Remeon’s Destiny is quite a gem. It’s set in 1947 (an interesting date we eventually find) on farmlands of a rural Virginia town that is brilliantly painted by author J.W. Garrett. We immediately get conflict in a big way between the Thomas/Stephen and his father James. What I like most is that we understand both their desires, neither wrong: the son wanting to go his own way on an adventure and see the world, and the father truly needed his son to follow in his footsteps for the sake of family ...more

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi, but I love a story that’s written well and tugs at multiple emotions. And this one did that. I also like the depth of the characters which is essential to bringing out those emotions. Flat characters, no emotions. The country and alien planet settings reminded me of the old Superman movie with Christopher Reeve, switching from the alien world of Krypton to Kansas. The love element was a nice spice, but the life and death elem ...more

Remeon's Destiny follows a young boy as he struggles with the 'simple' farmer life his father wants to pass down. He wants more adventure, like the comics he reads. But be careful what you wish for.

This book opens with family conflict and closes that conflict through unexpected channels. I'll admit, the 1947 reference was lost on me but if you know anything about alien history you'll catch it.

Thomas faces both family trials and trials out of this world as he's thrown into the chaos of an otherwo

I'm starting to listen to more audiobooks so I can experience books on the way home from work in my car. I started this one on the way home from work Friday and finished by Sunday night. It was quite a unique read, and not at all what I expected from reading the synopsis or looking at the cover. But the characters and story kept my interest throughout and the reader's voice was such that it didn't take away from the story in any way, in fact, it complimented it. I'm looking forward to more books ...more

I liked the characters and the story a lot. Arista was my favorite character because I could relate to her. I've never read a book like this before. It was very different than anything I've read before but in a good way. It was hard to put down. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Young adult fantasy is not my typical genre for reading. However, add a little time and space travel and I'm all in! Remeon's Destiny has so much to offer for a wide range of readers...vivid language, colorful characters, lots of conflict, unexpected plot twists and turns. Thomas, a restless teen, is ready for a change in life and a little adventure. He certainly receives more than he bargains for finding himself transported to Remeon as the star candidate for "the perfect match". (I'll not spoi ...more

An excellent novel. Well written, well rounded, gripping. I don't often read YA novels, but my high school students inspired me to pick this up, and I am glad I did. The layering of the stories, the weaving of the worlds, the intertwined destines drew me in and had me turning pages and wanting more. The author writes with a clarity and detail that genuinely makes you care about the characters, and the outcome. A triumph of a first novel, hoping for many many more.

Im having mixed feelings about this one.
The start, with all the family life, decisions our young prota has to make, the father-son relationship developing, the hardships he overcomes - that all is great written, with deep chars.
But once the Remeon people got into play, it felt off. The people there felt flat and forced, a society that got explained and yet seemed to miss the important bits. Even the prota was like a different person, maybe to outline the differences, but it wasnt a nice develop

Historical fiction sci-fi - always an interesting combination. While there were some intriguing moments, there were also confusing ones.

I just finished reading J.W. Garrett’s Remeon’s Destiny for the second time. My strongest impression from the first read was the author’s ability to move the story forward, from a post-WWII American farm to a futuristic world called Remeon. The protagonist is Thomas, a good kid fighting against his father’s expectations. Tension between the two is palpable, thanks to Garrett’s deft character development. As for female characters, Thomas’s mother and sisters are believable foils to the male drama ...more
