The similarities between the two series are uncanny; both had very large and very diverse casts, both had kids with superpowers, both had multiple overarching mysteries, both had somewhat of a KudzuPlot, and both had more NightmareFuel than a video of a war. But a lot of problems that Remnants had were fixed here. Scholastic wouldn't let Grant make Tate's lesbianism more explicit; Dekka is another black lesbian with a similar personality. Remnants often strayed into the ChrisCarterEffect; here, all the questions are answered. Remnants was written on the very rushed schedule of two books every month; Gone's schedule was much more relaxed. And it really did work; I've read both series, and although I enjoyed Remnants, this was entertaining in the same way while being much more satisfying and higher quality.

The story is that the gaiaphage was some sort of accidental seed thrown across the galaxy to spread life. The Ellimist's goal in his Third Life was to spread life faster than the Crayak could exterminate life. The gaiaphage could be the byproduct of one of these attempts.

They certainly bonded a lot in ''FEAR'' and seeing as it's the last book, it makes sense for everything to be rounded up and resolved. I think it would be a nice, bitter-sweet moment for them to finally, after all that conflict become friends. After all, they're {{notsodifferent}}

Does this one really need any more explanation?

quality.
** There's even some similarity in the naming schemes. Not only do they both use a lot of strange names and nicknames, but they both use the name Connie for a medical professional (in Remnants, she's only a minor character and [[spoiler: she bites it early on in the second book]]), and they both have a minor character with a name that's a pun on The Artful Dodger (The Artful Roger here, Roger Dodger in Remnants).
