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.

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.
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!
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. If you've made it this far, then you need to keep going. The last two books served as an excellent tale of survival, but this book sets up the rest of the series. A greater plot, much more "big picture".
This story really adds fuel to the fire. Plot twists all around.
Everything. He's an excellent narrator.
Yes, but I like to binge my stories. Compared to the other books in the series, this one is a bit slow. It's a great story, but there are plenty of places that offer "Jumping off points" to go do other things.
If you get this book, be prepared to buy the rest of the series.
The way the story continues to develop is nothing short of amazing. Usually I tend to resent blatant "series writing". "Write a book dammit", I'll think. Not so with this series. The tension keeps building. New story threads and revelations changes things (a lot) and keeps me interested, to say he least. Just hoping that Molles can keep things together in the books ahead. (I've bought the entire series)
The character Jerry is one that you love to hate. So brilliantly narrated by Christian Rummel that I wanted to punch my phone... ;)
