Great anthology

Below is my edited 2015 Goodreads review of this book when I first read it. Below that is my review of the free audio-book I received this year.

-
I adore this anthology of stories.

I felt each one did well building a world in a short amount of time.

I saw a comment or two about the necromancer story being boring. I certainly didn't see it that way. I didn't care much for the romance side plot, but the actual story was interesting. Zombie plagues and necromancers aren't a variation I’ve seen much of before.

One of the short stories led me to The Living Dead Boy and I'm loving that as well. Apparently, there is another short story related to this story arc in another collection I will just have to get my hands on.

~Disclaimer: I received a free audio-book copy of this book.~

The narrator does an excellent job bringing the story to life. I think it really breathes life into the stories.

There is a good variety of stories. Fairly dark and realistic stories some having a touch of hope.

A heady trip into nightmare!

A short action packed book that takes the reader into the various horrors of the dead risen again. If you are a zombie fan this book will give you what you crave!
The stories and narration were top notch!
