Picking up where The First Days ends, Fighting to Survive features the further zombie-killing, civilization-saving adventures of a pair of sexy, kick butt heroines and the men who love them.

A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have found tenuous safety in the walled off center of a small Texas town. Now the hard work of survival begins—finding enough food; creating safe, weather-resistant shelter; establishing laws; and fighting off both the undead who want to eat them and the living bandits who want to rob and kill them.

Rhiannon Frater's Fighting to Survive won the Dead Letter Award for Best Novel from Mail Order Zombie. The first book in the As the World Dies trilogy, The First Days also won the Dead Letter Award and was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner. Tor Books began bringing this series to a wider audience with the Spring 2011 publication of 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 on Rhiannon Frater and As the World Dies

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 (5 out of 5 tombstones)
