I picked up this one when it was free. I'll definitely be taking a look at the author's other books.
One of the things I noticed right off the bat when reading this anthology was how perfectly paced the stories were. None felt too long nor too short. I never felt rushed and the buildup to the big climaxes in each while not always surprising were at least satisfyingly done.
So how did I like the stories individually? Well read on to find out!
The Blanket – This story was short but packed quite a punch in the gut. It reminded me of the scene with those ten tiny fingers all those years ago and I wasn't expecting that. Very well written but a sad story indeed.
The Scavengers – Now this was a story I think would make a great full length novel. Not only were the characters very unique but also the idea of family units forming amongst the dead while bizarre was kinda cool to see. Plus that ending, I must know more!
The Building - Out of all the stories this was probably the one I struggled with the most. Don't get me wrong it was well written and all but I just found it to be a bit too predictable and that did lessen the enjoyability factor a touch for me.
The Necromancer – I haven't read many stories with necromancers so it was hard for me to sort of grasp all the goings on in the story. Once I did get a foothold however whew boy was this a good story. I won't give away the ending but the character deserved it is all I'm saying.
The Race – If any story had me rooting for the deaths of the characters this was the one. Survival is the name of the game and Laurie surely wanted to win at all costs. However, even in a Zombie apocalypse one should remember not to be selfish as the term what goes around, comes around applies heavily here. Great story though, especially the end.
The False Start – This story felt probably the closest to a full length novel and I believe this was the longest story in the anthology as well. The build up was fantastic, the middle action packed and thrilling, even the ending was great (for some of the characters anyway...).
Overall, I really have no complaints with this anthology. The stories as mentioned above were properly paced. I never felt like I was reading something incomplete. Plus, the writing and the quality of the stories were what I'd come to expect from this author. I highly recommend checking out this anthology once you get the chance.
With that being said, I'll be rating Zombie Tales from Dead Worlds by Rhiannon Frater ★★★★.
"Zombie Tales from Dead worlds" has 6 very interesting stories:
The blanket: If you enjoyed the story of Emma from "Untold tales" you will ike this one... as father of a kid of 4 years old, this story almost made me cry... is a short tale but really good
The Scavengers: the plot is great the only problem is that some how feels like it was just the first chapter of a zombie novel (I hope Ms. Frater have plans to make a book based on this story).
The Bulding: I didnt like much this tale... it feels kinda odd at some point .. I didnt feel any kind of conenction with the main character it actually got me upset at some point but i made myself keep reading just to know what happened in the end ... btw it got a great ending... if you like the story of Senator Paige Brightman from "untold tales 3" you will like this one
The Necromancer: Another nice tale, adds something new to the zombie stories plus got a really good potential for a novel, to me the last part of the tale feels a little bit rushed but overall I enjoyed reading this tale.
The Race: This is my second favorite tale from the book not only because of the story but also because the way it was written. The story is like Rhiannon Frater meets Garth Ennis.
The false Start: The book ends with another great tale, this was my favorite and the story was very well executed, nothing like a full action tale from the begining of the zombie outbreak
"Zombie Tales from Dead Worlds" is a great collection of tales, if you like Rhiannon Frater's books you wont be dissapointed with this one

I find how she writes hold my interest in both the story line and the characters, and yes I find my self thinking don't do that, but what I really like about her writing is she takes chances with her characters, none of them are really safe just because they are the main character.
To me she sets the the standard for others to follow.
All gruesome and thrilling, some I felt more interested in that others. Overall a good collection.
