Review: The First Days by Rhiannon Frater

About This Book
Katie is driving to work one beautiful day when a dead man jumps into her car and tries to eat her. That same morning, Jenni opens a bedroom door to find her husband devouring their toddler son.
Fate puts Jenni and Katie; total strangers; together in a pickup, fleeing the suddenly zombie filled streets of the Texas city in which they live. Before the sun has set, they have become more than just friends and allies; they are bonded as tightly as any two people that who have been to war together.
During their cross Texas odyssey to find and rescue Jenni’s oldest son, Jenni discovers the joy of watching a zombies head explode when she shoots it’s brains out. Katie learns that she’s a terrific tactician and a pretty good shot.
A chance encounter puts them on the road to an isolated, fortified town, besieged by zombies, where fewer than one hundred people dig to the shreds of civilization.
It looks like the end of the world. But Katie and Jenni and many others will do whatever they have to stay alive. Run, fight, pick each other up when they stumble, fall in love….anything is possible at the end of the world. 

My Rating
My Review
Rhiannon Frater has done it again and instead of kick a kick-ass female vampire, we have two kick-ass strong human women who are thrown in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and are Fighting to Survive anyway that they know how. 
Jenni was my favorite character in this story because she didn’t let what happened to her affect her in a way where she didn’t want to go on with her life. Yeah she beat herself up but she also got up dusted herself off and saved what she could the best way she knew how. Katie was amazing and I love how she just took control of the situation. She had a plan because that is what she does. The two of them are the perfect team. 
The opening of this book is amazing, and from there it’s an action packed novel where you can’t help but fall in love with the characters that are being created. A lot of times I found myself so engrossed in the story that I couldn’t remember that it was a book I was reading and not my life. The supporting characters added that hint of masculinity without it being overpowering. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and deal with the everyday issues on top of fighting off zombies.

The romance was a great addition to the story it provided something light in a story that crushed my heart and made me cry. I really enjoyed this book! A great read.
