Andriana is a Remnant, one of the gifted teens born on the seventh day during the seventy-seventh Harvest after the Great War, and destined to act as humanity’s last shield against the horrors that now plague those who remain.
After years of training in stealth and warfare, Andriana and her Knight protector, Ronan, are finally ready to answer the Call and begin the life they were designed for. But as they embark with the other Remnants on the first of their assignments, they quickly discover that the world beyond their protected Valley home is more dangerous than they imagined.
The Sons of Sheol will stop at nothing to prevent Dri and Ronan from rescuing anyone sympathetic to the Remnants’ cause. And as the Remnants attempt to battle the demonic forces, other enemies close in. Dangers intensify, but so do Dri’s feelings for Ronan–the one emotion she is not meant to feel. In the midst of their mission, Andriana must find a way to master her feelings, or risk compromising everything.

Remnants is inspirational fiction’s riposte to secular dystopian young adult literature such as Divergent, The Hunger Games and The Chrysalids. With undercurrents of a faith based worldview and message entwined in to the story, Remnants delivers on components of action, intrigue, suspense and romance all with an allegorical twist. Characters are gifted with supernatural abilities employed for purposes of good or evil. Dri is a complex and evolving protagonist who defies predictability or typecasting with her unique abilities. The forbidden love between Dri and her protector and knight Ronan entices readers with the complexity and uncertainty that surrounds their relationship. The setting straddles the line between futuristic and fantastical and showcases Lisa’s brilliant imagination to create different cities and cultures unique and distinct from each other. This spiritual battle of good versus evil will leave readers breathless with the mounting action, twisting plot and riveting characters. YA dystopian/apocalyptic literature is having a moment and there isn’t a moment in this book that you want to miss!
