Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Even better than the first"

    This book wraps you up and drops into it. Excellent sequel to the first. The story is great the narration by Christian Rummel is superb! Highly recommended.

    Much more than just a tale about zombies.

    "Loved it"

    Beautiful narration, at times I wondered how the narrator kept up with so many different voices at once so very smoothly. Can't wait to see what book three brings, seems these survivors can't catch a break.

    Story
    "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.

    "Another great Captain Lee story"
    What does Christian Rummel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the 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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    like all of the Aftermath books so far, yes.

    "Captain Lee Harden FTW!"

    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.

    Story
    "More of the First and Getting Better"

    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.

    Story
    "The 2nd Book Should Have Been the First"

    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.
