When I read the first Remaining book, I almost stopped there. It was bleak and gritty and didn't seem like there was ever going to be any sunshine , ever... But something about the extreme bleakness, the way the zombie apocalypse wore down the protagonist, Lee, how the other humans interacted, that felt more real than most of the genre, and I've read a LOT of zombie books, i'm slightly embarrassed to say. This is no Mark Tufo reluctant hero who saves the ones he loves story, this is a story of loss, betrayal, survival, politics, and of course, zombies....

I am burnt out on zombie tales. It is not that I don't like them, but there are just so many everywhere. I started this series after a recommendation, and I thought it was a post apocalyptic story, which it is, but did not know the cause of the apocalypse was the dreaded zombies. So I rolled my eyes expecting the same story under different covers, but it surprised me.
While this story is not high literature it is fun. The characters are done well enough that you care for them, and the zombies are used to move the human interaction and plot along. The zombies are used sparingly. It also gives you a plausible feel of how government and military evolve after a situation like this.
As for this particular book? It was good. It felt so very short, but it was over 14 hours in length so I think that describes the pace of the story.
I am not a big fan of the cliffhanger serial. I want my story to be fully complete. There can still be a great deal to do in the author's universe without resorting to the old cliffhanger serial technique, but I guess if it keeps bringing the readers in and keeps the series going I don't mind that much.

Very good and gripping continuation of the zombie series. well worth reading. when is the next one????
Brilliant series. Totally hooked from the start. Much more than the run of the mill end of world books. Highly recommend.
This same review has been posted on the first 5 books of this series of 6 since all were listened to in a short span of time.
I'm not going to write a full review for this title/s as I honestly feel I won't be able to do it justice. To write a lacking review for this series that could potentially show it in a poor perspective is worse than not writing one at all.
The story is amazing, the characters and their development is amazing and the narration, Jesus Christ. Christian Rummel absolutely crushed it.
I listened to the first 5 books one after another in a very short span of time. I now unfortunately have a wait ahead of me for the final book (book 6) which is due out towards the second half of this year. I will be buying this day one. On top of that, I'll be buying the set in physical copy's as well as soon as the last book is released.
It's that good.
Do yourself a favor and get these books as soon as possible. You won't regret it.
