everyone in the settlement is a puppet, and everyone has a purpose in the Stars’ master plan, starting with Megan James.

But as Jackson and his father creep closer to achieving their goals at the CDC, things slowly begin to unravel. Meg isn’t cooperating the way she should be, and the presence of a new person in her life is threatening to blow their plan apart. Jackson must now decide how to deal with the girl he has spent the last nine years trying to manipulate, as well as the family she has left and the man who has taken up residence in her life. To complicate matters even more, the darkness inside Jackson has gotten increasingly persistent, making it difficult for him to control it at times and leading him to wonder if he shouldn’t just give in to his urges once and for all.

Twisted Mind is a dark and disturbing look into Jackson’s brain, and the inner-workings of the CDC. It will give readers a glimpse of the future, as well as answer questions that have plagued us from the very beginning of the Broken World series.

My Review:

Wow! I don’t even know where to begin with this review. Twisted Mind takes us deep inside of a very disturbed young man, Jackson Star. Jackson is the son of the man who is the head of the CDC and I guess you could say the head of New Atlanta or more like the king or ruler. I think Star has more control of New Atlanta than anyone knows.

Jackson is a very, very evil-minded person. The things that went through his head. The things he wanted to do. The things he did do. The things that made him what would I say, happy to be watching/seeing. Jackson likes to hurt people, hurt them real bad. He likes to punish them. He likes to torture them in unimaginable ways. I think he is only happy when he is dishing out pain to someone or watching someone who is in pain.

But I don’t think the apple falls far from the tree as they say. I wonder what goes through his dad Garrett Star’s mind as he is the one who raised Jackson and taught him everything he knows.

Garrett Star the head of the CDC and the leader of New Atlanta has been teaching Jackson what he needs to know since before the zombie apocalypse. What is truly going on inside the walls of the CDC? Are they trying to save the world? Or are they trying to control the world?

I love this series, the Broken World and Twisted so very much. I can’t seem to get enough of it. I want it to go on and on never to end. I love all the characters. Each book just throws more and more curves at you leaving hanging on wanting more and more. It leaves you with all kinds of questions while at the same time answering so many.

The characters are all such amazing people. You feel as if you have known them all your life. They are the kind of people you want to help. The kind of people you want as your best friend. Well, there are a few like Jackson and his dad that you don’t want to be friends with. But they may be the kind of enemy you want to keep close so you know where they are. You know the kind of enemy you shouldn’t turn your back on.

I am anxiously awaiting Kate L. Mary’s next book. Hopefully, it will be a zombie book set in this world but if not I am still looking forward to the next book no matter what is.

I would recommend Twisted Mind to all those zombie apocalyptic fans out there. One-click your copy of Twisted Mind today to step inside the mind of an evil person. I can’t recommend both the Broken World series and the Twisted series enough.
