The Remaining Book Review + Giveaway

My love of zombies seeps out of the screen and onto the pages of my books too. I was lucky enough to be gifted a few copies of the first book in a  Zombie Series called 'The Remaining'. I have 2 press copies to give away to you my lovely followers.
This is the first in D.J Molles best selling series and another book in the series has just been released bringing the series up to a total of 4. This series already has a huge fan following and with the rising love for zombies can only grow in popularity. I have to admit before Orbit Books approached me I hadn't heard of the series but when I heard Zombies I was in.

The book is in first person following a soldier in his mission to help overcome the disease that has taken over the world. After being deployed into a self contained underground bunker for a month we join Lee Harden in his first steps into this new world. Personally I really enjoy the shared emotions of a first person perspective especially in these kind of situations. You can really feel like you are experiencing everything with the character which helps you connect with them while you learn more about them. Even if they do have a hard army exterior.

While Harden has been in the bunker 90% of the population have been infected with the virus and have turned into hyper-aggressive predators. When I first read this I rolled my eyes and though "Uh how 28 days later" but pushed on and it does have a very different spin to it. Fast zombies may not be your bag but they really do make for better reading tension. I really struggled to put the book down and am now hungry for the next in the series. Can Lee Harden keep to his mission to "Survive. Rescue.Rebuild"? Well you have a chance to find out. All you have to do is enter below. This giveaway will run for 2 weeks and there will be 2 winners so get entering! Alternatively you can buy the books over at Orbit books.

    1. it really is pretty cool. I just finished "The undead situation" too which was a bit strange character wise but still a lighthearted read. I am doing a post about an amazing zombie podcast soon so keep your eyes peeled x

  6. This sounds like something my dad would love! To be honest I've kept myself pretty far from the whole infection of zombie things in the last few years, but my dad absolutely loves it. Myself, I haven't read anything zombieish except I Am Legend and Warm Bodies. :)
