The First Days: As the World Dies

The First Days: As the World Dies - Rhiannon Frater Zombies…Who is not fascinated with the world of zombies? Especially the zombie apocalypse! The First Days by Rhiannon Frater is a must read for anyone who wants to survive a zombie apocalyse.This book (as does the entire trilogy) reminds me of a little show called “The Walking Dead”, only BETTER! Guts, gore, drama, suspense…this book has it all. Frater’s writing style is just indescribable. Vivid details, unforgettable characters, stellar story line…you can’t help but become totally absorbed and completely engrossed into this post-apocalyptic world that she has created.Among the characters in this first installment, there is something/someone that readers will relate to. Frater pours so much life, soul, and emotion into all of her characters that it is really difficult to pinpoint which character is your favorite.I found myself flip-lopping between who I would dub my favorite because they all had a really strong presence, and brought more depth and breathed life into the book.The writing style of Frater is so fantastic in that I was able to literally see the scenes unfold before my very eyes, like a movie come to life. I was so emotionally involved that my heart sped up at the right places, my heart broke at the most unforgettable scenes, and a smile found its way to my lips at the most sincere moments.The First Days is a fantastic first book to a fantastic trilogy that I wish I had started reading it a long, long time ago.
