Review: Fighting To Survive by Rhiannon Frater

Fighting To Survive is the second book in the As The World Dies series by Rhiannon Frater from TOR.

Book Blurb:

The hundred or so survivors in the fortified heart of Ashley Oaks are running out of food and room.

The newly renovated historic hotel seems a perfect sanctuary - if it can be emptied of zombies.

As search-and-rescue teams bring food, supplies - and more survivors - back to town, they draw unwanted attention.


My thoughts:

Katie and Jenni and the survivors within the fort have settled into a routine.  Each person is assigned a certain duty - kitchen, clean-up, sentry...whatever is needed to keep order.

But things are cramped.  They are running out of room and people are becoming itchy for more space, more privacy - and more bathrooms.

Travis has decided that it is time to move into the ten story hotel next door.  But after the safety of the enclosed fort - everyone is a little shaky about confronting the zombies trapped inside.

With the volunteers in place - Katie, Jenni and Nerit, their no-nonsense sniper, head into the hotel to clear out the zombies.     

The hotel will give the survivors in the fort the needed room to expand - and hopefully bring in more survivors from the outlying areas.

Their efforts are both a blessing and a curse, as lives are lost and unwanted attention brought upon them.

Whether from the walking dead or the immoral living - the survivors of Ashley Oakes have worked hard to secure their safety and the safety of those around them - and they are unwilling to give it up without a fight.

As the World Dies is one of my favorite series and I could not wait to read Fighting To Survive.

I give Fighting To Survive 5 out of 5 stars.
