Book Review: Nemesis by Brendan Reichs

h poor Min fighting for her life – literally. And losing – also literally. But it’s not the first time. For either the fight OR the loss…

What a great and original concept – it’s about seven different types of stories, packed full of enough action and drama to please even the most easily distracted… It’s technically a YA book, because it has a YA protagonist. But it could easily be “general” fiction because there are so many issues in here that are relevant to a broader population. It’s also technically a thriller, an apocalypse story, an analysis of family dynamics, a little Lord of the Flies, and… Like I said – there’s a LOT going on here. And all of it is quite good.

I will admit, I did see shades of the big reveal coming – but it still played out beautifully and I was engaged right up to the last pages. It cliff-hangs (it is, after all, parenthetically titled “Nemesis #1” on Amazon) but not in a bad way – while there would clearly be loose ends if you never revisited Min’s world, this installment doesn’t leave anything essential unanswered or open-ended. I hate when a series book does that – you can leave teasers, I like those, but don’t strand me in the middle of a thought…

I myself will definitely make a point of rejoining Min and Tack and Noah though – there are a few twists at the end that I would not have seen from a mile away, and I’m exceedingly eager to see how they resolve themselves in the next volume. This is a great find – and one I discovered thanks to Penguin RandomHouse’s Readathon (#Project Readathon). Check it out, it’s an amazing way to donate books AND find new reads like this one!
