The Remaining: Extinction is the final book in the series.  It is action packed with barely a moment to recover from one situation to another.  The horde of infected are moving quickly from the north into the south, Harden and his team have devised a plan to stop the infected in their tracks.  New alliances are built while others are devious and dangerous.

Captain Lee Hardin has just stepped into a mess of vipers; the Followers’ are stronger and more determined; LaRuesh is found; President Briggs has Marines helping him hold Harper and Julia hostage; the Horde is still coming.   Everything Harden has worked to protect and grow is dwindling.

Harden also has to struggle with himself – everything he believed in is upside down leaving him to question himself.  Determined to not leave any loose-ends we are given an insight into the viciousness that Harden is capable of committing; although his focus is consistent and steady on the “Hometown Mission” in setting up a safe haven.

Throughout the series, the situations the characters discover themselves entrenched in invoke moral questions such as does it matter what is right and wrong or what is correct or not? Who gets to live and why? What is the value of life when measuring one’s own likely demise in minutes?

Molles delivers an excellent last book of the series, one that leaves the listener gasping in shock and terror as they are hooked and dragged into each of the frays and struggle for survival.

This is an excellent book and series written by Molles.  They are not your normal zombies, but unique.  Their ability to learn and hunt and the different capabilities of the types of zombies are quite interesting.  This is a fast paced book, one that I enjoyed reading.  I highly recommend this book and series.

I thought Christian Rummel did an excellent job of narration and drawing the listeners in with his voice.

There were no problems with the production.
