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.

"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")
The second in Rhiannon Fraters series and it held me just like the first. I connected with the characters and could feel what they might be enduring. I historically don't enjoy female narrators as much as males (Oliver Wyman is a voice god) but I thought Cassandra Campbell did a great job. Two thumbs up from me.
Yes love a good zombie tale, and this series is the best to date, full of action and believable characters.
Can' t choose most of the main.
Listened to the first two in this series and all been great.
The series is the best zombie story that I have heard to date, and Siege ranks #2.
Day by day Armegeddon, because it's another really good zombie story of the same caliber.
The excitement at the mall( I don't want to spoil the story with specifics)
In a world overrun by the living dead, man is still the most dangerous predator.
This story has everything! Great character development, drama, suspense, intensity, and thrills! Cassandra Campbell does an amazing job of breathing life into the characters. You care about them, and Cassandra has much to do with that.
