To Captain Lee Harden, the mission to rescue his countrymen and rebuild the nation seems like a distant memory.
Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors who may be his last hope. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift and forces him into action.
And in the chaos of a world overrun by infected, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to keep him from his sworn duty.

Anxiety and building desperation fuel this debut zombie thriller, the first in a series that already has a significant online fan base. Army Capt. Lee Harden is alone in an underground bunker, preparing to return to a world where the FURY virus has turned most of the population into homicidal cannibals. Sharply targeted sentences depict an acutely human action hero who wrestles his anxiety by packing and unpacking his gear, trying to find online porn in a post-Internet world, and playing with his dog. Amply trained and armed, Lee is nonetheless a nauseated shaking mess as he emerges with little understanding of what he's up against. With a handful of survivors, he embarks on a sweaty, frantic, bloody scramble across the surreally placid North Carolina countryside. Though this first installment is less a story than an establishment of scene and players, Molles's precise construction gives readers ample reason to return, as does the agonizing companion novella, which provides an unnerving view of what occurred while Lee was waiting to begin his mission.
Customer ReviewsSee All
these books are great reads truly great work by the author there also enovellas out there that are 50 pages apiece and they have a different set of characters so just a for warning
Wow! The sequel was just as good as the original and the last chapter just ensured I will be getting Refugees.
Beware of bait and switch
Good books, but the last two are only 50 pages!
Some brilliant marketing idiot decided that if you get the customer hooked then they will have to buy the last 2 books each with only 50 pages.
Well, I'm going to let the story end in the middle. I won't be ransomed!
