What makes your Zombies different, if anything? Zombified by Lyra Mcken: aw what a sad little zombie tale of two children slowly turning into zombies, very clever writing shows off the confusion and emotion.
The prologue was inspired. At this point I am NOT wasting any more of time reading. I am sorry to the remaining authors who contributed. In future I will be a little more careful in what anthologies I buy and not just go on the few names that I recognise. View 1 comment. Awesome book! I read it in one day I could not put it down. I recommend this book it took me a while to get to it as I was behind in my reading but as they say you save the BEST for last. A few of my favorite authors are in this book and I also added a lot more to check out once I Finish a few more books.
It's very hard to rate a book like this. On one hand some of the stories were amazing, on the other I'm incredibly sick of zombies, at least for the moment. Sep 09, Tammy K. There are a couple interesting stories, but not enough to push through to the end of the book. View all 3 comments. For a free book this was freakin awesome!
Laura Bretz Leads All Woman Author Zombie Anthology “Darlings of Decay” – Zombie Apocalypse Monthly
Have discovered some new authors I am really keen to read more of. I usually treat anthologies as samplers of different authors, though I like when they include completely new works, specifically written for that anthology. This is not the case here - nearly all the included works have been published before, so there's nothing new for fans of he genre who read it all. I have one serious criticism though - including samples of novels which are cut at some point with a message "buy the book to read more" is really a no-go for me. Overall I recommend this book, though it might be a bit too much zombies for some people if read in one go.
I know I need some proper break from zombie fiction for a while myself This is an awesome collection of zombie stories by some of the most amazing authors! There is a little something for everyone in here to like. Verstrate so I knew this had to be a great book.

In this anthology you will find lots of different approaches to the zombie fiction genre. Many of the "short stories" in here aren't really stand alone shorts, they are teasers. I don't mind short story bundles intended to help bring notice to full length books, this was just too much of too little.
Some of them did seem interesting but I think several smaller bundles with slightly more story would have done better for getting the authors visibility. Darlings of Decay is an anthology of zombie shorts and novellas written by female authors.
Often, the standard point made in a review of an anthology is that it is a mixed bag; good, bad, and so-so tales populate a book filled with a wide assortment of authors, whether the theme is specific or open ended. Such is the case with this book, though for not entirely for the standard reasons. Instead, it is a mix of shorts, novellas, and primers, for lack of a better term, from an assortment of authors offering up their take on the zombie apocalypse.
Unfortunately, stunted tales like those do leave something to be desired. There were also a small group of novellas that felt rather expansive for such a book. Darlings of Decay did offer up quite a few short stories that were not hints at bigger tales and some were noteworthy. Lopez, and Suzanne Robb all contributed some very entertaining short stories to this work.
Focusing on the quality of the stories, it was indeed a mix of well written, sharply creative tales and dull plodders that were predictable from start to finish. It was clear that each author had to be responsible for their own editing, as there was no uniformity to each story on that score.
Some were clean while quite a few were clogged with obvious typos and awkward phrasing that could have been addressed with a uniform editorial sweep. Treat this book as a sample platter and you will likely not be disappointed in what it has to offer. Nibble here and there-try the short stories and perhaps take a peek at the longer tales and decide whether what they have to offer are worth some bigger bites.
Keep that in mind and you should come away satisfied that you have discovered a few new talented voices in the zombie genre that are worth seeking out further works from. I really enjoyed the snippets, chapters, and full blown novellas included in this anthology. It's fantastic, interesting, and I read quite a bit of new authors I hadn't read before that I am definitely going to be searching out more of. While there were a few snippets that weren't my cup of tea and I skimmed through a bit, the majority of this is really interesting and I think I really enjoyed the snippets, chapters, and full blown novellas included in this anthology.
While there were a few snippets that weren't my cup of tea and I skimmed through a bit, the majority of this is really interesting and I think anyone who loves zombie fiction will enjoy this book.

May 12, Sheena biblio. Like most anthologies, there will be stories you love and hate in them. Overall, not too bad if you like zombie stories. Excerpts and scenes are not short stories! They do not belong in an anthology. Very misleading.
