This reader strongly suggests that all readers of the zombie apocalypse genre
download. There is a story/stories that present a taste of these author's work.
Each tale is different, showcasing the incredible talent and creativity of these amazing woman.. I suggest reading the entire book, noting your favorites, and then downloading the work of the authors you favor.
I'm a guy, a retired ghetto cop from the big city. Brave, courageous, got my own body count, medals of honor usually awarded if the cop died while doing something heroic.
I mention this because I am no more special than my sister's in blue, who have stood by me on stage while the mayor awarded us medals and commendations.
The point I hope that I am trying to communicate is that this compilation is presented as all female. I am speaking to the guys out there. Do not kid yourself. These ladies are masters of zombie Gore and horror! Really great tales that you will enjoy and be captivated by. The tales are not "female orientated". The tales are wonderfully demented just like my sister's in blue that saved my neck a few times. I must say however, while my sister's were rescuing my butt....It would have been great if they were taking out a few readers!
This anthology had a few stories that had us looking at zombies and the apocalypse in a new light. Which I think is to be expected when you gather up these many writers because - <em>virus, outbreak, head to the mall to gather supplies</em> would get tiring very quickly. Sadly the majority of the stories failed at delivering a great story. First off, some of these were short stories and others were just ads to get you to buy the full novel (not cool). Some of the unique perspectives were wasted while a couple could easily be full novels.
Some characters were flat and unremarkable and the stories followed suit. Some authors tried too hard - to be funny and I don't know the writing felt off.
I enjoyed a handful - the ones I remember:
What Zombies Fear by Laura Bretz
Bob by Tonia Brown
Eva Wilde Vs The Zombie Apocalypse* by Jen Marie Wilde *nothing unique here but a nice book to end the anthology.
There was least one more that I enjoyed but the title escapes me.
I hate DNFing books and I didn't come close to with this one, but man I had to turn the "time left to finish book" counter on the bottom of my Kindle Fire off because it was depressing me. There was a chapter that was going to take me over three hours to finish, wait, what? Three hours?!? You'd think I was reading backwards.
After all this mudslinging I still recommend this if you love the genre. I mean, we're talking zombies here :) Read one story a week in between books or when you're in a slump. Some of these stories will have you running to a good novel in a heartbeat.
Some of it was pretty gross (but it's a ZOMBIE anthology) and I loved the fact that it was all written by women authors. While there were a few snippets that weren't my cup of tea and I skimmed through a bit, the majority of this is really interesting and I think anyone who loves zombie fiction will enjoy this book.
