Publisher's summary

This is the new world. 

Not the old. 

The dead walk, demand human flesh, and howl at the wall surrounding a Fort on a hill. 

A group of Texans stand against the zombie hordes, fighting to create a new community in a dead world. Unknown to them, their legend is starting to spread far and wide.  

Emma Valdez’s life was forever changed when the zombies destroyed the world. She spent all her time and energy systematically killing all the zombies in her town while searching for her missing son. After a yearlong search, she finally put him to rest, and planned to take her own exit from the zombie-infested world. But a dream about a mysterious woman with raven black hair wearing a red sweater compelled her to seek out a community of survivors in Ashley Oaks, Texas. Little did she realize this was the start of a new season in her life.  

The Fort inhabitants, meanwhile, deal with the aftermath of the battle they fought against a massive horde of zombies and successfully redirected away from the town. Many mourn the loss of friends while helping repair and rebuild the Fort’s defenses. Danger still lurks on the outskirts of town as the horde continues its trek into the west. Emma arrives just in time for yet another harrowing battle outside the walls.  

Guided by Juan De La Torre, who is nursing his own wounded heart, Emma finds her place among the Fort inhabitants and uses her excellent survival skills to help save others. It’s not easy being the newcomer among people who have formed a family since the rise of the zombies. She struggles with adjusting and is not always comfortable with the close proximity of so many other people. But the high walls promise safety, and the friendly smiles are welcoming.  

When a zombie of a former Fort inhabitant shows up outside the wall, Emma is part of a team that is sent out to investigate what happened to the group that abandoned the Fort before the big battle. What happened to them might alter the course of the Fort forever.  

After Siege takes place in the days following the battle in Siege: As The World Dies, Book 3. Emma’s background story is featured in The Untold Tales: As The World Dies, Book 3.5.

Disappointing

I loved the first 3 books in the series and was interested to return to Ashley Oaks and catch up with some of the characters from those books.
But honestly, I struggled.
It felt like a novella that was plugged into a predictive text program to bump up the word count to novel size.
I'll probably get the next in the series when it comes out and I hope it's much better.

love the story hate this new narrarator!

I loved reading this series of books and enjoyed listening to the first 3 just as much! Cassandra Campbell was a fantastic narrarator but changing narrarator to Kathy bell Denton was a stupid thing to do. Denton is one of the poorest narrarators I've ever listened to. you shouldn't change narrarators like that after 3 books,especially to one that can't do voices. can't tell who's who with this lady! so very dissapointed!!! I regret buying the last books now 😫

okay book

totally loved the first two books this one was okay but just to me at least not quite as good as the first two. I think part of it had to do with the fact that a different person read the book and honestly is silly as that sounds it messed me all up. I was so used to the person that read the first two and really really liked their enthusiasm and the voices that the lady that did this one did an okay job and I'm sure she did her best but to me just couldn't compare to the lady that read the first two. overall I think it's worth listening to. can't wait to see what the next book is like

Doesn’t live up to prior books

I don’t know if it’s simply because the narrator changes or if it’s the book itself. But this book doesn’t even seem like it’s written by the same person. Flow and mechanics of story are very different. And the narrator is not what this book needs. Couldn’t finish book. Bummed!

Couldn’t finish it.

Listened to the whole series, which weren’t the best books to begin with but they were entertaining enough. Got a little too religious and ghost story for my taste in the zombie genre. Got a little weird, but they were fine enough to try this last book. Tried I did, but I just couldn’t get through it. Instead of focusing on the remaining characters, a new character was brought in who pretty much just replaced another from the previous books. Everyone just kind of got on my nerves after awhile and I found myself rooting for the zombies tbh. There is also a new narrator who is fine but a little too monotone to carry this story. I do like the rebuilding of civilization aspect to the series. The characters were just too cliché. The last narrator is probably the only reason I made it through the series.

So disappointing

I have absolutely loved books 1-3, I’ve listened to the series 3 or 4 times.
This latest installment was such a let down. It felt as though it was written by someone else. As for narration, I realize that Cassandra Campbell is a high bar but this narrator was bad. For as much cultural diversity with the characters, she couldn’t do accents at all. I’ll relisten to series again but will stop at book 3.
