    Katarina makes a living slogging through long, tiring days at a diner in Ashley Oaks but she had no idea what a bad day really was until the man came in. Her entire life has been one of bitterness and devoid of any happiness or love but even that is about to look very, very good. At last, Katarina will find her backbone…and a kind of freedom.

    In “A Terrible Moment”, Debbie would rather indulge her unreasoning hatred destroy her entire family than find a way to escape this horrid new danger. She makes a choice that is incomprehensible and from which there is no return…and no salvation.

    Small-town Texas proves to be no safer than the big cities around the country but what does turn out to be true is friendship. Lenore and Ken are as different as night and day and, yet, they have been comfortable with each other. Now, that comfort means everything to them, especially survival. Although there are times when any sane person would want to kick Ken to the curb, what with his endless whining and falling apaart, you still can’t help but like him. Along with Lenore and Ken, we also meet the kickbutt Tito and the indomitable Grandma but whether this little group will make it to safety is up for grabs.

    SERIES REVIEW: The 'As the World Dies: Untold Tales' trilogy is

    SERIES REVIEW:

    The 'As the World Dies: Untold Tales' trilogy is a fantastic collection of short stories that gives the background on some of the favorite characters in the series. Fans of the series will love to learn more about the characters they loved from the books and new readers will get some background on the series and the characters before diving into the books. Each volume consisted of three short stories that featured characters from each of the books in the series. They were fast paced and incredibly well written, which allowed me to read through them very quickly. Although the stories aren't very long, the reader still gets a good grasp on the characters involved as well as the plot of the books - thanks to the writer's exceptional talent. Each story is filled with lots of details and vivid imagery along with a very quick pace and lots of action. Although I'm a huge horror fan, zombies aren't usually my thing (they scare me a bit) - but I have to admit that the author's knack for drawing the reader into the world she created has me hooked. Now I have to face my zombie fear and read the series. I've read several of the author's other works and I know that although I might be scared and probably grossed out, I will not be disappointed in the least. One thing I know is that this author is truly gifted and will easily convert any reader into a fan - regardless of what book of hers they pick up.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    The second book in the Untold Tales series is every bit as good

    The second book in the Untold Tales series is every bit as good as the first!

    The characters in these three untold tales are all in Siege, the third book in the As The World Dies Series. These are their stories.

    Revelation (Katarina’s Story)

    Katarina has been in this series from the beginning. This is her story about her first day.

    Her story isn’t pretty. The only reason she was even conceived was to grow up and take care of her parents. Her father’s dead now and she’s earning money waitressing at a truck stop in Ashley Oaks, Texas to take care of her sick mother. She doesn’t mind the job though. She’s earning her own money and it gets out of the house.

    Dealing with that jerk, Randall, and his wandering hands becomes nothing when the bloodied man stumbles into the cafe, changing her life forever.

    Even though Katarina let her mother dominate her, she never appeared weak to me. I felt she was just waiting for something, for an opportunity to come her way, and then she’d discover herself and really shine.

    She did discover something. She can kill when she has to, and she’s good at it.

    A Terrible Moment (The Unknown Story)


    All of the stories in The Untold Tales have dark moments. This is darker than most and introduces you to peripheral characters. Not all of them make it and are their own worst enemies.

    Debbie is a jealous bitter woman, beaten down by it all. She’s certain her husband is having an affair with his secretary and her jealousy consumes her.

    It festers as they are all trapped in the warehouse together. She’s so focused on her thoughts of revenge, she doesn’t even care about her children.

    This was an uncomfortable story. I can’t imagined being so self involved as to neglect my children, putting them in danger, and not caring. I was mortified at what she did.

    Debbie would be the first one to throw out of the boat if adrift in the sea.

    Friendship in the Time of Zombies (Ken and Lenore’s Story)

    Lenore has no way of knowing that today will changer her life forever. She drags herself out of bed and wanders into the kitchen. Her grandmother has cooked breakfast and, as usual, she’s cooked enough to feed an army. Grabbing a quick bite, she heads off to work at Ken’s Diva Beauty Shop.

    Ken may be her boss, but they are best friends and thick as thieves.

    I just loved these two. Lenore is a moody one but Ken is bubbly, like champagne.

    A small Texas town might not seem like the best place to flaunt his gayness, but Ken could charm the devil and I loved how he needed Lenore as much as she needed him. He was the comic relief for me and I could clearly see him cringing and panicking.

    Lenore was something else. She not only had to figure out how to get them both out of there alive, she also had to keep bolstering Ken up, pushing him to man up.

    I couldn’t get enough of these two and look forward to encountering them again.

    I received this book for my honest review. My review is in no way influenced and I'm lovin this series!
