There isn’t a lot else I can say without dishing out some rather large spoilers. Nothing is as it seems and I love it when an author can trick me into thinking the story is heading one way, only to take a massive about-turn and take me somewhere completely unexpected. I’ve heard a rumour that this may be the start of a series and if that’s the case then please consider this my pre-order for book 2! I loved the language, with the ain’ts and darlin’s and that distinctive Louisiana feel which the author writes so well.
Would I recommend this book? I would but I can’t get away from the fact that I found the first half such slow going. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it. Jonas-Hill is setting the scene exactly as she should. Without that first half nothing else would make sense! But oh, that second half is SUBLIME! If there had been a touch more oomph in the first part I would have given this book five stars. I can’t help thinking the problem was more down to me than the actual story telling so I’m going to give it four and a half stars out of five.
Four and a half stars out of five.
I chose to read and review an eARC of Nemesister. The above review is my own unbiased opinion.
There are so many twists and turns in this book that you will need to concentrate to grasp who all the characters are but there is a sh*t ton of action!
It reminded me of all the old horror movie cliches rolled into one .. who can you trust including yourself! Set mainly in Louisiana prepare yourself for some good ole country drawl which just adds to the tension and mystic.
As the woman slowly regains her memory we slowly unfurl events via flashbacks .. but is anyone who they think they are or is human nature so peculiar that the whole tale becomes bizarre? This will keep you glued and unprepared for the ending. It was a different style of writing for me but once I adapted I became fully involved and enjoyed Nemesister which is dark, deep and suitably chilling.
Thanks to Sophie and Urbane for my copy and Abby for inviting me to take part in the blog tour. I read and reviewed voluntarily.
Set in the swamps of Louisiana, Nemesister is rich in atmosphere and I loved the setting as the surroundings felt just as oppressive as the shack itself. I must admit I did find some of the early chapters a wee bit confusing at times and I wasn’t sure if this book was going to be for me but then suddenly I found myself gripped nonetheless and eager to find out more. The author manages to leave a trail of breadcrumbs and all the pieces of the puzzle culminate into an exciting ending that I couldn’t have predicted at all.
