    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.

    If you thought book one was a rollercoaster, wait until you dive in to

    .

    As a refresher, at the end of book 1, Noah has gone to the dark side (dun dun dun!!!) and he's working through Phase 2 by killing people (I.E. THAT GIRL YOU LIKE, MIN??? HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT BETRAYAL, MAN?).

    Min's been trying to survive this newly ruthless world as best she can, but her instincts rebel against letting others choose who lives and who dies. New secrets are revealed--game changing ones, I might add, that make Min, Noah, and the whole sophomore class of Fire Lake question what they thought they know.

    *screams into a pillow for 10 minutes*

    I'm in such a frenzy after this book and it's just been such an awesome rollercoaster ride and now I can't believe it's over. And that we have to wait till Spring 2019 for book 3.

    lived up to all of my expectations and even though I gave it the same rating as book 1, it was

    .

    The action is more action-y than ever, the situation is more ruthless, and the secrets that come out are just hitting us by the dozen. It's like how

    was better and more intense than

    --but this time with a plot that's actually different than the first book.

    I really enjoyed how much Min changed in this book. In the last book, I wasn't too keen on her because she felt

    perfect, but now she's going through all these changes because of the situation that was the sort of growth and flaws that I was looking for in the first book. She's stepping up to the plate and making mistakes along the way and I ended up liking Min the best in this book, which was a pleasant surprise!

    Noah's as tormented as you could imagine (seriously, he has these parts italicized that are kind of like a psychopathic voice in his head. ~spooky~). I did like how he worked towards redeeming himself in this book, and his start to his character change

    to being good was enjoyable to see.

    Ultimately, why I took off a half star was because I wanted Noah's redemption to go a little further. I wanted all the murder's redemption to go a little further.

    that I can't reveal happens at the end and it helps redeem themselves, but what I really want to see is evidence of this happening.

    Which, because we're getting a book 3, is actually kind of a silly complaint because we're almost certainly going to see this happen in the next book, but I'm grasping at straws here, okay? Give a reviewer a break and let me try to find something wrong with this. (Operative word: try.)

    There were so many little details in this that made it so much better than the first, like that one sly lesbian couple Reichs slipped in (YASS) and also just Tack in general (my poor baby).

    The plot was just so engrossing. I sped through this entire book very quickly and it's honestyl really sad how fast it went because now I wish I savored it more. Oh well, I guess it's just time for a reread.

    But the mystery aspect was executed really well, and if you thought the reveals in

    were all Reichs has up his sleeve, well, let me just inform you that you are very,

    wrong.

    was such an amazing read and totally knocked book 1 out of the ballpark. If you're a sci-fi fan like me, or anyone who just loves action or conspiracy stories, I totally recommend you jump on the

    train. (I'm begging you please do it; I need someone to scream with me about that cliffhanger 😭.)

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!
