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.

The over-use of "cousin" was ridiculous

I usually like Frater's writing style. Some things can be overlooked. If I took a shot for every time "cousin" was used, I'd have died of alcohol poisoning. Ok. Ok. So Juan and Monica are cousins. Mention it a few times & it should be good. There were so many mentions of their relationship though that it a distracting.

Ok. Off my soap box now. I was never much of a fan of the ghost thing but what the heck. It's Sci Fi so all is well. Decent pacing. Good action.

decent setup. hard to finish tho

almost feels like she tried to make a new Jenny and it doesn't go well so much character fleshing out leads to very low action and drama. didn't like the book but will give next one a shot

New narrator was a struggle

I really enjoyed the previous books in this series, and listened to them all back to back. However, this book was considerably shorter, and with a different narrator. listening to characters we know pretty well through several books, that sound completely different, somewhat killed the story for me. I’m not even sure if I disliked the story, the narrator, or both.

Great read

I just couldn't put this book down once I started, and finished it in one sitting, I was hooked. Fast paced and action packed, it kept me on the edge of my seat, I really loved the characters, Ted was a real pain, I was hoping for some poetic justice! I can't wait for the next book to find out whats next, I'm loving this series. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Worst narrator ever

I love this author. She creates amazing stories and her writing style is wonderful.
However this narrator spoils the books entirely. Cassandra Campbell narrated many of the other books in the series and she’s excellent.
In contrast this narrator has a horrible, unappealing, harsh voice which is not suited to narration. I’ve spoken to a couple of my friends and my sister who agree that she spoils these amazing books.
