As soon as I read the blurb on The Remnant, by Monte Wolverton, I knew I wanted to read it! I signed up for the book tour and dived right in. This book instantly put me in mind of Left Behind but it carries its own style and dystopian/post-apocalyptic feel. It drew me in and I was hungry, but a couple issues hung me up.
To be placed in concentration camps for carrying your faith is a huge deal, but that's what Grant had to live with. When the world fell apart, there was no great rapturing and all was left in chaos under an governmental, iron fist. When Grant and his team of escapees run, seeking sanctuary with a Christian group, going by the remnant of a piece of bible. The escapees soon find out, all Christians aren't who they say they are.
The story is powerful and saddening at the same time, and left me with the thoughts of another book to follow. I found the story to be written rather well, but there were a cluster of grammatical errors. I was able to overlook them, and they didn't hurt the story, but they were very distracting. I just wish, with a story like this one, it was cleaned up better. The other issue was overkill on backstories. I like the extra information but sometimes, enough is too much.. It was a cool story but just a little overdone.
You may enjoy this Christian, dystopian fiction. It's a fast read with barely any dry spots. On to the next read!📚
