Reviews Genesis (Project Nemesis, #2)

  • H.L.
    [NOTE: I was given a physical ARC by Penguin Young Readers Group in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.]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 ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* Well, this 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!It is so fast paced! For a boo...

    Thanks to Edelweiss and G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.4 1/2 StarsI 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 ...

    3.25Project 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 Guardia...

    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!

  • Raven_Blake (dreamy addictions)
    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars!Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: Dreamy Addictitons ‘‘Phase Two has begun.Uploaded sequences must be sorted.You must find your place within the system.’’ OMG, this was brutally intense thrill ride from start to finish. It's like Hunger games meets Battle Royale. Genesis is one of my highly anticipated sequels of this year and it didn't disappoint me. Seriously, it was even better than the first book. It picks ...
  • Ricky
    Reichs returns in the middle entry of his gnarly, supernaturally deadly, seriously dangerous Nemesis trilogy. Going forward, I do have to drop major spoilers for Book 1 - or do I? I mean, the dust jacket blurb does a terrific job of not being too spoilery in case someone picks this book up by accident without having read its predecessor.But I'm not writing dust-jacket copy. I'm writing a review for Genesis and, maybe just a little, hoping it mana...
  • Christina (Ensconced in Lit)
    So great! Loved better than the first, review to come.
  • Brooklyn Tayla
    Thank you to Pan Macmaillian Australia for providing me with an advanced reader’s copy of this book, this of course no way impacts my thoughts on the book.In book one, Genesis, I was definitely interested in the story of Min and Noah, I hadn’t read anything like it before and was addicted and enjoyed the twists and turns…“Nemesis” took this to a whole new level.  This book was properly insane! There were so many twists and turns, I w...
  • YA and Wine
    Genesis is an absolute thrill ride from start to finish. With mind blowing tension and a cast of entirely unpredictable characters, this book will keep readers on the edge of their seats.After the explosive ending to Nemesis and the fascinating concepts we'd been introduced to as readers, I had high expectations going into this book, but in all honesty Genesis blew book one out of the water. Reichs has created a sci-fi world that is so smart an...
  • Caro Herrera
    Wait, what was that ending? I need more! And I need it now!This book was amazing. Honestly, I wasn't sure how it was going to pick up after the first one ended. Like, how in the world was Reichs going to make this plot twist work? But he made it work pretty damn well I have to say.This book was a great read, and had some elements of the Hunger Games series as well as Red Rising. I absolutely loved it, and my husband did too. In fact, he read it i...
  • Stephanie Ward
    'Genesis' is the heart-pounding second installment in one of the most original young adult series I've read. The plot is pretty intricate and woven together, so you need to read the first book before this one if you want to understand anything that happens. There wasn't anything about this novel that I didn't love. It was everything I had hoped for and more. I was a little afraid that this book wouldn't live up to the first installment. So many s...
  • Tiffini Hunt
    Oh my goodness! This book was amazing! I read it slower than I wanted, but when I could read, I would be sucked into the story! Min is a character that I connected with so well. I felt like I was her, I was waiting to see what would happen! I HATED Noah when I started this book! Man I didn’t know what to think. But I had a feeling he would redeem himself. I even wrote in a journal of things I thought would happen. Some were right, while others ...
  • Andrés Colón
    Nemesis wasn't the best book but the main thing that got me to pick up this second book was the ending of Nemesis had me intrigued. I don't regret getting it because I liked it so much better than the first. There are multiple plot twists and a lot of action. The only complaint was that throughout the first and second book I felt like the characters kept changing personalities throughout which at times disconnected me from them, but eventually it...
  • Kathleen Armstrong
    ALOT better than the first one! The only thing I’ll say is that it was very hunger games. And also the whole of this series didn’t need to happen if they all survived at the end anyway, like I’m all for a happy ending but it was a bit pointless to spend 2 books and have so much crude murder for them all to survive. In saying that I did still enjoy it. 3.5 stars.
  • Tim Gray
    I was a little nervous coming into this book since I didn’t like the sci-fi/dystopia ending of Nemesis. Well, I wasn’t let down. I loved this book and I especially liked the morals that each character held on to, or the morals they dropped. Really makes you think about what you would do in a situation like the plot of this I have a year to wait for the next book, but I’ll be sure to get it the day it comes out!!

  • Sara Clyndes
    I loveeeee the plot line - it carried on really well from the first book and I really like the characters. My only issue is the writing is a bit cliche (apart from the really weird similes) and it was slightly grating but other than that, very enjoyable! Give it a go!
  • Sara (A Gingerly Review)
    What a crazy ride! This had twists, turns, and surprises I never saw coming. If there is a book 3 - and there better be - I need it now.
  • Kate
    I really enjoyed this sequel and I can't wait for the next one!
  • Rebekah
    Genesis is that rare middle book that is even better than the series starter. A great read for fans of The Hunger Games, with all the action, intrigue, and moral dilemma, plus an even cooler (imo) female lead.
  • Charlotte Burns
    In this sequel Min is more carefully considering the implications of the ending to Nemesis, where she discovered the reason for her being murdered every other birthday and that she, and those who survived with her, were nothing more than computer codes in a programme designed to save humanity. Noah is taking a different approach: he is determined to win at all costs, even if he’s not completely sure what game he’s playing. It seems any buddin...
  • CrazyCat (Alex)
    Ready for PHASE 3!!!
  • Krysta Gray
    Criptic and thought provoking, this was a wonderful story. Though many dark times shadowed this book and made me gasp in shock, it was wonderful that humanity can still prevail even in the darkest of times. I can’t believe I have to wait until next year for the next book!
  • Fallen Catalyst
    There’s gonna be a third book!!!

    I think I set a record even for myself recently: I read a 500-page book in two days. What's the book, you ask? Genesis by Brendan Reichs. I picked it up at Costco, having read its prequel Nemesis. I liked the first book, except for the massive cliffhanger at its end. It was so massive that I almost didn't buy it, but I did, so I guess I fell for that. I'm glad I did, though. Genesis was one of the most taut, intense, dark books I've ever read...
