    This novella is a great addition to the Remaining story. I really like how this zombie story delves in to different aspects of life after the apocalypse. Absolute power corrupts absolutely and this has usually (but not always) been the case throughout history, a post-apocalyptic environment would probably exacerbate this sort of thing and I like how Molles keeps that as an undercurrent during the story. Oh and zombies. Let's not forget the flesh eating zombies. Not too much of an appearance in this short novella but I suspect there will be plenty more down the road. Can't wait for the next one!

    Exciting to see through the eyes of Abe and getting his backstory. It's a nice tie between him and Lee, building the anticipation for their imminent coming together. Can't wait for the final in the series. Glad there is something to help tide me over until it's released. One complaint, the last 15% of the e-book was the first chapter of the first book in the series. If I'm reading this, don't you think I've read that already?! Give me a snippet from book 5!

    Before starting to read this novella is good to know that completing the fourth book of The Remaining series, Fractured, is highly recommended. The novella gives more details about characters and events that appear/happen in the last chapter of Fractured so if you don't want anything spoilers, read the first four books, then start with this one. As all other books from The Remaining series this one is simply brilliant. Dynamic, good and easy to follow writing style and not a second when you would feel bored. In order to avoid spoilers not only for this book but also for the other four currently published from the series, I won't go in too much details about the story, but in the novella you'd get the opportunity to meet some characters that were only just mention up till now and learn more about their motivations and feelings. If you enjoy The Remaining series this novella is an absolute must-read. Its only problem for me? Too short. I'd love to read more about the stories of the other Coordinators and how they reach the point they are at now. Hopefully the other novella that is to come in May will bring even more light on these events.

    This fifty-page novella fits nicely into the "Remaining" saga, either read directly before or after book 4, "Fractured." I thought the story began a bit roughly, but picked up considerably in quality in its second half. It follows the character of Abe, another of Project Homeland's elite soldiers, who has taken up a position of command in Colorado in the president's rebuilding effort there. Abe comes to find out certain things that challenge his sense of duty and cause him to question whether he and certain others are doing the right thing. Abe's character is almost certain to play a major role in book five of the series, as the shocking ending to "Fractured" indicates. He is a decent and caring soldier, a man the likes of which we have not seen in this series aside from Lee Hardin. After losing a couple of key protagonists in books 3 and 4, it'll be nice to see another guy we can really root for enter the picture!

    I dove into this book head first. I had to know the side of Major Abe, the man that was supposed to be Lee's best friend. I had to know the why behind the reasons Abe did what he did. But, I knew instantly that things aren't what they seem to be. Abe is dealing with a lot as well, and he's learning that the people he trusted are not who they seem. It was very devastating to see who and how these people are using the one thing people need to survive. And Abe is only doing what he feels is best. He has to be careful with some of the decisions he makes, cause if he makes one wrong move, it could be his last. Again, D.J. Molles has sucked me into this crazy world of the infected. People aren't who they say they are, and I'm highly anticipating book 5!

    The two stars is because the writing is predictably terrible as usual with The Remaining books. But these books are seriously fast becoming some of my favorite easy fiction. In 'Trust' you're back in the post-outbreak apocalypse of the other three books, only this time from the perspective of the remaining military and acting president of what remains of the U.S. after the outbreak. This is a quick, fun ride. And the terrible writing is expected, please excuse for the sake of the super fun plot. You should probably read this novella only if you've read the 3 books in the series and can't wait for the 4th novel to come out.

    If you're expecting a full-length novel when you purchase this, you'll be surprised that it is very short. It is a novella, but I knew that when I bought it and it was worth the price. I liked that this novella backtracks a little and sheds more light on Abe and his background. It adds to the original story-line by revealing some of the motivation and the "who" is behind the attempt to make Captain Harden a target. I hope Molles keeps writing Abe's story as helps keep the story fresh. Keep up the great work, Mr. Molles! I'm looking forward to the next novella... and hopefully a full-sized novel soon.

