This is the destiny of those who stand for others.
Their honor will be bought in blood and pain.
The Camp Ryder Hub is broken. Lee is nowhere to be found, and his allies are scattered across the state, each of them learning that their missions will not be as easy as they thought. Inside the walls of Camp Ryder, a silent war is brewing, between those few that still support Lee's vision of rebuilding, and the majority that support Jerry's desire for isolation. But this war will not remain silent for long. And in this savage world, everyone will have to make a choice.
To keep their morals. Or keep their lives.
This is the fourth novel in D.J. Molles's bestselling series:
Book 1: The RemainingBook 2: The Remaining: AftermathBook 3: The Remaining: RefugeesBook 4: The Remaining: Fractured
Novella 1: The Remaining: TrustNovella 2: The Remaining: Faith
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.

Oh Man I Need Book 5
I love, love, love these books. I can't wait for number 5 to come out later this year.
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!
Post apocalyptic battle for survival with more realistic storyline
I absolutely love this series. I don't read a lot because I always think there's something else I can be doing, but occasionally I find a book that traps me in it. In this case, the entire series sucked me in and I stayed up into the early morning hours reading this series -- cursing myself the next morning when I woke up bleary eyed and sluggish from lack of sleep.
The series starts out as a virus that destroys the parts of our brains that makes us civilized. That causes us to no longer feel pain, and no longer be able to control our rage. After the actual food runs out we start to starve and what else is left to eat.
I like it mostly because it's not about "zombies screaming for brains" it continues to be a story of man vs. man where even the sane men want what you have and will kill you to get it, so long as they don't get killed while trying to do it.
You will be hooked if you enjoy that type of story.
