    4.5*

    Well, 

    was a fun and addictive book! When it showed up at my door looking all giant, I was a little scared. Big books are scary. Sequels are scary. But neither was a problem here! So shall we chat about what made this a really good sequel whilst trying to be super vague because again, sequel? Great!

    For a book that's over 500 pages, it never once felt long.

    Well, 

    was a fun and addictive book! When it showed up at my door looking all giant, I was a little scared. Big books are scary. Sequels are scary. But neither was a problem here! So shall we chat about what made this a really good sequel whilst trying to be super vague because again, sequel? Great!

    For a book that's over 500 pages, it never once felt long. That in itself is a feat. But it just flowed really well, with a great combination of action scenes and downtime for character growth and development.

    Speaking of,

    . Decisions about who to trust, what to believe, all kinds of unknowns. It was both interesting and thought provoking to see how different people handle difficult, sometimes life-threatening situations.

    We get a lot more information on characters who were introduced in the first book. While this book is still primarily Min and Noah's story,

    I won't even tell you which because that in itself could be spoilers, but wow, some of them were handled so well. Some were in a moral gray area, some we just got to hate, but it was all really intriguing and ties in with my above point of watching people handle these situations.

    Sometimes in sequels, it is really hard to get back into the world and story. Not the case here!

    . It was just the perfect amount of reminder material to make me feel fully engaged in the story again.

    A lot of stuff went down in this book, and a lot of it was shocking (and in some cases, downright brutal and dark which I am always here for.) I definitely was- and still am, for the next book- kept guessing as to where the story would go next!

    I daresay this was

    Yes, one of 

    rare gems! The stakes just seem so, so high in this one. And I liked the direction the story took. The science fiction vibe is stronger with this one, and it fascinated me for sure.

    and I cannot 

    for answers!!

    The only thing that stopped me from giving this the full five stars was a

    It isn't even that I didn't 

    what happened it just... well view at your own discretion: 

    Such a stellar sequel. All sequels, take note, because this is how it's done. I am basically giddy excited for book three, because wow, need it.

    One of the of the few things I do not enjoy when it comes to books is when someone makes a book into a series. I am not a fan of reading series just because it is hard for me to get into the book and I find myself always critiquing it.

    One of the of the few things I do not enjoy when it comes to books is when someone makes a book into a series. I am not a fan of reading series just because it is hard for me to get into the book and I find myself always critiquing it. However, there are a few rare occasions when the book surpasses expectations and allows the reader to fully emerge in the book as they were able to in the first book. This is one of those rare occasions. Genesis picks up right after the chaos left behind in the cliffhanger in the first book, Nemesis, following Min, Noah, and the other sixty-two members of Fire Lake’s sophomore class. The characters have changed from Nemesis, there are two that have drastically changed (for they have become reluctant and almost cruel) in this new world. Without giving to much away I have to say that I became hooked almost right away. Genesis is a fast paced novel that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Reichs has done an incredible job of creating the roller-coaster ride of emotions that was needed and very much appreciated for Genesis. Genesis is a out of this world sequel to Nemesis and just when you think it could be over, you realize its not! If you haven't read Nemesis, read that and then make sure to read this enthralling sequel!

    Overall I am rating this a 4.5 out of 5 and as a must read!

    DAMN that was a wild ride. Didn't expect to read it so quick, it was so good.

    It was almost too much. I had to keep putting it down to take a break. So intense, and violent, and upsetting! I had to know what happened. I wanted to finish. But I just . . . it was TOO MUCH!

    I don't always find a sequel that's even better than the first book in a series, but that's what happened here. Genesis picks up exactly where Nemesis left off and even though I read the previous book over a year ago, I had no problem jumping right in. Adapting to this new cruel and brutal world they've been thrust into, it was mesmerizing watching how the various characters continued to evolve and cope, especially Min and Noah. The world-building and story is intense and I was on the edge of my seat from the first chapter. The book is over 500 pages, but I finished it in two days simply because I couldn't put it down. The ending was exciting and perfectly sets things up for the next book which I'm eagerly looking forward to!

    What happens when an apocalypse destroys Earth as we know it? Everyone is dead except for 64 teenagers who have been digitally put into a computer system. They don’t know how or why but they have been told only the survival of the fittest will make it out of the system and be put back onto Earth to rebuild human kind. Teenagers fight to the death, alliances are made, backstabbing can happen to anyone. Who will survive and who won’t? Can they really make it back to Earth even if they win? I loved

    Can we get a round of applause for Brendan Reichs, please?

    Because he has done it again. Left me, an emotional wreck with a fake smile firmly on my face to hide the pain, dangling from a precarious cliffhanger. But hey it's totally

    fine I should've known what I'd signed up for after Genesis.

    (spoiler of the first book)

    Sure it wasn't as good as Nemesis but for that to happen it would need to have somehow found another plot twist that sends you to a hospital due to the level of shock you experience. However, it was still an easy to read page turner.

    The only thing that grinded my gears if I'm being picky was the character development just seemed a lil fast and the switches in the characters attitudes were too rapid.

    Absolutely pumped for the third book, really need it soon.

    Project Nemesis is in Phase 2 and Fire Lake is in utter chaos. The 64 students saved from the destruction of the world have all gone berserk. After learning that only a set number will survive and be able to proceed to Phase 3 the students split into groups and commence in all out war. The rules are unknown. The consequences are deadly. The outcome is a mystery and only one person knows that the true purpose of Project Nemesis is, the Guardian, and he isn't telling anyone.

    This book is an all out bloodbath, as the instinct to survive takes ahold of the students. Kill or be killed becomes the mentality and they will stop at nothing to make sure they are one of the ones allowed to continue to Phase 3. Humanity seems to have disappeared from the lives of these blood thirsty teens, at least that is how it seems. Some have retained their humanity and cannot conceieve how their world has fallen so far into the pit of dispair.

    This book does a great job of showing the darker side of humanity, along with the moral code that is instilled in us all. We see this world from two different perspectives. Noah Livingston, a boy who has been betrayed or left behind by everyone in his life, takes the Program for what it is worth and tries to force his way to the top of the food chain. Min Wilder despises the Program and everything she represents, will she have to abandon her humanity to survive in this world?

    The book did drag in a few spots, and some parts seemed to redundant; however, it was s thoroughly engaging read. You really feel like this is how society would react in a situation like this, despite wanting to believe the best in people. I can't wait to see the final chapter of this story next year.

    I wasn't sure I was going to get to the end. The suspense last right up until the last page. If you're a Maze Runner fan, pick up this duology. All those characters feel very real and they'll keep you on the edge of your seat. My favorite scene was at the end so I won't spoil it for you. Did not see any of it coming. Excellent story!
