Very interesting book. Great world building in this story. It felt like a Tolkien type world. The creatures were interesting. I like the care of the environment and respect for other life forms that was shown in this book.
The book is sweetly romantic. There is an absence of blood and gore and graphic sex that gave me a good feeling. While the impending darkness hangs in the background of your mind, the characters are great to each other. They work together, we don't see jealousy or meanness in the primary group of creatures that help the chosen one on her quest.
The world and the characters here were very complex. I was worried the chosen would have to make this trek on her own but she has plenty of help, perhaps because she is so gracious and loyal to her friends.
I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a wonderful fantasy with characters on a quest. The main character must constantly choose between good or evil. That is not as easy a choice as you would think it would be.
It's a very involved and wonderful world and it is filled with well thought out and complex characters. Very good book.

This story offers a unique perspective on how one family handles the end of the world as they know it.
Instead of a world-wide sweeping account of what happens, this story centers on one family. They are going about their daily lives when overnight, everything changes. I got involved in these characters. I felt their angst. I was invested in their daily lives. Then suddenly, the world changed.
I was with them as they accepted their new reality. I was with them when they tried to reach out to other survivors. I felt their sadness and their desperation as they struggled to deal with the changes to the world that affected them in such a profound manner. I was with them as they changed to deal with the new realities that had been thrust upon them.
I enjoyed their love and care for each other. This is an intimate portrait of a family who woke up one morning and discovered the impossible had happened.
I felt a sense of triumph and sadness as they made their way through the transition from the old world to the new. This is an excellent story. I highly recommend it.

ftermath and other Zombie Stories by Edwin Stark
Very enjoyable read. There are actually three short stories in this little collection. I have to say I think Edwin Stark is brilliant and if he was anywhere besides a tropical rain forest/jungle, somewhere with electricity and a few modern conveniences and a computer that worked and good internet access… you know the things many of us take for granted, if he was anywhere else… he would be a major author by now.
English is not his first language, that’s true. But have no fear, he get the stories across, very well. The essences of the stories is pure, Sci-Fi, very well done.
Aftermath is a story I really did not want to stop. I wanted to hear a little more about Danny Cargill. This is not a zombie story for the gruesomeness of it but… whatever caused the zombies in the first place, well, it might be wearing off. Could it be? This is a story of how people have dealt with the zombies on a long term basis. They are not doing too badly. However, they may need to change how they view their world. I know all of them won’t be able to do change the way they think, but I think Danny will. I am putting my hope and my faith in Danny in this brave new world.
Zombie Cab, oh this one takes me back. I remember reading those little Sci-Fi short stories in elementary school. Not overly long, not overly explained, just enough to make you think and… very, very enjoyable. I love short stories anyway and author Edwin Stark writes some great ones.
The Day Zombies Roamed Venezuela is a unique take on a zombie outbreak. I love the way this story is crafted. It is written by someone who is experiencing the first signs of an outbreak. This story made me feel like I was in the middle of it. It’s intense and it’s real. It sounded like a transmission you might actually get from an outpost… in the jungle… by people who had just come to terms with the fact that zombies are now roaming the country side… or in this case, the jungle. Chilling.
I highly recommend this book and I’m giving it 5 stars because the stories are so good and after all… these stories are coming out of the jungle… out of a place that some of us would say is uncivilized… no matter that the mind of the author is brilliant… He’s crippled by lack of modern conveniences and communication devices… but the stories… oh the stories… Read them and see for yourself.
