Top critical review
Some were great, others not so much

After finding out that one of my favorite zombie authors (she writes about zombies, she isn't one herself, lol), Kate L. Mary, had a story in this collection, it immediately got added to my list for my #31daysofhorrorreads challenge. These seven short stories all take place in an apocalyptic world, the Apocalypse taking many different forms depending on the author. Each tale focuses on a different deadly sin (wrath, gluttony, envy, greed, lust, sloth and pride). While some were quite good, most notably Greed Comes Knocking, others seemed disjointed and rapidly thrown together, as if the author was racing a deadline. Some of the tales lacked editing, and the storylines and characters just didn't gel with me. While a few of these stories may have been four-star on their own, the collection itself can only settle for ⭐⭐⭐.
