Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tours hosted by CLP Blog Tours for the first two books in this series and I have been waiting for this one. See my reviews for the first two books here: Mad World: Epidemic and Mad World: Sanctuary. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I have been waiting for its release for months and I couldn’t wait to see how this series ended. I was not disappointed.

This final installment of Mad World is narrated by Luke. You can tell it is narrated by a young man. It took a while to get into that groove/mindset of a twenty-something male but once I did, this book moved and was every bit as exciting as the first two books. I couldn’t put it down until I was finished with it. And there wasn’t a down moment in this action-packed book.

There were quite a few surprises throughout this book. I want to spill every detail, but I will not. I don’t want to spoil this book. Let me tell you, I do not like zombies. Not one bit. As I said in my review of Mad World: EpidemicI would never have picked up this book. I am so glad that I did and I am so glad that I finished this series. It was  so good and so exciting and so worth the read. Read it. Trust me. everyfree4 Would I recommend it: Absolutely, but you must read the first two books. You can find there here:  Mad World: Epidemic and Mad World: Sanctuary

Will I read it again: You know what? I probably will read this series again.

chrissysig About the book – from Goodreads: Forget what you thought you knew about this story, because everything is about to change. With Alyssa near death, Luke, Jacob and their companions make a desperate attempt to reach Boston with the final ingredient needed for the plague antidote. They must travel through the Canadian wilderness, some of the roughest country in North America. Along the way they are joined by new friends and old as they fight to reach their destination and save Alyssa. What they don’t know is that something is hunting them.

Something evil is lurking, waiting to strike when they least expect it.

After years of fighting courageously against the living plague, they’d thought they knew their enemy. They’d believed their wits, bravery and strength would be enough to win this fight against the threat that had overrun so much of the world they once knew. But they were wrong.

Now Luke, Risa, Jacob, DeAndre and Jonathan face their most dangerous trials yet as they battle the ever-present zombie threat, along with a new challenge they never saw coming. How many ways can this plague try to kill them? Find out, in the latest installment of the Mad World series.

        I haven’t decided if there will be a fourth book. Right now I am taking a break from the series to put out a book that has been clammering to get out of my head and onto a page 🙂
        But I may return to the series and write a fourth book if there is interest 🙂
