Book Two of The Remaining
Nothing has gone according to plan.
To Captain Lee Harden, Project
Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems
Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of
survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep
rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world
outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get
what he has.
By the end of book one, Captain Lee Harden, one of 48 coordinators, has rescued a mother (Angela) and her daughter (Abby) and a young lad (Sam). They end up at Camp Ryder, a refugee camp located in a Ryder Truck compound 3 miles south west of Angier in North Carolina.
He offers the leader (Bus) of the compound help, but shortly after their arrival, a gang of criminals/miscreants cuts the wire into the compound and lets some infested in. This results in the death of a young girl, and Harden is soon blamed for being in league with 'Milo', the leader of the gang. His task then starts, not only to get the compound supplies, but also to get their trust.
Heading out to one of his supply caches, Harden finds a preacher and his flock camping outside of the bunker, he gives them aid and the directions to reach Camp Ryder. On the way back to camp, Harden and a few of the Ryder refugees detour to Smithfield in search of one of the refugee's sister. 'Milo' has his own plans for Harden, and things get interesting....
At 296 pages, this book took me about 6 hours to finish. Once again the story is well written and keeps you enthralled for the whole journey. I can't wait to see what is in store for Harden and the Camp Ryder refugees in book three.
