Baker & Taylor
In the town of Ashley Oaks, Texas a handful of survivors of the zombie plague hope to start a new world from their planned fort, but another group of survivors led by a power-hungry senator threatens their vision for the future.

McMillan Palgrave

It's the End of the World as We Know It
But all is not lost. A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have defended their new home-the fortified town of Ashley Oaks, Texas-against ravenous zombies and cruel bandits. They have gathered supplies, established a civil government, and even found love among the ruins.

An excellent tactician who has led the town's defenders more than once, Katie has made peace with the loss of her beloved wife. She is remarried and pregnant with her husband's child. Jenni, a zombie killer beyond compare, fled an abusive husband and formed a new, loving family with her stepson, his dog, and her new love. Jenni's still the first to volunteer for any dangerous mission-but now she has a reason to survive.

A deadly supply run leads to the discovery of hundreds of survivors trapped in a failing shopping mall, their lives controlled by a power-hungry U.S. Senator and the military men and women who follow her. News that there are civilians living in peace outside the mall is earth-shattering for all of them.

The final battle for the fort-and, in a way, for the soul of America-is about to begin in Siege, the conclusion to Rhiannon Frater's award-winning series As the world Dies.

There is a lot to like about this series of books. In this one, sometimes plot developments seem a little easy, a little too tidy for me. This last book added a certain paranormal element that I felt was a cop-out to an otherwise tragic storyline. This last book fell a little flat for me.

I am surprised to say that I liked the last as much as the first two. It's not often an author can keep it together over a series of books.
