    "A smart handling of a zombie story."

    I like this series because it has handled the typical zombie story a little differently than usual. Molles has not borrowed the tired cliche of "undead" flesh eaters who mindlessly wander looking for blood. Rather, the "infected" are still somewhat alive and even human, although reduced to a baser animal state and thus far in the story have even begun to show a frightening amount of thought and reason to their movements.
    Even better than all of the zombie stuff -is the struggle of the survivors to band together and fight off the "Mad Max" like psychopaths who try to rule this new order of society. Molle has added a satisfying amount of intrigue and surprise attack. Although the good guys do end victorious, there are no easy victories to mar the believability of the action.
    I can't wait to start book three.

    Story
    "Solid addition to the series"

    The second book in the Remaining series improves upon an already strong first book, but only by a little. The plot is pretty simple. The first book was about our hero being forced into a surreal and immensely challenging mission. We saw the terrifying creatures called furies—people sick with a virus that makes them berserk—but the real enemies were the people who decided to take advantage of a fallen society. For those of us a bit sick with ho-hum zombie stories, it is nice to see this author not making them the sole source of conflict.

    The second book starts with our hero, Captain Lee Harden, having found a camp of survivors. A traitor opens a fence and while he is still recovering from the injuries from Book One, furies infest the camp and unleash chaos. Book Two: Aftermath, is the search to prove that Lee was not that traitor by getting enough supplies from his bunker to prove he is good and trustworthy. Along the way, he will meet the main tyrant in the area. The adventure of their battle of wits, the surprising losses of life in between, and the climax of their head to head battle made this a worthy second installment to the series. The emotional resonance from the characters we met and lost shocked me with how far the author was willing to go to prove that his story promises no happy endings. The Remaining: Aftermath may not be among the best books I’ve read, nor is it one of the best Post-Apocalyptic book I’ve read, but it is strong in all areas. For that, I can’t recommend it as a surprise home run, but it looks to be a triple after a double in a series of books with potential to feel like an extended rally in a come from behind win.

    The narrator, Christian Rummel, does a fantastic job building on the tense action with his vocal skills. His characters aren’t the most diverse, but they do their job in adding personality to help make the story feel more alive. I’m eager for the next book in the series, but I’m not hooked enough to make it the next book in my queue.

    "Good story; great narrator"

    The story was a nice evolution from book 1 with satisfying resolution for certain story lines and interesting questions for what happens next. The narrator was great! I have not heard his work beyond this series but he made this series experience immersive. I truly appreciate his choices with character voicing and overall voice acting.

    "Excellent,"

    An excellent series for the survival horror genre. Easy to get caught up with and wanting more. The detail in which the writer captures the different weapon systems and equipment makes me wanna go gear shopping haha.

    Story
    "Pretty good listen"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Would be nice if there was more story covered than just a one or two day period.


    Would you be willing to try another book from D. J. Molles? Why or why not?

    I'll probably listen to the rest. I'm already invested. I need to see how it turns out. But I have a feeling this will be a 50-book series before the conclusion of the story.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    He seems to capture the craziness of certain characters. He really sounds like a psychopath when speaking as these characters. He did a great job.


    Did The Remaining: Aftermath inspire you to do anything?

    Inspired to start prepping for zombies. :)


    Any additional comments?

    I would expect this battle-hardened special forces character to be able to handle himself a little better and not getting all banged up fighting a few zombies. He's always getting shot, breaking bones, tendons, ligaments, etc. Just go get you a sword and stop wasting ammo.

    "Love this apocalypse seriously series"

    Love the series so far. Definitely my kind of zombie'ish/infected post apocalyptic read. Molles does a great spin on it, and the characters/story keep you engaged and wanting more, and just that little bit of wonder on what's around the corner for these survivors.

    Any additional comments?

    Must listen to book 1 and then get his one. You will want to listen to it all of the way through. I dont want to give anything away with the plot but my adrenal gland was on overload and I wanted to jump into the book and get in the action. I will prob buy the rest of this series NOW.

    I did find some parts of the book a lil funny , SPOILER ALERT... Military Humvee's dont have keys, lol there are a couple of other things in the book that will let you know that the writer doesn't have military experience but he does a great job none the less.

    "Awesome!"

    Whew! I loved it even better than the last book. I could not stop listening and finished listening in 3 days. I had to pace myself so that I could purchased the next book as soon as I finished this one upon getting my new Audible credit.
