They took everything - killed his wife, enslaved his daughter, destroyed his life. Now he's a man with nothing left to lose...and that's what makes him so dangerous.
Ten years after the collapse, Huxley has built a good life again. He has a loving wife, a farm with fields of golden barley, and a daughter with a strange and wonderful gift. Then the slavers come. Working out in the fields during the attack, Huxley returns too late. His daughter has been taken, and his wife is bleeding out, her last whispered words about a man with a scorpion tattoo on his neck.
Where do the slavers go? Huxley has no idea. He knows only that they head east, and so will he, setting out on foot across the desert of the Wastelands. Eighteen months into his journey, he has no hope of ever seeing his daughter alive. Dying of thirst in the open desert, he doesn't even expect to see another day.
Then a man appears out of the desert and offers Huxley water from his canteen, an unheard of kindness in these savage times. Jay is an odd man, full of violence and guided by his hatred of the slavers, but he helps Huxley survive. And he gives Huxley a new purpose: Nothing can bring back the dead, but the two men can chase down the slavers and make them bleed.
Together Huxley and Jay carve a path of destruction across the remains of a once-great land. The slavers are brutal, but they have no idea what's coming for them. Huxley has found something to live for again: blood and vengeance.
In his most powerful work yet, New York Times best-selling author D. J. Molles delivers a carefully woven novel of violence and redemption, bringing to life a devastating portrait of a man pushed to the edge of his own humanity.

Brilliant. I do have one criticism.
OK, so after listening to The Remaining series, I consider myself a BIG fan of both DJ Molles and Christian Rummel; I expected A LOT from this book.
As expected, the writing was nothing short of brilliant. DJ Molles is a master of descriptive words and analogies, pushing my imagination to perform in ways I didn't know were possible.
Christian Rummel brings the story to life with many different voices, expertly matched to the individual character's personality. DJ and Christian are an amazing team.
Now, my criticism... DJ takes a long time to reveal the back story of the main character and the main character's overall goal is obscure for most of the book... for that reason, even though there is PLENTY of action, I felt like I didn't know what I was rooting for. Because DJ tells us so little about the main character initially, I had a hard time feeling a connection to him... until much later in the book. By the end of the book, I was absolutely connected to him.
I understand why DJ revealed the details he did at the pace he did, but there were unintended consequences. I still absolutely recommend the book and, now that I'm emotionally invested, I CANNOT WAIT for the next book in the series!

I tried very hard to like this, but I couldn't. I saw all the very positive reviews and went for it, only to find it to be one of the most tedious post-apocalyptic stories I have ever consumed. The narrator is incredibly talented, as shown when he does dramatic changes in character voices. But the vast majority of the time, he uses a husky and nearly monotone voice that I found very difficult to want to follow. Second, this is simply a gritty, grim Western that just happens to be set in a post-apocalyptic world. It could just as easily be set in a remote part of the western U.S. in the 1800s, and would make virtually zero difference. (And I don't like Westerns, generally. Sorry, Dad.) Third, the style is very "simple" and flat, which is a bad thing coming from a stunningly amazing trilogy I just finished. Finally, I found it extremely difficult to care about anyone in the story. Even when horrendous things were happening, or some back story on the main character was being provided, instead of being drawn in, I found myself thinking at times that if the author just killed off the main characters and ended it without explanation, I really wouldn't care much. Main character was supposed to be some kind of conflicted anti-hero-ish guy, but I found the character just boring most of the time. I think this is the first audio book in over two decades that I didn't finish.
