Publisher's Summary

Don't ever let it break you.  

The United Eastern States is crumbling. The fragile house of cards that Lee Harden and Angela Houston have built has begun to fall. Lee is up against a ticking clock, as he is recalled from Texas and given the last thing in the world that he wants: a promotion.  

Forced into a command role, Major Harden is thrust into a sharp learning curve that goes against every instinct he's developed over years of fighting. As Lee races to find his footing in a mire of shifting loyalties and opposing goals, Safe Zones are being overrun by massive hordes of primals exhibiting strange behaviors and uncanny levels of intelligence, and Greeley is moving toward an invasion of the UES. The envoys from Canada and the United Kingdom know it - but they're refusing to take sides and give Lee the intelligence he desperately needs.  

As the tides of war reach the doors of the UES, horrific secrets are revealed that will change the future of their fight for survival. Friends become enemies, and enemies become allies. But no matter what happens, no matter what - or who - he loses, Lee can't let it break him. He must remain defiant to the last.

Another great addition to this awesome series

I liked The Remaining series a little better. But The Lee Harden series is great for those that like zombie books but just don't want the book to be only about zombies. This is more of a story that also has zombies. This series is perfect for Christian Rummel, and he turns in another magnificent performance.

Lee Harden just keeps on going

Once again, don't get too attached to any of the characters in this saga--they're all at risk. But there are just enough successes to keep hope alive. The performance of this story is gritty and satisfying. I'll keep listening!

Coming Back Around

DJ Molles knocked it out with bringing the series back around to it's roots of Project Hometown. His character development is some of my favorite in fiction and he has fleshed out so many well-rounded and realistic characters, flaws and all. The Remaining showed his talent for gritting through the fiction with descriptive and entertaining writing, and Harden has taken you with Lee through the depression and anger of a soldier with bloodlust and back to his purpose. I have enjoyed how he has captured the individual greed and flaws of human nature, showing multiple sides to a conflict while still fully supporting the protagonist as a struggling good guy stereotype. Well written and bringing the series together. Bravo on another great work of fiction.

loving it..

great story continuation, insightful character evolutions... Rummel crushes it... somehow manages to convincingly voice female characters which all helps maintain the emersion...

It's all getting a bit depressing now

I've listened to the whole series and I've always really enjoyed it but to be honest this one feels like it's kind of broke my enjoyment. I've started to kinda wish the primates all the luck in the world- hopefully they won't evolve to be such back stabbing, unsocialised creatures unable to form any kind of cohesion or future for themselves. I guess it's getting a bit walking dead - everything falls apart and things keep getting grimmer and grimmer.

By the end of the book Lee has had another three major injuries and society fares even worse. I guess I just don't see much hope in their future and at that point for me it just stops being enjoyable. It's not a plucky underdog story anymore - it's just depressing.
