I have a chance to buy a couple of Rhiannon Frater books.  I would like to know if she was a good writer and if her books would be worth buying.  I have not heard of her before!

I just read as the world dies- the first in her zombie series.  It was very good.  Fast read, interesting characters.  her main characters are females instead of males.  Gives a little different perspective.  Definitly worth the read!

Pretty When She Dies by her is really good too. The zombie trilogy by her is AMAZING though. One of the best series I've read.

I'm currently reading the first in her zombie trilogy and it's really very good. I love that it's a zombie story that isn't trying to be something other than a zombie story. It feels like Thelma and Louise crossed with Dawn of the Dead. It's smart, intense and the characters are very likeable.

It could use a good edit, but it's pretty amazing work for being self pubbed. I've read that she's sold the series to Tor and is currently in revisions and that she signed with an option -- meaning they want movie/tv rights. Pretty amazing for a self published author; a testament to how the publishing world is changing.
