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 ...more

Not the best book in the series, but it's a big improvement over the last three. Goddamn, this series is weird.

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

This book is proof that good characters can carry even the most ridiculous plot. This book was by far my favorite out of all of the Remnants series. I don't care that the ending was clearly a rush job in order to complete the series, I don't care that it was a departure from equally-if-not-more important events, I actually ENJOYED this book, which is more than I can say for most of the series. The first book absolutely nailed the "we're all going to die and everything is terrible" tone, and ...more

The things happening on this book are done for the sake of wrapping up the series yet it works and I believe this to be the best book in the series so far. This book is both hopeful and desolate, it was a beautiful balance(view spoiler)

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
This was a pretty cool installation of the series. Tate's never been my favorite character, but it was still interesting. I was very surprised that I ended up liking Yago so much, and I'm not entirely sure the ending makes sense even though I kind of saw it coming. I think the last book in the series will really be what makes or breaks THIS one, as well as the series as a whole.

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.
