Twisted Mind by Kate L. Mary
Twisted Mind: A Broken World Novella - Kate L. Mary

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was a great chance to see things from a completely different perspective. This is a novella-length story that really does need to be read after Twisted World since the events in this story take place at the same time. In this story, we see things from Jackson's point of view. I was pretty sure that I didn't like Jackson before I started this book but now I am absolutely certain that this is not a nice guy. It was really kind of fun to see just exactly how this guy mind really works. I had a good time with this story.

Jackson Star was born at the start of the zombie apocalypse and he is roughly the same age as Megan. Jackson's father is the man in charge of the settlement that they live in. He doesn't know what it is like to not be in power. They live in a big house while others live in shacks. Jackson, along with his father, has a plan and that plan involves Megan James.

Jackson was even worse than I thought he would be and I thought he was pretty bad. He really does have an evil mind and I was at times amazed by just how far he would be willing to go. I thought he was selfish and uncaring but learned that he actually enjoys seeing others in pain. He likes to make others suffer and he is completely unable to empathize on any level. 

This story was very eye-opening. It was really interesting to see things happening that I couldn't even imagine. I liked that certain parts of this story mirrored Twisted World but though a warped lens. I thought I knew what happened but I didn't know everything. I love the fact that even though I knew a lot of the events that would happen in this story, everything still felt very fresh because the perspective was so different. 

I thought that Heather Firth did a great job with this story. I like that she speaks very clearly and I think she does a great job with the character voices. I thought that she had a very pleasant voice and I had no trouble listening to this story for hours at a time.

I would recommend this series to others. I love the world that Kate L. Mary has created and the characters almost feel like family. I cannot wait to read more in this series!

I received a review copy of this audiobook from the author.

Initial Thoughts
This was an interesting point of view. This novella takes place at the same time as the first book in the series, Twisted World. Everything is presented from Jackson Star's point of view and as much as I thought I didn't like him before, this novella left no doubts. Jackson Star is not a nice guy. The story did answer a few questions and let me see another side of things to really give a clear picture of what is going on in this world. I thought that the narration was well done as well.

The Rancher’s Second Chance by Mary Sue Jackson, Leslie North
The Rancher’s Second Chance - Leslie North,Mary Sue Jackson

 

 

In order to move forward, there are moments when life forces us to look back. For Cole and Samantha that seems to be an uphill battle. The Rancher's Second Chance is my kind of sexy. Life may not always have been kind, but love saw it's way clear to giving double heartache a chance to get things right.

Halloween Bingo: Monsters
Frankenstein - Mary Shelley,Dan Stevens
Frankenstein - Marilyn Butler

I may have accidentally started Frankenstein this morning.

 

You see, I was getting ready to go to work and I accidentally clicked on the title in Audible when looking for a different book. But the audiobook is read by Dan Stevens, who can literally read anything to me (as proven by his narration of Ken Follett's Fall of Giants - man, I hate that book). I just could not bring myself to stop the narration and go back to the book I was actually looking for...

 

This will be my third re-read of the book. Last time, I found an audiobook narrated by Kenneth Branagh to have alongside my paperback edition. So I am eager to see how Dan Steven's narration compares.
