D..J. Molles' stunning Remaining saga continues in this first novella in the series set in a world ravaged by a bacterium that has turned 90% of the population into ravenous animals.
While Captain Lee Harden struggles to fulfill his part in Project Hometown his trusted friend and ally Major Abe Darabie works to hold up his end of the mission. But caught between his responsibility to the mission and the ambitions of a new president Abe must decide where his duty lies and whom he can trust in a country turned upside down.

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.

I love these books but I feel I got ripped off here
I am huge fan of the series so I was excited to read from Abe's perspective especially how the last one ended. I got a touch of that but it seemed I should have gotten more for $2.99. Yes, that sounds cheap but for 60 pages of content I think the price is steep.
Ok that aside. Amazing side story and it helps with my "I wonder what is happening in the other parts of the US" questions I have. Keep up the great writing.
Don't read this until you have maybe at least read the 4th book or there will be a bit of a spoiler. Great short story to a great series. Looking forward to book 6 but not to the end of the series.
Disappointing... 50pages only?
