Wow, did I miss Tate. I had no idea how very much I missed Tate until I realised that here was a protagonist who was behaving relatively sensibly, who was at her wit's end but trying her best, who did reasonable and logical things when stuck in a terrible situation. A protagonist who is enjoyable to spend time with, and could carry the entire book by herself, almost completely sans the rest of the Remnants. (This really just reinforces to me that this series might have benefited from having 1 na ...more

Before writing the full review below: Might even bump this up to 5 stars after I figure out my review. This is the solidity I want from a book/installment in a series. Twists, turns, characters being pragmatic and sensible, and really getting into their head :)

That is definitely Tate on the cover! And those definitely look like cocoons of a sort….

Of all of the Remnants books, this one reads the most solid; I would almost go so far as to say that it gives off the vibe of being of the

Tate has had prophetic dreams about the future of Earth for a long time, but nobody's really paid much attention. But now that she's on this wandering ship with the folks who didn't get off on Earth, she's in trouble: Yago has gone insane, and she and everyone else is being stalked by a gestalt entity known as the Troika, who have turned into weird sentient slime and are coming for her cells. Her fight for survival is a beacon of greatness in this series as it spirals to a close.

I had a theory a

Survival by Katherine Applegate

Why I read it: More Remnants.

Rating: 3/5

What I thought: It’s definitely interesting to take a break away from Earth and go back to Mother after so long away, but it didn’t quite work out for me. It really should have, because it’s really quite mythic, epic, wide-reaching and sad, and somewhat suitably sets up the final book, but I think I’ve just been rendered far too immune to Remnants’ charms. Plus it doesn’t help that the Troik

Remnants #13 was awesome! It's all about Tate and her survival aboard the ship when four crazy "evolved" beings are trying to eat her. Let me just say there is a whole new meaning to "you are what you eat," and I have heard of multiple personalities but this is ridiculous.

There have been so many twists and turns in this story, I can't believe it's still going. Tate's story was unbelievably sweet, but also very very sad. There's only one book left, and I'm not looking forward to the series I've been reading for 5 years to end.

In this book we follow Tate as she is left alone on Mother when Yago and the Trioke take over and leave the other Remnants stranded on a destroyed Earth. Very interesting chapter and I can not wait to see how it all ends in the last book.
