Eric Riordan thought he had seen the worst the post-outbreak world had to offer.
He was wrong.
As the Midwest Alliance puts plans in motion to touch off a civil war, Eric and a group of elite warriors are recruited to stop them. To prevent disaster, they will venture into the heart of enemy territory on an assassination mission. To survive, Eric will have to call on all his training, willpower, and strength - because this fight will determine not only his future, but the fate of an entire nation.
And if he fails, the enemy will show no mercy.

This is a book that is about, oh, 50% about nothing. It's tons of filler. I was a fan of the previous books, but this one really let me down. I'm not sure I'll buy the next installment based on how this book was written.
Once again, Eric and Gabe along with Great Hawk and a few other elite soldiers are asked to sacrifice their time and possibly their lives. However, the new mission will have far reaching consequences for both the Union and the Alliance. Eric will have to make a choice, leave a pregnant wife for a mission he might never return from or stay with many regrets. Gabe is who he is. He too is at the cross roads of his life but for him the choice is easy as it is for Great Hawk. If they can pull this off, the Union will be on the way to mending a very fractured country. If they fail.... Eric is not happy with many of the decisions that are being made with him being privy to almost none of why. But he will do what ever he must to ensure the safety of his wife and unborn child. ...Failure is not an option. Good addition to an already great story line.
Love this series. The "bromance" between Eric and Gabe and their little verbal jousts seems a little unnecessary and forced at times. My only negative comment.
Everything! The characters, the action, loved it all.
I do enjoy Gabe a lot more as a character than Eric. But both play off each other very well. I cant imaging one with out the other.
Guy William's has always been a great during this series. He portrays the characters and their feelings perfectly.
The whole book was a very enjoyable experience.
The book was way too short. The next one needs be at least double the size of this one.
Love a good book!
Loved the book and the whole series. Couldn't put this one down. A few good men doing what they know is right put the Alliance down! Lots of action and plenty of gore!
Keep the books coming. Can't wait to see how Gabriel reacts!
yes. As always, Jim Cook contiues to be the most taleted writer in an overcrowded genre.... I have to now move his series to the top of favorite list and bump poor k. Blackmore's mountain man to number 2. Sorry Gus! ...scratches his junk..... And who knows just how much of the audiobook success might actually be attributed to the excellent narration by Guy ...with his talent of somehow always making the female charaters sound ditzy but kinda sexy at the same time and that low raspy voice of Gabe, he should be doing tons of audiobooks....
I've really enjoyed this series. There are only a handful of series that I actually look forward to and follow the release dates. The Remaining series and Surviving The Dead are the top two stories in this genre, for me. Mr. Cook has created an enticing story which leaves me waiting for the next installment each time. I cannot wait for volume 7. Even my 70 year old father enoyed the heck out of volume 1 and is now enthralled with the series. Kudos Mr. Cook and keep up the great work.
