Nothing has gone according to plan.
To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable. 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.

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.
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.
If you have not read the first book in the series you should definitely do that. These books do not stand on their own. The author does very little to recap the first book so the reader knows what is going on. Read The Remaining first or you will not appreciate the story nearly as much.
That said, this book just takes up where the first one left off and continues the saga with an entirely new set of twists and turns. Some new characters are introduced and new side quests from the main mission are introduced as well. All good stuff.
I am actually reading the fourth book as I write this review and it just keeps getting better. The narrative changes from first person a bit more in this book and even more so as the story progresses – for reasons I can’t mention here.
All I can say is this is a great series of books, so start at the beginning and you will not be disappointed.
Audible is better than TV
The first book of this series was just adequate. Frankly, it could have been a prologue to this book. But the first book had a great narrator, as this one does because they are one and the same. There was some character building and some tears in the story as well.
Yet, it is Aftermath where Molles opens the spigots and let the story flow. There is a terrific set of characters and unrelenting tension as people try to become communities with sustainable protection. While the world has changed a sense of normality and stability grew.
You don't need the first book to enjoy the second, but if you read the first book you will be happier with it after you read the second book. At least I was happier with the first after reading the second.
Best. Series. Ever.
Just in book 1 ... and his performance continues to improve. His timing and inflection are spot on, especially for the fight scenes, adding to the overall tension, suspense and horror, engaging you, drawing you in.
The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday
This series (plot, characters) and Rummel's amazing narration continue to draw me in. Once again I found myself listening to this every spare moment I had ... and cursing when I was forced to shut it off for awhile. And I admit that I'm giddy at the thought that the next book is even longer ... Can't get enough. This from someone who generally does not do series. That should tell you everything.
Yes, if you like Zombies, or more the survivors in Zombie world, get this.
Well I did yell F*** more than once....does that count as exteme?
I'm glad this story continues....
The story was phenomenal! It was a believable fictional story and exceptionally written. It is very appealing to both men and women audiences. I normally do not get into this type of story, but I could not stop listening. I have already purchased all 4 books in the series!
I cannot compare this book to any other book. It is in a class by itself.
Captain Lee Harden was hands down my favorite character. Christian Rummel has a fantastic voice and he really delivered for all characters, but Lee was my favorite. I really fell in love with Lee's unbreakable yet humble character. I don't think anyone could have portrayed Captain Lee Harden better than Christian.
I really cannot narrow it down to any one moment in the book that moved me. The entire story is very moving. I was in awe of the strength and humility of Captain Harden. I had an uncle who was a special forces green barret, and I believe that May be a reason I was so drawn to this series.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
This is a continuation of a great story! I love this kind of thing anyway, but the author of these novels really did a great job depicting one possible way that a SHTF scenario might play out. Great characterization. Great heroes. I really loved this book. The narrator is amazing, too!
I am really enjoying this series. The author is very creative and the narrator does an excellent job. I'm at a loss for all the people who's reviews criticize the author's character development as being "idiotic". It's a fictional book for crying out loud. If you want realism find a different genre. Kudos to the author.
