Hide your children, lock your doors, and load your guns because zombies are real and they are coming. Danny Terrence knows this better than anyone. He spent months preparing for the inevitable moment the disease would reach his small town. What he didn’t prepare for is the fact that nobody really believes him.

Luckily for him, an old classmate and bully just happens to be the first one bitten. The bad news is that the family with the biggest arsenal of guns just packed up and left town, leaving them defenseless from an oncoming zombie horde. Being a leader isn’t turning out the way Danny imagined.

Yet four other survivors easily have it worse than him. Between a thirteen-year-old girl on a road trip from hell, a family of paranoid hunters having to deal with their feelings for the first time ever, a stubborn doctor butting heads with a cold-hearted sergeant and an amoral British professor carrying the fate of humanity in his hands, Danny has it easy. Unless, of course, they all end up in his town, messing with his already messed up life.

Follow these five people as their paths cross and their lives and hopes are challenged in this thrilling novel. Those Who Remain: Book One is part of a trilogy.

***Shelley C – #NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
This book was great! It has all the elements of what I think makes a fantastic read.  For me, I had no problem reading the multiple points of view.  There is some jumping back and forth due to the periods where characters interact with each other, but this really caused no issues in reading and understanding the story. I think the author did an awesome job developing the individual characters, molding the interactions of multiple cause and affect situations, keeping the story moving without pulling me out of it. This is the first in a series and if you want to know how it ends you will have to read the entire trilogy. I highly recommend this to all dystopian/zombie novel lovers!
