I really liked this whole series, it's well written and narrated and you get fully immersed in the world and the characters lives.
Kind of glad to have reached a conclusion but I would love to hear more
Either following on or with different characters in the same world.
Enjoyed this series. A bit sad when it was finished, as I had grown attached to various characters.
I enjoy audible books, and highly recommend this series.
Enjoyed the writing, characters and the narration.
If you want to know more, then look at the first book, you will be hooked.
Great finale. Only blip was when Lee put everything in jeopardy to save a couple of people whose importance didn't merit it. But overall it was heart in the mouth stuff and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's certainly not your run of the mill zombie book, in fact they don't appear much at all but are always the menace in the background of the fight for survival. Highly recommend
This book represents a well managed conclusion to the series whilst avoiding the pacing problems of the preceding book (which was more of a vehicle to set up the events of this book than a book in it's own right). Instead this book rockets along and rarely deviates from the headlong rush to the finale.
However, without going into specifics, I have one major issue with the book and that is that whilst the book concludes several of the long-running storylines many others are left more or less entirely unresolved. I assume this is so the author can return to the series in the future or write a spin-off novel but it is still somewhat irritating as this book is pitched as the "final novel". However,I will admit that the parts that are concluded are done so in a more or less satisfying way.
Further, the characters seemed to occasionally act against their previously established personalities at times but it is not too common and over-all (with one exception) it was not enough to break my immersion in the book.
Criticisms aside I enjoyed the novel and in general it represents a good finale to the series. I assume we will be seeing Captain Lee Harden again because, as we know, he hates to leave loose ends...
Christian Rummel does a good job of narrating the novel as always.
"An amazing ending to this great series."
The final book in “The Remaining” series delivers non-stop action and thrills. If you’re looking for zombie action which will keep you on the edge of your seat this book is right up your alley. “Extinction” is well written and well thought out. The book brings the story to a fitting end and while it doesn’t tie up every single loose thread it wraps up enough for you to let it go, while allowing the author to pick it up at some point in the future should he wish to do so. I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed the series and this book.
Mr. Rummel brings this series to life. His narration, voices and pacing are just what you would want in this type of book. He really adds to the enjoyment.
This final book in The Remaining Saga is excellent! Action packed, and brings the story to a good end. Though I wouldn't be surprised to see a sequel series in a few years where we see what happens after...
I recommend the whole series. It is well thought out and very well written. It grabbed my attention and I couldn't wait for the next book.
"What comes next?"
I'd love to see another addition to this story line. Fighting to reunite the two halves of America while taking down president Briggs tyrannical regime. All the while fighting off the more evolved hunters. Will there be more scientific advances on the infected? Will the continue to evolve? So many places for Captain Lee Hardin and his battle hardened warriors to take this story. We're not done yet!!!!
Good book but more od the same nothing new just on a larger scale and it feels unfinished.
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series!"
DJ Molles is such a master of the written word! The plot twists, the descriptions, the way he a pretty crazy concept believable enough for a non-sci-fi fan to (REALLY) enjoy... I just can't say enough good things!
Very few narrators would do this story justice, but Christian Rummel is a PERFECT match. I am VERY picky about narrators and I listen to a lot of books in this genre and Christian Rummel is, at least, in my top 3.
I won't say much more, since you are already wasting your time reading this instead of buying and listening to the series, but I have to comment on the ending, since this is the last book in the series... IF I thought that DJ Molles was done writing in this world of The Remaining, I would be upset; there are just too many questions left unanswered, too many loose ends. I HOPE this means Molles is going to return to it after a short break. =)
Buy this series now. You won't regret it.
Hate to see this series end. May be the best of the genre. Certainly worth the effort.
"solid story for the series"
easy to listen, writer has a good military understanding, realistic scenarios, thanks for this book and the series
"I loved this series."
I am Sad to have finished the last book today. Very well written series. I could really relate to to the characters.
"Sad to see the series with Lee end ."
I loved the series, this is probably my favorite zombie/ apocalypse themed series I've ever read . If you enjoyed day by day by JL Bourne I would highly recommend taking a listen to the remaining . The narration was amazing . Some narrators tend to be monotone and difficult to listen to. This was not the case at all in the remaining . Only gripe with the final book in the series is it felt rushed in the end . I really wanted them to expand on the pregnant zombie angle but it died out . Also Claire and her father not really having the reunion after all that happened felt wrong . I feel like there should definitely be more books after this one . I really wanted to see how Lee and the other eastern states handled Briggs . In the end I loved this series and feel sad that it's over . Fingers crossed that DJ Molles comes back to the series and continues it .