    This short story really packs a punch and is critical reading for fans of this series. In it we catch up with Abe Darabie and see the events that led up to some of his most controversial decisions. The Remaining: Trust will soon be followed by The Remaining: Faith: A Novella, which will feature a minor character from The Remaining: Fractured. These two short works will help set the stage for book 5. I recommend reading both short works and then re-reading the last 3 chapters of Fractured to prepare for the next full length novel. DJ Molles has done it again. This is real good stuff. 5/5

    Good fill in for the Remainder seriesI believe I've read the first three books in Molles' "Remainder" series, and enjoyed the adventures of Lee Harnden and a nice variation on the zombie apocalypse, centering on people more than zombie massacres. This is no different, a short story about what's happening in what's left of the U.S. government, which Harnden finds an adversary to his mission to rebuild. Easy reading, good characters, thoroughly enjoyable.

    Good book, but I wish it was longer. It answered a few questions, but brought up many more for which we will just have to wait for answers.One would wish that, after mostly surviving an apocolypse that humanity would be better, improved, kinder. But no. Humans will be humans. Greedy, evil, in search of power. Sad and infuriating at the same time.

    Usually I'm highly skptical towards novellas - especially when they are a sort of spin-off of a series from the point of view of some character you usually only read about. However, D.J. Molles delivered another fast-paced story, full of action and also insight. It was a delight (although much too short of course)!

  • Robert Chapman

    This novella is a well timed departure from the main characters and introduction of some new characters who have been loosely referenced up to this point. It's short and sweet, however, it sets the stage for book five, Allegiance. I'm looking forward to jumping into the next novella, book 4.6, titled Faith.

    Fills in the gapsIn book three we read about another person who we briefly met in book one, I had even forgotten who it was. In trust, we learn just a little bit more about what he is going through and it leads into book four.All in all, this was a really good novella and once again Molles has kept enthralled till the very end.

    Interesting insight into Abe and the situation in Colorado. I did prefer Faith because of it's intensity and the very different character perspective. This was good though...I'm grateful to know more about power hungry President Briggs and to really understand Abe's motivation to join up with Lee. Short n' sweet.

    His first few books had good plots and character development but lacked polishing, due to being self-published. Now, thanks to the popularity of those books, the author has been picked up by a real publishing house, with real editors. Still a lot of proofreading/editing issues, but not nearly as many. Nice to see a success story for a self-published author.

    This was a great short story and it only made me more impatient for the next Remaining book to come out in the spring. D.J. is one of my favorite zompoc author's. His stories are believable and hardcore. I'd recommend this story and all of the Remaining books to anyone who likes great storytelling.

    Decentit's an ok read. I already thought it was too short only to find that 20% of the pages weren't part of the story, which by the way had some good tension, but nothing that sustained itself for very long.

    This one started out slow but gradually became more interesting. Filled in some gaps and broadened the scope of the world that this author has created. I'm still curious what his end-game is for this series.

    Great addition to the world. This book answers some questions brought up in the other books. I like the charaters and love where the plot seems to be leading. I am only saddened I have to wait for more!Write faster!

    One of the best apocalyptic series I have read. Well written, characters that are real, that you love and hate, characters that you relate to and root for. This is my second time reading this series and I highly recommend this series.

    Good Quick FixThis was great to hold me over until The Remaining: Book 5 comes out next year. It was also nice to get insight on other parts of the country and what the Military is doing elsewhere. But at the end of the day, I'm still ready for more Lee Harden action!

  • Mary

    Three stars, I liked it. It is definitely a "tweener" novella, good for background knowledge but not the riveting, edge of your seat read like the rest of the Remaining series. 2015 can't come soon enough!

  • Clayton Collins
    2018-10-16 07:48

    Where's the rest of the book???I'm only giving three stars because I was upset at how short this book was. I was set to continue the story and only get six short chapters. Please hurry with the rest of the series Mr. Models.

    Excellent!Another chapter in the Remaining saga that gives some insight to the mission against Captain Lee Harden. Major Abe Darabie is fleshed out as a character and once you read this, you might not hate him so much...I know I don't...

    It was great to see who Abe is and where he was coming from. This was a short story so I didn't get as much details on his past that I would like. What led him to be where he was instead of doing his duty as a Coordinator. Maybe if he catches up to Lee we will get to find out!

    Nothing is ever quite what it seemsThis is a very good back story that connects to the main arc that will keep this alive even longer. I waited a long time to get this I think the pricing was to Hough when it first came out, but eventually broke down and bought it.

    A great little short story that gives you a more in depth work of what led up to the final scenes of “Fractured”. A quick read with tons of action al really wet my appetite for the next book “Allegiance”!
