4.0 von 5 Sternen Post Apocalyptic Goodness 16. November 2012
Von ParanormalLove - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say that I was skeptical at first when I picked up this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. Some of these short stories were amazing and left me wanting the author to turn it into a true novel while others were good as they were; just a short peak into a post apocalyptic world built by some new and promising authors.

There were a few that stood out for me, I enjoyed all the stories, but I truly liked `Shelf Life' by S.L. Dearing probably because it had a little romance to it.

`Lotion' by Jason Brant was a snarky, fun and sarcastic read that had me laughing at times.

`I know my first name is Clossiana' by K.T. Hennessy, this one was a totally different take on the rules of this anthology, so it stood out for me.
And finally `Canyon Bound' by Jon Messenger, I won't say much about it, though it was probably the longest of the stories and the ending came as a surprise for me I hadn't expected it at all.

So bravo to all involved in this anthology it was a fun and different read for me and was thoroughly enjoyable.

All in all this book is worth picking up and giving these short stories a shot. I would love to see Cynthia challenge her readers and author friends again because I would absolutely pick up another one of her anthologies--perhaps she'll do a romance anthology because I can't help but always want that little bit of love in everything I read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent labor of love come to life 17. November 2012
Von Teresa E Scardecchio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Before I begin this review, I will explain how this anthology even came to be. It started out as a Facebook contest created by Cynthia Shepp for her page. She had a few requirements and left the rest to the readers and authors that enjoy her page every day. I read them as they were posted, some were too long to post on Facebook, but Cynthia loved them and wanted to share them with everyone. Apocalypse: An Anthology by Authors and Readers, was born.

Here were the rules:

I want you to imagine that the world as we know it has ended. Total Apocalypse. You only have yourself and one other person you can rely on. There is no power, no water, and you are armed with only a backpack of supplies. In your backpack there are matches, four bottles of water, enough food to make it three days, and one weapon. Spin a web of survival, danger, and conflict. Tell us why the world as you knew it ended, tell us your fears, make up a world in which nothing is the same and survival is hard, and the world is against you. Tell us what you would do, where you would go, how you would get food and water, how you would protect yourself, and how you would make your life over again. You could even throw in some romance and meet some new people to help you on your journey.

The results were STUNNING! From seasoned author to writing novice, each tale was spun beautifully.

Fade to black, by Jase Brantson, had witty dialogue, humor, horror and a surprise ending I never saw coming. I loved how fast and fluid the story was, since it was mostly dialogue.

Artificial Life: The End Of Humanity, by Kate Charles, was amazing. The main character was the cause of the apocalypse, although she didn't really have a conscience about it. The concept of causing the world to stop spinning for an instant, thereby causing it's destruction, was a great idea.

I loved Shelf life, by S.L. Dearing, which also had a bit of a surprise ending. The characters were realistic, and I thought her choice of weaponry was quite brilliant! This was a love story at the end of the world... loved it!

Welcome to the End of the World (Population: Unknown), by R.M. Gilmore, is psychological horror at its finest! I was trapped inside that basement, losing my mind right alongside the main character. I rooted for her until the very end as her story unfolded.

Lotion, by Grayce Jantson (Jason Brant), was hilarious. The dialogue had me laughing out loud, The second character, Greg, is probably the worst person to survive an apocalypse, but added a whole lever of humor and frustration to the story. I didn't expect it to end the way that it did, but it's nice when things aren't always "happily ever after"

Until the End, by Brittany Heister, was written by a young lady my son's age. I was very impressed with her vision of the end of the world, and she had very amusing characters in her story. An egg roll selling zombie is quite unique and made it interesting. I really enjoyed this story!

I know my first name is Clossiana, by K.T. Hennessy, is brilliant. It was such a wonderfully different take on the apocalypse. I don't want to really reveal why it's different, because I don't post spoilers. This story made me rethink how humankind would react to a failing world.

Save Me, by Heather Kirchoff, was written by a high school student. Her story was vividly described, emotionally heart-wrenching, yet a feeling of hope was still kept throughout. Hers is a story of family betrayal, surviving under extraordinary circumstances, and new love. It was a wonderful story!

Canyon Bound, by Jon Messenger, was one of my favorite stories in this anthology. He made everything so real that I felt I could see, smell, hear, the end of the world, his struggle to find others that were alive, his survival in the face of illness, and the inspiring "best friend" that helped him on his journey.

What If, by Jocelyn Sanchez, was short but action-packed. It also had an ending that I didn't see coming! The paranormal cause of her apocalypse was different than the other stories and quite an interesting idea!

Cheyenne Mountain, by Nicki Scalise, was an amazing story. The ultimate betrayal a person can face. I really liked the idea of Anathema. This story had my rapt attention through to the end.

The editor, Cynthia Shepp came up with this idea and brought it to life. I watched this collection of stories go from an idea, a Facebook contest, to a wonderful anthology. This was a labor of love by Cynthia, and she deserves her own little blurb. She put her heart and soul into this project and without it, some of these fine young authors wouldn't be in print right now. Incredible job, Cynthia! <3

5.0 von 5 Sternen 11 authors and 1 Topic! 8. Dezember 2012
Von Eve - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A fantastic read! 11 authors giving one idea and then sent out into their own minds to create a short story for the world to read! Fantastic! I love every story in this book! The main reason is because even though they had the same idea, the same direction to start with each took their own path and made a very unique story! From shorter works to much longer ones, I never found a dull moment! I would recommend this book to anybody who loves stories that deal with the end of the world and the people left behind!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful 9. Oktober 2013
Von Ashley Dunning - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really love that this was a contest that ended up to be a book! I gave 4 stars only because I wasn't a fan of the first two stories. They were very well written, I just wasn't a fan of the story lines to them. Just not my cup of tea. But don't let that discourage you from reading this book! I really enjoyed the rest of the stories! They were phenomenal and the authors are great! I actually wanted more of them! This is a definite must read if you are into apocalypse books! Very well done and put together :)
