He has fought the fight, and run the race. But the enemies never stop coming, and the race has no finish line. It has been three months since Captain Lee Harden found the survivors at Camp Ryder. With winter looming, Lee is on the verge of establishing Camp Ryder as a hub of safety and stability in the region. But not everyone agrees with Lee’s mission... or his methods. Growing tensions between camp leadership are coming to a head, and as Lee struggles amid the dissention and controversy, new revelations about the infected threaten to destroy everything he has worked for. The Remaining: Refugees is the third book in the best-selling The Remaining series.

28 DAYS + WALKING DEAD + ZOMBIE FALLOUT + DAY BY DAY ARMAGEDDON = THE REMAINING!
AFTER SPENDING THE YEAR WADING THROUGH HORRIBLE ZOMBIE/APOCALYPTIC BOOKS I FINALLY FEEL THE WASTED CREDITS REDEEMED BY D.J. MOLLES THE REAMING SERIES. THOUGHT I WAS NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS SERIES AS MOST BOOKS INVOLVE EX MILITARY TRYING TO SURVIVE DURING A ZOMBIE OUTBREAK BUT WOW WAS I GLAD I TOOK A CHANCE. I HAVE FINISHED ALL FOUR BOOKS IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS. I COULD NOT PUT THE BOOK DOWN.
LEE (MAIN CHARACTER) IS MY HERO. I WOULD LIKE THIS BOOK TO BE MADE INTO A MOVIE OR TELEVISION SERIES.
ZOMBIES IN THE STORY ARE HORRIFYING. SCENARIOS INVOLVING HUMANS ARE HORRIFYING. THIS IS A HORROR BOOK!
NARRATOR WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!
Avid Zombie fan who's starting to listen to more and more Fantasy and Sci-Fi stories. So, my description is apt to change. Dog lover who's known to have cats. LOL C# coder, part-time prepper, B movie fan, AMC watcher, recovering but successful day trader, perpetual student, overjoyed uncle, former adrenaline junkie with a flare for cooking, and lots more. LOL
sorry, i've got 6 words. as lee says, "you can't choose who you save!"
easily, the end. it's SHOCKING! i had to pick my brain up off the floor! puh-lease nobody reveal what happens! i was kind of pissed at the reviewer who revealed lee had to put down tango! if you reveal what happens, you'll forever be on my s#!t list!
refuges picks up 3 months after book 2. lee has been able to establish the camp ryder hub- a small collection of semi-safe zones. camp ryder is becoming too crowded with refuges, and tempers are flaring b/c lee's supplies only go so far. there is a dichotomy between the best way to survive- hunker down in isolation or expand and welcome all survivors. honestly, it would be a hard choice, and dj molles does a good job building the tension b/ween the factions. it's kind of a slow boil, but when things finally come to a head, it's an explosive climax!
i'm not spoiling anything by saying jerry isn't your typical villain, but i liked the direction dj molles went with it. it's been building, and jerry's slick ways of doing things add to the complications lee faces.with the influx of new refuges,
there are new friends and new enemies. dj molles does a good job of differentiating all of the characters so you don't get lost in who's who. the characters have different motivations, and there's a lot of character development.
dj molles keeps the tension building with internal and external threats. the infected are changing and in an interesting way that i didn't expect, which is refreshing!
at the end of book 2, we're introduced to jacob, who's forced to kill the coordinator from virginia. i like how dj molles weaves him into the plot, and what he brings to the table. there are a few surprises in this series, and i like how dj molles uses them. they don't feel fake or contrived. rather, the surprises add to the plot and make the story even more interesting. and yes, there are a couple of nice surprises in this book!
i thought this book was a little slower than the first two, but i liked it just the same as the intrigue builds to the explosive climax that'll have you downloading book 4 no matter what time it is!

The Remaining: Refugees continues the story of Captain Harden and his group form Camp Ryder. This volume of the series deepens the mystery of what’s going on as well as adding in a number of fronts the remaining have to fight on and really expands the plot. Moving from one flight to the next keeps the reader engaged and with none of the main characters being safe you never know who may buy it next. My only complaint is the leaving of a large cliff-hanger making the reader to commit to the next book in the story “Fractured” if he/she wants any conclusion in this story.
The narration really brings all the characters to life!
Tell us about yourself!
Confess, I am hooked on the series and love the characters and storyline.
Gripping, profound, reflexive.
The moments of introspection.
