Publisher's Summary

A part of her died when she lost him.
Commander Terra Rush has spent the last eight months mourning Gryffin, believing he died when his ship crashed. When he returns to her, broken and scarred from months of torture at the hands of the Foundation, it feels like a miracle - at first.
His unpredictable mechanical side, reawakened by the brutality he endured as a prisoner, threatens to destroy him. He's lost the trust of the colonists. Has he lost part of himself as well?
Her need to protect her ravaged heart puts distance between them when they need to depend on each other the most. If the colonists are to survive, they need Gryffin to reunite the Nomad and stand with them...and he needs Terra's help to do so. But time and tragedy have changed them both so much. Can they find their way back to each other before everything they know is destroyed?

I was completely engrossed

Nemesis by K.A. Finn is the second book in a series called Nomad. With ties to the governing organization, the Foundation, and Earth broken, and rebellious people of the colonies are free, for the time being. The Foundation soldiers who turned away from their corrupt government when they discovered a history of medical experimentation on children, now try to maintain colony defenses against the growing Foundation threat. The Nomad, previously the power rebel group disbanded when their leader Gryffin was presumed dead. The few remaining Nomad have now entered into an uneasy alliance with the rival group the Hunters and the former Foundation crew. Unbeknownst to any of his friends, family, lover and the rebels, Gryffin lives and is back in the clutches of the monster that turned him into a cyborg when he was just a child. All groups must find a way to work together to fight their way free of their captors or oppressors or else risk losing their homes and their lives. Meanwhile, Gryffin must once again try to come to terms with his past, his growing family ties, and his relationship with Terra.

I really enjoyed this novel. Within a few minutes, the plot from the first installment of this series came rushing back and I was completely engrossed. While the first novel needed to focus on world building and introducing the characters, this novel had even more time to focus on the growing cast of characters and their evolving relationships to each other. There are a lot of moving parts: tons of characters, different loyalties, and both good and suspicious characters on all sides. Everything fits together really organically, which makes it easy to love the relationships and characters. I really felt that each of the characters had been given a lot of thought and each stood out as a memorable component of the story, which helped back of my feelings for each of them. The plot is also exciting as it is filled with intense feelings, action, and good pacing. One of my criticisms for the first novel was the abruptness of the relationship between Gryffin and Terra. This was not an issue in this novel. The relationship was almost maddeningly real. As before there were a number of twists, which really added a lot of excitement to the story. The end is action-filled and made me groan when the novel ended. I just wanted to find out what happens next. There was a definite end to the story, but left a lot to be explored as the story progresses into the next novel. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

The narration by Keith Michaelson was excellent. As in the first novel, he really captures the tone of all the characters. The voicing for each of the characters, including accents and tone, is perfect. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves complex space based science fiction filled with rebels and fighting against the oppressive government.

Worth The Credit!

Any additional comments?

A very entertaining, interesting and engaging story. Full of action, suspense, romance, mystery, betrayal, secrets, emotions, revenge and so much more. There is enough going on that there is never a dull moment. The story is fast paced and constantly moving forward. Definitely worth your time and credit.

I would not consider this a standalone book. I did not listen to the first book in the series and I think I would have enjoyed this story even more if I had. Many times you can read the second book in a series and completely understand what's going on with no problem. For me that was not the case with this book. Even thought the book drew me in immediately, It took me a bit to get the characters straight and get caught up in the story.

As well as a large cast of great characters the story is told through several POV's. Which just adds to the overall enjoyment of the story.

I need to go back and listen to the first book in the series to get the complete backstory and just for the pure enjoyment of it.

Keith Michaelson did a fantastic job with the narration. Nice voice. Very deep. Fits the main character perfectly. Clearly spoken. Nice even pace. Fantastic character voices. Different dialects and accents. Even his female character voices are great. Which is not something all male narrators can pull off. He made the characters and the story come to life through the narration. Very enjoyable
