Publisher's Summary

Siege is the conclusion to Rhiannon Frater’s As the World Dies trilogy, which should appeal to fans of The Walking Dead. Both The First Days and Fighting to Survive won the Dead Letter Award from Mail Order Zombie. The First Days was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner.
The zombie illness has shattered civilization. The survivors, who have found tenuous safety in Texas, defend their fort against the walking dead and living bandits. Katie has made peace with the death of her wife and is pregnant and married to Travis, who has been elected mayor. Jenni; her stepson, Jason; and Juan - Travis’s right-hand man - are a happy family, though Jenni suffers from PTSD. Both women are deadly zombie killers.
In Siege, the people of Ashley Oaks are stunned to discover that the vice president of the United States is alive and commanding the remnants of the US military. And what’s left of the US government has plans for this group of determined survivors.


What the Critics Say

"There's a lot of great zombie fiction out there, but Rhiannon Frater sets the gold standard. She's got the goods." (Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Apocalypse of the Dead)
"The First Days is one of the few zombie novels fueled by the power of feminine protagonists in an apocalyptic world gone wrong." (Harrisburg Book Examiner, "Best Zombie Books of the Decade")

REALLY!!! Does it have to end? :(

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes I would recommend the book and the series for all die hard Zombie fans. I have been listening to this series along with Zombie Fallout and the main difference is this series does not have a comic relief team such as Mike and BT.... BUT Frater does a EXCELLENT job on character development and developing realistic situations that sucks you in and will not let you go. There are very little happy endings but Frater resolves the good and the bad and I walked away satisfied with the series. This series is a nail biter with non stop brutal action including a tragic love story. In the third installment several main characters sacrifice their lives for those around them....the readers are introduced to the government (or whats left of them), "karma" makes her rounds to those that need a good a** kicking, and the fort gets quite a few new members.

First book I cried over - Great end to trilogy

I'll admit, the author drove me crazy in book one with her need to describe everyone's attire EVERY single time they're mentioned. She toned it down with this installment and I'm grateful! I won't ruin the end for anyone but I was very sad. It makes sense though. I just wished it was a happier ending - for all the lead characters. I'm all for happy endings. I just "tried" to read Feed and was very disappointed. This is what a zombie book is supposed to be about. Us against them. Trials, triumphs and a journey. I really enjoyed part 2 and part 3 better than the first one though it was good just a little too "harlequinesque" for my taste but hang in there it gets ALOT better. At the end I was so entangled in the characters that I truly was a blubbering idiot, crying when someone didn't live happily ever after. Great book!
