4/5 Rotting corpses

Synopsis: As the survivors continue to seek stability in their lives, forces both inside and outside the fort walls move them toward a final, climactic conflict between the living and the dead.  Jenni, Katie and the others discover that they are not alone, that there is another enclave of survivors whose leaders plan to take over the fort.

Faced with a series of difficult decisions, each choice they make could lead to the deaths of those they love or, if not careful, their own demise. Meanwhile, an army of the dead is descending on the fort. Soon, the living will face their ultimate fear…a siege by the dead.

But they will fight to the end to survive… As the world dies. -Goodreads

Review: Siege by Rhiannon Frater is the final book in the As the World Dies, zombie trilogy that I have so thoroughly enjoyed. The first book in the series was easily my first real initiation into reading the zombie apocalypse as opposed to watching it, and it only got better from there. Alas, the one downside of reviewing all three books in a series during one week is you notice when you’re repeating a lot of the same things, so I’m going to keep this one short. Obviously, I’m pretty convinced everyone should be reading these books (even if you’re not normally a zombie lit fan).

Once again, the strength of this series comes from the two main characters, Jennie and Katie. The chemistry between these two is great, and I wish there were more books out there that focused on a friendship relationship above a romantic one. Both girls have great romantic storylines, even going into the third book in the series, but those stories always come after plots about being there for your friends and kick some zombie butt.

This series is great, and I fully credit it with solidifying my zombie story obsession. Read these books, and not only are you in for a good story but you will be slightly better prepared for when the zombie apocalypse comes knocking on your door.
