Synopsis

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 righthand 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. What’s left of the US government has plans for this group of determined survivors.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

It looks good but shies away from tackling the themes that really matter, the themes that could have pushed this book to the next level.

Frater has a knack for characterization. She is able to make even the most die hard non-zombie fan like myself, like her zombie killers.

Siege is not at all what I expected from the cliffhanger at the end of Fighting to Survive, but it was an absolutely fabulous finish to a series that has become one of my favorites.

My only problem with the book is that it marks the end of the series... I guess I’ll just have to read them all again.

Well everything is bigger in Texas and this book is nothing but EPIC. I was already feeling a few Texas comparisons in the works for what I thought might happen. Fort Davis, Waco or the Alamo. Frater brought it. She used aspects of all three Texas hot messes, twisted them, added zombies and left me flipping pages like a wild woman.

Overall it was a good and bloody tale that had a bit of romance, a bit of insanity, violence, political vengeance and mystery all rolled into one.
