Publisher's Summary

Harden is the highly-anticipated return to the NYT best-selling series, The Remaining.

It’s been three years since Lee Harden emerged from his bunker into a world gone mad. Governments have fallen. And new ones have taken their place. In the United Eastern States, Lee and his team of battle-hardened operatives walk a tightrope of survival, keeping their fledgling society safe from the creatures beyond their gates - and from the enemies within.  

Then, an ambush in hostile territory reveals a traitor in their midst - and leaves Lee barely clinging to life. Wounded and on the run, Lee and his team race to uncover the leak before it’s too late. Through a background of destruction, betrayal, and newly-evolved apex predators, they must stay one step ahead of a ruthless organization spreading out of the south - an organization that has allied with someone who wants Lee dead, and the United Eastern States demolished. But how do you stay ahead of an enemy that knows every move you make?  

Reintroducing one of the most beloved heroes in post-apocalyptic fiction, Harden immerses you in a reality of desperate gambits, where wrong moves could cost the lives of thousands, but saving them could cost your humanity. The only rule is NEVER STOP FIGHTING.

Start with the other books.

I randomly picked this out just browsing and found out it's like the sixth book. I've gone back to the start. Really great story. The moral musing gets a fraction cringy in places, but past that into the action is fairly brutal.

Truly Exceptional

I'm a disabled vet who reads/listens to several novels per week. I'm always looking for books that feature the honor, integrity, and perseverance side of combat, without the masochistic and vulgar aspects of loss that only arm chair warriors include in their writing for shock effect. Don't get me wrong... there's plenty loss here.. but it's reasonable and balanced with sacrifice and proper cause and effect. It's more than respectful, it's honorable. D.J. Molles is my favorite author of this genre. For any genre, he should be considered an author of amazing skill and finesse. This book and the root series plant you squarely in the shoes of Captain Lee Harden. Truly exceptional story, characterization, and attention to detail. I've never felt so immersed and involved in any art, literature, or media as I have been with Molles' books. I'm re-reading The Remaining series for the 5th time, then I'll listen to Harden again. I hope I don't have to wait too long for Lee Harden Book 2. Bravo Foxtrot Zulu, Molles! I don't have the words to properly thank you.

Wow, great as always!

I am so happy to have Lee Harden back. The series starts off running and the suspense builds as more and more shady characters come to light and Lee has to protect his new country, find and supply oil/gas and figure out if their is someone betraying all their hard work. Ends leaving you wanting more, cannot wait for next book!!

Hard hitting from the start

Great addition to the Remaining/Harden world. It takes of like a rocket and fires on all cylinders until the last words. He flows so easily between high octane action, deep inflections and emotional turmoil, then some how I find myself laughing in between. As always Mr. Rummels perfomance is point and lends alot to the story as well.

Answers to a lot of questions

This has been a great follow up to all the series. Keeps you attached to the story line right from the beginning.

An excellent return to the world of The Remaining

If you're reading this review, you've probably read the Remaining series (if not, do so, it's awesome!) I've read some of Molles other books since finishing The Remaining and while they were decent enough they didn't engage me like The Remaining series did. So if like me you were wondering has he lost his touch a little or something, worry not, this is as good as the books in the original series. Lee Harden is just such a cool character. Christian Rummel does an excellent job as always. Looking forward to the rest of this series.

Spectacular continuation of an awesome series

Probably one of the best post apocalyptic stories around. Narrated by the excellent Christian Rummel
