One nation, without God...

          Colton Pierce apprehends Abberants—those who display symptoms of faith—and quarantines them on a remote island to ensure public safety.  Years prior, the government released a genetically-engineered super flu that destroyed the genes believed to be the biological source of spiritual experience in an effort to rid the world of terrorism. As an extractor with the Center for Theological Control, Colton is dedicated to the cause.
          But Colton's steadfast commitment is challenged when he learns his own son has been targeted for extraction. An underground militia, the Remnant, agrees to help Colton save his son in exchange for his assistance with their plan to free the Aberrants on the island.
          Colton is faced with the most important decision of his life. Remain faithful to the CTC? Or give up everything to save his son?

Here are my thoughts on this intriguing book.

Author William Michael Davidson created interesting, realistic and likable characters for his latest release, THE REMNANT. He also created a protagonist, Colton Pierce, that most readers will despise and won’t be able to relate to at first.

But Davidson’s unique storytelling abilities will draw readers in where they discover characters grow and evolve as the story unfolds. Maybe the protagonist isn’t what he first appeared to be after all.

In addition, Davidson tackles the issue of religion and where it might have and might not have a place in the world. Readers who let the faith aspect of this book keep them from reading it will miss out on a truly exceptional and well-balanced story.

The futuristic setting may not be as far-fetched as some, but it offers a thought-provoking look at how things could be. The story flows smoothly and at a good pace.

THE REMNANT is a tantalizing tale that will make you stop and ponder the what ifs of life and how you would react in the same setting. A fascinating read you don’t want to miss.

  1. We're already at a place where religion is attacked and one's beliefs can be persecuted. I don't think The Remnant's future is that far fetched.

  2. I really do respect authors who write speculative fiction. They create entirely new realities, and that's not easy! Thanks for sharing this one, Mason.

  3. An excellent time to be writing dystopian literature! Love the cover for this book.
