Broken Lands Reviews

    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!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim. ?The Broken Lands were broken indeed...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    This book was everything!! What a great read. Benny and friends have always held a special place in my heart. They are so relatable, funny, caring, badass and more. I liked Gutsy and friends as well, I think they were a nice addition. Don't even get me started on bringing Joe and Sam b...

    I rather have read a direct continuation to the Rot & Ruin-series than a new story line next to the old. I wasn?t deeply fond of the new main character and the new angels of zombies, that at least for my taste are too extraordinary despite being a big fan of the genre of zombies....

    It was great fun to read about the main characters from the world of Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin...as well as meeting some new characters. I don't believe you have to read Rot & Ruin and the rest of that series, but it certainly will help. ...

    Zombies take over the world I?m sure some students may like-story involves zombies, zombies with changing viruses & destruction of world. I thought I would like but dragged out for me :( ...

    Jonathan Maberry is one of my favourite authors. This is the start of a new trilogy set in the rot & ruin zombie world. It's so well read. I stayed up really late to finish it & I don't regret it at all. If you're a fan of zombie stories go get this out. Highly recommended! ...

    Really liked the way Joe Ledger and others were brought into the story. ...

    So fun to meet new characters and revisit old friends. Can?t wait for the next one. ...

    ALL THE STARS! review to follow! ...

    I hadn't really explored the zombie genre before and enjoyed this book so much that I decided to read the Rot & Ruin series that precedes it! ...

    O.M.G. I love this zombie universe. Hurry, Jonathan...write the next one! ...

    Soo glad for a new addition to the Rot & Ruin series! I really enjoyed seeing Benny and his gang and meeting Gutsy. ...

    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!...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    This book was everything!! What a great read. Benny and friends have always held a special place in my heart. They are so relatable, funny, caring, badass and more. I liked Gutsy and friends as well, I think they were a nice addition. Don't even get me started on bringing Joe and Sam b...

    I rather have read a direct continuation to the Rot & Ruin-series than a new story line next to the old. I wasn?t deeply fond of the new main character and the new angels of zombies, that at least for my taste are too extraordinary despite being a big fan of the genre of zombies....

    It was great fun to read about the main characters from the world of Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin...as well as meeting some new characters. I don't believe you have to read Rot & Ruin and the rest of that series, but it certainly will help. ...

    Really liked the way Joe Ledger and others were brought into the story. ...

    Wow! Wow! Wow! I'm so happy to be back in the Rot & Ruin. Well, actually, I'm very glad I'm not actually there, but Broken Lands was such a welcome addition to the world that Maberry created in his Benny Imura (Rot & Ruin) series. Gutsy is our main character. She lives in Ne...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim. ?The Broken Lands were broken indeed...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    This book was everything!! What a great read. Benny and friends have always held a special place in my heart. They are so relatable, funny, caring, badass and more. I liked Gutsy and friends as well, I think they were a nice addition. Don't even get me started on bringing Joe and Sam b...

    I rather have read a direct continuation to the Rot & Ruin-series than a new story line next to the old. I wasn?t deeply fond of the new main character and the new angels of zombies, that at least for my taste are too extraordinary despite being a big fan of the genre of zombies....

    It was great fun to read about the main characters from the world of Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin...as well as meeting some new characters. I don't believe you have to read Rot & Ruin and the rest of that series, but it certainly will help. ...

    Zombies take over the world I?m sure some students may like-story involves zombies, zombies with changing viruses & destruction of world. I thought I would like but dragged out for me :( ...

    Jonathan Maberry is one of my favourite authors. This is the start of a new trilogy set in the rot & ruin zombie world. It's so well read. I stayed up really late to finish it & I don't regret it at all. If you're a fan of zombie stories go get this out. Highly recommended! ...

    Really liked the way Joe Ledger and others were brought into the story. ...

    This is a sequel series (duology?) to the Rot & Ruin series by Maberry. I read that series previously and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the artwork on the end pages, to the drab and gory and horrifying world of Mountainside and the Rot & Ruin....it hooked me! So I was super excit...

    I really like the world these books are set in, like how the different series connect. This book seems like a continuation of the Rot & Ruin series, set in a different place with new characters and some old favorites. The events at New Alamo were a bit crazy and more crazy the m...

    Maberry's back to his old world of YA zompocalypse action, and more than ever, we get to see just how screwed up the world got After The End. No longer simply focusing on Benny Imura and his crew, we also get to follow the POV of a new survivor: Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez, a bi Mexican gi...

    Here I was - thinking that Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong were all living happily in Mountainside after defeating St. John. Apparently not! It seems like they are off on a new adventure to find out what happened to the fledgling government in Asheville, North Carolina. Needing to detour ...

