    I¿ve never read the As the World Dies trilogy but I always li

    I’ve never read the As the World Dies trilogy but I always like a good zombie story so I was delighted to have a chance to get an introduction to the trilogy through these collections of short stories and novellas. I’ve just finished the first and I must say I’m impressed.

    In the first story, we meet Katie and Lydia and, in just a few brief moments, begin to understand what all the alarming news reports mean. The relationship between the two young women is heartwarming and I quickly grew to like them. is this the same Katie that stars in the trilogy? I’m not sure but I hope so because I want to get to know her better.

    Monica…now this is a woman I can really appreciate, not afraid to do what has to be done without hesitation and I love her almost immediate acceptance that the zombies are real and that she has her cousin’s obsession with zombie movies to thank for her own survival. Her goal now is to reach Ashley Oaks, Texas, where she hopes to find her family but a chance meeting with Ramon might stop her in her tracks.

    Eric’s story is a stark reminder of how isolated we would feel when, for whatever reason, we don’t have access to instant communication with the outside world. It’s bad enough when the cellphone gets lost or the cable gets cut off…imagine if you couldn’t find out what was happening even if, as in Eric’s case, the disconnection is self-imposed. Still, his intentions were good and I couldn’t help empathizing with him while I also wondered how he managed to become so controlled by the unpleasant Brandy. As the day unfolds, Eric will learn where his priorities must lie but, eventually, he’ll find others who are also trying to survive. Ashley Oaks is the haven he and Stacey will seek but they won’t make it without their stalwart companion, the loveable Pepe, who has a knack of sniffing out the zombies. I love all three of these characters and enjoyed my first introduction to Jenni as well as running into Katie again, if only briefly.

    As I am a huge fan of the As The World Dies trilogy, I just had to check this book out. It was a good read minus a few typos in the book :-p It was nice to know some of the other characters back stories. Be sure to read the first and second books before reading this one. Rhiannon Frater never disappoints!
