I was a little disappointed in this novella. The first was pretty good and I can easily see how it plays into the story. This novella is about Clyde, the Followers captain. Maybe he has a big part to play in the next book. Otherwise I'm not sure why there was a novella written about his experience.

The Remaining: A Faith is a novella that explains the origin and the reason for Clyde Bealey in the remaining books of the series. In the beginning before the mysterious disease spread across the U.S. and most likely the world, Clyde was a white-collar worker and lived a full white-collar world – a soft life according to his in-laws. His wife came from the more grounded life of blue-collar workers and hunters. Clyde knew he would never measure up to his wife’s family.
Throw in a mad dash to a FEMA camp and Clyde packs his most valued items – pictures, licenses, birth-certificates, CD’s, money, etc. and no food or clothes. His wife is about to give birth anytime and Clyde struggles with the realization that his in-laws would not only laugh at him but that they would be better prepared for this emergency.
D.J. Molles is not gentle with his characters and shows how brutal they and life can be to them. Clyde must decide where to go, what to do and who he really is now that the world is gone. Clyde must find his way among the Followers now.
Short but action packed. I find that I actually enjoy these novellas that are strategically placed within the series as they offer an insight that one might miss if they were not separated. Molles flushes out what most of us would do during such an emergency and shatters our thoughts, almost teaching what a survivor should do in the case of any emergency. What we should focus on.
The narrator, Christian Rummel continues to be excellent. The way he reads slightly faster as the action comes to head makes my already pumping heart beat slightly faster anticipating the outcome.
The production had no issues.
Audiobook was provided for review the narrator.
