Mike is Very Very Angry: A Review in Two (and a half) Parts

Part .5: Fuck You, TVTropes...
...if you lied to me about what I'm about to describe. Because that would be embarrassing.

Part 1: Fuck You, Scholastic
Fuck you. FUCK YOU.

Alright, so I should explain why I'm so angry, even though this review has two parts. See, here's what happened: Tate, one of the minor characters in this series, was written by Applegrant to be a lesbian. But then Scholastic removed it. They censored it.

Selviytyjät joutuvat valitsemaan, seuratako Tamaraa ja Vauvaa vai 2Facea. Vauvan motiivit ovat epäselvät, mutta kun Tamara onnistuu pääsemään Ratsastajien johtajaksi, ei asiasta ole epäselvyyttä. Häntä seuraavat ihmiset pakotetaan mukaan taisteluun Häijyjä sinisiä vastaan, jotta Vauva eli aluksentekijä voi vallata aluksen takaisin itselleen. Ehtivätkö 2Face ja Billy väliin, ennen kuin aluksentekijä ehtii toteuttaa suunnitelmansa?

I had thought the guy on the cover might be Anamull, as he has the sort of almost fierce expression I associate with Anamull’s tough comportment. It’s sure not Billy, Yago, or Jobs, or even Mo’Steel. And he’s too fierce looking (and young) to be T.R. or Burroway. But I guess it must be D-Caf instead, stalking in the trees as he spies on someone. Even though he looks pretty much nothing like I imagine D-Caf…

You know all of those alliance shifts and divisions and build up we’ve been having the

This one was actually very very good -- 4.5 stars, and the closest I've wanted to give 5 stars to a Remnants book (I may still backtrack to up my rating, depending on how the rest go). The scale of the action at the end made it almost feel like a series finale; although being the seventh book in a fourteen book series, I suppose it's more fitting to say that it's the mid-season climax.

The race to the bridge of the ship continues, as multiple forces all converge in an attempt to reach Mother: our

I don't even know anymore. These books are so short, I can't keep track what happens in one as opposed to the next.

There are three different alien species along with the last of the humans, all fighting for control of Mother (the ship). These two books were about a war, a "final battle" between the aliens, the humans just trying to stay alive.

In addition to the editing, one of the characters is really reducing my enjoyment of the series. He's the US president's son, spoiled rotten. As the book

The humans who are still alive from their destroyed planet are unable to find common ground, and they are split up into three groups at the start of this book. There is a showdown between the true entity behind the Baby and Billy, and Yago is devolving into a completely out of touch self-aggrandizing zombie. (Well, not that that's that much different from how he was before.) The fight between Riders and Meanies continues, and what finally happens to the future of humanity will be decided by the ...more

Remnants- by: KA Applegate
This book is pretty good. It has lots of adventure in it, so that’s why I wanted to read this book. It turns out that I really liked this book. It has lots of fun stuff. It is also interesting. But It is probably not in my top 10 list of books.
Billy and Yogo are friends and they fight enemies from another planet to save the earth and everyone on it that is left. There are three groups that try to save the world. They want to save and take control of the ship. Getting

A lot more action in this book than in the last.

All of the aliens; the blue meanies, the riders, the squid, launch into all out war over control of the bridge and ultimately Mother. The Baby, who has been a bit of a mystery until now, shows himself for what he really is and Billy gets pulled into the final battle for Mother.

I think this book is the turning point for this series. We learn a lot in this book about the different alien species and Mother. The battle for control is over and now we

Perhaps I read this with too many gaps in between sessions, because I am now mainly just confused. I really liked the fight between Billy and the Baby and Jobs's part in all that, and I understood that part. But a lot of the shifting alliances has started to confuse me. I also am having a hard time keeping the characters straight, which I remember being a problem the first time I tried to read the series, but at least it's kicking in later, this time.

Not the best of the Remnants, but had its redeeming qualities.

I was always looking forward to each release for the Remnants books. As always, this one combined scariness of "other" and scariness of "ourselves" in one volume.
