5 out of 5 stars

Zombie Apocalypse Novella

I love Kate Mary's zombie apocalypse books, and this one is every bit as good as my favourites in the Broken World series.  

Lucy was nine when the virus hit, and has spent the past eleven years in relative safety in a mountain cabin with her uncle.  During that time, she's grown from child to woman without having experienced any of the 'normal' growing up stuff that girls do.  Then she meets Sawyer....

I knew this was a zombie apocalypse book (favourite genre) crossed with romance (one of my least favourite genres), and feared there might be too much emphasis on the latter, with not enough to satisfy my devastated world/survival cravings, but this was not the case.  It's a terrific story and so well written, I read it over the space of three or four hours, and found it completely unputdownable.  The relationship between Lucy and Sawyer was totally believable, and there was lots of info about what the world is like eleven years on - fascinating, and all possible.  

There's no indication that there will be more about Lucy and Sawyer, but they make a great team, and there is some unresolved stuff going on in the settlement down the mountain, so I hope Kate M is going to tell us what happened next!  Great stuff, and nothing to do with the Broken World series, so you can read this without having read any of her other books.  

Broken Stories is reviewed HERE, leading to links to my reviews of the rest of the Broken World series.


  1. I am NOT a zombie apocalypse fan, but this book is going to go on my TBR list so I can stick my toe in the water.

    1. It would be a good book to start with in some ways, though there aren't actually any zombies in it, it's just about survival! I'd suggest Kate's Broken Stories as a better introduction to the genre :)
