In the book Remnant, author Daniel Peyton, writes about astro-geologist Anna who is a secret Christian and part of the Remnant which is systematically being destroyed. The PSC has been working for 200 years to find evolving life on other planets to prove religion is false. Seemingly finding this proof on a new moon, Anna’s faith is put to the test. Can Anna and her human-like robot Z find out the truth of what’s really going on? And will they survive it all? Does God still work in a world that has rejected Him? This is a great, thought provoking read. I would highly recommend this book. I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The novel seems to drag on and leave me a bit confused. I can't seem to understand what happened, historically-speaking. Why did society end up like that? Also, it appeared that the female lead was insipid and emotionless. This work doesn't really pull me in or succeed with world-building. It's not a bad idea for a novel though.

A good story with a good message. Some light editing would help, but it has nice pacing and some humor, as well as enough action to help keep it interesting. Probably most enjoyable to Christians.

I really appreciate the advanced copy for review!!

Remnant by Daniel Peyton, a good read but could have been better. Background needed a little fleshing out earlier on, and characters could have been a bit more developed, but overall I enjoyed it and will recommend to others.

Thank you to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. I have found that writers who meld a Christian theme with other genres can give a hit or miss reading experience. This was a miss. The characters were not well developed and the description of the science, politics, and military of the future glossed over and almost childish. The story itself is a good one just not well presented.

Anna is a scientist for the PSC, but is also secretly a Christian. This cannot be leaked out, as all religion has been banned. After the announcement of alien life is made, she abandons her faith. Through all that happens, she learns that God never abandoned her.

Remnant has several things going for it, and that make it an engaging book. The story has enough action to hold your attention. It isn’t a real fast paced action, but it moves along smoothly and gives you time to think about what is going on. There are many different characters involved, and though their lives are separated at first, they come together in the end. The way this is accomplished is well done and it all fits together nicely.

In addition to the good story, the matter of trusting God is at the forefront. Anna faces challenges to her faith, but eventually realizes that God’s love and trustworthiness is not dependent on hers. Many of the characters come to the same conclusion as they see the events unfold. They also realize the danger of blindly following someone based on reputation.

Overall, Remnant is a good story with a good message.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
