As the World Dies

Rhiannon Frater

Tor Books

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.

REVIEWS

Praise for Siege (As the World Dies, Book Three)

"Intensely compelling. Outstanding…will appeal greatly to zombie fans, but the undead are merely a catalyst for a far more disquieting tale of social collapse.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The First Days

“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”

“Rhiannon Frater paints a vivid picture of what the world could become if a zombie outbreak were to occur. I found myself on the edge of my seat, turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.”
—Bitten by Books on The First Days, 5 out of 5 tombstones
