* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first book is the only one where nobody dies violently, although it technically has the highest body count of any book in the series, since every human on Earth dies in it. It's also the only one where the plot approaches what could be called "normal."

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first book is the only one where nobody dies violently, violently (unless you count Cordelia, the girl Jobs has a crush on, who gets impaled by a support beam when a chip of the Rock destroys San Francisco Bay), although it technically has the highest body count of any book in the series, since every human on Earth dies in it. It's also the only one where the plot approaches what could be called "normal."

Written by Creator/KAApplegate and Creator/MichaelGrant (the co-authors of ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' and ''Literature/{{Everworld}}''), ''Remnants'' is a 14-book Young Adult series published in the early 2000s. The series ''begins'' with a giant asteroid called "The Rock" striking Earth, obliterating the planet and all life on it. A last, desperate gambit by humanity is enacted, The Mayflower, a space shuttle rapidly retrofitted with experimental technology, including hybernation berths. Eighty people are shot off into space for the distant hope that someday, they can awaken and find a new planet to refound human civilization on. When they're plucked from space by a sentient super-ship called "Mother", and come into contact with the aliens that call her home, the series proper begins. No one gets out without sacrificing their body or sanity in some manner.

''Remnants'' is a dark series, with violent deaths in nearly every book. Aside from the art history and group politics, this is what happens when you combine LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters with AnyoneCanDie. The author promised that Jobs and Mo'Steel would survive; anyone else is fair game. And yes, believe it or not, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids this is a kids series.]] That does not stop it from being one of the darkest things ever written. Unfortunately, the series is a shining example of TheChrisCarterEffect: expect numerous plot points and mysteries to go unsolved and character arcs to be brought to a screeching halt when someone is killed off or a shocking twist is revealed. This culminates in a GainaxEnding of the highest order.

* TheBechdelTest: Surprising for something aimed mainly at boys, the series passes with flying colors. There are numerous female characters and they are given a lot of depth and development.
