Worth of Souls Series Review


Check out the Book Trailer. Bonnie R Paulson plays the mother!!

Cost of Survival, Book #1

COSfrontAnger isn’t an emotion anymore, it’s more of a survival mode I can’t afford to let go.
My dad predicted World War III would happen in his life, but he died two years before… with my brother…
…before Mom and I walked in search of refuge from the bombing.
Strengthened by her faith, Mom never feels alone. But me? I don’t know what to believe or where to turn. Someone once said keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but I disagree. Friends scare me the most. They know me and my mom. Nothing about them is safe.
The ones in charge… Control everything…
Crud, I’ve started crying because I’m scared I won’t survive World War III. But a bigger part of me is scared I will.
My mom is bleeding in my arms and she’s making me promise to follow her three rules.
Don’t trust anyone.
Stay alive.
How long do I need to break all three?
My Thoughts:

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

In this book the world as we know it does not exist.  The government controls every aspect of a person’s world. World War 3 is happening. You don’t know who to trust.

Kelly’s world is literally torn upside down. She loses everyone close to her. She remember the 3 rules her mom has drilled into her; don’t trust anyone, pray, stay alive.

How would you survive if everything you ever known is suddenly gone? Kelly finds refuge with a boy she barely knows and his dad. Is that a good idea or will it ultimately cost her, her life?

I’ve read many books by this author. I always think they can’t get any better. Each book I read becomes my favorite. This is definitely one of my favorite authors.


Exchange Rate, Book #2

exchangerateI’m pregnant and I couldn’t be more excited. But the community Bodey, his dad, and I live in has rules. Rules that make Mom’s rules seem like safety nets.
Only 200 people are allowed at a time. My baby will make it 201.
The leader is making me choose someone from our house to die so there will be room for my child. Either I make the decision or they take… my…
Even in the craziness that the world has become, I refuse to believe only 200 can live in it at once.
The “community” is safe-ish, comfortable. We have food, warmth, and there isn’t immediate danger of being robbed while we sleep.
Doesn’t it make sense we’d have to exchange something for all that?
I’ve survived this long. Maybe that’s enough. Maybe I should die so my family can live.
Or maybe I can get through the lines and find a people worth sacrificing for.
My Thoughts:

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

This is book 2 in the Worth of Souls series. This book picks up right where the last one left off.

John, Kelly, and Brody have finally found shelter and food. They are part of a community where everyone pulls their own weight.

This is great until Kelly ends up pregnant. The person in charge of this community has a strict 200 person capacity level. No children are allowed in at all.

Kelly now has to decide who is going to live and who will die within her small family in order for her child to live. I can’t imagine having to deal with that kind of decision.

Things are not as they seem within the compound either. Is it better to be in the compound or to risk it all and stay on their own?

This story keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to know what happens next. 

Worth of Souls, Book #3

Running for my life and six months pregnant, I’m terrified but confident in my decisions.With my love and family behind me, captured by the same man who chases me, I have only a small window to find help. The baby needs to come out eventually.Nobody said the end of the world would define people so much. Everywhere I turn I have to prove my worth.Mom was gone before I learned my value lay in my eyes. Not others.
But how would that save Bodey? How could my worth change how the world me spins?If I can’t figure it out, everyone I love will die, trapped in a place where even following the rules won’t protect us.

My Thoughts:

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

This is the 3rd book in the Worth of Souls trilogy. I honest wish there were more books. I loved the story and the characters.

In this book Kelly is 6 months pregnant and out on her own. She left the compound in order to the save the lives of her family. Things are not the way she left them in the compound though.

This book was fast paced, I read it in one day. A lot happened in this book that it’s difficult to write a review without giving away spoilers.

Since this was the 3rd and final book, a lot of loose ends were tied up. I love when all the questions you have are answered and there are no cliff hangers. I was not expecting plot events to happen and I love when I don’t know what is going to happen next.

If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend it.


Bonnie R. Paulson mixes her science and medical background with reality and possibilities to make even myths seem likely and give every Bonnieromance the genetic strength to survive. Bonnie has discovered a dark and twisty turn in her writing that she hopes you enjoy as much as she has enjoyed uncovering it. Dirt biking with her family in the Northwest keeps her sane.Follow on:Facebook / Blog / Twitter / Goodreads / Newsletter / Literary Addicts / Amazon
