The year is 2522. Anna is a Remnant—a secret Christian in a world that has banned any form of religion.

She is also an astro-geologist working with her Robot, named Z, for the Planetary Science Commission.

The PSC has worked for 200 years to find alien life on another planet, and finally, after two centuries, a primitive lifeform has been discovered. Faced with the reality of evolved primitives on a forested moon, Anna begins to question all she has ever believed.

Anna and Z travel to the newly-discovered moon in search of answers, but a terrible accident leaves them stranded. Faced with dangerous natives and unfamiliar surroundings, Anna and Z stumble upon a conspiracy that has universal implications.

Will Anna discover the truth about the moon and its inhabitants?

Can God still move within a culture that has abandoned Him?


Remnant is a fast-paced, hard-hitting sci-fi that echoes present day society. Reminiscent of the styles of Jerry B. Jenkins and Timothy Zahn, Daniel Peyton brings to life a world of science and faith by asking: how far would one go to erase God?

Remnant weaves an interesting, futuristic story from historic Old Testament threads.

Daniel Peyton’s Christian science fiction novel, Remnant, is a powerful story that challenges the arguments that have always existed between science, evolution and Christian beliefs. Set well into the future, with characters molded to perfection (not unlike Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel, Brave New World), the plot thickens on multiple levels: good and the power of faith against evil. The characters are realistically developed and the newly discovered species on the unknown planet/moon are created with simplistic wonder. The story that evolves appears very plausible. A great page-turner of a read and one that will certainly make one look again at the power of faith, the power of believing.

This is a different kind of writing for author Daniel Peyton who is known for his wizards, dragons and superheros, so I jumped at the chance to read this. We first meet Anna, who besides being a secret Christian also is an Astro-Geologist for the Planetary Science Commission along side her robot Z . Life has been found on a moon which makes Anna question her faith and what she believes in. I could not stop turning the page to find out what Anna and Z would find when she decides to go to the newly discovered moon to find answers, only to be stranded by a terrible accident. I soon discovered that Anna and Z are faced with a place they have never been to, natives they know nothing about, and a conspiracy that could have a deep impact on the universe and on Anna. This story is filled with questions for Anna that need to be answered and what better way than to have Anna find the answer for herself. Daniel has written something you don’t see authors writing about, a Christian Sci-Fi that is totally exciting, adventurous, and on the edge of your seat as you need to keep reading as to not miss anything.
