About this author

Rhiannon Frater was born and raised a Texan. Though she has lived in various towns all over the state, she finally settled in Austin, Texas where she met her husband and worked as a governmental consultant.
During her travels for her job, she was inspired to write the story of two women fleeing into the Texas Hill Country in an attempt to survive the zombie apocalypse. Originally published as a serial online under the title AS THE WORLD DIES, she later self-published the series in three novels to satisfy the many fans of the story. The first novel in the series, THE FIRST DAYS, won the 2008 Dead Letter Award for Best Book (Fiction). The second book, FIGHTING TO SURVIVE won the 2009 Dead Letter Award in the same category.

“Wow! I'm more of a badass than I thought.”
Rhiannon Frater, The First Days

“The crux of the argument was that Jenni was a bloodthirsty psycho and would waste all of the ammo while Juan was too stupid to understand guns were made to be fired.”
Rhiannon Frater, The First Days

“During the meeting, Jenni paid attention only when they talked about killing zombies.”
Rhiannon Frater, The First Days

“Juan nonchalantly drove the shovel through the head of the zombified maid, and the drama was over.”
Rhiannon Frater, The First Days

“Well," Jenni said with a wry smile, "at least we live in Texas, where people actually own guns and hunt.”
Rhiannon Frater, The First Days

Darlene Ruiz I love when I find awesome new vampire stories to read!!! I adore the Tale of the Vampire Bride and The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride. I hope a third book is in the making!! Gothic Horror is my favorite and my second favorite is probably vampire stories written in the south. Which is why I am reading Pretty when she dies!! Love Love!!


Beth  (Curling Up With A Good Book) Siege was amazing...Truly an awesome book---Had so much energy and fast paced action but with romance and drama as well!! I loved it!!


Karina Halle Thanks for accepting! You're awesome.

A lot of the ratings are for the self-published version. The recent reviews for the Tor version (which is the BEST version) are by reviewers who got advanced review copies or people who won an early copy. Xpresso Reads blog is hosting a giveaway for Siege right now.

Siege could show up in stores a week or two early. Good luck!
