What I'm Reading --- As the World Dies trilogy
It's about the zombie apocalypse, of course, and how two women survive the first day and beyond, making their way through a series of encounters with both the living and the dead, to a small town in Texas (why are zombie books all based in Texas?) One is a battered wife who's children all succumbed to their zombie father (the baby zombie fingers reaching for her under the door was a chilling beginning to this book), and the other is a big time lesbian lawyer (the writer focuses on lots of lifestyles in her books, so I mention it only because she does. It becomes a big part of her story telling style.)
I just got the final book, Siege, but haven't read it yet. The fort becomes too tempting to the remaining military, it appears. Should be interesting to see who survives this final assault and what kind of world they are left with.
Thumbs up for this series! I hope the writer will continue and start a new one.
