Kate L. Mary brings us back into the Broken World with this new series. It's 20 years later and things aren't much better than when we left the survivors last time.
The focus this time around is on Megan, the daughter of Hadley Lucas. Megan lives in the settlement of New Atlanta with some of the other survivors. In catching up with everyone, we learn Angus is dead, Axl is missing, Vivian is losing it and the overall situation for everyone else isn't so great.
The regulators are still the heads of the colonies and are still as corrupt as ever. However, since the CDC is located in New Atlanta, they're taking evil to new heights. Further proof that while the undead are a force to be reckoned with, humans in general are the true enemy.
Megan, or Meg as she's known to everyone, is dealing with everything inside New Atlanta as best as she can, but as time goes on, she starts to realize that everything she knew or believed in might not be the most accurate picture of what's going on. Someone she should fear becomes a friend and someone who was a friend becomes the person she most fears.
As her world unravels, we see the horrors those in charge are capable of- selective executions, a cull disguised as an outbreak, pushing people to the brink to serve their end game- and there are people tired of it.
This chapter ends with those people set to do something about New Atlanta, knowing that if they can pull it off, they doom themselves life as it was 20 years ago.
Can't wait to see what happens......and to see if someone goes out with a bang.........
