***SPOTLIGHT REVIEW***Lost World by Kate L. Mary
Lost World, the fourth book in the Broken World series, continues following a group of survivors after a super-virus has destroyed the world and the dead have come back to claim it as their own...
With their shelter destroyed and their sense of security shattered, Vivian, Axl and the group set off in search of a safe place. But the group’s morale is at an all-time low, and they now know it’s not just the dead they have to fear. Weeks of wandering brings sickness, death and loss to the survivors, and Vivian soon finds herself losing hope of ever discovering a safe place to live. To make matters worse, two members of the group go missing, leaving the others to wonder not only what happened to them, but if they will ever see their friends alive again.
After what happened in Vegas, Hadley feels like a stranger in her own body. When she and Jon get separated from the rest of the group, she finds herself confronted not only with the scars left behind by her ordeal, but facing the possibility of a new beginning with Jon at her side.
In a twist of fate, Vivian and Axl stumble upon a place that could be the group’s salvation, only to have hope slip through their fingers once again when they are met with the most devastating blow yet…
Hope is a fickle thing and after everything they have been through they have very little of it left, but what else is there to do besides try and survive?
Vivian has found herself throughout these long weeks and has become a stronger person than she ever thought she was. She suffered the loss of her daughter, but she has found Axl and a family with the survivors in her group. But everyone is worn out weeks on the road has been rough on everyone and they are suffering more each day. They need a place to stay, but with hordes everywhere can they ever find a place to settle down?
Hadley went through something terrible in Vegas and is only now coming to grips with everything. She thought she had it under control, but time has made things harder to accept not easier. She is tough and fierce in her own way but she also just wants to be cared for. And when she and Jon get split from the group they will have to figure out how to be around each other without being awkward and figure out if there is more there than quick hookups.
Time is moving on and you see just how hard things are for everyone, but you also see their continued determination to survive and new and inventive ways of doing things you might not have though about before. I love seeing the ups this groups has and feel every down as though I'm right there with them and that is what makes this a truly great read!
