Product Description


'Survival horror at almost it's 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

'A well written, taut adventure novel with characters that definitely make a mark', SF CROWSNEST

'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

'The Walking Dead fans, this one would be right up your alley . . . Pure zombie fiction fun', BIBLIOSANCTUM

'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

'Those who crave a military take on a zombie-like outbreak will want to check [this] out', LIBRARY JOURNAL

Book Description

The first volume in D.J. Molles's bestselling series, now in a special edition with the bonus novella The Remaining: Faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugh howie sent me.. 20 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading HH's blog, and this series came up as recommended, so dropped the whole cople of quid and took a punt...

Well, that's one nights sleep I'm not getting back! Started reading and had finished by about 1am... So purchased book two...and realised I should probably get some sleep as it was 5AM. Bugger.

Anyway, the man can write. And he can tell a good story. Now I've just got to wait for book 4.

Please hurry up Mr Molles. I want to give you some more money.

A cracking good read. You won't be disappointed. I read a whole load of this genre of fiction, an I enjoyed this *nearly* as much as Wool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes! 28 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Not keen on zombie novels and bought this from the blurb not realising it was one but I sure am glad I did. I suspect the author is special forces because of all the tradecraft described but he sure can write an exciting story so different from the norm. First class. Have to read the other two now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice zombie romp! 27 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Finding a place to start with this review is tough as while it's pretty decent book with a mythos that I hope will grow in course of the next few books it's by no means the perfect book as it does have some flaws. Flaws of the type that if you don't think too much about them don't affect the story but still bug you. In minor stuff and the book is a really good read with a very interesting idea indeed........ zombies!

Now who doesn't love a good zombie romp? If you're a fan of The Walking Dead then I think you'll probably love this book about a virus that affects the brain and renders you incapable of anything kind of rational thought apart from the basic instincts for survival, mainly hunger. They feel no pain so cannot be stopped (the good old head shot will do the trick though!)

The story is based around Army Captain Lee Harden who is part of a government initiative to prevent complete disaster after an apocalyptic event, such as a zombie takeover. He is highly trained and sequestered away in an top secret and expensive bunker below his home waiting for activation and with no-one for company apart from his dog Tango. After the virus hots it's Lee's job to gather the survivors together and survive..... easy? Not really and this is where the flaws start to appear.....

Lee is down in this bunker, he has plenty of food and water, he has electricity thanks to solar panels on his house, in fact he even has an internet connection! The bunker only has one way in or out through the house above (a bunker will just one way in or out (Seriously? When is a solitary escape route ever a good idea?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Series 29 Jan. 2015
By L. Alex
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have just finished re-reading the entire Remaining series in preparation for Book 5 – Allegiance coming out next month and realised I never posted a review and felt compelled to do so. This and the Arisen Series are two series that I have loved as well-written, thoughtful and entertaining pieces of work.

The entire Remaining Series is fabulous – there wasn’t single book that I felt was “filler” or which I struggled through. Each is as well written and gripping as the last – I had real trouble putting them down as I couldn’t wait to see what each new chapter brings! DJ Molles has well developed, relatable characters – with even well-loved prominent characters showing their human side, making mistakes and bad decisions.

This first book in the series lays the foundation for the series – explaining Captain Harden’s mission and the backdrop for the series. Molles accurately portrays Lee’s frustration in the bunker and the claustrophobia and then from the minute he is out the action is hard and fast. Molles strikes the perfect mix of enough detail of weapons and military paraphernalia and practices without going into extensive, needless detail or assuming too much prior reader knowledge of them.

The entire series tackles a host of post-apocalyptic issues, exploring the threats of bandits, survivor group politics, the threat of the infected and issues such as finding supplies. If you like post-apocalyptic literature or would like a different spin on traditional brain-munching brainless zombies theme I cannot recommend the entire Remaining series as a whole enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Remaining of the Day 3 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
When reading ‘The Remaining’ by D.J. Molles I had a warm feeling inside, not due to the psychological terror in the book, but because it seems that I am not the only person who is prepared for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. No more an illustrious group than the US Army itself is prepared. In each of the mainland States of America a trained soldier is moved underground whenever a potential disaster is on the horizon. Captain Lee Harden has found himself in his bunker several times, but has always climbed out again a few days later, until now.

‘The Remaining’ is survival horror at almost it’s very best. One of the secrets to getting the genre right is to make is believable and when this means dealing with zombies this is not always the easiest task, but Molles pulls it off with aplomb. Captain Harden is a very believable character in a believable situation. It is not beyond the realms of possibility that the US Government have a covert operation that deals with the aftermath of any civil collapse. The zombification is also believable, it being a disease that is treated as such.

As a rule, everyone has a book in them, but due to self-publishing online it now appears that everyone also gets it out there. Having read more than my fair share of online-only fiction the standard is not always the highest. There is a place for publishers; they read through the rough drafts so that we don’t have to. ‘The Remaining’ series started as an online experience, but Orbit saw enough in the books to want to release them in traditional paperback format. What makes ‘The Remaining’ standout that little bit more than the slew of undead fiction that is around is that Molles has a better writing style.

Molles has a great eye for detail that fleshes out a scene without rambling.
