Publisher's Summary

The United Eastern States has fallen. Lee Harden and a band of survivors have escaped President Briggs' invasion force. Their only options are to attack Briggs while his forces are delayed on the East Coast...or admit that they've been beaten and go into hiding. For Lee Harden, the decision seems obvious. But as disparate forces, factions, and loyalties begin to converge under the pressure cooker of all-out civil war, Lee is forced to confront not only insurmountable odds, but also the darkest parts of himself that he has left buried in the years since this all began.

filler book

nothing happened in this book they have dragged out a series that should have been a 3 book series into 6 with nothing but artificial filler for content. it started off strong but has fizzled out. best part of the book was the narrator

I'm out

I've given up on this series. Way too much space is taken up by Lee and Sam's constant inner monologues of self-doubt and self-loathing. I can't believe I made it this far. The rest of the story is good and some introspection is great but it's complete overkill. Adios Lee, I guess you aren't good enough after all.

Don’t leave me hanging!!

Once again, just, outstanding. There are not many series that I’d be willing to stop everything and listen to but this one is it! D.J. Molles has captured my heart and soul and given it to Lee Harden. The emotions I feel for this character are unlike any other series I’ve ever read. I carry the weight of the Lee with me every where and have asked myself more than once since “The Remaining” first started what Lee would do if he were in my shoes. The rise and falls of Lee and everyone who surrounds him lives in my heart. I feel for him like I feel for my most loved friends and family. I can’t wait to see how this journey plays out as he is on the doorstep of another life altering event.


Let’s get book 6 out tomorrow please!!

Not as good as previous

Review: This was not nearly as good as the other in the series I didn't make it more than a couple of hours. The book just goes nowhere repeating dull stuff from other books. It’s like the writer was just putting in filler.

What a AMAZING setup for the next book!

I have loved this series from day one. I’m so desperate to know what happens next. I’ve really grown to love this narrator and he really captures Lee perfectly.

Filler Bunny in an otherwise great series

First off, I love the story arc over the two series. What I don't love in this latest book, is the tortured introspective navel gazing padded out for some the main characters. The entire book feels like it's just filler for what will probably be the finale to the series in the next one. Beyond a few key bits of info, I feel I could have missed this one entirely and not missed a thing. Narrator's performance as always, top notch!

From father to son

A deeper insight into Sam's life, Lee's pains and the bigger picture of this escalation. Characters grow on you, and it is felt all through the book, how fatigued everyone is.

However...these are not the days to rest. Much is at stake. Almost more than before.

Terrible place to stop the book

Positives = love the narrator!

Negatives = totally inappropriate way to stop a book. Not a cliffhanger, feels like a marketing decision, just chop out the actual story arc ending for the book to force rather than encourage people to buy the next installment. It's so frustrating. I'm pretty ticked off. Might fanfiction myself the ending just so I don't feel so cheated!

Expected more

I enjoy the harden books but this one fell short Literally stoped when it should have been starting seems these days chopping books up to make sales encourages piracy not sure I’ll continue with the books of what we buy is not worth the money I blame the editors not the author

Anyway food for thought

Can't wait for it to continue.

Listened to the Remaining series and the Lee Harden series over the last 2 weeks..... Just finished Unbowed and..... What a cliff hanger.. 😳 Can't wait on the next Audio Book in the series.... Oh and Christian Rummel...... What a Narrator, First class job..... Definitely say he's up there with R.C Bray.... 👌👌👍

Another great addition to the series

Have been a fan of the Lee Harden/Remaining series from the start and particularly the audiobook versions. This is another great addition to the series and another outstanding performance from Christian Rummel. Eagerly awaiting the next instalment. If you haven't checked out the series I'd highly recommend going back and starting at the beginning of The Remaining series.

Unfinished........

Have loved this series from the start but this book let's it down. Usual great narration, builds up nicely then just stops. A cliff hanger is good but this just feels unfinished.
Very dissapointing.....

Unbowed

More, more more. I beg you Mr. Molles don't make us wait too long for book 6.
This series, for me has been an unputdownable read and my mouth is watering for the next book. If you like this genre, do yourself a favour and read DJ Molles' books. Strong characters, great story lines with fast paced action and all around an entertaining read. I haven't met a DJ Molles book I haven't loved.
Christian Rummell? Yummy, what a voice!! What a great narrator.
