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.

Post Apocalyptic fanatic!
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....
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!

Refugees (The Remaining) by D.J. Molles continues to be an excellent series.
Captain Lee Harden has fought hard and long but there is no end in sight. Working day and night to keep Camp Ryder and its occupants safe is a full-time job and his mission. Not only does he have to protect them from the zombies, but now he discovers there are different and even more deadly types of zombies out there just beyond the gates. Throw in a struggle for power within the camp and a group of religious fanatics that have idealist plans to being a new religious world, and the huge red target painted on his back – well, he just never gets a break.
His friends and colleagues are also faced with difficult decisions, responsibilities and the need to protect Harden and the camp.
The characters are well developed as is the plot. The fresh new take on the zombies is unique and exciting; with lots of battles and skirmishes of varying kinds with guns and strategies.
Molles’ definitely knows how to turn a plot twist that leaves one breathless and sputtering in shock.
The narrator, Christian Rummel does a superb job at the voices and inciting excitement when needed. He speaks clearly and his enunciation is perfect.
The audio production of this book was fine, there were zero issues.

Tell us about yourself!
Confess, I am hooked on the series and love the characters and storyline.
The author has found his stride, good balance of character development, action, drama and plot development. Well read and well written
Jerry - you bastard!
Very strong reading, love the voice(s)
The foreshadowing is a bit heavy handed....where are the female infected...once was probably enough, twice (we'll give you the benefit of the doubt), beyond that = do you think the reader isn't paying attention? :) Nitpicking though
I applaud all authors in the zombie apocalypse genre - even the "bad" ones. Keep doing what you do!
Molles is one of the best writers in the apocalypse/zombie genre. Read this series.
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.
Yes, in the future I would because it was so realistic, stark and in vivid color
I would compare it to The Mountain Man series by Blackmore because both Zombie series are so full of action and character growth and great plots. Blackmore's books had more then just Zombies as monsters and Molles books have meaner badder Zombies, both series the best Zombie action ever written.
Great performance, you forgot it was one man playing all the roles.
Zombies on steroids
Really enjoyed listening to this series couldn't stop listening
