A little slow in places but an easy and really enjoyable read. Pip Ballantine does a fantastic job of character development so it's really easy to get roped in.

In the Beginning by Philippa Ballantine. This 99c short story is set in the world of the Deacons of the Order, before the time of the novels, Geist, Spectyr, Wrayth and Harbinger.  It tells the story of the first day of the Break, when the undead come in the world of Arkaym, and the horror they bring with them. One small village is caught in the chaos of that day. Some will live, and some will find new purpose.
