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.

Another winner by Molles and Rummel.

it's a no-brainer buy for Remaining fans and an oasis for people thirsty for more of the universe. Great direction and change of pace. Disappointed in the length, but that's a happy problem.

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.

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.

Love these books.

I have listened to thousands of books from Audible. I have to say I was hooked on the this series of books from the beginning. D.J. Molles' descriptive style and pace are exactly what I'm looking for. Action, suspense, and great characters. This is the first review I have written for Audible. That might tell you something right there. Go back to the beginning and read (listen to) The Remaining. You will not be disappointed.

Dark, gritty, hardcore suspense.

Molles did not disappoint with the newest addition to the series. it was all the violent fast paced action that I expected, along with the best story line so far. i was crushed when the book ended. Cant wait for the next one.

Excellent start to the new Series

Enjoyed every minute of this. Same world, many of the same characters w/ new and interest threats looming.

I look forward to what's next and hope I don't have to wait too long for it.

A MUST for any fan of "The Remaining" series

As always, Molles delivers an action packed, fantastic story. The narration is pretty good too. Not quite as good as you get with the Harry Potter series, but the voice fits and it isn't distracting. If you have read/heard and enjoyed "The Remaining" series, you would be doing a disservice to yourself if you didn't pick up this book.
