Cover Reveal: THE REMAINING by D.J. Molles

We’re thrilled to share the stunning cover art for the first four books in D.J. Molles’ Remaining series, which follows Captain Lee Harden and a group of survivors as they fight to rebuild a devastated America. The eBooks of all four will be available from Orbit starting January 2014, with print additions coming out in successive months starting in May.

In the meantime here is a synopsis of the first book in the series, THE REMAINING….

In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a Special Forces soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace.

The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed.

Soon the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his duty: SURVIVE, RESCUE, REBUILD.

This gritty tale of survival and perseverance will enthrall fans of World War Z and The Walking Dead.

    the refuge series is one of my all time favorites for intense adrenaline junkies like me your reading has to be intense,methodical, and well structured this book delivers intensity down to its core i have read countless reviews on this book a common complaint was that the second book was a bit slower to these people i say you are unappreciative uncultured slobs. it is slow through the remaining but that is to set the whole rest of the book it is the calm before the storm not only making it action and survival but mental with out the periodic breaks in between to set up the story its just tons of pointless violence. molles sets the story, and brings you in to what is happening you just cant help being immersed in the plot twists and brings you to fell the pain of each character by relating you to the characters basic instincts. but to cut this short intense,action,gore,loved characters, and more gore this is what the apocalypse would be like…. there is no supper solider captain harden shows that in his every though and action HE IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER OF ALL TIME!! because he is the most relativistic to actual people d.j molles you are my favorite author keep up what your doing your awesome.

    Great series. As a former Army Officer and a lover of this genre of books I loved this series. There is enough realism in the storyline to make it plausible (if you believe in the potential for a zombie outbreak to begin with!!). The pace is frenetic throughout most of the books with some obvious pauses in the breakneck action to allow for character development etc. Molles has done a great job with these books, literally ‘cant put them down’ stuff
