I read the two previous books, Deep Winter and Shattered, with delight. Criticism over lack of editing was valid, but the story was good. I was eager to begin Remnant. After a while, Remnant couldn't end soon enough.

The protagonist, Rick Drummond, survived and thrived in the previous two books because he was in his civilian element and culture. In Remnant, the author crafts some secret-squirrel pseudo-military/spy past for Drummond in order to force this story forward. Drummond is selected by the Governor of Washington to become an Army Colonel in command of a support brigade. This is where a good fiction story becomes a fairy tale.

(Spoiler alert for the rest of this review.)

Drummond, of course, knows everything... including how to command an Army brigade. Sadly, the author learned about the Army from Hollywood. Several times, he confuses brigades and battalions. He refers to Sergeants Major as simply "Sergeant". Thomas Sherry seems to hold junior troops and officers in high esteem, but he holds senior military leaders in contempt. His book would have been far better with some review and input by someone with military experience.

Of course, the climax was beyond unbelievable, even for fiction. Drummond, commanding his ragged 3,000 man support brigade, wipes out the opposing 80,000 man army with some new super-secret laser weapon - in 30 seconds. The ending of the book implies that he's risen to some high political office. It's almost as if Thomas Sherry struggled with this story for 650 pages and then got bored, so he made up some science-fiction ending.

Sherry's past two novels were fantastic reads. Sadly, this book is a prime example of why authors should write about what they know. In fact, it's so bad that it casts a shadow on the credibility achieved in Deep Winter and Shattered.

Remnant is the Third book of the of the trilogy Deep Winter Series, Shatter (Deep Winter) were the first Two. I could not put the books down once I started them and was glad I did not find them until I had all 3 books available to read at once. Imagine trying to cook dinner and turn the pages while you are focused on what is going to happen next.

The only problem I could find in these books is that Thomas Sherry should not have self published these books or given away the first copy of Deep Winter. Anybody that can write 3 books at 600+ pages and can hold my interest that long and that deep - deserved to make a tremendous profit off of these books.

As I mentioned in the review of the first book, I'm partial to stories that focus on rebuilding after disaster. I think they teach more and prepare the reader...if they are open to cautionary tales like these.

This 3rd installment ends the series, and I very much recommend all of them. Price point is very good, and there's none of this "pay me 5 bucks for 2 chapters" BS. You get 600+ actual pages in each book.

The reason I didn't give this 5 stars, as I did the 2 previous books, is that it strains believability just a bit too much. Although the entire story is well-told and realistic, the fact that the protagonist is placed in the position he is in throughout the book is, to my mind, not that believable. I understand why the author did it: he had a message he couldn't impart to readers if his main character stayed home on the farm.

I also agree with another reviewer that the characters "left behind" by the protagonist's fantastical elevation into the military command structure are just...abandoned.

I still highly recommend all the books in this series.

I've now read Deep Winter 4 times, Shatter 3 times and Remnant twice. I fully expect to read them again. My husband is reading them now and he loves them too. There's definitely a good "to do" list if you read carefully as well as good ideas for planning for a very different future. There's also a good story and the characterization is well done. I do much prefer "okay" to "k" but I don't have teens so maybe they really do speak that way.

Looking at when these were written has been interesting because some of the things discussed are very real today. High prices of food necessitate gardening not just for fun but for survival. Investing in gold/silver is at an all time high and more and more people are taking physical acquisition seriously. It's not just beans, bullets and bandaids but the building community that is stressed in these books that makes me happy. Bunker survival is a limited vision investment and Mr. Drummond shows that community building is what you need for long term survival.

I highly recommend these books and would surely love to see them go big time so folks might receive these as a clue by four before it is too late.

This is one of the best "Survival" books I have read. This family was well prepared for the coming events..couldn't put it down. There are three books in the series and all of them keep you guessing. A real intreging story..hope there are more to follow.

I had high hopes for this book. The first in the series was excellant, and the second was very good. This book was disappointing on just so many levels. The technology and armaments were really science fiction and just not believable. Harder to read was the pages of rants on every topic - government, monetary system, constitution. There was even a rant about how the army trains people to think. In some cases it was just pages and pages of tinfoil ramblings. It was a real struggle to get through this one.
