In the first book of the new futuristic dystopian series from author Lisa T. Bergren, the chosen remnants must work to redirect humanity’s course.

The year is 2095. Gifted teens known as Remnants have been chosen and trained to act as humanity’s last hope to rectify the horrors that are now part of everyday life.

The Community has trained these teens as warriors and assigned them Knights of the Last Order as protectors. Together, they are a force that will be difficult to bring down.

But the Sons of Sheol, of course, are determined to do just that. As the Remnants begin their mission to course-correct humanity by saving and protecting key individuals, their enemies move to stop them, placing the entire world in peril.

7 Reasons Why Being an Empath Would Stink

By Lisa T. Bergren  

Andriana, my heroine and a Remnant, has the gift of reading other people’s emotions. This is generally a good thing, but as I wrote her story, I started to think why it wouldn’t be all that cool to be one. Here are 7 reasons why…

  1. All emotions are heightened. This is cool on the good-emotion front, but notsomuch on the hard-emotion front.
  2. For singles: You’d immediately know if someone was into you. Now, that might seem like a good thing, but where’s the sweet element of surprise? The delight of slow discovery over time? No, it’d be more like getting clobbered with the news.
  3. When other people felt pain/grief, you’d feel it as your own.
  4. In an argument, you wouldn’t just feel the impact from a raised voice or tension, you would feel their anger like a physical blow as well.
  5. Sometimes you just don’t want to feel anything for a bit, right? Just be neutral. Static. No such thing for an empath. You feel everything, all the time.
  6. You’d feel empathy for even your enemies. Yes, yes. I know we’re to love our enemy. But sometimes if you feel too much for your enemy it might overpower you from being wise.
  7. People might avoid you because they don’t want their emotions “read” until they’re ready to share them.

What’s your favorite and least-favorite emotion? Comment below!


  1. Favorite emotion is love and least is jealousy

  2. One of my favorite emotions is love, of course, and one of my least favorites is dread.

  3. Great Excerpt, I love the cover! Can't wait to read the book!

  4. My Favorite emotion is happiness, my least would be hatred.

  5. Favorite is happy. Being happy for yourself or others is just great. I don't love jealousy because that can lead to other emotions that aren't so nice.

  6. My favorite emotion is joy, my least favorite is embarrassment. I rarely have felt hate. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

  7. Favorite would be acceptance and least favorite would be rejection.

  8. Joy favorite, Disappointment least.

  9. I hate to feel so overwhelmed that I cry spontaneously. I hate losing that feeling of control. Favorite is joy.

  10. Hate rejection and shame; favorite is love. :)

  11. I think it might drive me crazy if I knew every emotion someone was feeling or every thought they are thinking. In some cases, it could come in handy.

    I don't like hate, rejection, fear, anger and the list could go on. My favorite would I guess be love and unselfishness.

  12. Emotions are too difficult to deal with!

  13. Wow...I think it would be unnerving to be an empath. You'd have a good idea if people we're being sincere or dishonest. Would make it harder to trust people.
