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.

It's time to clear the hotel.

The fort has grown crowded as survivors of the zombie apocalypse have found safety between its walls. Winter is coming; soon it will be too cold to live in tents and other makeshift shelters. The leaders of the survivors-Katie, Jenni, Juan, Travis, and Nerit-decide it's time for an assault on the zombie-occupied hotel that looms over the town square.

A pitched battle in the banquet room is the start of a harrowing, room-by-room struggle from Reception to roof. As the sun sets, the people of Ashley Oaks gather in the hotel's rooftop ballroom and gazebo to celebrate their survival. Gazing out over the beauty of the surrounding Texas countryside, it's hard to believe that death and danger lurk around every corner.

The fort's search and rescue teams have attracted unwanted attention from bandits who see the fort as competition for food . . . and as a ready source of women. The first attacks are minor, but everyone knows there is worse to come.

And beyond the fort's walls, the zombies shamble, moaning, eyes fastened hungrily upon the living.

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.
