THE FIRST DAYS: AS THE WORLD DIES introduced Jenni and Katie and their harrowing journey to the makeshift fort in the Texas Hill Country. FIGHTING TO SURVIVE: AS THE WORLD DIES continued their story as the two women joined the members of the makeshift fort in Ashley Oaks in the fight for survival against not only zombies, but the evil designs of bandits.But theirs is not the only tale to be told.In the second volume of the AS THE WORLD DIES UNTOLD TALES experience three terrifying tales of those who are forced to face the unrelenting and hungry walking dead.In a nearby town Ken and Lenore have started their regular routine at Ken’s Beauty Salon. A terrible accident brings the undead plague to their front door and soon the best friends are scrambling to escape their overrun town…Katarina is just finishing her shift at a roadside café when a badly injured man stumbles through the front door. She quickly realizes that to survive she must learn to kill…And finally, a trapped family must face the fearsome truth that sometimes zombies are not the worst monster they have to fear as the world dies…
Untold Tales Volume 2 is just as magnificent as the first volume. Even though I have not read any of the As the World Dies Series, I still enjoy these stories immensely. I think that the Untold Tales will actually make me enjoy reading the As the World Dies series much more, but they are also great insight for fans of the series.
Untold Tales Volume 2 is set up much like the first with two shorter stories, followed by a longer one. The first story “Revelations” is Katarina’s origin story, which is very sad. Her story is very much about freedom and gaining independence. The second shorter story is “A Terrible Moment” which is the unknowns’ story. This is a story about people in the same universe as the series, but their story does not naturally coincide with the main series. This story has to be one of the more disturbing ones, but it is so perfectly written that it is defiantly one of my favorites.
The much longer story is “Friendship in the time of Zombie.” It is the beautiful origin story of Ken and Lenore. These two best friends have to endure many things, but their friends hop never falters. The most enduring thing about the third story is the loyalty both characters show to each other even when facing the worse of situations.
I love the first volume and now I completely love the second volume. I can only imagine what is going to happen during the third volume. Go ahead and grab any volume of the Untold Tales, read it, and then tell me you do not love it. It really is a must read series for zombie fans.
