My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lee Harden a Captain in the US Army has an unusual job, he waits in isolation for something to happen. Part of the Hometown project Lee must stay in his protected bunker when catastrophe threatens the US. A plague ravages across America and Lee along with Tango his dog is living underground for thirty days before he can emerge to carry out his mission. The plague is turning the population into zombie like creatures intent on killing any normal humans they spot. As Lee finds out fulfilling his mission criteria is not going to be easy.
The Remaining is the first part of a series by DJ Molles and if the subsequent books are as scary, thrilling and compelling to read he has a winner. The author's description of the events is very believable and therefore scary. As a fan of The Walking Dead TV show I can draw some similarities but thats all it is, the storyline is clear it is all about survival in a new world and trying to establish a new society. I look forward to reading the follow on books in the series and recommend it to any The Walking Dead fans.
