The Remnant by Channing Whitaker

The Remnant

4 Stars

Publisher: Off Speed Press

Date of publication: May 21st, 2018

Genre: Fantasy

Where you can find The Remnant: Amazon | Barnes and Noble

Book synopsis (from Goodreads):

In this suspense-filled, neo-monster, horror novelette, a writer named Gene Winfield discovers an ominous, handwritten book among the belongings of his late, adventurer aunt. As Gene reads, he becomes captivated with the volume’s account of a savage, unearthly creature. In spite of the book’s warning, with his writing career failing, Gene can’t resist the inspiration. Near the roaring fire in his aunt’s otherwise cold, empty manor, Gene begins a story of his own, but will he unleash more than his imagination…

My Review:

Horror stories have always been hit or miss for me. I either love them or hate them. No middle ground. Same goes for short stories. Either they are fantastic or they aren’t. With The Remnant, it fell into the first categories. I loved the book and thought it was fantastic.

I am going to keep this review super short. Why? Because if I gave my usual in-depth review, there would be spoilers. There is no way of writing my usual review without revealing something from The Remnant.

I thought the plot was original. Gene was a writer whose aunt dies. When he goes to her house to clean up, he finds a book in the embers of a fire with a warning to him. Ignoring the warning on the inside cover/first page, Gene reads the book. What happens afterward, well you need to read the book to find out. Let’s say that it was scary and kept me glued to the pages.

The author did a great job at keeping me up after I read this book. A fantastic job. I don’t scare easy, so you know that if this book scared me enough to keep me up at night then it is good.

The ending of The Remnant was eerie. I did an “Oh no” when I realized what happened and what was going to happen. I will say this. I am excited to read more by this author!!

I am not going to do a like/dislike section. Only because of how short the book was and I could let some spoilers out by accident.

I would give The Remnant an Adult rating. There is no sex. There is explicit violence. There is language. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread The Remnant and I plan on reading more books by the author. I would also recommend this book to family and friends.

I would like to thank the author for allowing me to read and review The Remnant.

All opinions stated in this review of The Remnant are mine.

**I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it**
