"I was just as entertained by Nemesis as I was by its predecessor. And now I can only wonder where the series goes from here ... because it sure ain't over yet!" --Patrick Hodges, award-winning author of JOSHUA'S ISLAND

As with any great conflict, there are two sides to every story. Told from Kai Awana's perspective, Nemesis offers an alternative narrative to the events that transpired in XODUS. Through his eyes, we are able to delve into Kai's intricate past, his internal conflicts, and his complex relationships with XODUS' protagonist, Lali Yavari, and (surprisingly) XODUS' main antagonist, Cade. With Kai's personality as its main star, Nemesis shines with quick-witted remarks and laugh-out-loud punchlines throughout its pages.
A must-read for every Astralis fan, K.J. McPike's Nemesis is a treasure trove of new information about the past and future of the Astralis universe (i.e. filling fans in on what really happened to Lali's mother, Xiomara, during those first few months and the rise of a NEW and SHOCKING "big bad"), and serves as a deeply personal case study of what it means to be truly human; a constant struggle with one's own morals and conscience.
The author did a masterful job referring to events from XODUS with amazing accuracy and not once did Nemesis feel like a rehash of its predecessor. This time, Kai takes you on his journey to find his sister Kala and it's full of moral conflict, heartbreak, and a handful of challenging circumstances.
If you enjoyed XODUS, Nemesis is a must read!
I couldn't stop reading. It's hard to comprehend how good the writing is in this book. To create such conflict in me. I don't know if I liked this book, but at the same time I know it was perfect. I've never read something quite like that. It makes the review super hard. On one hand I want to give it 10 out of 5 stars. On the other, I'm not sure.
I think it's safe to say that I'll be waiting for the next in the series because I want, no I need, to see what happens next. Which I guess gives me my answer that this book did everything it was supposed to do.
With K.J. McPike’s superb storytelling skills, I was once again sucked right into the story from the very first page. Being inside Kai’s head was great and made me love his character even more. He was easily relatable and I completely understood and sympathized with him on the things he had to do because he truly believed it was the only choice he had in getting his sister back. He struggled with the rights and the wrongs and that added to the likability of his character. He was doing villainous things, but he wasn’t a villain.
Reading Nemesis, greatly added to the story world K.J. McPike has created and I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoyed Xodus.
In Nemesis, we get the events of XODUS - before, during, and just after - from Kai's perspective. While a lot of the scenes, conversations and events were not as fresh the second time around, it was interesting getting said events from the opposite perspective.
Needless to say, Kai is a complicated cat.
I must say, I love Kelly McPike's writing style. It flows well, and I was just as entertained by Nemesis as I was by its predecessor. And now I can only wonder where the series goes from here ... because it sure ain't over yet!
