"The First Days"""Best Zombie Book of the Year: "Explorations"Dead Letter Award for Best Novel: "Mail Order Zombie""'This world is fragile.' This truth lies at the core of Frater's intensely compelling first novel. This outstanding first effort, the first book in a trilogy, will appeal greatly to zombie fans, but the undead are merely the catalyst for a far more disquieting tale of societal collapse."
--"Publishers Weekly," starred review""The First Days" is a lean, mean read. You'll blow through this faster than a herd of undead at an all-cheerleader buffet. Buy this book now so you can say you liked Frater before she became the Next Big Deal In Horror, because that's where she's headed." --"Dread Central""This is a world where zombies existed in media before they became 'real' and there are a ton of little easter eggs throughout for zombie fans. Romero's films are references, as is "The Zombie Survival Guide."" --"BuyZombie""""Katie and Jenni are first drawn in short, sharp sketches and fleshed out as the story progresses. By the end of the book I was laughing at their jokes and feeling what they felt, excited to see what happened next. "The First Days" plays on deep-seated fears and pushes the limits constantly." --"Cafe Libri""From literally the first page, Frater pulled me in and never let go. "The First Days" had me thrilled, excited, sad, and happy. If you love strong characters, exciting plot and of course zombies then I'm sure you will love this." --"Book Chick City""From the first page, the reader is plunged into a terrifying but riveting nightmare. Frater does not shy away from depicting the story in all its gory detail, never forgetting a healthy dose of black humor to keep things from sinking into bleak despair." --"So I Read this Book""Everything felt so real and haunting. Beautiful. I really, really enjoyed this book. It reminds me of "The Walking Dead" in terms of the pace and the story progression. This is good stuffshow more
