The Sweetest Torment

(3 customer reviews)


I wanted Andrew to suffer, and part of me thought watching his torment might be the sweetest victory I would ever experience. 

Stranded hours from home and empty-handed, with Kellan on the brink of death, Regan finds herself facing the most difficult challenge yet. Their enemies are still out there, lurking in the shadows and seeking revenge, and with nowhere else to turn, she must put all her faith in the hands of strangers if they have any chance of surviving. 

Traveling by land and water, and with the help of people they just met, Regan and Kellan must brave zombies, humans, and harsh conditions in the ruins of what was once the United States as they make their way back to Oklahoma. But the real challenge is yet to come. Andrew isn’t finished with them. Only this time Regan is determined to be ready for him. More importantly, she isn’t going to let him get away without paying for the things he’s done.

    The Sweetest Torment: A Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Novel (Oklahoma Wastelands, Book 3) by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Heather Firth is another good addition to the series (hoping it’s not the last). Recommend if you’ve been listening to this series and if not, you should def start!

    What’s it about? Kellan and Regan are back and dealing with the psycho Andrew while encountering new crazies of the religious variety (don’t worry, there’s a couple normal folks too). When Kellan and Regan become separated, a harsh reality sets in for Regan. There are heavy loses and gains, a good amount of focus on their relationship development, and some surprises. I LOVE this world overlaps with her other books (nope, not saying who, listen to the series). There is bonus content at the end for one of the new characters back story, which was a nice surprise.

    The narrator, Health Firth, was fabulous (yet again!). Great voices, pacing, and overall adds to the book.

    “I knew I was living in a twisted world when I found myself rooting for a zombie, but I couldn’t help it.”

    Parental guidance/trigger warnings: It’s the zompoc so things like violence, death, torture, PTSD, or like situations occur. Some sex (nothing too graphic). Language used: F x1, S x28.

    Book 3, so definitely go read the previous books first. This has been such a fun series, and I’ve loved how Regan matured throughout the series; she’s a strong character. Kellan is awesome too! This book starts right where book 2 left off; Kellan’s bite from a crazy human has become infected and he needs antibiotics, and Regan and Kellan find themselves being rescued by a new group of people. Lots of new characters in this book. More zombie adventures and trust issues! These books mainly deal with the weirdos and dangerous humans in this zombie world, but it’s nice to see that there are those that still have good intentions. Some great action; the riverboat was cool. I would’ve loved more of the zombies taking out the bad guys; they deserved to be munched on. Absolutely love the connection between Regan and Kellan! They are one of my favorite couples in Mary’s books. This was a good ending to this series; sad in parts, joyous in others, fully entertaining!

    In addition to the regular story, there’s a short story about Brady, who we are introduced to in the regular story. It’s a longer version of the story he tells Regan in this book; about Him dealing with his wife dying.

    Also, I listened to the story on Audible. The narrator does an excellent job. She gives a quality performance, and fits the characters really well. I even liked her guy voice!

    This whole series was amazing! The characters and story as usual is strong. Kate L. Mary makes you feel like you are right there with Regan while shes dealing with her “coming of age” in a zompoc where humans are just as if not more dangerous than zombies
