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.
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.
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.
