I loved reading the different stories written by these authors. There were some really original concepts regarding the origins and affects and kept me engaged throughout the book. I also found a few authors that I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best anthology yet!! July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow!! This collection of short (and some not so short) stories is absolutely amazing!! I can't express enough how much I love this book!! You get WAY more than expected in this collection. There are so many great stories I can't even begin to try and pick a favorite. While there are a handful that I liked more than others, I truly enjoyed everything I read. There are stories that are as short as 2 pages to as long as a full length novel! I can't believe I only paid 99¢ for this!! What a bargain! I feel like I won a contest getting this so cheap! :-) Many of these shorts are written by authors that I'm familiar with and I totally loved their submissions but, what was a pleasant surprise for me, was how many of these authors I hadn't heard of and how much I really enjoyed what they wrote!! My kindle library has expanded tremendously after downloading SO many full length books based on these shorts, sequels to the installments, and other books from these writers!! I honestly feel like I hit the jackpot with this book!! So, what happens when you get a bunch of talented women together to write stories about the zombie apocalypse?? Download Darlings of Decay and you'll find out!! You won't be disappointed!!!!

Awesome read. 32 of the top female authors of the genre. This book is filled with wonderful zombie tales by a group of amazingly talented ladies that are a credit to this genre. You can't go wrong with this one. I added some new authors to my faves list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of Zombie tales September 15, 2013
By AmyCQ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
LOVED the variety of perspectives and scenarios within the stories and excerpts within this collection. A couple were predictable but the vast majority were interesting engaging and had clever plotlines and unexpected twists--or in some cases expected but so engrossing you cannot stop reading. I'm glad to have finally finished so I can get back to my real life-uh, except that I downloaded several of the sequels to these stories:) Great escapism----and perhaps a survival guide if lessons are taken--gotta work on my cardio-----:)

I didn't read all of these. They seemed all to be sort 'starters,' not a complete story. I probably should have read the description more carefully. Read more
