about

Kassy Tayler's Remnants of Tomorrow brings all the factions together. The royals, the shiners, the rovers and the everyday workers of the dome as they fight against each other and the inevitable. It is time to leave the dome.

Wren's father takes her on a journey through the dome where she sees the after effects of the destruction caused by her friends and the blue coats who came into the tunnels. What he doesn't realize is that instead of subduing her, he is giving more purpose and fuel to her cause. When he realizes his plan has backfired, he sells Wren and her friends caught inside to the rovers. They manage to escape and add more fuel to the hatred between the rovers and the dome. Wren and her friends from inside the dome and America are caught in the middle as the battle escalates and whoever wins the battle wins the right to life.

It's up to Wren to make both sides see that the only way they can survive is by working together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from SO preachy While I appreciate the closure and the wrap-up to the plot and the love triangle and all, I felt like I just read 300 pages of ruminating and preaching on the nature of life and freedom. I don't remember feeling this way about the rest of the series, but we were treated to so many of Wrens' moralizing thoughts and grand statements about life that it came to feel a bit like a sermon thinly disguised as a YA novel by way of a flimsy love triangle. It got to the point where you could totally recognize at a glance the paragraphs where it would diverge from the plot into a solid paragraph of moralizing, partly because every single one would end with two or three rhetorical questions. There would be two or three of these paragraphs per page, and it sped up the reading process, as I got good at skimming over them to get back to the plot. Basically, it tried way too hard to be meaningful and instead came off as preachy in the extreme. Wren came off as preachy in the extreme, not to mention majorly stubborn and strangely unfeeling towards the death and destruction around her, for all that she professed her overwhelming need to take care of everyone. That juxtaposition turned her "need to care for everyone" into "need to be in charge and play the hero," because even though she said she couldn't bear to leave anyone behind, she left a lot of people behind pretty quickly once they moved past her sphere of influence. By that, I mean tons of people died and she couldn't seem to care less, possessing a remarkable ability to spout "heartfelt" platitudes and then move on, perfectly happy. There were some good things, but I am currently too annoyed at being preached at to think of what they are. I'm glad I've had resolution for this series, but that's about the best thing I can say right now.
