Returning to Texas after celebrating his divorce in Vegas, Rune, a biker cursed with the ability to see ghosts, discovers that the world is being taken over by the hungry undead. Soon he realizes he will have to depend on all his abilities to survive not only the ravenous zombies, but the dangerous men lurking on the back roads of Texas.

Senator Paige Brightman abandoned the Madison Mall and its inhabitants to the hungry hordes, but her journey did not end there. Her attempt to reach the president's safe haven called Central has far reaching ramifications for her and the people she abandoned.

The final in the three stories reveals the aftermath of the great battle in SIEGE as one woman faces the ultimate decision whether to live or die in a world of the undead.

    Rune is a man of honor, belying his appearance as a biker, and my heart broke for him at every turn while I became more and more admiring of him. An unusual communion with the ghosts of the innocent dead leads him on a path he would not have expected of himself and he finds his own kind of redemption.

    Not everyone trying to survive in a zombie-filled world can be a sympathetic character; it wouldn’t be logical that only nice, honorable people would remain. Senator Paige Brightman is the perfect person you love to hate and her being a politician adds to the many reasons to want the worst for her. Her creation of a “distraction” during a harrowing escape is what she’s all about in a nutshell and I found myself urging the zombies on.

    Emma Russell is an everywoman, struggling to make it on her own in this terrible new world. She’s another one who sees ghosts and they just may lead her to salvation.

    Emma is my favorite character of all that are introduced in these three volumes but all have a place in my mind now. This has been the perfect way to gain entry into Ms. Frater’s zombie world and I’m looking forward to reading the full trilogy next. Zombie stories run the gamut from cheesy to enthralling and, having read these collections of shorts, I believe Ms. Frater has hit the enthralling end.

    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.

    More exciting stories in the Untold Tales Series! All of the ch

    More exciting stories in the Untold Tales Series!

    All of the characters in these Untold Tales appear in Siege, the third and final book in the series.

    The Backroads of Zombie Hell (Rune’s Story)

    Now Rune won me over right from the beginning. He brings a spiritual aspect to the story. What happens to the souls of the dead once they become zombies?

    He’s a loner until a ghost tells him it’s time to get moving. There’s somewhere he needs to be.

    This is where a lot of the characters bump into each other from other Untold Tales.

    Rune may look and act like your typical biker. He’s got a mean streak and you don’t want to mess with him. But he’s also intuitive, guided by spirits, and a really decent guy. It would be good to have him on your side.

    The opening scene was deep. The ghost waking him from his drunken stupor is none other than his daughter. I was almost in tears at this sad, gentle moment. I could see how it would be easy to hide away in the hills, isolating oneself from people and drowning your sorrows in booze. Rune lost everyone. But when somethings needs doing, he’s your man.

    The Wickedest Woman in Texas (Paige’s Story)

    It seems there’s always someone who has their own agenda. Someone you just want to b#!ch slap.

    In walks Senator Paige Brightman, wicked witch of the apocalypse.

    Some people have blinders on and can’t seem to grasp that the world is different, their lives are forever changed, and they try to go about business as usual.

    Paige is one of those people. She still thinks her position matters, that what she thinks matters.

    Paige needs to get with the program. Her life isn’t any more important than another’s, and her flippant view of collateral damage just may leave her all alone.

    I enjoyed having someone to despise, some one to offer up to the zombies. The author does an excellent job of making me feel just that.

    Are the Dead Walking The Earth (Emma’s Story)

    Emma never made it into the As The World Dies series. You’ll only read her story here.

    Emma’s story goes beyond the end of the series and shows the aftermath. She shows this to you while telling the story to her two young children.

    I think this one hit me the hardest. Rhiannon expertly showed me some disturbing, heart wrenching scenes. I almost wish I could have shut my eyes at times, they were so vivid.

    I agree, Emma’s story needed to be told. This may be labeled a zombie apocalypse series, but it’s really a story about people. Everyday people dealing without the end of their worlds, and the beginning of hell on Earth.

    I was reduced to tears in the end. It hurt when I cried. I can only imagine how Emma felt.

    I received this book for my honest review. My review is in no way inflenced and I wish there were more.
