I am thrilled to be taking part in the Nemesis & Genesis Blog Tour today! I am sharing the book and my current playlist for Nemesis with a review to follow soon because I am literally hooked on this one.
Nemesis (Project Nemesis #1)
By Brendan Reichs
Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons
Genre: YA Sci-fi
Orphan Black meets Lord of the Flies in the riveting new sci fi thriller from the cowriter of the Virals series.
It’s been happening since Min was eight. Every two years, on her birthday, a strange man finds her and murders her in cold blood. But hours later, she wakes up in a clearing just outside her tiny Idaho hometown–alone, unhurt, and with all evidence of the horrifying crime erased.
Across the valley, Noah just wants to be like everyone else. But he’s not. Nightmares of murder and death plague him, though he does his best to hide the signs. But when the world around him begins to spiral toward panic and destruction, Noah discovers that people have been lying to him his whole life. Everything changes in an eye blink.
For the planet has a bigger problem. The Anvil, an enormous asteroid threatening all life on Earth, leaves little room for two troubled teens. Yet on her sixteenth birthday, as she cowers in her bedroom, hoping not to die for the fifth time, Min has had enough. She vows to discover what is happening in Fire Lake and uncovers a lifetime of lies: a vast conspiracy involving the sixty-four students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.
Current thoughts: I am seriously devouring this one! Within a matter of pages, Nemesis sunk its claws deep into me and has refused to let go. This is a multifaceted story that slowly reveals various layers (think story within a story) that I am confident is leading to something incredible. Character development, pacing and plot are on par, offering a well-balanced experience that tips the scales just enough to remind me with each chapter why it is that I love science fiction. Full review to come. In the mean time here is a playlist I have compiled during my time with the book.
