What Remains: Book One
The apocalypse has passed. The dead have risen. But what remains…
Colby, Darcy and Barrett are hardened soldiers with a new war. A deadly disease has decimated the human population, reducing it to small pockets of survivors who fight daily again the raging hordes of undead plaguing the planet. The three men are part of a recon mission, scouting locations where humans have been reported still alive amidst the dead. But after ten months of searching, they’re ready to give up.
Abby Brennigan has been surviving on her own for half a year, hiding out in an old abandoned control tower. She hasn’t seen anything remotely alive in what feels like forever, until the three men stumble upon her hideout and into her heart. She’d promised herself she wouldn’t get close again…wouldn’t put herself through the torture of watching another person she cared about slowly fade until they turn into a monster straight off the pages of a horror novel.
But the boys aren’t taking no for an answer and as they face one test after another, the big question is—how long can they all remain untainted.
What better way to while away an afternoon than reading a zombie apocalypse book? Kris Norris’s novel, What Remains: Untainted,” shows that even at the end of the world, love and desire has a place. Abby has been alone for six months, since the last of her group was attacked by zombies. Barrett, Darcy, and Colby are soldiers, who run reconnaissance missions for a small compound. Certainly, none of them were expecting to find love in the time of zombies!
While very fast paced, Norris is able to make each character unique, and well rounded. They quickly develop feeling for each other- and when they act on them….hot, hot, hot! The book is filled with several good menage scenes (no m/m action), and interspersed with some one on one action as well. I’m not sure how well the world will turn out with such a limited population, but these four characters have certainly been provided a HAE.