    I loved this book it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds the best Rot and Ruin book yet and now I really want the sequel in my hands now. I really loved the characters Benny and his group I really liked Gutsy and her group so much too I liked the LGBT part too pairing Gutsy wi...

    I?m pretty excited about this series. It?s got a lot of classic characters and some new promising ones. Maberry is impressive in that he can switch over to YA pretty easily and write the characters very well...as if he was recently a YA himself. I enjoyed the Rot & Ruin series ...

    Wow. This was everything I wanted. It was such an awesome reunion of characters from my favorite stories (Joe Ledger Series and Rot & Ruin Series). And the new characters are forging a way into my heart. I found it hard to put down. I will admit, I was dancing when the "hunter" app...

    Readers should be aware that this book is not just a new Benny Imura book, but also a Joe Ledger book AND a Dead of Night book, so beware readers who have only read the Rot & Ruin stories... ...

    I had thought the Rot & Ruin series was over so seeing this one was a pleasant surprise. I was happy to see what Benny and his crew were up to after defeating the reapears. There is a lot going on especially with the relationships between friends and the couples which was interesti...

    Jonathan Maberry's newest about Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin does not disappoint. I am a huge fan of the Rot and Ruin series and loved his characters. This newest endeavor introduces a few new characters, most notably, Gutsy Gomez. Gutsy is smart and analytical. As the story begins...

    Towns and settlements swamped by the dead, zoms, or the biters aka los muertos vivientes, the living dead. There is some kind of evolution in these dead there are the Ravagers, living dead but with some brains in ways still able to kill and maim. ?The Broken Lands were broken indeed...

    Oh, Mr. Maberry! Did the zoms eat your heart? How could you leave me like that; right at the most exciting part! Of course, this entire book is full of exciting parts! There were a couple of places that really stood out for me! When Gutsy was talking about her love for her dec...

    Okay! At first I thought this would be the first book that flopped, but after the first 50 pages I finally started to get hooked once again. Jonathan Maberry is an amazing author who has changed the view on zombies. I honestly have loved every book and cannot wait for the next one to f...

    Hardback with red and black cover. Returning to the apocalyptic world of Jonathan Mayberry's "Rot & Ruin" with a new teen survivor, Gutsy Gomez. Reflecting political and ethical topics of current times: racism against BIPOC and immigration. Gutsy is a great character and I t...

    There are not enough Stars available to give to this book, if you have read the Rot & Ruin quartet then you know just how good Jonathan writes, until now I thought I knew how good his stories are, this has just raised the bar to a new and even better height. The story picks up fro...

    Yaaaay! So glad to be back in the Rot & Ruin world with the promise of even more books to come after this #1. The setting in the remnants of a Texas border immigrant detention center and the dastardly deeds now going on there anchors this future tale firmly in the actions of our pr...

    This book was everything!! What a great read. Benny and friends have always held a special place in my heart. They are so relatable, funny, caring, badass and more. I liked Gutsy and friends as well, I think they were a nice addition. Don't even get me started on bringing Joe and Sam b...

    I rather have read a direct continuation to the Rot & Ruin-series than a new story line next to the old. I wasn?t deeply fond of the new main character and the new angels of zombies, that at least for my taste are too extraordinary despite being a big fan of the genre of zombies....

    It was great fun to read about the main characters from the world of Benny Imura and the Rot and Ruin...as well as meeting some new characters. I don't believe you have to read Rot & Ruin and the rest of that series, but it certainly will help. ...

    Zombies take over the world I?m sure some students may like-story involves zombies, zombies with changing viruses & destruction of world. I thought I would like but dragged out for me :( ...

    Jonathan Maberry is one of my favourite authors. This is the start of a new trilogy set in the rot & ruin zombie world. It's so well read. I stayed up really late to finish it & I don't regret it at all. If you're a fan of zombie stories go get this out. Highly recommended! ...

    Really liked the way Joe Ledger and others were brought into the story. ...

    So fun to meet new characters and revisit old friends. Can?t wait for the next one. ...

    ALL THE STARS! review to follow! ...

    I hadn't really explored the zombie genre before and enjoyed this book so much that I decided to read the Rot & Ruin series that precedes it! ...

    O.M.G. I love this zombie universe. Hurry, Jonathan...write the next one! ...

    Soo glad for a new addition to the Rot & Ruin series! I really enjoyed seeing Benny and his gang and meeting Gutsy. ...

    Such an amazing book!!!! Rot and Ruin was an AWESOME series and this is an added bonus!!!!! A must read ...
