Nemesis by Brendan Reichs
He killed me. He killed me not. He killed me.
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.
Nemesis was a fun read. I read it fairly quickly and I enjoyed it for the most part. It wasn’t what I expected, which I liked but Nemesis gave me some major The 5th Wave vibes. Not in a bad way but I think it could have been more original in some ways.
Nemesis was exciting and pretty unpredictable, which I really liked. I also really enjoyed the writing style.
I wasn’t really able to become emotionally invested in the characters but I liked them anyway.
Overall, Nemesis was a pretty good read. I liked it and I really loved how unpredictable it was. There was a lot of action and the cliffhanger will probably get me to pick up the next book. I wasn’t able to really fall in love with the characters but that wasn’t a major deal breaker.
