The Risen: Remnants is the third book in The Risen series by author Marie F Crow. This book is a complete story unto itself. Readers of Marie F Crow's previous series titles, The Risen: Dawning and The Risen: Margaret, will find a new cast of characters from the same region following the same timeline as The Risen: Dawning.
The cast of Remnants provides a compelling story as the reader is once again introduced to the Risen, and the dynamics of the choices people make when confronted with their own mortality in an apocalyptic world.
The main character, Beth Clark, is a single mother who, along with her daughter Genny, experience unimaginable horrors. This book is told from Beth Clark’s point of view as she details the events as they unfold.
Beth Clark lives of the edge of an abyss. Everyday is spent fighting for her survival and the survival of her teen daughter, Genny. Their lives have been shattered by a vaccine that was supposed to have been a modern miracle. A vaccine that is turning the living into monstrosities of their former selves.
Now, only remnants remain of their past lives. Mother and daughter will struggle to survive with what this new world holds for them as they discover the dawning of the Risen.
“Please Lord, don’t let my daughter see me die today.”
About the Author
Marie F Crow is the author of the post-apocalyptic series, The Risen. She weaves her stories around the human element of the horror verses the "monsters" themselves. She believes that the real horror of life does not come from the expected, but from the unexpected responses of the human nature and what depths of trauma a person has to survive in certain situations. She began writing The Risen series when feeling that the popular genre was slipping too deep into the realm of pure "slasher" and forgetting what the horror of zombies can mean for a story. Now with her children's series launched, Marie hopes to use her favorite "monster" as a teaching tool to inspire children to understand that not everything that looks scary, is scary. With Abigail and Her Pet Zombie series, Marie hopes to further spread her love for all things "that go bump in the night" with small children showing them that it's okay to be different and to embrace those same differences in those around them.
