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.

I loved the excitement of this book! ups, downs, racing around, what will happen next? it was fabulous
Lee Harper is a character who is believable. He is very human.
The voice was spectacular. I found my heart racing in the area where he was excited.
One man, one mission, undefeatable odds
I'm an AVID listener to this genre. This series is one of the best. Great narration and overall great experience. Can't wait for #5......
I bought it with along with the first in the series, and after listening to the first in the series I wouldn't have listened to this but I already had it and was hoping it would get better ... it didn't. Here's what I wrote about the first book in the series.
"I wanted to like this story, had a lot of good story pieces but the writing was quite inane for a main character (Lee) who is supposed to be a highly trained battle hardened special forces type soldier. Instead the main character (Lee) moves from one self-inflicted crisis to another and only escapes due to stupid luck and contrived circumstances. Lee is clearly not a highly trained soldier and is a slow learner who consistently makes stupid decisions without any strategic thinking. This makes what could have been a good story line difficult to stick with."
well, those are still my summation of the book/series.
The first book was fantastic, 5x5x5, but the second, as other reviewers have pointed out, had some utterly idiotic choices. Why? I don't know. Stupidity. The author showed in book one that the author was capable of writing a good logical story (and a really good semi scientific believable "zombie" concept too) with no holes. But book 2? I continually hoped the lead would just die to pay for his sheer reckless, other-endangering stupidity.
I am really sick of authors that introduce plot idiocy just to pad out a story
Zombies Books in order: 1. We're Alive 2. Day By Day Armageddon 3. Roads Less Traveled Series 4. Alaskan Undead Apocalypse 5. World War Z 6. The Walking Dead 7. Rise Again 8. As the World Dies 9. Zombie Fallout
Lee has to prove himself to the survivors and goes to try to recover supplies from his bunker which results in many, many twists, turns and surprises, which never seem to end. There is a tremendous amount of action but not the senseless kind. The author brings us into Lee Hardens head and shows the inner workings of how this professional soldier becomes a beast of a war machine. Because the inner personality of Lee is described you can identify strongly with the character and it doesn't become a superficial action story. You cheer when he becomes angry, thoughtful when he ponders, its almost as if you feel the pain when he gets hurt. Again, he is not perfect and suffers the consequences, reminded me of John McClane in Die Hard, all beaten and busted up.
The author and narration are just really good, everything works. This is not your trashy zombie tale, but quality work.
I already have the next two books to go through... So I would have to say yes. I was dumb enough to pick up the soap twice already, so I might as well head to the showers for next two books.
Over all most of the characters area great except for the main. Sounds like he needs more fibre in his diet. Every time he speaks is sounds like he is making a Captain's Log.
No, although it already does. If it did not, I would still have two credits remaining in my account. Maybe the next book will be a little bit better.
I think the overall premise of the story is excellent.
How many times can a person choose the stupidest option available?
I understand people do dumb things, but doing them over and over especially in a extreme high risk situations is not.
Great as always
See my review of The Remaining: Fractured for the full review, but suffice it to say, if you've come this far and like the ride, just burn another couple of credits and get back to the same spot you are in now. Not much is resolved, not much is wrapped up, but it's like the ever-ready bunny, it just keeps going and going.
I will not ruin anything of the plot, however I think the government's decision to put Lee in charge of rebuilding the ruined country may have been a huge mistake. I fear for humanity's survival. Lee tends to make poor judgement calls whenever he can. He needs a secondary character to say: "Lee, we may need to rethink this decision because people are depending on us". That is just my two cents.
Good reading, honestly Rummel's narration is what keeps me listening.
I am enjoying this series for the most part as I am fond of post apocalyptic stories, but I often fast forward to get to the next chapter based on parts of the plot.
I consider that Christian Rummel is a God in the world of narrators
The whole flippin thing!!!
Oh m y God!!! He is the life blood of this most awesome story.
Yes, every single friggin time that Jerry speaks in any of the books I wanted to transport into the book just so I could kill him. I'm still amazed that Mr. Rummel can read the captain as so likeable and Jerry as such a froggin worm. Now that takes talent.
If you haven't listened to Christian Rummel read before then now is the time, because this story of survival and perseverance is amazing.
