Rhiannon Frater's As the World Dies trilogy is an Internet sensation. The first two books, The First Days and Fighting to Survive, have won the Dead Letter Award for Best Novel from Mail Order Zombie. The First Days was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner. And AmericanHorrorBlog calls Rhiannon Frater "a writer to watch".
The morning that the world ends, Katie is getting ready for court and housewife Jenni is taking care of her family. Less than two hours later, they are fleeing for their lives from a zombie horde. Thrown together by circumstance, Jenni and Katie become a powerful zombie-killing partnership, mowing down zombies as they rescue Jenni's stepson, Jason, from an infected campground. They find sanctuary in a tiny, roughly fortified Texas town. There Jenni and Katie find they are both attracted to Travis, leader of the survivors; and the refugees must slaughter people they know, who have returned in zombie form.
Fast-paced and exciting, filled with characters who grab your heart, The First Days: As the World Dies is the beginning of a frightening trilogy.

There are a lot of mediocre books in the genre and this is certainly not one of them. From the very start your are hooked. Its written about real people and how real people react to an unreal situation. Occasionally the author falls into the odd cliche' or two, but the realism and pace more than make up for them. As a bloke, reading a book where to two main characters are women, and loving it, demonstrates just how good an author Rhiannon Frater is and how accomplished she is in this genre.
Wow, this audiobook hooks you in the first sentence and doesn't let you go until the very last word of the very last page. I would recommend to anyone who like The Walking Dead TV series or The Forest of Hands and Teeth Books. Scary, exciting and very involving...first class.
