Picking up where The First Days ends, Fighting to Survive features the further zombie-killing, civilization-saving adventures of a pair of sexy, kick butt heroines and the men who love them. A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have found tenuous safety in the walled off center of a small Texas town. Now the hard work of survival begins--finding enough food; creating safe, weather-resistant shelter; establishing laws; and fighting off both the undead who want to eat them and the living bandits who want to rob and kill them.

Fighting to Survive won the Dead Letter Award for Best Novel from Mail Order Zombie. The first book in the As the World Dies trilogy, The First Days also won the Dead Letter Award and was named one of the Best Zombie Books of the Decade by the Harrisburg Book Examiner . Tor Books began bringing this series to a wider audience with the Spring 2011 publication of The First Days.

I think this book is better than the first book. The author has settled a bit more into story and is more comfortable with the characters.

A good exploration of the social nuances that seem trivial or un-important but surface to cause ripples in a growing community of people from different backgrounds.

Definitely taking a page from Romero who she continually reflects on.
