…ZOMBIES, INFECTED, DEADERS, BLIGHTERS…

Zombie Tales from Undead Worlds contains three exhilarating short stories and three white-knuckle novelettes set in alternate versions of an Earth inhabited with frightening variants of zombies to haunt your waking hours and fill your nightmares. 

In The Blanket, a little boy hides as the end of the world enters his home…
In The Scavengers, two unique survivors struggle to carve out a life for themselves while being threatened by the most frightful beings of all: humanity…
In The Building, a teenage girl lives in a walled-in neighborhood and hopes to escape to the luxury of the high-rise apartment building that towers over it. But to reach it, she must risk the Deaders that roam the streets…
In The Necromancer, a Cleric must deal with hordes of the destructive undead as they threaten a settlement in a futuristic world…
In The Race, seven friends scramble to reach the safe zone while evading the dangers of the murderous Blighters and each other…
In The False Start, a young couple is torn apart as the undead plague begins to take hold of Austin, Texas…

Award-winning author Rhiannon Frater creates vivid new stories set in alternate worlds where people face nightmarish creatures that only desire one thing: to destroy the living.

Once again I had the pleasure of reading advanced copies of these stories by Rhiannon Frater. They are by far some of her best work, and hands down some of the coolest fucking zombie stories I have ever read. Each story is so totally different from the next, yet the thread of the undead ties them together.

The zombies are unique throughout. Most are not your traditional zombies, but there are a few peeks at those dead things we have all come to love!!! I don’t want to say anything really specific about the stories, because I don’t want to give anything away. Let’s just say that after reading two of the stories back to back I had my first zombie nightmare in YEARS!!! 
The thing that I love the most about Rhiannon and her work, is that her stories don’t shy away from being real. She doesn’t force a happy ending where there isn’t one. She doesn’t force anything about her writing. So all you HEA lovers be warned there are some truly heart breaking moments in this book. 

If you like to be scared, if you like rooting for kick ass heroines then pick up this book.
