    More Amazing Work from Rhiannon Frater!

    YES... Rhiannon Frater put together a collection of three short stories to go along with her As The World Dies trilogy (for all her DIE HARD fans... *ahem* that would definitely include me!)

    First short story was Lydia's... *sobs*
    Lydia is totally one of my favorite characters in the As The World Dies series... even though she is already dead at the beginning of the first book. I know right? She is such a HUGE part of Katie's memories, that we care about her as deeply as we do Katie or Jenni! When I found out that Lydia's story was in this book I could NOT get to my computer fast enough to download it! You will cry. You have been warned.

    Second short: *Monica*
    Monica is Juan's cousin and we find her making her way across Texas, after the apocalypse trying to get to her family in Ashley Oaks... Does she make it before the zombies or a fellow human gets to her?

    If you've read The First Days then you'd know! *Brunette taunting you*

    Third short: *Eric*
    Eric promised Brandy a romantic weekend alone... no cell phones... no TV... no computer *gasp*... So when the dead began to rise, it came as no surprise that they knew nothing about it.

    Eric HAD noticed people around him behaving strangely, a bit apprehensive- having strange conversations on the phone, "Grandpa attacked the mail man?! What do you mean he BIT him?" but Eric ignores these things to appease Brandy.

    After over hearing a phone call he wasn't supposed to- that had confirmed Brandy to be a lying cheater and Brandy finding out her sister had been 'bitten' the night before and was now laying in the hospital... Brandy LEAVES Eric stranded at the B&B. Nothing but him, his dog and you know... the zombies!
    ________________________

    God, NO ONE tells a story like Rhiannon Frater! I'm not usually a fan of short stories, I always end up wanting more... Yeah, I'm greedy. As The World Dies: The Untold Tales is a bit different, because I am already so deeply invested in this series and I feel so connected to the characters that I will devour anything to do with the these books! LOVED it- hardcore!

    Lydia and Monica's stories are really short, but no less powerful and compelling than Eric's story (which makes up the majority of this book.)

    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

    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!
