Texas housewife Jenni awakens to watch in horror her abusive husband Lloyd eating their three years old baby Benjamin; their other son twelve year old Mikey was already turned. As tiny fingers try to grab the door open to get at Jenni, a driver yells at her to get into her car. Katie the lawyer was on her way to work when she was almost bitten. Neither are aware that a zombie plague has assaulted the world. As Katie runs over the monsters, Jenni is glad she hooked up with a strong woman.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Rhiannon Frater's As the World Dies trilogy is an internet sensation. The first two books, The First Days and Fighting to Survive, have won the Dead Letter Award for Best Novel from Mail Order Zombie. 

The morning that the world ends, Katie is getting ready for court and housewife Jenni is taking care of her family. Less than two hours later, they are fleeing for their lives from a zombie horde. 

Thrown together by circumstance, Jenni and Katie become a powerful zombie-killing partnership, mowing down zombies as they rescue Jenni's stepson, Jason, from an infected campground.

They find sanctuary in a tiny, roughly fortified Texas town. There Jenni and Katie find they are both attracted to Travis, leader of the survivors; and the refugees must slaughter people they know, who have returned in zombie form.
