5 out of 5 stars

7 short stories/novelettes: out-takes from the Broken World Zombie Apocalypse Series

I just spent a very happy happy two and a half hours reading these, a snip at 99p!

If you've finished the Broken World series and wish there was another book, or haven't read it yet and wonder if you're going to like it, this collection is a terrific introduction to it. 

Some of the stories are about characters we have already met or heard of in the series (such as Brady in Colorado, Vivian's father Roger, two of the girls who got out of the catastrophe at the Monte Carlo casino, and the girl down on Key West who was immune to the virus ~ you'll like the ending to that one, if you've already read the series!).  Others, though, are about people from different places: a girl in rural Oklahoma whose dad was a survivalist, another couple who had made the wrong decision to stay put in a city centre.  Roger was particularly well drawn; shades of Angus, but basically a bad guy, whereas Angus was basically good.

As with the other books in this series, there are a few editing and proofreading errors, but not enough to spoil my enjoyment; Kate Mary is a terrific storyteller.  I would have liked seven more, and hope that some day she will write another book in the series ... I want to know what happened to Brady, Jim, the people at Hope Springs, and some of the new people I met in these stories.  And I'm not finished with Viv and Axl yet! 

Definitely recommended.
