I withheld one star for two reasons. First, Alexander's pining for Cassandra became tiresome after awhile. Second, the behavior of Apollyon and his gods seemed more sophomoric than in previous novels, nor were they as terrifying or imposing.
Remnant is quite good, and if you have enjoyed Godawa's other books or "historical fantasy," you will like this. I'm definitely looking forward to the next entry in the series.
While the scholarship shines bright, the characters and stories are equally a strong point making this one of the most fun reads you'll encounter this year.
Recommendation: Do not read Remnant before Tyrant as the character development in Tyrant serves as a firm foundation for this continuation. So get both today and be amazed at how the Apocalypse of John is presented in vivid detail of mostly historical characters and real historical stories of when the Pax Romana of the first Century was threatened from within the Empire.
Another compelling element of the book is how Godawa helps us see the natural conflicts within the church and churches between traditional narratives and conflicting narratives or interpretations. This is an important element because as Godawa notes, "This isn't your mother's Left Behind" series. What makes Godawa's books different than just the telling of tales is that they are thoroughly researched and he is able to justify as probable, if not true, through a wide array of scholarly sources.
If you like suspense, mystery, romance, and just good storytelling, this book is one to read.
I'm looking forward to volume 3, "Resistant: Revolt of the Jews."
My only complaint in this series (and the Chronicles of the Nephelim) is that I wished the evil was more in-depth and developed. But, while reading this book, it hit me. Evil IS banal. It is childish. Anything & Everything that has value in it has been stolen and is only a mask. At it's core and at it's heart, evil is a spoiled 3-year old chanting your name till you reply just to bother you. (Thank you C.S. Lewis and Pelandra)
This series so far has been entertaining, engaging, and rooted in the 1st century. I'm two books in and I'm loving every minute (except for the time between novels)
