I’m thrilled to be part of the Nemesis Blog Tour, a big thank you to the author for having me! I was lucky enough to be part of the Maven Blog Tour as well and I had really been looking forward to jumping right into book 2, Nemesis, and now I get to share it’s awesomeness with you wonderful people! ^.^
Nemesis picks up right where Maven left off. There’s a mystery to solve of what the Maven Initiative’s plan is and how to stop them, a sweet romance that’ll make you melt, and plenty of science-y goodness. There are plenty of new twists, multiple potential love triangles, and even a few naughty bits if that tickles your fancy. 😉
My personal favorite part of Nemesis is how easily Huchton incorporates the scientific/sci-fi elements into the story. There’s new exciting tools to use, gene splicing, and all of it is seamlessly integrated into the romance and mystery. While much of Nemesis focuses on the love triangle and some more mixed signals, a continuation of Maven’s theme, I didn’t feel it detracted from the plot. Huchton keeps you guessing with the mystery in a whodunnit atmosphere and every time I thought I had the bad guy pegged I was proven wrong, which while it was rather humbling was refreshing too. Oh and some of the reveals in this book are craaazy! My expression for much of the book > O_O
I really enjoyed Nemesis, it has a little bit of everything in it and because of that could be a great read for just about anyone. There are some mature scenes so just be aware of that going in, but I liked those too. Huchton’s style really shone in Nemesis and between that and it being the first sci-fi book I’ve read, probably since Maven, it provided a great change of pace and had me loving every minute. I definitely recommend checking it out, along with Maven if you haven’t read book 1 in the series yet, as a fun and often hilarious read.
