Trust no one. The Remnants are outsiders on the planet they once called Home. 500 years after the Rock, Earth is an arid wasteland, inhabited only by a handful of human descendants & mutated animals.

This book is genuinely terrible! This is the first time in all of Remnants that I was actively Not Enjoying Myself while reading and was so desperate for the whole ordeal to come to an end. It was so terribly written, in terms of actual prose, and character decisions, and overall scene construction. It has failed on literally every single front. This is the first time that it read like stunted middle-grade fiction, despite featuring such dark content as a murder and an attempted rape (for ...more
Better than the last one, in that it is solid, though the way some of the characterizations are going are not. At least the action is solid, and marginally believable in context. Full review below:

That looks like it should be 2Face on the cover again, considering the Asian look, the half-covered face, and the design on her shirt which looks like it could be creepy crawlies… if it is not her, my guess is it is probably Echo.

That way lies madness, [Violet] told herself. And there’s enough of that

As a way to appease the Marauders--enemies of the Alphas--someone must fight the Beasts and win, and that someone is Mo'Steel. Good thing he likes a challenge! (What the Marauders learn from his involvement is also a challenge at first.) And though Billy did his best to disengage, he seems to be back, with an important message about the remaining missing Mayflower survivor.

An action packed chapter in the life of the Remnants.

After being abandoned on Earth by Yago, the Remnants discover that there are survivors. They meet the Alpha's who live underground in a biosphere under very controlled conditions. They also meet the Marauders, who are a nomadic, violent group. The Mo-steel inadvertently kills the Marauder leader and as is the custom is now the new leader. But he has to prove himself worthy by battling 'The Beasts'. The Remnants and the Marauders head out on a

Unfortunately, Remnants has lost its magical hold over me. Probably because I'm not thirteen anymore.

Nevertheless, it's still full of horror and shaky science, and definitely a fascinating series for younger readers.

I can't believe that he actually killed the beasts! And he even got Newton to obey him. I wonder what will happen with the riders coming back. I was wondering what had happened to them and where they had gone.

It's still really hard for me to get into these books, for a reason that I can't quite put my finger on. But I'm almost done at this point. Let's forge ahead...
