Publisher's Summary

Picking up where The First Days ends, Fighting to Survive features the further zombie-killing, civilization-saving adventures of a pair of sexy, kick-butt heroines and the men who love them.
A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have found tenuous safety in the walled-off center of a small Texas town. Now the hard work of survival begins - finding enough food; creating safe, weather-resistant shelter; establishing laws; and fighting off both the undead who want to eat them and the living bandits who want to rob and kill them.
Fighting to Survive won the Dead Letter Award for Best Novel from Mail Order Zombie. The first book in the As the World Dies trilogy, The First Days also won the Dead Letter Award and was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Less KISSY and MORE KILLY please!

What was most disappointing about Rhiannon Frater’s story?

What happened? The first book was great action and even with the sprinkles love story here and there it was digestible. This book was painful. It's the Zompocalypse people...if that calls for a handful of survivors having time to sit around and mope about their sexuality and love interests and "hurt" feelings, I will be choosing to lead the zombies.

Which scene was your favorite?

Any scene that didn't make me think this was a Jackie Collins book.

Did Fighting to Survive inspire you to do anything?

Yes, wonder why female writers usually become so cliche.

Any additional comments?

Being a female reader, I was so excited to support a female writer, especially as it relates to a good Zombie story. The writer is obviously talented and intelligent but the writing on this book assumes the reader is not. True story line is overshadowed by predictable plots, 1 dimensional characters and silly scenes. I KNOW..let's ALL split up and clear out a dark hotel and get chewed on by hidden zombie ninjas. Anyone think of having one person scream in the lobby...PIZZA IS HERE and then wait for any undeads to come to you as you pick them off in a safe spot??? A few of the cattle calls and you are sure to get the highly mobile ones first and eliminates the whole...Oh crap , there's a zombie behind the door that I forgot to check.

I Wasn't Disappointed

After reading the first book in this series, I immediately downloaded the second book. It's as good as the first book. The fort is coming along nicely, but now we find outlaws in the Dead Lands, as well as the Zombies. The action is pretty non-stop.
My only complaint is that I didn't really need Jack's point of view at the end. I'm not sure why that was even in the book. But still, I rated it 5 stars.
Now I'm waiting on book number 3. After hearing the epilogue, I know it's coming!
