Book Description

“Katie Cord mixes love, horror, sex, and death together to create something beautifully twisted and Barker-esque.”
--Peter Clines – author of The Ex-Heroes Series

"Katie Cord gives us a startling glimpse at the most wicked and perverse sides of humanity. The best part? You can't look away."
--Eloise J. Knapp - author of The Undead Situation

Filled with horror, carnage, redemption, a sprinkle of satire, and a whole lot of zombies, this book has a little of everything for the zombie fan.

HE LEFT HER AT THE ALTAR, SHE LEFT HIM TO THE ZOMBIES contains fourteen short storiesthat will make you laugh, cry, look for a vomit bag, and then come back for more!


“This is an enthralling, engaging, and terrifying piece of zombie literature.”
--Timothy W. Long – author of The Z-Risen Series

“Read on. Enjoy. And relish a fresh new take on the zombie apocalypse. Katie Cord’s HE LEFT HER AT THE ALTER, SHE LEFT HIM TO THE ZOMBIES will not disappoint you.”--Rhiannon Frater – author of The Dying Days Series

4.0 out of 5 stars Doubleshot Reviews book review December 29, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Technically 3.5 stars, but worthy of rounding up.

Would you take the sage advice of a friend who had long since been dead but has been brought back with a bit of VooDoo magic? What would you do if you found out that instead of hitting puberty you were becoming a flesh eating creature and everything about your life was a lie? How far would you go to save your love from living a life of pain and suffering from a horrific illness? These are just a few questions that can be raised when reading He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies by Katie Cord.

Consisting of 10 short stories, all of which revolve around a female main character, He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies is a fun read with a number of stories that I greatly enjoyed. There were, as always, a few that weren't up my alley, but that is to be expected in most anthologies. Cord does a great job telling a story in a limited number of words. Being a newly published author, there are a few aspects to Cord's writing style that could be fleshed out, but that will happen as she continues her writing. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author.

If you are fan of anthologies that are a quick fast paced read, definitely give He Left Her at the Altar, She Left Him to the Zombies a try

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust me this is a great book February 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book at the urging of a friend. Feeling an obligation to follow through since I am always blabbing to people what books they should read, I ordered the book with no expectations.

Well, I am so glad I fulfilled my obligation. Obligation turned into delight as I whipped through this small but wonderful collection of short stories.

What I enjoyed best was the fact that Ms. Cord understand that readers have brains and don't need to be spoon-fed ever bit of information to be entertained. She gives little back ground but drops us into the world of her stories and we can begin to see that world with each story. How fantastic is that for the reader that likes to process the words and plot as they read?

The last two stories in the book do switch it up a bit. They are written with great confidence by a new writer. Again, the reader isn't assaulted by background, just the details necessary for you to enjoy the story and get the point.

I do hope Ms. Cord understand the strength of her talent and keeps writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Debut from a Promising Author April 2, 2012
Format:Paperback
Entering Katie Cord's world is akin to exploring the food court at a mall: all of the colors and smells are turned up to a saturating intensity. These stories read like the moment in a superhero story when the hero suddenly acquires powers. In these cases, the powers are internal, as the protagonists are forced to abandon the values they had once held. Pervasive throughout these stories is a sense of dramatic irony: we all know that the big bad is coming, and the suspense of wanting the characters to realize their circumstances makes for page-turning reads. Cord shifts effortlessly from one age group to the next, between socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, and settings. The cumulative effect is a sense that the world of the reader is in the same peril experienced on the page. Like Cord's characters, we too would do well to take a hard look at our surroundings, raid the garage for camping gear, and race for the hills.

5.0 out of 5 stars ARGH BRAINS! ZOMBIES! FUN! February 25, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a big fan of zombie movies, but this was my first experience with zombie fiction, so I really didn't know what to expect, but I really did enjoy reading this book. The author had a great time exploring various possible scenarios involved in a zombie apocalypse. Everything was narrated from a female perspective, and the stories all displayed realistic characters coming to grips with a new harsh reality. Two of my favorite stories were "Daddy's Girl" and "Border Patrol"

Also the excerpt, and bonus story included were both gems! I think Katie's next book looks very promising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read February 28, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must admit that the title of this particular book is what caught my interest, but once I started reading the stories, they are what kept my interest. The stories are kinda tied together and my friends tell me that have an odd sense of humor, so these were right up my alley. Reading this book will be a very pleased way to spend an afternoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, interesting, and exciting! May 8, 2012
Format:Paperback
The stories were so engaging and interesting! I really enjoyed reading each one. It's fresh and I can see so much potential in what could come out of this, I can't wait to read what's next from Katie Cord! Mature into a flesh-eating zombie at puberty?! I mean, that's so original, and Katie pulls it off. I love how each story is, of course, from a different perspective, but the characters have clearly distinct voices from one another and their stories occur in different points in time - spanning years even. Each story gives you a perspective that after reading all the stories, you can connect the dots about how it all started and where it ends up. I love this structure, because it was fun to learn another "piece of the puzzle" with each story. Well-written and very readable, like I said, I can't wait to see how she expands on what's she's created here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Strong Characters, Unique Ideas October 30, 2012
Format:Paperback
I picked this book up at a zombie event. Usually I read full length novels (not short stories) but Katie's stories pulled me in. Each story is unique and gives the reader a look at how the zombie plague might come into someone's life and change it forever. I was most impressed by Katie's ability to alter her writing style to fit the voice of each character. As a writer myself I know how difficult that is to do.

My only complaint is that I finished reading the collection too quickly! As I turned the last page I found myself wishing for just one more story, one more delicious take on the zombie genre.

Keep writing, Katie!