The Remaining: Refugees
Such a great series. I believe this book is so good because of the constant introspection, the reflecting, and the appropriate language used for the appropriate situation. The action is good, sturdy, gripping--but too much of it would be useless without the outstanding use of introspection from the characters. This makes the book memorable, making you wonder turn after turn of what you would do if shit hits the fan and the world collapses.
In this sequel, Captain Lee Harden is faced with the cold truth, served cold and putrid. The infected are adapting, colonizing a world lost to humans. The infected are gaining survival tactics much faster than human survivors are, and already Packs and Hunters are diversifying as a new species.
Humans seem to be more of a problem onto themselves than to the infected. Infected regard humans as a meal, yet humans cannot restrain themselves from fighting over turf, over who commands and who possess, who gives orders and who completes them, helping the infected wipe humans out for good.
The worst is brought out in humanity as chaos beautifully spreads with claws that drape survivors with fear and loathing. With inner conflicts, Camp Rider has slim chances of making it if between group leaders there is constant division of force.
For Lee things get ugly. Having been kept out of the loop, he is in for a surprise with his military comrades destined to deploy Project Hometown. With strange attacks menacing to kill him, Lee will unravel mayhem festering within the ranks of his comrades. The infected are yet another challenge as a surprise is set in motion: Women run scarce and are nowhere to be found. Where are the infected women? This poses a heart-pounding turn of events for human survivors. The infected will never die out. At this pace, they will outlive humans. Can't wait to read the next book!
Continues to keep me buying the series. This one slowed down but with a purpose, just keep listening and then your brain will literally explode. I'm a mailman and it did. I had to pick up a lot of mail afterwards.
I did find some small things that always bug me about zombie books though. It's a zombie apocalypse not a nuclear holocaust, so why are they living in old wooden shacks with only tarps for roofs? If they're scavenging, hit a motor home dealership for Pete's sake. I mean really. It's like in the walking dead when they were driving around in the oldest RV on the planet. Come on. Sewing clothes? It's been what, 3-4 months and they're sewing? You can't find a Kohls, a walmart, a...any of a about a billion stores that sell clothes? And why were they using and reusing plastic silverware until they fell apart? Again, anyone scavenging could easily find enough silverware in homes for 60 people.
And then my old least favorite cliche...the nutter religious folks. See my review for "14." I was really disappointed knowing they were the ones "killing for god." Bah. Still, can't put series down though. The narrator is perfect.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
Great follow up to the 2nd book. What I liked is that you can't know if things are getting better or worse for the survivors.. Its like they don't know what they want and some are never happy. Lee faces too many challenges from every side and finds new challenges he had never expected.
The ending of this book though was my favourite, I knew what was coming, but still I was shocked and really enjoyed it.... Will start the fourth book soon.
I had my doubts regarding this series, but every book is getting better and better.
I'm in my early to mid-thirties and I live in the mid-west. I have two wonderful children and the perfect wife. My profile pic is of my APBT, named Jasper. I like epic sic-fi type books. Some of my favorites are The Story of Song and Ice series, The Way of Kings, Theft of Sword series, and
you're at it. Book three is very good. The plot REALLY thickens. Not so much that you can't keep up, but enough to have you're head kinda swimming (in a good way). Right now, I'm so mad at some of the "bad guys" that I catch myself shouting profanities at the book. Luckily my wife also listens to audiobooks, so she can relate. Buy this book and enjoy....
I have been listening to books on tape for over 20 years. Starting with audio tapes, then CD's and now downloads.
I do love the Christian Rummel's reading of this book. he does a very good job. But it is definitely D.J. Molles material that makes this series pop. I listened to the first book and before done downloaded the second, third and fourth. I have not listened to another book since I have started this series.
When the antagonist turns against the main group and gets enough others to do it too. It was so very anxiety producing.
I still love the hero Lee Harding. He is such a believable hero with self doubts and personal foibles. What Molles does it make him a soldier first. As he says, “I am not a super hero. But a soldier and I am good at what I do."
I did like when he finds another dog, but this is not an emotional book. The anxiety of working with the different groups led by inferior people is probably the most emotions of the book. the zombies are the least of the problems, it is the other survivors
I would start at the very first book and go through them one by one. They are all great but it is fun to build upon the foundations of the others.
"Long long story!"
I have never read the print version.
Fed up of books that entice you into buying yet another book so you can find out what happened!
"If you like the genre you won't be disappointed"
Very clever story, great plot, plausible characters. Recommend the series and I look forward to the final instalment in 2015.
