Book Review: Remnants – Season of Fire

511XNkUORkL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Remnants: Season of Fire by Lisa T Bergren
Genre: YA/Sci Fi/Supernatural
Publisher: Blink
Date: March 3, 2015

Andriana learned a great deal on her first mission as a Remnant. She has also gone through tremendous loss and growth. She’s a different person than she was before all of this began. But she still has a lot to learn.

Now she and her Remnant team are facing new dangers, higher stakes in their missions, and she has to struggle with a brand new concern. Is it possible that Keallach, the man she was raised to see as nothing but evil and out for his own ends, could be saved? Could he be brought back into the fold to help the Remnants achieve peace through the land? She thinks so, but her Remnant brothers and sisters aren’t so sure. And the more time she spends with Keallach, the more lost in this mystery she becomes.

Lisa T. Bergren’s Remnants series is amazing. She once again treats us to beautiful realms, deep emotions and adventure that just doesn’t stop. While I was reading, it wasn’t unusual for me to get so lost in the world, that there would be jolt when I had to come back to reality. I want to say that I devour these books, but honestly, I think they devoured my mind! I didn’t want the reading to end. When I got to the last page and saw that the next book isn’t due out until 2016, I was unhappy to say the least. I know Lisa and I understand how much she’s juggling, but I really wish she could write faster!

These books are perfect for anyone who loves Divergent, The Hunger Games, or the Maze Runner. In fact I have found the Remnants series surpasses these books in nearly every aspect. Bergren has always been an incredible storyteller, but the plot she’s put into place this time is breathtaking. There’s always something happening that keeps the reader guessing and wondering what is around the next bend for these amazing characters. There are very few areas where the pace slows. Most often, you’ll find yourself completely caught up in the adventure and frantically turning pages to see what’s next. This is the kind of book that begs “just one more chapter” and then leaves you flailing in the wee hours of the morning, wondering what you’re supposed to do now that you’ve finished it.

I’m seriously unsure what I’m supposed to do with my time between now and 2016. I’ll probably be that annoying little fly buzzing around Lisa’s ear begging for news of the next book. In all honesty, I’ve never been disappointed by a book from Lisa Bergren and I can’t recommend them highly enough for anyone who loves books. She’s a favorite and has earned her well-deserved spot on my list of favorite authors.
