In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a 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. Some day soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission: Subvenire Refectus - To Rescue And Rebuild.

Comments about The Remaining:
Great book from the start, different to the usual opening. Read at all hours of the day, particularly adrenaline rising at night - can't wait till the next one turns up!
Those who crave a military take on a zombie-like outbreak will want to check [this] out * LIBRARY JOURNAL * A solidly entertaining action adventure with just enough horror to keep things nice and tense * THE ELOQUENT PAGE * Sharply targeted sentences depict an acutely human action hero who wrestles his anxiety . . . 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 * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * The Walking Dead fans, this one would be right up your alley . . . Pure zombie fiction fun * BIBLIOSANCTUM * A thoroughly entertaining read (think Matthew Reilly meets 28 Days Later and you won't go too far wrong) that has me eagerly awaiting the sequel * GRAEME'S SFF * A well written, taut adventure novel with characters that definitely make a mark * SF CROWSNEST * These are my current favorite post-apocalyptic zombie novels! . . . I love how this series builds fantastic characters and poses them with and against one another in super believable situations. I can believe this future...The action is detailed and vivid * BOING BOING * Survival horror at almost its very best . . . Molles and Orbit are certainly onto a winner in a series that deserves to be seen by genre fans be it online or on paper * THE BOOK BAG *
