"The Remnant" picks up where Desecration left off, and proceeds to steamroll ahead. Unlike the last few books, where the books only covered a very short time span, this book starts at month 43 and continues until month 72 (6 years) of the Tribulation. This should please the many people who had begun to feel like the series was dragging on way too long (however, I have been a fan of all the books, whether they covered two years or two days).
Nicolae Carpathia has a blood-thirst that just cannot be quenched. No matter how many people he kills or has killed, it's not enough for him. He wants more. Unfortunately those pesky little Bowl judgments keep throwing kinks into his plan. To make matters worse, even those who have taken the mark of loyalty (otherwise known as the mark of the beast) are regretting having done so. Many of them realize who they have pledged themselves to, as well as the fact that they cannot undo what they have done. Even those who don't see Carpathia as the anti-Christ tire of his rule and have begun to openly disobey.
If you were put off be the previous three books, this book should be enough to bring you back into the fold. The writing is better than it has been, all of the characters, both new and old, are flushed out a little more, and the suspense from one chapter to the next is still there.
In "The Remnant", LaHaye and Jenkins return with the popular adventures of the Tribulation Force and the evil rule of Nicolae Carpathia. The setting is one month into the Great Tribulation, and Carpathiaï¿½s rule becomes ever more brutal with each passing day. A remnant of Christian believers gathers together in the city of Petra to await the Glorious Appearing of the Lord, and the Global Community quickly bombs the city in an attempt to finish them off. Youï¿½ll have to read the book to find out what happens next, but true fans will not be disappointed as the authors continue to weave a thrilling tale. Only two more left!
I canï¿½t wait to find out what happens next, and how the authors deal with the battle of Armageddon. I look forward to reading books eleven and twelve, and I encourage other Left Behind fans to pick up "Conquest of Paradise: An End-Times Nano-Thriller" as additional reading. That book got me interested in this series, and what a great book! What "Left Behind" lacks in realism, "Conquest of Paradise" adds in abundance. The prose is much more advanced and the international politics are identical to the current world scene and the war on terror. Peppered with biblical verses, "Conquest of Paradise" will turn even the most hardened skeptics into believers, or at least it will make them think twice. Itï¿½s one lovers of end-times fiction shouldnï¿½t miss.
Book eleven, "Armageddon" continues the adventures of the Tribulation Force, and the armies of the world will gather together at that fabled location long ago inscribed into our minds by Biblical prophecy. Canï¿½t wait to read the rest!
If you're a fan of end times fiction, I suggest picking up the "Christ Clone Trilogy". The plot's a bit more believable, and you only have three books to buy instead of twelve! Even better is "Conquest of Paradise" which is only one book and presents the most realistic portrayal yet of the tribulation. "Conquest of Paradise" combines the page turning excitement of Left Behind with the technology and realism of "In His Image", "Birth of an Age", and "Acts of God". Readers would do far better to pick up these books instead. By now, I'm not sure whether I'll buy "Armageddon" (book eleven, twelve, seventy-five...?) or not! But I'll go ahead and give "The Remnant" four stars because I like the genre.
I loved this book from the moment I opened the front cover. This is another amazing literary exertion from the masterminds behind the Left Behind series. As each book nears the end of time, the stories get deeper, the suspense becomes more unbearable and the cliffhangers wretch your mind. Every time I read one of the books in the series, I always find myself changing my actions in everyday life because I realized I'll never know when my time will come or the world will end.

This is the 10th in the series and I have read the first 9. I find this book a little slower in the story line than the previous books. Read morePublished on Dec 12 2013 by Larry W. Behnish
