[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 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!
