    Description

    New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry returns to the world of Rot & Ruin with this first novel in a brand new series that's more thrilling and filled with exceptionally terrifying adventures. 

    Ever since her mother's death, Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez has spent her days flying under the radar. But when her mother's undead body is returned to her doorstep from the grave and Gutsy witnesses a pack of ravagers digging up Los Muertos - her mother's name for the undead - she realizes that life finds you no matter how hard you try to hide from it. 

    Meanwhile, Benny Imura and his gang set out on a journey to finish what Captain Joe Ledger started: They're going to find a cure. After what they went through in the Rot and Ruin, they think they've seen it all, but as they venture into new and unexplored territory, they soon learn that the zombies they fought before were nothing compared to what they'll face in the wild beyond the peace and safety of their fortified town.

    Benny Imura and Joe Ledger are back!!

    ALL the stars to Jonathan Maberry's return to the Rot & Ruin world in book 1 of his brand new series, Broken Lands! I'm so happy he chose to return to this world and to return to some of my favorite characters ever, Benny Imura, Nix, The Lost Girl, Chong, and especially Joe Ledger!!

    Broken Lands opens with a brand new character, Gutsy Gomez, who lives in New Alamo, Texas, in the part of the U.S. they call the Broken Lands.

    The book opens with Gutsy burying her Mama, twice, first on Wednesday and again on Friday. Her Mama died of tuberculosis, as many of the old illnesses are back in this post-apocalyptic world of zombies. Gutsy and her new rescue dog, and her best friends Spider and Alethea (and Alethea's bat, Rainbow Smite) are determined to find out how Mama came back.

    This new book takes place not long after the ending of the Benny Imura series. It flips back and forth between Gutsy's story, and Benny's story. And once again, Maberry proves himself to be the King of twists as I sit here with my heart pounding and mouth hanging open after reading that very last page.

    I need the next book NOW!!

    I listened to this book on Audible and Ray Porter narrates. He's my favorite audiobook performer for a reason! He was brilliant! As usual!

    political message breaks immersion

    Extreme and over simplified political opinions regarding the complicated issue of illegal immigration is not something I want in fiction. It's a shame because the story did not need it and would be so much better without it.

    kinda spoiled it for me

    Too PC

    One of the weakest books in the series. Dragged a lot in parts. Additionally, the plot seemed all over the place. And, he decided to make way more than usual political comments.

    If you’ve liked the series so far, you should read this installment.

    New Narrator Makes HUGE Difference!

    If you’re a fan of Maberry’s Joe Ledger books, you know that Ray Porter’s masterful readings bring those stories to life. The switch between the previous narrator for the Rot & Ruin series and Mr. Porter is a welcome change! I highly recommend this book and look forward to where the author is taking this epic tale that pulls together characters and plots from 3 series. Could a Pine Deep connection be next? I hope so!

    Heavy on Politics

    Disappointing in that it had such a political bent. Could have been terrific with out it. Like to know ahead of time when I’m getting that. Not a great escape when your hit over the head with someone’s politics.

    Too Much Political Bias!

    Sorry to say that politics and a novel make for a bad listen. Felt like I was enduring a never ending lecture by a politically correct professor. I feel like my time was wasted because of Maberry’s political bias hence I will return this book.

    Thumbs down

    If you are looking for teenage romance meets zombie apocalypse then this is for you, otherwise don’t waste your time. Totally disappointed, I really enjoyed his other zombie books, so this was a complete letdown.

    Glad it was on sale

    Okay I didn’t realize it was like the 6th book in a series but seeing as it introduces a new MC It didn’t really matter. It had ups and downs and eyerolls with exasperated sighs.
    Things I liked: Good performance, good action, goodish bad guys. Good zombies* variations, fast, slow, smart, exotic (like a video game)
    Things I didn’t like: far left politics, concentration camps where people have been experimented on since before the apocalypse was just hamfisted in execution and theme. Plus guess what Zombies are people too “omg the people who the zombies were are still trapped inside their own brains they can see what they’re doing still but can’t help themselves blah blah” is dumb. That trope only works in comedies Shawn of the Dead, that one where the girl dates a zombie, evil dead etc. they’re undead not living dead.

    Yikes! ...perhaps a ten year old would like it?

    The story was poorly written. The author seems to have attempted to give the characters depth by giving them tragic backstories and situations. Doesn’t help - the characters are still flat. I just didn’t care what happened to them. The main character spent way too much time in her head wrestling with her sad feelings, etc. It got so monotonous and annoying. Dreary. It just dragged.

    Even worse, the whole “nuclear waste caused nature to mutate into new and bizarre creatures/plants” was just silly. Might have been intriguing in 1950, but, come on! Couldn’t suffer through even 1/4 of this book. Awful

    Narrator was fine.

    Too much politics, social justice.

    I stopped listening to this book 5 times before i finally gave up. I loved every Joe ledger book, so i started listening to more maberry. The last book of his i listend to, a character "cursed her whiteness." Ok no big deal a little weird though. Then came this book and it was just too much. Let me sum it up. Illegal immigrants = poor helpless saints. Illegal Immgration control officers = nazis. "Concentration camp like prisons" aka immigration control centers. The military and what was left of immigration officers even refure to the illegal immigrants who used to be detained as "rats". Come on man. Main character is a bisexual teenager figuring out her sexuality living in a old immigration camp that her illegal immigrant mother was prisoned in. Just too much. Maberry if you read this please stop jamming this down my throat.
