Review & Free Chapter | The Remaining by Travis Thrasher

In one day, everything changes…

The Remaining
Travis Thrasher

*** Special THANK YOU to Tyndale for providing me with a review copy. My review is my own personal opinion.***


The Remaining is a novelization of the apocalyptic movie from Sony Affirm. Just after a young couple says their vows, the earth shakes, and some people die suddenly and are taken away. The rest of their wedding party and friends are left to wrestle with what happened and with their faith. Characters struggle with secret love, dreams, hopes, and beliefs as they continue to evaluate their faith. This book and movie are both action-packed thrillers that will encourage audiences to think about their beliefs.


Critically acclaimed and creatively diverse novelist Travis Thrasher has made a career out of defying expectations.Writing stories that have moved, haunted and provoked readers, Thrasher has told tales in a variety of genres. His one common theme is brokenness, and his one common tactic is surprise. He lives with his wife and three daughters in a suburb of Chicago.

I love apocalyptic fiction and The Remaining is one of the most riveting I’ve read in this genre in a while!

I enjoyed getting to know the characters. At first the story jumps around a bit, introducing them little by little, but they are old friends coming together for a wedding that will take a very unexpected turn.

This book is dark and scary….more so than the ever popular Left Behind series, but in all honesty this time will be a very dark and scary time for many.

For me, this book was very entertaining, but also stirred something deep inside of me…an urgency to spread the gospel of Christ.

Heart-wrenching and suspenseful- you won’t want to miss The Remaining!!!
