Publisher's Summary

In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission: Subvenire refectus. To rescue and rebuild.

The Remaining is the first book in the best-selling series, which tells a gritty tale of survival, perseverance and fighting to get back what has been lost.

    "Loving it!"

    Story line, production and narration hits the gut like any apocalyptic story or movie. If you are in to the whole Zombie/ Plague apocalypse genre this is a must read/ listen.

    "Book didn't finish the story"

    Book feels very amateurish in its writing. I found it very difficult to finish and the worst part is that the author didn't even finish the story, you have to pay to get the rest! There is a beginning, middle and no ending. He introduces characters and leaves you hanging with no resolution.

    Very disappointed in this book.

    "EXCELLENT BOOK"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely i would and have, it's a great book and now that i'm further on in the series it just keeps getting better. It has me on the edge of my seat, it's so well written that i feel like i'm right there with the characters and start freaking out for them when they're in danger etc it's great.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    i think the performance is fantastic, good voicing to the characters and the emotion of each pulls you into the story and makes you connect with them it's really really great.


    Any additional comments?

    give it a listen you won't regret it. I don't even like "zombie" type movies or tv shows but this this book i tried based on other reviews and it knocked by socks off. I finished this one 2 weeks ago and am already on book 4 because i couldn't stop listening!

    "I enjoyed this book"

    This book was off with a bang. It grew a bit predictable later but that brought with it a sense of familiarity. It took my mind off of life and that is enough for me to think of this fondly.

    The narrator did a pretty good job. He did not annoy me and these days that is a major plus

    I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.

    "4+Stars.Thumbs up so far (books 1-4). Binge read."

    I consumed the first 4 in the series pretty quickly and have set the series aside for a while. I'll be back for more. Narration and story are very good. I recommend the series.

    "So so"

    Too much like a particular show on TV and not as good a story. The performance was done well but the main character Lee is not that likable.

    Although enjoyable, unfortunately just a re-hashing of all the other ZA themes ... and what's with the over concentration of searching for water at every opportunity? They're not in the desert and I'm sure there are still streams to be found. Made me crazy.

    "Not a Solid Soldier"
    What would have made The Remaining better?

    The main character's choices lacked any semblance of skill that would be indicated by the position he was assigned to. This results in a series of plot points that continued to reveal his ineptness and only the writer through still more unbelievable plot points can save him.
