Nothing has gone according to plan.

Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.
The Remaining: Aftermath is the second book in the best-selling The Remaining 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.
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.
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.
I have listened to the first 2 books (totaling some 20 hours) in 1 week. This is in the top 5 fiction books I've ever read, and it is the best performance of the 25 audio books I've listened to thus far. Wish this guy would read every book!
Narrator Christian Rummel is one of the best ive heard so far, the way he gives tone, depth and emotion to the characters greatly improves the story experience.
like all of the Aftermath books so far, yes.
I have been around foul language throughout my life and there are no words in this book that I have not heard. I also understand that the story is set in a rough context.
That said, I finally gave up on this book due the amount of foul language. I would not do so over some foul words, but the use of them in this story is excessive. My personal opinion is that a good author can express himself and spin a good story without using so much bad language that you cannot play his book without your headphones on because of concern for who might overhear it.
One of my favorite series I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. I'm writing this review after listening to all 4 books and I think this one (Book 2) is actually my favorite.
Really, really awesome plot and I 100% recommend it.
Christian Rummel's narration is simply incredible, BTW.
