Stranded in the middle of the Mojave Desert, surrounded by zombies, Vivian and Axl’s group are sure they’re facing the end. The dead are closing in and the shelter they were promised is sealed tight, only they refuse to go down without a fight. Just when they think they’ve run out of time, the doors to the shelter are thrown open and they’re given refuge. Five years in underground condos with all the provisions there for the taking. It’s almost too good to be true. With the promise of security, Vivian hopes she’ll finally able to take a deep breath and deal with everything that’s happened. The loss of Emily, her growing feelings for Axl, and the terrifying new world they’re facing.
But the group’s sense of security is soon shattered when they learn the shelter isn’t the utopia they thought it would be. It seems the company that built the shelter decided to solve their financial problems by selling off provisions, which means the group has to find a way to get food, fuel and medical supplies. Or face starvation.And Vegas is the closest city. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
In book two of the Broken World Series, the survivors are led into the shelter just in the nick of time. Not is all at it appears. The supplies have been sold off, and instead of there being enough food, weapons and medical supplies for 50 people for five years there is barely enough for two weeks. It’s up to the survivors to brave the zombie hordes and venture into Vegas to find supplies. Shattered World was very relevant to its name, the world and everything people knew is gone shattered. It will never be the same. But I guess that is what an apocalypse is. Mary is exquisite with her detailed approach on the bleakness, but it’s still unfathomable. The suspense, action, drama and light romance bring the story together. I’ve already purchased book 3 Mad World, and I can't wait. I am giving Shattered World 5 Boundless Stars, and it was excellent.
