Publisher's Summary

Orphan Black meets Lord of the Flies in this riveting new thriller from the coauthor 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 16th 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 64 students of her sophomore class, one that may be even more sinister than the murders.

Love Hate Relationship with this book

Nemesis has one of the best openings where Min is killed...only to wake up later in a remote part of the woods. She has no idea why it's happening, who the person killing her is, or what she has done to deserve the horror in her life. But she trudges on as best she can with her best friend at her side. But then things start to get even weirder. The earth is standing on it's last leg, and it's up to Min and her trusty sidekick to figure out what is going on, and fast.

I so wanted to love this book, and I will say the performance is on point! The book is divided between a female and male reader, and they both did a great job on narrating. However, the end of the book is what cut it for me. Without trying to give it away, there is a second book coming as it leaves it on not necessarily a cliffhanger, but there is much more to the story left unsaid. I can totally handle a cliffhanger...I hate them, but I can handle it, especially if it's a good one. But in Nemesis, I just became very infuriated that it ended in the way it did. Will I continue to read the series? Sure, because I want to know what happens, but at the same time what really was going on is just a little too mainstream movie for me. I did love the characters, and each was portrayed nicely with their own strengths and weaknesses. That being said Nemesis was a good book, and I did enjoy it until the truth became known. Again, too mainstream for me, and I have a whole bunch of unanswered questions rolling around my head. It's still a good read, and I do recommend it.
