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.

Books 1-4 are some of the best work in the genre!
I am giving this review for books 1 - 4 as I listened to them back-to-back. I would HIGHLY recommend all 4 books written so far - I am so glad that 4 had been written before I found them as this has enabled me to immerse myself in this world for the past few weeks without a break. Incredibly well written, the fear is palpable and you will find your heart beating and adrenaline pumping as you read. I love the characters I am meant to love, hate the characters I am meant to hate. The books seem realistic, you are already in a world where a major situation has happen and you are not expected to suspend your disbelief any further, they flow, everything asked is answered. Exciting, engrossing, scary, nail-biting, interesting - the smells, the decay, the evil characters, the military hardware...
Comparable to Robert McCammon's - Swan Song, V. M. Zito's - The Return Man, David Brin's - The Postman (ignore the film, read the book), Robert Kirkman & Jay Bonansinga's - Walking Dead books, think J. L. Bourne, Craig DiLouie, Z. A. Recht - all for the world's which they create, the believable characters and situations, the horror...
Well paced, calm, no silly voices, no hysterical action sequences, no unwarranted tempo changes - the voice and the character match.
Download 1-4, listen, love... then wait for number 5 - it's in the pipeline...
